hello there, i know its a long shot, but i was wondering if there is anyone out there who is looking at rehoming there dog, its just my mum has been after a small dog just to keep her company, as she is unable to work due to illness so gets abit lonely,
she has kept dogs before so nows what she is doing and has a big enclosed back garden and a very large grassed front garden so plenty of room for a dog to run around. thank you you for any help given

why don't you go to the dog and cat shelter?
Bound to be some lovely little dogs there that need re-homing. Plus the staff should be able to help you choose a dog biased on its temperament
#2
dog's do need to be walked as well!

most places want you to pay a big fee for rehoming

for they're behaviour, socialisation exercise, etc. it's not fair to get a dog & just coop it up in doors & just let it out in the garden! If you want an animal you can do that with & to keep you company your best getting a cat.

thats sad, but i guess it's to protect the animals welfare. save on people just taking on a dog they cant handle. But then again. if you can afford to give a dog a loving home....would it not be worth it?

he didnt say she cant walk just cant work

but then if she can't handle the fee from rehoming centre how will she be able to handle pet food, injections, insurance vet bills, etc? dogs aren't cheap to keep

there is a big difference in having a hundred + quid up front, and having a few quid to feed and for insurance every month, the rest comes with love and care
#12
injections aren't covered by insurance tho, nor is an excess of between £50 & £100 depending on the policy & there are illnesses/ injusries that some policies won't cover. £100 is cheap for a dog.
#13
Sorry if i'm upsetting you but it's just my dog had puppies a few weeks ago & know that when i come to sell them that what you are stating would not meet my criteria in the care that the animal would get. i'm not going to say any more now.
#14
not being funny but she has been think about all this for months , she didn't wake up this morning and go "HEY I WANT A DOG" as i said before she has kept dogs before so is fully aware.
and also don't you think if someone is wanting to rehome a dog wouldn't it be better to go straight to someone who is willing rather than all around the houses?

thanks
within hampshire please,
also can i add "cheerleader" has got a real problem with me and i don't know why!! but i am and my family are good people and wouldn't go into something without both eyes wide open. thanks

If you don't walk your dog it will become the one who drops the soap in the shower lol

I'm sure shelters only charge you around £40 to pay for what theyve spent on food and shelter etc, my aunty got hers from the shelter you also get discounts for getting the dog chipped and snipped and sometimes the frontline stuff

But i'm not totally sure that would apply..

What you think she has a problem with you?:| lol what gives you that idea?????

No need to start defending your family.... thats silly.

its pretty clear what her problem is... Shes a Dog lover and she has an idea of what it is to look after and care for a dog. i agree with her. A dog shouldnt just be let out in the garden then kooped up indoors all day. They need to be taken out on walks, meet other dogs see other people. They do cost alot aswell but im sure youve looked into all that.

Good luck finding a dog :p

yes i know what your both saying but the reson i didn't mention walking the dog is because it goes without saying
#21
ive got a toy poodle, he has a walk probably twice a week if im honest. he is tiny and most 'toy' type dogs dont require the same ammount of walking/exercise as say the bigger varietys. id recommend toy poodles too as they have hair and not fur so would be perfect if shes got allergies. weve got a huge garden also!
#22
look for a local shelter, they have hundreds of dogs for rehoming.
I work at my local shelter and our adoption fee is just £60, this includes the dog, which is vaccinated, microchipped, de-flead, wormed and more, they come with essentials such as food, collar, tag, insurance all inclusive.

unless you're a private and registered breeder your dog's puppies are simply adding to the problem.
The fact you intend to sell them for profit says more than any other of your posts.

which shelter is that? i have looked at some shelters on the interney that are near me, but for some wierd reason all the ones near me want a big fee, she only wants a small dog, not bothered about age or anything, shes not getting it for fun its for company
#26
I don't know about dogs, but my friend paid a £60 fee for her cat...and he did come with vaccinations etc
#27
I work for Manchester and Cheshire home for lost dogs.

it depends on the place you're looking, make sure it's a re-homing shelter and not a breeding shelter, those usually breed pedigrees in bad conditions and charge hundreds of pounds.

Call around your locals and ask, also keep in mind that small breeds and young dogs are the most popular when it comes to re-homing so if she's intent on a smaller dog it will be worth getting to the shelter for when they open in a morning/afternoon

no disrespect as i don't know you but would seem better that the dog is matched by people who do this all the time than by a luck on the web different dogs suit different people :thumbsup:

for your information my dogs are kennel club registered from good lines so their puppies are the same. Also i won't be making a profit from my pups when you take into account all the equipment i bought, the vet fees, the 24 hour a day 7 day a week care that i have been giving them, the kennel club registrations, worming, food, frontlining etc. my dogs are not cross breeds they are pedigree & it's people who breed cross breeds who add to the problem, so before you open your mouth again i think you should get your facts straight!!

my point is that if you can't afford the fee from rehoming centre then how would you be able to take good care of your dog. i didn't say you weren't good people by the way...
#35
I'm a hampshire lass,try this place although i'm not sure on rehoming fees etc but might be worth a call,I went and visited once and wanted them all lol

so your kennel club registered puppies, that have been brought into the world by your choice for your profit are more important than Hope a cross breed that was thrown into oncoming traffic from a moving vehicle before being brought to a rescue home?

I'm not saying breeding dogs is a bad thing, but I think before you shout your mouth off in a public forum about how expensive dogs are and what you deem "requirements" for dog ownership are not that for all dogs.
some dogs with the right care and love.

think about that next time your bitch gets pregnant with another litter of puppies that continue to saturate the dog population and leave less desirable "cross-breeds" by the wayside because private and profiteering breeders deem them unacceptable.
#38
I think thats a bit random to be honest, I earn more than most people and I would'nt want to pay over £100 for a dog on principle, kennels should check out the family home to see if the place/ people are suitable, not just go off if they can afford the dog, its like saying if you live in a bedsit your suitable to home a dog providing you can pay £100. Not right. Whats more important is if you can look after the dog correctly and can afford its upkeep.

I think it's also to do with their costs, they are all charities and need some money to keep up their good work

i was saying that dogs aren't cheap to look after, don't have a problem with cross bred dogs bu these are the ones that you will normally find in rehoming centres. i bought the breed of dogs that i did (cavalier king charles spaniels) because of their wonderful temperemant & as i said before i am not making a profit so how dare you say that!
