Rail Edge’s 2 Year Puppy Health Guarantee
The seller certifies that, upon receipt of buyer, the dog is in good health and has been immunized and dewormed according to the accompanying health record of said puppy.
This puppy is guaranteed for 2 years from the date of purchase against fatal and life altering congenital diseases that adversely affects the health of the animal as detailed in the “What’s Covered” section.
Process: The buyer agrees to have the dog examined by a veterinarian at buyer’s expense within 7 days from date of transfer and send us a copy of the results, failure to do so will void this health guarantee. If the veterinarian does not give the dog a clean bill of health, buyer must notify seller immediately. The seller reserves the right to a second veterinarian opinion at the expense of the seller.
If a puppy is found to have a problem that is covered as detailed below within the 2-year time period, the buyer’s vet must send a certified letter that’s signed and dated with the said non-treatable defects/illness. The letter must include the vet’s name, address and telephone number. No cash refunds are given for returned puppies. The puppy will be replaced with a puppy of equal value, same sex, and color if possible within one calendar year of its return.
What’s covered: Conditions that warrant return of the puppy include: degenerative myelopathy (DM), Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC), von Willebrand’s Disease (vWD), intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), severe canine hip dysplasia (CHD) which hampers the dog’s movement and natural gait and which 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.
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 breeding stock. However, like humans, there is always a chance of health problems. Buyer agrees to accept responsibility for problems 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 reasons. Seller will not be responsible for any vet bills acquired after buyer takes possession.
Worst Case Scenario: If the dog dies within the 2-year time frame, the buyer must pay to have the animal autopsied to determine the reason. The seller reserves the right to a second veterinarian opinion at the expense of the seller. If the reason is found to be one of the listed/covered conditions, the Seller will replace the puppy from another litter when available.
The Buyer’s Responsibility: 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, control the dog on a harness or leash when in public and when off the premises of the dog’s home. The dog’s outdoor area will be fenced in and secure, or acceptable provisions will be made to assure the dog is safe any time he/she is outdoors. Buyer agrees to give the dog proper physical and emotional care and welfare; including firm, loving leadership.
Remember that after you’ve taken a new puppy into your home, you have the power to protect him from one of the most common health problems: obesity. Pembrokes like to eat and have been described as “walking stomachs.” Keeping a Pembroke at an appropriate weight is one of the easiest ways to help prevent joint problems and extend his happy life.
Rehoming Agreement: Buyer agrees that if he/she cannot keep above puppy for any reason throughout its lifetime he/she will not surrender it to a shelter or similar facility but instead will find a good home for it and notify Seller of the change of ownership of dog. The spay/neuter agreement below also 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 look after finding another good home for it. If Buyer wants Seller to take the puppy back, partial refund may be considered.
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, pyrometra, 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 and all future owners in the event of re-homing.
