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.
Please avoid all unnecessary travel as issued by the Government guidelines for the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak.

An initial viewing can be done via a variety of social media tools and apps.

When there is further clarity on the current restrictions regarding Covid-19 then a face-to-face viewing can be arranged.
Only 2 boys left.
Treatsntrix is a company that was established in 2002 by Teresa Waight and her family. Teresa had owned Lhasa Apso for about a year when she made the huge decision to become a breeder. Teresa chose to have Treatsntrix as her affix as her first Lhasa Apso was called Trixie, as she was her first breeding bitch, and the company is in her memory.
We do not let our puppies leave us until they are 14-16 weeks old as we have found this to be a good age for them to go to their new homes. We have both of their vaccinations done, they are de-wormed/de-fled, they are micro chipped before they leave us. We toilet train them as much as we can in the 14-16 (the Chihuahua pups normal take longer to toilet train so its 16) weeks we have them, Door flap training, lead training.
1 to 2 weeks - The pups are handled every day, this consists of playing with paws, rubbing around the eyes, month, tummy etc.
3 to 4 weeks - Puppies eyes and ear are now open, so we talk to them, still doing all the hands-on stuff with them.
5 to 6 weeks - Puppies will be given puppy food (dry) they get to try different foods like Chicken, Cheese, Lasagne, etc. We feel this is an important part of making sure the puppies go to their new home with knowledge if their tummy can get upset with some kinds of food. They have their 1st Vaccination done as well as their 6-week check with the vet. Teresa is a qualified micro chipper, so she will do this for them around this time.
7 to 10 weeks - This is the time they go out into the garden to learn all about outside, they love this time as they run around play fighting with each other and all the adult dogs. One of the other services we offer is to have the pup neutered for a male and spayed for a girl, please read below for more details.
11 to 16 weeks - this is when we do the lead training with the pups, we try to get them to sit at the road side until we are ready to cross (this is not always 100% and new owners must keep up training)
We also offer the service of your new pup being spade or neutered, you pay the cost of the operation, but we do all the caring of the pup. We have found over the years that this is a good thing to have done before they leave, for the dogs it means even if they smell a bitch in season they will not want to sent everywhere.
The bitches if she never has a season she will never miss them, we noticed that every time they were due to have a season when we had our own girls spade every time they should come into season they would become very quiet and moody (just like us women)
We know many vets have said in the past to wait until they are older, but many vets have changed their views on this now. Dogs and bitch’s personality do seem to change if they have a season or smell a bitch that is in season. We all want the personality of the puppy to come through and taking this step at 10 weeks helps that happen. Please ask for more Info.
We also play with them and try to socialise them with as many things as we can i.e.: other dogs, children and all common indoor/outdoor surroundings, noises etc.
As a breeder for 15 years now we have always registered our puppies with the KC but became very upset when there was a problem with one of our pups but when we ask the KC to help we were told that the paperwork was "only a birth certificate and not proof of ownership" we feel that the KC make a lot of money from people like myself that are NOT and have NEVER shown their dogs and do not want their puppies to be shown.
We have always only sold our puppies to be loving pets, we spend 14 -16 weeks giving them the best start in life. We know a lot of people think that if they are KC registered they are getting a true breed of dog but we are sorry to say that is not always the case as the KC do not do any checks into the parents of the dogs.
We now registered all our puppies with Dog Lovers, this company care for all dogs but only has pets, they like we do not agree with the showing. Please call or email us for more info.
We have 2 lovely little boys ready now, they are both ready now to move on to their new loving family’s. If you are interested please get in contact, as wouldn’t like you to miss out on those wonderful pups. I have set up a messenger group with lots of photos and videos on, happy to add you so you can see for yourself what happy and content pups they are.
The cost of owning a dog can reach up to a staggering £33,000 in their lifetime. Research indicates the cost can vary from £6,500 - £33,000 and the costs largely depend on the breed, size and how long they live.
There are many essential dog care items needed to care for a dog, such as food, lead, collar, bedding, toys and essential routine veterinary care (vaccinations, neutering, worming treatments, annual health checks, and many more).
By law, your dog must also be microchipped and it is the responsibility of the owner to keep the contact information up-to-date. This is also an additional cost as well as pet insurance which is one of the most important investments you can make when owning a dog. Pet insurance (depending on the policy) can cover you for the costs of major illnesses and any emergency treatment.
Understanding the Animal Welfare Act 2006 Introduction to the Code Owning and caring for a dog can be a source of great enjoyment, but you should be aware that dog ownership is a major responsibility. On average dogs live for around 12 years but some may live much longer. Consequently, you should think carefully about all factors that will affect your ability to care for a dog and whether a dog is suitable for you. Would you be able to provide for all of a dog’s needs? You will need to consider the size of your property and the financial and time implications of having a dog as a pet and its exercise needs. Caring for a dog can be expensive and you should consider whether, for instance, you would be able to afford the cost of routine and unexpected veterinary treatment, or the cost of pet health insurance.

However here are some helpful buying advice tips and articles which we recommend you read before you make your final decision to adopt or buy a Chihuahua:
Mypetzilla recommends that all potential buyers or those looking to adopt a puppy; fully read and understand the checklist below before they visit the puppy. It is very important that you DO NOT buy a puppy or dog from the advertiser unless you are 100% satisfied that all the points below have been addressed and understood. Mypetzilla suggests you download this checklist and take this with you during the viewing of the puppy. We advise that you tick off every point on this list and are a 100% confident that the advertiser is genuine. If you have any concerns over an advertiser please report them to us.
Adopting, or buying a new puppy or dog is an important decision and big responsibility. As an owner, you will solely responsible for the welfare of your new pet and will also be financially committed. Before you decide to buy or adopt you must ensure that you’re 100% committed beforehand. For further information on caring for puppies and dogs, please visit our pet advice section. You can also find out more information about the Chihuahua breed by visiting the Chihuahua Dog Breed Information.
Before bringing your beloved puppy home, it's important that the puppy is over 8 weeks of age and has been properly weaned before they leave their mothers. Some sellers will keep the puppy longer than this and this is perfectly fine.
When visiting the puppy’s you should ask to see their mother and if available also ask to see the father. If the advertiser refuses to let you see the mother, or the mother isn’t around for viewing, then this is a very good indication that the puppies have not been bred by the advertiser and they’ve most likely been imported. There should be absolutely NO reason for you not being able to see the mother of the puppies. If the advertiser gives any excuses why you can’t, then Mypetzilla advises you to walk away and report them to us. Mypetzilla forbids third-party selling of puppies. All puppies advertised must have been bred by the advertiser. If this is not the case, Mypetzilla will report the advert to the authorities for necessary action.
It's worth asking the seller a few questions regarding the mother:
All these questions are important for the future health of your dog and the seller should want to tell you everything about the puppy’s mother.
Is the advertiser genuine? Make sure the advertiser is 100% genuine. You can do this by arranging a visit with the potential advertisers home if they try to avoid you visiting, or make excuses, and then you should be concerned. If the advertiser asks for money, or deposit to be paid online without you visiting the dog at their home, or they request to meet you somewhere or drop the dog off at yours, then please DO NOT agree. We advise that you should never send money online. If you’re concerned about an advertiser’s authenticity then please report them to us.
Mypetzilla conducts various checks on advertisers on this site, but are unable to confirm that all are genuine. So please make sure you visit the advertiser at their home and verify this yourself.
It is very important that you check the health of your puppy or dog before you decide to adopt or buy. A responsible seller will fully understand the need and therefore fully cooperate with assisting in the checking the health of the puppy. Majority of sellers will agree that you can return the puppy or dog within 48 hours should they have any health issues. Mypetzilla recommends taking your puppy or dog to the vet for a health check as soon as you take them home. If the puppy has already had a health check by the seller’s veterinary practice, then they should provide you with the legitimate paperwork to support this. It is also worth ringing the vet to confirm everything beforehand.
Check the puppy or dog is up-to-date with their vaccinations. All puppies should have received 2 vaccinations. The first vaccination should be given between 8-10 weeks of age and the 2nd vaccination should be given no more than 2 weeks later when the puppy has reached 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. 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 it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your puppy go outside.
It is recommended that all puppies should be wormed at the age of 2 weeks and then receive another treatment at the age of 5 weeks old. Before the puppy leaves the seller, they should have had more worming treatment at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
It's necessary that the puppies have interacted well with their puppy litter and have been raised in a home environment around other adults, children, and general household life. Puppies that don't receive this kind of training and development from a young age, may go on to develop behavioural problems later in their life and become difficult to train. They may likely develop temperament issues and will find it difficult to adjust to family life.
If the puppy or dog has been registered with the Kennel Club, then you must check that you’ve been given the correct documentation before you take the puppy/dog home. It's worth considering to check the documentation and phoning the Kennel Club to verify the registration.
This is a very important point and is also law abiding. From the 6th April 2016, it is required by Law that all dogs over 8 weeks of age are microchipped and that the keeper's details are registered in their name and are kept up-to-date. It is the breeder’s responsibility to microchip the puppies and that all the correct information is kept up-to-date on the database before they are 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. You can find out more information about this by visiting our puppy and dog microchipping article.
Insuring your puppy or dog is one of the most important decisions you should make when bringing your beloved puppy home. Veterinary fees can become extremely expensive and it's important that you have the correct level of cover beforehand. We recommend that you research pet insurance providers and purchase the correct level of cover. Most policies will allow you to start the cover the day your puppy or dog arrives at their new home. Please check our pet insurance section for further information.
Mypetzilla strongly advises all new potential pet owners to visit the PAAG's website for further information and advice on buying a puppy or dog. Please make sure to visit their how to buy a dog section.
