end, we guarantee the puppy/dog you are acquiring to be free from any defects
as mentioned above at the time of delivery. Should a problem arise in the future, please contact us
immediately! It is important for us to know if any problems do arise so that
we may be aware of this in planning any future breedings. Compensation
