b.       State of Health.  The puppy/dog (i) was previously examined by a licensed veterinarian and was found to be in good health at that and (ii) has had the immunizations enumerated in the health records provided to the Buyer.  Buyer at its own expense must that the puppy/dog examined by a licensed veterinarian with 72 hours of receiving puppy (the “Examination Period”) for the guarantee in this section to be valid.  If, within the Examination Period, a licensed veterinarian finds the puppy/dog to be unhealthy of unfit for sale, the puppy/dog may be returned to the Breeder for a full refund of the Purchase Price.  The veterinarian MUST provide a written statement deeming the puppy/dog “unfit for purchase”, which must be sent to Breeder within 48 hours of veterinary examination.  The foregoing guarantee expressly excludes (x)any health issues caused by Buyer’s ill-treatment, abuse or neglect, (y) any health issues that result from transportation from Breeder to Buyer and (z)all minor health issues, including, upper respiratory infections, allergic reactions, stress colitis/diarrhea, internal or external parasites or contagious viruses (including canine parvovirus), giardia, UTIs, vaginitis, umbilical hernias, hypoglycemia.

c.      Long Term Health Warranty.  Limited one year of age warranty for genetic defect. Should the puppy be diagnosed within the first twelve months of life with a proven Congenital disorder, which is considered by two unassociated veterinarians, to seriously impact the quality of life, or require continuous medical treatment throughout the course of the life, we will provide the buyer with these remedies:

(i)the Buyer chooses to give up the puppy to us, then the cost of the puppy will be given as a credit toward a replacement puppy. Shipping is at owner's expense. (ii) Should the Buyer choose to retain the life threatened genetically defected dog, to provide non elective medical care, and seeks a resolution, our remedy consists of limited credit(up to the cost of the dog) , based on the amount of non-elective medical bills incurred in the first year. The credit goes toward another puppy purchase. (iii)We do not offer cash refunds nor pay medical bills, but rather credits are given toward another puppy from us. If a credit toward a future puppy is not an option for you, then do not purchase from us. I am a widow, and do not have income from a husband or mate, so cash refunds are not an option offered. In the unlikely event of this puppy’s death in the one-year warranty, a necropsy from a state veterinary lab must confirm a GENETIC cause before the Breeder will take any action.  Necropsy is performed at buyer’s expense.  In addition, a photo of the deceased puppy must be sent with the necropsy report for I.D. verification.
