Do you really know what is involved in getting a puppy?

Many families with young children choose a puppy believing they're easier to train and handle than older dogs.

But this is not necessarily the case, as puppies still play very much in a 'wolf-way', meaning they use their teeth a lot and puppies' teeth are very sharp.

And of course, they chew anything in sight. More than anything, housebreaking a puppy takes tremendous structure because every two hours you have to take them out. It's tedious, tiring and you're definitely going to be sleep deprived. And guess what - kids are not going to do it. Mom and Dad are going to be stuck with it!


The age of the dogs has been estimated by veterinarians based on their general health and particularly from their teeth status. It is an informed estimate made by veterinarians and should be used only as a guide.

Alder, Oleander, Clem, Cedar, Blossom, Jasmine and Bluebell are Primrose's pups. They were born at the pound and we received the family when pups were a day old. Primrose, their Mum was emaciated and we had a lot of work building up her body condition and making sure the puppies were healthy. Mum is a Lab X Staffy mix but we do not know who daddy was. We expect these dogs to grow to labrador size but have a coat more like a staffy. Mum is very athletic so we expect the pups to be similar. These pups are available from early July. He comes with puppy vaccinations, wormed, heartworm free, with desexing and microchipped. His adoption cost is $600. For further details email monika@doggierescue.com.
