How to find a pup/dog
« on: May 25, 2004, 08:59:16 AM »
This is a subject I do get a lot of questions about.  My reply is see http://www.dogclub.co.uk/advice/pups.php

To save you the trouble of going to that page, here it is:

I can not give full advice on every breed, but I can give advice on where to look in general.

The best source for finding a breeder with pups is the kennel club www.the-kennel-club.org.uk. They have a form that can be filled in on line, which can be hard to find so try www.the-kennel-club.org.uk/registration/puppypackform.asp to go direct to their puppy pack. NEW - I have found out that you can now get a list of breeders with puppies for sale on line at the kennel club. Follow the link www.the-kennel-club.org.uk click dog register at the top of the page, then on the left hand menu 'Puppy sales list'. After reading the page click search at the bottom. If it is your first time here you will need to register. Once registered or logged on you will be able to see the list.

If you are looking for a rescue then have a look at www.dogpages.org.uk as I think they are the most comprehensive UK rescue site.

The next port of call would be the breed clubs listed on my site. These people are in contact with the breed every day and so will know where to find a breeder with a suitable dog. These people also make an excellent point of contact for the breed rescue, if there is one. They can also give breed specific advice.

You may wish to by pass this and go straight to a breeder, again listed on my site. If you do this make sure you are happy with the breeder that you deal with, may be speak to a couple of them.

The above is my advice to all who are looking for a dog. I am sure that if you have reached this stage you have researched the breed and are only looking for a point of contact for the breed. If not go back and do some research on the breed to ensure that it has the right characteristics for you. Try www.waltham.com/dogs/select_a_dog.html or www.petplanet.co.uk/petplanet/select/main.htm to see if the breed is a good match for you. These are only guides but give food for thought.

The above is standard response to requests for details on dogs. If this is not appropriate to your circumstances or you would like to add to this advice please feel free to drop me a e-mail.

Hi,

have you thought about breed atall ?

have a look round any local rescues that have foster homes instead of kennels that way you can sometimes find dogs which are currently fostered with kids / cats / small furries.

www.wiccaweys.co.uk  for BC's  (and yes - some will live with pet rabbits - I know one who does !!)

there are loads of other places though, the only other one i know is a lurcher one and that might be asking a little much ;)

If you are looking for Neapolitan Mastriff's contact Neapolitan Mastiff Club GB, These are Fantastic Loyal dog's , But I wouldn't recommend them to a novice owner. They are great family dog's, they don't need a lot of exercise and  extremely funny!!! The downside to them is the slobber, snoring and breaking wind!!! ( Not alway's in that order) We sometimes have puppies available, and only have Blue's.

Hi I'm a new member and I'm trying to find a good breeder of Australian silky terriers somewhere in Lancashire. I already have a male Australian terrier(TAZ) who's just over 1 year old, I don't want it for breeding I just want a companion for Taz.

Thanxs Debra.(taz's mum)   :)
