Just wondering if there's anyone from NI on here with cockapoos? We're based in Belfast so would just be interested to know?

I totally missed this thread. We are in Belfast too. I'm interested to know where you got Charlie and what you thought of the breeder? It's very difficult to find reputable breeders in NI and I want another cockapoo in the next year!

It's great to see another local cockapoo owner! My husband actually got Charlie as a Christmas surprise, all I know was he got him from somewhere near Fermanagh? From what my husband was telling me he was a little dubious as there were a few other dogs breeding there and it seemed more business like rather than for the love of the dogs. But he was smitten with Charlie as soon as he saw him and couldn't have thought of him going to another home. He saw both parents and they seemed well cared for, the dad was identical to my husbands parents poodle who died last year so he really was torn.

I try not to think too much about it, Charlie was in good health when we got him, well socialised and the greatest pup I have ever owned. I probably would have done a little more research into breeders but all my husband knew was that I wanted a cockapoo for a long time and in his opinion if he isn't from a reputable breeder then at least we are giving him the best possible life and I can't complain at him too much as Charlie was best possible surprise ever for our first Christmas as a married couple!

I had Charlie at his first puppy class last week and met another cockapoo, she was a gorgeous girl and the owner said he got her from a breeder in saintfield? Where's your little one from?

Delighted to hear there is a reputable breeder in Saintfield, just up the road from us... Literally! I have searched and trawled all the local pet/animal ads and vets etc trying to find out about Cockapoo breeders in NI! I have sent them an email, so thank you!

My story is very similar to yours, we got Lola from Donaghmore, Dungannon. TBH in hindsight it wasn't the best place. Lola had quite a worm burden when we got her and I just didn't feel overly happy with the breeder. I couldn't have left her there though. She needed us and she is the best girl we could have hoped for. We adore her and she us. Was meant to be. I have learned though and ILMC has been invaluable in educating me. We were lucky with Lola, but would worry we wouldn't be so fortunate next time hence me being on a mad perfect breeder hunt. :)

Ruth - I am getting excited on your behalf 😄. It is almost as if the stars are aligning! Hopefully the breeder will be just what you are looking for x

You must be close to me Ruth, we're in four winds area! I don't know much about the breeder in saintfield, the guy didn't say much about them but I also know there is a breeder in hillsborough, my friend was enquiring about their cockapoo pups when she fell in love with Charlie but I do think they were a lot more expensive than other cockapoo pups in NI but I suppose you get what you pay for!

Cockapoo pups Northern Ireland

Hi I am just new to this forum, though I have an apricot cockapoo Milly who will be 4 yrs old next week. We got her in England and 2 years ago we went to England to mate her with an apricot cockapoo. She had 4 adorable pups then! We have just been to England again and the mating has been successful and her pups are due the being of June. They will be F2 (2nd generation) as Milly and the dad Monty are F1 cockapoo's.
I have seen cockapoo pups advertised on gumtree and would doubt the parents being pedigree, we have all the papers for Milly's parents and Monty's owners gave me copies of his parentage and certificates of his eye test being clear.

If you would be interested in a pup let me know. I will hopefully manage to get a few photos on the forum.

Just got this post, today, but see it is dated the 10th June, so don't know if you mean today and tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday?
Tomorrow would suit.
Where are you? And could you give me your email please
I'm waiting for 2 people to confirm if they definitely want a pup then I will know how many I have left. Their eyes haven't opened yet as they are only 2 weeks today 17th.

Esther
