The SDP Puppy Health Guarantee

Usually at the age of 8 weeks, depending on the weight of the puppy and how easily it is weaned from its mother, your puppy will be ready to go to its new home. We can not guarantee a delivery date as we will not let the puppy leave before it is ready.

The puppy is guaranteed to be in good health and is up to date on vaccinations and de-worming at the time of sale. It is very important that you continue the puppy’s vaccinations and de-worming. Please do not expose your puppy to other dogs that are not vaccinated until he/she has completed the entire vaccination schedule – around age 16-20 weeks.

The buyer, at their own expense, should have the puppy examined by a licensed veterinarian within a week or 2 of receiving the puppy. If your vet finds the puppy to be unhealthy or unfit for sale, the puppy may be returned for a full refund provided the puppy has not been injured or neglected. The veterinarian must provide a written statement deeming the puppy “unhealthy for purchase” along with the health issues.

Your puppy is Guaranteed for 1 (one) year from the date of whelp
against hereditary and congenital defects that are life threatening. This guarantee does not include any health issues caused by neglect or injury. It also does not include minor illnesses such as colds, allergies, internal or external parasites or umbilical hernias. We will however, disclose any known issues prior to purchase. Should your puppy have a hernia we will deduct $50.00 from the purchase price. this amount should cover the cost of having the hernia repaired once the puppy is old enough. Should your veterinarian find your puppy has a life threatening problem, the buyer must provide the seller with a written verification of such. The seller reserves the right to have any diagnoses verified by a veterinarian of seller’s/breeders choice.


If the puppy is to be returned, the seller may agree to replace the puppy with a puppy of the same sex and breed as soon as one is available. The puppy must be returned to the seller within 7 days of the confirmed diagnoses, at the buyers expense, and the puppy must be received in the same physical condition as when it left the seller, or this contract will become null and void.

With the exception of hereditary and congenital defects the breeder can not assume responsibility for this puppy after 3 days of the sale. It is the responsibility of the buyer to care for the puppy properly and keep it free from harm. Please remember that your puppy must be treated with great care and protected from danger. I require that you read my note on Toxic Dog Treats.

The breeder assumes no responsibility for any medical expenses incurred after the sale. The breeder assumes no responsibility for training difficulties or behavior problems. The breeder does not guarantee size. We will give the buyer the weight of the puppy’s parents and the weight of other puppies out of that mating. We can give the buyer an educated guess as to full grown weight, but there are too many variables besides genetics. The breeder does not guarantee fertility or ability to place in shows. The puppy is strictly being sold as a quality pet.

***This Guarantee applies to the original purchaser ONLY, and is not transferable***

Keep in mind that folks that have bought my puppies in the past are actually my BEST advertisement. When they are out there showing off & bragging on their little dogs, their friends may just be coming on down here to get one of their very own. Therefore, I want you to be very happy with your new little one! If you ever have any questions, please, always feel free to contact me anytime for the whole life of your puppy. If you ever find yourself unable to care for your puppy/dog, he/she is always welcome to come back to me here!

A little piece of my heart leaves with each of my puppies, so please, when you get a chance, email me some news & photos of them on occasion? I LOVE hearing about them!!
