What is covered in our Health Guarantee
Dandy Doodles and Poodle 36 Month Health Guarantee and Purchase Agreement
Dandy Doodles and Poodles guarantees this puppy from being affected from Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA), Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration (PRCD), Von Willebrand Disease Type II (VWDII), Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) and Hip Dysplasia for 36 months after date of purchase. This guarantee does not include being a “carrier” for any of these diseases due to the fact that being a carrier does not affect the puppy’s health in any way. Puppies that are carriers will not have symptoms of the disease or become sick. Buyer must have official written documentation from the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation of Animals) of bilateral dysplasia before a replacement puppy is granted for Hip Dysplasia and documented proof of a DNA genetic disease panel for the genetic disease being claimed. Seller does not require that the puppy be returned. Seller’s policy allows buyer to a replacement of their choice of a puppy of the same sex, color and quality that Seller has currently available, or a puppy from a future litter at no cost. If the Buyer wants a replacement puppy that differs from the puppy being replaced, Buyer assumes responsibility to pay any additional fees connected with the replacement puppy. Shipping/ delivery fees are the Buyer’s responsibility for the replacement puppy or if decided to send original puppy back to Seller for replacement. If a replacement puppy is being granted due to death of the original puppy, Buyer has to send back the body of the deceased puppy at Buyer’s expense to be examined by Seller’s vet in order to determine cause of death. If cause of death is found to be from neglect no replacement puppy will be granted and all communication will be ended. No replacement will be granted if diagnosis is inconclusive. If the Buyer chooses a replacement puppy of the opposite sex of the original puppy, and the Buyer chooses to keep the original puppy, the original puppy will have to be spayed or neutered before replacement puppy is granted. If the puppy is found to have Hip Dysplasia or DNA proven genetic disease, Seller will refund monetary value of up to half of the price of the puppy, if medical bills are incurred because of ailment during the 36 months of this guarantee. Vet records will be requested by Seller before any refund will be given in order to verify treatment.
This is a binding contract with the purpose to protect the Seller, the Buyer and the puppy.

This puppy is to be paid for in full on or before the date the puppy is 6 weeks of age. Failure to pay the balance due on or before this date (unless otherwise specified) ______________________________ Buyer loses option to purchase the puppy and the puppy will become available to sell to someone else and Buyer loses the reservation fee placed.
