**Non-Breeding Agreement / Guarantee**
Although no breeder can truly “guarantee” that a dog will be free from hereditary disorders, we DO guarantee that we have researched pedigrees and health clearances to the best of our abilities, and we can guarantee that we breed only healthy and sound dogs.
Neverest Labs, uses only sound breeding stock to lessen the occurrence of defects considered to be hereditary. While we cannot "guarantee" that your dog will be free of genetic defects, we do guarantee that both parents were reported to be free of hip dysplasia and hereditary eye diseases at the time of the breeding. Copies of those reports will be available. Here are some hints to help you understand and avoid some of these problems.
Dysplasia: both hip and elbow dysplasia are influenced by hereditary factors. Note that nutritional and environmental factors also play a role in joint health. Poor nutrition and excess weight can contribute to these disorders, as can injury. Therefore, the new owner assumes part of the responsibility for the orthopedic health of their dog. As a condition of sale and guarantee, you agree to feed a good quality dog food / canine diet, and you agree to keep the pup in good physical condition by allowing him or her to exercise at will. You further agree to monitor the pup/growing dog’s weight to ensure that s/he does not become overweight. We require that you only feed your puppy the brands of dog food listed puppy fact sheet (to be emailed to you 2 week before you pick up your puppy).
Monitor your puppy to make sure it receives proper exercise but does not get injured. Over or under exercising your puppy can negatively impact its health. Do not allow jumping on and off of furniture or stairs. Also, keep the puppy off of slippery or damp flooring. Your puppy will benefit from regular walks and from play sessions in your yard. Avoid strenuous exercise (including long walks) and do not jog your dog until he is at least 18 months old. Although “agility” is a fun sport to be involved with and offers an opportunity for team work with your dog, it is well documented that jumping can do major damage to growing joints, therefore you should not participate in “jumping” activities with your dog until s/he has reached at least 18 months old (this includes jumping into and out of vehicles). Do not allow your puppy to roughhouse with larger or older dogs to avoid injury.
Eye Problems can be hereditary, congenital or an acquired condition resulting from a virus or accident. Some eye abnormalities have little or no effect on the dog's vision while others can cause blindness.
Incorrect bites include undershot, overshot or wry mouthed malocclusions. Most incorrect bites cause little or no problem for the dog. Do not play "tug of war" with your puppy as there is a possibility of damaging their teeth or jaw alignment.
Neverest Labrador Retrievers are registered with the American Kennel Club. Our companion puppies are sold with AKC limited registration (non-breeding). If you register your puppy with AKC, the puppies name MUST start with NEVEREST. If this is not done the health guarantee will be void. When the puppies go to their new homes their vaccinations and worming schedules are up to date and they have been microchipped for identification.
We suggest that a puppy buyer take the new puppy to their own veterinarian within 7 days to be examined. If, FOR ANY REASON, the veterinarian is not happy with the puppy, we will replace the puppy upon the return of the puppy.
If your puppy / dog is diagnosed with debilitating AND hereditary, hip or elbow dysplasia before the age of 26 months, and proof (proof is defined as the official OFA report. We can also request a second opinion at the buyers expense, as well as all medical records, for review by our veterinarians) is received (within 1 week of original diagnosis) as well as a spay or neuter certificate, you have the option of a replacement puppy. Shipping / transport costs will not be reimbursed. Debilitating hip and elbow dysplasia, for our purposes, shall be defined as grade II or III elbow dysplasia, moderate to severe hip dysplasia).
If at any time in the puppies life you are unable to keep him or her, you agree to contact us, (we have the 1st right of refusal) so we can assist you in finding a new home. We always want to know where our puppies / dogs are throughout their lifetimes.
By signing below you are acknowledging that you have read this document in it’s entirety and agree to the terms of this contract, including agreeing to spay or neuter the pup prior to him or her being bred / producing puppies and this must be done by the age of 2 years (with proof sent to seller) or seller will reclaim dog with no refund.
