SAMPLE BULLDOG HEALTH
CONTRACT/GUARANTEE
THIS IS A SAMPLE BULLDOG HEALTH GUARANTEE FOR A BULLDOG PUPPY IT
WILL BE CHANGED ACCORDING TO THE STUD CUSTOMER'S REVISIONS:

All Bulldogs bred and sold by J BAR T RANCH are accompanied by an accurate, up-
to-date medical history.  Dogs are checked by a licensed veterinarian prior to
delivery/shipping or pick up and are guaranteed to be sound and in good health at
this time.  However, on puppies whose age at date of sale precludes the series of
vaccinations it is necessary for the purchaser to complete the scheduled series of
vaccinations ON TIME, in order to protect the puppy and for the health guarantee to
remain valid.  A timetable for the series of vaccinations will be provided on the
medical history of the puppy.  In addition, the puppy should not be exposed to
premises known to be suspected of being contaminated, or by unhealthy animals.  
Here at J BAR T RANCH we take our puppies health very serious and their
vaccinations and worming and overall health are of the utmost importance.  We are
very diligent in the routine care for our puppies.

J BAR T RANCH certifies that at the time of sale and to best of our knowledge, the
said puppy will be free of any congenital birth defects.  Our puppies are guaranteed
against parvovirus, distemper, and hepatitis, at the time of sale.  This guarantee
does not include kennel cough which is like the common cold.  Kennel cough must
run its course, full recovery is expected and on its own is not life threatening.  
Buyer is aware that English Bulldogs are prone to heat stroke and will be
responsible to provide an environment that is healthy for their new puppy.  Buyer
has also researched, is knowledgeable and aware of the common conditions that
can be common and typical of developing with a Bulldog along with the veterinary
treatments and expenses involved in owning a Bulldog.  See our Bulldog care &
information pages and/or go to
www.bulldogworld.com a very informative website
for Bulldog owners.  The following conditions are not covered in the congenital and
hereditary health guarantee :  demodectic mange, cherry eye, entropion, loose hips,
skin allergies, coccidian, giardia, internal parasites, bacterial or viral infections
(other than what puppy has been vaccinated for), elongated soft palate, and nasal
snares.  

The buyer is advised to have this puppy examined by a competent and licensed
veterinarian of the buyers’ choice within 3 working days to assure them that they
have purchased a healthy puppy.  This will be done at the buyers’ expense.  Under
no circumstances will J BAR T RANCH be responsible for any veterinarian bills
acquired by the buyer for this puppy.  Minor, breed related, treatable or correctable
conditions, or any condition that may go away or is a condition that the puppy will
outgrow and is not life threatening, are not covered.

J BAR T RANCH DOES NOT GIVE REFUNDS (except for life threatening genetic
diseases or illnesses that were present at time of sale and are found within 3
working days).  We will give a replacement puppy only if any congenital defect or
genetic disease is found in the 6 month guarantee period after that as long as all the
other health care stipulations are followed in this contract and there are no signs of
neglect or abuse of the puppy.  The following is required in either of these cases:
1.  A written explanation from a licensed veterinarian and backed up with lab work or
x-rays to the nature and extent of the problem.
2.  A second and confirmed opinion from a vet whom J BAR T RANCH has approved
to examine the puppy for life threatening congenital defects and/or neglect or abuse
by the buyer.
3.  Return the puppy and AKC papers to us at buyer’s expense.  If you are unwilling
to give the puppy and AKC papers into J BAR T Ranch’s possession, we will not be
responsible for any medical expenses incurred nor will we be part of the recovery
process.
4.  Proof that the puppy was examined by a certified veterinarian no later than three
(3) business days after receiving the puppy.  If the vet’s diagnosis is that the puppy
has a life threatening genetic disease within the (3) business days and all of the
above criteria is met we will refund your money.  If a life threatening genetic
disease is found in the six month of age guarantee period and all the above criteria
has been met we will replace a puppy of equal value when one comes available.  No
problems other than life threatening congenital defects are covered in this twelve
month of age guarantee/agreement.  If at any time you transfer ownership of this
puppy, this agreement is void immediately.

J BAR T RANCH is not responsible for health of the puppy after the 72 hour period.
J BAR T RANCH cannot guarantee that any male puppy will have two testicles.
J BAR T RANCH will grant all of its dogs with full breeding rights unless otherwise
specified.  However, if the dog is unable to breed for any reason J BAR T RANCH is
not responsible and cannot guarantee the fertility of a male or female puppy.  

A show quality puppy is sold as such based on buyer’s best judgment at the time of
sale.  The puppy sold is guaranteed to be from show quality stock as supported by
the pedigree, but J BAR T RANCH cannot guarantee the continued development of
the individual puppy’s show potential.

I understand that this puppy can never be turned into a SHELTER, rescue
organization or unqualified home and if circumstances require a new home for the
puppy, buyer will contact J BAR T RANCH so we can provide assistance in finding a
secure and safe home for puppy.
