GUARANTEE
                                   PINE CONE KENNELS GUARANTEE

Thank you very much for adopting your puppy from Pine Cone Kennels. As professionals, we raise healthy, happy puppies! We spoil each one with attention daily. They are well socialized and have less stress leaving familiar surroundings.

Your new puppy comes with a medical record, current vaccinations, and de-worming schedule. A Health Certificate is sent with puppies leaving the state of Missouri, or in Missouri, at the purchaser’s request. The puppy you have adopted from Pine Cone Kennels is guaranteed to be healthy at the time of leaving our kennel. This health guarantee stipulates that you take the puppy to a licensed veterinarian within three days of puppy leaving the kennel; failure to do so will nullify this health guarantee. A copy of the signed and dated guarantee by you and your veterinarian must be returned to us within two weeks after receiving the puppy. The puppy will be current on all age appropriate vaccinations and de-worming. Pine Cone Kennels guarantees the puppy for seven (7) days from the date of adoption upon leaving kennel premises against Parvo virus, Distemper and Para influenza. There are certain disorders that may be caused by environmental factors, for example: allergies, hypoglycemia, respiratory infections, coccidiosis, kennel cough, or giardia. These problems are preventable and/or treatable. Pine Cone Kennels is sanitary and makes every effort to see that Buyer’s puppy does not arrive with any of these conditions, however, due to their nature, such cannot be guaranteed. This guarantee does not cover minor illnesses, hernias, illnesses caused by the ingestion of foreign objects or chemicals, or physical injury. Should your puppy contract any of these diseases, Parvo virus, Distemper or Para influenza, within this period, Pine Cone Kennels should be contacted at once and requires a signed form with the diagnosis from your licensed veterinarian. Pine Cone Kennels reserves the right to request an examination by our own veterinarian, and to ask that our veterinarian be contacted by the consulting veterinarian, or one recommended by our veterinarian. Positive identification must be provided by a licensed Vet.

Pine Cone Kennels also guarantees the puppy against life threatening hereditary defects for a period of one year from the puppy's date of birth. If the puppy is proved to have a debilitating hereditary defect within 1 year from its date of birth and is returned to us, all shipping charges are the responsibility of the purchaser. All vet charges incurred by the purchaser are the sole responsibility of the purchaser and will under no circumstances be paid by Pine Cone Kennels. Positive identification must be provided by a licensed Vet. Claims must be accompanied by a licensed veterinarian’s health certificate with a full explanation of the problem; lab tests, x-rays, medications, veterinarians findings, etc. and must be received in our office within 10 days of the first visit. We reserve the right to ask for a second opinion of our veterinarian, at our expense. We will adhere to the advice and / or the diagnosis of our veterinarian. Should your puppy die in the stated time period above, an autopsy by a licensed veterinarian at buyer’s expense stating the cause of death, will be required before a replacement would be made.  In the event of such occurrence, Pine Cone Kennels will replace the puppy with a puppy of the same gender, quality and value as soon as a puppy is available, provided the veterinarian's statement is submitted to Pine Cone Kennels within ten (10) days of the date of the diagnosis. There will be NO CASH OR CREDIT refunds. Any legal action taken due to disagreements will be filed and resolved in the Butler County, Missouri, legal system. Our guarantee is to the purchaser only and expires if the puppy is transferred to another party.

This puppy is being adopted to a pet home. It is hereby understood by both buyer and seller that the buyer is responsible for any and all veterinarian costs after the date of adoption and that no other guarantees are made or implied by Pine Cone Kennels, except those stated in this written guarantee. The buyer agrees that Pine Cone Kennels’ obligation ceases and this contract is void if buyer does not continue a regular veterinary maintenance program of de-worming, vaccination series, proper care of your puppy, fails to see a qualified veterinarian within three (3) days after puppy has left kennel; deprives the puppy of any medical treatment needed; or physically abuses and / or neglects the puppy in any way; or does not follow proper animal husbandry practices. A signed (by your licensed veterinarian and new owner) and dated copy of your health guarantee must be returned to Pine Cone Kennels to enforce your guarantee within 10 days after adoption. The new owner and their licensed veterinarian must sign and date the guarantee within the three day time frame of delivery of puppy in order for the guarantee to be valid, failure to do so will void this guarantee.  It is the responsibility of the buyer to provide a safe and healthy environment for the puppy.

Our puppies are sold as Pet Quality puppies. We do not guarantee adult size, color, temperament, or ability to sire or whelp puppies. We will not guarantee against human error. Buyer’s deposit is non-refundable in the event that the Buyer chooses not to take the puppy for any reason.

You have been provided with a complete vaccination record with the additional records that came with your puppy. Please submit the vaccination record to your veterinarian in order for them to determine an immunization and de-worming schedule appropriate for your puppy.

Please do not take your puppy into public places unless absolutely necessary, until the puppy has had all vaccinations as recommended by your veterinarian to insure immunity against disease. Please limit “play time” with young children while puppy is small. It is still a baby, needing it’s rest and not over stressed.

We sincerely appreciate your adoption of one of our puppies and welcome you into our “extended family”. Please keep in touch, we enjoy our puppies and love to hear of the accomplishments and adventures they and their new families have. E-mail us anytime to update at cgevans@wildblue.net. Once more, thank you and we hope to hear from you again soon!
