Health Guarantee

This page will present a complete list of our Limited Health Guarantee. Please read this carefully!

Dear New Puppy Parrents,
     Below you will find our Limited Health Guarantee that is as comprehensive as possible. In our quest for excellence, we have done our best in providing the healthiest and highest quality pets possible. Unacceptable genetic conditions (ie. life threatening) are screened out at the initial veterinary examinations. The information that we request is used to maintain a database that allows us to better screen out genetic conditions in purebred Yorkshire Terriers and provide protection for you, the buyer, and us (the breeder). It is for this reason the limited health guarantee must be blunt and state facts.
     Please become familiar with all aspects of this guarantee as they are binding and can not be changed. We hope you enjoy your new family member, as we have enjoyed watching them grow these few weeks.
                                                                      Sincerely
                                                                      Little Bundles of Joy-
                                                                      The Nasts
