Hi all i am Gavin and am hunting for some info and maybe a puppy
We are looking for a pup which would be small/medium when adult.
We are in Cornwall and still need to see if our landlady would allow it.
We are a family of four my wife and i, two children aged 3 and 8. The 8 year old has Autism and is a little unsure of big dogs but seems fine with cats etc so we feel getting a pup and allowing them to grow together will help him greatly.
On approval of the landlady we would be looking for a gentle friendly dog that is good with kids and a busy household. Pref a bitch as i have been told they can be gentler than males (correct me if wrong)
We both work but we work alternate shifts so someone is home everyday all day.
Pref house trained but not essential, must be a fairly easily maintained dog i.e coat exercise etc...
We are fairly active and go out on walks with the kids often so there will be plenty of walkie's
Some breeds we have been interested in are beagles, terriers (non scruffy ones if there is such), staffs but i prefer ones that do not have such wide heads i am not sure is this is a gender thing or breed thing but some pics i see they look quite sweet where as others look like thugs lol
Also out of interest as i am new here what are the cost of taking on a pup as in how much are they is there a set price or is it free to good home type thing? just interested as i have looked at buying but shelling out £700 plus in one go is a lot.
Well i think thats about it.
