ANGELS OF GOLD GOLDEN RETRIEVERS
We do not sell dogs as breeding dogs. We have a responsibility to our puppies and our dogs. As breeders, we made the decision to bring our puppies into this world. We loved them first and when they leave us we want them to have the best quality of life imaginable. This means having a very loving new family. In order to protect our puppies and their bloodlines, we sell our puppies on ‘limited registration’, which means you cannot breed as per AKC.
If at any time you cannot take care of your puppy/dog, we have first right of refusal. But you must make an attempt at some training of the puppy. There are usually classes near by or you can always check with AKC or the Golden Retriever Club Of America to find your closest club.
If we are able to sell your puppy/dog, we will return whatever money collected, if any, up to what you paid. We are here for the life of the dog, never hesitate to ask us any questions.
All dogs are to be put on k9data.com. It is a very simple website to follow.
If you decide to show AKC conformation, they do require ‘full registration’. In that case, our names will remain on the dogs registration papers as co owners and a different contract will be given
Puppies will be $2500 and the price of a health certificate if needed. We are also required to charge MN sales & use tax, which is approximately $185. We require a $500 non-refundable ( if you back out) deposit when pregnancy is confirmed. Cash only is accepted for puppies at the time of pickup.
Your puppy’s registration will have ‘Angels Of Gold’ as the prefix, the rest will be chosen by the new owner.
Pet puppies ARE REQUIRED to be spayed, not before 12 months old and after at least one heat cycle, neutered at 18-24 months with proof from veterinarian sent to seller. A penalty may be assessed for each month past requirement.
Hip/elbow dysplasia is a multifactoral disease and cannot be linked solely to a single genetic cause. Hip/elbow dysplasia is greatly affected by both environment and nutrition. It is recommended that the puppy be fed a premium, high quality puppy dog food for the first 6 months to ensure proper growth and development. This contract does not cover SAS, Subaortic Stenosis https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-pet/osteochondritis-dissecans-or-ocd-in-dogs or OCD, Osteochondritis dissecans. https://www.vscvets.com/surgery/surgery-procedures/osteochondritis-dissecans-ocd
The puppies will be sent home with a small bag of Purina Pro Plan Probiotic pyuppy. You should keep them on this for at least 6 months.
This puppy should also be raised and exercised in a way that is conducive to optimum joint health.
If for any reason an OFA report shows evidence of hip dysplasia or elbow dysplasia, on a Angels Of Gold puppy, (which MUST be done between the age of 24-26 months for contract to be in effect), the seller will replace purchased puppy with a replacement puppy as soon as one is available ,after receiving failed OFA verification and veterinarian report of spay or neuter.
Puppy will be wormed (if needed), shots, microchipped and vet checked before leaving for their new homes, health certificates (at buyers expense) also if being shipped.
Puppy will most likely be chosen by seller, with your input, so please tell us everything about yourself and what you are looking for in a dog on the puppy inquiry form. You may not know which is yours until 7-9 weeks of age if we decide to keep one and/or the stud owner chooses one and we have some going to Show/Performance homes so they can be evaluated. Those puppies will be chosen first.
Puppy should be taken to your veterinarian within 4 days arrival at their new home.
Shipping is available at owners expense
