Occasionally I have Papillons for sale.
At the moment I have older dogs, which are looking for permanent loving homes.
I shall not be breeding for the foreseeable future, but if you are looking for a puppy, you are welcome to contact me, as I am more than likely to know where there may be some available from a reputable breeder, or alternatively you can contact Margaret Uwin, who runs the Papillon Puppy Register UK and she can, hopefully steer you in the direction of a good breeder, that will hopefully be nearer to where you live.
PLEASE, what ever you do. Do not be tempted to buy from the internet. I have just recently seen an advert for a litter, online for an horrendously high price, which are far too young to be sold. Also far too young to inoculated (I doubt that it would be much good anyway as, presumbly they would have their first jab at six weeks, so would possibly still have their immunity from their dam at such a young age)
They are not registered with the kennel Club, apparently to protect them somehow and the person then goes on to say that, if they were, then the price would be even higher!
Most importantly, there is no mention of health checks. Health checks are one of the most critical questions that you should ask, when buying a puppy.
All I have to add to this is do your homework, because a puppy from that vender (I can’t say breeder, as apparently it is their first litter) is actually more than double to what, I and most other breeders (not all) would charge and I have nearly fifty years experience of breeding dogs and over forty years of breeding, showing and judging Papillons.
The oldest Papillon, on record was twenty seven years old. Obviously that’s exceptional, but the average lifespan of my line, (obviously with a few exceptions) seems to be around the seventeen years which, obviously is a long time, but I can guarantee that a good breeder will give new owners, all the help and support that you may need at any time, after all, what’s the use of having all that experience with Papillons, without sharing it.
It takes roughly about a month for a puppy or adult dog to settle into their new home, which is why my older dogs always go to their new, prospective homes, on a month's trial period. I want only the best for my dogs which is why the new owner has to be completely happy with the new member of their family, but more importantly my dogs need to be completely happy in his/her new home. The reason I am letting them go, in the first place is so that they will get the individual attention, which with the best will in the world, I cannot give to them, but most importantly is that they live a long and happy life with their new family.
I wish you well in finding your perfect Papillon, but as I say, take your time to find the right one that is suitable for you and your family.
