Blue Ridge Labradoodles - Puppy Health Guarantee


State of South Carolina Rules and Regulations govern all warranties and guarantees. 

  • Length of Guarantee: Blue Ridge Labradoodles will guarantee your puppy against all life threatening, hereditary defects, including mild to severe hip dysplasia (detailed below) until the age of 24 months. (For an extended guarantee option see details at the end of the contract.)

  • Current Health: Puppies sold by Blue Ridge Labradoodles (Seller) are honestly represented and evaluated as accurately as possible. All puppies have seen a veterinarian between the age of 6 weeks and 8 weeks and been found free of intestinal parasites. Upon going home at 8 weeks, your puppy will have had at least his/her first puppy shot (D2APPv) and two rounds of de-worming treatment. In order to verify the good health of the puppy, Buyer must take the puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 7 days of the receipt of puppy purchase.

  • Spay/Neuter Agreement: See contract for details.

  • Details of Hip Dysplasia Agreement:


A.  If the dog is diagnosed by Orthopedic Foundation of Animals (OFA) or Penn Hip as being moderately or severely dysplastic on or before 24 months of age, the Seller must submit a copy of the OFA report to the breeder.  

B.  A veterinarian cannot make this diagnosis and the dog must be sedated when the radiograph is taken.  

C.  If the dog has suffered any serious injury, or veterinarian states the dog has been over-fed for its height and size, then this guarantee becomes null and void. 

D.  Concerning reimburesement for medical procedures, Blue Ridge Labradoodles will pay up to amount of the purchase of the puppy, or a replacement puppy of equal value can be made if Buyer so chooses. 

  • Original Purchaser: This health guarantee is only applicable to the original Buyer. If the puppy has been re-homed, this guarantee becomes null and void.

  • Specific Conditions: Buyer understands that the following slight genetic defects are not considered serious or life-threatening and therefore are not covered: umbilical hernia, un-descended testicle, kidney/bladder infection, under-bite or over-bite, Grade 1 luxating patella. Buyer understands that replacement option is only valid when health problems are attributed to a heredity problem and not due to accident or contagious and/or other illness.

  • In Case of a Refund: If a refund of money paid for puppy or replacement of like puppy, when one becomes available, is deemed necessary, in no case shall monetary refund exceed original price paid for said puppy. Under no circumstances will Seller reimburse shipping, delivery or optional training charges.
