Great care is given to ensure the good health and disposition of each and every puppy produced by Eaglegate Shih Tzus. Each puppy will have had a health examination by a licensed Veterinarian, is current on vaccinations before ever being received by the Buyer. Therefore, this dog is in good health to my knowledge at the time of receipt. Seller will provide a one year guarantee on said dog, from the time of the receipt of the said dog, for only a genetic condition that is sufficiently serious in the written opinion of two qualified Veterinarians, at least one of whom is selected by the Seller, to warrant euthanization of the said dog, and is brought to my attention within 48 hours of examination. Buyer must send a copy of the Veterinarian's report by registered mail within the above 48 hours. Seller is not responsible for any Veterinarian costs incurred by said dog. Buyer has the option of returning said dog at this time and will receive a replacement puppy of same value only, from Seller's next available litter. If dog expires within the one year, Buyer agrees to have an autopsy performed on said dog and any testing of tissues needed to determine cause of death.

Buyer agrees not to expose the said dog to any public places or strange dogs until the said dog received the full series of vaccinations required by a Veterinarian.

Buyer agrees that because of this risk, if said dog is not fed for any reason for more that 6 hours at any time that any and all health guarantees are null and void. Buyer also acknowledges that smaller Shih Tzus may have open fontanelles for a longer period of time and agree to take precautions to safeguard said dog and not hold Seller responsible for any injury. Buyer acknowledges umbilical hernias and pinched nostrils are very common among the Shih Tzu breed therefore not guaranteed by this contract. Seller is not responsible for any Veterinarian costs incurred for said dog. Seller has estimated the puppy's size from past experience of past litters.

If you have paid for the breeding rights, this is only for the right to breed the said dog and Seller has given full AKC registration instead of limited registration, Seller does not guarantee said dog will be able to breed as nature will take it's course and have the last say.

Buyer understands and agrees Seller sells perfect pets only as loving, intelligent, wonderful companions. Buyer understands and agrees Seller does not sell breeders or show dogs.
Seller agrees said dog may be returned for any reason if Buyer cannot keep it. Seller agrees to help place said dog for the Buyer. Buyer agrees said dog is never to be placed in a shelter or rescue and that if this is the only option available at the time, Buyer agrees to return said dog to the Seller.
