The buyer agrees to take the above stated puppy to the vet for an examination within 1 week of departure from Eight Pines Bernedoodles. If the puppy is found to be in poor health at the time of this checkup the buyer has the option of returning the puppy to the Seller (at the buyer’s expense) for a full refund, less the deposit. Or if the buyer keeps the puppy the seller will reimburse vet expenses to a limit not to exceed the purchase price of the puppy (less the deposit). The buyer must inform the seller of any such circumstances within 24 hrs. of the vet’s diagnosis. It is the responsibility of the buyer, not their vet, to inform us of any such circumstances. If the buyer does not comply with the above conditions indicated the health warranty becomes null and void.

The seller provides this warranty for ONE year from the dog’s date of birth stated above. This warranty protects the dog for ONE year against debilitating hip, elbow, heart and hereditary eye disease which impacts clinically on its quality of life. If the above stated dog is inflicted with any of these conditions proof from OVC, OFA, CERF, or PennHIP must be submitted to the seller at the buyer’s expense with reference to the dog. Results must be submitted within the allotted time of the warranty. This contract does not cover anything that a certified vet might find as cosmetic problems.
If the dog is sold or euthanized before proof/documentation of the dog’s condition is sent to Eight Pines Bernedoodles the contract is null and void.
