We want you and your puppy to be happy and we do our best to match the puppy with the needs of you the buyer. We cannot guarantee that this will be the perfect match and advise new dog owners to take a class and educate themselves about owning a new puppy, and we also encourage you to enter an obedience course with your new puppy. Remember, the general consensus is that there are no bad dogs only uneducated/inexperienced owners. The more educated you are about how to treat and train a dog and communicate with him/her the better the relationship will be all around. Websites we recommend to begin the learning process are as follows: and .

At the time of purchase, all puppies will be up to date on worming and vaccinations (for their age, be aware you have to maintain the vaccination/worming schedule after adoption) and will have a puppy package that includes, shot record and samples of puppy food the puppy is currently eating so that if you will be switching foods you can do it gradually. We work with the puppies and help to lay the foundation for understanding potty training by incorporating aspects of the Misty Method, but we encourage you to educate yourself on the best methods of training by reading up to date literature on the subject. (Reference dogbreedinfo and leerburg to learn more) Also, please understand that when you bring any new puppy into your home, you are going to be responsible for teaching the puppy clearly what the new routines and boundaries are at your home. Every household schedule is different, so be prepared to train your puppy in the laws of the land at your home, which will differ from what we do here at Piney Grove Kennels. Please ask if you need assistance with this, and remember that potty training takes time and consistency.


Please read the following statements below and sign your agreement at the bottom:

I, the buyer, understand that the seller cannot guarantee that any animal they sell will never have any health problems. However, the seller will guarantee the puppy to be in good health at the time of the sale. This is a 3 day guarantee. (genetic health guarantee to be discussed further below) Buyer must take the puppy(s) to a licensed Veterinarian within 3 days of purchase at the buyer’s expense for this guarantee to remain valid. The reason for the 3 day time frame is that after 3 days, it is almost impossible to distinguish whether or not the puppy fell ill due to environmental factors/contaminants in their new home, so it is the buyer's responsibility to verify with the puppy's new veterinarian that the puppy is in good health as soon as the puppy is brought to his/her new home. If the puppy is found to be ill at the time of the initial veterinary visit, it is reasonably clear that the puppy is ill because of the breeder, and the visit has been conducted within the three day time frame, then the breeder will either A: take the pup back and refund the purchase price. B: Replace the puppy with a healthy puppy. All veterinary care and travel expense is solely the responsibility of the buyer. Any vaccinations or medications given without the breeders approval during this 3 day period may null and void this health guarantee. This does not apply to common puppy hood conditions, such as worms, that are able to be treated easily and inexpensively with antibiotics or deworming medications. I the buyer understand that any accidents that may occur or anything that the puppy ingests after leaving the care of the seller is the buyer’s responsibility., as there is no way we can control such incidents. (Accidents happen) Take care to “puppy proof” your home before or soon after you bring your puppy home. Make sure cords, socks, and small items are all out of the way. You must treat the puppy as you would a roaming, crawling baby, and safety proof your home accordingly. It is advisable, especially while the pup is learning potty training and adjusting to the new home, that the pup isn't allowed free roam of the entire house. It is best to only let the pup out of his or her safe area, the crate, under supervision. This cuts down on potty accidents and cuts down on the possibility of the pup getting into something the owner overlooks during puppy-proofing.


The buyer understands that if he/she is no longer able to care for the puppy, and cannot find an appropriate home for the pup, then the buyer can and should contact Piney Grove Kennels and make arrangements to find an appropriate home for the puppy, whether that be here at Piney Grove Kennels or to an approved home. This is our Lifetime Rehoming Support and is meant to ensure that none of our puppies or dogs ever end up in a shelter or similar establishment. We will not contribute to the overcrowding of animal shelters. However, we are not normally able to purchase a pup back. But we will always have kennels open to keep a Piney Grove Kennels pup, or we will make space, rather than see one of our pups end up on the street or in a shelter. Be aware that even shelters who claim to be “no kill” will often just send a dog to a kill shelter when they have reached capacity.


I understand that the seller does not guarantee against Parvo or any kind of bacteria and/or viruses after 3 days of purchase. I also understand that vaccination for these diseases does not guarantee that the animal will not contract a disease especially before at least three rounds of vaccines have been given. Please keep the puppy away from any unhealthy pets or areas that have been infected and be aware that Parvovirus can live in areas for a very long time. Also, until your puppy has received it's third round of vaccinations, please keep your puppy quarantined in your home as much as humanly possible. It is highly ill-advised to take your puppy to a place such as PetSmart or rest areas as these are very high traffic areas where you do not know the vaccination status of any of the animals. Also be aware that visitors coming into your home should remove their shoes and wash their hands before handling the pup until such time as the pup has received all necessary boosters. Until your puppy has received the first set of vaccinations, do not let your puppy down on the floor at the vet's office, if at all possible. Carry your pup into the vet's office inside his or her crate, and be sure to sanitize the examination table before setting your puppy on it. If the puppy has sustained health problems resulting from injury, or mistreatment or neglect, after leaving the Seller, the Seller will not assume responsibility for veterinary bills and no refund will be forthcoming. If abuse or neglect is found to be the case, seller may demand the puppy to be returned at the buyer’s expense. Or breeder may arrange to pick up the pup. To be determined by breeder. We are not contractually obligated to pay any vet bills at all, unless we choose to do so.


We cannot guarantee that the dog will not contract mange (sarcoptic mange, Ear mites, or any type of mite mange).  Every dog has a population of mites present on their bodies. There are different specific causes of mange including genetic and environmental factors, as well as stress and nutrition, therefore we cannot guarantee against it. There is, however, a general agreement that if a dog over the age of 1 year progresses to generalized demodectic mange and is unable to fight off the mites, that it is most likely due to an underlying immune system defect based on genetic factors, and we will generally work with adopters to replace or refund a pup that contracts a condition such as this and keeps the condition, or keeps having recurrences of this condition, but we reserve the right to determine, based on the supporting documentation, facts and veterinarian opinions, whether or not to warranty against this situation. We must be contacted at the first signs and symptoms and be a part in making decisions for the treatment and care of this condition for it to be warrantied.

If your dog is used in any sort illegal activity (dog fighting) or is mistreated, malnourished, not provided with quality dog food, abused or not taken care of, this guarantee is completely null and void. (No matter the case we will always take the puppy back before allowing him/her to enter into an unsafe home environment or a shelter or similar establishment)

This puppy will be free from genetic defects, that are life threatening or debilitating (such as defects of the heart, eyes, joints, etc.) at his or her 3 year veterinary check up. If a genetic disease/illness/condition is found by a licensed Veterinarian and presented to the Breeder with sufficient documentation and diagnostic processes to determine that it is truly a genetic, inherited condition, the Breeder will replace the puppy, when one is available from a litter of our choosing. (or we will give a refund of the original purchase price minus any shipping fees, choice of which to be determined by the breeder and refunds are only made available from the funds that come from the sale of puppies, and so before refunds are processed we must make sure the dogs' needs are covered and only take the money from the sale of the puppies. As such, there is not a specific time frame in which the breeder must refund monies. Breeder reserves the right to have the diagnosis confirmed by breeder's own veterinarian at the breeder's expense. The dog must be delivered back to the breeder at the buyer's expense for the second opinion, if a refund or replacement is to be considered. If the diagnoses are conflicting, breeder and adopter will mutually agree upon a third veterinarian as a final resolution to the matter. Breeder is not responsible for any shipping costs or delivery costs. Depending upon the circumstances, the breeder may demand that the original puppy be returned. The cost of returning the pup and having the new pup of breeder's choice shipped back to you is the buyer's responsibility. The breeder is not legally responsible for any veterinarian charges you may incur at your vet for the puppy. (Although this is something we reserve the right to determine on a case by case basis, as we may feel responsible for part of the vet bill)

When you purchase your puppy, he/she has been vet checked, received all necessary vaccinations and worming. The Buyer(s) agrees to provide annual vet exams and to do all vaccinations yearly. Failure to comply with and provide documentation of these requirements voids all guarantees. The buyer further warrants that puppy will be kept in appropriate conditions for its health and welfare. Puppy will be fed a suitable diet for its age and condition. (a protein as first ingredient in the dog food, after potty habits are established, feed your dog enough but not too much to maintain optimum weight, puppy food for the first year, and after that switching to a quality adult food. Visit to assist you in choosing a good dog food. 5 star ratings are the best, but please don't choose anything less than 3 stars.)

The seller does not guarantee size, coat, color, or fertility once the puppy has left our premises. We only warranty genetic conditions that are life-threatening and/or debilitating. If you purchase your pup with intentions to breed, but he or she develops a condition that is no life threatening or debilitating, but that prevents you from breeding the animal, we do not refund. Any time anyone purchases a pup with the intent to breed, there is a certain amount of risk that the puppy will not be breed quality. Although we can guide our customers to choose puppies from litters we feel will be breed quality, we cannot guarantee breed quality. It is just a part of breeding to have to wait until a pup has grown up to determine whether it is a breeding quality animal. Also, we do not warranty coccidiosis, giardia, ear mites, external/internal parasites, viral or bacterial infections that may occur after the three day time frame when the puppy is brought into your environment. As these are also conditions that we cannot guarantee that the puppy will not come in contact with after leaving our environment and most are easily treatable and in nearly every environment. Worms and parasites are just a part of life for dogs, and the best we humans can do is maintain a regular worming/parasite protection schedule. Please understand as well that the change from one home to another is stressful on a young puppy's immune system, and so, I recommend for the first few weeks treating your puppy as you would a newborn baby brought home from the hospital. Do not take him/her to areas where you are unsure if there have been unvaccinated pets/animals etc., keep things as stress-free as possible for your puppy. Leaving his/her brothers, sisters, mother, and all of us here at PGK is a big deal to your pup and coming into your new home environment is also a big deal. It's a lot to take in for a little one, but of course, puppies are resilient and will adjust nicely with the proper care and consideration.

Your puppy will have Piney Grove's as the prefix for its name.

This written agreement is a binding contract entered into the State of Georgia and is the entire agreement between the buyer and seller. All pups will be sold with pet home rights only unless otherwise discussed between breeder and adopter. This guarantee is extended to the original Purchaser only, and is not transferable. All pups' papers will be marked with limited registration unless otherwise discussed between buyer and seller.

***Please keep in mind that feedback is very important. Please send me a picture when your pup is 6 months, then at 1 year, then at 2 and again finally at 3. Also, please update me if there are any issues with your pup along the way. From food allergies, to digestion issues, I want to know. This information helps me to make informed and thoughtful decisions in my breeding program.***
