1.) To the best of our knowledge and belief at the time of Re-Homing, the health and temperament of this dog is excellent.
2.) 1 year 100% “Bumper to Bumper” guarantee on puppies purchased though us for all provable genetic defects not including hips/elbows. Buyer must submit veterinary proof of genetic disease or disorder such as, lab reports and/or x-rays. Please see hip and elbow guarantee in paragraph 3. This is a replacement guarantee only, for a puppy/dog of equal value at time of Re-Homing, unless other arrangements are mutually agreed upon.
3.) The Buyer agrees to maintain preventative care of the puppy/dog in regards to hip/elbow dysplasia, such as proper nutrition, proper exercise, and preventing stress injuries. We guarantee our puppies to pass OFA certification and as such the buyer must have the dog x-rayed between 24 and 28 months of age. Failure to do so voids the warranty. If the dog receives a moderate or severe dysplasia rating the dog should be returned to us at the expense of the buyer. We will replace the dog (due to crippling hip/elbow dysplasia) as soon as possible with a replacement of equal value at the time of purchase. We reserve the right to request that the x-ray be sent first for review by a board certified veterinary radiologist or OFFA. Should the buyer prefer to retain said dog, it must be sterilized and a copy of the certificate must be sent to Yosemite Shepherds.
4.) Delivery accommodations shall be air freight prepaid to a nearby airport that accepts live animals. Buyer is solely responsible for cost of freight charges in addition to purchase price of dog except where indicated that the price includes air freight to Buyer’s locale.
5.) Buyer agrees to allow Seller the right of first refusal should Buyer decide to sell, relinquish or transfer puppy/dog. This sales guarantee applies to the original puppy/dog owner only and is non-transferable to a second party.
6.) All re-homings are final and deposits are non-refundable. Deposits on animals are valid for 30 days or until puppy is 10 weeks of age, failure to maintain proper contact and/or remit timely lease payments will result in forfeiture of said deposit. Deposit can be placed on a different puppy/dog after forfeiture when mutual agreements are made.
7.) Sterilizing your dog: In order to maintain a valid health guarantee Buyer agrees to NOT spay or neuter said dog until 11 months of age minimum but then must at 1 1/2 year or before. There are no added health benefits to early sterilization and it can lead to overall smaller stature and extended immaturity. Sterilizing said dog previous to 11 months of age will render this guarantee void.
8.)All of our puppies are re-homed as pets only. We offer very limited number of our puppies to leave with full breeding rights & papers. You must be pre-approved.
