Hello:) I'm new on here, ive been looking for a while now for the perfect pupy to join my little family!
We live in lovely Devon but seem to be struggling to find the right puppy so any help would be great!
We are looking for a golden/apricot boy or girl, preferably from a show type cocker, and even more preferably an American cocker! Would love a smaller size dog if possible.

Am willing to travel up to 100miles or could always meet halfway! Looking for one to join our family October November time but don't mind waiting if a perfect puppy is out there or yet been born!

be very wairy of adds saying they will meat you half way, not all are genuine, and their are more and more scams and people loose alot of money and idealy you want to be able to go to where your pup is was born.

Have tried those places and have sent emails so just waiting back really. Okay, I understand. Before I bought I would check with you guys that it was a reputable source

Good Luck with your search and please keep us posted .... just enjoy it :)

Hi Laura,

Welcome to the forum! :welcome:

I am new on here as well and am hoping to welcome a Cockapoo into our lives Spring 2012. It sounds like you know exactly what you want which is a great start! I would add, however, that I’ve been trying to find the right breeder/combination for months so you may have to prepare yourself for a bit of a wait – reputable breeders are often so popular that their puppies are booked up well in advance. I know it's hard - once you've made the decision to get a puppy you want it to happen NOW NOW!

Anyway, here are the breeders in your area:

Cornwall

Devon
http://www.breedersonline.co.uk/dog-breeder.asp?userid=6158
http://www.breedersonline.co.uk/dog-breeder.asp?userid=5860

Somerset

http://www.breedersonline.co.uk/dog-breeder.asp?userid=1958

Dorset
http://www.breedersonline.co.uk/dog-breeder.asp?userid=5621
http://www.breedersonline.co.uk/dog-breeder.asp?userid=5893

Whether any of them ‘do’ American crosses, I don’t know.

When calling to enquire it’s a good idea to ask if the parents have been health-checked (PRA specifically) – we actually asked to see the Poodle Dad’s PRA certificate when we went to view puppies as this disease is just so awful you wouldn’t want to take any risks.

As for a breeder meeting you half way – personally I wouldn’t advise this. Firstly, it is important that you witness the living/breeding/health conditions of the parent dogs and secondly you’re more likely to get a dog that is suitable for you as a family if you meet it in ‘the fur’ first.

Hope this helps!
