This dog is sold as a Pet. Pet quality simply refers to the dog being sold as a pet and companion only.  This dog has a long pedigree of hunt test and trial success and has reasonable genetics to become a hunting companion.  However, due to numerous errors in or neglect of training or handling that can occur during this dogs growth and development, no warranty is made by Idaho Shorthairs that this dog will be developed into a hunting, field test, or trial dog.


This dog is not being sold under co-ownership terms.  Payment in full must be made prior to you taking ownership of the dog, payment is in cash, credit card payment, or agreed to terms of barter for:_______________________________________________________________________.

The seller certifies that, upon receipt, the dog is in good health and has been immunized and wormed according to the accompanying heath records of said GSP.  This dog has the following conditions at this time ___________________________________________________________ and those conditions are excluded from any guarantee and are not valid to reject the puppy due to these conditions.

The buyer agrees to have the dog examined by buyer’s veterinarian at buyer’s expense within 3 days from the date of purchase. If the veterinarian does not give the dog a clean bill of health, buyer must notify the seller immediately to arrange for the return of the dog and refund of the full purchase price of the dog.  In the event that the buyer refuses to return the dog to the seller for full refund and treatment, Idaho Shorthairs assumes no financial legal obligation and will not reimburse or pay for any treatments, medications, or medical services incurred by the buyer, now or in the future.

Hip and elbow dysplasia is covered for 2 years from the date of purchase with the same conditions as above in effect.  Heat stroke, exhaustion, dehydration and other heat-related conditions are not covered in any way.  Remember that a GSP can overheat quickly and easily and may die as a result of over-heating.  The dog must be monitored during activity to ensure proper hydration and body temperature.

Refunds and Returns:

There are no refunds on dog for anything except medical related issues that have been discovered and verified in writing by a veterinarian and confirmed at seller request by seller’s veterinarian.  Under certain circumstances, the seller may choose to accept the return of the puppy in order to rehome it, but this is at the sole discretion of the seller due to the numerous risks of bringing a dog that has not been quarantined back into the seller’s kennel.  Buyer understands that there will be no refunds, even in the event of the return of the puppy, unless the situation falls under the seller’s health guarantee.
