Sales Policy and Health Guarantee
We are not responsible for accidents or neglect of your puppy. This guarantee does not state that your pup will always be healthy, only that it will be genetically healthy.
We guarantee our pups to be free from genetic illnesses for one (1) year including liver, heart, and kidney disease. If a licensed veterinarian diagnoses a genetic illness and said diagnosis is confirmed by the breeder’s veterinarian and both veterinarians certify that the illness is not curable by medication or surgery, you will receive a full refund of the purchase price of your puppy.
If your puppy dies unexpectedly and you suspect the cause was of genetic origin, an autopsy will be required to prove that the cause was genetic in origin before a refund will be considered.
In all cases, you must also show proof that the puppy you purchased from Dogwood Labradors has had regular health examinations by a licensed veterinarian, and is current on all shots, including Rabies.
Dogwood Labradors is not responsible for any of the puppy’s veterinarian bills. The only exception is if an autopsy shows genetic origin is at fault. In that case, we will assist in the cost of the autopsy in the amount of 30%.
Dogwood Labradors’ Genetic Health Guarantee does not cover your puppy's hips, even though it is a hereditary problem. It only assures that your puppy was produced from two parents with OFA Certified or OFA Prelim Certified Hips. There is no guarantee that any Labrador puppy will be free of hip dysplasia. It is a common Labrador trait and even two parents with excellent hips will produce up to 4% of puppies with some form of hip dysplasia; EXCELLENT to GOOD breedings will produce 8-10% with some form of hip dysplasia; GOOD to GOOD breedings will produce 18% with some form of hip dysplasia, and the percentages continue to rise as the ratings drop to FAIR, MILD, and MODERATE.
Changes in Life Circumstances
IF YOUR LIFE CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE AND YOU ARE UNABLE TO CARE FOR YOUR PUP AT ANYTIME IN HIS OR HER LIFE, PLEASE NOTIFY DOGWOOD LABRADORS AND WE WILL ACCEPT THE RETURN OF THE PUPPY. IN SUCH CASES, HOWEVER, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE.
Our girl Elizabeth (sire Dunkin) had 7 pups on Feb. 5: 3 black males, 2 black females and 2 yellow females.
