In this day and age where people sue at the drop of a hat, every site is forced to put up a Legal Mumbo Jumbo page, which consists of "We're not responsible for anything" paragraphs that drone on and on. So here's ours. Before you read the boring legalese, you might want to read it in plain English, as follows:
- The information found on yourpurebredpuppy.com is what WE do or would do with our own dogs. This information should not be used as your sole source for deciding which breed of dog to get, how to raise or train your dog, how to handle any behavioral or health problem, and so on.
- It's possible that some information on yourpurebredpuppy.com might be false, incomplete, unsafe, or even (dare we say it) just plain stupid. We try not to do this, but can't guarantee that we succeed! Thus, we do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or safety of any information, nor do we accept liability for the consequences of any actions taken (or not taken) on the basis of this information. You use this site and any of our advice at your own risk.
- Everything on this site is copyrighted. Most of the copyrights are owned by us, but some are owned by other people. You are welcome to print out a few of our copyrighted pages for your own personal, non-commercial use (i.e. because you'd rather read stuff on paper rather than on the computer). But you can't copy, modify, distribute, or post on any other site any of the articles or information found on yourpurebredpuppy.com. You can link to an article, but you can't include it on your own site.
Pretty simple, yes?
But not tongue-twisting enough for the legal eagles. So now for the official mumbo jumbo:
Your Purebred Puppy and yourpurebredpuppy.com are registered tradenames of Petbridge LLC.
The term "we" or "us" or "our" refers to Your Purebred Puppy, yourpurebredpuppy.com (the "site"), Petbridge LLC, and/or Michele Welton, the author of the information on yourpurebredpuppy.com. The term "you" refers to the user or viewer.
