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.
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! ??
We got Zoe (formerly Michelle) a week ago when we picked her up at the airport. She has been adapting very well and has been spoiled since then! Premierpups did an excellent job, we are very pleased with the follow up and all the information provided. As of today, We have been camping for three days and so many people are stoping us in the street to ask question about Zoe, we have been referring premierpups to them.
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 bought our sweet Evie, our quarantine pup, April 2020 and we could not be any happier. Since we were in a pandemic, we were not able to met her before we picked her up or even go as a family to meet her. However, the way Premier Pups described her online was exactly how she is. I drove over three hours to pick her up, their instructions were well laid out and when we did have questions about eating schedules, they were extremely quick to answer. Evie is sweet, non-shedding, a great family dog and loves to cuddle with our kids. She has been the perfect fit to our family especially in a time where we all needed more love and cheer! Evie is a petite golden doodle and is currently at 18.5 lbs and is not expected to get much bigger. The perfect size for a petite.
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!
We adopted Tito last April. It was scary purchasing a pup, without meeting him first. Premier was so kind, answering all our questions. We took him to our vet the next day and they found him very healthy. Tito has made us laugh each day and this week, we celebrated his first birthday! I would adopt again from Premier and have recommended them to our friends.
We were skeptical about purchasing our new puppy online but we are so happy that we decided to go with Premier Pups! Rome (Previously Hayden) has been a very healthy and active pup and our vet said he looked great! They made the process very easy and have guided us the whole way and even after we received our new puppy. Would definitely recommend!
We searched for a mini Goldendoodle for over a year and could never find one in a shelter. I was scared to buy a dog online, never seeing it or where it came from. But I kept coming back to Premier’s website every day. I fell in love with this girl who was named Scarlett, renamed Talia. We picked her up at 9 weeks, weighing 3 lbs 8 oz. She is 5 months now, weighing 9 lbs, and is the absolute joy of our home. She is so loving, playful and easy to train. We bell trained her and she is for the most part potty trained....except when someone comes to the house and she is so excited to see them she just can’t contain it!! She has learned to sit, stay, paw and we are working now on lay down. We have never had a dog before so we were so anxious, but Premier made it easy for us. Talia is a healthy and growing mini who we are simply swooned over.
We had lost our Rat Terrier of 13 years in 2019. We swore never again. (never say NEVER!) Jax became available the day after Valentines Day. I scheduled a surprise "Drive By" and picked 3 pups to look at. We live about 30 min. away! We never got to the second or third pup. Jax stole my wife's heart, tears started flowing and the credit card came out! I realize now I never really truly loved our past dogs. Jax is that kind of dog that steals your heart runs around the room daring you to catch him and when you get it back it's way better than we when he stole it! Premier Pups was amazing before during and after the sale. There followup process is second to none! The Med. package and support is perfect. Having dogs through out my 62 years I can easily say Premier Pups is by far the best way to go and highly recommend!
