Thread: Genuine Question About Where to Buy a Puppy Please Dont Flame Me

  1. #11


    Also check out.
    Save a Dog, Lort Smith, Lost Dogs Home, RSPCA, AAPS Australian Animal Protection Society, Blue Cross Animal Society.
    Websites and home pages are not always updated so It may pay to give them a call.
    Phone calls are not always answered straight away. You can't leave your name and what breed you are after as there are not enough hours in a day to chase up everyones requests. Most shelters and private rescue groups are run on a shoe string budget and volunteers so replies can be a little slow. Take your time and visit some shelters and meet some of the lovely dogs that need homes the right one will be out there for you.

    The RSPA in burwood is really good, but ask to see the puppies because most of the dogs you will see are a little bit older and they will only show you the puppies if you request to.

    I understand your situation, when i first got on here i asked the same question i also wanted a cross breed etc etc and i got drilled with supporting puppy farms and i had no idea what puppy farms were let alone supporting them.
    However even though i got some not so nice comments it did open my mind up to animal shelters and i went and had a look at a number of them. Unforunatly i couldnt find the dog for me and so i got my puppies from the trading post.
    You will know inside of you if you beleive its a puppy farm or all about money. I just recommend checking out the mother and father and make sure the puppies are in good condition and their living environment.
    When i got mine unfortunatly they were not vaccinated, neither parent had be vacinated, none had been wormed or anything and the other puppies died, so in my heart taking the last 2 puppies was saving them and giving them a good life.

    Good luck i hope you find the right puppy for you where ever you may find him/her

    Thank you again everyone. We will be checking out the dog shelters in the new year. A friend used to work for Lort Smith so I might contact her about the best way to go as well.

    Spuddy thanks everytime I go past a certain pet store in maor shopping centres my daughters go crazy at the puppies but now it jut makes me sad. I am glad you were able to give a couple a good life. It seems those stores probably lead to alot of not so well thought through puppy buying decisions and I imagine that many end up in shelters. I am glad your two have a happy home.

    Thanks again
