Puppies are guaranteed to be in good health at the time of sale, to the best of our knowledge. The purchaser has a health guarantee extending to the close of business on the third day the puppy leaves our property and is taken to its new home, in which to have the puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian. If the veterinarian determines that your puppy is clinically ill from an injury sustained or illness, likely to have been contracted on or before the date of purchase, you have the following options: 1. Return the puppy along with a written letter from the examining veterinarian within 48hours of diagnosis and receive a complete refund of the purchase price. 2. Return the puppy for a replacement puppy of equal value when available.
This puppy is guaranteed up to its second birthday against any congenital or hereditary defect, which develops to the extent that it adversely affects the animal's health or will lead to death. If a licensed veterinarian determines your puppy has a congenital or hereditary defect, you will be required to provide us with the licensed veterinarian's certificate stating the defect. In some cases, a second opinion may be required before reimbursement will be given. In no case shall the reimbursement exceed the original purchase price of the dog.
Your puppy has been bred from parents and in most cases, many generations of ancestors most of whom, if not all, have clearances for normal hips. These clearances do not guarantee that your puppy will not develop hip dysplasia at some point in their life. The development of canine hip dysplasia is not solely dependent upon genetics, but environment (exercise and feeding) as well. Inappropriate exercise can harm immature, developing joints and may affect their ultimate development. As we cannot control how you feed, exercise and care for your puppy, a written documentation from a licensed veterinarian that the hip dysplasia is due to genetics, sufficient proof of proper exercise and feeding, and an official OFA evaluation is required for reimbursement or replacement of your puppy if hip dysplasia is detected. OFA hip rating must be severe for a reimbursement or replacement. At that time, we will replace your puppy with one of equal value on the next available litter, usually within a year; or we can come to a reasonable monetary settlement. In some cases, a second opinion may be required before reimbursement will be given. In no case shall the reimbursement exceed the purchase price of the dog. The hip dysplasia guarantee is good up until the puppy's second birthday.
We do not guarantee against communicable diseases such as Parvo, Coccidia, Giardia, Distemper, Rabies, etc. We take every precaution to prevent these illnesses, but a puppy's immune system is immature at the time of transferring to their new home. Stress can contribute to a Coccidia or Giardia outbreak. Be very careful where you take your puppy until all rounds of vaccinations are completed and the puppy is fully immunized from these diseases. Do not expose your puppy to other canines who have not been vaccinated and fully immunized. Be especially weary of dog parks daycare and grooming centers until the puppy is full immunized.
If at any time the buyer wishes to re-home the puppy, the buyer agrees to contact Hill Country Goldendoodles and offer first right of refusal to re-home.
