In either instance, BUYER will be reimbursed for veterinary fees incurred before the death of the Cockapoo Puppy if the death occurs within 72 TOTAL hours from date/time of pick up /delivery to BUYER, except where death occurs by accident or injury sustained during that period.

PLEASE NOTE: at no time, in any part of this Warranty, do we Warranty against conditions brought on by environmental changes, stress or exposure to adverse conditions that we cannot control once the puppy leaves our care. If the puppy shows no signs or symptoms of a problem we do not and cannot treat them.

BUYER AGREES to take their puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 72 TOTAL hours from date/time of pick up/delivery (including week ends and holidays) from the Seller. This veterinarian appointment must include an overall health exam and fecal exam. If your regular veterinarian is not available, you are required to take the puppy to another veterinarian. Failure to have this exam on file will cause this guarantee to be null and void.
BUYER AGREES they will maintain the puppy in good condition according to veterinarian recommendations, including but not limited to adherence to a regular immunization schedule, heartworm preventative, spay/neuter, proper nutrition/weight for age and structure, annual worming, and flea prevention.

Parvovirus is not covered by this Warranty as the puppy has only been started on it's inoculations prior to going to their new home and family. Your puppy's immune system is not fully developed until he/she has completed it's series of puppy shots. Therefore we strongly urge you to take the following precautions:
Visits to the vet: Never put your puppy on the floor or the ground outside of the clinic, instead carry your puppy or use a pet carrier. Ask the vet staff to disinfect the exam table before you set your pup down for his/her exam. I know this may sound overly cautious but there are a lot of animals visiting the vet.
Dog parks, pet shops, puppy preschool, rest areas along freeways/roads and areas where other dogs of unknown health may have visited, should be off limits until your pup has completed his/her series of puppy shots.
At no time do we reimburse for time off work, travel time or gas expenses.
Shipping/transportation fees are not included in warranty. Shipping/transportation charges are the responsibility of the Buyer in all instances.
We do not give any guarantee for adult size/structure, color changes, coat texture, eye coloring, shedding or hypo allergenic.
Shipping is available at buyers expense. Shipping cost is NOT included in the price of the puppy. Shipping is not available from 5/15 to 9/15. Shipping other times of the year is $435 which includes airfare on Delta Airlines, vet visit for the required FDA health certificate to fly, airline approved carrier, gas/time to/from airport and airport parking. Final balance of the Cockapoo puppy and airfare must be paid 10 (ten) days prior to departure. Failure to pay 10 (ten) days prior to departure renders the sale null and void and the deposit is forfeited.
