Pet guarantee: Dogs purchased with limited AKC, CKC, CPR registration, or no registration are guaranteed for 5 years of life for any genetic defect that would cause the dog to die or live such a poor quality of life a licensed veterinarian would place in writing that the dog needs to be euthanized . This includes heart defects, complete blindness, inability to walk from hip dysplasia or patella luxation, cancer that kills the dog. A licensed veterinarian and a specialist must make all claims. A minimum of two separate evaluations must be submitted to me in writing for a replacement (IF YOU CHOOSE TO KEEP THE PUPPY/DOG YOU ARE NEVER ENTITLED TO ANY FINANCIAL COMPENSATION) and an autopsy must be performed in the case of death.
Things not included are allergies of any kind, infectious diseases including kennel cough, cherry eye or third eyelids, pinched nostrils also known as Stenotic nares, freak accidents, suspected mistreatment, hernias of any kind, parasites of any kind, giardia, or coccidia, mange mites of any kind because Revolution and ProMeris prevent these from ever occurring, mild thyroid conditions, mild heart murmurs or irregularities, or other things not in control of Virginia Poodles and Doodles which includes heat exhaustion.
We offer one replacement puppy per person per lifetime.
Dogs purchased as breeding stock.
I offer a 2 year guarantee against hip dysplasia CAUSED BY GENETICS NOT INJURY, patella luxation of a grade 3 or higher only, heart murmurs, thyroid conditions, I make NO claims about the following: size, color, bite, height, weight, placement of the animal in the show ring or capabilities of the animal to reproduce as an adult. Guarantee is for sold animals only—potential issues with the sold animal’s offspring are NOT covered. Animals sold with full registration means at time of sale there are no known defects that would prevent an animal from being shown or bred, but no one can guarantee the future. Guarantee is null and void if the dog is bred prior to 12 months of age.
Guarantee is for person purchasing the dog only; any transfers of ownership makes the entire health guarantee null and void
Please note NO money will be refunded. This includes medical expenses– any treatments and expenses you incur from the puppy are completely the buyer’s responsibility. The buyer will be given a replacement animal of the same quality with a different genetic make-up within one year’s time. If no replacement is born in a one year span a financial refund will be issued to the buyer. Or if Shannon feels that you can not be happy with a replacement she may choose to offer a refund at her digression but that is her choice not the buyers. In no way will Virginia Poodles and Doodles ever be liable for more than the purchase price of the puppy. Buyer is responsible for all transportation costs and or pickup of acquiring this replacement puppy.
OWNER SURRENDER: If at any time you are unable to keep the dog/puppy Shannon Carner and Virginia Poodles and Doodles must be notified. We will take the puppy/dog back at any time no questions asked. If you are surrendering the puppy/dog, no refund or replacement will be given. At no point will you surrender the dog/puppy to an animal shelter.
VET VISITS: Although your puppy has already visited the vet at 6 weeks old, you should take your puppy to your family vet within 48 hours (unless it's Friday, then 72 hours) to have your puppy examined. Should your vet find the puppy unhealthy you may return the pup within 3 days for a full refund- you must provide a letter from the vet on office letterhead stating the puppy is unfit. Refund is purchase price only, no transportation or boarding costs included.
Despite our OCD cleaning efforts, ALL puppies are born with parasites and worms, and stress can also bring them out again. Even though our puppies receive Pyrantal worming medicine at 2, 4, 6 weeks of age, Tolturizuril for 2 days to prevent coccidiosis (at age 5 weeks), and then 5 days of Panacur at age 8 weeks of age, they may still have a few parasites that resisted treatment. Your vet should provide a routine worming or fecal test. We do NOT make any real or implied guarantee against normal puppy parasites,such as coccidiosis, giardia, viral or any bacterial infections that puppies can contract.
By 8 weeks of age, your puppy has only had ONE set of shots from our vet : DA2PP- distemper, adenovirus type 2 (hepatitis), parvovirus, parainfluenza- you will need a total of 2 more shots given at 3 week intervals. Your puppy is NOT immune to these diseases until he or she has received the whole series. Treat your puppy like the baby they are DO NOT place the puppy on the ground in public areas such as rest stops, dog parks, pet stores or other areas where unknown dogs have been- until they have their third and final shot.
