isn't it more important that the fella gets a nice home more than few quid ? i would come and collect him of course
#7
We bought a Newfoundland which were selling for around £800 at the time and we paid £400, the dog ended up being vicious (not in their nature).

Normally when someone makes a massive reduction on a dog there are other reasons. I hope I am wrong with this 1.

I would hate to see someone buy a dog and for it to bite a kid a few weeks later.
#8
I wouldnt sell a dog that was vicious, we need to get rid of him because we have no room for him. My broher couldnt afford his house when the GF flitted so hes had to come back home, complete with dog. Im know we wont get anywhere near what my brother paid so I'm selling him 'cheap' for a quick sale, as I say hes very soft and you can come round and have a play with him if you like. Thanks for your comment though, MUCH appreciated.

I could give him away all day long, its a pedigree dog , that is why I am asking £400.00 for him, thanks.
#10
beautiful dog,i hope you find him a loving forever home :)
#11
Thanks, I feel a bit cruel selling but at the end of the day as I say we don't have the room for him, its not fair to have him in a tiny garden,
#12
Don't give him away for free - when we had to rehome our husky because daughter was allergic to him we was advised to put a price on him as that way we knew who ever gave him a home actually wanted him and could afford to look after him. We had loads of people e-mailing and phoning saying they would give him a good home if we let them have him. Most of these people are scammers and only want the dog to re-sell or to breed with. In the end we had a lovley couple come round, they come round every day for a week and took him out so he got used to them and they were 100% that he was for them and they were for him, we only accepted £200 for him in the end, which didn't even cover all the food, bed, leads, toys etc that went with him.

Anyway good luck in finding him a good home, he looks lovley, my husband loves the look of him.
#13
He is gorgeous! IF i had the money and didnt have 2 dogs already i would of loved to of had him as my step daughters foster mum has one and i love him to bits! She was lucky to get hers free tho complete with papers, just a case of being in the right place at the right time jammy mare lol

You tried freeads, preloved, gumtree?
#14
Good lucking dog, hope you find him a good home :)

Entirely up to you about asking for money but if fragaliciousbob can offer him a loving home then surely it's worth considering :)

clairenagz
would he £200 do u think? im after a huskie for my hubby but he looks so cute. i can get a huskie pup from near me for £420 and thats with a choice of male or bitch



hi, what you got to think of with a puppy is the cost ontop of the 2 injections you need approx £30 each, microchip £25 ish and then you got all the mess and training.

atleast this dog has all these and is trained

just thought I'd add it for you
#16
Thanks but that offer is too low although I will bear it in mind, as I say this is from a prize winning family and has a full family tree, to get a puppy microchipped, injections, certificates etc is going to cost you a small fortune. This dog was bought for £1000.000. If you live in the area you can come round and have a look at him if you like he's a lovely dog very friendly but not giddy.
#17
were in staffordshire, and i do understand how much its going to cost to get a pup vacinated and mirochipped but it was worth a cheeky offer:-D
#18
Yes we have a cat and he doesnt bother with it at all, although the cat wont go near him because its a very edgey cat lol, also used to having a child around as I say, I wouldnt dream of selling some a dog that might harm a child, hes very timid and well trained.

Thanks, only tried on here so far will try a few more places if no-one on here wants to rehouse the fella, as I say I would have absolutely no trouble giving him away for free but at the end of the day he cost a lot of money and we need to recoup some of that, times are hard you know :)

(im also aware that scammers will offer to take him for free then sell him on but thanks for the heads up)

let me get this straight you are saying that if someone is willing to buy a dog and not get one for free that means that the dog will get a good home and not be treated badly but if a person doesn't pay the they cant afford to feed or home the dog correctly ?

No they are saying that anyone can easily take a dog for free then sell it on (not saying that you will) but someone who is prepared to pay obviously really wants the dog and is more likely to look after it, I think that is a true enough statement.
#22
People buy things all the time if they know they could realistically make a profit on it. It's something that you will never know or find out sadly once the dog has gone. Maybe if you are worried about that happening then perhaps you should consider letting him go to a reputable animal rescue organisation where they vet thoroughly anyone interested in the animal.
#23
Updated description slightly to include toys, bowl lead etc
#24
I am nipping out and will be back in an hour to answer any further questions, I will not be giving the dog away for free as I have stated previously, We simply cannot afford to give away £1000.00 without recouping some money so please will people stop suggesting it, I feel guilty enough already lol.
#25
try putting him on www.epupz.com as people sell older dogs on there as well as puppies & its free to list on there :) people can search by breeds and areas of the country too so you are more likely to find someone near you on there :thumbsup: hope you find him a forever home :)
#26
nothing like trying to make money is there sigh.

i hate the whole sell thing with dogs, so your brother paid a lot of money are you saying that if you dont get you lot of money then he will have to stay in the poor conditions that you describe as your reasons for getting rid. a bit mean when a happy home has already been offerred.

if i was having to rehome my dog id rather they spent the money on the dog. and yes ours is pedigree too.
#27
also devils advocate how do we know that you didnt get him for free and are selling him on for profit, do you have a receipt. can you prove he cost a thousand pound.

plus its your brothers money on the op, yet you cant afford to lose it. strange.
#28
wasnt going to post this but i think this threads getting a bit off track

its totally up to the seller how much and if they wish to accept payment for the dog so why are so many ppl sticking their oar in?
ok we may not all agree with each other but if we all agreed life would be oh so boring

asI said before good luck with rehoming the dog :)
#29
ok fair point mardy but on for sale you can only sell the rrp. what is that for a dog.
#30
Speaking as someone who's been looking at getting a malamute for ages now, he's right, it's worth that all day long. They do go for that amount on e pupz (from breeders, but all the same...) - as for knowing the value, the pedigree documents confirm that the dog would be that much really, so it's a moot point.

I'm not so sure animals should be allowed to be sold on here, nor do I think that it's a good idea to just be after the cash as opposed to wanting a good home for the dog, but that's just personal opinion!

If I wasn't between moving houses literally this week, I'd be making a very serious offer. Good luck with the sale, he looks a gorgeous dog and I hope he ends up somewhere nice. If I get sorted quick enough I may be back to put in an offer myself!!
#31
"Its a classic tale, Brothers girlfriend leaves him, she gets the kids, he gets the dog.... Anyway, we sadly have no room for him here and he needs a good home."

So... you are offering your Brother to a good home, or did I read that wrong? ;)

I was going to suggest "Googling" for a dedicated forum (or plural) for the breed & asking the site owners/administrators if you could place an advert there (if there is not a specific classifieds section available). You'll then find a group of people who have interest in the breed, know what to expect, and will ask the right questions rather than wasting time; no disrespect intended to anyone here (above), but please don't clog the thread bickering as the dog needs a home. Arguing why somebody values one animal at £400 or £1,000 is not really the underlying issue. Commitment to look after an animal that will be unsure of a new environment already will need considerable management & making a snap response to "take him for free" may end up with the animal losing yet another home when you find out you cannot cope.

Good luck with your ("Brother's") re-homing, iNSOMANiAC.

Again, if we did not have 3 dogs already (and 3 kids) I would love a dog with the temperament & stature of a Malamute. The kids would be OK but I suspect the incoming dog of this breed may cause issues with the other established pets.

PS. Trivia fact: George Lucas used to have a Malamute called "Indiana"! :)

BFN,

#32
this probably isnt the place to sell your dog, theres a few dog websites you google about though where you might have better luck... Good luck :)
#33
It's been mentioned to me by a very experienced and professional malamute breeder that it may be a good idea to get in contact with the breeder this little fella came from.

A lot of breeders will buy back dogs for a percentage of the sale price if the situation does not work out.
plus that way you know he will also be well looked after, may be worth looking into, and it could also be the best option for you to re-coup costs and the dogs well-being.
#34
id say dont sell your dog here, if you honestly arent just after a quick buck and you do care. go to specialised dog website. accept that you might not get an many bidders due to it being an older dog.

do you have a list of questions or information for the new owners or is it a case of whoever has 400 quid can have it.

you could go on epupz and then ask the prospective new owners sensible things like where will the house it, do they have a garden, will they mix it with other dogs, do they have a vet near by, do they have any handling experience.

I agree with the vetting of potential owners

If you follow this link. http://www.dogpages.org.uk/breeda1.htm/

There is an e-mail & phone number for a malamute rescue organisation.

They may be able to point you in the right direction with regards to vetting the potential owners/ homes.

I also however agree with that while your brother may have paid out an awful lot of money for the dog to begin with he may have to face the fact that he might be better of just writing it off as a loss if the best homes turns out to be someone who cant afford to pay £400 for him. Just because someone cant afford £400 doesnt mean that they would want him or love him any less than someone in a position to pay more.

I am not slating you but am just trying to say that perhaps it would be good to consider someone who offers less (for example the amount a rescue would charge for the dog).

Even though I could afford to feed & take care & pay ins, etc I could not afford £400 but it would not mean he would be badly treated or unloved.

Hope the link helps & good luck finding him a forever home

I would have thought the loss of the animal (no, not his girlfriend) & the kids was more of a problem than the loss of money already spent, but good advice in any respect.

Yes, odd that.

For extra tips at present, maybe this previous thread (that wasn't locked, but a newly created thread off the back of it was removed) may help?

"A long shot i know BUUUT im looking for a jack russell puppy (male)"

A few parties who have already commented above participated in discussions on the previous thread too.

On the contrary... I thought you may some very good points. Difficult subject matter & everybody in the community here wants to help but it is hard to say the 'right' words.
#40
Can I ask which lines hes from (do you know the kennel or who his parents are)

Also most breeders have a clause in their contracts that the dog is to be returned to them in the event of you being unable to look after them
