|If one of my pups would ever end up with HD, then I would have the dog have another x-ray (my cost) to confirm and I would give back a full refund after the dog was fixed. The buyer may keep the dog. I would do this as long as it fell within the time period.|

|"I would do this as long as it fell within the time period."|
But what IS 'the time period', John?

|I give 2 years to get the x-ray done. So the pup is 8 weeks old when picked up plus 24 months, that will give the new owners plenty of time to have the x-ray done and be registered with OFA, PennHip, or SV. A lot of vets don't know much about GSDs and will tell you they have HD without even taking an x-ray. Hope that helps, John Kennedy|

|Both of my girls have a hip guarentee. Up to 2 years from the date that I took over they'll give full replacement. One will spay the dog at their cost, and either full refund or replacement of the dog. The other just will refund the money I spent on the dog.|

|Hey, John, pretty good...how's things with you? Beastly hot in your part of the country, I see...not quite as bad up here. The storms of this past week missed you, I hope? Seems to have stayed mostly coastal...|
I knew *your* contract covered hips for two years, but thought it would be best if you added that, 'cause I've seen more than a few contracts that claim to cover hip soundness, but which are only valid for 1 year after the purchase...which, of course, isn't sufficient for someone buying an 8 week old puppy and wanting to use OFA certification.

I agree, 1 year is not enough time.
