This puppy is guaranteed until 2 years of age against fatal and life altering congenital disease which adversely affects the health of the animal.
If the dog dies in this time frame, the buyer must pay to have a necropsy done to ascertain cause of death. If cause of death is congenital, the Seller will replace the puppy/dog with a pup of equivalent value as originally purchased.
A puppy showing any serious genetic or congenital defect will be represented as follows:
The animal must show the defect by one year of age. The Seller must be notified of the problem within two days of appearance of the issue, and within two days of the licensed veterinarian’s determination and have two reports from two unassociated licensed veterinarians stating the same puppy with the same problem and it is caused 100% by genetic factors. Seller will provide a replacement puppy of equivalent value. If Purchaser fails to notify Seller of an issue with the pup or the vet’s findings within the two day’s time, guarantee is considered void. Please remember that as the breeder of this puppy, Seller expects to be notified immediately if there is a problem or suspected problem with the puppy.
It is understood that certain physical faults may be present in a pet quality puppy that would prohibit it from competing in the conformation ring. These include, but are not limited to: curled tail, underbites, and overbites. These are not covered under this contract, and a puppy presenting or maturing with these faults does not warrant replacement or refund, as they are cosmetic and not life altering or life threatening.
No replacement/refund will be given if the puppy/dog has been bred or euthanized without the seller’s permission.
Replacement puppy will be mutually agreed upon by both parties and will be of comparable quality. It is understood that the replacement puppy may not be from the exact same parents as original puppy, and that the Seller is not required to place a show quality puppy with Purchaser for the sake of receiving a puppy right away. It is understood that if a replacement is given, Purchaser may have to wait for the next available litter.
All items covered under this guarantee are by replacement only.
Refunds may be given up to the purchase price of the puppy ONLY IF Seller decides upon the option to refund rather than replace a puppy. These reasons could include (but are not limited to): suspicion of neglect or injury, improper care given to original puppy, or relocation of the Purchaser to a region that would require shipment. If any part of this contract is violated, no refund or replacement will be given!
Purchaser is responsible for transportation costs to and from the Seller on the replacement.
No refund in part or in full will be given for transportation costs.
This guarantee applies to the original puppy only and is non-transferable to a second party if the puppy is re-homed.
The Seller will not be responsible for any medical expenses incurred. Purchaser is fully aware that owning a puppy/dog means trips to the veterinarian and understands that he/she will be responsible for all payments and transportation costs.
As of the pick-up date, the puppy/dog has received proper vaccinations and de-wormings. The purchaser has been informed of these and future vaccinations and de-wormings due. The current shot record is provided and is to be taken to the purchaser’s licensed veterinarian in order to provide information at the time the pup is being vet-checked. Annual shots and health exams are at the purchaser’s expense which also includes any illnesses that may occur during the life of the puppy/dog.
The Breeder is not responsible for Distemper, Parvo, and Corona Virus after 24 hours of sale as these are highly contagious diseases and they can be contacted immediately after leaving the breeder. This guarantee does not include: fleas, mites, coccidia, giardia or any other intestinal worms/parasites as they are common in dogs and puppies. We will not be responsible for illnesses or health problems which are diagnosed after this period of time except where stated in this contract.
The Breeder is not responsible for heart worms. Purchaser is required under this contract to provide heart worm prevention once a month for said puppy/dog’s entire life.
A returned puppy/dog must be returned to the seller in good condition, at the buyer’s expense. All registration and papers must be returned to the Seller. No refund is given for any puppy/dog returned. If shipping is required to return the puppy/dog to the Seller, that is the Purchaser’s responsibility.
There are certain disorders that may be caused by environments; for example: allergies, thyroid dysfunction, demodectic mange and other autoimmune disorders that are not covered by this guarantee.
Our guarantee does not include poisoning, accidents, negligence or behavioral problems, as training philosophies and environments vary amongst individuals. All training expenses are the responsibility of the purchaser.
Any physical problem which is or could be the result of injury is not covered under this guarantee.
