Health Guarantee & Contract

  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.  
     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 your veterinary first.  We are here to help if you need us.
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 of the puppy. You must keep us informed of any titles earned and provide us with win photographs.  Anyone wishing to have Genetic Testing done before purchase must send the kit to us with appropriate fees.  We will be glad to send them in for you.  We do not guarantee Genetic Tests after the puppy leaves our facility.

Any puppy sold overseas will be subject to a $750 fee for holding the puppy to appropriate age for shipment (15 weeks of age) unless they fly here to pick up the puppy at 8-10 weeks old.
