http://littlerascalsuk.com/componen...ace/page,show_ad/catid,7/adid,1559/Itemid,44/ Hi does anyone have experience with this puppy seeling set up?
It looks to me awfully like a puppy farm, with so many breeds available and the premium rate phone number!
So has anyone heard of them or know of them? Its also a bit worrying that this site comes up as an advertisement when logging on to ILMC:(
Just realised that link hasn't tranfered but website is littlerascalsuk.com

They have so many puppies :( Surely they won't be able to socialise any of them, or let the mummys have a little relaxing time with the owners. :( :(

Everything about it look bad, no mention at all of health test for any of the breeds.
Just hope new people to the site would not take the advertisement as some sort of endorsement by ILMC:eek:

All the Ads that apear at the top of ILMC are not ads that ILMC promotes, they are generated by google, so it jsut means that they have a paid ad campaigne with google

Amanda is right; they are google ads. They are usually for something local to you or for something you have been googling recently, it seems. Right now mine is for a newspaper in my city but when I was googling pet insurance, that was what it was for.

Hi Mo I know they are google ads, I just hope that EVERYONE knows that. Think its really off that you can come on to this forum trying to find good advice, research etc and places like that are put right under your nose. I hope that people realise that the ads are nothing to do with the forum,thats what I meant:)
Donna glad your friend got her pup elsewhere.

So, what checks are done to get a licence? If your friend thought it was bad and walked away, who is buying the pups? That's very worrying

Hi Karen!
Yah it is true that I am sure not everyone relizes that the ads are generated by google...hopefully people just educate themselves enough....nothing that can be done in terms of the ads....but hoping that people do their due diligence in where they get their pups from. i have recently found out that there is a huge ring of Amish puppy mills in the province where I live. it is really just horrid.

They are on the cheaper side for cockerpoo's that is enough to get some people interested. It just says licensed, would be interesting what exactly the license is for, they are a farm too so perhaps a general livestock license. Obviously that is my personal guess and could be wide of the mark. Just had another look and there is no mention what so ever of ANY health testing at all, pedigree or cross.

Aparently it is quite a big problem here..it really makes me sick, they let you into the farm...and ususally wont show you the parents who never get to see the light of day...it is disgusting some of the stories.

Oh I might be wrong but when I was researching... I found info that said they sold pups that other breeders were left with and had nt managed to sell and advertised on Breedersonline under a womans name.. I cant remember it but would know it if I saw it again. They were advertising blue roans when i was looking, but recognised them. If my memory serves me right there was also info of people getting poorly pups from them. :eek:hno:

We actually went there to look at puppies a couple of years ago, but came away. Though we do know a few people who have had puppies from there.

Came across Little Rascals about 18 months ago, more staff and more breeds advertised now. I didn't like it as it looks more of a business than a caring breeder.
We have a similar set up close to us that claim to sell puppy's for a nationwide breeder network its also a licensed breeder.
If not puppy farms taking over were pet shops left off.

The 'BBC Inside out' did an undercover program a couple of years ago at this place and recommended people not to buy puppies from them, but this was a couple of years ago so maybe they have improved their set up now?!
