Castle Longshanks Warranty


1. Health: Castle Longshanks warranties that your puppy is in good health at delivery. You will receive a Health Certificate from our veterinarian with a record of worming and vaccinations.

2. Parasites: Castle Longshanks guarantees the puppy to be free of parasites at the time of pick up. We do not guarantee they will remain parasite free as it is possible they can be re infested from change in food and/or the stress of relocating. This is normal for new puppies and you may need to continue with a de-worming program recommended by your veterinarian.

3. 48 Hour Warranty: Buyer has 48 normal business hours, excluding weekends and holidays, to have their puppy examined by a Licensed Veterinarian. If the veterinarian certifies that, at the time of sale, the puppy was unfit for purchase due to a congenital or hereditary disorder, the buyer has two options: a) Buyer may return the puppy and receive a full refund, excluding the Veterinary costs incurred by the buyer related to the certification that the puppy was unfit. b) Buyer may return the puppy and receive an exchange if one is available, but not refunded for the Veterinary costs related to the certification that the puppy was unfit.

Buyer must notify Castle Longshanks within 2 business days after the veterinarian’s determination that the animal is unfit. The written certification from the veterinarian stating the puppy is unfit must be presented to Castle Longshanks not later than 3 business days following receipt thereof by the buyer.

4. The puppy may not be determined unfit for sale on account of an injury sustained or illness contracted after it leaves our facility. Intestinal or external parasites is not grounds for declaring the puppy unfit for sale. This condition is treatable.
