I will never surrender this pet to rescue, the pound, or any animal shelter.
3- I will feed this pet only a very high quality pet food that is approved by the breeder.
4- I will keep it up to date on vaccinations and wormings, on a schedule approved by the breeder and/or my vet.

BREEDER'S HEALTH GUARANTEE
To my knowledge, this puppy is free of any diseases or genetic defects. This guarantee is valid only if checked by a veterinarian of your choice within 48 hours of receiving the puppy (weekends and holidays excluded) at buyer's expense. For your assurance, I offer a limited FIVE year guarantee against any life threatening genetic defects. This means, if your vet diagnoses your puppy with any genetic defects that would threaten the life of your pup, contact me immediately! I will need you to send your veterinarian's report along with description. I also reserve the right to send your pup to a vet of my choice (near you) for a second opinion. The second opinion will be of no cost to you IF there is a confirmed defect. In the event your puppy dies unexpectedly, and your vet cannot pinpoint cause of death, a necropsy may be needed to determine cause of death (this will be entirely up to you as it will be an incurred cost for you but IS needed for a refund). Please remember that health is my top priority and if there are ANY health problems with one of my puppies I will need to know, to ensure no future breedings with health issues. *Please note: if a condition can be treated, it is not considered life threatening. If an inherited LIFE THREATENING defect is found within FIVE years, I will offer two options:
1. Keep your puppy and I will reimburse the PURCHASE price of the puppy. (I would need you to return the registration papers and vet report before any refund can be given.) This option is not offered by most breeders. I offer this option because I know how strong a bond a person can develop with their pet in only a matter of days. (Please note, I cannot refund shipping charges or veterinarian expenses.)
2. Return your puppy along with registration papers and vet report. I will then replace your puppy with the next available puppy, as soon as it becomes available. (If shipping charges apply to your situation, you are responsible for all related costs due to shipping including crate, health certificate fees, etc.)
*I do not warrant against Parvo or other contagious diseases because I cannot control what the puppy is exposed to once it leaves my care. Your puppy should not leave your house or yard until the full series of puppy shots have been completed, to insure the best possible immunity against communicable diseases. This guarantee is valid only for the buyer signed below. This guarantee covers only inheritable LIFE THREATENING defects for FIVE years. We breed and sell only top quality pups, but once a pup leaves our care we have no control over changes in diet, care, environment, vaccination, medication, or abuse. Therefore, we cannot be responsible if the puppy develops a cold, diarrhea, watery eyes, etc. It is up to the new owner to love and care for this puppy as we have.
I UNDERSTAND THE TERMS OF THIS PET PURCHASE AS OUTLINED ABOVE IN THIS CONTRACT. THE AGREED PLACE OF VENUE FOR THIS CONTRACT IS POLK CO ARKANSAS, AND I AGREE TO THESE TERMS BY SIGNING BELOW.
