Jasper's Warranty Is Up!

Jasper just turned 5. He came with a 5 year health warranty. At the time I thought, how amazing! right? Wrong! It was not for assistance with costs should he get sick, but an offer to trade Jasper in for a new puppy. Who would trade in their dog, a member of their family after a year let alone 5.

As has been mentioned here, the wonderful breeders are with you for life. you not only get a puppy, but a breeder as well.

There were many red flags from Jasper's breeder, wanted cash, wouldn't let us visit before pick up, no papers unless we paid more. But little baby Jasper had invaded our imagination, and once we were there to meet him, there was no way we could leave without him.

Puppies are the easiest thing for a breeder to market. The puppy does all the work! designed perfectly, to pull at your heart strings. And a warranty is only as good as the breeder. It is easy for a questionable breeder to offer a lengthy warranty, because they are never short of puppies, and not too many people would trade in a member of their family. So I would say be weary of fancy sites with lots of pictures and big warranties advertised in bold lettering.

Don't get me wrong, Jasper is my heart dog. I truly believe we were meant to find him. And he is incredibly healthy... just has a few temperment problems that better socialization, and better breeding, may have made our jobs easier.

now, keep you fingers crossed that everything doesn't start breaking now that the warranty is up. (knocking on wood as I type...LOL and when I did knock, Jasper went growling at the door)

"mom, why you goin diss'ing my roots again?"

Aww Missy, He is so precious, love that look on his face.
You are right though, I have never understood the 1 year or 2, or 3, or even five year guarantee. I would never expect one of my puppy buyers to give up a member of their family. We as breeders should be there for the life of your dog and if something should arise then at least a little help and a shoulder to lean on. I am always here and try to make myself available for my puppy people.
I don't think I could ever be one of those that say "Oh sorry your warranty is up so I not going to do any thing" that would be horrible. But unfortunately there are so many like that out there

I hope you have many more healthy and fun years with your boy

Have a great birthday, Jasper, even if your warranty has expired! Make Mama and Daddy give you lots of good treats and be sure to share with Cash!

Aww..he's so darn cute.

5 years, I wish I could get that warranty for all of my electronics...or appliances...or cars, well, you can but you have to pay for the extended lol..

I"m glad he's healthy, that's the important thing. He was meant to be where he is .
