  1. Looking into getting a puppy that both parents/ lines are best as can be health wise. I really love both the cavalier king charles spaniel and the poodle. The poodle especially due to the almost no shedding part. We have 4 kids(soon to be 19, 15, 13, 8). We also have 3 cats all rescued, ragdoll x, persian x and russian blue x. All desexed vaccinated m'chipped etc all about a year old, russian blue x could be older. Would be happy to adopt a 'younger' dog or get a puppy(which might make it easier for the cats to adapt to her(thinking that would be best).). I'm the mum at home, I'll be the main carer of dog/or pup. Hubby is happy to consider a purebred, but as I said the health is of most importance ( he is really worried spending a good amount to see a pup die from ill health). We are thinking of buying in July 2019. If you know a very good breeder with health/ good lines being top priority it would be awesome. The puppy/dog would get desexed if not already done. Vet that we use can be provided and desexing proof provided to breeder if 'required' for their own peace of mind. More than happy to keepin touch with the breeder, with photos etc even visits if they wish to come see how the pup/dog is going. As I said we are thinking around July 2019. We want to make sure we're ready and well equipped. Looking forward to hear which breeder is recommended in both breed. PS. We are wanting to buy from SE QLD. I don't want the pup/dog having to travel a long way (flights etc). Thankyou Poodle or Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.(PS. I know hubby would prefer the lowest to non existent shedding, but for those that have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, do you find the furmigator to be doing quite a good job so that is almost non existent too?)
  2. Cavalier King Charles. Meet Molly( we didn't end up buying from the breeder we wanted to originally,).
  3. How do you prevent this?

    Roll out up, it might just be perfect when you get home, unrolled and all :D
  4. Buying a puppy

    Have you tried a breeder that will request you to fill out an inquiry form for a puppy or to be put on a waiting list? I've done 2 of them now even though we don't want to get one till mid 2019. All I have to do is within a week of an expected litter is to let the breeder know I'm wanting a pup from that one... Few years ago I kept emailing a breeder from SE QLD, that I had found on the list of breeder here, they never replied... Funny enough one day I happened to see where they lived, I'm happy I never bought from them and the other day proved me right when I found them advertising their papered purebreed ( elsewhere) as well as selling a cross breed that they are purposely breeding. Hang in there, be patient. Still the best in your puppy hunting
  5. Please help me make the right decision

    Have you looked at the older dogs for sale page?? You never know one might suits you to a 't'. https://www.dogzonline.com.au/breeds/mature/american-staffordshire-terrier.asp
  6. Thankyou everyone! No one recommended a breeder but I've received a lot of valuable extra information from those that deal with the breed first hand. I've looked through the breeders list and I've filled out an inquiry form with a specific breeder. I'm only waiting for the time that hubby and I have agreed on to choose from the litters(if any by then) to 'apply' and get everything rolling. I can't wait <3
  7. A good brush daily should keep that under control
  8. Yes I'm starting to think I've read the info at the wrong place! But everything I've read about the Cavalier seems spot on... Thanks
  9. Please help me make the right decision

    I wouldn't buy from a backyard puppy farm. They couldn't care less about the health of the dog plus you have no guarantee of the breed you're really getting. You might end up with a lot of heartache. Jut my opinion.
  10. Thanks. Yes I've read that neurotic, anxious behaviour can be possible in the standard Poodle as well which is they say choosing carefully. Thank you.
  11. I'm home pretty much all the time except a couple morning here and there. Regular walks especially are planned and being with me as a companion. Plus it would encourage my oldest daughter to walk after school with us as she as put on weight (not a lot) but a little due to tegratol. We want a faithful family companion, like hubby says preferably one great with cats also. Thanks again
  12. Thankyou for your input. Standard Poodle I was thinking of. The reason I asked about both breed is from the research I had done (online) is that they are both a great family pet and peaceful with cats as well. I'm home all the time almost except for a couple morning here and there and occasional afternoon out (shopping). I most admit that I'm more inclined toward the Cavalier King Charles spaniel. I'm more then happy to brush every day any ways. The reason why we're thinking July 2019, is actually to also make sure we choose the right breed. Really love the information you've given me.

    Maybe that will help? Challenge Description Technique Challenge: Loosely defined, bokeh is the quality and "feel" of the out-of-focus foreground or background elements of a photo. It isn't very interesting by itself, but take a photograph whose subject is enhanced by the bokeh of the background. http://www.dpchallenge.com/challenge_resul...HALLENGE_ID=297
