Jump Jivin' Aussies Health Guarantee

The following is the Health Guarantee for your puppy and requirements of breeder and buyer regarding  expectations via contract to abide by the language  for limited (no breeding) and full registration breeding as well as care of offspring if breeding rights are given, and if puppy cannot stay with buyer in this contract Jump Jivin' Aussies has first right of refusal.

Jump Jivin' Aussies (JJA)  puppies are the product of two purebred AKC registered Australian Shepherd parents without any visible health problems or known hereditary conditions, and is guaranteed to be in good health & free from communicable disease at time of sale.


You are allowed a 24 hour health guarantee against Parvo.  Even though we have vaccinated our puppies against Parvo, they are still highly susceptible to Parvo when exposed until they have their next 18 week vaccine.  Puppies can be exposed to Parvo on the trip home, simply by allowing the puppy to walk where other dogs have defecated.  Puppies are not guaranteed against Parvo 24 hours after leaving our protective care.  Parvo is a highly contagious disease and is easily picked up from the soil and/or other infected dogs. You must be diligent to not walk puppy in an area used by other dogs or allow puppy to be around other potentially unvaccinated dogs until they receive their second Parvo vaccine at 18 weeks. If your puppy shows signs of Parvo (at anytime) you must immediately seek emergency care or your puppy may not survive.  The health guarantee for Parvo is null and void after the first 24 hours of leaving our protective care.   After 24 hours the health guarantee does not cover any parasite, internal or external, as these are common and easily treatable conditions in puppies & dogs. Every effort on the breeder's part will be made to eliminate parasites before the puppy is transferred to the buyer; however, shedding of parasites may still be occurring at that time and is normal after treatment. Buyer has been informed that puppy has recently been de- wormed & worms may be present in the stools as wormer is designed to rid the intestinal tract of parasites. Buyer should also be aware that vaccinated puppies are still susceptible to contagious disease even though every effort has been made to prevent this unfortunate occurrence. 

You are allowed a one-month guarantee period on any genetic/hereditary defects beginning at the time puppy is received into your care, to take your new puppy to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) for a health examination, at your expense, if you so desire. If within the above listed timeframe(s) a veterinarian finds an illness or physical impairment related to  a genetic/hereditary defect, a full refund will be returned to you in exchange for the puppy which must be returned to the breeder at buyer's expense within 7 days.   An official report from the veterinarian listing the reason for return is required. Report MUST include the veterinarian's contact information and any testing results that were completed to support the claims.  The breeder reserves the right to have the puppy examined and tested by a veterinarian of Jump Jivin' Aussie's choice before agreeing to return/refund purchase of puppy.


 Australian Shepherds have been known to have injury issues with their hips and elbows. In an effort to avoid injury, it is recommended to not allow puppies to engage in  high intensity, high impact activities for the first 18 months of an Australian Shepherds life to prevent damage to cartilage as the puppy is still growing. 


This contract is between Jump Jivin' Aussies, LLC, and the buyer listed below ONLY.  If for any reason the buyer is unable to keep the puppy/dog; Jump Jivin' Aussies, LLC, reserves the right of first refusal and should be contacted first if at any time this puppy/dog needs to be placed in another home.  Buyer agrees he/she will not re-home, resell, give up to a shelter or abandoned the puppy/dog.  Instead buyer will contact Jump Jivin' Aussies, LLC, to make arrangements to return the dog.
