Genetic Health Warranty
1. I guarantee this dog to be free of PRA, CEA eye and HD.
A Veterinary Optometrist must examine the dog and perform a CERF test and a CEA test should be performed at a genetic lab
for these guarantees to be valid. In order for the Hip Guarantee to be valid the dog must be x-rayed and the x-rays sent off
to the OFA for certification and rating. It is required that this puppy be OFA certified when 24 months old or this guarantee
will become void.
The buyer shall be responsible for any expenses incurred
for these tests. Copies of these tests must be mailed to the breeder.
2. If, by an unforeseen chance, the puppy is diagnosed with
dysplasia (HD) or any of the above named diseases, at buyer’s request, seller will take the Border collie back and replace
it with a puppy of seller’s choice, at seller’s convenience. The buyer will be responsible for all cost associated
with the replacement.
In the event Buyer elect to keep a dog that has been diagnosed
with hip dysplasia or any of the above named diseases, all veterinary costs and expenses related to the hip dysplasia and
its treatment become the SOLE responsibility of the buyer.
3. There will be no refund or replacement if the puppy is
worked on cattle or "non dog broke sheep" before 12 months of age. The original dog must be returned to the breeder, or no
replacement will be given.
*Since Hip dysplasia is polygenic (involves many different
genes) and multifactor (influenced by many non-genetic factors), Seller can not guarantee a specific Penn Hip score. However,
everything possible is done to make sure the puppy has no indications of dysplasia.
Only sound, tested dogs are used as breeding stock, and the
puppy’s bones are provided the best start in life. This hip dysplasia guarantee will be null and void if said puppy
is trained in agility/freesbie catching/jogging prior to 6 months old, since joints need time to grow and should not have
any strain of such activity. It is recommended that Jogging and Freesbie be started at 1 year old and up.
*In the event the seller breaches any of the foregoing guarantees,
seller’s liability is limited to the replacement of the above-described animal by a replacement puppy of the seller’s
choice at the seller’s convenience.

Parainfluenza and Adenovirus type 2 only.
2. Seller must have puppy examined by his/her vet within
the first 72 hours of purchase; otherwise this health guarantee will be void. If a written notice by your vet within 72 hours
of leaving our care shows this puppy to have any of the above described puppy diseases, and our vet confirms this, we will
replace the puppy with another puppy of the same sex and value of breeder’s choice as soon as one becomes available.
No cash refunds-replacement only. A health record and shot schedule will be provided. The breeder shall not be responsible
for any medical expenses incurred after purchase.
