"B" Litter Puppy Agreement (2009)


Adelshaus Kennels is a not-for-profit kennel dedicated to performance-based American Small Munsterlander Pointers compatible with those of Germany but oriented towards North American hunting conditions; the conservation of our precious wildlife; and dedicated to raising the levels of the world-wide gene pool for this remarkable versatile breed. We are not professional breeders per se; rather both my wife, Cathi, and I are dedicated to both popularizing the breed among hunters and enhancing the Small Munsterlander gene pool in America.


This Agreement applies to the final 5 puppies in the Adelshaus "B" Litter. The Price of the puppy is $800 less performance rebates. (For details see Below) Those wishing to reserve a puppy may do so by supplying a signed copy of this agreement along with a deposit check of $100. Puppies will be available for pickup (or shipment paid by buyer) after June 21, 2009.
