Health Guarantee

We have done all that is possible to ensure that your new puppy is in good health. We want you to know that our relationship with you does not end when you take your puppy home. We are available to answer any questions you have to the best of our knowledge. The animal’s health is guaranteed by the seller to be free from any inherited disease which impairs a long life, such applies for up to one year of life. If such an inherited defect should occur, be verified in writing by a qualified veterinary specialist, the seller agrees to replace the animal upon return of the animal to the seller.

As a conscientious breeder, we’d like you to believe that nothing can or will ever go wrong with any of our puppies. However, to be realistic, we know that some things are not in our control. It is very important to your new puppy’s health that you continue to provide all the necessary vaccinations, a healthy diet with quality dog food, regular veterinarian care, adequate living conditions, and lots of love. To start off right, it is necessary that you take your puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 3 business days of receiving your puppy (excluding weekends), so you and I can both be sure that your puppy arrived happy and healthy. Please start a folder of your puppy’s medical records and be sure to keep a copy of all vet checks. Failure to provide your puppy with timely inoculations or regular vet care will void this guarantee. Please take the health record that we send with your puppy to his/her veterinarian, so they can see what vaccinations and deworming that has already been given and will not re-do them unnecessarily.
