In the event a female 12 months of age or over is claimed to be non-breeder, after having been breed regularly to a buck known to be a breeder and after having been treated by a licensed veterinarian, the matter must be reported in writing to the Seller within (7) seven months of sale date, or by the time the female is 19 months old, if purchased prior to her first birthday. The Seller shall have (6) six additional months in which to prove any such female, in acceptable breeding conditions, a breeder and may use any registered buck of the breed available to him/her.

In no event shall the Seller be responsible for more than the purchase price.
