I'm not sure how all the legalities apply here - but I don't think that they can approach you after six months and ask you to sign a contract that you don't agree with AFTER you got the dog.
We did not sign anything as nothing was offered to sign. I wrote a check in March as a deposit. When we picked our puppy up in April, I wrote a check for the balance ($400 total.) I was worried that the dog might legally still be the rescue's too, but I am not familiar with that type of law! I guess that's why I'm worried!
