Please read the Health Warranty completely before placing a deposit on a puppy. By placing a nonrefundable/transferable deposit on a Cockapoo puppy (via the Wait List or Available Cockapoo Puppy) you are agreeing to the terms and conditions within this Purchase Agreement/Health Warranty.  It is highly suggested you print this page and keep in in your records.  A hard copy is not provided at pick up.

This document acts as a bill of sale (receipt) and/or transfer of ownership from Deborah Van Laan, Acura Cockapoos, to the above stated Buyer when all transactions and transfers are made.

Once you have reserved your puppy for a specified price and later a similar puppy is offered at a lesser price, the price of your puppy does not change. We sometimes, not often, reduce the prices of particular puppies as they age or change, etc.

Acura Cockapoo Puppies, LLC reserves the right to refuse to place a puppy with a family even after a deposit has been accepted. Sometimes after a period of emailing and phone calls, things come to light or become clear which make me feel I will not be able to work comfortably with an individual/family and keeping the puppy's best interest in mind, I prefer to place it in a different home. If I exercise this right, the deposit will be returned in full and all business between Seller/Buyer is completed. Under no circumstances will we sell to pet shops or brokers.


ALL deposits are non-refundable/transferable unless the Cockapoo puppy is found to have a medical issue that will keep the Cockapoo Puppy from being a quality lifelong companion.   If, at the 7 week well puppy veterinarian health check, the Cockapoo Puppy is determined to be unfit for purchase, the Buyer is entitled to 1) an available cockapoo puppy 2) refund of deposit or 3) if there is a wait list at that time go to the top of the wait list and select a puppy from the next available litter only. Failure to take a puppy from the first litter voids the responsibility the Seller has to the Buyer.

Deposits are non-transferable. Once you select a puppy, place a deposit on a puppy, that is the puppy you will take home. You cannot transfer to another puppy or litter at a later date.


If at any time within 1 (one) year  from the date of birth of the Cockapoo Puppy a licensed veterinarian certifies the Cockapoo Puppy to be unfit for purchase due to a life threatening/lethal genetic/congenital defect/disorder ONLY  the purchase price of the puppy only will be reimbursed.  

The following defects are not considered serious/life threatening and not considered hereditary; are not covered under any part of the Health Warranty:  

  • underbite/overbite
  • undescended testicles
  • umbilical or inguinal hernias
  • regrowth of dew claws
  • cherry eyes 
  • grade 1 or 2 luxating patellas
  • grade 1 or 2 innocent/juvenile heart murmurs,
  • kidney/Bladder/Urinary Tract Infection
  •  allergies
  • ear mites
  • other common puppy problems such as fleas, lice or ticks, coccidia, giardia, parasites (internal or external), kennel cough or any other type of bacterial /viral infections.

Parvovirus or Distemper are not covered by this Health Warranty  at any time as the puppy has only been started on it's inoculations prior to going to their new home and family. Your puppy's immune system is not fully developed until he/she has completed it's series of puppy vaccines.  It is the Buyers responsibility to safegaurd the cockapoo puppy in a way as to not contract the disease.  It is highly recommended this be a conversation between the Buyer and their veterinarian at the 72 hour well pet check up and follow the instructions given by the veterinarian.

Should the puppy be diagnosed with any life threatening congenital/hereditary defect, a veterinarian’s report must be submitted in writing, along with all testing results supporting the diagnosis, and signed by a licensed veterinarian at Buyer’s expense. Seller MUST be notified of the health diagnosis within 24 hours of the licensed veterinarian’s diagnosis and must receive veterinarian reports and supporting testing documentation within 72 hours of veterinarian diagnosis.

Seller reserves the right to have the Cockapoo puppy examined by a veterinarian of the seller's choice before exchange or refund is given. 

If a puppy is euthanized or dies, an autopsy to determine cause of death MUST be performed by a licensed PATHOLOGIST, at the Buyer’s expense, and that cause must be genetic/congenital/hereditary for a refund (of puppy’s purchase price only) to be applicable.

This warranty is void in the event of an undetermined or inconclusive diagnosis.  

If Buyer opts for a replacement Cockapoo puppy and refuses the Cockapoo puppy when offered by the Seller, the Seller is released from all obligations to the Buyer.

No refunds will be given at any time for travel to/from veterinarians, shipping/travel expenses in any capacity for the puppy/dog, x-rays, laboratory fees, any treatments, medications or any veterinarian fees/care  unless outlined above.


BUYER AGREES to take their puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 72 TOTAL HOURS (including week ends and holidays) from date/time of pick up/delivery  from the Seller.   If your regular veterinarian is not available, you are required to take the puppy to another veterinarian.  Failure to have this exam on file will cause this guarantee to be null and void. 

BUYER AGREES to neuter/spay the puppy on or before Cockapoo puppy's 7 month birth date.  This puppy is sold as a companion dog not for breeding purposes.  Failure to have the puppy spayed/neutered renders the Warranty null and void.

BUYER AGREES to keep the Cockapoo Puppy/dog on a regular vaccination program, regular heartworm/flea preventative and worming schedule per the recommendation of their veterinarian. Failure to do so will render the Warranty null and void. This is protection of health/safety for the puppy/dog.

BUYER AGREES if at any time the Buyer is unable to keep the Cockapoo Puppy/Dog they may, at Buyer's expense, return the Cockapoo along with all Medical records, fully vetted for age and freshly groomed to the Seller.  Buyer must deliver the Cockapoo to the Seller at Buyer's expense.  The Buyer agrees they will not be reimbursed in any way (monetary or other) for returning the Cockapoo to the Seller.  

BUYER AGREES the coat type of the Cockapoo will vary as characteristics are inherited from both the poodle and the cocker spaniel. There may even be some variety within a litter. The three possible coat types are a tight curly coat, a loose wavy/ringlet coat and a straighter coat.  Acura Cockapoos, Inc. does not guarantee the coat texture of a puppy as it matures to an adult. We do not give any guarantee for adult size/structure, color changes, coat texture, eye coloring, shedding or hypo allergenic. Once you select a puppy that is the puppy you will go home with regardless of size, weight, height, coat texture or color.

BUYER AGREES that if any time during the purchase phase of the sale of the Cockapoo Puppy, Acura Cockapoo Puppies, LLC has the authority to cancel a sale of the cockapoo puppy prior to the pickup date/time for any reason without notification or explanation to the Buyer.


At no time do we reimburse for time off work, travel time or gas expenses.   

We do not warrant the temperament of our Cockapoo puppies. Temperament is determined by genetics and environment. Too often, nice puppies develop temperament problems as a result of the way they were raised after they leave the are of the Seller. We have no control over environment once the Puppy leaves the care of the Seller.

BUYER AGREES It is understood and agreed to by the parties to this agreement that this agreement and the purchase and sale of the said dog shall fall under the jurisdiction of the laws of the City of Irmo, South Carolina and the State of South Carolina and that any matters with respect to this Agreement shall be dealt with as per the laws governing this location.  It is further understood that any circumstances, situations, disputes arising which are not covered within this Agreement shall be remedied at the discretion of the breeder and the breeder's decision shall be final and binding. This agreement is non-transferable.  

This Health Warranty is non-transferable. It is only in effect for the original BUYER whose name appears on the PayPal Deposit, Venmo Deposit  provided to make the original nonrefundable/transferable deposit.
