Snowbound Health Guarantee . Please read prior to contacting us.
All Snowbound babies under one year of age comes with a lifetime health guarantee against all life threatening genetic defects as long as Snowbound Schnauzers is still in the breeding business. This does not include careless or accidental injury or death to the puppy. Breeder ask if new family does not work, they are to bring the schnauzer back, and the breeder will find a new home, this protects the puppy and they can still receive this health guarantee. There are no refunds on puppy unless they are under the age of 8 months old, as it takes much longer to place a older dog and it cost Snowbound Schnauzer extra expenses while in our care. If refund is giving it will be minus what it cost us to treat, groom, train, and feed while in our care. At any time Snowbound Schnauzers has a right to refuse a sell and will return the deposit within 30 days of refusal if a deposit was sent in.
I do not guarantee any Snowbound schnauzer that has been given leptospirosis or has been DEBARKED (vocal cords cut).
If your dog is found to have a serious life threatening genetic defect, return him to us (at buyer’s expense) with: the registration papers, vet records showing where dog has had regular vet care and inoculations, along with a written explanation from a licensed vet stating defect, and he will be replaced at no charge as soon as another pup of the same gender and value is available. Any vet bills incurred to diagnose or repair a problem will be the responsibility of the buyer. Note: owner does have option on keeping the schnauzer and getting another one, however we will not pay for the care of the schnauzer and you do have to provide the schnauzer at the time so our vet can check his health prior to getting another schnauzer.
Updated Jan. 2011, If any of our Snowbound schnauzers were seen in the vet for poison or showing signs of eating something poison or written they got into something, We will void the contract .Pet owners need to be more careful and make sure when their pets are outside unattended that there are not any known toxic plants or food left out. If any puppy receives their rabie shots prior to 16 weeks old will also VOID this contract. Please understand the reaction that shots have on animals, we here at Snowbound will NOT GUARANTEE ANY SNOWBOUND SCHNAUZER THAT WAS GIVEN LEPTOSPIROSIS. The pet owner understands that she/he is in control of what shots are given.
We are also requesting for a necropsy to be done before we replace any puppy. If necropsy is not done we will void the contract. All medical records from the time you received the puppy needs to be turned over to us at the time of the puppy death, this includes X-Rays, MRIs, sonograms etc.
Policy on Pickup day. If puppy is not picked up on dates listed there is a $ 10.00 per day plus half down on regular pick up time. The remaining balance due when you arrive. If the puppy is due for shots during our boarding that will be added at the time of pickup. No refunds are ever given on deposits, and only a replacement puppy if something should happen to your puppy.
Should this puppy be falsely identified as spayed/neutered, and then bred or registered under another registry (ANY other registry other than AKC.), buyer agrees to pay the seller for the full registration price of $3,500, and also agrees to surrender the AKC papers as well as the dog. I, the buyer, agree to willingly surrender and deliver (whether by flight or in person) the above stated dog to Snowbound Schnauzers should I falsely identify this dog as altered or register this dog under any other registration. If litigation is necessary to enforce any of the provisions of this agreement, it must be resolved in sellers venue (Madison County, Kentucky). The prevailing party shall be entitled to all reasonable attorney fees. _________ <date and initial.
This guarantee is valid only to the original owner and void if resold or given away.
All dogs sold are sold as “pet quality” and are not guaranteed for showing or breeding.
All dogs are sold with Limited AKC registration and has to be neutered or spayed at 7 months old, unless stated by breeder or this guarantee is void. NO PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED/NEUTERED PRIOR TO 7 MONTHS OLD.AKC registration will be provided once the said puppy turns 7 months old and proof of spay/neuter has been provided to the breeder. Spaying or neutering your puppy has nothing to do with your AKC papers so please do not confuse AKC registration with your LIFETIME health guarantee. We void this guarantee if your schnauzer is not up to date on shots and very overweight, since overweight animals have health issues.
We do not guarantee size.
