We're a family of four with two teenagers in south west London in desperate want of a dog. We live close to lots of parks and commons as well as having a large garden. Lockdown is prime time for us to get a dog so we can spend lots of time with him/her and train them before everyone goes back to normal life. My husband works from home mainly and so would normally be at home with the dog to look after it. We would preferably like a boy but to be honest any dog is a blessing. Please get in touch as we would like to get the dog ASAP.
Safety Notice: NEVER send a payment or deposit online before viewing the Pet to confirm the advert is genuine. Read our Covid-19 safe buying guide.
Be extra cautious with online transactions!
We encourage you to read these guidelines before buying or adopting a dog.
Carry out the research so you have the necessary knowledge of the pet you are getting. Since owning a dog is a big commitment, you should research about the breed fully to make sure it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the advertiser's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The advertiser should allow you to personally see the puppies with the puppies' mother. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home or the address stated in the advert is not the accurate and permanent location of the pet, consider this a red flag.
Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the advertiser and seen the puppy, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the puppy. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal, you must have signed a well-defined contract.
The advertiser should only release the puppies when they are 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the puppy from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.

More and more dog lovers want poodle mixes as family pets. They are sought after for their high intelligence, sweet temperament, and hypoallergenic coat. Two of the popular choices are the cockapoo and cavapoo. These designer dogs are created by crossing a purebred poodle and another purebred dog breed. #poodlemix
