A&W Goldens, the breeder, warranties this puppy against hip dysplasia and hereditary eye disease for the first two years of age that causes the dog to be nonfunctional or unbreedable. The warranty only applies if x-rays are taken before the dog reaches 26 months of age and evaluated by PennHip. No dog over 26 months of age will be covered. We will only honor PennHip readings. If they diagnose that the dog is dysplasia then the buyer will qualify for a replacement puppy. If the puppy has been bred before the x-rays have been evaluated by PennHip, this portion of the warranty is Null and Void. The puppy buyer must send “A&W Goldens”, documents from PennHip stating that the dog has dysplasia and copies of the x-rays. The seller may require the affected dog to be returned to “A&W Goldens” and MUST be returned in good order and health, or require additional evaluations of the seller's choosing. At that time the breeder will consider replacement options: Ranging, but not guaranteeing, from a full or partial refund or new puppy of like quality (when available). If the owner of the dysplasia dog does not want to deal with the dog it may be returned to the breeder. Hereditary eye disease that causes the dog to be nonfunctional or unbreedable: The dog must be examined by a certified veterinarian ophthalmologist by 26 months of age. No dog over 26 months is covered. Puppy buyers must provide “A&W Goldens”, with the exam results if there is a hereditary eye problem in order to qualify for a replacement puppy. The seller does not pay any veterinary fees, such as PennHip, CERF, shipping of the puppy or dog or any other associated costs. Right of First Refusal In the event the puppy buyer cannot keep, wishes to sell, transfer ownership or dispose of the dog, the breeder is to be given the “FIRST RIGHT” to buy back the dog/puppy at a reasonable purchase price. Under no circumstances is the puppy or dog to end up in a rescue, pound, human society, etc. All registration forms and clearances must be returned with the dog. This contract is only valid with the original purchaser of the puppy and is not transferable. We sell our puppies on “Limited Registration”, which means the puppy/dog cannot be bred. Buyers Responsibilities: The abbreviation of “AW’s” be put before the dog’s registration name. Puppy must remain on NuVet Plus and NuJoint Plus supplements for the first two years of their life. NuVet is not available in store and requires an ORDER CODE when you order. Our order code is: 61004. Puppy/Dog weight must always have remained within 10% of ideal weight in relation to age. Puppy is NOT to go up or down flights of stairs on a regular basis, jump to or from elevated positions (furniture, beds, ect.) until 12 months of age. In an effort to be a responsible breeder, we request that you contact us with any health issues that your vet feels may be hereditary. Spay/Neuter Puppy is to NEVER be used for breeding and must be spayed/neutered by a licensed Veterinarian between the ages of 20 months of age and 26 months of age. A copy of the receipt must be sent to A&W Goldens as proof. Spaying/Neutering prior to 20 months will void all warranties. If not spayed/neutered after 26 months of age, you must contact A&W Goldens, in writing, explaining your reasons for not doing so. If A&W Goldens feel your reasons are iniquity or have not been provided your reasons, A&W Goldens will repossess ownership of the dog.
