Our Puppy Health Guarantee is that every puppy will be in good health at the time of sale.
We begin worming the puppies at 2 weeks of age and continue every two weeks until the puppies go home. At 8 weeks of age the puppies visit the Veterinarian where they receive an examination and their first immunization. Once the puppy receives its health certificate, the puppy can go to their new home at 8 weeks of age. We will send the puppy home with a puppy packet containing their health records, suggestions about care and AKC registration. We do everything within our control to ensure that you are delivered a healthy and socialized puppy that is free of disease.
For the protection of the buyer and seller, the buyer must agree to have puppy examined by a licensed Veterinarian of their choice within 48 business hours of puppy possession to verify the puppy's state of health. This shall be at buyers expense. This initial examination is mandatory to start the Replacement Warranty. Failure to do so will void this contract and its guarantee. If within those 48 hours the puppy is found to have a life-threatening defect, the buyer may return the puppy (Within 5 days of the purchase date and at buyers expense) for a replacement puppy (with equal or lesser value; with same coat, color or gender) as soon as one becomes available.
