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.
