Problem with a Labrador Retriever seller

Received this e-mail from Seller of a Lab (USA) asking about a Labrador Retriever sellers responsibilities.

Reader's E-mail - Seller of a Lab writes:

What is a seller responsible for if an owner claims the dog has hip dysphasia and is over weight by 10 lbs plus, and only 10 months old.

Hello Seller of a Lab,

Thanks for writing and visiting All About Labradors blog.

There are various different things that sellers are responsible for. I see you had an attachment with this e-mail, but whatever it is, I can not read it. Was it a copy of a guarantee? Did you offer a guarantee?

Usually a seller with have some sort of guarantee that lists what is covered. Some will replace the Labrador Retriever, some will pay the veterinarian fees to treat the Labrador and then return to the owner, and some will pay a potion of the vet fees. Usually this is with a written statement from a licensed veterinarian stating what disease the Labrador Retriever has. There are all different terms and conditions to guarantees.

There are states with pet lemon laws, with your state being one of them:

Here is a link to your states office of the Attorney General in regards to a Pet Purchaser Rights http://www.maine.gov/ag/?r=clg&s=chap29#29.3 (this should be helpful to you).

I believe that a breeder who actually cares about Labrador Retrievers they breed, will take back a puppy for any health reason. Unfortunately, this is not the case with many. Making a profit takes precedence with some, and doing what is best for the Labrador Retriever will not matter.

Hope this helps some, and when you get a chance, please let me know what was in your attachment.

Take care of yourself,

Fay
