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: 26 Wks 6 Days
Pet Breed: Chihuahua
Size: Toy 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.
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.
