Should Purchaser decide to relinquish ownership of the dog/bitch during it's life for any reason other than those directed by law, Purchaser agrees to return the animal as fast as possible, by the safest means possible that will not endanger the life, well-being, or welfare of the dog/bitch. All costs incurred as well as any expense resulting from medical treatment, reconditioning, or socialization will be the responsibility of the Purchaser. This dog/bitch may not be sold or in any means ownership relinquished to another party unless agreed upon in writing by the Seller.

This dog/bitch has a 48 hour health guarantee if Buyer is local, 72 hours if Buyer is out of state. If any medical condition  is found by a licensed veterinarian in that time frame, dog/bitch may be returned to Seller for a full refund if accompanied by a full written statement from said veterinarian. If the animal is returned for any other reason than failure to pass"vet approval" then one third (1/3) the purchase price will be retained by the Seller for health and advertising reasons. Further,this dog/bitch is guaranteed for life against any life threatening genetic defect specifically liver shunt or leggs perthes.

Seller agrees to pay medical bills up to the amount of the purchase price.

Under no circumstances is Seller to be held responsible for veterinary services not authorized by Seller. Buyer must have an autopsy performed by Seller's Veterinarian or a veterinarian of Sellers choice within 24 hours of death.

1. PET QUALITY is a quality classification set by the breeder indicating that in the breeder's opinion the animal does not conform close enough to the breed standard to allow it to be used for breeding or to be shown in AKC sanctioned dog shows.

2. LIMITED REGISTRATION allows registration with the American Kennel Club (AKC) but with certain restrictions. The registration certifies that the animal is a purebred Yorkshire Terrier, but does not allow competition in AKC licensed conformation shows. Offspring resulting from this animal are not allowed to be registered with AKC.

3. ALTERING is a surgery done by a veterinarian that renders the animal unable to produce offspring.

4. GENETIC DEFECT any condition which is widely held by the veterinary profession to be hereditary in nature. Exceptions are patellar luxation or tracheal collapse because of environmental issues.
