Down South Havanese & Bichon Frise


To the best of my knowledge the puppy is healthy at the time of purchase.  I guarantee the health of the puppy for 5 days from time of pick up or delivery. To keep this guarantee in force, a licensed veterinarian must examine the puppy within 48 hours excluding weekends and holidays from day of pick up or delivery. If your vet finds the puppy in bad health, buyer must notify seller that day with statement from the examining vet explaining the puppy’s condition. The condition must be an actual diagnosis determined by lab results and tests.  Not a veterinarian’s guess or prediction.  Note: In the event of a puppy showing signs of illness not eating, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargic behavior, or any behavior out of the ordinary I must be notified immediately.  If I am not  notified at time of diagnosis this guarantee is null and void.  Vet care must be rendered within 24 hours of symptoms onset.  Failure to provide your puppy with immediate vet care is considered medical neglect and will forfeit this guarantee.  The puppy must be returned to me in order to receive a replacement puppy or a refund within 48 hours.  I understand that it may not be in the best interest of the puppy to return him or her, so as long as my vet agrees with the buyer’s veterinarian findings and I have been notified at the time of diagnosis and  I agree that the puppy should not be returned then I will reimburse up to the price of the puppy not including shipping toward the cost of any vet care.  Seller is not responsible for vet charges more than the cost of the puppy.  This reimbursement will be made to the vet clinic only.  In the event of a replacement puppy seller and buyer must agree upon a suitable replacement puppy within one year.  If buyer cannot choose a replacement puppy within one year, then this contract is null and void.   Common canine parasites – fleas, ticks, worms, mites, giardia, or coccidiosis etc. are not covered by this guarantee.  Hypoglycemia is a condition not an illness so will not be considered a reason for a replacement puppy and is not covered by this guarantee. 

 I also guarantee this puppy for five years from date of birth against any hereditary or congenital defect that affects any major organ (Heart, Liver, Kidneys, Pancreas or Lungs) etc. The defect must be life threatening in nature. In the event of such an occurrence, I will replace your pet provided you supply me with a veterinary report dated within 2 days of diagnosis.  Should a genetic or congenital defect that is not life threatening appear prior to the age of 1 year and provided you return the puppy to me at buyer’s expense then I will replace your puppy with one of the same sex, breed and quality.  No cash refunds.  If you choose to keep the puppy this guarantee is null and void and no compensation will be offered.  No guarantee is given on size, quality, color, breeding ability or disposition. In the occurrence of death then said puppy will only be replaced if a necropsy from a state appointed lab has been performed on the puppy explaining the cause of death. Cause of death must be the result of a genetic congenital defect or illness diagnosed within the five day health guarantee period or within the five year genetic guarantee period in order for buyer to receive a replacement puppy.  Should the death be the result of a life threatening genetic disorder than buyer will receive a replacement puppy.  Seller is not responsible for vet bills.   Should the puppy be sold, or given away this guarantee is nontransferable or enforceable.  Shipping charges to return a puppy will be at the buyer’s expense.  Failure to follow this guarantee in its entirety will void the guarantee and will release the seller of any liability.   This guarantee is a legal binding agreement.   All legal disputes will be filed and held in Conway County Arkansas.  By your signature and the purchase of a puppy form me, you are acknowledging, agreeing, and abiding to the terms of this guarantee.
