Health Guarantee

 
This puppy is being placed with a 2 (two) Year Genetic Health Guarantee.
This puppy has temporary vaccinations against parvovirus, parainfluenza, adenovirus and distemper. Pauden Kennels (hereafter known as the seller) is giving a guarantee for 5 working days. In that time, a licensed veterinarian must examine the puppy. If he or she finds any life-threatening genetic defect or life threatening illness, the purchaser may exchange the puppy for one of equal value. If this happens, a veterinarian certificate and any other documentation and or tests the seller feels necessary must be presented attesting to any and all problems. The seller is not responsible for any bills incurred by the purchaser’s veterinarian(s).
If after the initial 5 working days, and within two(2) years of the date of this contract, if a life threatening or severe and negatively altering genetic defect arises in the puppy  the seller will provide another puppy or equal value as a replacement for the unfit dog, but a refund will not be an option. Shipping costs for the replacement puppy are the responsibility of the purchaser. In this case the seller will also require a veterinarian certificate and any other documentation and/or tests that the seller feels necessary to be presented attesting to any and all problems of the unfit dog. The seller is not responsible for any medical bills incurred by the purchaser’s veterinarian. If the genetic problem is medically repairable the purchaser has the option of retaining ownership of the original dog and treating the disorder, as well as having the replacement puppy.

ABSOLUTELY NO MONEY WILL BE REFUNDED

The puppy is not to be euthanized without consulting with the seller prior. If the puppy is euthanized without consulting the seller a refund or replacement may or may not be given at the seller’s discretion.
The seller reserves the right to have the puppy examined by their own veterinarian in either case. If this is deemed necessary the seller will be responsible for incurred costs. If for some reason in the future purchaser is no longer able to keep the animal, it is to be returned to the seller at the purchaser’s expense, unless the buyer has an alternate home available for the puppy that the seller deems suitable. The seller also reserves the right to repossess a puppy if they feel that it is living in a physically or mentally unfit or unhealthy environment, without compensation to the buyer.
This puppy to the best of the seller’s knowledge is in excellent health at the time of the sale. Please have your veterinarian do a fecal to check for internal parasites that are common in kennels such as, Worms, Coccidia and Giardia.
Registration papers are not presented to the buyer at the same time as the puppy. Not all litters will be registered; it is up to the discretion of the seller to register the litter based on if there are any in the litter show quality.  Should you request papers, after the required spay or neuter, an additional charge will apply.
The puppy is sold under a spay/neuter agreement the seller will hold the pedigree papers until verification of the surgery is presented.
