be requested should the dog prove to have a life threatening
genetic condition. Written proof of examination must be provided
to the seller.
This guarantee will be terminated immediately if the dog is
not examined within the allotted time.

to the buyer or to any other third party for any consequential
or special damages resulting from
or in a manner related to the dog.
