Before bringing your beloved puppy home, it's important that the puppy is over 8 weeks of age. Puppies still require their biological mothers before they are let go to their new home. This period of 8 weeks allows the pup to be socialised correctly, their personality formed and be taught learnt behaviours.
If you’re suspicious that the puppy is being sold before 8 weeks of age, then please report them to us.

By law, your dog will need to be microchipped. Your dog's microchip forms part of their permanent form of identification. It is vitally important that your details are kept up-to-date; so that you're able to be contacted, should your dog, unfortunately, go missing.
The implantation of the microchip is a simple process. The chip will always be placed around the neck of the dog.
Since 6th April 2016, it's now compulsory that all dogs over 8 weeks old must be microchipped and the seller's information details are registered on the database. Microchipping is the responsibility of the breeder and they must have all the correct information updated on the database before the puppy or dog is adopted or bought.
You must make sure you receive the microchip documentation with the chip number and then arrange to change the microchip details into your name.
Puppies are safe from majority of infections for the first few weeks of them being born. From being a young pup their immunity is passed on from their biological mothers milk. However, this changes when they reach the age of eight weeks old.
All puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first between 8-10 weeks of age and the 2nd vaccination 2 weeks later around the age of 10-12 weeks. Older dogs may also need booster vaccinations and this is normally recommended by the vet. It's important that you check with the seller what vaccinations the puppy or dog has had and ask for the relevant paperwork. It's worth noting that puppies should have had their first vaccination before they leave their mother. If the seller has not provided a vaccination plan, then this becomes your responsibility to make an appointment with the vet for both vaccinations. A puppy needs to have vaccinations 7 days before allowing them to interact with the outside.
The cost of your puppies vaccinations will vary depending on what type of dog breed they are; normally they cost in the region of £30 to £60. This cost is minor in comparison to the life threatening diseases they can catch should they not be vaccinated correctly.
Neutering your pet is an important decision that should be made very early on in the puppies early years. Male dogs are neutered around the age of six to seven months and female dogs are normally spayed around the age of six months old.
Neutering your pet is a great idea if you’ve decided against your dog from having puppies in the future and has many health benefits.
The process is always carried out under general anesthetic. As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks involved and if you have any concerns you should consult your vet before. Your dog will have some slight discomfort after but can be easily nursed back to their normal selves with some love, care and any medication prescribed by the vet.
KC Registered: No
If the following advert stipulates that the puppy or dog is KC Registered, this means the dog has been registered with the Kennel Club. Registration with the Kennel Club allows you access to lots of information and advice on pet welfare, training, breeding and many other pet welfare subjects.
With this, the seller should provide you with the pedigree certificate which shows all of the dog's details and the dogs lineage and ancestors. It is your responsibility to ask the seller for a copy of this certificate before buying or adopting the puppy or dog. It's worth considering to check the documentation and phoning the Kennel Club to verify the registration.
Being part of the Kennel Club also allows you to show your dog and compete in many events throughout the country.
If this advert indicates no registration with the Kennel Club, this will mean that the puppy or dog will not come with a pedigree certificate from the Kennel Club.
I am proud to introduce our ten week old 'bullmastaff' / 'Staffordshire bullmastiff' pup - who is looking for her forever home.
I cannot upload any other photos due to my handset, I have taken a couple as it lets me access my camera but she is asleep at the moment so if you want any more pictures please feel free to contact me.
She did originally have a new loving home lined up but unfortunately the new owner suffered unforseen family events and as such has prevented her from going.
Mum is our gorgeous white and black staffy called Princess and dad is our very proud bullmastiff Apollo. Mum and dad are both young, fit and healthy - and as they are our family pets both can be seen with her and a couple of other pups in our home.
The price of the her reflects what I have spent in order to ensure princess stayed a good weight whilst carrying and then her feeding them, along with costs of vet, food, equipment, etc.
She will go to her new home with the following:
wormed + 2 months treatment,
flea treated + 2 months treatment,
first vaccine administered and second vaccine paid for,
Full vet health check and certificate,
Almost toilet trained.
She will also come with a full explanation as to when she will need her final injection, future worm and flea treatment and a general bit of info regarding feeding, routine, etc.
She is a fit, healthy, amazing puppy who loves playing. She is toileting outside and eating fresh meat and vegetables along with puppy food; she has a full clean bill of health to date.
She will be medium-large when fully grown. Heavy, muscular and solidly built and will have the combined power of both breeds meaning she could be a handful unless trained correctly and under proper control at all times.
Both breeds (staffy and bullmastiff) are exceptionally powerful so the she will need consistent training from an early age to ensure a well-mannered adult.
Neither breed responds well to impatience or negativity so firm reward based training is the way to go.
Staffys are the ONLY breed listed as totally reliable nanny dogs in their breed standard by the Kennel Club. But both of these breeds are affectionate, loyal, calm and gentle they consider themselves guardians of the family and adore children. As with any dog, you should teach your children how to behave with her and vice versa.
A Bullmastaff is a fantastic family dog. They are adaptable and with enough exercise and space will happily live an apartment. They love their families but like all dogs they do not do well at home all day alone.
They also do not cope with the heat very well so always make sure they have a cool place to relax.
For this reason she would ideally suit a family or those who already own a dog - especially those with previous experience of larger breeds.
She is growing up in a house with children and other small animals so they will be well socialised.
She is a true loving family member and we will be sad to see her and the others go; as such I would require some background on yourself before I will allow her to leave for her new forever home. This may seem quite blunt but as a responsible dog owner and lover of animals I would expect the new owner should have no issues with this.
