Our Family Adopted Lulu (previously autumn) from premier pups June 2020 and she has brought us so much love and happiness! 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!
I knew I wanted a Mini Goldendoodle and I wanted one now. Premier Pups was perfect because I didn’t have to be put on a long waitlist!! We contacted them on a Sunday and picked up Winnifred on a Friday!! I’ve never owned my own dog, and Premier Pups was very informative and helped me know how to care for her the first days. They called and checked in after we got home too. Winnifred is my whole world and I’m so thankful I found her.
We found our pup mazzi on the premier pups website, we fell in love with her!! Premier pups made the process very easy for us to adopt her, they also provide everything you need for your puppy for the first week or two.
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! ??
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.
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!!
I highly recommend getting a puppy from here! Rosie is so cute and sweet! Picking up our puppy was very easy And quick!!
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 :)
Stella has been such a great addition to our family! We had a great experience with premier pups! She is smart, loving and adorable at 6 months old!!
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!
