We warrant that the puppy is in good health at the time the buyer assumes ownership. As this puppy is being purchased as a companion pet, we recommend that the puppy be neutered or spayed.
Your puppy is fully guaranteed against any life threatening or significantly life altering genetic defects until 12 months of age. In the event of any life threatening or significantly life altering defect before the puppy reaches the age of 12 months, we agree to provide the buyer another puppy when available. A written statement from a licensed Veterinarian must be provided, and we have the option to have the condition verified by our own Veterinarian.
We are not responsible for any costs relating to your puppy (vet bills, medical, emotional, etc.) other than what has been stated in this guarantee. The Buyer further agrees that this puppy is being sold to them as a companion pet, and therefore, carries no warranty for conformation faults or non-life threatening genetic anomalies. Additionally, no guarantee is made as to disposition, conformation, size, hunting, retrieving, or breeding capability.
The buyer agrees to have the puppy examined by a licensed Veterinarian within two (2) days (not including Sundays and holidays) of receipt of puppy. The puppy may be returned to us for any reason within the two (2) days following purchase (Provided that the dog/puppy has not been damaged in any way). The Buyer will then be entitled to a refund of the original purchase price less $250.00.
The Seller does not assume any liability for any injury or sickness contracted after 48 hours of receipt of the puppy (this includes parasites and protozoan diseases). We will not be held responsible for acts of puppy which are due to Buyer’s negligence.
All appropriate shots for the puppy’s age have been given, and a record of this vaccination history is supplied.
The Buyer agrees to maintain the puppy’s health in good condition, and to provide yearly examinations, vaccinations, heartworm test, and any other usual procedures necessary to assure good health. The Buyer agrees to provide a suitable fenced area for this puppy. This puppy shall also have adequate and proper shelter and housed securely.
The Buyer agrees that this puppy will not be tied out or chained unless supervised for the duration by an adult. The Buyer agrees to feed a high quality dog food and have fresh water available. We also recommend obedience training.
We certify that the puppy is eligible for registration under the Regulations of the American Kennel Club as a purebred Labrador Retriever and will provide the proper forms for such a registration.
Hip & Elbow Guarantee
This warranty is only valid for 12 months from the date of birth of the puppy. The puppy must not have been bred or sired a litter for this warranty to be effective.
The Buyer should educate himself/herself to proper nutrition of the dog so as not to induce joint problems of either lack of nutrition or by causing an overweight condition in a developing puppy.
It is understood that Hip & Elbow Dysplasia can be caused by poor nutrition or injury and that the puppy is guaranteed to the extent of GENETIC Hip & Elbow Dysplasia only.
In the event of GENETIC Hip or Elbow Dysplasia that warrants euthanization of the puppy before the age of 12 months, the Seller agrees to replace the puppy with another of same quality when available.
Please note that we do not require euthanization of the puppy, but if the puppy does develop GENETIC Hip or Elbow Dysplasia before the age of 12 months, we will provide the buyer another pup at no charge when available. A puppy found to have a mild condition, which will not in any way shorten or diminish the quality of life for that puppy, WILL NOT BE REPLACED.
If at any time the Buyer decides to relinquish ownership of this puppy, please notify us first. We usually have a waiting list of people looking for young adult or older dogs who need a good, loving home.
