Thank you for your question.
What does your sale contract say about this?
What caused the heart condition?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It wasn't a contract as I'm not a full time breeder it was just a one off litter. The condition is common in this breed they can develop it at any time.

Thanks for your reply. Unless the buyer can establish that the dog had the condition at the time of purchase, there are no grounds for providing a refund.
