All warranties are for replacement only, and not for refund of purchase price in whole or part, or any reimbursement of veterinary/medical expenses incurred by the buyer or any other expenses in whole or part.
Due to the inherent variability of breeding and litters, a puppy may not be available immediately and a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed one year, will be allowed for replacement. In the event no such puppy is available or seller is no longer breeding, a refund of one half the purchase price will be given to buyer.

This guarantee DOES NOT cover the following, which are common conditions for the bulldog breed and highly unpredictable: treatment for internal or external parasites or bacteria, cherry eye, loose hips, loose knees, skin allergies, elongated soft palates, and small or collapsed (stenotic) nostrils, bad or uneven bites, demodex, mange, inguinal or umbilical hernias, coccidia, kennel cough, giarrdia, or thyroid dysfunction.
As ForeverYoung French Bulldogs strives to produce the healthiest puppies possible and is always highly concerned about the subsequent health of all puppies produced and sold, please do contact the seller immediately for consultation if any of these conditions should occur throughout the life of your dog. This type of information is very important to our breeding program. Conditions such as cherry eye for example , which can indeed look very bad, are often easily treated and the seller will be more then happy to advise about any surgical or medical treatment options throughout the lifetime of our dogs. We also enjoy hearing updates on how healthy and well our dogs are doing in their new homes. Any and all updates are always welcomed.
Your puppy has received the vaccines listed above and should continue to receive their series of puppy combo distemper vaccines, if these are not yet completed.
Your puppy should NEVER be given any LYME or LEPTO vaccine at any point in their life! This vaccine is not proven to be effective and can result in many complications and illnesses. It is simply better to prevent your dog from getting ticks by applying Frontline/Revolution ONLY, monthly . Avoid any and all over the counter flea and tick medications as they can cause very serious ill side effects even death!! If your puppy is given a lyme or lepto vaccine at any point, all guarantees are null and void!
You puppy/dog should also NEVER be given a Lepto vaccine if avoidable as this vaccine can initiate an allergic reaction in the bull dog breed which can cause respiratory distress and possible death. If you live in an area where leptospirosis is seen frequently and your vet insists on this vaccine, which we do not agree with, it should never be given until your dog is over the age of 18 months. Any Lepto vaccine given at any point before this age also will result in all guarantees being null and void !
An initial rabies vaccine should be given at any point between 4-6 months of age and then boostered every 1-3 years as required by your state.
Buyer's signature indicates that he/she has reviewed and discussed this contract with the breeder/seller and agrees prior to receiving said puppy/dog and is in full agreement and approval of the above terms and conditions. Violation of any part of this contract may result in the seller reclaiming the animal without refund. The buyer agrees to pay all attorneys fees and court costs in the event this contract is litigated and any suit shall be filed and tried in Hudson County of New Jersey.
Bringing your new puppy home !!
( Some things you may want to have ready and waiting ) :
1.) The same food your puppy has already been started on is very important ~!~
This will make their transition easier and will be less stress on their digestive tract and can help prevent or lessen diarrhea which is common when puppies change homes and schedules. Please inquire as to which brand and type of puppy food your particular puppy is currently on as all pups and litters can be different. We use what works best for each. We typically feed Purina One Adult Lamb-N-Rice Formula Smartblend.
Frenchies can have very sensitive digestive systems so a food they do well on should be used and continued and food changes are strongly discouraged for this reason. No Table food or edible treats are recommended and especially NEVER give your Frenchie any RAWHIDES of any type!! Rawhides can and have been fatal !
In general human food/table food is not good for dogs and puppies, and should always be avoided. Changing foods and offering other protein sources at a young age can result in allergies later in life. Please do not change foods with out first contacting us to discuss why you are considering it.
2.) A Good Quality Crate. (Preferably the wire sided type not the enclosed plastic or mesh type.)
A crate that is well ventilated and one with a divider that can be adjusted as your puppy grows is a very good choice! Crate training is highly recommended for several reasons. First, this is most often the best way to housebreak. It also provides them with their own personal space and area much like a wolf with a den. Most will grow to love their crate as a adult if it is used properly for training and should never be used as a punishment.
Crates also provide safety as puppies go through chewing phases and when crated, can be provided limited and safe toys to chew in their crate and not everything in your home which is destructive, creates bad habits, and can be very dangerous for the puppy as well. Frenchies like other short faced ( ie. Bracheocephalic) breeds can easily choke on small items they may pick up when not supervised or confined. This is why a food with a smaller kibble size is also recommended through out their life as well as safe toys only. A list of safe and recommend toys will be provided to you in your puppy pack when you come to pick up your new puppy.
3.) Safe Chew Toys !
Again you will be given a list in your packet of information when you receive your puppy. But, in case you would like to have some on hand for when you first arrive home here is a list of those recommended:
Kongs, Wubbas, Tire Track Tires (with or with out the attached rope ), Hollee Roller Balls, and Sphericon Rubber Toy, Nyla Bones & Gumma Bones, Rope Toys, and deer antlers. Any stuffed type toys with squeekers, etc. should be used only for supervised interactive play and always put up and away when your puppy is not directly supervised, as the stuffing and small parts can be easily ripped off and swallowed, or worse choked on.
4.) A good safe Leash & Collar, and for actual walking, a Harness.
5.) Puppy Housebreaking pads. Your puppy has been paper trained to newspapers already so you may use these but most people prefer to use the wee-wee type training pads as they are more absorbent.
6.) Food & water bowls. Stainless steel are always best as they can not break or chip if chewed and do not cause allergic reactions and possible chin acne that the plastic bowls often cause.
7.) Dog gate(s)/Baby gate(s) to be used to block off certain rooms or any dangerous stair cases or areas of your home that you want to restrict the puppy from for their safety or to protect areas of your home from those inevitable 'accidents'.
8.) Dog Bed or Dog Bedding, 2 beds or sets of bedding are best for rotating, as one can be washing while other is in use.
~Raw Hides, pigs ears, cow hooves, or Bully Sticks!!
~Cooked real bones of any kind, as these can splinter and break into small fragments that can damage the digestive tract over time or pose a choking hazard.
~Chewy rubbery edible treats such as Pupperonis, Snausages, Beggin Strips, etc...
~Thin latex rubbery sqeeky toys, as they can easily chew these into pieces that can be swallowed and the sqeekers inside swallowed as well.
