This guarantee does not cover what we consider normal problems in the Bulldog breed or problems beyond our control: Cherry Eye, Entropian (eye lids that turn in and irritate the eye), “Loose Hips”, or skin allergies such as Localized Demodectic Mange. Bully Dawg Kennels does not breed dogs with such undesirable conditions. All of our dogs go through a total health physical performed by our veterinarian just before each breeding takes place and the dogs are only bred if both are found to be 100% healthy, but we cannot guarantee that previous generations did not have these conditions in their lines. This guarantee is void if dog has been bred, altered, transferred, or euthanized without the seller’s written consent.

No replacement will be offered in case of Parvo, Corona, Distemper, or Kennel Cough.

Due to the highly contagious nature and rapid progression we cannot be held liable as the puppy may have been exposed after it left our care.

The remainder of the payment must be paid in full at least 7 days prior to shipping or by cash only on the day the pup is picked up. Bully Dawgs will start taking deposits on pups when they are 1 week old – unless you send an “open deposit”. You do not have to choose your pup until they are 2 weeks old.
