Find me on Instagram as Silvestre.showdogs. On Instagram I post photos daily and have a huge following of people. Dont just look click follow so I come up in your newsfeeds each day. I do not post lots of puppy photos however as we are cautious of theft. But you can see the kind of lives our dogs live through instagram. It gives you a window to the kind of dogs they are, sociable, loving and fun.
HUNGARIAN VIZSLA Our handsome Indiana has mated Brooklyn. Puppies expected in the first week of January 2020. Their is a waiting list for this litter and if you wish to be added then do get in touch. I have got to rewrite the artwork above as since doing this Indie has won again in Belgium making him half way towards a Belgium title and International champion. We hope eventually to make him into several countries champions. We have enjoyed every moment of owning Indie as he is a complete loveable goof ball. Everyone that meets him falls in love. He spent half of his day in belgium upside down letting strangers tickle his tummy. A great temperament to stamp into his babies. We look forward to Brooklyns litter, and we are keeping a girl from the litter as we think they will be rather special babies.
PUG Rita is in season and will be mated in about 9-12 days time. Rita is a very fit and healthy Pug she has had one previous litter in 2018. She was an excellent mother. This time we are going to use our own boy Bruce, who said he is very pleased about that. Bruce is a handsome Pug, neither are over weight or over sized Pugs. They are a lovely manageable size. This litter will produce Fawn babies only. Both Pugs do not have too many nose folds, and clean and bright eyes.
OLDER DOGS From time to time we may have an older dog available which their family can no longer keep. So if you are looking for an older dog its always worth emailing me just in case one crops up. Or we may even know of one through another breeder. If we have an older dog available ourselves then we do not charge money for one. As long as the dog has an excellent home. We do recommend breed rescues as a way of getting hold of pedigree dogs. Because most general rescues only have cross breeds available. If we can help guide you into a dog that is in need of a home, then do email me. We prefer breed rescues over general rescues because we do not believe in the kill policy in main stream rescues. We aim to help anyone who is looking for a dog. French bulldog saviours is an charity run group by a wonderful team of women who save literally French bulldogs and other breeds from the meat trade, and puppy farms abroad. Not all end up a happy story but many do. Also the Pug Club welfare team are fantastic and have dogs in of a regular basis. Again we are happy to email you everyones details over to you.
I find that many people who read my website miss out this section. As I am sent emails or text asking questions which are in this section. So please do read this as it will answer a lot of your questions.
Hungarian Vizsla puppies leave our home at 8 weeks of age.
Pug puppies leave our home between 9-10 weeks of age.
I will only go out to stud and use males that are fully health tested.
All my breeding dogs are health tested not only the relevant KC tests but we do lots of private tests using saliva or blood dna testing. Plus an annual heart check by our vet.
Our puppies are NOT DOCKED, not altered in any way. Unless their was a medical reason.
Dew claws are NOT removed, please see my dew claw page for more info.
All our dogs are Kennel club registered. The Kennel club is the only true legitimate dog registration company in the UK. Their are private databases now available but they are not the true governing body. They do fake registrations.
A 5 generation pedigree is printed by us for you.
I do not breed cross breeds so please do not send me emails to ask if I will cross a Vizsla and a Pug for you. This will never happen here.
All our puppies are micro chipped and registered to Animal tracker. You have 14 days to transfer ownership from me to you for free. By law puppies must be first registered to the breeder, so their is a trace of where the dogs are coming from.
I do NOT breed unrecognised colours. In Vizsla the only colour recognised is Russet Gold. So if you see registered any other colour they are cross bred dogs being falsely registered as pedigree. With Pugs the only true colours are Fawn, Apricot, Black and Silver. In French bulldogs the only recognised colours are fawn, brindle, fawn pied, brindle pied and pied black and white. A ny other colour is unrecognised as a result of cross breeding. Fawn is also fawn not lilac fawn, blue fawn and so on.
A breeding endorsement is put on all puppies unless I know you well. This means you have been sold a puppy as a pet dog. I will not lift and endorsement. If however you come to me before a deposit is placed and tell me you wish to breed then if you enter into a contract with us on our breeding terms we will then lift the endorsement at 2 years for girls and 18 months for males. If I know you through the show world then we will not put an endorsement on.
A puppy is only reserved by deposit. A £300 deposit is required. This is a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit and if you back out from the sale of the dog the deposit is kept by us. So think carefully before you place a deposit. The terms are clear. We have to take deposits to stop being messed about by people. I take the deposit by bank transfer.
Each breed is priced differently. With all the new regulations we have now put our prices up. I hope this can remain the same now for a couple of years.
As soon as puppies are born I wait 48 hours and then I’m happy to take a deposit.
I reserve the right to return your deposit if I think you can not make a good home for one of my puppies.
When puppies are 5 weeks of age you can come and see them. You may take photos of the puppies but you can not post these on social media as this may contain our home, and gives thieves a good idea what’s in peoples houses.
When the puppy leaves you will need to bring the cash for final payment. A full receipt is given.
I provide for your puppy a baby blanket which is rubbed on mum for familiar smells. I also make the “Special Cushions”. These cushions are sprayed with a something which helps dogs with stress.
All our puppies have collars on them so we can identify them. These collars are not suitable to put leads on as they are quick release collars. So you will need to bring a collar for your baby on collection.
At 7 weeks of age our veterinary surgeon does a full health check on all the babies. A letter is printed by the vet with the microchip number on the letter. This is vital these days for getting insurance on your babies.
You are advised as we have paid for a health check to leave the puppy for two weeks to settle into their new homes before going off and getting vaccine. I always tell people to go to U TUBE and write in Dr Ronald Schultz and vaccines. He is a scientist which makes vaccine and will give you the correct advice for vaccine protocols.
A puppy vaccinated whilst stressed can actually end up with serious health problems which is due to the vaccines. So let your baby settle in for at least 2 weeks.
The day after you have taken the puppy I will text you to make sure all is well.
If you wish to work your dog let me know. If you wish to work your dog let me know.
We can not guarantee your dog will be the next top show dog, or working gundog or agility dog as how the dog develops is down to you.
At 6 weeks of age our puppies are flea treated.
At 3,5,7 weeks are wormed with either Panacur or drontal. Your puppy will of been wormed 3-4 times during his or her time with us.
Leaving Dates are usually weekends so Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning depending on the birth date. This is great for people who wish to have a long weekend at home with the puppy. We do not sell to anyone working full time.
PHOTOS: I know how exciting it is, and you want photos all the time but the truth is babies rarely sit still but take pictures whilst you are here. You can not share photos on social media of my homes.
Please note that I do not keep puppies longer than the leaving date, as I believe this is key with development and behaviour later down the line. A Vizsla is one of those breeds which should of been allowed to leave at 7 weeks but the law in 8 weeks. A dog that is rough with others and bully’s them can continue this into adulthood. The dog that was picked on can be nervous during its lifetime. So its unfortunate that they did a blanket all dogs can leave at 8 weeks. We keep pugs to 9-10 weeks as they are behind in development to an HPR breed. So this is why we say dogs leave at 8 weeks and its very important.
I’m asked all the time will I take the dog back in whilst people go on holiday. I can not because I would need a separate license to board dogs. The law changed October 18 so now all home boarders must be licensed. If however you wish me to keep a puppy just a few days extra then on occasion I will do. But we can not stress enough the importance of leaving at 8 weeks.
I will choose your puppy for you. At 6 1/2 weeks puppies start to show their behaviour. I found years ago when I let people just choose the dog, the were choosing the wrong energy levels for them. Since I started to choose I have had less dogs go through rescue. Also when people visit they can not even tell which is a boy or girl sometimes, so they sure wont know which dog to pick for their family.
Hidden pages, anyone can click on it, but you wont see the files. You need to add in the password. Ask me once your deposit is placed.
4 kilos of free puppy meat is available from natural instinct with a voucher I shall give to you when you visit. You will be also given a diet sheet relevant to that puppy.
No advice is given through social media. You can text me you need some help with.....and I’llring you back.
If you suspect your dogs not well in its lifetime, I am the last person you should contact. You should contact firstly your vet who will then diagnose what’s wrong. Then you can let me know and I can give more advice.
