Our Warranty
Testimonial

Hi Mr. & Mrs. Gordon,

A year ago today we picked up our black lab puppy we named "Bailey". Her parents are Pepper & Abby, and she was one of the last two puppies from the litter. She's the best addition to our family and has the sweetest temperament. She loves to play at the beach and swim in the ocean. Our 12 year old daughter adores her. Thanks for breeding such great dogs.

At Luv My Labs, we make every possible effort to produce sound, beautiful, and happy puppies, and we are proud of the quality puppies we produce.  We wish we could offer guarantees that all of our puppies will be perfect, but unfortunately in dog breeding, as in life, there are no guarantees.  We have been breeding Labradors since the mid 1970s, and we stand behind our breeding program, and, therefore, we offer the following warranties:

To be covered by Luv My Labs Warranty:

  1. The dog must be AKC registered and bear the prefix_luvmylabs
  2. The dog must be registered in the name of the original purchaser.
  3. The dog must not have whelped or sired a litter.

HIP, EYE, AND GENETIC ABNORMALITY WARRANTY

Puppies are warranted against crippling Canine Hip Dysplasia (CHD), Progressive Retinal Atrophy, and other genetic abnormalities, which make the dog unsuitable as a pet, up to 12  months of age.

  1. If you suspect your dog has CHD or a similar crippling orthopedic problem, follow this procedure:
    1. Notify us by phone or letter
    2. Have X-rays taken of the affected area(s) and have your veterinarian submit them to the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals,  or similar independent certifying body for evaluation.
    3. Send us a copy of the OFA/OVC (or similar) report.
    4. Send us a letter from your Veterinarian stating that the dog is not now, and has not to his/her knowledge been in the past, significantly overweight.
       
  2. If a Board-Certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist determines that your dog has Progressive Retinal Atrophy or similar blinding ophthalmic disease, and provided this determination is confirmed by electroretinography (ERG) (if appropriate), send a copy of the ERG and Ophthalmologist's report to us, and follow the instructions in paragraph 4 below.
     
  3. If your veterinarian determines that  your dog has an inherited debilitating defect or abnormality, send us a letter, signed by your Veterinarian, indicating the nature of the defect or abnormality and stating that in the Veterinarian's opinion this problem is genetically caused, and seriously and negatively affects the quality of the dog's life or otherwise prevents the dog from being an acceptable pet or companion.  Euthanasia, Paragraph 4-a below, is the only option for a  replacement puppy. 
     
  4. To qualify for a replacement puppy if preferred and available, and at the discretion of Luv My Labs, one of the following conditions must be met:
    1. The dog must be humanely euthanized by your veterinarian and a letter from the vet stating that this has been done must be sent to us, or
    2. The dog's registration certificate(s) must be returned to us, signed on the back returning ownership to us.  If you have not already done so, the dog must be sterilized and a letter from your Veterinarian stating that this has been done must be sent to us.  The dog itself need not be returned.
  5. I have read and understood the above warranty:
