Our puppies are raised with lots of supervision, care and interaction that aids in Puppy Development 


Before they leave us, they will have health examinations by a certified Veterinarian, dewormed, vaccinations UTD. Tails and dew claws are left intact, unless discussed and planned otherwise with Breeder


They will be introduced to many things to insure a well sound and happy pup, including proper introductions to bathing and Professional grooming. 

This protects the Breeder, the Pup and the Buyer. 

  • Clients have 72 hours from time of receiving puppy to have their new pup examined by a certified Veterinarian.  If said puppy is not examined within this time frame, any guarantee is null and void.


  • We offer a 2 year Health Guarantee against genetic illness such as kidney, liver or heart disease ..etc.  This does not include problems that are not genetically based of course.


  • Our guarantee is a replacement guarantee, never a money back guarantee.


  • We understand that you may have become very attached to your puppy, so we sometimes allow the original pup to be kept.  A request to have pup spayed or neutered before we send a replacement would be made.  Breeder has final choice whether someone is allowed to keep their original pup.


  • Puppies are not held without a deposit.  Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE but may be transferred to a puppy from the next litter...or when one is available.  The replacement pup must be of like value and could have different coat colour and parentage.


  • Balsam Ridge never guarantees size or only Mother Nature can determine this in the end.


  • Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs for puppy or dog returned and for recieving replacement puppy.


  • At Balsam Ridge we work closely with our Veterinarians and strive to keep our dogs as healthy and happy as possible.

  • We PROMISE to have our breeders tested for specific afflictions that may affect this particular breed and practice SAFE breeding ethics.

  • von Willebrand's Disease (vWD)

  • Neonatal Encephalopathy (NE)

  • CERF (Eyes-Examiner>Board Certified Veterinary Ophthamologist)

  • Hips (to look for signs of Hip Dysplasia)
