Much Ado About Doodles Agrees:

  • Much Ado About Doodles guarantees that puppy had proper care to date and was checked by a veterinarian. Shot records will be furnished at time of purchase.
  • Much Ado About Doodles guarantees puppy against any congenital defect causing death of or making necessary euthanasia until 12 months of age. If this occurs then Much Ado About Doodles will replace the puppy (minus training fees, if applicable) from available upcoming puppies. Much Ado About Doodles will not assume any veterinarian bills.
  • If within seven days of receiving the puppy, he/she is examined by a licensed veterinarian and the health of the puppy is found to be at serious risk of euthanasia or death due to a genetic defect, buyer shall notify Much Ado About Doodles with a written statement from the licensed vet describing puppy’s condition. Much Ado About Doodles will replace puppy from available upcoming puppies.
  • This guarantee does not protect against dental issues, worms, fleas, mites, coccidiosis, giardia, or any other parasites, as they are common in dogs and puppies.
  • Much Ado About Doodles is not responsible if puppy contracts a communicable disease after leaving Much Ado About Doodles possession.
  • Much Ado About Doodles has the right to seek a second opinion from a licensed veterinarian. Both Veterinarians must agree on the diagnosis for a refund or replacement to be issued.
  • Much Ado About Doodles reserves the right to acquire DNA to determine the dog or puppy as one of Much Ado About Doodles lineages.
  • Much Ado About Doodles offers 12 month hip guarantee on any puppy found to have moderate or severely affected hip dysplasia. The following applies:
  • The puppy must have an x-ray by buyer’s veterinarian, a copy of which must be mailed to Much Ado About Doodles veterinarian for a confirming diagnosis.
  • Because up to 80% of cases of dysplasia can be attributed to environmental causes, and the puppy’s parents were chosen from dysplasia-free lines, Buyer’s veterinarian must sign that the dog has not been overfed for its height/structure, was not raised on slippery floors or excessively exercised, has received adequate nutrition from a quality food with proper protein/calcium ratios, and that the x-ray was not taken during the female’s heat (which can cause additional sublaxity). Assuming all of the above is upheld, if there is still the possibility of genetic cause, the Much Ado About Doodles will refund 50% of the purchase price.
  • A Hip or Elbow Dysplasia diagnosis must be documented and confirmed by an official OFA consultation. (OFA consultations can not be done until the dog is of 24 months of age or more. Therefore to complete this requirement the Much Ado About Doodles will give a 13 month extension for an OFA consultation. Buyer’s vet’s diagnosis will still need to take place when the dog is less than a year old since this is only a one year guarantee, but Buyer may wait to get the corroborating OFA papers until the dog is 24 months old. No refund will be given until after the OFA corroborates a moderate or severe dysplasia diagnosis.)
  • Much Ado About Doodles offers a 12 month heart guarantee on any puppy found to have a severe heart murmur (Grade 5/6 or 6/6). The following applies: The puppy must have a canine cardiologist perform an echogram to confirm the diagnosis. If this occurs then buyer can choose to return puppy for a full refund, or keep the puppy and get a 50% refund of purchase price.
  • Much Ado About Doodles does not guarantee color, size, training or temperament of any puppy.
  • Much Ado About Doodles does promise to begin crate training your puppy and to provide information needed to continue training, though much of training success is based on the buyer following advice.

  • We strongly recommended buyer to continue to give puppy 1 NuVet Plus wafer each day which is a powerful antioxidant that gives a tremendous boost to the immune system to prevent skin and coat problems, and creates a defense against over fifty major diseases, including hip and elbow dysplasia, and extending the lifespan of your dog. Also giving your pup 1 NuJoint everyday is critical in helping prevent hip and elbow dysplasia as it contains MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), Glucosamine, and Chondroitin. NuJoint DS also includes Vitamin C (Ester-C) which is required for the synthesis of collagen (a component of joint cartilage), and it can also reduce free radical damage to cartilage.
