For the protection of all parties the puppy must be examined by a licensed veterinarian at the purchasers own expense within 3 business days of taking ownership of the puppy. Failure to do so renders the health and genetic guarantee portion of this agreement null and void.

The purchaser has been made aware that the breeder feeds a raw commercially prepared diet paired with multi-vitamins, omega supplements and probiotics and it is the breeders recommendation that the puppy remain on this diet for their lifetime the brand of raw may be changed but under no circumstances will the purchaser feed Big Country Raw or this will void the health guarantee portion of this contract.
