SELLER’S REPRESENTATIONS: The following conditions apply to the sale of the aforementioned dog: The Buyer has FIVE days from the time of purchase to have the dog examined by a veterinarian and to personally inspect the dog. Any request to return the dog to the Seller must be made within this time period and must be accompanied by a written statement from a veterinarian describing any problems found. Failure to have the puppy examined within 5 days voids the health warranty. Your dog is guaranteed against Genetic Defects until 2 years of age. Due to the varying kinds of food and environmental conditions and the fact that puppies have immune systems that take time to mature, we highly recommend NuVet Plus Wafers immune system builder to help them maintain optimal health. Based on the benefits from NuVet Plus Wafers we will extend this guarantee another 2 years. To qualify for this guarantee extension, you must give your new puppy NuVet Plus; which is tracked through Hilltop Pups’ tracking number located Resource Page of www.hilltoppups.com or www.nuvet.com/91606. Failure to do this makes the guarantee extension null and void.
Related reimbursement is limited to purchase price. Qualifying genetic defects for reimbursement are those related to hip, heart, elbow, eye, PRA, and vWD. Reimbursement for genetic defects will be made only when a second opinion from a qualified veterinarian and proof of surgery expenses are provided where quality of life is severely impacted. 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; 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. Seller agrees to re-home the dog should the original purchaser so request. Warranties shall apply only to original purchaser. Transfer of dog ownership shall void this agreement. Seller makes no guarantee this dog will not shed or cause an allergic reaction. Buyer understands that Seller's prediction of coat type, height, or weight at adulthood are estimates only and are based on Seller's goal to match puppies with families appropriately. This dog must be spayed or neutered by 9 months of age; failure to do so will void the health warranty. Proof of spaying/neutering by 9 months of age must accompany any request for warranty reimbursement. This puppy is being sold as a family pet and does not convey with breeding rights. If this puppy is bred, the purchaser agrees to pay the seller ten times the purchase price of this puppy for every litter produced. Under no circumstances shall the Seller be liable to the Buyer or to any third party for a dog that has been subjected to abuse, accident, negligence, or any damages resulting from or in any manner related to the dog. This warranty does not include viral illnesses, infections, improper bites, or hernias. The Seller guarantees the puppy against fatal viruses for 72 hours. This includes Distemper, Parvo, and Corona.
The guarantee does not include coverage for common parasites as they can be easily contracted in their new home and environment. Puppies and Dogs sniff everything, plus lick their paws clean; ingesting parasites daily. This should be considered a reasonable expectation and the Buyer’s financial responsibility. Stress of a new home and the thrill of new surroundings can cause enough stress for a stress-related outbreak; allow puppy several naps each day. Those common parasites include all worms, coccidia, and giardia. While in our care, we have wormed your puppy at least 4 times and we have taken all preventative measures to reduce the risk of these common parasites. The risk for contracting these parasites continues until the puppy is on a monthly heartworm preventative. Plus, at 4 months old the puppy’s immune system has matured to the point where the puppy can fight off most parasites with its own immunity. This agreement does not include any illness due to the ingestion of foreign objects, food, chemicals, physical injury, or issues whose cause is unknown or may have an environmental link. Upon execution of this contract all veterinary care and its associated costs are the sole and exclusive responsibility of the Buyer.
