Our Warranty

Your new puppy is sold as pet quality only, with no guarantees regarding color, shade and/or size. No promises are given that he/she will qualify as a breeder, show dog or as a hunting dog.
Your new puppy is warranted to be virus free for 48 hours from the time the puppy is received. Parasites are a common problem in animals, especially young animals, and are easily treated; therefore, these are excluded from this warranty. A visit with your own vet within 48 hours is required, including a fecal exam, to confirm the health of your new puppy, and establish a relationship with him/her and your new puppy right from the start. Neglecting to properly feed, care for or administer any medications recommended by the breeder or your vet will completely void this warranty in its entirety. Genetic defects, verified by a licensed veterinarian, are fully warranted until your puppy is 12 months of age.
This dog also has a warranty that the hips will not receive a grade of moderate or severe for Hip Dysplasia at 24 months of age from the OFA, and that his/her elbows and eyes will pass an OFA certification at 12 months of age, or after returning your puppy to us, at your expense, we will either apply the full purchase price of your puppy toward the price of a replacement puppy of your choice, from a future Our Lovable Labs
litter.  If you choose to keep your puppy we will reimburse you for up to 50% of your purchase price towards any vet bills required to correct your puppy’s situation. Vet reports and paid receipts will be required to receive this refund. (Replacement puppy will be provided when available, or should you choose to wait, must be received within 12 months of returning dog to us.) If the replacement puppy has a higher
adoption fee, you will be responsible for the difference. Should the replacement puppy have a lower adoption fee, no refund will be given .
OFA Certification must be completed before 25 months of age for hips or 12 months of age for elbows and eyes. Minor imperfection such as umbilical cord hernias, undescended testicles, dew claws that grew back, etc., are not covered under this warranty. To qualify for a replacement puppy or up to 50% reimbursement for paid vet bills, all of the following conditions must be met:
1.Dog has been registered with the AKC and has been microchipped within 10 days of purchase. We can provide this chip for an additional $55, or you may have it done at your own vet’s office and send us a copy of the dated receipt for the microchip implantation, within ten days of receiving your puppy.
2.Dog must NOT have been spayed or neutered before he/she turns one year of age!! Doing so will completely void your warranty.
3.You received a statement from the OFA, stating that your dog received a grade of moderate to severe for Hip Dysplasia or stating the presence of Retinal Dysplasia or Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA).
4.Dog has never been bred, even if puppies were not produced or were not registered if produced.
5.Dog and AKC papers are returned to us. If you choose to keep your dog, he/she must be spayed or neutered, and original AKC papers must first be returned to us. You must include signed statement from the vet with the date the spay/neuter was performed.
6.There must be no signs of injury, abuse, neglect, dog is not overweight , underweight and has not been used in agility, running, jumping or over exercised during their growth period of 24 months. Any signs of the above will void this warranty.
7.Puppy was sold as a pet only with Limited AKC papers . If you chose to upgrade to FULL AKC Registration with your puppy, then he/she is only covered against contagious viruses, excluding parasites, for 48 hours from purchase. Purchase at your own risk.
Our Lovable Labs will not be responsible for any travel/shipping expenses (returning or receiving replacement puppy), vet, OFA, CERF or any other expenses incurred by you, the purchaser. Replacement puppy will be considered final; no warranty will be given on replacement puppy.
