Crockett Doodles guarantees your puppy to be in good health, to the best of our knowledge, on the day of your purchase.
It is the buyer’s responsibility to have an appointment at your Vet’s office for a well check within 7 days of the purchase of the puppy. This is done in order to establish the puppy was sold to you in good health. Buyer must make Seller aware immediately of any problems found by their Vet through this exam. If Buyer fails to have the new puppy examined by a licensed Vet upon possession within this 7 day period, they agree the dog was healthy at the time of transfer. It is helpful to bring a stool sample to the Vet for the first exam.
Buyer should be aware that stress brought on by environmental change can often times bring on signs of illness caused by these stressful circumstances. Usually temporary, these still need to be treated with attention especially if there is diarrhea. A healthy immune system can be lowered immediately through stress, and the stress can cause diarrhea. This is due to the immune system being stressed during the transition from the home environment to his/her new environment. When a pup has a good immune system in place, his body is usually able to keep at bay many parasites such as worms and environmental factors such as Giardia or Coccidia. Once it has been lowered, these if present in the system, will flourish when they get the chance. It is nothing to be alarmed about and is very common in puppies. The puppies will act normal and usually have a good appetite but their stool will become soft and sometimes runny. This can easily be treated, and your Veterinarian can perform a new stool sample to find out if there is anything present in the pup’s system if symptoms continue in order to give proper treatment.
The Buyer has the right to return the puppy to the seller within 7 days after delivery and receive a refund of the purchase price if the puppy is found by a veterinarian to be suffering from any illness or disease at this time. If the puppy is not examined by a professional Veterinarian within this 7 day period the above mentioned return/refund policy will be void. We have no control where you will take your puppy after you leave here. It is the buyer’s responsibility to protect the puppy from any contact with communicable diseases by not exposing it to public places and keeping up to date on immunizations. Keeping your puppy away from public parks and beaches, etc, until at least 4 months of age or when the puppy has completed his immunizations is recommended.
Crockett Doodles guarantees the puppy is free of hereditary defects to the best of our knowledge. All of our puppies come with a one year guarantee against life threatening genetic defects. If you feed the best dog food that we recommend--TLC whole life puppy food (and later TLC dog food)—we will extend our guarantee to three years instead of one. Your puppy will be guaranteed against hip dysplasia, organ failure, or any debilitating disease that would cause the dog to lose quality of life at a young age. Written diagnosis by your vet with proof of lab testing and x-rays will be required in the event a dog has lost quality of life at this time by either early onset of debilitating disease or hip dysplasia. OFA Results proving signs of hip dysplasia must be available for all hip guarantees. A full refund of the purchase price or the choice of a replacement puppy would be offered. Crockett Doodles is under no obligation to pay for veterinary bills for your puppy. If you find that the puppy has a major problem (as discussed above), you are welcomed to have a replacement puppy or a refund, but Crockett Doodles is not responsible for your veterinary bills if you choose to treat the puppy on your own.
A written explanation from your veterinarian will be required, with proper identification of your dog including size/weight, sex and color, Microchip number included on the diagnosis. A Spay/Neuter certificate dated before the 12 month age of your dog is required as well. Items not covered under this guarantee would be any form of cancers, allergies, mild skin conditions, occasional seizures, diabetes, hip problems due to an overweight or over worked young dog, behavior issues, problems related to parasite infestation or human neglect. Many of these problems can be alleviated through environmental or diet changes that we have no control over. It should also be noted that our Health Guarantee does not extend past a puppies first owner. If any Crockett Doodle is resold or gifted to another home at any point the spay/neuter contract is still active, but our Health Guarantee no longer applies.
Please keep your dog up to date on all immunizations and heartworm programs as this will be required to fulfill this guarantee. In the event a pup/dog under one was diagnosed with a deadly form of cancer or any illness that would cause his life to be shortened beyond 3 years we would offer a replacement puppy at any time after diagnosis or after loss of the dog due to illness.
In the event the puppy was sold at a price other than the going litter price because of age, hair coat, etc. then the amount paid for your puppy would be returned or it would be applied toward the full price of a new puppy from a different litter should any abnormalities be found on or before one year of age. A replacement puppy of like kind at no cost may be an option if diagnosis is made within the first year of the dog’s life.
The buyer shall maintain the puppy in proper condition by adhering to a regular immunization schedule, heartworm preventative, good diet and exercise and a safe, clean and loving environment. There is no replacement guarantee or refund for problems attributed to the dog’s poor health by irresponsible care, conditions caused by dogs being overweight, allergies, accidental injuries or death. All guarantees are to the original buyer and are not transferable.
Although we can try to make predictions (our best guess) on the following characteristics, we cannot guarantee them: dog’s final personality, dog’s coat color, hypoallergenicity, shedding, size, weight, or final coat type when the dog is fully grown. Dogs are animals, and like humans, they can vary significantly even within one family. Hybrid breed dogs can be quite difficult to predict with accuracy, so we cannot guarantee a dog’s personality, coat color, hypoallergenicity, shedding, size, weight, or coat type.
Our puppies are sold as companion dogs and not as breeding dogs. If your dog has not been neutered or spayed by 12 months old this entire guarantee will be null and void. Proper Vet verification of this procedure will be required in the event you decide to redeem guarantee. We do this because it is our desire to make sure all offspring are the result of responsible breeding procedures.
We strive to do our best to be available to you with any future questions concerning your dog. We want pictures so we can brag about him or her too. We would love to watch them grow and would want to know of any dogs that have completed any service or therapy dog classes etc.
