Clarifications Between Buyer & Seller
Our 30 month Guarantee (age of dog 1 day to 30 months of age) covers Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (“OFA”) certification of hips (fair, good, or excellent).

The dog is guaranteed to be healthy upon release to Buyer to the best of our knowledge. Vet certification is required for any dog becoming ill following 48 hours after delivery or pick up if you feel your dog picked up a communicable disease prior to leaving our premises. If your dog becomes sick before leaving you are required to take him/her to the vet.

Buyer must, during the dog’s 12 month of age, have the dog’s hips and elbows digitally x-rayed by a license veterinarian. The x-rays must be sent to the “OFA” for PRELIMINARY CERTIFICATION. A copy of the results from OFA AND the original xrays must be sent to Seller by Buyer within 30 days after notification from “OFA” stating the results of the “OFA” PRELIMINARY CERTIFICATION in order for the full 30-month guarantee to be honored. Failure to do so will result in the 30-month guarantee to be null and void.

If the dog does not receive a passing rating from “OFA” between 24-30 months of age, the buyer can choose from one the following options:
a. Keep the pup, and receive 1/3 off the purchase price of a replacement pup. Breeder requires proof of spay or neuter of the dysplastic pup before honoring guarantee.
b. Keep the pup, and receive 1/3 of the original purchase price back. Breeder required proof of spay or neuter before honoring guarantee.
All shipping costs will be the responsibility of the buyer.

By signing this contract, the buyer acknowledges they have been informed young bones do not properly calcify until 12 months of age. Buyer acknowledges we will guarantee the hips and elbows until 30 months of age, providing the buyer agrees they will not allow environmental conditions to adversely affect the development of the hip and elbow structure. Buyer will provide a certified nutritionally complete food that will not promote excessive growth or obesity. Buyer will provide regular moderate exercise. The buyer is aware if they allow the dog to engage in activities that would stress the hips before the age of 10 months the hip and elbow guarantee becomes null and void. Activities include, but limited to, exercise on hard unyielding surfaces, continuous running, repetitive jumping, jumping higher than their elbow, training in competitive dog sports, or any activity that may cause injury.
