" The First 10 weeks of the puppies’ life... Please understand that if we ever have to call and let you know a puppy is not able to be placed it is for everyone's benefit. I am not the type of breeder that is going to send home health issues to any family. If a puppy is ever born and has a birth defect or health issue that becomes apparent it is my responsibility as a breeder to take care of the puppy or find a special need home for it. Too often breeders today send home dogs with health issues that unsuspecting puppy parents end of having to deal with. We guarantee that won’t be the case with Priceless Pups. So please understand that we always have the best interest of the puppy and each and every Priceless Pups family in mind. If this ever happens we DO NOT REFUND MONEY. You have the option of picking another puppy or waiting on the upcoming litters. Things happen in breeding on occasion it is the same with human life. It is my job to make sure the puppy you get is healthy.
Policy while puppy is in our care and an issue arises. No refunds but you will have to pick another puppy of if available or you can get on the waiting list for another puppy

*Hypoglycemia* If you are going to become a toy dog owner you will want to familiarize yourself to the symptoms of hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is often seen in young toy puppies, and most of the time the symptoms can be controlled by eating, or by giving some glucose such as honey water to the puppy. Glucose is what the body uses as fuel and is necessary for the brain tissue and muscles to function. Hypoglycemia is when the blood sugar levels (glucose) fall well below normal. It can cause your puppy to become confused, disoriented, drowsy, have the shivers, stagger about, collapse, fall into a coma, or have seizures. Episodes of hypoglycemia often occur without warning. A puppy may be stressed by many things suck as a missed meal, being chilled, or even exhaustion from too much play. Because of their tiny size toy puppies cannot eat a lot at one time, and literally run out of fuel quickly. Puppies should be fed several times a day a high quality diet. Most puppies will outgrow the problem. Some very tiny dogs will continue to have bouts of hypoglycemia throughout their life. If your puppy experiences episodes of hypoglycemia it is important to restore the blood levels of glucose as quickly as possible. Typical symptoms: weakness listlessness depression staggering gait tremors If your puppy is conscious, give him/her a little White Karo Syrup, or Honey under its tongue, or rubbed on its gums. Do NOT pour into the mouth as the puppy could easily choke. You can also mix honey, or corn syrup with pedialite, stir to dissolve, and dribble it into the puppy's mouth. Nutrical also works extremely well in an emergency. The puppy should begin to improve within about ten minutes, if not contact your vet as quickly as you can. NOTE: BREEDER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR HYPOGLYCEMIA and no refunds or in-house credits will be offered for it. This is one of the reasons we keep our puppies longer than most breeders and make sure they are eating well on their own prior to sending them home to you
