    Dog Breeders in Hong Kong

    Hello there! My family and I are considering to get a dog. Currently, we haven't settled down with a certain breed, but we are aiming at middle-sized dogs. We face the problem of where to get the dog/puppy from. I have heard from friends that there are plenty of breeders in Yeun Long. However, we are looking into reputable breeders that produce high quality dogs under high-quality circumstances. Please help me suggest a suitable breeder, thanks!

    You must be new on this forum. Can of worms, opened.

    By the way, if you've not decided on a breed - visit one of the dozen or so shelters around town and consider adopting.

    Don't think there are any breeders in town who offer "breeding under high quality circumstances"

    We'd do the same if a dog came on here and posted about selling their owner.

    Never mind...

    Hello @ChrisLk
    Here in Hong Kong, we express our misanthropy, racism, elitism, classism and general contempt for our fellow man through our professed love of dogs.
    If you actually want a dog, just go and buy one. These boards are for piling kudos on ourselves and piling shit on others.
    P.S. Dogs are stupid.

    How about Fostering first.? There are some amazing dogs at all the shelters looking for home. We got a lovely Beagle from HKDR.

    The reason why I left that group....when the original moderator was in charge, the forum was ok, but then it was taken over by a gang of Rottweilers and pittbulls. Members were crucified for saying just the wrong thing.....or how one of those feral dogs perceived it. It is like this also on the Singapore Pet Adoption FB forum.

    @chrislhk there is generally no such thing as a "high quality" breeder in Hong Kong. The SPCA has worked to change some laws recently which ban "hobby breeders" so that the industry can now be more regulated. Breeders are required now to have a license and must display it in their shop. Breeders have some bad reputations here of keeping animals in poor condition and throwing them out when they're no longer of use, like when they get sick or are too old. As such, you are gambling with your money if you buy a dog because you can't be sure of its health and condition. Meanwhile there are over a thousand dogs put down each year in Hong Kong due to a shortage of homes. Public housing does not allow dogs.

    There are quite a few purebred dogs that get dumped at the shelters, so like others suggest, please keep an eye there and what you're looking for will with time probably come up! There are also lots of very cute mutts.

    Hong Kong Dog Rescue can be a little tricky for someone not familiar with shelters, so you may find an organization like the SPCA a little easier to deal with as they are more corporate and less personal. Like Rani said, fostering is a good way to start because you're not yet committed, and with the SPCA you after fostering you get first priority for adopting.

    One huge advantage of adopting through the charities is that they have taken the time to give the animal a thorough vet check and observation and know the personality, so they can help you get a better match and ensure a healthy dog!

    If you have any trouble with dealing with the animal charities, let us know and I think a few of the posters here can give you some tips.

    There's some really cute puppies at the SPCA right now:

    There may be more in a few weeks - apparently dumping season begins a few weeks after Christmas puppies turn into white elephants for some.
