Your puppy has received his/her first set of shots and has been dewormed on a regular schedule, however, it takes a series of shots to provide full immunity and as such, seller strongly recommends that you keep your puppy at home and away from other dogs (especially unvaccinated ones) until 10 days after the full series of vaccinations are complete. When taking your puppy to the vet for his/her initial exam and subsequent shots, seller also strongly stresses that it is important to not let your puppy’s feet touch any surface that has not been cleaned with bleach or a strong parvicide. A good suggestion is to take a couple of towels with you from home and place them on the exam table before setting your puppy down, then washing the towels with hot water and bleach once you get home. There is also a risk of your puppy contracting an illness if he/she is let out in your yard before vaccinations are complete. Seller has already started training your puppy to use potty pads and that is a good way to continue at least until vaccinations are complete. Not following these guidelines can expose your puppy to serious illnesses. Common puppy problems that occur that are either non-life threatening or curable is not warranted by seller. Seller recommends that you take a stool sample for your puppy’s initial exam to be tested for worms & parasites, which are common in puppies and can be treated by your vet.
Your puppy has been examined by a licensed veterinarian and pronounced healthy. Please take your puppy to your personal vet for an initial exam within 48 hours (business) of receipt of puppy. Seller guarantees against any life-threatening, incurable congenital defects only. Seller is not responsible for any veterinarian fees associated with that exam and buyer will be responsible for return shipping. If you don’t have the puppy examined within 48 business hours, the warranty will be considered null and void and no refund will be given, even if the puppy is returned. If problems are found and you don’t notify seller within that initial 48 business hours, the warranty will be considered null and void and no refund will be given. A report from your vet, signed and dated by him, on his business letterhead, detailing his findings, must be obtained and provided to me, and a second vet of my choice must be allowed (at my expense) to examine the puppy again, and if both veterinarians agree that there is an incurable, life-threatening genetic defect which existed at the time of receipt of the puppy, and providing that the puppy has been properly cared for in the purchaser’s possession, seller then guarantees to refund the purchase price of the puppy only, minus any shipping charges and any non-refundable deposit. Buyer will be responsible for all vet fees and return shipping expenses. A copy of this contract must be presented upon return of a puppy. All registration papers, immunization and health records, must accompany the return of the puppy. Should death occur within this initial 48 hour period, seller must be notified immediately and an autopsy must be performed at a Diagnostic Laboratory Clinic, at the purchaser’s expense, to determine the cause of death, and a written report of the findings must be provided to me. If the death was caused by a congenital genetic defect only, a refund will be provided, minus any deposit, shipping or veterinary expenses.
Following the initial 48 hour period, if within the first 24 months of the puppy’s life it is found to have an incurable, life-threatening genetic illness, the buyer has the option of returning the dog to me in exchange for a replacement puppy of the same monetary value. All conditions from above must be met and buyer is responsible for all veterinary and shipping costs, both of the return and the replacement puppy. Seller will have 12 months to replace the puppy if a suitable one is not available at that time. No refund will be given if a female has been bred.
Puppies need all of their hormones to achieve full growth and bone development. Spaying or neutering prior to 12 months of age, will render this health guarantee void.
Other than the above guarantee, BloomingDoodles assumes no monetary responsibility for puppies once they leave my premises. Any illness, trauma, stress or stress-related consequences incurred due to mishandling during delivery or transportation, or in the process of the puppy adjusting to a new home, new routine and new food are not warranted by me.
Common puppy problems that may occur due to the stress of adjusting to a new environment or mishandling by the new owner are not warranted under this limited health guarantee, including, but not limited to, coccidia, giardia, internal parasites, parvo, distemper, hypoglycemia.
Adult color, size, temperament, reproductive health or breeding potential of the puppy are impossible to guarantee and as such, are not included in my health guarantee.
*It is my goal as a breeder, that each puppy is placed in a permanent, loving home and to avoid the situation where the puppy is sent from home to home, abused, neglected or ends up in a shelter. I am committed for the lifetime of the dog to making sure that it is well cared for and REQUIRE that if, for any reason, you find that you cannot keep the dog, that it is returned to me. Under NO circumstances may this dog be resold, given away or placed with a rescue agency or a shelter! Ownership will be legally turned back over to me along with all registration papers, microchip, vaccination and health information. Once seller has found an appropriate home for the dog, half of what it is sold for will be returned to you, minus half of what it cost to ship the pup back to me.
Your puppy will have already received one or two sets of vaccines prior to transfer. If buyer allows a vet to re-do those vaccines then the health guarantee will be considered null and void. You will receive information concerning vaccinations and what is due for your puppy. To re-do any vaccinations is putting a great deal of stress on the puppy’s whole system and can cause many serious if not deadly consequences.
This guarantee is nontransferable and applies only to the original buyer.

***Should buyer change their mind about adopting the puppy, the Deposit is non-refundable. This fee may be transferred to a different puppy if one is available.
