Raising Pet Quality AKC Miniature Schnauzers

 

Health Guarantee:

 

To the best of our knowledge and belief, the puppy you have just purchased is in good health. Our dogs and puppies have not been exposed to infectious disease here.  If your puppy is exposed to an infectious disease after it leaves here, this is not covered in our health guarantee, as we have no control over what the puppy is exposed to after it leaves our home. We guarantee your puppy for three days (72 hours).  To qualify for this guarantee, you must have your puppy examined by a licensed veterinarian of your choice within the 3-day period. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

 

Congenital Defects

If your vet believes your puppy has a major physical problem, which makes it a poor health risk, we will provide you with a healthy one, when one is available. This guarantee covers life threatening congenital defects for the first 24 months. You must have a written statement from your vet on office stationary, signed by him/her for our records, stating health problem, including a description of the symptoms supporting his/ her diagnosis .

You must notify us the day of initial examination to make claim for a replacement puppy. The original puppy must be returned (alive) within 24 hours along with all paperwork. If you choose Euthanasia without our prior consent you will forfeit any guarantees within this contract. You agree to fill out all necessary forms to return ownership of puppy to breeder.

If you qualify for a replacement puppy, we will provide a new puppy of equal value, if one is available, or from next available litter ( WITHIN 1 YEAR OF ORIGINAL DATE OF PURCHASE). If you choose a puppy of greater value you are responsible to pay the difference.  You will also need to return and sign all papers that were given to you at the time of the original sale.

 

All items covered under this guarantee are by replacement only.

 

Seller will not be responsible for any medical expenses incurred.

 

As of the date of delivery, the puppy has received proper vaccinations and

wormings. The buyer has been informed of these and of future vaccinations

and wormings due.

 

This guarantee does not include Coccidia and Kennel Cough, which is common

in puppies that are shipped and usually caused by bacteria. Kennel Cough is

self limiting and like the common cold, it must run its course. Full

recovery is expected and Kennel Cough on its own is not life threatening.

 

Buyer is responsible for transportation costs to and from the seller on a

replacement puppy.

 

 

We will not be responsible for any illness or injury that may be caused by

improper care or treatment of the buyer once the puppy leaves our

care (including but not limited to hypoglycemia). 


Please read this Parvo Notice:

A puppy is not fully vaccinated against parvo until up to 10 days after it has received its final booster. NEVER TAKE A SICK PUPPY BACK TO THE BREEDER?S KENNEL. If it does have parvo, this will put any present puppies and future litters at risk. Call the breeder and discuss the situation with her by phone. THIS WARRANTY IS NULL AND VOID IF THE PUPPY IS PLACED IN AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE PARVO PREVIOUSLY OR PRESENTLY EXISTS. (*) Please note that just one puppy from a litter cannot develop parvo and not the whole litter. Therefore, if your puppy develops parvo after leaving the kennel and none of the other puppies develop it, it is impossible for the puppy to have contracted it at the breeder?s kennel.  You will also need to return and sign all papers that were given to you at the time of the original sale.

 

To make a claim for a replacement puppy, send your puppy back the same day

of examination. You must bring this contract along with a signed statement

from your vet showing the date on which your puppy was examined and why the

puppy is a poor health risk. This statement must include a description of

the symptoms and a diagnosis supporting their opinion.


After reading the above, I am fully committed to providing the financial and personal support for the well-being and health of the puppy which I am purchasing. We do not guarantee or warranty the size of any puppy, or that the Buyer

will be able to show or breed the puppy regardless of show or breeding potentials.
