Conformation & Limited Registration

All reasonable efforts were taken to produce a litter that conforms to the current AKC Havanese Breed Standard. This puppy is being sold as pet/companion quality and it shall be understood that at the time of sale, this animal is NOT considered to be of show or breeding quality, but is representative of the breed and is structurally and temperamentally suited as a pet.   This dog is being sold on a "limited registration," which means that he/she should NOT be bred, and no litters produced by the breeding of this animal will be accepted by the American Kennel Club for registration. If the Breeder has not done so before the time of sale, this dog must be spayed/neutered between the ages of nine (9) to twelve (12) months at the Buyer's expense.  The Breeders/Sellers will hold the AKC registration papers until all terms of this contract, including the spay/neuter requirement, have been fully met. After the dog is spayed/neutered and the Buyer has furnished the Breeder/Seller with a Veterinary Certificate of Sterilization, the Breeders/Sellers will mail the AKC registration papers to Buyer.
