An official OFA hip rating will qualify as a second opinion. In the rare case of death, the puppy will be replaced free of charge if under 2 years of age. A necropsy report completed by a qualified vet must show the cause of death was caused by a genetic issue. Shipping fees are at the buyer’s expense.
