All Puppies purchased must be taken to the Buyer's veterinarian within the first 48 to 72 hours (2 to 3 ) days after receiving the puppy, proof must be provided within two weeks by mail. If this is not done, the health guarantee becomes invalid and Buyer assumes all responsibility for the health of the puppy. If picking up on a weekend I do overlook those days BUT he/she needs to be checked on Monday or Tuesday any date after that guarantee will be void. (It should be noted that diarrhea is common among puppies that have been moved to a new environment. This is normal and is not covered under the health guarantee. This will normally subside as the puppy gets used to its new home and surroundings.) It is necessary for the Buyer to complete the schedule of inoculations on-time to protect the puppy's health, and for the guarantee to remain valid. We recommend that you should talk to your veterinarian early about the prevention of heart worms in your puppy. It is required that the Buyer will have yearly exams for the puppy including heart worm detection, fecal examinations, and all safe vaccinations required by law by your veterinarian.
Anesthetic deaths are not covered. Anytime an animal under goes anesthesia the owner and veterinarian assume liability. Many times, anesthetic deaths go without a specific diagnosis due to the many variables that are involved.
Over Vaccination Breeder is not responsible for any shots that are administered by you or your Veterinarian if are done in any combo shot lepto or lyme till a year of age.
Flea and Heartworm Treatment Please do not give together and do research giving together can be a toxic killer in puppies and dogs will not cover this.
Heart Murmurs should be diagnosed during the initial veterinarian examinations and I will not ship puppy if my veterinarian examination finds this condition. Heart murmurs can occur for many reasons and usually do not affect the pet's quality of life. Any other heart murmur that is diagnosed after the initial veterinarian examination must be affecting the day to day life of the pet and require daily medication to qualify for replacement puppy.
Hip Dysplasia is guaranteed for the first year of dog/puppy life x-rays need to be done and looked over by my vet as well.
See Surgical Intervention: top of last page.
Behavioral problems are extremely complex in nature with many factors influencing the overall behavior of the pet. The main influence of behavior is the home environment and the owners. Breeder is not liable for behavioral problems.
Testicles on male puppies are not guaranteed. Customer will be notified prior to delivery if 1 or both testicles are not present. Puppy is sold as a pet.
Worms and parasites Every effort will be made to ensure that none are present in the new puppy. Due to life stages of these hosts, I cannot guarantee there will never be any present in the puppy. These hosts can include worms, Coccidia and Guardia. These can be brought on due to the move, stress, change of diet, too much handling and not quiet time and not eating properly. These conditions are treatable and are not covered under this guarantee.
Ear Mites and Ear Infections Every effort will be made to ensure that none are present in the new puppy. Due to life stages of these hosts, I cannot guarantee there will never be any present in the puppy.
Colds and Influenza The Puppy will have a veterinarian examination before transporting. I cannot guarantee what the puppy may contract in air or ground transport.
Mortality of a puppy will require a full necropsy (not partial) along with a full blood toxicology report to determine if the breeder is responsible for replacing the puppy.
If within the first year of the puppy's life, it is found to have a life-threatening heart, liver, or kidney congenital defect, send a detailed letter of explanation from your licensed veterinarian as to the nature of the defect and how it was found. Breeder must be notified at once at the onset of the problem. Breeder's veterinarian will interpret the report and if he concurs, a replacement puppy will be given. No refund, in part or in full, will be given. The owner will then qualify for a replacement puppy when one becomes available.
Minor defects that are of little consequence for the puppy's health are not covered. Such as; a minor under bite, over bite, or hernia. Obvious hernias, if any, will be repaired before shipping or told its too small to repair.
Stress: causing this condition is due to; 1) Over handling young puppies and not letting them get enough rest and sleep. 2)A puppy refuses to eat for over a period of 8 hours due to change of home and/or food. 3)Exposure to low room temperatures for a period of time or sleeping in drafts. All veterinarian charges, incurred by the purchaser, are the sole responsibility of the purchaser and will under no circumstances be paid by the breeder, including all spay or neuter charges. The breeder guarantees a healthy companion pet, but does not guarantee adult size, color, and temperament. Nor does breeder guarantee for breeding.
Puppy has received the first worming's and vaccinations necessary for its protection to date. You must take the vaccination record we give you to your veterinarian so that he knows what vaccinations were given. Guarantee is null and void if veterinarian examination wellness checkup is not done in time given. If puppy is found to have a health problem at its initial veterinarian examination and purchaser opts to treat puppy instead breeder is not responsible for any expenses incurred or for the death of the puppy. This guarantee does not include any illness due to ingestion of foreign objects, food, chemicals, or physical injury. This guarantee is void in the invent of an indeterminable or inconclusive diagnosis and if puppy has not been kept current on worming, vaccinations and scheduled veterinary visits. Proof of all veterinarian records must be provided if is claim is made.
Surgical intervention to resolve any medical defects under the following conditions: all needed surgery will only be performed following consultation with my veterinarian who will determine whether he or an associate would normally perform the needed procedure or if the procedure is even needed. Should surgery be required and agreed to by the consulting veterinarians I will pay up to 50% of the purchase price of the puppy or 50% of the surgical cost, whichever is the lesser amount. This is a onetime occurrence.
To qualify for replacement puppy a second opinion from an unassociated veterinarian is required followed by consultation between my veterinarian and your veterinarian. If a puppy is shipped back for any reason the buyer is responsible for shipping cost.
This document must be signed and dated before puppy leaves breeder.
