Please review my health warranty. Every puppy will come with a health warranty if I receive a signed copy. Please review it closely. If there is something you are confused by or don’t agree with, I need to know before you send a deposit. If you send a deposit before realizing you don’t agree with certain aspects of the contract, you won’t be entitled to a refund. So PLEASE review the contract in advance.

Every effort will be made by (seller) to insure that the puppy is delivered in a healthy and sound condition. Once puppy is shipped or the puppy is picked up, the buyer becomes responsible for said puppy. In order to activate the guarantee as described herein, it will be necessary for the buyer to have an examination by a veterinarian (DVM), at the buyer’s expense, within 48 hours of the puppy reaching the buyer’s home. No proof is needed to confirm the exam unless the puppy is found to have a heredity defect within the 1st year of the puppy’s life.
If the veterinarian finds the puppy/dog not fit for sale because of a life altering defect, buyer has option of keeping the puppy or returning the puppy and getting a refund (excluding additional fees such as shipping and misc. charges the buyer and seller had to pay). All expenses concerning the return of the puppy is not the responsibility of the seller. At no time is the buyer allowed to send back the puppy if an internal or external parasite is found because they can be corrected over a short period of time. There also cannot be a return of the puppy if the follow ing is found: tracheal collapse, open fontanel, hernias, or luxating patella (these conditions aren’t life threatening, the pups can still live a fulfilling life with no problems). If buying a dog for breeding, I will guarantee against a collapse tracheal at time of sale. If an open fontanel is found, the buyer would be made aware. If buyer would like to return the puppy because of the problems just listed, they will only be refunded 50% of the purchase price, minus misc. fees. They will also need to pay all delivery costs and understand that the previous costs for delivery will not be refunded either.
If the buyer complies with the veterinarian’s examination as set forth, then the seller guarantees the puppy until 1 (one) year of age against any life threatening congenital defects of heart, spine, lungs, kidneys, and liver only (includes hydrocephalus at time of sale and portosystemic shunt). If the puppy is priced at $1000 or less, this guarantee is only valid until the puppy is 8 months old. If the puppy has a life threatening congenital defect, buyer has 12 months to choose a replacement puppy of equal or lesser value of the original puppy (value includes the purchase price of the original puppy and fees that were paid for health testing if there was any). If the buyer picks a puppy with a greater value, they understand that they must pay the difference. Both the seller and buyer will come to the agreement on if the pup will be returned or kept by the new owners. If kept, buyer accept full responsibly and care of the puppy. The buyer will pay for the expense of sending the replacement puppy as well as miscellaneous fees if the dog is returned. In the event of death, an autopsy must be performed, (at the buyer’s expense), by a licensed veterinarian of their choice to determine the exact cause of death. The autopsy must then be made within 3 days of the puppy’s death. If no autopsy is made within 3 days of the puppy’s death, there will be no replacement puppy and buyer forfeits all guarantees and warranties. If buyer doesn’t pick a replacement puppy within 12 months from the time the original puppy was proven to have a defect, buyer will forfeit the replacement puppy. If no puppy is produced or available within 12 months then the buyer must pick a puppy on the next available litter. Buyer must choose a puppy that is available. If the buyer doesn’t like any of the puppies that are available and choose not to get a replacement, then there will be no replacement puppy given.
Buyer understands that the breeder does not guarantee against coat type, coat color, coat length, size, weight, conformation, temperament, reproduction ability, or any trait that has to do with the outside/physical look of the puppy
Breeder does not guarantee against hernias, collapse trachea, any type of parasites or mites, mange, hypoglycemia, luxating patella, and/or any condition that can be corrected over time or through a vet or can be caught/created at any time. These problems aren’t reasons to return a puppy if they are proven in the initial puppy examination that is required for this guarantee. If there is any compensation given, it is up to the seller on the amount given.
All breeding males are guaranteed to have BOTH testicles and a good bite at time of sale (or at 8wks of age). If this puppy is a male and isn’t old enough to evaluate the bite and testicles, then they will be evaluated when they are old enough. If the bite is not up to par then the buyer has right to switch the deposit to another dog/puppy only.
Copies of Vaccination record will be given to new owners to give to their vet and keep for their records. Buyer must follow their vets Recommendations on future vaccinations, wormings, and overall care concerning the puppy. If at any time the puppy needs to be returned to the seller, copies of the puppy’s vet records must be sent to the seller (including any vet care the buyer provided).
