Puppy Health Guarantee
The Buyer is guaranteed a healthy puppy. All puppies will come with their first set of shots. It is highly recommended by the Seller to follow the vaccination schedule outlined at https://jacobsonkennel.com/puppy-vaccination-schedule/ to keep your dog safe. At the option and expense of the buyer, the puppy should be taken to a veterinarian within 5 days of purchase. If the puppy is found unhealthy, the buyer will receive a 100% refund, provided the dog is returned immediately to the Seller.
This does not include conditions that are the result of the buyer’s negligence or accidental occurrence. This also does not include illness or opportunistic parasite that might occur due to the stress of moving the puppy to the Buyer’s home. Stress of the move might cause: hypoglycemia, coccidia, giardia, kennel cough, etc.
Seller warrants the health of the puppy for the first 12 months of life. During those 12 months the dog will be free of hereditary crippling defects as described by www.ofa.org. If such defects occur, one of the following will apply at the discretion of the Seller.
- Refund of the purchase price if returned to the Seller.
- Replacement of the puppy, once one becomes available, provided that the puppy is returned to the seller.
- Since a great deal of time, money and emotion will be invested in the puppy by the Buyer. One half of the purchase price will be refunded once the seller has received: acceptable verification of said fault and confirmation that the dog has been spayed/neutered and properly treated for said fault.
Guarantee is for the first 12 months of life. All claims must be submitted before puppies 1st birthday. If during this time frame it’s determined that the puppy does indeed have a hereditary crippling defect and the Buyer determines that they want a replacement puppy, the Buyer will then have the option to choose such puppy from a future litter when available.
If the puppy becomes ill and the Buyer has the puppy euthanized without Seller consent, no such replacement puppy or refund shall be made. If the Buyer qualifies for a refund or replacement and declines, then the Seller is under no further obligations and will be deemed that the Buyer has released the Seller from any and all future claims, obligations or duty on this agreement.
IMPORTANT: SELLER SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MEDICAL EXPENSES, VETERINARIAN BILLS, OR ANY OTHER COST THAT THE BUYER HAS INCURRED.
THE SELLER WILL NOT COVER ANY RETURN SHIPMENT OF THE PUPPY AS WELL.

First Right of Refusal!
Buyer agrees that the puppy will never be sold, leased or given to any pet shop, fighting institution, animal shelter, rescue, research laboratory or other similar facility. The Buyer agrees to return the dog to the Seller if for any reason the Buyer no longer wants to or is unable to keep the dog. Seller agrees to either assist Buyer in finding another suitable home where the dog will receive proper care or to accept the dog back at any time with no refund to be given to the Buyer as Seller would accept responsibility for the dog and would be responsible for the future cost or care including vet care and training.
In the event that the dog is mistreated, neglected, or abused in any way, Seller has the right to rescue the dog immediately, without notice or compensation to the Buyer. Buyer shall voluntarily surrender the dog and any kennel club registration they may have.
A down payment can be placed on a puppy to reserve the puppy you want. This down payment is non-refundable, except for in the rare case the puppy dies, so make sure you want the puppy before making the down payment. Payment is due in full before the puppy leaves the Seller property. Payment can be cash on pickup or if the Buyer cannot do local pickup, payment will be arranged through PayPal or Venmo.
Puppies are held free up to nine weeks old. If the puppy is not picked up after the ninth week is up, there will be a $5 charge per day to the Buyer until the puppy is picked up.
