Shipping fees will not be refunded.

 

The following conditions apply to the sale of the aforementioned puppy:

 

  1. The buyer has three (3) days from the time of receipt of the puppy to have the puppy examined by a veterinarian. Any request to return the puppy to Seller for a full refund must be made within this time period and may only be requested should the puppy prove to be sick upon arrival. Proof of examination must be provided.

  2. A warranty against all life threatening or seriously debilitating genetic disease is provided until the dog is one year of age.

We do NOT require you to return the dog.

  3. A warranty for Hip Dysplasia is provided for one year. This warranty will be terminated should the dog be allowed to become overweight or developing joints be overstressed at any point during the first year.

Buyer must provide Seller with proof in the form of documentation from PennHIP or OFA. We reserve the right to confirm the results before a replacement or refund is provided.
