In addition to the above list Von familiar Rottweilers guarantees all of its puppies against Hip / Elbow dysplasia.

All of our breeding stock is tested and examined by a qualified / recognised veterinarian for all of the above hereditary faults and will only be used for breeding if they are assessed to be of satisfactory standard in those areas.
Should you believe that your Von familiar Rottweiler displays a hereditary fault in any of the above categories it should be brought to our attention immediately. Should the fault be verified we will offer you a replacement puppy of equivalent quality, free of charge. There is no opportunity for monetary refunds other than at the discretion of Von familiar Rottweilers.
In the case where the replacement puppy may need to be transported to the owners’ residence all costs associated with transport are to be the responsibility of the owner and Von familiar Rottweilers cannot be held accountable for this. It is highly recommended that desexing of your pet happens after maturity approximately 2 years of age if any issues arise from early desexing and has been proven from Dr Tony Messe the guarantee will be voided.  If the situation arises that the owner and von familiar Rottweilers cannot agree on the existence of a hereditary disorder the final judgement on the nature of the issue will be with Dr. Tony Meese of the Fawkner Veterinary Hospital. Any costs associated with presenting the dog for examination by Dr. Meese will be at the owner’s expense. Dr. Meese’s’ fees will be paid by Von familiar Rottweilers.
If an owner suspects their dog has a hereditary fault and undertakes potential remedial action without consultation / approval from Von familiar Rottweilers, then Von familiar Rottweilers will not be required to fulfil the requirements of this guarantee.
