When I was looking for a pup I tried the freeads and tradeit. Perhaps you might have some luck on there. Good Luck
#2
you might be getting one near christmas (for obvious reasons)

That is true I didnt think about that. Perhaps waiting until after xmas would be a better idea as loads of them will be needing homes in January after the novelty has worn off.

Try here:

http://www.dogpages.org.uk/forums/index.php?act=idx

which will lead you on to many other websites that deal with puppies to elderly dogs needing homes.
#5
go to your local pet smart, they'll have plenty of pups on their ads board
#6
Seems to me your budget is pretty tight for getting a puppy, £75 or £100 but you would like a cage, have you even considered the vaccination cost's ect ? I have spent well over £100 on vet fee's since I got my puppy 7 week's ago,but I was aware of this and made provisions, If you get one for £75 the odds are you are going to spend a hell 0f a lot more on him in the first few month's, if your going to look after him and attend to his needs properly.
#7
Think about a rescue dog. They also come neutered and vaccinated - at least with the Dogs Trust dogs do.
We're keeping an eye out at our local dogs trust but haven't found the right dog for us yet.
#8
yes i know my budget is tight but im well aware of the costs ..if i pick it up on the 23rd i have to give it 7 days to get it used to the home and then i have to pay £40.00 for both sets of vaccinations and spaying at 6 months like i say i have a dog so i am aware of costs and i will have the vaccination fees after crimbo i get paid then i just really want the dog now.
#9
try animal shelters etc. youve not got a very big budget and if im honest i think youll hacve problems getting a decent puppy for that! that budget however would get you a rescue dog who at this time of the year would love a new home! our family has just got a rescued springer and hes a gem! my husbands family have always had rescued dogs and so long as you know their history-ie suitable with kids other pets you will be fine! good luck! p.s have you tried [url]www.epupz.net[/url]

i wouldn't trust a rescue dog as far as i could throw it, my family have had 3 over the years, all fookin nightmares


You've got to appreciate that although you have had nightmare rescue dogs that a lot of them do work out!

We have had 3 rescue dogs who have worked out fine.

If you throw them about you cannot expect them to remain friendly! ;)

In contract to your previous comment about buying puppies from high street (trading estate) pet store (warehouses), I wouldn't give them my business as you have no idea where these animals are sourced. You cannot see their parents, nor have any guarantee that they haven't come from a puppy farm.

Granted, you also do not have that information on a rescue animal, but if you have the patience for an animal that has been treated poorly in the past, then once you gain trust with it, then you will have a friend for life.

Some rescue animals may have been mistreated by small children & if you are introducing a new animal into your home it is recommended to take all the family members to meet it at the rescue centre before committing to taking him or her home.

That way, any issues can be spotted straight away instead of building up the hopes of any of your kids (or partners... all of them), and then disappointing them, but also for the sake of the animal who will have to readjust to yet another home only to be taken away again if it doesn't work out.

That said, if you do find a suitable dog, and you do have kids, train him or her to protect the kids & you get your home protected for free! :)

BFN,

i agree with fanpages
my best mate is the dog in my avatar
also you will have to be fully inspected by the dogs trust to be sure that you are suitable for the dog you are interested in

but i always buy up all the squeeky toys in tesco and take em there at christmas never go beyon reception though

their only nightmares because of what they've been through, plenty of attention and so on and they would be fine.

As for a jack russell :D great choice i had one since i was a baby and he lived till i was 15 :( lovely dog, we have plenty of them going for that price around here! so don't see why you couldnt get one.

....if i had the chance I would run my own rescue centre!!
#15
Many dog re homing centers DO NOT re home in December " A Dog is for life and not just for Xmas..", so be aware if you try that route you may struggle.

Re jabs etc - yes that will mark the price "up" - plus food etc, be warned...

Wait and see after christmas is my best thing to say.... Also let your husband come aswell!

The dogs trust, i personally wouldnt go back to the one that my nan used, not because of the dogs but the people! After the problems that they caused my nan and also really didnt tell her the whole story behind the history of a dog she adopted, it caused a heck of a lot of heart break and pain! Long story, but that particular centre i would be reluctant to visit... Although i very nearly did adopt a huskey x german shepard that they had in... if it had not of been for my accomodation status at the time!

i agree, if it wasn't for the pple running the place it'd be cool, we all needed to know the dogs history, then we'd be able to decide better

Why didn't your pet insurance cover the eye infection &/or the antibiotics?

Yes, I know. I didn't mention PetSmart either. If could have used the correct word "connection" instead of "contract" (!?!) too.

What I was saying was that if animals were for sale from high street (trading estate) pet store (warehouses) then you do not know where they are sourced.

I know of two places (one in Leeds & one in Pendlebury) that were accused of using puppy farms many years ago, but I won't name them (although the second location may well make the actual vendor obvious) as such an accusation may well be unjustified now.

UPDATE....I managed to find a breeder online and within 25 minles of me she was advertising them for £100.00 each so i called her as they have just turned 8 weeks old and i couold pick it up after christmas when i get paid. i am getting him for £70.00 and he's innoculated for 4 weeks. i am well aware of the costs and i am only on a tight budget this month and jan is a whole other story :). Its not that i dont want a rescue do i do support dogs trust monthly. I have a 3 year old dog at the moment which i bought from a pet shop due to the conditions he was kept in, he had kennel cough and was dehydrated so i had a hard time the first time. Plus i have my heart set on a jack russell puppy and rescue centres havent had any i have been asking for 3 months. Anyway sorry to ramble he's getting delivered today and me and my 9 yea old are very excited :P ill post a photo as soon as i can. Hes going to be called Bullit (deliberate spelling mistake)


Thanks to you all for your posts and MERRY CHRISTMAS:santa:

P.S. I am very aware what i am taking on here and i urge others not to buy a puppy without understanding the full, long time costs and effort taking on a dog will mean and please DO NOT get one unless you can accept them. Although they are cute they dont stay that way forever PLEASE HELP US ALL BY ONLY GETTING A DOG YOU CAN AFFORD AND TAKE CARE OF FOR HIS WHOLE LIFE if you cant, stroke it , think its cute and walk away.

Stop trying to fault whatever I type then. Just move on. Both of own opinions are valid.

I don't see why not. Such is the way of people these days if something involves anything other than a few link or button clicks then they won't bother. Reaching in their pockets when being mugged in or out of a supermarket is too much trouble, but donating online isn't.

At (Audio)(Visual)Forums.com they usually organise a thread where everybody 'donates' computer/video games related items that are sold off (as normal as per any trading forum, such as HotUKDeals), and the proceeds are donated to a children's charity. If any items are left over at the end they are just sent to the charity (children's home, orphanage, children's hospital, or whomever the recipient is). Sellers offer their items (that may just be collecting dust in their own homes) for free & often pay the postage when the item is sent to the buyer.

You could organise something similar, or just elect to start a collection by JustGiving.com, or similar.
