The American Tibetan Mastiff Association ("ATMA") On-Line Breeder Directory Program is an opt-in member privilege created to assist potential puppy owners with making contact with ATMA members who breed.
ATMA On-Line Breeder Directory Program participants are ATMA members in good standing bound by ATMA's requirements, which specify qualifications and expectations.
ATMA does not inspect, monitor or regulate the breeding or business practices of its On-Line Breeder Directory Program participants. Moreover, it does not become involved in resolving disputes between participants and their customers. Accordingly, ATMA does not endorse, guarantee, recommend or otherwise approve any particular breeder(s) or guarantee or accept any responsibility for the health, temperament or any other aspect of the dogs sold by the participants. All information produced by the On-Line Breeder Directory program has been provided solely by the participants.
ATMA strongly encourages all buyers to carefully document, in writing, all representations, promises, statements, warranties and guarantees made by sellers of Tibetan Mastiffs. The seller should sign such documentation or provide a purchase contract that covers the same provisions. The seller should also proceed to fulfill his/her obligations throughout the life of the dog.
