♥General Health Warranty:
If your Veterinarian certifies your puppy to have a debilitating illness or injury or to possess a congenital
defect within 72 hours of purchase, the cause of which is attributable to the breeder, a replacement or
refund will be given.
The health clearances completed on a breeding pair are merely predictors that the puppy will have a
LOW RATIO for genetic predisposition to developing catastrophic orthopedic or ophthalmologic
abnormalities. The scientific perspective for the many possible complex combinations of genes dictates
that there cannot be a guarantee against such genetic disorders. We, at Maple Lane Labradors, will
guarantee our puppies against hip and elbow dysplasia and CERF-able eye diseases with the following
In the event of a catastrophic debilitating condition which is determined to be of a genetic nature and not
environmentally induced or acquired and the dog cannot function for its intended purpose as a pet, we
will replace the puppy with one of similar quality and potential or refund the original purchase price
once the original dog has been returned to the breeder.
The prognosis must be that the condition is of an extreme nature that will highly impact the quality
of life and impede physical exertion from youth to the beginning of old age. If a non-specialized
Veterinarian has done the initial x-rays, the buyer agrees to a second opinion by the Breeder's
Veterinarian (cost to breeder) or an Orthopedic Veterinarian Radiologist (cost to buyer).
The following must be met for this reimbursement: receipt of OFA documentation which shows the
radiographs of hips &/or elbows were taken and submitted for evaluation between the age of 24-26
months, written statement from a certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist prior to the age of 24 months
indicating a genetic disorder has been discovered. The dog has not been allowed to become obese, that it
has not participated in prolonged strenuous exercise (such as jogging) prior to 18 months of age, that it
was not spayed or neutered before the age of one year and that the dog has never produced a litter or had
a major physical injury. Any of these factors will void any warranty.
♥The above named dog has received the first of its series of inoculations for infectious disease and has
been treated for parasites; the puppy is functionally sound.
ACCIDENTS AND OTHER ILLNESSES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS GUARANTEE.
♥The buyer agrees to take proper care of the dog throughout its life, including a fenced yard, adequate
shelter, food and water, exercise, socialization with people and dogs, crate training, and most
importantly, obedience training. The puppy shall not be allowed to run loose without supervision. The
buyer agrees to complete the series of inoculations and yearly boosters. Buyer further agrees that, if for
any reason, they are unable to keep this dog, it is not to change ownership but will be brought back to the
breeder's for re-homing.
♥Purchaser assumes full responsibility for the health care of the above named dog immediately upon
♥ Because of the variety and quality of dog foods available, and all canine illnesses are NOT covered by
vaccinations or health screenings, we require that all Maple Lane dogs/ puppies continue to take “Nu-Vet
Plus Canine” supplement. This is to keep their immune system strong and prevent illness. This
nutritional supplement is only available through veterinarian or breeder recommendation, so we receive a
monthly report of who is receiving this product. We reserve the right to void this health guarantee if you
choose not to keep this dog/ puppy on “Nu-Vet Plus Canine”
♥If for any reason the New Owner is unable to care for the above named dog, THE DOG MUST BE
RETURNED TO THE BREEDER or the breeder must be contacted if the above named dog is given or sold
to another party other than the breeder. Resale of this dog will terminate the terms of this contract. The
breeder will possibly transfer this guarantee to the new owners if they fill out a adoption application and
are approved by the breeder. The breeder is not obligated to transfer the guarantee.
♥If the dog is returned to the breeder ownership must be transferred to the Breeder at time of return.
♥The New Owner understands that the Breeder will try to recoup some of the New Owner's original
purchase price, but NO MONETARY REIMBURSEMENT IS IMPLIED OR GUARANTEED. The ultimate
goal will be a suitable home for the above named dog.
THIS GUARANTEE IS NOT TRANSFERABLE WITHOUT BREEDERS' WRITTEN CONSENT.
