Highlakes Labradors Puppy Purchase Information
Our puppies are sold on a first come, first serve basis. We will only start a puppy waiting list when we know that we either have a pregnant female or actually have puppies. When we breed a litter we are breeding for ourselves and will keep as many puppies as we deem necessary to continue with our breeding program on this particular pedigree. Both sire and dam of our pups have their health clearances. Usually these health clearances go deep into the pedigree with grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. having their health clearances as well. However, this still is not a guarantee as many health issues are not created by a simple recessive gene and the fact that the parents are not affected does not prohibit them from still producing the occasional problem. At this time, the closest thing we have to an absolute is the Optigen test for Progressive Retinal Atrophy which is 99.5% accurate. This is the one disease we feel we are truly protected from.
Our pups begin their lives in our homes, and therefore are used to all the noises of a household. Later, as they get older, they begin to go outside during the day, weather permitting, and coming back into the house with their mother at night. Eventually they will be outside day and night, usually just before they are going to their new homes.
Your pup will be current on vaccinations & worming when it goes to its new home but there will still be more needed in the future. We give all vaccination information to you when you pick up your pup so you can take it to your vet. DO NOT LET YOUR VETERINARIAN VACCINATE YOUR PUPPY BEFORE IT IS DUE FOR ITS NEXT VACCINATION. THIS CAN RESULT IN ILLNESS, FOR WHICH YOU ALONE WILL BE RESPONSIBLE.
We sell all of our pet puppies on an AKC Limited registration. This means they are AKC registered dogs which cannot be used for breeding and cannot be shown in conformation shows or field trials. They can, however, be shown in obedience, agility, rally, tracking, retriever hunting trials, service dogs, and other performance events and can earn titles. If they are bred, AKC will not give a registration to the resulting puppies.
We ask that you take your puppy to a vet for a physical exam within 48 hours of receiving it. If there is anything wrong with the pup that causes you to feel you cannot keep the puppy, you may return it within 24 hours of the diagnosis with a letter from the examining Veterinarian, for a full return of your puppy price. We will not be responsible for any unauthorized vet bills.
We will take back one of our dogs at any time in its life for any reason, and in fact, we want to be your first phone call if for any reason you can no longer keep your dog. We will take the dog back and if we can resell it, will do so and then return your purchase price. Sometimes the dog might be middle aged or older and cannot be resold and in that case you would not get your purchase price returned, and we would probably keep the dog for the rest of its life as one of our house dogs. Our main goal is to know where our dogs are and that they are in good, happy homes where they are part of the family.
Our process for letting the pups go to their new homes is to critique or grade the litter at 6 to 8 wks of age and at that time they are vaccinated and microchips are assigned. We keep a record of notes on our evaluation of the pups. If we can we make a choice at that time regarding which are show quality pups and which are companion dogs, we will call the pet buyers and let them know what is available. If we cannot make a decision, we will look at the pups again at 7 or 8 wks of age. Once our decision is made, we notify the new puppy buyers and have them set an appointment to pick up their new baby. Puppies do not go to their new homes until they are at least 7 weeks of age.
We are happy to guide you throughout the dogs life with answers to your questions and help you in anyway we can. Our goal is, first and foremost, to produce dogs that are physically and temperamentally sound, and in turn, to give them the best life possible.
