What this guarantee covers:
This guarantee covers problems that your vet discovers at your initial visit which affect the dog’s health and are

that are life-threatening or seriously impair a dog’s ability to live and enjoy a normal life.

(with the 3rd occurring at 12 weeks of age). Our guarantee does not cover a puppy illness or death due to disease
after the sale.
We do not guarantee color, size, conformation, temperament or personality, breeding or showing capability or

size, etc., but make no guarantees as such.

you buy the puppy on Sunday, you must take him to the vet by Wednesday. Health problems that are not detected
at this initial vet visit will not be covered by this guarantee.
