This puppy has been examined by_______________________and is guaranteed to be in good health, to the best of our knowledge. The purchaser has a health guarantee extending to the close of business, _________________, in which to have the puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian. If the veterinarian determines that your puppy is clinically ill from an injury sustained or an illness likely to have been contracted on or before the date of purchase, you have the following options: 1. Return the puppy along with a letter from the examining veterinarian within 48 hours of diagnosis and receive a complete refund of the purchase price.           2. Return the puppy for a replacement puppy of equal value when available. 3. Retain the puppy and  receive reimbursement for reasonable veterinary fees, not exceeding purchase price. Treatment and fees will be reviewed on a case by case basis and in some cases, a second opinion may be required.

If within 30 days of purchase, a licensed veterinarian determines your puppy has a congenital or hereditary defect which adversely affects the animal's health or will lead to death, you have the same options outlined in the above paragraph.   In some cases a second opinion may be required before reimbursement will be given. In no case shall the reimbursement exceed the purchase price of the dog.

Your puppy has been bred from parents who have normal hips. This does not guarantee that your puppy will not develop hip dysplasia. The development of canine hip dysplasia is not dependent only upon genetics, but environment (exercise and feeding) as well. Inappropriate exercise can harm immature developing joints and may affect their ultimate development. As we cannot control how you feed, exercise and care for your puppy, there is NO GUARANTEE AGAINST DYSPLASIA.

The purchaser has also been made aware of the Pennsylvania Puppy Lemon Law and received a synopsis of the said law.



It is further understood and agreed that no warranty or representation has been made with respect to the sold puppy, except as set forth in writing in this agreement.
