Shipping & handling & vet expenses will be the responsibility of the recipient/new owner.

1. I certify the dog to have had its first set of vaccinations. You are responsible for the remaining (2) sets of shots, plus annual boosters. As above this guarantee is for genetic hereditary defects. This kennel is not responsible for any airborne or communicable diseases such as parvo, coccidian, giardia, distemper, rabies, or any other infectious diseases the puppy may pick up after leaving the premises of Pet Rescue SC. We take every precaution to prevent illness, but a pup’s immune system is immature at the time of transferring to a new home. Be very careful where you take your pup until fully immunized against the above diseases.

2. Under no circumstances will Pet Rescue SC be responsible for veterinary fees accumulated by our clients for this dog or its offspring.
