Our dogs are placed in their new homes with a 3 year genetic Health Guarantee that is included in our contract. Above and beyond that, we recommend that you purchase Pet Insurance for your new family member. Unexpected issues can arise with pets, and veterinary care can commonly range from $500-$2500 for emergency situations. For the small fees needed to maintain an insurance policy, we feel it is totally worth it. We suggest Pet Plan pet insurance.
