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.
10 outstanding puppies available from litter of 13. 4 dogs available and 6 bitches are looking for forever homes. This was a carefully planned breeding of two incredible examples of their breed. Three pups were reserved before the breeding even took place and are going to families who already know and admire both parents for their strong protective instinct and incredible loyalty. Dam to these pups is a 40kg Cane Corso bitch called Roxy. She is 24 inches to the shoulder and brindle in colour. Cane Corso comes from the Italian word for protector and Roxy is just that. Roxy is a trained and working guard dog and is fiercely loyal and protective by nature. We believe she was trained in personal protection before moving in with us but this was not something we wished to pursue. Roxy is a soft and gentle giant with her own family. She enjoys the company of her "pack" and is a quiet and calm presence in the house. Sire to these pups is a white American Bulldog called Django. Django is 26 inches to the shoulder and weighs around 42 kilos. Django comes from a long line of working and guarding dogs. He is highly intelligent and eager to please. Django loves to play with the members of his family and is a good friend to our children. Both parents live with us on our working farm. They have been trained to be warey of strangers so will not be available to "pet" when visiting the puppy's but can be shown to you on a lead for an idea of their size and presence. If you would like to see how Roxy and Django interact with their own family please get in contact and we can send you some videos. These puppy's will suit outdoor working/guarding homes or very active families looking for a loyal friend. Please do not enquire if you are looking for a status symbol or if you will not be able to provide these large dogs with the exercise they will need to keep them happy. Puppies will be well socialised with adults, children and other animals before leaving at 8 weeks. We will microchip your puppy for you and they will also come with 4 weeks free insurance, but we do not provide vaccinations as drugs differ from vet to vet and it cannot be guaranteed that your vet will be able to complete the course we start. Puppies are now fully weaned and ready to leave as from Thursday. Deposits now being taken to secure your puppy.
