Health and Hip Guarantees
We guarantee that the above dog/ puppy is a purebred and is able to be registered with AKC. Dog / puppy is being purchased by buyer in good health, free of communicable diseases and comes with up to date vaccinations and worming’s. If dog is to be shipped, it will have had a thorough vet exam and comes with current State of Florida Health Certificate. Buyer has 48 hours from final delivery of pup to certify such health by certified DVM. Any and all charges incurred at vet exam & resulting care recommended by buyer’s vet and approved by buyer are the sole responsibility of buyer. We recommend buyers have pre-arranged health check appointment with their vet of choice in order to comply with the 48 hour health certification. This guarantee is no longer in effect after the puppy has been in his/her new home more than 48 hours, as we have no control over his/her new environment. “NO VET CHECK” relieves us of any and all health claims. If a serious health problem is uncovered at 48 hr vet check, a written statement must be provided to seller by attending veterinarian, and pup may be returned to seller at buyer’s expense for exchange. If no pup from same litter is available another pup will be provided of equal value at breeder’s option when one becomes available. If it is determined that the health of the puppy has been affected detrimentally by his/ her new environment, this guarantee will be null and void. If any dog that is subject to this contract is bred or becomes pregnant prior to 2 years of age and dose not have a passing hip and elbow rating, this contract becomes NULL AND VOID. Reproductive capability is not a guarantee. We do not guarantee EARS TO STAND, DENTITION, MEGE ESOPHAGUS, OR MALE TESTICLES TO DECEND. Umbilical hernias are considered a common occurrence in puppies & we do not guarantee the pups to be free of one. We do not guarantee against Panosteitis, as this most often is the result of a nutritionally related accelerated growth phase seen in large breeds and which they outgrow without adverse effects.
Conditions brought on by stress of shipping, delivery, the stress of being placed in a new home, switched food or environmental conditions, such as kennel cough, coccidia, giardia, allergies and demodectic mange are not covered in this contract.
These conditions should be monitored by your vet and treated accordingly. We do not guarantee the temperament of any dog simply because we have no control over his / her living conditions or environment outside of our own facility. Many factors such as poor training, inconsistency, lack of socialization, neglect and abuse etc. play a negative roll in the development of any dog.
Buyer understands that this breed requires early socialization, training and exposer from day one through the rest of the dog’s natural life. The buyer understands that this breed can become aggressive, fearful, anxious, hypertensive, uncontrollable and more if not trained or handled properly. A examination from a veterinarian must state that a serious genetic defect exists and be accompanied by x-rays and other testing as appropriate. We are not responsible for the vet bill. Puppies that become sick or die due to an accident or buyers negligence (chewing electrical cords, hung by collar, heat stroke, exposing the puppy to strange dogs before fully vaccinated, etc.) will not be replaced.
Dogs are guaranteed to be free of crippling genetic hip dysplasia and to certify by 26 months with rating of OFA fair or better or SV equivalent. We only guarantee genetic hip dysplasia. Environmentally-induced dysplasia from dog being overweight, heavy exercise, jumping, harsh training, injury, abuse, improper nutrition, or debilitating illness etc. hips are NOT guaranteed. A OFA/ SV document with Veterinary certification of said diagnosis is required by seller before replacement can be made. All hip x-rays must be done by a certified DVM and must be sent to OFA or SV for evaluation as stated in hip contract. If dogs are over exercised, fed nutritionally inadequate unbalanced diets resulting in poor health and condition and / or are bred before 2 yrs or before obtaining a hip evaluation and breedable hip/elbow certification, this contract is VOID and if bred before hips are x-rayed/ rated, constitutes misuse of dog.
If ownership of dog is sold or transferred, Guarantee and Registration upgrade is non transferable and is VOIDED. If dog fails to receive OFA hip rating of fair or better or breedable rating, seller requires a written diagnosis of such rating from the submitting veterinarian and OFA / SV and requires films and all documentation be sent to seller and/or seller's DVM for evaluation. Documentation proof of acceptable food as described in our feeding informational and provided to said dog may be required. If buyer chooses to keep the dog, proof of spay or neuter will be required before a replacement animal will be awarded, after which a replacement dog of equal value PAID will be awarded provided all terms have been satisfied, to be awarded only as soon as one becomes available and shall be of the breeder’s choosing.

It is crucial to be very familiar with their heat cycles. Keep a log/ record of their cycles, dates and lengths. If they are due to come into heat around the same time frame that you are planning to do her x-rays, be very cautious, you must delay taking the x-rays for 6-8 weeks following the end of their heat cycles. Under no circumstances should a female be x-rayed when she is in heat. Additionally,
hip films must not be taken 6-8 weeks either before or after the impending/current heat cycle. When a female comes into heat, the fluctuation of hormone levels within her body causes her ligaments, tendons, and joints to loosen and become lax. This is a normal preparation for the body should the bitch become pregnant. It is not a good time to do X-Rays as it can, and has, changed the
outcome of the rating for the dogs hips. Owners who take films while female is in heat, or whose female comes into heat immediately following the films, and which result in a negative hip rating, will be required to have hip films retaken in 8 weeks from the end of the heat cycle.
Spaying and Neutering
• Male puppies should wait until 24 months (2 years) of age.
• Female puppies should not be spayed before their first heat if possible. Their first heat generally starts around 6-9 months old and last for 21 days. However, we recommend waiting until the puppies are at least 2 years of age before spaying.
• If the puppy is fixed before the recommend age the buyer will lose the rights of return or replacement value for any health issues after the puppy is spayed/ neutered and will lose any guarantee coverage and no replacement dog will be offered. Unless for certain health reason and a Licensed Veterinarian would have to explain in writing.
Terms of Replacement
Buyer having met all terms and requirements above and In the event a puppy is proven to be dysplastic, Under NO circumstance is the dog to be sold, placed or euthanized without obtaining PRIOR express written permission by Windstarke K9. Should any of the events mentioned above in fact occur and a replacement dog becomes necessary, the Buyer is required to spay or neuter the animal and provide proof of such to us. Buyer may keep the dog, with a new pup of our choice awarded to buyer. Seller allowing purchase credit of 50% of original dogs purchase price paid, toward a new puppy. Airfare and related Veterinary fees are additional and at buyer expense.This option will be awarded on a one time basis, when a pup of equivalent value and of breeder's choosing & approval becomes available.
