We take lifelong responsibility for each puppy born here and have adopted certain requirements we ask of our buyers. You will be agreeing to do the following in our contract. Some items may sound restrictive but are only designed to protect every precious life we bring into this world and there are good reasons for each. Please be sure to ask for an explanation if you have a question on any of these requirements so we can be on the same page and have the opportunity to explain our position.
As explained on the Boxer Health Page, the traditional methods of pet care are not always best for our pets . After exhaustive research proved our belief that something was very wrong with the normal protocol, we took steps to try to mitigate some of those risks. A wide array of Health Testing, Proper Nutrition from before the womb to weaning, and Protection from Environmental and Pharmaceutical risks have been implemented in our program. Though none of these steps can ever be a 100% guarantee there won’t be a rogue health issue crop up in a pup due the un-predictability of Mother Nature, we do offer a 2 year Heath Guarantee. However, we base that guarantee on the things we hope we have done right, and on the assumption that families follow our lead in mitigating risks going forward. We cannot be responsible for that guarantee if the puppy is exposed to excessive environmental, nutritional and pharmaceutical risks beyond our control. So, you as the new and forever parent and protector of these precious lives must do your part or it is all in vain.
So, in our contract you will be expected to adhere to a few things as follows :
Spay/Neuter – required to wait until AT LEAST 12- 18 months, preferably age 2-3.
