If you're staying longterm in Singapore and plan to take the dog with you when you leave, you might want to consider adopting from an animal shelter like the SPCA (62875355) or the Animal Lover's League. The SPCA has many pedigree breeds to choose from and you can pop by the pound on any day (except thursday) to have a look for yourself. You should be able to interact with the dogs themselves and feel free to approach the keepers if you have any questions! :) Of course, they have non-purebreds that are just as deserving and in need of a loving and permanent home and you might want to consider these as well! Many of the breeders and petshops here do not practise responsible animal care (in terms of breeding practices, housing, sanitation, parasite prevention, vaccination schedules, contracts etc) and you should be very careful should you choose to deal with them. I would advise against it.
Pet adoption/purchase is a serious decision that could possibly involve 15-20 years of animal care and it is very traumatising for the pet if the owner leaves and decides to leave it behind or put it up for adoption (again). If you're not sure how long you're going to be here or you're not staying for very long, you might want to hold off on getting a pet first till things settle a little. There are many other things to do in Singapore and many different social/special interest groups that may appeal to you, and also volunteer opportunities available. These and having new friends may better help you to fill in time, along with being a lot less work! :) All the best.
