Hello from Cheshire, England

Post by titanflux » Wed Jul 30, 2014 1:08 pm

New to the forum. We are looking for a new dog at the moment after we sadly lost ours to cancer a couple of months ago. Is this different to the forum at http://www.tamaskan-dog.co.uk which we can't seem to get registered on?

We were considering a Malamute and have been researching the breed, but then happened across the Tamaskan breed which would likely be better suited for us. I've seen a number of ads on Preloved and the like, however we would only ever get a puppy from a KC Registered breeder. As there is no UK KC standard/registration for Tamaskans, clearly the best way forward for us is a TDR registered breeder and so a TDR registered pup.

Am I right in thinking there are only 2 active UK breeders - Starlight and Nahani? Thgey are the only ones listed in the breeder directory for the UK that I can see?

We would normally have considered a rescue dog, however as we have two cats we really need to introduce a puppy into the new "pack".

Any other advice or pointers in the right direction would also be most useful. Are there any owners not too far from us that might allow us to visit them? We are looking for a pet, not for show or breeding (we always neuter), though with the right dog we may well venture into obedience and agility trials.

Thank you in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forum! So sorry to hear about your pup :(
The http://www.tamaskan-dog.co.uk is run by a mother and daughter team that claim to be the TDR, even thought they had left it themselves back in 2012 after being confronted for many lies and cover-ups. It is usually them who sell their puppies on Preloved.

It is correct that Starlight and Nahani are the only TDR breeders in the UK, though I am not sure if Nahani is active in future plans for breeding. I do believe Starlight Tamaskan actually has a litter of puppies still available for adoption. http://www.tamaskan-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=4901
Other breeders will import as well.

One site, if you're interested, that you may want to check out is http://www.tamaskansagainstpuppymills.com as they list some other responsible breeders, including those not affiliated with the TDR, tells what to look for in the difference between responsible breeder and a puppy mill/ backyard breeder, and also tells about who to avoid.

Hope this information is helpful. Enjoy your time on the forum!
