Looking for a puppy, preferably a bitch. Small like a Jack Russell size. Now is an ideal time to bring a dog into our home as i am home from work and school holidays. My daughter dreams of having her own Puppy. She spends most of her day playing with our neighbours dog. There is always someone at home so the dog would not be left. Loving home waiting. I can’t (and won’t) pay several hundreds/thousands so no silly prices please. I have been genuinely shocked at prices. I’m in the Northumberland area. Willing to travel within reason. Anyone??
(No Scams! Someone tried to scam me this week and my daughter broke her heart as she thought she was getting a puppy!)
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.

Jack Russell terriers were initially bred as hunters. Their size allows them to chase their prey underneath the ground. It takes one brave soul to be on a single mission to follow its prey up unto its burrow and readily go defensive if the prey tries to attack.
