Policies & health Guarantee



Puppy must be picked up within one week of puppy being ready to go unless other arrangements have been made between seller and buyer. If puppy is not picked up within one week and I have not heard from buyer, it will be resold to another party and deposit forfeited. If a check bounces we reserve the right to repossess the puppy unless another form of payment is received other than a check. We do not guarantee size, temperament or breeding ability.

​This puppy can never be taken to an animal shelter or rescue of any kind, if for any reason you can not keep the puppy at any point throughout its life he/she must be returned to Crooked River Saints, all vet records/AKC paperwork (if applicable) must be signed over. No money is refunded.

* Lifetime Free Replacement Puppy Guarantee Option because we believe so strongly that nutrition plays a very big part in the health of an animal, we are offering a * Lifetime Free Replacement Puppy guarantee. Should you choose this, the lifetime guarantee stipulates that the puppy must be fed “Life's Abundance Daily Nutritional System” and the "NuJoint Plus" which is food and supplements for their entire lifetime. The reason we have chosen to offer this option to our guarantee, is because so many dogs and cats are acquiring serious life threatening health risks through poor diet and vitamin deficiency. We believe that these products provide the optimum nutritional benefits ensuring good health and longevity for dogs, which is why we are willing to stand behind this guarantee. If your Saint Bernard or Newfoundland does not reach 8 years old, you will be eligible to get a free replacement puppy of equal value.

In regards to hereditary defects, there are never any guarantees that a dog would be free of a genetic disorder from past generations. But since we may not know if there are any potential weaknesses in a dog, we believe that the diet and lack of vitamins can exasperate these conditions if found. Therefore by providing the dog with quality food and supplements, we are hoping to reduce the chances of these potential weaknesses from hindering their quality of life, should this ever occur.

​* Lifetime Free Replacement Puppy Information: -this guarantee does not include the vet check, CERF exam, shots, wormings, transpiration, carrier, or other fees. The Lifetime Free Replacement Puppy health Guarantee is for the health of your Saint Bernard or Newfoundland, and does not cover accidental death, neglect, abuse, or injuries that the dog may sustain while being a part of your family. We believe that Life Abundance Daily Nutritional system is a great combination to provide your dog with optimal health, so that you Saint Bernard or Newfoundland can live a long and happy life with your family!
