The photos show Tilda and her puppies – all born January 9th in a rescue centre in Ireland (mum arrived pregnant).
We have around 12 – 15 puppies due to arrive at the end of April. We have 2 mums in 2 different rescue centres in Ireland who have both given birth to large litters. Some of the dogs will be rehomed in Ireland but the rest will come to KGR for rehoming. The pups were all born early January but they cannot travel until near the end of April. They have to be at least 12 weeks old before they can have a vaccination for rabies and then they have to wait 3 weeks before they can travel. So they will a healthy 15-16 weeks old when they arrive. The are a mix of colours and both male and female.
The pups are being reared with mum and will be socialised. They will have all of their vaccinations before travelling and must be certified fit to travel by a vet, just before the leave Ireland.
We are advertising them now so you can follow their journey – we will be posting lots of pictures on facebook of them as they grow and become individual dogs and not just the puppies. They are not for rehoming until they arrive with KGR but we just felt you would want to follow the as they grow.
If you are considering a puppy please make sure you have the time for one. They are really time consuming and hard work – although also great fun and rewarding. Even if you work from home they demand attention and are just like having toddlers in the house. You will need to have time to take the pups to training classes.
You will need to be around a lot of the time – puppies cannot be left for 3-4 hours each day. It is not fair on the puppy and you will risk having a very disruptive, naughty puppy on your hands by the time they are 9-10 months old. Putting a puppy in a crate all day is not a viable option. We often get asked to bring pups into KGR from owners who bought them as puppies from a breeder because they were refused a pup with a rescue (because of working hours) – after 3-4 months the owners want the dog to come into the rescue because they cannot cope (the same reasons the rescue didn’t want them to have a pup).
The pups will all have a pet passport.

Please make sure you are in a position to adopt a dog, before completing the online adoption form. We are unable to hold onto dogs for more than a few days, once you have passed your homecheck.
We do rehome throughout the UK, so long as you are prepared to travel to meet the dog within a few days of applying for him and then again to adopt him, once you have passed your homecheck.
