If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Service ("Purchase”), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your purchase including, without limitation your name, email, address, credit card, and other general order information.


Deposits are non-refundable and puppies are not returnable except as specified by our Health and Genetic Warranty (see below). 

Health And Genetic Warranty

The Sellers certify that the puppy you purchase is in sound health at the time of sale to the best of our knowledge and has been given all vaccinations and wormings stated on the vaccination record provided to the buyer(s). We do our best to provide the new owner with a healthy puppy. The buyer will be responsible for further vaccinations and boosters.

The following stipulations must be adhered to in order for a replacement to be made. Official reports from 2 unaffiliated veterinarians stating that, without a doubt, the puppy has a genetic defect that will cause a shortened life to the puppy, must be sent to me along with phone numbers of each vet's If the puppy should die, an autopsy MUST BE DONE by a licensed veterinarian stating the cause of death. The documentation must be forwarded to us before a determination will be made.

The Sellers reserve the right to confirm the diagnosis with a veterinarian of their choice. The Seller will not be responsible for any expenses you may incur, including shipping and vet expenses. This warranty applies only to the original buyer. Puppy replacement or credit for future puppy only.

We cannot control the exposure your puppy encounters after leaving here. Puppies sometimes stress when adopted and moved to their new home. This stress can be brought on due to the move, change of diet, too much handling, not enough quiet time, or not eating properly. This stress can also bring on things that are dormant such as but not limited to worms, ear mites, colds, hypoglycemia and/or coccidiosis, and/or giardiasis. These conditions are all treatable and do not warrant a replacement. There is no guarantee on the color or size of puppy now or as an adult.

The following are NOT covered by this guarantee:
-Reimbursement for veterinary expenses
-Reimbursement for air transport or return
-External parasites, such as ticks, fleas, lice, or ear mites
-Internal parasites, such as intestinal worms, or their effects (almost every a puppy has some sort of intestinal worms; although we have wormed your puppy regularly, it only takes a few days for him / her to pick up another "batch". That's just a part of puppy-hood, which is why a regular worming schedule is recommended.)

We strongly recommend but do not require that your puppy be spayed or neutered.
It is your ultimate responsibility to take good care of your puppy and provide adequate food, water, shelter and veterinarian care. Please be aware that as a new puppy owner you share in the responsibility to help prevent hip dysplasia, as is has been proven to be part heredity and increasingly environmental. We have bred this puppy based on sound stock Through proper diet, proper exercise, and quality living conditions, you can play an important role in helping your puppy grow into a healthy adult.
