The Breeder guarantees that before the Buyer takes possession of the puppy, it will be examined by a veterinarian (usually 7 weeks of age) and deemed in good health. Said puppy is guaranteed to be in good health at the time of pick up, delivery, or shipment (before shipment.)
The Breeder gives a 72-hour health guarantee against life-threatening illnesses. The Buyer is encouraged to take the puppy to a licensed veterinarian to have it examined (at Buyer’s expense) within 72 hours (3 business days) or the guarantee is void. If the puppy is found to have a pre-existing and life-threatening problem, the Buyer must notify the Breeder at once (within the 72 hour period) with the following information:
1. Name, address, and phone number of the licensed veterinarian who examined
2. The diagnosis and all medical records.

The Buyer needs to make arrangements to return the puppy to the Breeder (at Buyer’s cost) within 48 hours from the date of diagnosis with the requested information. The Breeder will then take the puppy to their veterinarian and if the same life-threatening illness is confirmed or death occurs as a result of a life-threatening illness, the Buyer is eligible for one of the following two options:
Option 1 A refund of the paid price of your puppy with the return of the original puppy within 48 hours of examination. This excludes all delivery/shipping costs.
Option 2 A replacement puppy from the next available litter (delivery/shipping costs not included) with the return of the original puppy within 48 hours of examination.
If it is found that the puppy does not have a life-threatening illness, the Buyer may take the puppy back and pay all related veterinarian costs. If the Buyer declines to take the puppy back, no refund will be given.
The Breeder is not responsible for associated changes which may occur with moving a puppy to a new home: mental stress, low blood sugar, loose stools, giardia or coccidia, which can be caused by stress and can develop within hours in transport and has nothing to do with good or bad breeding. The Breeder agrees to be available for guidance in transitioning the puppy to its new home should any of the above occur.
The puppy is not guaranteed against diseases such as Parvovirus, Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Coronavirus, Leptospirosis, Bordetella and Lyme Disease. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to stay up to date with the puppy’s vaccinations. It is also important to keep your puppy away from public areas until the full puppy vaccination series is complete. The Buyer agrees to not put puppy on public ground (such as a park, a street with high foot traffic, beach, lake, vet clinic, sport field, etc.) before the completion of the puppy vaccination series. If travel of the puppy is needed, pet carriers are a good option. An eight (8) week-old puppy who has had age-appropriate vaccinations can still catch a contagious disease, and most likely will catch it if around a dog that suffers from the disease. When visiting your vet, keep the puppy in a pet carrier at all times. Please note that it is wise to be extremely cautious of where you allow your puppy to walk, for up to 2 weeks after the last puppy vaccination. Vaccinations can take a couple weeks in the body before your puppy is fully protected.
Buyer agrees to assume all responsibility for veterinarian expenses once the puppy leaves the possession of the breeder.
24 Month Guarantee
The Breeder agrees to a 2-year (24 month) health guarantee which covers hip dysplasia, eye diseases that are severely life altering, and any life threatening genetic diseases. The Breeder requires all medical proof (X-rays, blood work, and records) of this diagnosis from the Buyer’s certified veterinarian to validate the claims of the disabling genetic disease. In addition, the documented evidence should include a statement by the Buyer’s certified veterinarian that the defect is unquestionably a hereditary defect that could not have been, in any way, caused by environmental factors. The Buyer must get the approval of the Breeder before any surgery or treatments are to be done, otherwise this guarantee is void. Examination and testing are at the Buyer’s expense and must be done by OFA or Pennhip for Hip Dysplasia and AVCO certified veterinarian for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy). The above testing and examinations are all at the Buyer’s expense. The Buyer understands the Breeder has the right to a second opinion.
NOTE: If the dog is re-homed, euthanized or disposed of in any other way, without the Breeder’s consent or a second opinion from the Breeder’s veterinarian, the Buyer has voided this guarantee. A voided guarantee means the Buyer is no longer eligible to receive a replacement puppy or financial compensation.
The Breeder agrees that should the life threatening genetic diagnosis be confirmed, then the Buyer is eligible for one of the following options:
Option 1: The breeder will refund up to 50% of the purchase price of the puppy (not including shipping costs) for treatment reimbursement. The Buyer will provide proof of veterinary expenses and a copy of the paid invoice before reimbursement is provided.
Option 2: The Breeder offers a replacement puppy, of the breeders choice from the next available litter. The Buyer is not required to return the original dog in this situation.
If the dog is overweight, underweight or neglected, this guarantee becomes void. The Breeder will not be held responsible for the illness or death of any dog which is found injured due to neglect, malnourishment, dehydration, accident related, or abused; that could have been prevented and treated by the dog's owner.
Breeder does not guarantee against treatable nuisances such as, but not limited to, entropion, fungus, yeast, parasites, ear mites, infections, coccidia, giardia, bladder infections, urinary tract infections, undescended testicle(s), or hernias as all the above can be common in puppies and do not affect the longevity or long-term quality of life of the puppy. Kutabays Kennel has taken every precaution to avoid these issues.

To help reduces the signs of stress, feed the puppy identical food as the breeder and over bottled water, as well as taking reasonable measures to reduce stress. You can do this by slowly introducing them to the house and the members of the household, as well as limiting the time they are with strangers, children and other animals.
