Gemma has given birth to a litter of 8 puppies, 4 males and 4 females, on 14 February 2024. The sire is Bear, Putjade Push the Button. The puppies will be ready for their new homes on 10 April 2024. One puppy is available from this litter.
Other plans for 2024
Just before Christmas 2023 Paddington mated a show line bitch who lives in West Wales and who is now blooming suitably. We are expecting 7-10 puppies to be born near Tenby on about 23 February 2024 and ready for their new homes on about 19 April 2024.
In January 2024 Paddington mated a show line bitch who is the full sister of one of his previous mates. All being well this will mean puppies born near Exeter on about 25 March 2024 and ready for their new homes on about 20 May 2024.
In March 2024 we anticipate that Paddington will mate a bitch who is half working line and half show line. All being well this will mean puppies who are three quarters show line born in South Lincolnshire in May 2024 and ready for their new homes in July 2024.
Also in March 2024 we anticipate that Paddington will mate a bitch who is show line. All being well this will also mean puppies born near Hereford in May 2024 and ready for their new homes in July 2024.
In July 2024 we anticipate that Paddington will mate a bitch who is working line and with whom he has had puppies before. All being well this will mean puppies who are half show line born in Oxfordshire in September 2024 and ready for their new homes in November 2024.
In August 2024 we anticipate that Paddington will mate a bitch who is three quarters show line. All being well this will mean puppies who are seven eighths show line born near Newport in October 2024 and ready for their new homes in December 2024.
In November 2024 we anticipate that Florence will be in season and ready for mating. All being well, this will mean puppies born here in January 2025 and ready for their new homes in March 2025.
There are likely to be some planned litters that we do not yet know about. We generally know of puppies from our line approximately every two months, so if none of the litters mentioned is at the right time for you or they are all fully booked then please check back later or ask to go on our mailing list.

Can I choose my puppy?
All our puppies are lovely, and they will all grow into beautiful adult dogs

During the visit at five weeks old, you may express a preference for a

As I get to know the new owners and understand their lifestyle, this helps me to instinctively realise which puppy might be best for them.
Deciding on their final homes at eight weeks old is very much like putting the last pieces in a jigsaw, or completing a lego model. All the groundwork has been done and eventually you see the final picture. Everyone has always been delighted with the new addition to their family. Many people are now returning to us for another dog, and we welcome them back as old friends.
