Say Hello to Paxton, the amazing mini Goldendoodle. Paxton is assimilating quite well in his new environment and doesn't seem to mind the nice sunny weather of Miami FL! A special thanks to Premier Pups for ensuring our adoption of Pax (and his subsequent travel to Miami) was as smooth as possible. We've adopted wonderful pets before but this a first, in terms of travel to his new home. Premier Pups was so patient, knowledgeable and understanding with the many questions we had along the way. We are so excited to have such a new love in our life! Ok, Pax is stating that he'd like to go practice some more of that 'potty training' stuff!

She is happy healthy and the sweetest best addition we could ever ask for and she lobes everyone and everything she meets! we love and highly recommend premier pups to being a lovable furbaby into your family!
This is Myla. We got her at the end of July and she was the perfect dog for us. Premier pups did a wonderful job with her. They got her all up on shots, took care of her and made sure she was healthy to come home. Myla is the best dog we have ever owned thanks to premier pups. They were kind enough to send us pictures of her, facetime us, and they met us halfway to give her to us. I could tell they truly care for each of the pups they breed and give them unconditional love. I HIGHLY recommend premier pups for your choice of a breeder. Thank you premier pups for giving us the best dog ever!
Already in love with Ellie ?? and she’s only been a part of our family for 16 days! Ellie learns very quickly and can sit; lie down, shake and come when called. Plus she’s an avid Ohio State fan! Premier Pups has been very supportive and cares about their puppies.
We have had our pup Livi (former name Phoenix) for almost 2 months now. We are very pleased with our experience with Premier Pups. Every detail of what to expect with our pup was clearly communicated through videos, emails, and phone calls. Livi was healthy and it took her about 2 weeks to eat on her own and adjust to our home. We have crate trained her and she enjoys being in it. Our family is blessed to have her and thankful for our experience. Thank you Premier! ??
I have been wanting a puppy for quite a while, having been a cat owner all my life. My neighbor recommended Premier Pups. I am so happy to have found them. First they have great follow up and called every week for three weeks to check in to see how Daisy was doing, how I was doing and if I had any questions. Now to Daisy! She is the sweetest little knucklehead with whom I I am so lucky to share my life! Every day she makes me laugh and it so difficult not to spoil her. She is not a destructive puppy although she has gotten her mouth on paper from time to time and brings new meaning to the term scissor teeth! If you are on the fence, jump off, these puppies will add so much to your life!
Purchased two Mini Golden's in the last year and we are in love. Excellent process and great quality pups!
Murph is the light of my life. Premier Pups was so thorough in regards to his flight information and made sure I was kept up to date with his travel information. Murph has the most amazing temperament and is so very smart. He arrived completely healthy and has remained healthy since. He is 10 months now and the doctors say he is right on schedule in terms of growth, just 27lbs. Premier Pups answered all of my questions and I felt prepared to get my puppy. THANK YOU SO MUCH, I really do not know what I'd do without him.
Oakley is almost six months old now! He has grown like a weed and is healthy and active. He's still exhausting our older puppy Cooper. He just got his first hair cut a few weeks ago. He's a joy to have and I'm so glad we went through premier pups back in may. ????
Premier Pups is definitely a 5 STAR! Finding Scarlett (now renamed Millie), was such a smooth process. The information, help and assistance they provide is unremarkable. The pickup from the airport was a breeze and the follow-up they still provide on day 7 is just AMAZING! THANK YOU Premier Pups with the exceptional service you provide on all levels. My family and I are so in love with her!!
