Read All About It!
I am sure you are all well aware of the terrible things now happening with the sale of puppies, so many “Money” breeders just breeding anything to anything and selling the puppies for outrageous prices. I am shocked at how anyone will part with money for a mongrel, or worse, for a stolen puppy or dog, it is heart breaking to see and hear about all the thefts, and the vile thieves that will go to any lengths to obtain a puppy or older dog, you are not safe anywhere that you take your dog, nor is your garden or your car, they will also break into your house if they see you take a dog into it. These thieves are everywhere and watching anyone with a dog, please be very careful at all times and do not ever let your dog of his lead no matter where you are. My latest update !!! If you have lamp posts in your area, watch for plastic ties appearing on any, this is one of the many ways being used to show the thieves where there are dogs/puppies living, your dog will not be safe from these people..be vigilant if buying dog food from supermarkets, people have been followed and their dogs stolen when they go out, be very aware when you go to the vets, again people are being either attacked and their dogs snatched or followed home and dogs stolen when you go out..Try to only walk your dog with other people..
If you are trying to obtain a well bred puppy from healthy DNA tested adults do not go on to any internet site, contact the secretaries of the Breed clubs and only buy from breeders who actually show their dogs unless they come recommended by show breeders. The list of all the Breed Club secretaries is on :The Cocker Club: web site. It is virtually impossible at this time to obtain a well bred puppy from breeders who actually show their dogs, all of whom are known to the secretaries, most already have full waiting lists, however, this could change late Spring/Summer time, and perhaps a few will be planning litters soon, be patient and wait, owning a puppy is not something that should be done on a whim, there will be puppies just not immediately.
With the hope of shows restarting there should be puppies available in the new year. Please be careful..
Please be careful where you buy a puppy from, with the totally stupid law that has come into action it now means that people who show their dogs and have excellent reputations for breeding healthy, happy puppies are now very restricted as to how often they can have puppies, unbelievably they can only have 2 litters a year, COMMERCIAL OUTLETS-PUPPY FARMERS AND THE THOUSANDS OF FOLK that breed their girls to death, or breed mongrels with stupid names can have as many litters as they want… the world has indeed gone mad !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NO DEALERS, PUPPY FARMERS — COMMERCIAL BREEDERS OR BREEDERS OF COCKERPOOS– THANK YOU !!
