   We take the responsibility of placing these puppies very seriously. We reserve the right to cancel the contract if any information has been given from the buyer either verbal or written that is false, misleading and or would prove to be an unfit environment or match.

A complete refund of original purchase price is offered for any of the following defects diagnosed no later than 27 months of age:

1. Crippling hip displatia requiring surgery or euthanasia

2. Genetic eye problems causing blindness

For lesser problems that should in no way affect the working ability of the dog we offer a 50% refund of the original purchase price of the pup

1. Mild or moderate hip desplasia reading from OFA no later than 27 months of age

2. Non-affecting but non certifiable eye problems no later than 27 months of age

The following conditions apply for any full or partial refunds

1. The dog must not have been bred at any time prior to the findings

2. The x rays to support a finding of hereditary hip desplasia must be taken prior to ninety days after the dogs second birthday

3. A bitch must not have been x-rayed within 1 month of a heat cycle, start or finish. According to the OFA, and veterinary resources a bitch in heat has more subluxtion in her joints and the results of an exam at that time may be compromised.

4. A dog must be maintained in healthy physical condition, receive proper nutrition, exercised regularly, and NOT overweight for his or her height. OFA and veterinary resources state a dog that is not regularly exercised or is overweight has more sublexation in the joints and the results of an exam at that time maybe compromised.

5. The dog must not have suffered at any time a trauma or injury to the area in question

6. Written documentation is required from two qualified veterinarians or veterinary ophthalmologists. We may at our expense also obtain an additional, third veterinary opinion.

   We must receive copies of OFA (x-rays) or ophthalmologist exams with in thirty days of diagnosis. Refunds are only made on the condition that the owner has made a serious effort to train the dog, and has maintained the dog in a healthy and well exercised environment with proper nutrition. Dog covered by contract has been spayed or neutered and we receive a veterinary certificate stating this. If the animal has been bred this contract is null and void. We are not commercial breeders and these are the only guarantees offered in regards to this litter. The guarantee applies to the original purchaser and does not transfer to new owners if sold.

Any additional fees incurred in the process such as legal fees will be the responsibility of the buyer.
