Our Health Guarantee

Our Guarantee is quite simple. We send you a puppy who has been examined three times by our vet (birth, 6 weeks, just before delivery to new home) and require that you have the puppy examined by your licensed veterinarian within (3) three days of purchase. If, in the opinion of your veterinarian, the puppy has any physical problems considered to be life threatening, we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price of the puppy less the non-refundable deposit & shipping. To make a claim and receive a refund you must return your puppy to the us within 7 days of purchase at the your expense. You must also, provide a signed statement from your veterinarian providing date of examination and an explanation as to diagnosis and prognosis. The statement must include a description of the symptoms and a copy of the tests supporting the opinion.

All puppies come with a health certificate from my veterinarian stating that they are healthy, wormed, and vaccinated as of the shipping date. We require the immediate exam from your vet to ensure well defined health status as the puppy transitions from our home to yours.

Note: PLEASE PRINT AND REVIEW our health guarantee with your veterinarian before you make a final decision to purchase. You may also want to look at other guarantees on the web from other bulldog breeders. We take great care to deliver a sound and healthy puppy to you - we want you to ensure that you understand and feel comfortable with us and our guarantee.

The conditions listed below are not included in our guarantee as there are many variables which influence these conditions other than genetics or heredity. Additionally there is no guarantee against buyer neglect or abuse. A determination of neglect or abuse on the part of the buyer voids all warranties. Not covered: Hypoglycemia, allergies (skin or otherwise), cocidiosis, hip or joint problems, parasites, cherry eye, viral or bacterial infections.

Our English Bulldog puppies come with a 6 month limited guarantee. Should the puppy die of a birth defect within six months of the date of birth, we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price of the puppy less the non-refundable deposit. To qualify for this guarantee, you must have kept the puppy under the care of a licensed veterinarian. This care must include all vaccinations, preventative health care, and treatment for any routine condition(s) recommended by your veterinarian or deemed reasonable and standard care. To make a claim, you must bring a signed certificate from your veterinarian stating the cause of death plus a copy of ALL the health records.

General Terms and Conditions:
