What is the best puppy for my family?

Generally speaking, any puppy is ok with your family. Of course with smaller children, one has to take special attention in teaching your children to handle a puppy with care. Small breeds that are only a few months old are fragile and should be treated gently, not overly played with, and allowed to rest often for the first 20 weeks of life. If anyone in the family is allergic to pet dander, a hypo-allergenic dog should be considered. Please ask your puppy ambassador for help in picking your perfect furbaby family member.

Feed feed feed! Make sure to feed your puppy following the precise instructions that are in your welcome packet. The trip is a stressful one for your puppy so make sure to feed and allow your puppy to rest for the rest of the day in his kennel. We understand that it is exciting to receive your new puppy, but it is vital for the puppy to eat and rest in the kennel partially covered by a warm towel or blanket. Remember your puppy must be fed every 2-3 hours even through the night for the first two weeks.

What is a teacup puppy? What makes for a teacup puppy?

There is no such thing as a “teacup” or “micro” puppy. The term “teacup or “micro” is a marketing term and used to describe a smaller possible runt of the litter puppy. These puppies are generally unhealthy and have more health risks. If you are purchasing a toy breed, you will have a small toy breed puppy. Beware of anyone that states they have teacup puppies especially those from overseas. We have heard numerous complaints of folks being deceived into thinking they were purchasing a teacup puppy and paying thousands of dollars for a standard size puppy.

I’ve noticed that my puppy has a cold, nasal discharge, has sneezed, or has a hack should I be concerned?

Yes, you should be concerned and should act immediately! The faster you go the vet, the quicker you can prevent any complications. Remember your puppy is only weeks old, does not have a fully developed immune system, has just been recently vaccinated, and has had lots of stress with traveling and being introduced to your family. If you ignore the cold, there is a high probability of the puppy developing pneumonia within just a few days. Don’t delay and nip that cold in the bud by visiting the vet as soon as possible.

I’m concerned with the health of my puppy – Who do I call for immediate help?

For day or night health concerns, please call our 24-hour hotline at 619-265-6287

Do you have vet recommendations?

Because we are a nationwide company with customers all over the US, we cannot recommend one particular veterinarian practice. What we can advise is to stay away from larger vet practices such as Banfield, VCA and other similar types of revenue driven corporations. Although they may have good doctors, it is our opinion that their pricing is considerably higher and unnecessary tests and such may be offered for a more expensive visit. Finding a smaller practice is usually the best bet.

Are all your puppies on site?

Yes, they sure are. We do not “broker” puppies as some other online competitors do. We physically vet check and health certify every puppy to ensure you’re getting the absolute best and healthiest puppy possible.

How often do you have new puppies available?

We are very organized and although new puppies are available every day from our breeders we usually post new puppies every Tuesday or Wednesday. These schedules allow us time to have our puppies vet checked and enter every detail about the puppies into our system so you can make an informed decision on the right puppy for you and your family.

If my billing address is different from my shipping address what is required?

You will need to fill out a credit card authorization form that you may email or fax back to us.

Can you tell me more about vaccines?

Your puppy is up to date on vaccines, and we ask that you do not give any more vaccines until a minimum of at least 14 days from the last vaccination given. The vaccine record will show all the shots and deworming treatments your puppy has had. Please have a copy of that medical record ready to present to your veterinarian on your first required vet visit.

My puppy does not want to eat? What do I do?

Please look inside the envelope attached to your puppy’s kennel for all feeding instructions. It is imperative that you feed right away. If your puppy does not want to eat, you must treat them like a baby and force feed them with the included syringes and wet puppy food. Remember your puppy is a baby and left to itself sometimes will not eat. You must provide round the clock feeding every 2-3 hours (even at night) for the next two weeks. Don’t worry it’s not forever just while your puppy outgrows that 2-4 week infantile stage. You got this!

What is a designer puppy?

A designer cross puppy is an intentionally bred puppy of two distinct breeds. For example one of our top selling puppies is a Morkie. The Morkie is a designer cross that is a purebred Yorkshire Terrier “Yorkie” with a purebred Maltese. This combination of puppy makes for a cute, button nose, beady-eyed, doll face, fluffy puppy that no one can resist. Also, both of these breeds are hypoallergenic making the Morkie a beautiful well-tempered puppy that everyone loves. Other designer puppies are on our puppies for sale page.
