I purchased our puppy through premier pups and I was very satisfied with my purchased. My puppy was shipped to me the following day and they helped me through the process of getting her adjusted to her new home. Healthy puppy! We are very much in love with her. She is now three months and loves her new home and family
I adopted Alpine (now Winston) three weeks ago from premier pups and I couldn’t be happier! This is my very first dog and I had no idea what to expect but thrilled I went with premier pups. They checked in with us multiple times after he arrived to us and got back to me within seconds if I had any questions. Which was so comforting to me with my first fur baby! We went to the vet a week after he came home to us and the vet said how happy, energetic, and extremely healthy he was! He is just the cutest, sweetest, funniest little guy I’ve ever met and I can’t imagine my life without him. If you are debating on getting a dog from premier pups, this is your sign! Do it, do it now! You won’t regret it, I know I didn’t!!
Brought Dolly home 2 years ago this Thanksgiving! She is the sweetest fur baby and I tell everyone how amazing Premier Pups facility, and staff was when we came to get our girl. We will definitely be back for Dolly’s little brother or sister :) highly recommended!!
We are so very blessed and happy to have added these sweet babies to our family. Now named Rumi, formerly Nelson & Sasha, formerly Nayla. now at 14lb., & 10lb. fully grown, we couldn’t be happier. They have added so much joy and warmth to our family. They are loving, fun, energetic, attentive, very intelligent, playful, alert & interested in everything going on around them. They acclimated easily to our family routine and get along well with their fur baby brothers and sisters. We highly recommend this excellent reputable business.
We got Lacey 1 year ago and we couldn’t be happier! She is a very loving, caring and very smart companion! We love her so much and enjoy her daily! Premier Pups made the entire experience easy and very enjoyable. I’m so grateful we found you and trusted in you! Thank you for my sweet baby girl Lacey!
Our journey began almost two weeks ago. Olivia is such a playful addition to our family. We could not have asked for an easier process with such supportive staff checking in on our puppy and her progress throughout the transition. We will definitely be recommending all our family and friends to Premier Pups!
As a first time pet family, buying a puppy was a pretty big deal. Lucky for us Premier Pups made the process very easy! From helping us choose a specific breed based on our lifestyle to letting us know what to expect in the days, weeks , & months after bringing our puppy home… They were extremely helpful in every aspect of the process. 9 months later, and we can’t imagine our lives without our Maltipoo...Pixie:-)
Buzz is now named Cooper . I am so in love with this little guy. He is happy, healthy and a wonderful addition to my home. At first Cooper was having a rough time transitioning into my home and Priemier Pups went above and beyond helping with the transition. They have called me every day checking on him.
Our family is so in love with Aspen now known as Leah. Our kids always wanted to get a puppy but we weren’t planning on getting one until we just thought of getting one during Covid. We looked everywhere and came across Premier Pups and we fell in love with all their pups. We’ve had Leah for about 5 weeks now and she has brought so much joy to our family and she has adjusted so well and quick into our family. We’re so happy that we got her through Premier Pups, they are so caring and friendly and we would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a puppy.
We recently suffered the loss of our precious Bubba-Maltese but were very nervous about how to go about getting a new puppy. My friend has a beautiful fur baby from Premier and I decided to give them a try. The entire process was seamless from looking at a video of our fur baby-Rocco to receiving him from the transport. We were walked through the entire process. Roger the transporter kept us updated as to their arrival time. Rocco was clean and the van was immaculate. I received his welcome packet of food, medication, harness, leash and bed. Roger even filled me in on when Rocco ate last and what he ate. Premier has reached out to me twice already to see how Rocco is adjusting to his new home. What a pleasure dealing with Premier. We love Rocco and his is a fantastic addition to our family. We look forward to many years of pleasure with him.
