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.
Age: 8 Wks 1 Days

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 have available 4 stunning F1b Jack-a-poo puppies, ready to go to their forever homes on the weekend of 18th/19th August 2018.
I am an experienced hobby breeder with involvement in a variety of breeds over the years; however, due to my health I now only breed 1 or 2 litters a year of the small breed variety. Nevertheless, I pride myself on the good breeding and housekeeping practices I follow. I believe that the good management of the parents is the key to ensuring both the health and temperament and overall quality of my puppies. That said, the most important aspect of good dog management is ensuring my dogs are happy, healthy and loved.
These puppies were born in the home and have continued to be reared in the home, around people and many dogs of different breeds and ages, in addition to the normal household activities and noises you would expect.
These puppies have been specifically bred for temperament and build and to this end have been bred from carefully selected parents. Both parents are excellent examples of the breed. The puppies are already displaying wonderful temperament characteristics. They are extremely affectionate and gentle but don’t be fooled, if you stand still for too long your toes or trousers are fair game, and they love nothing better than to climb all over the ‘hoo-mans’ to play and give kisses and cuddles.
The puppies are ¼ Jack & ¾ Poo and have stunning thick coats with beautiful soft fur. As you can see from the photos, the puppies, have a ‘teddy-bear’ look to them; making them even more adorable. Due to the bloodlines, the puppies will be low to none moulting and based on historical mating from these bloodlines, the pups will likely be of small build with short legs as adults.
The Dam, a very fluffy/scruffy, black short legged F1 Jack-a-Poo, was bred by me. Her mum, puppy’s Grandma, is still with me and Grandma and a number of other maternal relatives are available for you to meet, when you come to meet the puppies and Mum..
The Sire is a KC registered Apricot Toy Poodle who is DNA tested Clear/Normal for prcd-PRA and stands at about 12 inches/30 cms. Photos and details of his pedigree and health certificate are available to see at the time of viewing (copies supplied in Puppy Pack). The Sire is not available to view with the puppies as I used a proven stud dog from a local reputable breeder. I have used this Sire previously and the feedback from the puppy’s owners to date has been exceptionally good. He is particularly praised for his puppy’s gorgeous coats.
The puppies have enjoyed a good well balanced start in life and during their first 8 weeks as well as being treated for worms and fleas in line with veterinary guidelines, they have been well socialised with people of all ages and many other dogs.
It is important that prospective owners understand what is involved with owning a puppy, have appropriate accommodation and the right level of commitment. To this end, I insist that all prospective owners visit the puppy and Mum in their own environment.
When the puppies leave, they will have had their first injection, been micro-chipped and will come with a generous puppy pack, including a scent blanket and food, free insurance and a lifetime of support and advice.
The puppies are now ready to be viewed and a £100.00 non-refundable deposit secures your chosen puppy. If you have any questions, would like further information or would like to arrange a viewing, please contact me by phone (mobile preferred) or email.
