Bill of sale and Health Guarantee

All Cavaliers bred and placed by Marino's Precious Cavaliers are guaranteed to be healthy at the time of placement. For Purpose of this agreement, once the puppy leaves the our  premises, it is under the new owners control. Notice of any problems with said puppy must be received within 72 hours or this guarantee is null and void
I.) All our have had a comprehensive examination done by a licensed veterinarian. They have had their 1  set of vaccines, and wormed. It is the responsibility of the new owner to keep up on the puppy’s vaccinations and de-worming’s, (we recommend every 2-3 weeks) until the puppy is 19 weeks old and then once annually.
Please be advised that until your puppy has had its full set of vaccinations it is susceptible to certain illnesses, and therefore should be kept out of areas where other dogs and other animals have been  and off of public areas. This would include parks, pet stores, and even your neighbor’s yards. While at the vet, keep your puppy on your lap or in a crate, away from other animals, and off the floor where sick animals have been. When your veterinarian tells you the vaccines are complete, you can begin to show off your new family member.
II.)The health of our Cavaliers and their babies are very important to us. 
Only the healthiest females are bred to our Stud.   In fact, to even be considered, each female must pass Heart & Eye, OFA Certification. , We  encourage all new owners to keep us informed if any problems should ever occur with your Cavalier throughout its lifetime. We very much like to stay in touch with our new owners. We would love to see pictures of your puppy as he/she grows.
III). If at any time during the lifetime of your Cavalier, should you find that you are no longer able to care for your dog or give it the quality of care it deserves, We are always willing to provide a home for our puppies and assist with finding a new loving home for them.  We understand that in life there are sometimes unforeseen circumstances that can occur  . Please do not give any Cavalier away or send it to a shelter. Once you receive your puppy it is up to you, the owner, to provide a safe, healthy environment which includes a nutritional diet, exercise, , time and love.  Please educate yourself before adopting a puppy, seller cannot guarantee the ability to house train the puppy, remember this is a baby, and as such should be given love, care, and attention. Puppy proof your home to prevent chewing accidents and provide chew toys for the appropriate chewing needs of the puppy. We recommend that you purchase a book on this breed before acquiring the puppy to help better prepare you with any questions or issues you might have with a new puppy.

IV.) We assumes no responsibility for the care or protection of puppy after it leaves our premises. We also have no responsibility for medical expenses incurred Landlords disapproval, family allergy to animal, disagreement of family members, and other events beyond our control.  We cannot guarantee personality traits, size or markings. Although we try to predict size, quality, and breeding ability of the puppies we cannot guarantee these attributes
V.) Papers: My puppies are placed with AKC   limited registration Papers,  I want my puppies to go to loving pet homes, where they are loved and adored for life. I highly recommend Spaying or Neutering – We recommend spaying or neutering a puppy between 9 – 12 months of age. At this time their growth hormones are usually finished. Puppies need their hormones during the growth period and early altering could change the size of your cavalier later in life. The growth plates usually close between 9 -12 months. If you neuter your male during this time he will not display the usual humping and marking that comes with males that have not been neutered. 
VI.) Cavaliers are an indoor dog and thoroughly enjoy the company of their family. They should never live outdoors.
VII). Cavaliers are like potato chips, one isn't enough. If you decide in the future to add another Cavalier to your family, we would love to offer you a $100 discount. If you refer someone to us, and they adopt a puppy, you will get $200 off the adoption of another puppy in the future.
Forms of Payment:
A non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to hold a puppy for you. This can be sent by personal check. The deposit will be refunded only if we are unable to fill your request. With this deposit, we will hold your puppy until is it time for the puppy to leave our home (usually when the puppy is 8-10 weeks of age). If you have not completed the adoption fee prior to puppy leaving or made other arrangements with us by that time, you will lose your deposit. Puppy orders are filled in the order the deposits come in.  Please understand that these dogs are in very high demand. If you should change your mind about adopting a puppy after you have sent in your deposit, be advised that we will not be able to refund your money. Deposits are refundable if something unforeseen is to come up at a vet check prior to going home. When you come to pick up your puppy, the full price of the puppy (minus the deposit) will need to be completed before you can take your puppy home. The  final amount due should be in cash or through PayPal.  If you send a personal check, it must clear the bank before the puppy can go home with you. Therefore, you should send us a personal check at least 2 weeks before you come to pick up your puppy, in order to be sure your check has clear.
