IF DIARRHEA EXISTS THEN NO VACCINES. A puppy with loose stool should never receive a vaccine as the intestines could be inflamed and death may occur from a vaccine containing live Parvo virus. There is a rare but possible vaccine induced Parvo ( Parvo vaccines are live but modified to prevent the actual disease itself) because Parvo vaccine works on immunity in the intestinal wall. If the vaccine finds damaged intestinal walls with inflammation, then the LIVE parvo cells can cause serious illness in an unsuitable environment,
DONT CHANGE DIET! CAN CAUSE A LIFE THREATENING ISSUE: Once the buyer causes diarrhea by giving new young puppy foods forbidden by the breeder, then your puppy can Become very ill and die from electrolyte imbalances. Diarrhea kills children in third world countries every day. Diarrhea Is dangerous. Teacup puppies are fragile and you must not give them canned food of any kind, nor dried organ meats ( Bacteria) nor raw hides, nor any kind of doggie snacks until over six months, nor any kind of dog jerky ( many dogs have died in usa from suspected dog snacks) it is vital that buyers READ PUPPY FEEDING PAGE of my website
LIMITED PARVO COVERAGE DETAILS. Since Vets label everything Parvo we require a test to RULE OUT other issues. We do NOT accept the results of a poop test for Parvo called a "fecal snap" test. We do not accept a Parvo diagnosis UNLESS A SPECIFIC TEST called a FECAL GLASS SIDE TEST IS SENT BY YOUR VET TO AN OUTSIDE LABORATORY to RULE OUT Giardia, Cocci, Bacteria, Campylobactor, Ecoli and Salmonella.
We offer 14 days, but only IF you follow these rules

Our remedy is replacement only and no medical bills. See REMEDIES
ONLINE DEFAMATION Defamatory posts are written by a Competitors posing as buyers. It took over a year to find identities as they hid behind anonymity, masquerading as upset buyers on a forum run by an x felon, who allows posting of ANYTHING, without any validation. By the time I discovered identities these Chihuahua breeders had written dozens of fake reports posing as disgruntled customers. The posts were meant to ruin our online presence. The posts were meant to deceive the public (you) to not purcahse from us. The quality of our dogs SPEAK FOR US. One of our harassers has multiple felony records. Not only chidren can be bullies but adults can be bullies too. I have a page on our website that details portions of the character assassination at the hands of these 35 to 60 year old women. I have over 100 customer references on my site from 2004 onward. Lack of laws allowing character assassination of innocent people should not be permitted. Forum owners should be held liable for unvalidated malicious damaging material posted. We do not refund deposits nor payments if you find online defamation.

BREEDER DOES NOT WARRANTY We do not warranty against moleras. Moleras are part of the Chihuahua breed standard. non genetic illnesses, cosmetic defects such as ear shape or size, color of coat, or quality of coat, tail length, or any body part. We also do not warranty body size, weight, but If the puppy, in care of breeder, changes significantly from original projection of quality or size (in the a Breeders view) and the breeder feels the puppy is no longer suitable as earlier represented, then the Breeder will inform Buyer and give option to choose another puppy, when available. We do not warranty skin color or condition, hernias, fertility of male or female including male’s testes. There is no partial refund if your puppy ends up not the size you wanted. Smallest pups usually are smallest adults but not always. Paying more for the smallest puppy versus paying less for the largest puppy just gives less or more risk with adult size prediction. There is no perfect formula in predicting adult size and we price first for quality , not for size, and there will always be a percent of risk of error o matter what size puppy you choose to purchase. As a rule the smallest puppy becomes the smallest adult, but there is always a puppy that can go against the rule
LIMITED WARRANTY LUX PATELLAS
In 20 years we have produced 3 puppies with luxating patella's. We have produced over 100 of puppies over the years with perfect knees. One customer said her puppy fell off of a table and that resulted in luxation patella injury. We do not warranty puppies sold against 1st degree as this normally resolves as the muscles tighter during growth. If patella is grade 2 or above in a puppy under 6 months and two unaffiliated Vets conclude no possible injury and conclude 100% definite genetic in cause then they must write a letter to us describing the conclusions they reach and the letter must tell us that injury was not the cause.Environment factors can cause luxating patella's. We have remedies for genetic defects. See LIMITED WARRANTIES/REMEDIES.
