Strongheart German Shepherd's Health Guarantee
I, Philip Reed (seller), guarantee that each puppy is in excellent health at the time of sale. I guarantee that the puppy is free from life threatening congenital or hereditary defects for 2 years from the date of birth. Our puppies’ elbows and hips are warrantied to pass OFA at 2 years of age with a rating of fair or better. *Buyer agrees to spay/neuter this puppy no sooner than one year of age (18 months preferable), or the 2-year hip & elbow guarantee is null and VOID. This is to avoid orthopedic ramifications of early spay/neuter. Studies have shown the reproductive hormones are necessary for correct growth.* If the puppy has a hereditary defect that seriously impacts the quality of life, warrants euthanasia, or requires continuous medical treatment throughout the course of life, the buyer is entitled to a full refund of the total puppy price. Buyer must have a licensed veterinarian provide proof, and I reserve the right to a 2nd opinion by a veterinarian of my choosing. This agreement is void if the puppy shows any evidence of neglect, abuse, disease, injury, improper nutrition, or viral and bacterial infections. The puppy must be maintained at an appropriate body weight and condition. If the puppy is female she must not have been bred during the first 18 months of her life. Buyer’s veterinarian must show proof of basic veterinary care such as vaccinations and parasite control. This guarantee doesn’t cover the dog’s appearance, such as non-erect ears. Seller is not responsible for miscellaneous problems that are preventable such as hypoglycemia, coccidiosis, Guardia, parasites, bacterial infections, and disorders caused by environmental factors. Physical problems which result from injury are not covered under this guarantee. Whether the buyer is entitled to a refund or not all expenses and vet charges incurred by the purchaser after the puppy leaves my home are their sole responsibility. This guarantee applies to the original purchaser only and is not transferable to a second party. Buyer has purchased AKC Breeding Rights and has received their AKC application for registration. I offer no guarantee of the puppy’s breeding abilities, show quality, size, or temperament.
