|Hereditary Defect Guarantee
guaranteed against these contractible diseases for 72 hours. Please take the puppy into your veterinarian for a complete
physical within this time period.
This puppy is also sold with a 24 month guarantee against hereditary heart, eye and joint defects. The breeder has made
every effort to breed only animals that are clear of inheritable problems to the best of our knowledge. Both parents and many
prior generations are certified to be free from the following hereditary defects: bilateral hip dysplasia, bilateral elbow dysplasia,
patellar luxation, cardiac defects, vision affecting eye defects and allergies. These certifications are very important to insure
the best possible health outlook for the offspring; however, a small percentage of puppies from cleared parents may still
develop defects due to the complicated inheritance patterns and environmental factors that influence these defects. In order
to qualify for this guarantee, the above described dog must be 24 months of age or less at the time of diagnosis. The puppy
must not have been neglected, abused, injured, over exercised, or kept overweight prior to diagnosis, and your veterinarian’s
records must be provided to verify this. The Feeding/Care Instructions provided must have been followed, and receipts must
have been kept to prove an approved food was fed as per the guidelines. The dog must be positively diagnosed by the OFA,
and the condition must affect the dog’s quality of life. The diagnosis must be non-functional grade I to III bilateral elbow
dysplasia, not including DJD by itself, or non-functional grade I to III hip dysplasia, not including subluxation by itself, eye
conditions must be vision affecting, and heart conditions must be more severe than a murmur. Other known hereditary
conditions are also covered if they affect the dog’s quality of life. Not covered: ligament/cartilage damage/arthritis of the stifle
joint or unilateral damage to hocks, shoulders or other joints as this is due to injury. Minor items that are not covered: Minor
hernias, undescended testicles, off bites or missing dentition and environmental allergies.
If the above described dog is diagnosed with a hereditary defect and all above terms and conditions are met, the buyer will be
given the option to keep or return the dog. Regardless of the buyer’s decision to keep or return the dog, the buyer will have
the option to receive a full refund of the purchase price or a replacement puppy as soon as one becomes available. Color and
sex of replacement puppy not guaranteed. Buyer also agrees that if unable to keep this dog for any reason, that it will be
returned to the breeder for placement into another approved home.
I have read and understand the above conditions and agree to these terms.
