Quail Ridge Kennel's Policy
Considerable thought should be given prior to the purchase of a new puppy. Protecting our puppies and customers is of great concern. We ask that you strongly consider your decision to purchase a new puppy. Please educate yourself on the particular breed you have chosen.
All breeds are not suitable for all lifestyles and environments.
Microchips are implanted in every puppy purchased from Quail Ridge Kennels.
In order to ensure proper identification of your puppy we have micro chipped your puppy. Documents for registering the microchip number, identifying you as the new owner will be included in your puppy's document packet. In the unfortunate event your new puppy is lost or stolen a microchip can be very effective in aiding the safe return of your pet.
Spay or Neuter
Spaying or neutering protects against unwanted puppies, house pets are easier to manage and males are less likely to wander. Spayed and neutered pets make better neighbors. Consult your veterinarian concerning the appropriate age for the procedure, the potential risks and the added health benefits.

Buyer agrees to assume all cost for the initial health screening exam and or any subsequent exams and or any services or medical treatments performed by a licensed veterinarian. No reimbursement will be made to any veterinarian or buyer for veterinarian services by Quail Ridge Kennels without the prior expressed written consent of Quail Ridge Kennels.
Upon initial exam should the attending licensed veterinarian diagnose any condition detrimental to the puppy’s general health or conclude that the puppy is defective and unfit for purchase, notify Quail Ridge Kennels immediately.
