Where’s Mum? – Puppies and their mothers

For anyone who loves dogs, you will know that in order for dogs to have the best start in life, puppies should stay with their mother until they are 8 weeks old. Preloved strongly oppose puppy trafficking and want to show its members what to do if you want to sell, buy or rehome a puppy. Remember to always ask "where's mum?"

Find the Ideal Gift on Preloved this Christmas - The Stigma of Second Hand

We have discussed previously how a word can be very harming. To many, the term “second hand” often is tainted with images of something being broken, dirty or frumpy; but while that may be true in some cases, in many situations it just isn’t the case. At Preloved, we believe second hand items can make excellent gifts, it's just a question of finding the perfect one! Click through to see what we have found onsite.
