Dogs & Puppies checklist

  • Is the dog a breed which is legal to own in the U.K.?
  • Have you met the dog in its own home or the puppy with its mother?
  • Have you been allowed to visit the animal two or more times?
  • Do you know the animals history and whether it has any behavioural issues?
  • Are the dogs medical records up to date?
  • Has the dog (at 6 months +) been neutered or spayed?
  • Has the dog been microchipped and does the current owner have the chip details?
  • If required, have you seen the sellers/ breeders or pet shops license?
  • Freeads does not recommend paying any money/deposit if you have not viewed the dog/puppy!

If the answer to any of these questions is no, please consider using a different breeder or seller and if you are concerned about the animals welfare, you can report the matter to Freeads or directly to the RSPCA.
