1 If puppy is sold as a companion only, the puppy must be altered, but not prior to a year. Early altering has been associated with hip dysplasia, because the dog does not get the required hormones for proper growth. You need to wait until the growth plates close. If the puppy is altered prior to a year, then that voids this health guarantee. Altering should be done optimally at 15-18 months.

Seller retains the right to chose replacement puppy, applying equal or greater financial value to new puppy, after confirmation that conditions of claim exists.

4. The above described canine is guaranteed against crippling hip dysplasia as certified by PennHip or OFA until the dog’s first birthday.
