re homing

Post by Jayned61 » 02 Nov 2006, 17:08

Hi Everyone

Not sure about you but £800.00 for a 9month old pup is a bit expensive or am I beening silly?! if you wanted to pay that kind of money you would get a 8wk old one when you can choose from the litter.

Sorry no contest. two of my customers drove over from Holland to collect puppies, both traveled well not sick once. you must realy want a Labradoodle to travel that far. One is now a mascot for the Holland basket ball team.

Went 3 times 200 miles there and 200 back again before collecting my Millicent, worth every gallon!
Would have beaten you Fiona but I wont sell a pup to a gentleman in Singapore (too hot!!!)prepared to visit the pups before purchase. Mine hate the heat.
Mars and back anyone!

Yes we probably are all out of our minds travelling those distances! and I am by no means well off, although if money is a problem for you, you need to think very carefully to if you can afford a dog as vets bills certainly aren't cheap! I would recommend that you look into dog insurance, although this will not cover routine stuff like vaccinations and wormers which are not exactly cheap either, and thats without even feeding your dog.

Admittedly mine are poodles not doodles but any large dog requires considerable outlay, not just to buy but to keep in good health, people seem to want, what seem to me, extraordinary sums of money for the adult doodles they can can no longer keep for whatever reason. But that is the situation, where commonly almost the same price as a pup is being asked and if you want one you will have to pay that or someone else will beat you to it. Young dogs with few problems that will be good with children are very rare to find needing a new home, particularly if you are looking at only one breed and in a specific area. Have you considered rehoming from the ncdl? There is a centre in West London
Dogs Trust
Highway Farm
Harvil Road
Harefield
Uxbridge
UB9 6JW
0845 076 DOGS (3647) lo-call rate
There may well be a dog really needing a good home that would suit your family well, and you would have the support and advice of the staff and the outlay would be fairly low.

Hi Everyone

YES we are looking at other dogs other then Labradoodles & yes we have been to Battersea Dogs Home Old Windsor & Dog Trust Harefield last weekend. But as it was the end of Half Term we was only offered one dog at Battersea because my son is only 8 & nothing we all liked at The Dog Trust.

YES we can afford to own a dog pay vets bills feed it etc or we wouldn't be looking, this is not a lets go buy a dog now anything will do & how do we pay for its unkeep once he/she is home with us, three months ago we all sat down & talked about it as its a life stye change as well.
We've had our home check from Battersea Dogs Home & they are more then pleased with us.

Now all we have to do is find the right dog for our family so we can all be HAPPY :D
