Health Guarantee

   

1. It will be up to us, the breeders, to decide when the puppy will be ready to go to its new home. Usually at the age of 8 weeks and depending on the weight of the puppy and how easily it is weaned from the mother. We will not, under any circumstances, let the puppy leave before it is ready. There is an additional $12 a day charge for puppies kept longer than 10 weeks of age. 

2. The puppy is guaranteed to be in good health at the time of sale. 

3. The puppy will be up to date on shots and worming at the time of pick up. It is very important that you continue the vaccinations and worming. Please do not expose your puppy to other dogs that are not vaccinated until he/she has completed the entire vaccination schedule - around 16-20 weeks old. 

4. The puppy will have been vet checked with dew claws removed at the time of sale. 

5. The buyer, at their own expense, should have the puppy examined by a Licensed Vet within 72 hours of receiving the puppy. 

6. If within 72 hours, a Licensed Vet finds the puppy to be unhealthy or unfit for sale, the puppy may be returned for a full refund or a replacement puppy from the same litter if available - provided the puppy has not been injured or neglected. The veterinarian must provide a written statement deeming the puppy “unhealthy for purchase”. 

7. This guarantee does not cover any health issues caused by neglect or injury from the buyer. 

8. This guarantee does not include minor illnesses and health issues such as colds, allergies, internal or external parasites or umbilical hernias. However, the breeder will disclose any known illnesses or health issues prior to the sale. 

9. The breeder cannot assume responsibility for this puppy after 72 hours of the sale. It is the responsibility of the buyer to care for the puppy properly and keep it free from harm. Please remember that your puppy must be treated with great care and protected from danger. 

10. The breeder assumes no responsibility for any medical expenses incurred after the sale. 

11. The breeder assumes no responsibility for training difficulties or behavior problems. 

12. The breeder does not guarantee size. We will give the buyer the weight of the puppy’s parents and the weight of other puppies out of that mating. 

13. The breeder does not guarantee fertility or ability to place in shows. The puppy is strictly sold as a Companion Animal only. The breeder does not provide any warranty as to the Dog’s fitness for any specific purpose, including obedience trials, show ring performance, and/or breeding purposes. 

14. The breeder will give a one-year guarantee against any inherited defect which impairs life and/or the ability to function as a pet. If this should occur then the puppy will be returned to the breeder, and the buyer will receive another puppy of the same breed when there is one available. In order for the guarantee to take effect, the puppy must have been properly spayed/neutered.
