Said puppy will be given it's first combo vaccine and will be dewormed for common parasites several times before leaving the Seller's home. It is important to follow up with further booster shots and parasite treatments according to veterinarian recommendations. Starting a monthly flea/heartworm treatment at your first appointment is wise as 8 weeks of age is the soonest those treatments become a viable option. The Buyer has 48 hours from the date of sale to have the puppy examined by a veterinarian of their own choice, at their own expense. If the vet exam reveals that the puppy has a life threatening genetic defect, the Buyer must contact the Seller on the day of the office visit. Buyer will then have the option of returning said puppy within 5 days along with a written diagnosis from the attending vet, for a replacement puppy of equal value when one becomes available. Returning the puppy will be at the Buyer's expense and must be conducted within 5 days for the Buyer to be entitled to a replacement puppy. Replacement is the only option. No refunds will be made. No veterinary bills will be paid by the Seller. Genetic defects that are NOT life threatening (such as a kinked tail) are NOT covered by this warranty
Typical Adjustment Period:
For puppies going to a new home, meeting new people and pets can be a scary experience.
Mild distress including crying and barking, mostly at bedtime, is to be expected during the first few nights away from their mother and littermates. Slight tummy upset can occur during these times of stress. Shivering can also be a common sign of stress. Every puppy will react differently.
All of these behaviors and symptoms are temporary and resolve themselves typically within just a few days to a week with proper consistent training and care during the adjustment period.
Please do not adopt a puppy if you cannot cope with some night time crying, or if you living arrangements (ex: apartments) will not tolerate such behaviors.
