    Hi, I would love to have a small dog as a pet. I've grown up with dogs, my mum has always had dogs from me being born, we've had west highland terriers, Rottweilers, labradors, staffs, jack Russells.....the list is endless! Due to me living in a two bedroom house, it's not very big and I would love a large breed, my dream is a husky but it wouldn't have enough room in the house and it wouldn't be fair. So I've thought about smaller breeds and I'm steering towards long haired/fluffy breeds. I like all breeds, however i love pomeranians, chiuauahs, German spitz etc. I've searched the internet top to bottom, been on every website you could think of and cannot find a safe, legit breeder. Or maybe I have and I'm just being too careful. Could anyone help me to find a breeder or any of the above breeds which is safe and legit? It needs to be in the UK preferably within the 30 mile radius of Merseyside North West of England :)

    Any help much appreciated!
    Thank you in advance!

    I really, really wouldn't advise buying a puppy over the internet !!
    Look at the breed clubs of the puppies you're intersted in , look for breeders who do the relevant genetic health testing and breed ethically for temperament .

    A good place to look is often the breed clubs, they usually have good advice about buying a puppy and often puppy lists. You do need to look for a breeder who health tests parents prior to breeding, not just the normal vet check but specific health tests. Below is an independent website that lists and explains all the health problems in the breeds and also what tests are available and which parents should undergo.

    The breed clubs can be found on the links below

    The german spitz breed club website seems to be down at the moment.

    You can also find kennel club assured breeders on the links below. Assured breeders should be visited and follow certain criteria, one of which is to carry out health testing prior to breeding, however some tests are requirements where others are only recommendations so it still doesn't mean that all tests available may have been carried out so you do need to check and ask questions still.

    Dogs trust does have good information about what to look for in a breeder and thing that should make you dubious

    Unfortunately the breeds you have chosen are very popular at the moment, and are being bred by commercial breeders, including puppy farms and back yard breeders because of if. They are the sort of breeds that are often imported illegally too, so you really do need to research your breeder and ask questions. You may also have to be prepared to travel a bit and maybe even wait for a good breeder.
