If a dog from the above named kennel is suspected of being dysplastic, the following procedure must be followed:

  1. Notify us immediately.

Stonehearth Kennels, LLP will not require the original dog to be put down or given back. This dog is now a member of your family and shall remain there. Shipping costs for replacement pups will be your responsibility, and not the responsibility of Stonehearth Kennels, LLP.

 

EYE GUARANTEE

To ensure the best possible environment for your dog’s eye development, you must be especially careful of any items or other animals that could damage your dog’s eye. Damage to your dog’s eyes, if inflicted by accident or otherwise, can prevent your dog from a CERF clear status.

Eye evaluation must be performed by an American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists certified Veterinarian. (AVCO) CERF will be the sole judge and authority. Eyes must be rejected by CERF before 12 months of age. You must contact us within 14 days of your finding and send a copy of the findings to us within 10 days of contacting us. Breeder will not be held responsible or any or all vet bills.

HEART GUARANTEE

Your puppy is guaranteed to be free from heart issues.

Within 14 days of picking up the puppy from Stonehearth Kennels, you must have a veterinarian check your dog for basic health and heart issues. The veterinarian or cardiologist must state in writing that the defect is definitely of a hereditary nature and not caused by injury or illness and that it is fatal.

If at that time or within one year of purchase date, your dog is diagnosed with a fatal heart disorder, notify us within 14 days. If any dog covered by this Heart Guarantee is found to have a fatal heart disorder, the entire purchase price may be applied to a puppy of a similar breeding from our kennels at a later date.

Stonehearth Kennels, LLP will not require the original dog to be put down or given back. This dog is now a member of your family and shall remain there. Shipping costs for replacement pups will be your responsibility and not the responsibility of Stonehearth Kennels, LLP. Breeder shall not be held responsible for any or all vet bills.
