We love our little James! We have never had an inside dog before so wasn't sure what was ahead. James is wonderful! He is doing fantastic potty training and has a great playful loving personality.
Sadie is a fun, loving dog that enjoys her toilet paper and paper towels... a lot. She has the biggest personality and LOVES every person she meets. With dogs she’s a little baby but she warms up to them eventually. Sadie loves playing and going on walks but when she’s not up for it she’ll be sure to let you know. If Sadie hasn’t seen you in a while she sing, literally. Occasionally she will pee but it’s happy pee. We love her with all our heart and she has brought so much love and happiness to our family. If anyone got their mini golden doodle last April in the litter with Sansa, Sunday, Sloane and Skylar please contact us!! We would love to see how Sadie’s (Sloane) siblings are :)
I highly recommend getting a puppy from here! Rosie is so cute and sweet! Picking up our puppy was very easy And quick!!
Our experience with purchasing our dog was fantastic! We inquired initially by phone after a friend recommended the Premier Pups website to us. We went to see the puppy - he was just 6 lbs but we loved him immediately! He has been a joy for our family. We bid on him on-site and was able to take him home with us that day. We have two grown sons who love playing with Murphy and teaching him new tricks. He was such a good puppy, smart, learned quickly, and loves each of us unconditionally. He is now one year old and we still enjoy him everyday.
Kash (formally Baron), is a beautiful mini golden-doodle puppy that has been home with us for 1 week. He is the most lovable, playful and happy puppy. Adopting him through premier pups was seamless from the start, the entire team of staff are extremely tentative and helpful. I would recommend premier pups to anyone looking to adopt a puppy!!! We love Kash and cannot imagine life without him.
We picked up our Romeo yesterday and had an amazing experience. Our puppy is perfect, so personable, and so good. Thank you so much premier pup for our new family member !
We purchased 'Bentley' now known as Duke. He is very sweet and has been a great puppy so far. As far as the puppy we are happy. I was very hesitant with the process at first and was hoping to have a great experience as it was different than going to a breeder directly. I do not feel the experience I received is what they promote on their website. I did not feel reassured throughout and actually was met with frustration from the manager when I asked questions. I am not sure I would go through Premiere Pups again. I was hoping for more of a personal experience as they promote on the site.
We brought Willow “ previously Hazel” home 12/31/2020 We couldn’t have chosen a better breeder. They were so kind and informative from the first phone call, answered all our questions. Once we brought Willow home we received phone calls to check on her and to make sure she was eating and drinking. They truly care about they’re pups!! We are considering a brother for Willow : )
Hello from Charleston South Carolina. Just a short note to share our wonderful experience with PremierPups and Emma's new journey going forward. She is a sweetie! We just visited the Pup Doctor on our second visit (healthy), the Dr. really thinks she is special also. She is bringing a lot of happiness and joy to our family this holiday season! Dana
Couldn't have had a better experience with Premier Pups. From our initial phone call after finding The web site to 3rd follow-up phone call during his first week with us, we have been very pleased with our experience in finding, acquiring and caring for our pup during his first week with us. Very professional and very caring.
