Sales Terms & Health Guarantee
Great Pyrenees Livestock Guardian Dog
SPECIFIC PUPPIES WILL ONLY BE HELD AFTER WE RECEIVE A $150 DEPOSIT. Promises of payment are not sufficient to hold specific puppies. Paypal is the preferred method of deposit, and we expect either Paypal (cleared before the puppy leaves the farm) or cash for the full balance at time of pickup. Puppies being shipped can be paid in full via Paypal or a personal check mailed before ship date.
To send your deposit via Paypal, go to www.paypal.me/lmhfarm/150 (do not check the “Paying for goods or a service” option- this will add additional fees) If you are mailing a check, we cannot promise that your chosen puppy will still be available when the check is cleared, but you will get a puppy of your chosen gender if check is received within 4 days of the agreement. PLEASE EMAIL BEFORE SENDING A DEPOSIT TO BE SURE A PUPPY IS AVAILABLE.
Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE after 72 hours once a specific puppy is chosen, except in case of an injury or illness of your selected puppy before pickup. If no replacements are available from the same litter, your deposit will be moved to the next available litter, or you may get a refund only for a problem with the pup. If you simply change your mind regarding a puppy purchase for any reason, you may bump your deposit to the next available litter or forfeit the deposit.

Spays & Neuters on giant breed dogs should be delayed until 1 year of age for proper bone growth. Females will generally come into heat around 10-12 months. Care should be taken to note vulva size, as early spay can also lead to recessed vulva and its associated problems.
Pups have been fed Iams Large Breed puppy food. DO NOT OVERFEED as excess can lead to orthopedic problems. ALWAYS give food formulated for LARGE BREED dogs!
These puppies are guaranteed healthy at time of sale, and have an exchange or money back guarantee with return of pup for: infectious disease incurred within 7 days of purchase, genetic defects diagnosed within 1 year that inhibit normal working activities or breeding, or Hip Dysplasia diagnosed within 2 years of purchase. Under no circumstances will we pay veterinary expenses after the pup leaves our farm. If your pup is found to be ill within the warranty period for a covered condition, pup should be returned for refund or exchange. If you choose to keep the puppy with problem, you assume all financial responsibility and negate money back guarantee for that condition.
An OFA or equivalent exam should be done by 2 years of age if warranty conditions are desired. OFA guarantee expires at that time. Preliminary readings are acceptable. Hips are guaranteed against hip dysplasia for 2 years with OFA reading of Fair or better. EARLY SPAY OR NEUTER BEFORE 12 MONTHS OF AGE WILL VOID WARRANTY OF ORTHOPEDIC PROBLEMS. EXCESSIVE CRATING (more than three hours during daytime hours) WILL ALSO VOID THE ORTHOPEDIC WARRANTY DUE TO ADVERSE EFFECT ON LONG BONE DEVELOPMENT.
Medical reasons for return must have veterinarian’s statement. Parasite control and nutritional needs require ongoing care, and warranty does not cover preventable diseases after 7 days. Pups will be dewormed appropriately before leaving our farm, and fecals done, but they do originate from a farm with many species of domestic and wild animals. A parasite-free pup is desired but not guaranteed due to exposure of working environment. Pups are not fully protected from infectious disease until vaccine series is complete, so care should be taken not to expose pups in public places (dog parks, public walkways, beaches, groomers, etc), and vaccines should be done in a timely manner.
If you need to re-home the animal for any reason after the warranty period, we will take the dog back with no refund, and place in a new home. If you place the dog yourself, please inform us of the transaction.
Our warranty includes exchange for equivalent value puppy if available, or reimbursement of purchase price only with return of dog or vet statement of death during the warranty period, and only for covered conditions. Return transportation costs are paid by buyer.
This warranty does not cover any veterinary expenses after puppy leaves our premises. A veterinary exam is recommended within 72 hours of pick-up to confirm health.
Transportation costs will be paid by the Buyer. Costs will be agreed upon between Buyer and Seller prior to delivery, if seller delivers. Any return transportation arrangements for refund in warranty period, or return after warranty period, must be made by buyer.
