Health Guarantee & Contract

    Mockingbird Hill Kennel will register your puppy.  You will receive the registration papers directly from AKC.  We will also register your puppy's microchip in the AKC Reunite Program at no charge to you.  There is a DVD attached that will explain the Puppy Protection Program offered by Mockingbird & the American Kennel Club.  Please take time to view it.  It will explain the Insurance that is free of charge for 30 days, the free magazine that you will receive for one year, & the free lifetime training available for the life of your dog.  Again all offered free of charge by Mockingbird & AKC to help you be a better owner, trainer & protector of your new friend.
Mockingbird Hill Kennel guarantees this puppy to be free of all life threatening communicable diseases for a period of 10 days from the date of receipt of the puppy stated on this record.  It is the new owners responsibility to take this pup to their veterinarian in the first 7 days after receipt to set up a schedule for immunizations and de-wormings that their veterinarian feels are appropriate and to have a well puppy check for this puppy.  Failure to do so will make this guarantee null & void.  Your puppy is registered through AKC. Be sure to check the CD provided by them so that you have knowledge important to the insurance.  That insurance does not cover Coccidia or Gerardia.  If you have a problem call Karey.  She will be of help.  Both of these are caused by the stress of shipping and can be treated very easily.
     Mockingbird Hill Kennel also guarantees this puppy to be free of life threatening genetic defects until the puppy reaches the age of two years.  Should a problem occur, Mockingbird Hill Kennel will replace the puppy or give $200 towards surgery if it becomes necessary.  The client is responsible for shipping charges should we replace the puppy.  We do not cover skeletal defects on dogs who have not been fed dog feeds that do not meet the standards for correct skeletal growth. 
          If this puppy displays any indication of poor health within the first 10 days we must be contacted and the puppy must be taken to a Veterinarian for any necessary treatment.  Failure to do so will cause this guarantee to become null and void.  Please contact us and your veterinary.  We are here to help if you need us.  We remind you that a health record is provided by us to you.  Please take it to your vet so that you are not charged for unfair charges.  
     We guarantee that all shots and de-worming have been done that is stated on the Veterinary Record.
     It is strongly recommended that all puppies be neutered or spayed.  Doing so will cut down on the amount of unwanted pets.  It is a wonderful thing to bring young puppies into this world, however we suggest that they enter the world under the qualified direction of professional breeders who know what to do when problems occur, know the proper medications to give and can give the proper socialization to each and every individual puppy.
     Show/ Breed  Puppies are sold with full breeding rights.  An up-charge of $500 will be added to the price.  You must keep us informed of all titles earned and provide us with a link to win photographs.  Anyone wishing to have Genetic Testing done before purchase may do so by purchasing through Paw Print Genetics, must send the kit to us.  We will swab the pup and send the test back to the Paw Print.   We do not guarantee Genetic Tests after the puppy leaves our facility.

    The name "Mockingbird" will appear beginning the name of the puppy.
    I will never overlook my responsibilities for this living being and recognize that my dog’s welfare is totally dependent on me.
