Every reasonable precaution has been taken to prevent the puppies from acquiring hereditary faults such as hip dysplasia, hereditary cataracts and heart murmurs. The Sire and Dam have hip, heart and eye clearances. Due to the unknown hereditary and environmental cause of such faults no guarantee for the puppies will be given against them. Clearances on both the Sire and Dam help to reduce the risk of developing problems in the future. Should the dog develop Hip Dysplasia (moderate or severe) and be confirmed by an OFA x-ray taken at the age 26 months, the breeder will provide a replacement puppy when one becomes available. This does NOT include bone or joint problems that may have been caused by improper activity, poor nutrition or trauma.
