Show Puppy: The show puppy prospects will be sold on a single owner or co-ownership (circle one) on an AKC limited registration basis. The registration will be changed to Full AKC registration, for the show puppy prospect, once the Buyer provides documentation to Blue View GSMD that the show puppy prospect owner/buyer has met the following conditions: 1.

Companion Puppy Puppy companion prospects will be sold only with a limited AKC registration, with a single ownership with spay/neuter agreements. We recommend: 1. Neutering male pups after 18 months of age. 2. Spaying female pups no sooner than 60-90 days after their first heat cycle. **Allowing the male puppy to remain intact until 18 months gives the giant breed puppy's body time to mature and makes use of the hormones found in an intact boy, which are very important to the proper development of the musculoskeletal system. Allowing the female puppy to go through one estrus cycle, helps to prevent early urinary incontinance issues. Health Guarantee (companion puppy):
If one of the following conditions occurs to the companion puppy that is documented by a veterinarian, Blue View GSMD will replace the companion puppy with a puppy of equal quality: 1. If puppy dies before the age of five from an inherited condition. 2.

(OFA) rating before the age of three. 3. If the puppy develops blinding eye problems at or before the age of two. 4. If the puppy develops bilateral osteochondrosis dessicans (OCD) before the age of 3. 5. OFA Elbow ratings of grade 2 or 3 that is accompanied by clinical symptoms before the age of three.
The seller can require confirmation of the condition by a veterinarian of the sellers choosing. Such confirmation shall be at the seller’s expense.
