Our puppies receive an initial vaccination prior to going home. We give shots at 7, 9, 13 and 17 weeks. After a pup is a year old, it will require an annual booster. Our puppies are also wormed prior to going home. We worm all puppies with Nemex II at 5 and 7 weeks. We use Heartguard Plus, a once-a-month pill, to control Heartworm and other internal parasites. Depending on the time of year, we usually start our pups on this medication at 9 weeks of age.
Health Guarantee:We guarantee all puppies to be healthy when they leave the kennel. If you receive a puppy from us and a health problem develops within 72 hours, you must contact us regarding the problem. We cannot be responsible for veterinary costs not approved prior to treatment. Any puppy which dies due to a genetic defect within 36 months after purchase will be replaced free of charge (except shipping, health certificate and handling fee). This will be done if your veterinarian attributes death to a genetic deformity in an autopsy and sends us the findings of the autopsy. The autopsy shall be at the owner's expense.
The parents of our puppies are always in superb health. We OFA certify (see Orthopedic Foundation of America web site) all of our dogs. All of our dogs have their eyes screened annually by a Canine Ophthalmologist (ACVO) and are found to be clear of any defect before being bred. (see CERF (Canine Eye Registry Foundation) web site)
I am posting copies of our sales agreements in the hope that someone thinking of buying a dog from the newspaper ad, without a sales agreement or contract, will think again.
Below you will find links to our pet contracts, show contracts, as well as to our stud dog contract. These contracts are designed to protect you, as the buyer; us as the sellers; and to ensure the welfare of the dogs. If you would like clarification about anything in a contract, or if you wish to know WHY we have a particular requirement in a contract, please email us by using the link at the bottom of the page.
These contracts are not 'written in stone'. They are always evolving based upon our experiences. If you would like to explore other terms in any contract, again - email us. We do not promise that we will change them, but we will always listen to your point of view and will give it careful consideration.
Our contracts for show prospects/adults are individually designed based upon the age and training of the dog, as well as the preferences of us and the Buyer. Should you wish to inquire about a show prospect, please email us. Thanks, and have a wonderful day!
