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.
Unfortunately I am no longer able to care for Buddy due to a change in my personal circumstances so I am looking for a new home for him.
I keep in regular contact with the breeder who still has his mum and dad so if you wanted to speak to her you're more than welcome to. She is local to me. I am very open about the dogs roots, and I know that the breeder he came from is very ethical and has an excellent reputation.
I have never sold a dog before so I'm very new to this but all I will say is that this is not an easy thing for me to do so I would ask that you are a serious buyer and have all good intentions of keeping him for life, as I feel this is important for him as it's not something I have been able to give him.
He is a very well behaved and lovely natured. Very affectionate. He is not neutered as I dont personally agree with ut but if thats something you wanted to do thats your choice. With other female dogs he is very "active". He has very good hearing and makes a lovely companion. I have been on plenty of lovely walks over the years with him and unlike some French bulldog he will walk and not give up half way through the walk and stop. He is very strong and fit. I have never in the 2 years I have owned him had any medical issues with him. When his back is arched he is very well built and his ears stand properly, there is no faults. His breathing is very good.
He is fully up to date with all vaccines and is microchipped. I have used a local vets in Chester the same for all of his age.
Buddy does not like cars so a new owner would need to take this into account. He also likes one to one attention so somebody with many other dogs will NOT be suitable. Please do not enquire if you already have a dog.
I may want to see your home and where you will keep the dog before I sell him to you before the final transaction for my own sanity.
Over the 2 years I have built a collection of dog toys treats blankets games toys bones you name it. Along with shampoos sprays and various other dog stuff! I will supply this with Buddy as they are things he knows and is used to.
