Initial Guarantee: This puppy is guaranteed to be healthy at the time of purchase to the best of the breeder’s knowledge and has received proper immunizations and deworming prior to the sale. This guarantee does not include the presence of worms, which may be found in any healthy puppy. Furthermore, it is understood that the breeder does not guarantee against the following puppyhood ailments, or any health issues caused by the buyer: eye or ear infections, dry skin, hypoglycemia, giardia, coccidia, ear mites, UTI’s, vaginitis, umbilical hernias, food allergies, stress or diarrhea. If a life-threatening or untreatable condition is discovered by a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of purchase (from pick up) the dog may be returned for a full refund. The veterinarian must provide a written statement regarding the puppy’s health. The refund is limited to the original price and does not include any veterinary costs, shipping or delivery costs. Once the puppy leaves the breeder’s premises, the breeder is not responsible for any of the puppy’s veterinary bills. Any treatment rendered is the responsibility of the buyer. The breeder assumes no responsibility for any charges incurred by the buyer in caring for the puppy.
The Dam and Sire have passed all breed specific health testing suggested by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.
Long Term Guarantee: Breeder guarantees this puppy will not be affected by EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse), CNM (Centronuclear Myopathy), prcd-PRA (prcd form of Progressive Retinal Atrophy). If the puppy is affected by one of the above-named disease, the buyer must inform the breeder immediately and supply veterinary records to the breeder. The Breeder will be given the option to take the puppy/dog to a licensed veterinarian of their choice for examination. If the veterinarian confirms the puppy is affected, the Buyer will be eligible for a partial refund, not including any testing fees, veterinary fees or other costs. This guarantee does not include hip or elbow Dysplasia as those can be impacted by environment and/or how the puppy was raised.
BREEDING: The puppy is sold to the buyer on limited registration. Meaning if the dog was bred or sired a litter you will be unable to register the litter. The breeder will provide the necessary form for the registration to be changed to FULL for breeding purposes only after 2 years of age and the below health clearances have been completed and the puppy has received their AKC CGC and UKC SPOT plus at least two additional titles.
- OFA Hips (good or excellent)
- OFA Elbows (normal)
- OFA Eyes (normal)
- OFA Heart (clear)
Even if you do not plan to breed, at two years of age we highly suggest OFA x-rays for hip and elbow dysplasia and examinations by a board-certified ophthalmologist for eye issues. Heart can be by vet or echo. We ask that you wait until your dog is 2 years old before spaying or neutering.
Labrador Retrievers need jobs. The breeder requires the puppy/dog to achieve their AKC CGC and UKC SPOT plus at least two additional titles of your choosing, i.e. agility, nose work, dock diving, hunt test, shed hunt, rally obedience, obedience, etc. Buyer agrees to send copies of title certificates to the breeder.
Buyer agrees to contact the breeder in writing if they are unable to keep this dog for ANY reason giving breeder first right of refusal. Buyer will not sell, give away, or otherwise dispose of this dog without the breeder’s written permission. The breeder will either accept the dog on a return basis or assist the buyer in finding a suitable alternative home for the dog. This does not imply a financial commitment on the part of the breeder. The buyer agrees that this dog will never be turned over to a pound/shelter/humane society as means of disposal nor may it be donated to any company, cause, or person. If the dog is returned to the breeder, NO MONEY WILL BE REFUNDED. Breeder reserves the right to confiscate the dog at any moment, without notice, if she feels the dog is being neglected (this includes being overweight or underweight), mistreated, or if the dog has been illegally obtained. If the dog needs veterinary care immediately after being repossessed, the buyer is agreeing to refund the breeder for all appropriate veterinary costs incurred.
