The seller guarantees your puppy to be free from infectious diseases and congenital defects for 72 hours after the puppy leaves our premises. (Hip and joint problems can be caused by or influenced by overfeeding, improper diet, failure to maintain proper weight, failure to provide sufficient exercise, over-exercising or improper exercising which would be out of our control.)
I, Corinne Griffith , the breeder of this AKC (male/female) puppy whelped guarantee that said puppy purchased by buyer, is in good health at the time of purchase with no known defects. Buyers acknowledge they have the opportunity to have said puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of purchase at their own expense. If the puppy is determined to be physically unhealthy with a congenital defect, the puppy may be returned to the breeder at your expense (travel/shipping) with the veterinarian’s statement (and x-ray is if relevant) and purchase price will be refunded. If the buyer decides to keep the puppy, the buyer shall assume responsibility for all treatment expenses.
With documentation by veterinarian, that is dated within 72 hours of buyer’s receipt of the puppy, that shows serious untreatable infectious illness or genetic defect which is sufficiently serious in the opinion of two qualified veterinarians, at least one of whom is selected by the seller, to warrant euthanization of the dog, buyer will be refunded the price of the puppy or given a replacement puppy from the seller’s next available litter. Transportation costs (if any) will not be refunded and are not included in this guarantee. Expenses of treatment, exams and tests are the financial responsibility of the buyer.
Seller will provide the buyer with a puppy that is clean; in good general health and that has no known physical defects. Deworming and first immunizations will have been completed and detailed in writing. It is recognized that intestinal parasites (worms, etc.) are common in puppies, and are a part of a puppy’s early development but we will make every effort to prevent parasites. Often, however, the stress of change and travel can cause intestinal parasites to emerge. Buyer agrees to continue parasite testing and treatment (if necessary) with their veterinarian.
Failure to have the puppy examined by a vet within 72 hours of the date the puppy is delivered to buyer or if buyer fails to provide required immunizations, treatment, or de-worming, will mean that this health guarantee will be void.
Buyer agrees to keep their puppy at home and away from other dogs, public places, parks and will use care in allowing others from outside their home to pet or touch the puppy. This is to protect the puppy from exposure to parvovirus and other infectious illnesses. New owners will not enroll the puppy in obedience training classes until all immunizations are completed around 14 weeks of age.
Seller does not guarantee temperament. Our pups have demonstrated great stable temperaments. All our puppies are temperament tested and sound when delivered. We take great pains to provide a secure, loving environment for our puppies from birth and provide daily proper socialization. After delivery, the responsibility is on the buyer to provide a good environment with proper socialization.
It is the buyer’s responsibility to keep the puppy free from harm and bad interactions with other people, dogs, and animals. Any negative exposure of the puppy to a bad experience with other dogs or people can cause lasting effects. Be gentle with your puppy and use positive reinforcement (praise him when he does “good” - ignore his mistakes, don’t overuse the words “No”) to train him. Do NOT hit your puppy or do silly things like rub his nose in urine or feces “accidents.”
