  • Tara Kelly - 2011-12-04
    Hello, I was wondering if you had any babies due coming up to the spring. I have been searching for a breeder for a very long time. I was raised up on a farm in Australia and our family was part of WIRES, which cares for native animals. I have quite a lot of experience in raising wildlife. I have done a lot of research on the muntjac and seems to be the perfect fit for me and my lifestyle. I don't have another pets as I have been trying for nearly 2years to get in contact with a reportable breeder. I hope to hear from you soon.

There are some misconceptions that i don't see written here. I have a female indoor muntjac that also goes out to play within a 7 ft privacy fence. Indeed they are small and sweet, mine has never shown a mean bone in her little body. But this is not a pet for just anyone, especially a child. First you can not hold them. their little hooves are like rocks and their instinct to flee will send the feet kicking and really hurt someone bad. they will sit beside you, play, follow you, lick you etc. but you can't pick them up, i had mine at just a few weeks of age. Bottle feeding and feeding them fruit and vegetables multiple times a day is a must. can really get your budget if not prepared. Bottle feeding for a year is advised. potty training to a litter box is quick as long as you are persistant and since you can't just pick em up and put them there you have to be creative as i was. took about 3 weeks. You can't use sand or you end up having mud. when they pee its as much as a horse and it stinks horibly. they pee multiple times a day, although they don't drink much water, comes from fruit and veggy's. Litter needs to be clay mixed with possibly cedar and should be changed daily or every 2 days. they chew everything, they don't outgrow it like puppy's. cords, books (no low bookshelves or near any furniture)I love our muntjac but its work. Not like having a cat. We are installing a doggie door so maybe that will help with the pee smell. also without the mixture of cedar, they track litter throughout house. If you have a doggie bed or something simular they usually pee on it because they like soft things to pee on. I'm glad i don't have carpet, it would be impossible to get the urine out. They do adjust to hardwood and tile but at first you'll need runners if you have them. They never learn to run on slick floors just walk. They need outside time to run. If given the chance to jump on the bed you'll be in trouble. lol

    This is wonderful information, helps fill out the 'pet experience' and concerns to be aware of. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge.
  • kat - 2013-01-30
    ps. the herd you buy them from should be checked for brusalosis (sure i spelled that wrong). Ours didn't come with the paper from the breeder and had to be ck'd for it in order to be registered with the state. (most states require registration) ours was then, by law microchipped.(vets office,does everything) I recommend cking with your state requirements before buying one. safety of your new pet and family. You know everyone is going to want to visit your muntjac so its recommended to follow you state laws for that reason too. i have never seen signs of worms or fleas. i was told they were resistant to that stuff and so far it has proven to be true.

Hi there, I've always wanted to have a little deer fawn living with us and bring one up from a baby. I have worked previously at rehabilitation centres and helped look after them so I understand how much they love their bottles and how much care goes into looking after them. We have a pretty large garden with lots of trees so he or she would feel very at home with us. I was wondering how much they are to purchase also I live in England in a city called Sheffield would it be legal for me to own one and would it be a terrible journey over for the poor dear, if you do know any UK based livestock suppliers that would be great to know about them. I am serious about this and may consider getting a couple so they wouldn't feel lonely, I am a caring person and I could offer them a great life and I would enjoy having them as pets and bringing them up. It would be great to hear back soon. Kindest Regards, Caroline

    I don't know what the name of  organization would be in the UK - here it is Fish and Game.  There has to be some organization that is repsonsible for control of permits, what a person is allowed to have as a pet.  They are responsible to make sure that animals are treated well by zoos and humans that own or have them.  They inspect various breeders facilities - as to what that organization is by you - I just don't know but that would be the place to start.  Muntjac deer are great and it is good you have the experience.  However, because you have a garden - you would also need to find out if anything in the garden would be toxic to the deer.  There were several plants and trees that were toxic to the little guys in Florida and I am sure in various areas in the US. These guys can jump - a 4 foot fence is nothing so you would need a 6 foot fence. If there are hawks or eagles - not sure about UK - you also need protection over the top of the fence for these guys.  They are wonderful but you have to sorta get creative with housing.    If there is a breeder in the UK -and that you can probably find out by just looking up on the web.  Having them travel a distance - I just wouldn't try it.  I doubt a baby would live through it - they are timid things and when young need to be fed every couple of hours and that is primarily at night.  They want their bottle around 4pm and every two hours till the sun comes up.  Traveling as a baby on a plane would be really difficult.
