Doing our best to provide the best

July 8, 2011 by Peter

We have recently received a letter from Petra, a Happy Miniature Bull Terrier owner in the United Arab Emirates and we think her experience will help many of you out there searching for that special puppy of yours.

Miniature Bull Terrier, UAEShe starts her letter: “I have received the puppy and all went well. I must say that I am very happy with my choice.” Her puppy is indeed very good looking and confident which you can tell just by looking at her face. Petra continues: “I have always gone directly to breeder to purchase my dogs because I wanted to see where they come from, how the parents are kept and how well the puppies are socialized.”

It is perfectly reasonable from anyone looking to buy a puppy to want to visit the breeder in person, see the parents, the environment and of course, the puppy itself. However, the traditional way of selecting and purchasing a puppy is not an option for everyone:

“But because I live in the UAE and I have little time to look for breeders with available puppies in my short summer holiday, I had to rely on strangers like you to do the leg work for me.”

That’s where Euro Puppy comes in. We visit the breeders personally, photograph their puppies, give them a good health check and will only recommend the ones to you that meet the standard. If you want to save yourself the “leg work” as Petra says, we are here to help.

“I must admit that I had my doubts buying an animal from the internet. I was a little worried that I was purchasing a dog from horrible breeding facilities where the bitches are covered over and over again to make maximum profits. I worried that the puppies were not well kept and psychologically disturbed.”


Good news for UK dog lovers: entry rules about to change!

July 1, 2011 by Peter

bulldogIf you have ever attempted to import a dog to the UK or to simply travel with your own, you know what a nuisance it is. According to our unofficial sources, the entry rules for pets entering the UK are about to change finally.

At the moment your dog needs to be at least 9 months of age to enter the UK under the Pets Travel Scheme. Young puppies need to spend the first six months of their lives – the best period for bonding and training - in quarantine just to make sure that the required vaccinations are effective and the puppy does not carry any infectious diseases.

What's happening is that the UK is falling in line with the rest of EU. Pet dogs and cats from the EU and listed third countries (see pdf below) entering the UK from 1st January 2012 will require the following:

Puppies for sale in Dubai from the Netherlands - buyers beware!

May 23, 2011 by Peter

We were recently contacted by a customer from Abu Dhabi. I would like to quote her letter below:

“Dear Eddie, everyone suggests we contact you, My husband and I are looking for a healthy virus free puppy. We are interested in a cocker spaniel. A week ago we bought a cocker spaniel puppy in Dubai that was imported from the Netherlands, it had a passport with vaccine stickers stamped and signed from the vet. My puppy died last night from parvo and while he was in hospital, there was another puppy with the same passport and same vaccine sticker with the exact same number code for each vaccine, it turned out these people lied about the dogs being vaccinated and dewormed. Both the pups had parvo. We are truly saddened by the matter and I hope Euro puppy is not like that? Please send me the information regarding the shipping fees, vaccines, the true age of the puppies and what is the process to bring these pups into Abu Dhabi.”

Spaying your female dog

May 4, 2011 by Peter

spayed dogUnless you are planning to breed your female dog, it is not a question whether you should spay her or not. Beyond saving you from unwanted litters, spaying your female dog is proven to decrease the chances of developing mammary cancer and other lethal diseases as this article points out.

The question is rather when is the best time to spay your dog? According to the above mentioned article and most veterinarians, the answer is before sexual maturity. It is easy to admit that if your dog is spayed before her first heat cycle (usually 6 months of age), the chances of accidental pregnancy and unwanted litters are zero, which is great, because the problem of overpopulation shouldn't be ignored by any responsible pet owner. So the simple answer may seem to be: the sooner the better.
