The Seller asserts that the Buyer has been apprised of the importance of health testing any Puppy intended for breeding purposes.  The Buyer agrees never to use the Puppy for breeding unless it has been certified free of Hip Dysplasia. If the Puppy should fail its health clearances and the Buyer should opt to use the Puppy for breeding anyway, Buyer understands that they immediately forfeit the right to any replacement.
