The care must include all vaccinations recommended by the veterinarian.
You must have your puppy examined by a licensed veterinarian of your choice within (3) THREE days of purchase. If your puppy, in the opinion of the veterinarian, has any physical problems considered to be life threatening, I will provide you with a replacement puppy of equal value. If there are no puppies available, one will be provided from the next available litter whelped. If you choose a puppy of greater value, then you will be responsible for the cost difference.
