Looking for Golden Retriever puppies ADVICE

Postby hansch16 » Wed Jan 20, 2016 1:46 pm

Hi there,

I am after some advice in regards to buying a puppy here in Lima.

We are looking to buy a Golden Retriever. This is a breed we had in the UK and for a variety of reasons we would like to buy one here in Peru. However, we would like to do this responsibly and of course buy a dog that is healthy and happy. However, we are not confident of how responsible breeders are here in Lima, and we would really appreciate some advice and/or shared experiences. Does anyone know of any puppies for sale, or where best to look? We have searched the internet and papers, and found a few leads, but we are just wary of the breeding conditions and don't want to buy from someone who is only breeding for money/puppy farms. Does anyone have any experience with the company, Golden Retrievers Peru?

Also, would it be reasonable to ask someone selling a puppy to meet us at a vets, so that we could have the puppy checked over before purchasing?

Many thanks in advance for your support,
Hannah

I realized you said you want a Golden Retriever puppy but have you considered adopting a dog from a shelter? There are many loving wonderful dogs out there just waiting for someone to take them home

I'd echo that. There are some wonderful dogs available for adoption. f you want to look for a specific breed, chances are you might find one to adopt as well.

A lot of dog owners now group together on Facebook. Try the following:

I have sent a Pm to you and must totally agree with everybody's sentiment. Have a look around the local Municipal veterinary service and you may well meet the family member you are looking for. I must admit we purchased or Golden from our local vet, as a puppy, but it was by pure chance we met up with our mate. Just remember if the dog comes from the veterinary service they will have all the jabs, paperwork and a good healthy dog.
