It is recommended that the purchaser arrange for a veterinarian examination of the pup within the first seven days after the date of physical transfer of the pup for a health checkup.  Should the veterinarian determine this dog to be in ill health, the cause of which is clearly attributable to the Seller, this dog may, upon presentation of a written diagnosis from said veterinarian, be returned for a refund of purchase price. Upon receipt of the puppy, the Seller shall be obligated to replace the puppy with one of equal quality from the current litter or future litter of the above mentioned sire and dam, and further performance under this contract shall be null and void.  The Buyer may also elect to accept a puppy from a current or future litter with other parents if the wait time will diminish greatly. If this dog should develop a major communicable disease (i.e. Distemper, Parvo etc.) within seven days from the date of transfer, the Seller must be notified immediately and will provide instructions for refund or replacement.  Any veterinarian’s diagnosis shall be subject to confirmation by a veterinarian chosen and paid for by Seller.  Should said veterinarian not concur with the diagnosis of Buyer’s veterinarian, the matter shall be presented to a third veterinarian (cost shared between Buyer and Seller) for final diagnosis.  

Vaccinations:  The Weimaraner Club of America has established a special protocol for vaccinating Weimaraner puppies due to immuno-deficiency problems in this breed.  It is in your and your pup’s best interest to adhere to this protocol.  Depending on the age of this pup at time of purchase will determine whether the pup has received any vaccinations. 

Seller does not assume responsibility for any other veterinary bills or other expenses incurred by the purchaser on behalf of the dog after the dog has left the kennel. 
The 2 year health guarentee is limited to genetic issues associated with the weimaraner breed and does not include infections, parasites, injuries occuring after leaving our property and other randomly occuring illnesses (ie cancers).

The Buyer agrees to maintain preventative health care of the puppy including, but not limited to:  inoculations, internal as well as external parasites, heartworm preventative medication.  In the event a Buyer exercises return rights under one year health guarantee, all documentation that the above maintenance has been performed must be provided to Seller.  If the buyer does not provide such proof that every step was taken to assure the good health of the puppy, no refund or replacement puppy will be given. 

The Buyer agrees to maintain preventative care of the puppy in regards to hip dysplasia, such as proper nutrition, proper exercise, and preventing stress injuries (i.e. not allowing the puppy to jump from heights taller than itself at the shoulder, no forced exercise such as running, until at least 12 months of age.)  The buyer further understands that this puppy is not being sold with a guarantee against Canine Hip Dysplasia, as that condition can be caused by environmental situations that are not within the control of the seller once buyer assumes possession.  

The Buyer agrees to feed the puppy Eukaneuba Large Breed Puppy for the length of 6 months after picking up their puppy.

Should the dog develop crippling hip dysplasia and/or be ex-rayed and OFA rated moderate or sever before reaching twenty eight months of age, (with verification of the hip condition signed by a veterinarian provided) then Prairie Shadow Dogs will replace the dog as soon as one becomes available – or buyer has option to retain ownership of said dog.

The Buyer agrees that the puppy will NOT be left alone in backyard or kennel only.  The Buyer agrees that the puppy will reside inside the home of the Buyer, and not be chained or “tied out”.  This animal is sold with the understanding that it was to go to select homes, socialized properly, and become a member of the family. 

This Agreement is made and signed by both parties to insure the well being and protection of this animal.  If any part of this Agreement is breached, the Seller is released from any further obligations hereunder.
