LIMITED WARRANTY OF GOOD HEALTH
The parties each acknowledge that there are inherent risks involved in buying a purebred dog, even one with proper testing, certification and good breeding. Seller represents and warrants, however, that reasonable precautions have been taken by Breeder to prevent the Puppy from acquiring hereditary defects of hips, elbows, eyes, heart and thyroid. Never the less, due to known or unknown hereditary and genetic tendencies or weaknesses in purebred dogs, which are beyond Seller’s control, Seller makes no guarantee that the Puppy will be free of these genetic tendencies/weaknesses throughout its lifetime. In the event, however, that the Puppy is, within the applicable Warranty Period set forth in this Paragraph, diagnosed by a board certified specialist as being affected by one of the above defects *hips, elbows, eyes and heart only), the seller shall, upon Buyer’s written request and verification of such diagnosis, but at the Seller’s option, either take the Puppy back, with AKC registration papers, and replace it as is soon as is reasonable and practical for Seller to do so, but within eighteen months (18 months) from the date of its return, with a puppy from another breeding (determined in the good faith opinion of Seller to be of equal value); or , take the puppy back and refund to the Buyer the amount of the Purchase Price for the Puppy, less the amount of nonrefundable deposit and a portion of the Purchase Price attributable to training, and less of all transportation costs. All costs of diagnosis, related medical or care expenses, and any other costs or expenses related to the Puppy (including the cost of transportation to return the Puppy to Seller) shall be born solely by the Buyer. Seller shall not be responsible for any other damages or liabilities associated with the Puppy, it purchase or subsequent ownership use or treatment.
SELLER FURTHER SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS AND EXCLUDES ALL CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING (BUT NOT LIMITED TO) LOSS OF AFFECTION, COMPANIONSHIP, MEDICAL, LEGAL, OR OTHER COSTS OR EXPENSES, LOSS PROFITS, AND EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, RELATED IN ANY WAY TO THE PURCHASE OR OWNERSHIP OF THE PUPPY. SELLER ALSO SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDES ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, AND WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE.
Except as otherwise specifically set forth herein, Seller makes no other warranties whatsoever, whether express or implied.
If a refund is determined by the Seller as the best means of compensation under the Limited Warranty of Good Health and all other requirements have been met by the Buyer under this Warranty, then Seller has up to One Hundred Twenty (120) days from the date all requirements were met by the Buyer to make this refund.
Hips: 24 months from the date of the Puppy’s birth.
Elbows: 12 months from the date of Puppy’s birth.
Eyes: 12 months from the date of Puppy’s birth.
Heart: 12 months from the date of Puppy’s birth, such that the Puppy dies from a congenital heart defect within such one year period.
Buyer agrees and understands that this Limited Warranty of Good Health is condition upon the Buyer’s full and timely compliance with all of the guidelines, terms and conditions listed in this Agreement.
Further Health Disclosures and Limitations for Qualification under Limited Good Health Guarantee:
Large breed dogs, such as English Golden Retrievers, have a higher potential for developing structural disorders such as dysplasia. However, with the use of careful and selective breeding practices, such as having breeding parents OFFA Certified for the hips and elbows this risk can be reduced. Nevertheless, the possibility of hip/elbow dysplasia cannot always be fully eliminated, especially if certain environmental precautions are not taken. For instance, the following conditions must be met in order to qualify for the Limited Good Health Guarantee under this agreement.
Other Genetic or Environmental Conditions/Diseases:
Seller/Breeder shall provide Buyer with AKC (American Kennel Club) paperwork for the Puppy. The Puppy is being sold on Limited AKC Registration unless otherwise noted in the puppy purchase agreement, which means that the Puppy is being sold as a pet and companion animal. A dog with Limited Registration is registered with the AKC but no litters produced by said dog are eligible for AKC registration. Dogs purchased with Limited Registration may not be entered into breed competitions at dog shows. However, they may compete in all other AKC events and are still eligible to receive their AKC Canine Good Citizen Award.
Buyer agrees to refrain from breeding the Puppy, either intentionally or unintentionally. If a mating does take place with the Puppy prior to the expiration of the Limited Good Health Warranty and any other warranty of health provided herein, said Warranty shall become entirely ineffective, and no warranty whatsoever regarding the health of the Puppy shall be given by the Seller.
Nevertheless, in the event that Buyer applies to and is granted breeding rights for the Puppy, with prior written consent of the Seller and the AKC, then Buyer agrees to follow the Code of Ethics for the Golden Retriever Club of America. Seller does not, however, guarantee in any way the breeding performance or capability of the Puppy, nor does the Seller warrant that the Puppy will pass the required health certifications or that the puppy will possess or employ the required reproductive capacity.
