Health Guarantee

Rail Edge’s 3 Year Puppy Health Guarantee

Summary: This puppy is guaranteed for 3 years from the date of birth against fatal and life altering congenital defects that have a serious negative effect on the dog’s life as detailed in the “What’s Covered” section. Rail Edge wants every client to have a healthy, happy puppy and we will do our best to be fair in every situation.

Seller certifies that, at transfer date, the puppy is in good health and has been immunized and dewormed according to the accompanying vet record booklet. The Buyer agrees to have the dog examined by their vet within 7 days from date of transfer and send us a report of the results. If the Dr does not give the dog a clean bill of health, Buyer must notify seller immediately.

If a puppy is found to have a problem that is covered within the 3-year time period, Buyer’s vet must send a signed and dated letter detailing the issue. The letter must include the vet’s name, license #, address, and telephone number. The puppy will be replaced with a replacement puppy asap. If the dog dies within the 3-year time frame Buyer’s vet must forward all records to Seller’s vet. Seller reserves the right to Seller’s veterinarian opinion. If the reason is found to be one of the listed covered conditions, the Seller will replace the puppy from another litter asap.

What’s covered: Conditions that warrant a puppy replacement include: degenerative myelopathy (DM), Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC), von Willebrand’s Disease (vWD1), intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), severe canine hip dysplasia (CHD) which hampers the dog’s movement and natural gait and requires surgery to correct, epilepsy, Lens luxation, progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), kidney / heart / pancreas / spine / liver problems of a severe and life threatening and/or altering nature, and death from congenital issues.

What’s not covered: Every effort has been made to ensure that your puppy will have a long, healthy life by using only genetically sound and healthy parents. However, like humans, there is always a chance of health problems. For example, dogs (especially young puppies) are susceptible to parasites etc. Buyer agrees to accept responsibility for issues that are not life threatening and are reasonably treatable. The death, injury, or loss of dog due to theft, carelessness, recklessness, abuse, neglect, heat stroke or accident will not entitle the buyer to any compensation from the seller. Any conditions caused by an injury after buyer takes possession is not covered. Puppies that have been exposed to contagious canine diseases are not covered. This puppy is warranted only for the purpose of being a companion animal, not for any other purpose or reason. Seller will not pay for any vet bills acquired after Buyer takes possession.

Good care agreement: The Buyer agrees to take good care of this dog, feed and house the dog properly, maintain shots, pay for all vet bills that are acquired, follow the “Age-Appropriate Exercise Guidelines Booklet” by Jane Messineo Lindquist that we will send home with puppy. Not following this Exercise Guideline booklet can lead to your puppy having issues in the hips and other joint issues later in life.

Buyer will control the dog on a harness or leash when in public. The dog’s outdoor area will be fenced in and secure, or acceptable provisions will be made to assure the dog is safe. Buyer agrees to give the dog proper physical and emotional care and welfare, including firm, loving leadership.

Buyer agrees to protect their puppy from one of the most common health problems: obesity. Keeping a Corgi at an appropriate weight and following the exercise guideline booklet that comes with the puppy are important ways to help prevent joint/health problems and extend a happy, active life.

Rehoming Agreement: Buyer agrees that if they cannot keep puppy for any reason throughout its lifetime, they will not surrender it to a shelter or similar facility but instead will find a good home, and notify Seller of the change of ownership. The spay/neuter agreement still applies to the new owner if the puppy is not fixed at the time of re-homing. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to make sure the new owner knows the puppy must be fixed by 1 year old.
If Buyer cannot find a good home, then Seller will accept the dog back and find another good home for it.

Spay/Neuter Agreement: Fixing your dog prevents unexpected pregnancies, keeps both sexes from roaming away during estrus, reduces the tendency of male dogs to urinate on everything and fight with other males. Additionally, it greatly reduces reproductive-related problems such as tumors, pyometra, prostate infections, and reproductive related cancers. Buyer agrees to spay or neuter this dog before it is one year old and send us confirmation that it has been completed. Buyer also agrees to prevent their dog from any breeding before it is spayed or neutered. This spay/neuter agreement stays with this puppy and is transferred to any or all future owner(s) in the event of re-homing.
