Seller certifies that said puppy is in good health to the best of Seller's knowledge. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. Seller has no obligation to reimburse Buyer for any costs incurred from medical, shipping, crate ect. Seller does not guarantee against conditions brought on by stress or environmental changes that we can not control once the puppy leaves our care, therefore our guarantee does not cover, hypoglycemia, parasites, giardia, distemper or corona virus because these are highly contagious diseases that can be contracted immediately upon leaving our property. We do guarantee that we do not have these diseases in our kennel and our dogs are free from these diseases. We go to great lengths to keep our kennels clean and disease free. Seller makes no guarantee as to puppy's fertility or breeding abilities, but does guarantee the dog free of breeding related diseases at the time of sale.

The Buyer agrees to maintain preventative health care of puppy including, but not limited to : inoculations, internal as well as external parasites, heart worm preventative medication. If the puppy is not kept current on preventative health care then the terms of this contract regarding any health guarantee is Void.

Buyer agrees to provide Seller with pictures and updates on said puppy/dog at least twice ( 2 times )yearly. Please keep us posted on them !!!

Big Paws Kennel gaurantees the health of the puppies for 2 years after the date of birth.  If the puppy is diagnosed with a life threatening congenital disorder Big Paws Kennel wil replace the puppy with one of equal value at such time when one becomes available. For owner to receive replacement puppy, the sick puppy must be returned to Big Paws Kennel at owner's expense accompanied by AKC papers and a written vet statement describing the health condition, unless other arrangements have been agreed to. This health guarantee does not include common conditions such as entropion, skin allergies, parasites, baacterial or viral infections. We do guarantee against Parvo coming from our kennels. It if can be proven that it came from our kennel. At which time it would be very easy to prove as the other puppies in that litter and all of our dogs would have parvo as it is highly contagious.
If the puppy dies, a replacement puppy will be offered provided the owner sends Big Paws Kennel a veterinarian's autopsy report stating a congential defect caused the death.

Big Paws Kennel is not responsible for vet fees and or costs to diagnosis or treat any condition, owner acknowledges that puppy ownership involves vet bills and fees, as well as many other costs involved in the well being of their puppy. We never pay vet bills for any reason. In order for  health guarantee to become valid owner must take the puppy to a veterinarian within 3 business days of receiving puppy. New owner must mail
a healthy puppy report or statement to Big Paws Kennel. For health guarantee to remain valid, new owner must keep puppy up to date on vaccinations including but not limited to rabies, parvo and distemper. We highly recommend having your  puppy microchipped in case it is ever lost or stolen. Health guarantee is not transferable. Health gurarantee is voided if puppy is sold, transfered or given away unless previously discussed and agreed upon in writing with Big Paws Kennel.

This guarantee does not cover if the puppy is injured by accident, neglect, abuse or if problems arise as a result of breeding. Owner also agrees to provide the puppy with preventative care, including but not limited to dewormings, vaccines, heartworm treatment and annual vet checkups.
Owner also agrees to provide puppy with adequate living conditions and a healthy diet. Owner agrees not to chain dog for long periods of time.

All of our puppies are sold on full AKC registration unless otherwise stated. We believe you have paid for this puppy, so you have the right to show or breed it. But, if you do not have plans on showing or breeding your new puppy, we very strongly encourage you to spay or neuter it. There are way too many unwanted dogs in the world now, and you could just be extending the life of your new compainion by spaying or neutering it as this does cut down on some cancers.

Big Paws Kennel has breeding rights on  all males sold  on full registration for  up to 3 breedings. ( rarely is this used )

If for any reason you can no longer keep your dog at any time, we will always open our home  and kennel to welcome it back. Never turn the dog over to an animal shelter or rescue, we are always her for you and that includes taking the dog back.

We highly recomend Not using Oral Flea medicene as there have been some problems reported with these products in bully breeds.

This agreement is binding upon parties hereto, their successors and assigns, and shall be governed in accordance with the laws of the state of Iowa. Any legal actions or disputes will be resolved in the county of Scott, Iowa. This is the final agreement.

By signing the health gurantee you accept all terms and conditions of this contract.

In the event you buy one of our puppies on line and have it shipped, your deposit serves as signature. You will receive a signed copy of this contract with delivery of your puppy.

The first two words on all AKC papers will be " Big Paws".
