State of North Carolina Rules and Regulations govern all warranties and guarantees.

Puppies sold by Sugar and Spice Cockapoos LLC (Seller) are honestly represented and evaluated as accurately as possible by Seller. Sugar and Spice Cockapoos LLC is selling this puppy as a pet and in no way guarantees breeding capabilities. This puppy is being sold as a pet, without breeding rights. We require that your puppy be spayed or neutered by a veterinarian of your choice by 6 months of age. Seller cannot guarantee adult size, color, or temperament of the puppy.

The above-described puppy is guaranteed to be in good health at the time of the sale. In order to verify the good health of the puppy, Buyer must take the puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of receipt of puppy. However, if you feel that your puppy is sick, take the puppy to the vet immediately. It is very important that the puppy eats and drinks as soon as possible after you receive it. If your puppy is too stressed to eat for a period of more than 24 hours, take him or her to a veterinarian. Seller will not replace a puppy that dies because Buyer waited too long to get medical help for the puppy.

If an examination by a licensed veterinarian reveals that the puppy is medically unsound so as to warrant returning puppy to Seller, Buyer must notify Seller within 72 hours of the receipt of the puppy. The veterinarian must furnish a hand-written report describing the problem, and the puppy must be returned immediately if Buyer is to receive a replacement for said puppy. Seller will not replace your puppy for common puppy problems, such as fleas, ticks, lice, coccidia, giardia, intestinal parasites, ear mites, or other such parasites, or other stress-induced problems such as hypoglycemia and kennel cough. Seller will not pay any vet bills incurred by Buyer for any reason.

Said puppy is guaranteed to be free of life-threatening congenital defects until he or she is one year of age--this will be extended to two years of age if NuVet supplemental vitamin is used during this entire time. Should the puppy be diagnosed with a congenital disorder within that time period, Seller will replace the puppy with another puppy of the same sex and similar coloring as soon as one becomes available. However, in order for Seller to be required to replace the puppy, two unassociated veterinarians must examine the puppy and determine that the quality of life will be seriously impacted and recommend euthanasia, or require continuous medical treatment throughout the puppy's life. Upon Buyer showing hand-written proof of above-described congenital disorder, Seller will make restitution as described above (replace puppy). Please call Seller for advice. In the unlikely event of the death of the puppy, laboratory confirmation of cause of death will be required.

Seller shall not assume liability for veterinarian expenses. Buyer understands that all guarantees expire one year from the date of purchase, or two years if NuVet supplement is used during that entire time.

Buyer understands that the following slight genetic defects are not considered serious or life threatening and therefore are not covered: umbilical hernia, un-descended testicle, kidney/bladder infection, under-bite or over-bite, grade one heart murmor, grade one/two luxating patella. Buyer understands that replacement option is only valid when health problems are attributed to a heredity problem and not due to accident or contagious and/or other illness.

If a replacement of like puppy, when one becomes available, is deemed necessary, seller will not reimburse shipping/delivery charges.

If for any reason Buyer decides to not keep the puppy, Seller has first right of refusal. In other words, Buyer must offer to return puppy to Seller before selling or giving the puppy to any other person.
