for a period of one week that the puppy is free of disease and require
the purchaser to have the puppy vet checked within 48 hours upon receiving
the puppy in order to make this part of our guarantee valid.
we do our best to only breed healthy dogs that have tested clear of these
problems, occasionally genetic problems can randomly occur, much in the
way that downs syndrome in people can radomly occur. If such a thing
happens, we will either (at our discression) refund up to the origional
purchase price towards vet costs or replace the dog with another.
will provide the dog with a loving and caring home and, to the best of
your ability, keep the dog safe.

months of age will not be considered.
the right to cancel this guarantee and repossess the dog if the dog is not in good condition
or looks to have been mistreated in any way. We do not intend this
statement as an 'out' for ourselves but to protect ourselves from
unscrupulous practices ... we have discussed with other breeders at
various times stories that would make you cry ... people accidentally
dropping puppies on their head and then calling the breeder back
to complain that the puppy is not in good health and has epilepsy,
agreement is void if the dog is not on a
diet that is approved by your veterinarian. We
require that you feed a premium food and not a lower quality food such
as Alpo, Pedigree, etc. Many health
problems in dogs can be contributed to or caused by imbalanced or
nutrition or (unbenownst to many people) a diet too low in
or from being overfed. We require that you discuss
and follow the recommendations of your vet regarding amounts and brands
of food that you are feeding your puppy. Look at the ingredient
list; the first ingredient should be a MEAT 'MEAL' and not a grain!
agree to contact the Breeder immediately if you can no longer look after
the dog at ANY point during the dog's life. If the rest of the agreement
has been followed, the breeder will pay the buyer up to 3/4 of the purchase price
if the dog is returned in the first year after the sale. Thereafter
the breeder will pay the buyer up to 1/2 of the purchase price. Payment
will be made after the dog has been rehomed.
