Registered AKC Color-bred Red Poodles  

Our Health Guarantee

This agreement is made for the benefit and protection of BOTH the buyer and the seller and to guarantee that you received a healthy puppy upon purchase. This guarantee is non-transferable and will not be honored if this dog is sold or otherwise transferred unless transferred through Patriot Poodles.

  • For your Health Guarantee to be in effect, you will need to take your puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 3 days of purchase for a well-puppy check-up.  Sundays and holidays are not counted because veterinarian offices are not usually open for business on these days.  We realize that 3 days is a short time period, but we prefer that the puppy be checked as soon as possible before families develop a strong bonding to their new baby.
  • If within 3 days your puppy is diagnosed with a life threatening health problem such as heart, liver, or kidney, the puppy can be returned for a full refund (purchase price of the puppy) plus reimbursement for the actual cost of the well-puppy check-up.  If your puppy was shipped to you, we will also refund 100% of the actual cost of the airfare plus pay for the cost of the puppy’s return airfare.
  • If within three years from the date of sale, this puppy is diagnosed by a licensed veterinarian (second opinion may be requested) with a genetic health defect that causes death or is life threatening, this puppy will be replaced with another puppy of equal value as soon as one is available. In order to exercise such replacement option, purchaser must meet the following conditions, buyer must submit from a licensed veterinarian within three years from date of purchase; 
  • - A medical report stating that a severe health problem attributed to a genetic defect exists, or proof of death resulting from a genetic problem.
    - Puppy must be either returned to the seller along with all registration papers or if purchaser desires to keep the puppy, then the puppy must be spayed or neutered at purchasers expense and purchaser must submit proof of altering to seller.
    - This guarantee is non transferable and will not be honored if this dog is sold or otherwise transferred unless transferred through Patriot Poodles.
  • Buyer understands that the following slight genetic defects are not considered serious or life threatening and therefore are not covered: umbilical hernias, un-descended testicle, or underbite or overbite. Also, due to environmental factors beyond our control, variations of diet and exercise, and differences of veterinary opinions, we will cover luxating patellaes only upon the opionion of an agreed specialist and they make the determination within three years of date of purchase.
  • Physical injuries occurring outside of my custody are not warranted under any condition.
  • If the puppy dies within the first 3 days of purchase, buyer must have an autopsy performed to determine the cause of death.  The purpose of the autopsy is to verify that the puppy did not die due to injury, accident, or an illness that was caused by the buyer.  A copy of the report must be forwarded to the seller before determining if a refund will be provided.
  • Under no circumstance or condition will I assume liability for any surgery or medical procedure unless said surgery or medical procedure is performed only after consultation with my veterinarian and myself.  Should surgery be required and agreed to by the consulting veterinarians, Patriot Poodles will pay half of the surgery cost up to one half of the purchase price of the puppy, excluding shipping.
  • If you are purchasing this puppy for the purpose of breeding, we do not guarantee the breeding potential of any puppy.  We encourage you to spay or neuter your pets!

To return your puppy you must:

  • Provide a signed statement from your veterinarian showing the date, within the 3 day period, on which he conducted his examination and the reason why he believes the puppy has a life threatening health problem that existed prior to you receiving the puppy.
  • If buyer chooses to keep the puppy, regardless of any health issue, seller will not issue a refund for the cost of the puppy or for any other expense, including airfare, or veterinarian expenses.
  • If another puppy is available, the buyer can choose a replacement puppy.  A replacement puppy is not a requirement; it is only an option for the buyer to consider.  If buyer chooses a replacement puppy that has a value greater than the original puppy’s purchase price, buyer is responsible for the difference in cost.

Items not covered by your Health Guarantee:

  • Worms & Parasites: including Coccidia and Giardia, are common in young puppies.  All puppies are dewormed at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks old, but additional treatment may be necessary.  We recommend that you bring a stool sample from your puppy to his/her well-puppy check-up.
  • Hypoglycemia: Low blood sugar is 100% preventable. 
  • Umbilical Hernias: These are common in puppies and usually disappear by 6 months of age.  They develop when the umbilical cord is cut too close to the abdomen.
  • Non-life threatening health issues.

***Stable Homes Only Please***

Purchasing a puppy is a lifetime commitment and we wish stable and permanent homes for all of our puppies.  We understand circumstances can change even for the most well meaning people. PLEASE contact us and let us help you to find the puppy a good home. Patriot Poodles is always willing to take back the pup/dog, without refund and shipping cost, for the life of the dog!  We do not rehome our kids.
