72 hour Well Puppy Warranty: All puppies are examined by a licensed Veterinarian and given a clean bill of health before they leave our care. To the best of the Breeder and Veterinarian’s knowledge, this puppy has no known diseases or illnesses and is guaranteed to be free of untreatable health conditions. Within 72 hours of possession the buyer has the option of having the puppy examined by their own Veterinarian and to personally inspect the dog. If, as a result of the examination, the veterinarian determines that the dog is not in good health or requires any treatment that the buyer does not want to provide, they may return the dog to the seller within 48 hours of the exam for a full refund of the purchase price. This well puppy warranty is void after the puppy is in his/her new home over 72 hours. If the buyer forgoes this 3 day well puppy warranty, they are then acknowledging that the
puppy was received in good health at the time of pickup.
