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

Battersea Dogs Home is devoted to finding dogs  loving and permanent new homes.

A dedicated team interviews everyone who wants to offer a home to a dog  and their unique computer matching system helps them find the perfect match.

The average stay for a dog at Battersea Dogs  Home is 23 days, but some dogs end up staying  a bit longer through no fault of their own. Sometimes a dog needs an extra-special  home, with experience of their breed, temperament, or they may be unsuitable with children or other animals.

Whatever the reason, the dedicated staff here at the Dogs Home take care of them until the right owner comes along.
