Buying A New Puppy?

October 2, 2009 4:43 pm

Well everyone knows that I'm a big fan of adoption. If you've come to this site, you likely have been looking at an animal of some sort perhaps thinking that you may be interested in adopting them.

There are times however that adopting a puppy or kitty isn't the best choice. When allergies are a problem, or a specific breed is desired.. at that point you go looking for cats or dogs for sale.

In the past, both times that I've adopted a dog(s), I've had a positive experience. Heavenly Creatures was instrumental when I wished to adopt my two wonderful beagles, and the PEI Humane Society was very easy to deal with when the first beagle-mix we had was welcomed into the family.

There are plenty of places online that have kitties and puppies for sale, one such place I just ran across was www.puppies-forsale.co.uk. Yes, I know it's in the UK, but like I say, I just came across it and I started to look and see what the prices of some of the pups are!

Holy smokes! Beagles are expensive!! The cheapest beagle on the site was 500 pounds.. that's over $860! Amazing.. Hmm.. maybe Beagle Paws should start looking to the UK for some adopters? God knows they could likely save some money!

Actually going through the site I can see why this would be popular and the reasons behind the site's launch are clearly explained right at the beginning of the site:


Puppies for Sale began as a result of many failed attempts to purchase our very own puppy.

We were appalled by the number of breeders who were advertising puppies / dogs for sale with little or no regard for the animal's welfare, not to mention the inaccurate advertising of breeds. When we tried to buy our puppy, we were shocked at some of the conditions the puppies (often mis-spelt puppys) were being kept in and by the people breeding them. It soon became apparent that some "breeders" main objective was money making and not the love of their puppies. This is why theĀ Puppies for Sale website was born.

We found, finding the perfect puppy for our home was no easy feat (or should we say paw!) and believeĀ Puppies for Sale will help ease the pain of this process, ensuring you find your perfect furry friend.
To help eliminate some of these poor breeding and living standards, all adverts for puppies and dogs on this website are fully vetted for authenticity andPuppies for Sale has done everything possible to ensure the well being of all puppies and dogs listed on this website.

Our aim is to ensure you find your perfect friend for life, with both peace of mind and ease

Personally I don't like individuals selling puppies as a means of income.. it's pretty ridiculous if you ask me.. but if you have RESPONSIBLE breeders/owners, then I believe this site may merit some attention. Perhaps something like this in Canada would be a good thing?
