Our Guarantee:

All puppies sold which we have bred are guaranteed to be free of congenital defects for one (1) year, unless your puppy has been sold "as is" or prorated, then the guarantee is not applicable, unless other arrangements and or agreements have been made between the two parties, and shall be in writing. We guarantee your puppy for the first 12 months of life against any genetic diseases (Heart, liver, patella's, eyes and hips.) Surgical corrections which are covered by the guarantee include severe cases only, these of which will obviously effect the dogs quality of life, (example being a grade 3 or 4 luxations, blinding cataracts, crippling hip dysplasia).

We make every effort to guarantee that each puppy bred by us is in perfect health at time of adoption/delivery. Therefore we ask that you have your puppy checked by your veterinarian within 72 hours of acquiring him/her to validate health guarantee. We cannot control what your puppy is exposed to after leaving us, if you choose not to have your puppy examined, the guarantee contract is void. Bacterial or disorders that may be caused by environmental factors, immunity level, parasites, mites, pneumonia, mange, heatstroke, ringworm, conjunctivitis, fleas, ticks, ear infections, hypoglycemia, allergies, these conditions are treatable & are not covered by this guarantee. An off bite, hernia and the descending of both testicles is not covered by the guarantee unless the animal was sold to be show quality.  Puppies that have been sold as pets MUST BE NEUTERED or SPAYED and certificate must be sent to breeder or genetic guarantee is VOID.

If your puppy is found to have a congenital defect, the puppy shall be returned (at Buyer's expense) with registration papers and a written explanation from a licensed veterinarian stating the problem. Once re-examined and validated un fit for sale by breeders veterinarian, the puppy will then be replaced at no charge. If you elect to keep the puppy and treat, then arrangements can be made with us to assist with the cost of said treatments. We will not pay more than one quarter of the original cost of the puppy, or 25% of medical treatments, whichever is less. Any vet bills incurred to diagnose or treat a problem will be the responsibility of the buyer, unless prior arrangements have been made with, or approved by us.

All puppies bred and sold by us will be accompanied by an accurate and up to date medical record. Puppies will be checked by a veterinarian prior to delivery or shipping and are guaranteed to be sound and in good health. Puppies, whose age at the date of sale precludes completion of the scheduled series of vaccinations, must have the remainder of vaccinations completed by the purchaser, ON TIME, in order to protect the puppy, and for this health guarantee to remain valid. A timetable for the necessary vaccinations will accompany the puppy. The puppy should not be exposed to premises known to be, or suspected of being contaminated, nor should the puppy be exposed to any unhealthy animals until this series of vaccinations has been completed. This series of vaccinations takes approximately 16 weeks to complete. If puppy dies within 10 months of delivery/pick up,  buyer must have an autopsy performed by a licensed Veterinarian at buyer's expense to determine cause of death. If cause of death is due to a genetic related issue, a replacement puppy will be given. The replacement puppy will be of same/equal value. A replacement will only take place if the above puppy has been properly cared for while in buyer's possession and all necessary documents must be provided as proof of such care.

I have read and understood the above.
