HIGHLAND KENNELS WRITTEN HEALTH GUARANTEE and BUYER'S
THREE DAY GUARANTEE:
This dog is guaranteed to be in good health, to the best of my knowledge at the time of this sale,
and has had initial inoculations against distemper, hepatitis, para/parvo virus and received worming. The
buyer has three business days from day of purchase in which to have the dog checked by a licensed veterinarian,
and is urged to do so. If in this time frame, mortality should happen to the above mentioned puppy, the
cause of which is clearly hereditary in nature (this does not include presence of parasites), then
return the AKC papers and a puppy replacement/refund will be given (breeder's choice) when there is an available
comparative litter, or money refund for THREE DAY guarantee of mortality, provided a letter from the examining
veterinarian is offered as proof of life threatening illness. It is agreed and understood that any exchanges
must be made within the three day guarantee period.
The seller assumes no responsibility for this dog after leaving premises
for; medical expense, mortality, landlord’s disapproval, allergic reaction to the dog, and or disagreements with family,
behavioral-training difficulties, mistreatment of dog, accidental poisoning or trauma to dog, re-growth of dewclaws or for
any other reason, no monetary refund will be given for this puppy (other than what is stated in the three day guarantee).
ONE YEAR GUARANTEE:
This dog is also guaranteed to one year of age (12
months), against any severe and or life threatening congenital heart defect (a defect so extreme that surgery is imminent
for survival) within the first year of life. Should a severe life threatening heart defect occur, which is clearly hereditary
in nature and seriously affect the dog’s quality of life, verify to us, with stated letter's from two
licensed veterinarian’s with medical reports confirming the defect(s) and what is recommended for the health of the
dog, along with a spay/neuter verification from your vet. We may also want to converse with your veterinarian verbally and
would hope that they would provide us with complete information and medical history of the dog to satisfy our questions if
we should have any at that time. We also require you to return the AKC registration papers (if you have
FULL registration) and only then will a replacement puppy/refund be given to you after you sign the onetime replacement contract
that fulfills this one-time guarantee.
Hip dysplasia; In addition this puppy is guaranteed,
until one year of age for limited registration against severe crippling hip dysplasia, described
by the Orthopedic Foundation of America as the seventh level of dysplasia (dysplasia so extreme that surgery or euthanasia
is indicated). For this diagnosis, you must take your dog to your veterinarian and have x-rays
taken of the hips. You then must fill out a form for an OFA Preliminary Report, which your vet should have
at their office. These x-rays must be taken, dated and submitted before the dog’s
age of 12 months. If you have x-rays taken after the dog is 12 months old, then you void this contract
and no guarantees are made for a puppy replacement/refund for this dog's hips. The Orthopedic Foundation
of America will make an informed decision within the seven levels of hip conformation. Severe is what is
covered under this contract and we must see the original OFA Preliminary (Consultation) Report. If you
fail to show us all certificates of evaluations that are requested from us for this above mentioned dog within
the first year of its life, then you void this contract in lieu of Highland Labradors from any and all liability to this contract
now or in the future. You must also show proof that your dog has been spayed/neutered with a signed and
dated medical report. Also a statement from two veterinarians that this puppy is not and
never has been overweight for his/her bone structure, and you must supply medical records from your vet that shows us that
you had your puppy visits to prove what the records show of the puppy’s weight. We cannot be responsible
for your lack of care for the over growth weight of your puppy. Also show proof that the puppy has never
had past injuries that may have caused dysplasia, and no evidence that this puppy was overstressed and or over exercised (or
in the case of females) no breeding has taken place, during this important growth phase. You must also
be able to provide a time line pursuant to the age of your puppy with receipts for a quality large breed puppy food
for their hips and joints. We may also want to converse with your veterinarian verbally and would
hope that they would provide us with complete information and medical history of the dog to satisfy our questions if we should
have any at that time. We also require you to return the AKC registration papers (if you have FULL registration)
as well as show proof of that a spay/neuter procedure has been done on said dog, and only then will a replacement puppy/refund
of equal value (breeder's choice) be given when the next litter of comparative value is available to you after you sign the
onetime replacement contract that fulfills this one-time guarantee.
This is limited to a one-time replacement and no further guarantees are made. It is agreed and understood
that no money refund will be given to you for any medical expense acquired, purchase of dog, nor travel cost, or any other
costs acquired by you. It is further understood and agreed that no warranty or representation has been
made with respect to sold dog, except as set forth in writing in this agreement.
