Buyer will only receive a puppy of the same sex being replaced, NO EXCEPTIONS. 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.
