TERMS

This puppy is sold on a non-breeding contract and as such cannot be bred while this contract is in effect. If a purchaser ignores the non-breeding agreement and permits this pup to reproduce without the sellers permission the purchaser will be deemed in violation of this agreement

Buyer has three days (excluding weekends and holidays) from the receipt of the puppy to have it examined by a veterinarian and provide Seller with the results. If the puppy is found to be unhealthy, the Buyer may return the puppy for a full refund. A signed diagnosis from the veterinarian stating that the puppy is unhealthy must be provided. No cash refunds will be given after three days.
