Buying a Puppy from a breeder

Disreputable dog breeders, who are usually in the “puppy-farm” business just for the money, can wreak misery and death on the innocent animals that would otherwise be lifelong pets and friends.

There are some simple guidelines that, if followed, could put such people out of business, and give a dog a long happy life.

Trading Standards recommendations for buying a puppy

  • Be wary of outlets offering more than one or two breeds
  • When visiting the seller note the surroundings
  • Visit the puppy more than once
  • Ask to see the pedigree papers and ensure the breeder’s name is on the certificate
  • The breeder should want to know about you too
  • Ask to see the puppy with its Mother – be very suspicious if you can’t

Puppies bred commercially, indiscriminately and carelessly are likely to…

  • Develop disease
  • Have temperamental problems
  • Find adjusting to family life hard
  • Be difficult to housetrain
  • Suffer physical defects and have hereditary weaknesses

Think carefully before buying and do not buy the puppy because you feel sorry for it.

Dog Rescue

The Dogs Trust believe no healthy dog should be destroyed and that every dog should have a chance to lead a healthy life and be happy in a loving home.

There are many ways of finding a suitable dog and re-homing is a good choice. Dogs Trust works with you to match your requirements to the needs of the dogs. They know that choosing the right dog means happy dogs and happy owners.

About Re-homing

Thousands of dogs are accommodated every year – from cuddly puppies to older dogs full of character.

Re-homing is all about giving them a fresh start, with a family who can offer them all the love and attention they deserve and perhaps have never experienced.
