Advert: For Adoption
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:1 Years 7 Months 22 Days
Pet Breed: Mixed Breed
Size: Dog Breeds
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.
Bailey is an 18 month old terrier cross. he is neutered. vaccinated. micorchipped. flea and wrom treated and will be rehomed with 5 weeks free pet insurance. Bailey was handed into us when his owner could no longer keep him but very sadly it seems like Bailey hasnt had the best start in life. he arrived extremely fearful of the world and rather thin too bless him. Since being in one of our very experienced foster homes he has really started to blossom. He was petrified when he first arrived and really didnt know how to interact with the other small dogs there but as time has gone by he has started to relax more and now has some little dog playmates who are helping to bring him out of his shell. Bailey is particularly fearful of men. especially when they are walking around so he would ideally suit a female only household or maybe a quieter couple with a male in the home who has time and patience to let Bailey build his confidence over time. He really would benefit from having another little neutered dog in the home to learn from and buddy up with. Bailey has been guarding his food bowl .not surprising as he appeared underweight on arrival so his food is precious. so he will need to be fed separately from another dog in the home and just left to eat his food in peace. He is fine taking treats gently. Bailey can be vocal when visitors come into the home or he see..s people outside but there is no malice in this little lad. its just all noise. He absolutely loves his walks and being a youngster he needs an active home who can give him plenty of exercise. He travels ok in the car. he sleeps quietly downstairs overnight with the other dogs and tries to be clean in the house. He will need someone around for part of the day so wouldnt suit a full time working home. Baily hasnt been tested with cats but we doubt he would hurt a feline friend. because he is very nervous he can only be considered in a home with older dog savvy children age 10yrs plus please. Bailey is being fostered nr Market Drayton. Shrops but can be rehomed further afield to the right home subject to homecheck and donation. If you feel you have the right quiet but experienced home to offer this lovely little chap what he needs please email us at .email removed. telling us all about your home offer.
