Your new puppy is guaranteed to be virus free for two business days from the date the puppy is received. Parasites are a common problem in animals, especially young animals, and are easily treated; therefore these are excluded from this guarantee. A visit with your own vet within two business days 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. (If any parasites are found, treatment is the purchaser's responsibility.)
This dog has a guarantee 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 eyes will pass a CERF test at 12 months of age, or we will apply the full purchase price of your puppy toward the price of a replacement puppy of your choice, from a future Northern Lakes Labradors' litter. (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. If replacement puppy has a lower adoption fee, no refund will be given. OFA Certification must be completed before 25 months of age. CERF Test must be obtained by 13 months of age. NO REFUND WILL EVER BE GIVEN. Replacement puppies will be considered "as is" and will not be guaranteed. (i.e. only one replacement puppy will be provided.)
To qualify for a replacement puppy, all of the following conditions must be met:
Dog has been registered with the AKC, and has been micro-chipped 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 and microchip number.
You received a statement from the OFA, stating that your dog received a grade of moderate to severe for Hip Dysplasia. Or from CERF stating the presence of Retinal Dysplasia or Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA).
