1.The Seller guarantees the puppy is in good health, is up-to-date on immunizations appropriate for the puppy’s age and has had appropriate worming’s at the time the Buyer takes possession. The Buyer has three (3) business days to take the puppy to a veterinarian for an examination. If the puppy is found to be in poor health, the Buyer has the option of returning the puppy to the Seller, at Buyer’s expense for a full refund, or keeping the puppy. The Seller will reimburse for all veterinary costs, up to the purchase price, related to treatment of said pre-existing condition. If the puppy is not taken to a licensed veterinarian within the three business days, the Health Warranty is void.
2. The Seller provides this warranty for two years after the date of sale against any debilitating congenital defects and against all of the things we genetically test our parents for. In the event the puppy exhibits symptoms of a suspected debilitating congenital defect, the Buyer must supply any requested veterinary records to the Seller. That means that if your puppy is shown by your veterinarian (and our vet confirms at buyer’s expense) to have a parental-tested defect that requires surgery, we will pay for the surgery up to the purchase price of the puppy. An additional 2 years will be added to the warranty if kept on PawTree dog food.
3. This warranty does not include viral illnesses, infections, improper bites, hernias, hypoglycemia, and worms, Guardia or Coccidia. It also does not include any illness due to the ingestion of foreign objects, food, chemicals or physical injury.
4. If it is determined the puppy does have a genetic disorder that is identified within two years of purchase, the Buyer has the option of (1) either a replacement puppy from the next available litter of equal value Or (2) reimbursement (up to the purchase price of the original puppy) of veterinary expenses related to that illness. Your puppy need not be returned to us. Shipping fees will not be refunded, and if it becomes necessary to ship a replacement puppy, those fees are to be paid by the Buyer.
5. If the puppy should die from a suspected congenital defect within the 24 months of its date of purchase, an autopsy must be performed at the purchaser’s expense by a veterinary teaching hospital or state licenses DVM acceptable to the Seller’s own veterinarian. If the autopsy shows a congenital defect as the reason or the death, the Seller will provide another puppy of equal value to the purchaser. A written statement from the veterinarian must be provided. This warranty is void in the event of an indeterminable or inconclusive diagnosis.
6. The Breeder has made a reasonable judgment regarding the eventual adult coat of the puppy. However, as these are living beings, this judgment does not guarantee the eventual adult coat nor is there a guarantee of the eventual allergy-friendliness, degree of shedding or color of the coat at maturity.
7. No warranties or guarantees, expressed or implied, are made under its contract except as stated.
8. This warranty is non-transferable.

6. The Buyer agrees to provide basic obedience training with their puppy within the first year of owning their dog.
7. The Buyer should use reasonable judgment with their new puppy. Puppies should not be brought to a public place (i.e. pet store or park) until they have completed their full cycle of vaccinations due to risk of contagious illness. This warranty is void if this condition is not met.
8. The Buyer agrees to postpone strenuous, repetitive exercise until after the puppy is over 1 year of age.
9. Spay & Neuter: This puppy is sold as a companion pet only, NOT for BREEDING purposes. Breeder requires the puppy to be spayed or neutered by 9-12 months of age, at new owner's expense. When Owner provides proof of the spay/neuter, Breeder will provide pedigree papers if requested. The proof must be from a certified Veterinary Hospital, on paper, showing the pets description, breed & Micro Chip number. If proof is not received, Breeder's 2-year warranty against genetic disorders will be null. Failure to honor the spayed/neutered conditions of this contract can result in the Breeder reclaiming the dog without compensation to the buyer and a $8,000 Breeding Dog Fee will be charged. This amount is based on the average Breeding dog fee of $12,500.00 minus the puppy priced already paid of $4,500. If necessary, legal action will be taken to collect damages and Buyer will be responsible for all legal fees.
THE BUYER AGREES TO SPAY OR NEUTER THEIR PUPPY BY 9 MONTHS OF AGE and provide documentation of proof of spay/neuter to seller.
