andHealth Guarantee We guarantee this puppy to be in good health at the time of the sale. The buyer has 5 days to take the puppy to their veterinarian. If the buyer is not satisfied with their new puppy it can be returned within one week, at the buyers expense, for a replacement puppy of equal value or the full refund of the purchase price. Replacement Puppy Warranty 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 the “OFA”. No dog over 26 months of age will be covered. We will only honor “OFA” 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 OFA, this portion of the warranty is Null and Void. The puppy buyer must send “A&W Goldens”, documents from OFA stating that the dog is dysplasia. The dysplasia dog must be spayed or neutered and documents from the vet sent to “A&W Goldens”. At that time the breeder will replace the dog with a 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 buyer 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 OFA, 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. For a fee, you can purchase AKC Full Registration. Buyers Responsibilities: The buyer must complete all the required health clearances, (heart, eyes, hips & elbows) and DNA tests by 26 months of age and send copies to “A&W Goldens”, for their records.
