Guaranteeing against hip dysplasia

For those of you who adopted your dog through a breeder, did the breeder offer a guarantee against hip dysplasia or is that something that can not be guaranteed?

Just curious.....

I don't know about in America, Denise, but here generally breeders DON'T guarantee against it. However, they say that if your dog DOES come down with any genetic disease, they will help pay the vet bills.

In Finland, however, almost ALL dogs must have their hips checked before the Finnish Kennel Club will even register any puppies from those dogs' litter.

But, I've ever heard of any breeder here GUARANTEEING that the dog would not get hip dysplasia. They can show you all the hip records of the dog's parents, parent's parents, etc., but still won't promise the dog will be hip dysplasia free. Could be different in America, though.

When I bought Chewy he came with a two year guarantee against congenital defects and hip issues. The breeder I'm looking to get my next one from has a two year guarantee as well. There is also a breeder that has a 5 year guarantee.

While issuing a guarantee is risky, a good breeder will stand behind their animals. If the appropriate testing is done and comes out clean the likelyhood of it is lessened. When you have generations of clean dogs the odds lessen even more.

I won't buy from a breeder that won't offer some form of a guarantee.

Natalie, I have been thinking of getting a dog for some time now. Yesterday, while I was playing with Oscar in my yard, Dave was talking to a guy. I was so involved with Oscar I didn't realize what was going on and before I knew it, Dave said, "Denise, look what I got". I turned around and he had a puppy in his arms, an APBT at that! She was just weaned and oh so cute! I couldn't stop kissing her. She is for sale and I got so caught up in the cuteness of the puppy, I forgot to ask about guaranteeing against hip dysplasia. Anyway, as much as I would love to adopt her, we would first have to ask the owners of our apartment and even if they said yes, no is not the right time for us to get a puppy. Primarily because Dave is working a lot of hours and I haven't been feeling 100% well lately and I simply wouldn't have the energy.
