A two year after sale Replacement Warranty is given for any congenital disease not common to the brachycephalic breeds that caused your puppy to expire. A notarized Veterinarian report with findings stating, to a medical certainty (Full Autopsy), that the death was in fact caused from the prenatal state will be required. Buyers will be required to send the notarized Vet's report along with all of the puppy's medical records. Seller will then give buyer a replacement puppy of equal value and the same gender, from the next available litter.
Replacement Warranty will be terminated if puppy was found to be abused, neglected or does not have up to date records of vaccinations and fecal records. As of the date of delivery, the puppy has received proper vaccinations and de-worming. Buyer has been informed of these. This warranty does not cover diseases for which vaccinations could prevent. Puppy needs to be seen by a veterinarian within 48 hours of receipt for warranty to be valid. Documentation will need to be provided.
This guarantee does not include coccidia, giardia and kennel cough, which is usually casued by bacteria and is common in puppies that are shipped. Kennel cough is self limiting and like the common cold must run its course. Full recovery is expected, and on its own, kennel cough is not life-threatening. This guarantee does not cover what in the Shih Tzu breed is considered normal: Cherry eye, stenotic nares, under bite and umbilical hernias etc.
The seller will assume no shipping costs associated with sale or Replacement Warranty. The seller assumes no responsibility for medical expenses, mortality, landlord's disapproval, allergy or any other undesirable circumstannces once the dog has left the seller's premises.

Seller cannot guarantee the fertility of a male or a female puppy at maturity and it is impossible to guarantee breeding success, show success or house training. It is the buyer's sole responsibility for bills incurred from breeding this dog.
The size a puppy will grow to as an adult is only an estimate based on seller's experience and traits recongnition. No guarantees are made as to adult size. The seller does not guarantee the color of said dog. Because the breed is normally double-coated, their color may become lighter or darker as they age and grow and will almost always be lighter if the dog is shaved down, as the undercoat is lighter.
Hernia's must be certified by a veterinarian to be currently life threatening and to have rendered the puppy unfit for purchas, in order for surgical repair reimbursement consideration
