We at "HOUNDSLABSRUS" guarantee our puppies are free of congenital and/or hereditary defects until one year of age. New owners must take their puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 3 (three) business days of receiving for its initial veterinary exam and keep current on all vaccinations, wormings, and check-ups. We require a copy of this visit mailed to us, as it will show you did uphold this requirement. Copy of the vet visit and any other paperwork requested must be received within two weeks of receiving puppy or all guarantees and warranties are null and void. Puppies will receive 1st puppy shot at 6 weeks of age, second at 8 weeks, and any others due every 3 weeks, and worming every two weeks til time of pickup or shipment. If puppy is given any vaccinations within 10 (ten) days after receiving puppy, unless otherwise informed to do so by "HOUNDSLABSRUS" in writing, this guarantee is null and void.
"HOUNDSLABSRUS" does not guarantee against coccidiosis, giardia, worms, mites, or any other parasites (internal and external). Coccidia is a bacterial infection brought on by stress and diet change. Giardia is an infection brought on by infected drinking water. Worms recycle often, and it is important that you maintain a proper worming schedule. Mites and other parasites (internal and external) can be picked up anywhere. We do not guarantee against parvo after the first 72 hours.
If new puppy is found to have any congenital and/or hereditary defects, that are life threatening or make it unsuitable as "pet quality", before one year of age, "HOUNDSLABSRUS" will replace (within one years time) said puppy with another puppy of same breed, but different parents, shipping costs are responsibility of new owner. Vet diagnosis, vet exam, tests performed and results, and xrays must be received within two business days of diagnosis, from two different licensed vets. The following are not considered life threatening or serious, and therefore are not covered: umbilical hernia, overbite, underbite, cherry eye, or undescended testicle. Problems developed from overweight, underweight, accidents, and/or improper care or treatment of puppy are not covered. Before replacement, registration papers and all other paperwork of said puppy must be surrendered to "HOUNDSLABSRUS" along with notification, by licensed veterinarian, of euthanasia of said puppy performed by a licensed veterinarian within two business days of diagnosis. If euthanasia is not performed in this time period of two business days of diagnosis, this guarantee in null and void. No replacement will be given.

We want all our puppies to be able to grow up in safe, loving, and happy homes, not at the local pound. No refund will be given. If puppy is returned to "HOUNDSLABSRUS", all return costs are the responsibility of the current owner.
