We have been wanting to get a family pet for awhile now, yesterday we went to look at some Labrador's and ended up coming home with one, We have named him Toby, he is 8 weeks old and the kids love him and he is really good around them.

We looked at 2 black pups and a chocolate brown, but we fell in love with this one straight away.

Why have they taken it away from his mother too early? Should be minimum 8 weeks.

Actually, it's not 8 weeks. Guide dogs for the blind (not the blind society!) place puppies at 6 weeks.
Private breeders, tend to rehome puppies on average from 8 weeks, but if puppy is in good health, feeding well, then from 6 weeks is fine. I actually got my staff at 5 weeks, but did have to prove to breeder I was in the dog world! Wish I'd left her now, she's a pain in the ass!

We fostered a dog for a week from Manchester dogs home, to give him a rest from the place, no intention of keeping him, just to give him a break from the dogs home and to see how our 3 children reacted to having a dog in the house.

We wanted to get a full pedigree Labrador and going off some recommendations we found an excellent breeder.

If you like the idea of having a dog foster one for a week or 2 from your local dogs home that way you have the company of a dog for awhile without the commitment to see if it right for you, your house and your family.

Nice thing for you to do.

I live very close to the dog's home.

I rescued some ex-battery hens last year.

I am allergic to doggies :(

It is dreadful at Manchester dogs home, there are so many dogs you just know they wont all get re homed. So many Staffordshire bull terriers obviously got by people thinking they are a tough dog when in reality they are really soft, the kind of people that buy a dog as a status symbol then realise the dog is not macho enough and get rid.

I had to get a puppy for it to grow with the children otherwise I would have defiantly rescued a dog.

I just got a mini daxie, 4 days ago, her breeders couldn't show her because she's too small so we took her.

She's a black and tan long haired lass, 8 months old and the funniest thing I have ever seen. If just being a mini daxie wasn't comedic enough she's a complete loon outside, no pics as yet, well no decent pics anyway, she wont sit still long enough.

She went from being kenneled most of the time with 12 other dogs to being in the house all the time with 2 kids and only 1 other dog, but she's taken very well to it. She's totally part of the family and has been from the 1st minute we saw her, always after a cuddle and she has mastered jumping up on our sofa (we dont mind) already, took her a good few attempts what with her legs being about 5 inches long, but she's done it. She's house trained too (thankfully) which has saved me no end of work, she's just a wee doll................

Thanks, Yes for not even being home for 24hrs he does seem very settled, he has had 4 poo's outside and wee'ing outside also, he had a poo indoors in the night but got it on his training pad and he had a little wee on the carpet this morning in excitement.

On the way home from picking him up yesterday we poped in to pets at home to pick up a few bits, we took him in with us, but on the way out, so we could open the boot of the car and put the buggy and shopping away we sat him on the drivers seat to wait for us, while we were packing up he poo'd all over the drivers seat of the car. YUCK!!!!

Thanks, We took a long time to decided, we had to consider everything, going away, work commitments, walks. With 3 children under 5 it is a very big commitment but something we feel we are ready for, maybe it was put us off having another child.

So true about Manchester Dogs Home. My family have always gone there for our pets, but it still makes me cry when I see the sad faces looking for love, even though I'm a Grandma now (thank goodness the grand children haven't noticed ;) )
We were very lucky with our last pup, she looks like a black lab, but is actually a staff/lab cross (we think haha) so is much smaller. Gorgeous pup, needing re-homing, fraction of a breeders price.Perfect :3
