This puppy/dog will reside with the Buyer as a companion pet to the Buyer and Buyer’s family. Buyer will keep the puppy/dog as an indoor pet.

Buyer will provide adequate feeding and nutrition, provide a safe and healthy environment, keep the puppy/dog in proper health and condition, provide proper shelter, a crate of correct size, and exercise the puppy/dog daily.
Please Note: The Seller requires that you keep your puppy away from all other animals until all vaccination series have been completed. This includes public areas where other dogs frequent. Do not take this puppy on walks around a public neighborhood, dog parks, pet store (unless you carry the puppy and do not place him/her on the floor) etc. DO NOT stop at rest areas on your travels, restaurants, or other public areas for your puppy to have a potty or play break. Please carry your puppy into their vet visits as the vet frequently has sick animals walking the facility. This is to prevent spread of illness/disease to your new puppy. Keep your puppy safe, happy, and healthy!

Buyer must contact Home Again and have their database updated with their personal information within 30 days from the pick-up date of their new puppy/dog. (This is for the safety of your new puppy) Failure to complete registration and microchip transfer will completely void this guarantee.
This puppy/dog is guaranteed healthy when he/she leaves the property of Mountain High Kennels. A licensed veterinarian has inspected said puppy and found he/she is healthy and sound and that he/she is not showing any signs of infectious, contagious, and/or communicable diseases. The Buyer has 72 hours from date of pick up to have a licensed vet of their choosing check the puppy/dog and confirm the health. If such licensed veterinarian finds the puppy is harboring an infectious, contagious, or communicable disease and proves such disease was present at time of sale, Buyer may return said puppy in good, physical condition to the Seller for a full refund. Buyer must supply the Seller with the official report from their licensed veterinarian providing exact diagnosis, symptoms upon checking puppy/dog, and must have scanned the microchip at time of health check. Microchip number and signature of the veterinarian must be present on any document supplied to the Seller to obtain a refund. Puppy/dog MUST be returned to the Seller within 48 hours of such diagnosis or this guarantee is void. ALL medical bills for exam, transportation, etc. are the SOLE responsibility of the Buyer.
Seller guarantees that the Sire and Dam of this litter have been genetically health tested for VWD3 (Von Willebrand’s Disease), CEA (Collie Eye Anomaly), DM (Degenerative Myelopathy), and MDR1 (Multi-Drug Resistance). The Seller guarantees that the puppy/dog is an offspring to both clear/negative dogs and that the puppy/dog being purchased is free of such diseases also. If the puppy is found and tested to be a carrier and is negatively affected by such disease in the first 2 years of life, the puppy/dog will be replaced with another puppy/dog of same sex/quality from the next available litter. The Seller will only accept results from Animal Genetics, any documents pertaining to the above diseases must reference the microchip number of the puppy/dog and must be sent to the Seller immediately following results.

Such refund will be issued within 30 days of return of the puppy/dog. Buyer must provide any/all vet documentation for the puppy/dog and the puppy/dog must be current on heartworm prevention and all vaccinations including rabies. Failure to provide proper veterinary care and/or provide proper registration documents will result in the Seller voiding a refund of the purchase price for the puppy/dog. If the Seller is unable to resume ownership, the Seller will gladly help the Buyer find an appropriate home for the puppy/dog. Failure to give first right of refusal to the Seller will result in the Buyer remitting immediate payment for breach of contract in the amount of $1000.00 (one thousand dollars).
