This is Cody (formerly named Armani), a Mini Goldendoodle, whom we adopted on November 7, 2020. He has been an absolute joy. He's very sociable, energetic, confident, and loves everybody--dog and human alike--that he meets. He has been perfectly healthy, with absolutely no issues at all. He's robust and growing--5 pounds when we adopted him, 14 pounds now (01/26/21). Everyone who sees him remarks on how incredibly cute he is. He also seems to be quite clever, solving puzzles and learning new commands very fast, not that he always follows those commands yet, of course! We're happy dog owners and very pleased with our decision to get a puppy (our first ever) from PremierPups.
August joined our family 6 months ago and we couldn’t be more happy with our decision to add a fur baby to our family. He is the BEST dog! Premier pups was fantastic! This was our first experience purchasing a dog online. Premier was extremely supportive and helpful. August took a while to adjust after the flight, didn’t want to eat very much, but after that initial adjustment he’s done great. August is an F1B and at almost 8 months old weighs about 18 pounds. We haven’t noticed 1 single dog hair on the floor. My son has many animal allergies but hasn’t had an issues with him.
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.
Lucy is our Mini Goldendoodle, she was 5lbs at 8 weeks and is now 17lbs. She is 7 months old and has a personality of her own! She is very smart and stubborn, when we talk to her she likes to talk back. She has been very easy to train and learns new skills very quickly. She is fully house trained, it took about 4 months for her to get it down. She has little burst of energy throughout the day, however the majority of the day she is sleeping or calmly entertaining herself. Lucy is very friendly with people of all ages, other dogs, and cats. Sometimes we will catch her talking to the deer in the back yard, she is truly fearless. We 100% recommend getting a Mini Goldendoodle, and premier pups made the process very easy.
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.
Hercules (preciously Atari) has been such a blessing to our family. He is very loving and keeps us on our toes. He loves attending baseball games and playing with all his brothers friends. We loved how easy Premiere Pups made everything in choosing our dream pup!
I highly recommend getting a puppy from here! Rosie is so cute and sweet! Picking up our puppy was very easy And quick!!
I could not have loved my experience with PP any better! They walked me through the entire experience, regular calls, and also follow-ups after Bentley came home to me. Bentley arrived at our home on Sept. 13 and was born on July 10. He is full of energy and very intelligent. He quickly became our entire life and our son as well as a grandson. Highly recommend a Mini Goldendoodle and PP as a way to get to your next bundle of joy! If your pup is from this litter, would love to hear from you as well! :)
We got LouLou at the beginning of May and have loved her since the minute we got her! She is the biggest bundle of joy and brings us all so much happiness. Premier Pups was so wonderful through the entire process, and they answered all of the (many) questions we had! We couldn’t be happier!
