To the best of my knowledge this puppy is in good health at the time of sale.  The buyer has 72 hours from date & time of sale in which to have the puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian.  Any guarantee is void if puppy is not examined by vet within 72 hours.  Any vaccinations or worming medicines that were given to the puppy prior to the sale were done so as a preventative step toward stopping disease and/or illness.  If Buyer’s veterinarian finds any serious genetic disorder (non-environmental) with the puppy during the examination (excludes worms, coccidiosis, parasites), the buyer will be refunded the price of the puppy listed above only, provided a letter from the examining veterinarian is offered as evidence of the puppy’s illness and the puppy is returned within the specified 72 hour period.  However, before any money will be refunded, the seller has reserved the right to first have their veterinarian inspect the puppy to verify the illness.  NOTE: The cost of any medical treatment at the time of the examination by the buyer’s veterinarian is the sole responsibility of the buyer.  NO REIMBURSEMENT WILL BE MADE OF ANY MEDICAL EXPENSES. 

HIP DISPLAYSIA: In addition this puppy is guaranteed, until 24 months of age for limited registration against severe crippling hip dysplasia, described by the Orthopedic Foundation of America as the seventh level of dysplasia (dysplasia so extreme that surgery or euthanasia is indicated).  For this diagnosis, you must take your dog to your veterinarian and have x-rays taken of the hips. These x-rays must be taken, dated and submitted before the dog’s age of 24 months.  If you fail to show us all certificates of evaluations that are requested from us for this above mentioned dog within the 24 months of its life, then you void this contract in lieu of Carter Farm Labradors from any and all liability to this contract now or in the future.  You must also show proof that your dog has been spayed/neutered with a signed and dated medical report.  Also a statement from two veterinarians that this puppy is not and never has been overweight for his/her bone structure, and you must supply medical records from your vet that shows us that you had your puppy visits to prove what the records show of the puppy’s weight.  We cannot be responsible for your lack of care for the over growth weight of your puppy.  Also show proof that the puppy has never had past injuries that may have caused dysplasia, and no evidence that this puppy was overstressed and or over exercised (or in the case of females) no breeding has taken place, during this important growth phase.  You must also be able to provide a time line pursuant to the age of your puppy with receipts for a quality puppy food for their hips and joints.  We reserve the right to converse with your veterinarian, as well as consult other veterinarians for second opinions.  We also require you to return the AKC registration papers (if you have FULL registration) as well as show proof of that a spay/neuter procedure has been done on said dog, and only then will a replacement puppy or $500 refund be given when the next litter of comparative value is available to you after you sign the onetime replacement contract that fulfills this one-time guarantee.


It is further understood and agreed that no warranty or representation has been made with respect to sold puppy, except as set forth in writing in this agreement.

This guarantee is valid only for original owner and is non-transferable.  No guarantee is made at time of sale regarding show, hunting, or breeding prospects of sold dog. 


I have read and understand the above conditions and agree to the terms as stated above.
