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.
The most Beautiful Long haired chihuahua puppies you will ever see and will be ready for their new family at 16 weeks old. My two babies have both had a litter each. One of 4 puppies boys and girls (coming up 7 weeks old) and the other 5 puppies, boys and girls. (Coming up 5 weeks old) I have the Dad too so all can be seen and they are in the pictures I have uploaded. All my chihuahuas are kennel club registered but puppies will not be as they are mixed between long nosed ( mother looks like a little fox) and appledome (short nosed and shorter head) and semi-long haired and long haired. We have pure white puppies, cream, beige, and 2 blues. Chihuahuas are the most loving animals you could ever hope for. They are so funny, full of such individual characters and have long life span of up to 25 years. They are use to children, other pets and like their walks. The best homes only for these beautiful babies and to ensure this my partner and I will have some questions to ask and may wish to see evidence of a permanent loving home you offer. This is for our own piece of mind as we will not let them go to just anyone. All pups will be vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. They will come with puppy food, their favourite toy, blanket, and a little book with info on the breed, them, pictures etc. Please do your research before considering having a puppy. Babies can not be left on their own so if you work, I would suggest only taking them home when you have days at a time off and generally if you work, I would suggest having more than one dog so they have each other for company, with lots of toys, and puppy training pads, water and chews, in a safe environment with perhaps someone to check in on them that you can trust. I will accept txt messages as I’m not always able to answer calls but I will eventually wish to talk over the phone before welcoming you to our home to see these beautiful darlings. Prices vary depending on sex and colour, but from £750-£950 and blue coloured £1300 Viewings welcome but we will want to ask questions etc. Please don't be put off by this, its for the sake of these puppies and our peace of mind only. Non refundable Deposits of £200 will secure your puppy of choice. Thank you for reading. Look forward to meeting you if you have decided to visit these babies, you have certainly made the right choice.
