Sam and John from Dundee Scotland
We had been looking for the right Cavapoo for almost a year and it was actually by chance I came across Blackberry pups on my search in early June 2020, I got in touch with Dawn and Steve and it just so happened that they had a Cavapoo boy looking for a home!!! It was perfect timing! After an initial call to get more information and to get to know each other, John and I felt very comfortable about Dawn and Steve, and hopefully, they felt good about us too, as aware there where other people very interested in the puppy too. Well, after another few calls Dawn agreed that John and I could have the puppy who is now called Fredy Miller.
The process was very easy with Dawn and Steve as we had regular contact and update pictures due to Covid-19 and the large distance between us (we live in Broughty Ferry, near Dundee, Scotland) we couldn't visit Fredy face to face before picking him up but we did have facetime sessions to see Fredy with his brothers and sisters as well as his parents. On the day of pick up, we arrived at 9am sharp ready to start our new life with Fredy. Dawn had him ready with his little goody bag of treats, toys, pads, and many more items which were great and of course a supply of his food. Our long journey of 400miles started and Fredy mainly slept the whole way and was brilliant in the car. I sat with him in the back to comfort him but he looked so chilled out the whole time it was amazing for such a young little puppy!
Dawn was also very patient with my weekly questions leading up to us picking Fredy up, she provided insight and guidance when required. I had contact with many breeders in the process of searching for Fredy and to be very honest a lot of which were not so helpful at all, Dawn and Steve have a clear passion for their business and treat every pup as a member of their family which has given Fredy a really great foundation in life.
Fredy has slept in his crate every night since coming home, he loves his bed! He is on a raw diet and eats what he is given, as cavapoos are notoriously fussy eaters we wanted to make sure he was given a diet that he looked forward to eating each mealtime and so far that has been the case largely. Fredy is the most loving puppy, makes us laugh every day, and has filled our lives with joy. Everyone loves Fredy and he is just so cute you just want to cuddle him all the time!
Fredy has been with us now for almost 11 weeks and he has made himself at home and seems very comfortable in his forever home, he is attending weekly puppy playgroups and 1-2-1 puppy training to give him the best start we can provide. He is 99% house trained as we have not had an accident in the house for weeks now so that is great. He is intelligent and naughty but its hard to be angry with him, so we just smile!
I have already recommended Blackberry pups to friends and would not hesitate to say if you want a cavapoo you are in the best hands with Dawn and Steve who are clearly passionate about their Dogs.
Sam, John and Fredy.
