Wagners Retrievers offers the following guarantee to the original buyer only.
We guarantee the puppy to be free of PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) for up to 24 months of age. If you suspect your puppy has PRA, it must be verified by a certified Canine Ophthalmologist with CERF.
We guarantee the puppy to be free of hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia for up to 24 months of age. If your veterinarian suspects a dysplasia problem, the x-ray showing this condition must be verified by the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals). This x-ray must be done before 24 months of age.
We guarantee the puppy to be free from EIC and CNM. If your veterinarian suspects a problem, certfication of the disorder must be presented from DDC or Univ of Mich. VDL.
If any of these conditions are verified, and the owner wants to keep the dog, we will refund half of the purchase price upon receiving a veterinarian's letter confirming that the dog has been spayed or neutered. Otherwise, the breeder has the option of either refunding the entire purchase price, or replacing the dog with a puppy of comparable breeding when available. The first puppy will have to be returned to Wagners Retrievers with its AKC paperwork. In any case, all veterinary, diagnostic, return, and replacement costs will be the owner's responsibility.
These guarantees are dependent upon demonstration that the puppy has received adequate care and nutrition. Anything that affects the development or well-being of the puppy, such as abuse, neglect, trauma (i.e. jumping in the air for frisbees), or being used for breeding will void these guarantees.
