The spay/neuter clause in this contract remains in effect if ownership of this dog is to be transferred.
The Seller CANNOT guarantee the size of your puppy. Sizes in Aussies can vary, and parental size does not guarantee adult size of puppies.

One Year Health Guarantee:
It is very important that puppies be vet-checked by Buyer within 72 hours of purchase. If puppy is not vet checked within 72 hours of purchase the one year warranty against genetic defects is VOID. In the event of illness within 72 hours after the puppy leaves the possession of the Seller the Buyer will receive a refund of the full purchase price, providing the Buyer returns the dog back alive, with vet papers to the Seller. We do not pay vet bills under any circumstances.
Seller warranties this puppy free from "genetic defects" such as deafness, serious eye defects or hip dysplasia , that would inhibit the puppy from performing as a companion animal up until the dog is twelve months of age. After twelve months of age the guarantee is void. If puppy is affected by genetic defect before twelve months of age buyer must provide copies of ALL medical findings to Andrew's Aussies. Andrew's Aussies reserves the right to have the puppy examined by their local veterinarian. Buyer has the option to: Keep the puppy in question and receive 1/2 of the purchase price back OR return puppy in question and receive a puppy of equal value when they become available.

Minor health related issues such as parasites, diarrhea, coccidiosis etc. are not covered under the health guarantee. Though the Seller has taken every precaution to prevent these issues they are common in puppies, and can be brought about due to the stress of entering a new environment.
The Seller is not responsible to pay ANY vet bills during the life of the said dog.
