I Misty Means(Breeder) guarantees that the puppy sold is in good physical health on this day of
purchase. All necessary shots and dewormings have been done. The purchaser agrees to take
this puppy to a licensed veterinarian of there choice within 48 hours for a health check. Breeder
must be informed immediately of this examination. Should the puppy be determined to be unfit
for purchase due to illness, disease or congenital disorder, the cause of which is clearly
attributable to the seller, the puppy may upon presentation of a written diagnosis from said
veterinarian be returned for another puppy of equal value by the seller. If no puppies are
available for replacement at that time, a puppy from the next available litter will be offered. We
do not refund money or pay for any veterinary bills incurred by the buyer. Puppies that are
shipped are at risk for Coccidia and Kennel Cough which is common in puppies that are shipped
and usually caused by bacteria. Kennel Cough is self limiting and like the common cold, it must
run it course. Full recovery is expected and kennel cough on its own is not life threatening. So if
you plan to have you puppy shipped instead of picking it up you need to be aware of this.
WE DO NOT GIVE REFUNDS OR PAY VET BILLS FOR ANY REASON!!!
If I am holding an older puppy for personal pick up , you will have 2 weeks from the date of deposit to have
the puppy picked up or you will forfeit the deposit and it will be relisted.

age. If the puppy develops congenital or hereditary life threating disorder, we will replace the

of death. Buyer pays all shipping costs involved in obtaining a replacement puppy.
3. Buyer agrees to provide routine veterinary care of this puppy. Including proper
vaccinations,routine worm checks, heart worm treatments,and records of such care should
buyer have to return puppy for replacement.
4. Buyer understands contract will be void if buyer fails to provide routine veterinary care, if
