Our Health Guarantee
We pride ourselves in breeding and caring for our Westies, with health among our highest concerns! Over several years of refining our bloodlines, we have selectively bred only the healthiest and happiest of Westies! Many of our adoptive families are returning customers, which can attest to our high integrity as a breeder, and you are welcome to reach out to them! Our puppies are checked for hernias, tooth/jaw correctness, eye problems, joint problems, and other common issues that can be observed in a small puppy around 6 to 7 weeks of age. All puppies are de-wormed multiple times and receive all standard puppy vaccinations to date while in our care. You will receive a copy of all the puppy's medical records before delivery!
We are committed to transparency, so if we become aware of any health issues in your puppy before delivery, we will openly disclose them as soon as possible. However, given our thorough selective breeding program and knowledge of our pets' health, we have full confidence that our pets and their puppies are completely free of any health or genetic issues!
Short-Term Health Guarantee: Buyers have 72 hours (unless otherwise agreed upon) from the time of exchange/delivery to have the puppy inspected by a licensed veterinarian (at the buyer's expense). If a puppy is determined to have an unacceptable health problem by the buyer's veterinarian in that time frame that will significantly affect its quality of life (not including common illnesses/conditions such as colds, viruses, retained testicles, etc.), subject to confirmation of accuracy by the seller's veterinarian and professional opinion, the buyer may return the puppy at the buyer's expense. A refund or a trade for a different puppy of the same gender and price can be arranged.
Long-Term Health Guarantee: Our dogs are all healthy and, to our knowledge, free of any genetic issues. However, if a puppy develops a genetic health problem within one year of its birth that significantly and negatively affects its quality of life (such as hip dysplasia, epilepsy, etc.), diagnosed by the buyer's licensed veterinarian, subject to confirmation of accuracy by the seller's veterinarian and professional opinion, we want to resolve the issue with you. If the condition is confirmed to be genetic, we may be able to offer to trade a different puppy of the same gender and price. In this situation, the buyer will pay all travel and veterinary costs.
Lifetime Support Guarantee: We are committed to being a valuable resource for you throughout your puppy's life! Whether you have questions about your Westie's health, behavior, training, or any other aspect of their well-being, we're here to help! Our lifetime support means you can reach out to us at any time for guidance, advice, or assistance. We believe in nurturing a lasting relationship and ensuring that both you and your beloved Westie enjoy a happy and healthy life together.
