Buying a Puppy from a breeder

Puppies are adorable bundles of wagging tails, soft eyes and warm puppy kisses that pull at your heartstrings, begging you to take them home. As difficult as it may sometimes be, the choice of a puppy should not be made on the spur of the moment. Doing so has often resulted in the acquisition of a dog that does not meet the expectations of his owner. Many times these dogs are eventually resold and, unfortunately, some end up in the pound. Indeed, this is not the fault of the poor puppy; the uneducated owner is to blame.

Before buying a puppy, talk to several owners about the breed you are interested in, gather information and make an informed choice. Each breed was developed for a specific function and, as a result, their personality and traits may not match your lifestyle. Be sure to become completely familiar with the breed you are interested in before deciding to buy a puppy. Remember, your puppy is depending on you to care for and love him for life.

Dog Rescue

Every year the RSPCA re-homes around 70,000 animals – many of these are dogs – often these dogs are unwanted pets that have been callously dumped or victims of cruelty.  In many cases dog and puppies were removed from their homes and taken to RSPCA animal centres to be looked after until they were well enough to be re-homed. The Society is constantly amazed at the lack of love and respect some owners have for their dogs.

Finding an animal to re-home

Unfortunately, they are not currently able to give details of all the dogss in need of new homes online.

If you are interested in re-homing a dog or puppy, pay a visit to your local RSPCA animal centre – or you can view animals at RSPCA Block Fen or Gonsal Farm Animal Centres online.

At any one time, the RSPCA has hundreds of dogs and puppies across the UK looking for new homes.
