This SAMPLE Pug Ownership Agreement is meant to be a basic agreement and will be modified to suit each
individual Pug and the Co-Owner(s). Please ask if you are unclear about ANYTHING in this document.

This Ownership Agreement is written to protect our Pugs. Sales contracts are not always enforceable
after the purchase price for any “goods” or service has been paid. Our Pugs are like family members and
we consider them to be more than “goods” and we hope you do, too. We consider them our responsibility to
protect, so we must be able to enforce these conditions after the money is paid and the Pug leaves us. We
do not expect to have any problems with our buyers, and we do not intend to find any fault with how they
care for the Pugs after we sell them. However, we must ensure we do what is necessary to protect them
from anyone not willing to honor the terms of this agreement, which is only meant to keep them from harm.
We hope you understand.

If there’s any part of this you don’t understand, or you’d like to change, please don’t hesitate to ask! I am
reasonable, but I’ve had to deal with some people and situations that have made me think long and hard
about what’s written here. If there’s a better way, I’m willing to consider it. Life is too short to be
difficult for either of us, or the Pugs!
