I want all potential buyers out there to NEVER buy a puppy from Leroy Mast in Apple Creek, Ohio! During our conversations in email Leroy told me they weren't breeders and the puppy was an inside dog and was great with other dogs! That was my biggest concern because I have 2 other dogs and wanted to make sure the puppy would be fine with them. Definitely not the case! I have emailed and called Leroy and still haven't had a response! This all has happened in the past 48hrs. This seller is a fraud and should be shut down because these puppies are not taken care of whatsoever! I hope Puppyfind blocks and shuts down this seller! The amount of cruelty this seller puts these puppies through is inexcusable! Again don't buy from Leroy Mast from Apple Creek, Ohio! I have all email proof that every word they said was a lie!

I've been searching and searching for another Pekapoo for months. I lost my first Pekapoo after 17 years. I wasn't sure if I even wanted another puppy or dog because the heartache was so overwhelming. Then a few people said ”there’s another dog out there looking for love”. I tried shelters and rescues but I never got ”That feeling” so thanks to PUPPYFIND.COM I started looking at peekapoos again.
Only a couple of people got back to me. Until, Shelly had her peeks on site. I fell in love with a special little boy named ”Dasher” and took another shot. She got back to me and since I live in Las Vegas, the prices were so outrageous that I could never afford another. Turns out she is actually coming to Vegas for the Rodeo and I'm meeting her at the airport with my 8 week old peek-a-boo. If it wasn't for your site sending me pictures of peekapoos when they came in, I would never have received pics or where else to start. So thank you PUPPYFIND.COM for helping me find my new baby!!

I have bought 2 dogs off Puppyfind.com. The first one almost 15 years ago was a chinese crested. Got exactly what I paid for. I did the purchase over the telephone. I also bought a fully trained police dog over the telephone. Both dogs were shipped and exactly as advertised. I would use this service again. First dog was a 3000 dollar show dog. 2nd dog was a 6000 trained import police dog. So, I spent a lot of money and I am still happy with my purchase. Got all papers on both dogs, got 2 healthy dogs and one was perfectly trained.

I was looking at a corgi named Layla and happened to get a call back from Kameron with Puppy find. I explained my previous Corgi had been diagnosed with DM. A degenerative disease causing her to lose use of her hind legs. I wanted to see if the breeder would do this test before I purchased her. First the breeder agreed then he said no then kameron said if I put a deposit down then after the test came in if she was positive I could get my deposit back. I asked kameron how I would verify the test results were done he then said there would be no test. So he lied to me again. I was upset and he didn't care I was going to report this injustice. I caution anyone dealing with kameron of puppyfind to rethink your purchase. I am going directly through a reputable breeder now. Thank you.

When deciding to add on to our family I checked out several puppy sites, but was worried about how safe they were. Puppyfind.com was well put together so you could look at the breed you were interested in or if you wanted a certain location to look in. With them you did not have to go back and forth to different websites that some I found did. It was easy to contact the people that had the puppy through Puppyfind. They were very professional, kind and answered all questions. Now thanks to Puppyfind we have a new baby girl and are having so much fun and she has helped heal the hole in my heart after losing my big girl. THANK YOU PUPPYFIND.

I lost my pug who was my best friend, I was devastated looking everywhere for a pug puppy. I came across a listing in my city and said why not. If I find a pup there would be no transport problems, I have read horror stories about transportation problems so that was out of the question. I contacted a few sellers. Left my number. 3 out of 4 never called back but the one that did was awesome. She explained everything. Asked me plenty of question, I asked her plenty of questions and she was so nice, she went slow so I could write everything down. I am a senior and disabled and was really scared of getting a new fur kid. Could I handle it? She explained that the pups she showed me were extremely hyper but she had one from a different litter that was less excited and I fell in love. That's the one for me. I just knew that was the one.

Was looking for a Puppy for the wife and family. Puppyfind.com was one of the website that Google led me to when I searched for "Puppies for Sale Florida" so it looked all legitimate. We reached out to some people on the website for information on their puppies. Within a day or two I had some email conversations going on. One in particular sent me a lengthy email that had a lot of specific information in it, including price of the deposit, where the puppies were located (Branford, Florida), and the specific process. And at the bottom of the email it said "I’m sorry for the quick information, I am driving" - I found it funny that such a detailed email would have an apology like that. I emailed this particular person back and forth and they didn’t provide any additional pictures of the puppy other than what was on the website. They did push quite hard about the Nonrefundable Deposit of $500.00.
This person was one of three people we were conversing with back and forth. We asked "May we arrange to meet the puppy prior to putting a deposit down?" and it was going to be a two and a half hour drive one way. No response since that email. Once I emailed them again I got my emails returned to me as "deliverable" and the phone number they gave me wasn’t in service. And just to see, we googled the address, which turned out to be a grocery store. Clearly we dodged a bullet. It is obvious that puppyfind.com does not verify anything on their website.
IF you plan on using this website, do everything in your power to verify that the person you are dealing with is legitimate. There are a lot of scammers out there, and I am sure there are scammers on this particular website. Thankfully we did NOT get scammed, and we are currently working with a breeder that we have spoken to in person and met with to verify that they are doing the right thing - for the record, the person we are working with we found through Facebook. DO YOUR RESEARCH ESPECIALLY WITH THIS WEBSITE.

I SELL PUPPIES AND I HAD MY INFO SCAMMED 4 TIMES IN JUST 3 WEEKS. PuppyFind cannot help you from being scammed. Somebody got my info and erased all my puppies I had and put "Frenchies for sale. $1,000.00 including shipping." They kept my phone number and name. The only thing I can think of was they said that they had a partner. So if you sent a check they would have you make it out to them, instead of the person on PuppyFind. Be careful. I pay for an upgrade, but PuppyFind did not offer to even give me a discount or help me relist my puppies. I have been using PuppyFind for over 10 years. I will be canceling, there is a lot of other sites and they don't even charge.

Our Maltese just passed away after 15 glorious years. And our home just didn't seem the same, hesitant to get another dog because of all the pain when losing them. Then we had a change of heart and decided to get another best friend. Needless to say we decided to go with a yorkie, so we searched and lo and behold I found a greater 3 miles away!!! We set up an meeting to meet the girl yorkie we seen listed. Once arrived it was like a match made in heaven. Not only were the breeder was nice and friendly we found our new addition.
But that's not all... I love the puppies so much I was really wanting 2 of them. Not knowing the breeder had a male that wasn't listed he mentioned he had one more but was on the listing. I told him I was interested and wanted both. He gladly sold me her brother!!!! So now I have 2 of the cutest brother and sister yorkies. They are perfect loving and playful dogs. This was the most perfect and easiest to find another dog. It was meant to be. Thanks to Puppyfind. I would suggest this site 100% to anyone looking for a special friend.

I purchased a puppy from a breeder 2/2019. I had to struggle to get info from them and complained to Puppyfind. They said write a review. I pointed out the breeder did not have current listing (so writing a review would not be possible). They said “you can take legal action”. Right! Legal action is not cheap or easy when you don’t have $$$. After I received the “Norwich” pup I had concerns about the purity of her breed. The breeder said he had 3 females and 1 male. At the suggestion of a pet “worker” I got a DNA test kit. The results came back 42+% Cairn, 35% Norwich, the remainder was Schnauzer & Westie. I sent the breeder the results via delivery proofed mail in 2 ways giving them 10 days to give a satisfactory resolution. This breeder is now using the name of York Avenue Breeders. He replied 11 days later via email giving many claims why the DNA and I were wrong but never offering to take the pup back. I filed a dispute with PayPal. I supplied them with DNA results, the listing and all correspondence. They gave the guy 10 days to reply back but then said they did not get what they needed. They refunded my money.
This AM my review has apparently deleted. (It was on the site but Puppyfind never contacted me to ask me about it.) Puppyfind bends over backwards for breeders because they have to pay to list but buyers don’t have to pay. This breeder is using 1 stud for 3 females. If his stud in not purebred Norwich none of his dogs are purebred. Puppyfind said in their response to another reviewer that the breeders can’t remove negative reviews but I guess Puppyfind does it for them.

Do not Trust These Breeders! Maryetta & Chris **!!! They are selling Siberian Huskies & German Shepard!!!! I recently bought a husky puppy March 16 from Maryetta ** & Chris ** using the Puppyfind.com website. Once I brought the puppy home there have been a lot of health issues with the husky puppy, she ate so much as if she wouldn't get another meal. I have taken her to my vet and the ER. She is very ill, very small and underweight for her age. She has Giardia, anemia and is having nonstop seizures.
I have contacted the breeder but they claim the puppy was healthy the whole time prior to being bought. Many tests were taken within 4 days of having her, and the bill has reached $1,200 for everything. Breeder is willing to take back puppy but does not want to take her medicine that she needs saying that we should keep it because it's our money and I'm worried he or she will not give her the help she needs. Instead I can only assume he will end her life since nonstop vet expenses wouldn't end if I returned her to them. And my puppy has to continue testing and is prescribed another antibiotic that should help with distemper, toxins etc.
Obviously she wasn't given any vaccines since she has parasites. And we have no clue why she has seizures. And her condition is very rare for her age. She shouldn't be suffering this much. Chris has stopped responding to me and will not send vet records from when they owned her. I have contacted a Representative at Raven's Husky Haven and Rescue center and they have informed me that this breeder has many complaints against them and that they are a puppy mill. It's easy for breeders to fake papers! Please I would like to warn people that they do not have the best interest in their customers or their puppies. My poor puppy was not taken care of as stated on their page. I was mislead and I have vet records of everything that has happened with my Siberian husky. Going to report them to AKC and Animal Control.
We hope your puppy gets well soon.

Two years ago we purchased a Maltipoo puppy from the New York breeder and she drove halfway and met us. We paid for the puppy in person $950. The puppy came with a health record and health guarantee. Everything was a success. We went back on Puppyfind a month ago to choose our second Maltipoo puppy because it's a great breed, this one came from a different breeder because we wanted a specific color chocolate.
We paid $1,200 for the puppy and the breeder had the puppy delivered here to Massachusetts where we live and we paid for the puppy when we received it. All worked out great. No problems. I did run into a scammer on Puppyfind but I knew right away that it was a scammer because they asked me to Western Union money. Real dog breeders do not get paid through Western Union or MoneyGram. They either get paid in person, cash, check, PayPal, or credit card. Do not send money through MoneyGram or Western Union and you will not have any scammer problems.

I had never heard of Puppyfind until about 2 months ago. Now I don't know how I could search for a puppy without looking to Puppyfind first. In Northeast AL I felt a lil limited to breeds that I was able to find. I had several in mind. Goldendoodle, labradoodle for sure which are easier to find. But the Biewer Terriers, Party Yorkies, Cockapoos not so much. I looked all over the south & esp for Old English Sheepdogs & Sheepadoodles. I found a few breeders here & there but they were a tad out of my price range or long wait to get a puppy. Even glanced thru Craigslist but couldn't find what I really wanted.
I come across Puppyfind & a couple others. Puppyfind was the one I kept coming back to. So many breeds! So many options & wide range of prices. It was overwhelming to say the least. However as much as I wanted several dif breeds I couldn't walk away from the old English sheepdog I had searched far & wide for. I found 12 pages of listings. I finally found a 7 wk old boy from Cindy Lawrence. I messaged her on a Saturday & she got right back in touch. She held the pup for me until Mon. when I could send deposit. He was 7 wks old so I had to wait to have him flown from Illinois to me in Alabama. We spoke almost daily. I had never sent so much money over the internet not seeing the pup in person & having it shipped on top of that. She made things so easy, so nice, answered all questions, sent pics of my boy & parents, etc. Even spent plenty of days with easy going conversation like id known her forever. I couldn't have been more comfortable.
Today is Fri Mar 15, 2019 7 days after we first spoke & I picked up my OES today at the airport! 8 wks old exactly. He is so clean, all paperwork was with him & then some. First shots, etc. I'll be taking him to the vet for his next round of shots. But so far so GREAT! He's perfect! Plus there's a health guarantee. I'll be keeping in touch with his breeder. I can't believe how easy this has been & how comfortable Cindy made this experience and shipping was $300. Cheaper than I thought. I know this is long. I know there's still scams all over. Trust your gut feelings! Ask questions, talk on phone, & watch out for multi breed listings, fine print & have fun! I'll definitely be looking to Puppyfind for my future pets first to see what they have to offer. It's a great option to say the least. Thanks. Stacey

This is by far the best way to find and purchase a puppy/dog. You can search by the breed you are looking for and the state so you can look close to you or further for more choices. That being said people you do have to use COMMON SENSE, ask a lot of questions, how the animal was raised, look at the seller's listings to see how many puppies they have up for sale and have sold. Ask for the dogs medical history, especially if an adult dog, ask if the dog has behavior issues and see the dog in person before you finish payment. Sadly there are some unscrupulous people out there. But for us, looking for a puppy it's the best bulletin board of listings that give you lots of choices, you just then need to do your homework and make sure it's not a puppy mill where they sell 100s of puppies.

I bought a Portuguese Waterdog from a one time breeder in 8-18. I really should have done my research better. It could of saved my family a whole lot of pain. I thought because my breeder was on the AKC marketplace and was not having any more liters she’s definitely not a puppy mill so it was safe. She was great to work with, super nice but now that I look back I should have found a more experienced breeder. We had a fabulous 2 1/2 months with our gorgeous fun loving girl before she became suddenly sick. She was diagnosed with multiple liver shunts which is a genetic disease. Hers were so bad that surgery was not a good option. Her chances were slim. I had to make a horrible decision but it was the only one. My vet said this often occurs when dogs are inbred.
I looked at my AKC paperwork - her father was also her great grandfather. Also I contacted the breeder because the entire liter is at risk and all the dogs need to be checked for this. I did not have any pet guarantee - my mistake for sure! I am in the process of purchasing another PWD thru Puppyfind. However with a legitimate breeder. I also found out that a true breeder can show you the genealogy that they are not inbred and will also health test on both the sire and dam. The new breeder is providing me with a 2 year pet guarantee. There are good breeders on Puppyfind but don’t fall in love with one and think all is fine without research!

I originally sent an e-mail to the website to find out if they only support private breeder. I made them aware of my experience, as well as informing them that based on my research it looks like my puppy came from a puppy mill. They informed me that without a police report/investigation I cannot make these statements.
I went on the sellers listing two weeks after I adopted my puppy and couldn't believe that they had the same puppy, same pictures and name posted for sale except that they changed the date of birth. So I wrote a negative review about the seller for "Buyers Beware." In my review I wrote that these are not a private breeder but rather a pet store in NY. I also put in my review that both the puppy I adopted and the puppy my mom adopted were still up for sale except with changes in date of birth.
Puppyfind.com took down my review. They did not contact me for supportive evidence which I have not only the paperwork , bill of sale, place of birth but I also have the pictures on my phone from the original posting. I went to check today both my review and the listing is down. But the seller still has other dogs posted as well as the one my mom "supposedly adopted". This is not transparency to the public. If puppyfind.com states that they are just a bulletin site for breeders they should take the time to look into complaints and negative reviews especially when they stated they only support private breeders. I am so disappointed, we used the site 3 times prior in my family to and never had this experience but I will never use this site again!!! Shame on them.

PuppyFind is PRO PuppyMill - I purchased a puppy from a breeder on Puppyfind. When I went to the home it was a horrible situation. I contacted Puppyfind and wrote a negative review. They asked for proof and I sent pictures, emails between me and the breeder, and vet information to show the breeder misrepresented the buyer. However, Puppyfind continued to support the breeder and nothing I sent would be accepted. So BEWARE of this website. They have no integrity and do not care that animals are mistreated.

The site is easy to navigate even for a digital novice like me. Listing a puppy for sale took only minutes including uploading pictures and comments. There is an additional fee for the public viewing of your listings but it is very reasonable and worthwhile. The site is monitored and they communicate through email in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend Puppyfind.com to anyone who has a puppy for sale just as it was recommended to us. We received many inquiries about our puppies and all of them were from people who were seriously interested in more information about our dog family. All of our puppies have new loving and caring families to give their love to. We could not be more pleased with the entire experience.

Quite possibly the WORST website you could possibly use to purchase a puppy. I tried writing reviews warning perspective customers of a fraudulent breeder who is only in it for the money. Sends out FORGED vet paperwork to customers and then lies about it, overbreeds her mamas and sends home sick puppies. When I provided proof of my review, Puppyfind.com sided with the disgusting breeder. Puppyfind.com should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to happen on their site. The breeder I reviewed has since gone through a name and location change, and is at it again! When I left another review, warning others of this, my review was removed without any mention to me.

I had searched for a small breed puppy for a while and in doing my due diligence, found more than one seller that was directly brokering for puppy mills. I contacted Puppyfind and long story short, they appear to have no interest whatsoever in checking on their advertisers. The one I had questioned them about had had numerous complaints against him, and yet, they refuse to ban him unless he is actually convicted. Puppyfind is in litigation now for various reasons. BUYER BEWARE! Do NOT purchase a puppy from anyone where you can not see at least one of the parents. Anyone selling multiple breeds is probably brokering for puppy mills.

I purchased a puppy through PuppyFind from a lady named Laura **. I purchased a toy Yorkie on a Friday and the dog passed on Saturday. I contacted the lady and told her the symptoms the dog was having because they didn't sound good so I asked, “Should I carry it to the vet.” She said no and assured me the dog was fine that was Saturday morning at 10am dog was dead hours later. Laura will not give my money or replace the dog. She had blocked me from calling and texting her. I put up a review about what happened. She had PuppyFind remove it. Of course they did saying I need vet reports. Hell the dog died.
I purchased the dog for my 4yr old B-Day. She been wanting a puppy for a year so I saved and spent a $1000 on a dog which I'm out of. I told my baby the puppy was sad and missed his family. I didn't have the guts to tell her it passed. Now I have a depressed 4yr old who says she misses him so much. He was the best but she just don't want him to be sad. You know how heartbreaking it is to watch your child be depressed and crying over the only gift she wanted. She chose the puppy over Disney World and the beach. Laura is not the definition of a true breeder because she should have made this right. I texted her with dog symptoms.
Three different vets said the symptoms were not that of low blood sugar like Laura once say. The vets said they would have bet all money it was parvo. The puppy had eating and plus I had given him the glucose meds. The dog wouldn't stand, eat, or drink. It was having bowel movements in his sleep and I told her all this and she assured me he was fine not to carry him to the vet. It breaks my heart that she would do this to a 4yr old. Puppy Find people need to know how unethical and what type of person they are dealing with. She should not be able to remove my review because she don't like it. She needs to make it right. I'm in the process of caring Laura ** of Mt Brook Al to court.

My chihuahuas recently had a litter of babies. 6 little girls. We were overwhelmed with the idea that we would have to part with them, but we knew we couldn’t handle 8 dogs in one house. I looked to do local ads like Craigslist but I didn’t want to have to deal with random phone calls from people that may not be truly invested in the search for their new “family member”. That’s where Puppyfind.com came in. I set up a profile for free and was able to compare prices that others were asking for. One of the big differences with this service is that you are required to pay to get details of the seller. This just makes sense.
When I was contacted by a couple of people, I could tell they were truly interested and for the right reasons. They had some “skin in the game". I decided to pay for their premium service. Best move by far. Within three weeks, we were able to rehome 4 of the 6 puppies. We couldn’t bear to let them all go. I spoke with all 4 families prior to meeting.

I had a very negative experience with a seller on Puppyfind.com and wrote a negative review. Puppyfind.com will take down the review at the request of the seller if you cannot prove it under their "unique" terms. So if you spoke on the phone with the seller and they blatantly lie to you about the facts about your product/puppy and you get the puppy and it is not as described. Guess what. Your review isn't valid because you can't provide proof the seller was dishonest. Did you record your conversation? Probably not. I get Puppyfind is just providing extra protection for wrongful accusations, but it is truly a broken system for honest buyers who were scammed in this way. Just because you can't prove it, didn't mean the trespass didn't happen. That's the sad truth. But that's just one aspect.
Let's get down to my exact situation. My complaint was that the seller lied about the puppy's current weight and provided proof via text message to Puppyfind. Puppyfind argues that the contract says weight can't be guaranteed, but failed to see that exact quote is weight can't be guaranteed when "fully grown." Even when this was pointed out, it was totally disregarded. I am buying a teacup puppy, so current weight is very important in order to predict adult weight. Seller has verbalized in person and over the phone, has implied via text and possibly outdated photos, and listed a dishonest current weight (which is also called a "charting weight"). I know this because when I got the puppy, I weighed her and she was way more than what the seller had told me.
Somehow, Puppyfind has mental-gymnastics its way to protect the seller by repeating that the contracts says no weight guaranteed. Again, it says "no weight guaranteed at fully grown." But here's the thing, the magic of it all is that ANYBODY can guarantee a current weight. You can step on a scale and it gives you a very specific number - not a range, not a question mark, not a number with fine print that says not guaranteed. My negative review was based on a lie of the current weight, which only helps to predict an adult weight. Obviously, a lower current weight means a lower adult weight. So seller advertised a lower current weight so she can sell a heavier puppy as a teacup for more money.
Also another complaint was delayed shipping. Seller (and proven via text message) told me puppy will ship in a couple of days or a little longer than a week. 3 weeks later, I chose to fly in to pick up the puppy myself because it was now going to take 4 weeks (maybe longer at that rate) and will cost me an additional $269 on top of the $450 shipping price. Puppyfind says I wasn't forced to fly. Um.. excuse me? But was I not forced to wait longer than promised and was I not asked to pay more money? Does that not warrant a negative review? What is with the mental-gymnastics over at Puppyfind.com? It is unfathomable. I'm at my wit's end so I'm here where there is no conflict in interest.
Funny part is that I am not asking for a refund. There are no refunds via this seller (even if she lied). I am merely leaving an honest review because it was a bad buying experience. She has my money, but just let me warn future customers that they could potentially be lied to and possibly delayed shipping, lying about birthdate (can't prove this one because listing has been deleted but if happened), etc. Why is that impossible on this website? Again, the 1 star review is for a broken review system. And also for the mental-gymnastics. Can't reason with the unreasonable. But I just had an epiphany while writing my distress call here. I believe I can get a statement from a 3rd party via records that seller had been lying all along about weight. Truth prevails. Wish me luck!
We appreciate your comments. Your recommendations will be taken into consideration for future site improvements. We do allow sellers to dispute reviews they feel are invalid, but if supporting documentation is provided the review may be reinstated. Most complaint sites don't verify information so you never know if it is valid. PuppyFind wants negative statements to be verified so consumers know it has been validated.

2 years ago we got a German Shepherd puppy from Susie. At the time they were 5 weeks old so we went and looked at the puppies available. We found one and placed our deposit. We also asked to see the parents who were on site and in the process saw several other dogs in their brewing family. All were in excellent condition and well loved. 3 weeks later we went and picked up our puppy. She provided us with treats, food and a blanket as well as wipes in case he got carried sick. Last week, we decided we wanted to add to our family and found they had a 5 month old female available, we called Susie and picked up our new puppy on Saturday. Both dogs are such amazing, smart dogs and were very well cared for before we picked them up.
Susie and her family also attend training courses and go to breeder conventions. They are AKC certified to sell puppies and truly care about the health of all their puppies. They keep pictures albums of all the pictures they received from their extended dog families and love getting updates of their puppies. I highly recommend Susie and her puppies. They will answer any and all questions you have for them and we will definitely go back to her a third time for a puppy. They also breed Golden Retrievers and Golden Doodles I believe.

I was able to find my PERFECT puppy only 3 hour drive from me instead of a 3 hour flight. I visited my new family member today and I am so excited, I can barely stand it! This is my picture bonding with my new girl. She is only 5 weeks old so I am not able to bring her home yet... but on March 4th I will get to bring her home with me. The breeder (Henderson Haven LLC) is fabulous and accommodating in letting me visit with her at this young age and to get to visit with her mom. They have instructed me on all the things I need to do to keep my new little girl safe when I take her home also. Thank you for your PuppyFind.com website... bringing people together with their new 4-legged family members!

I've spent days fighting to get my review reinstated, and it's nothing but delays. Seller sold us a Pom, claiming CKC registered. Picked puppy up, seller claimed she can't register the dog, that it would be in her name and she would contact CKC the next day. I didn't get a response the next day, then the seller ignored my text and calls. I had to spend hours researching this seller and the different sites she had been selling same dogs on to find in comments other names she had gone by. I called the sheriff's office but could not file charges without a name. I had videoed live on my cell when I met her, but messed up not getting her tag number. She signed my Vet Health papers with a different name that was on the site. After digging and texting the names, I came across a review that showed another name. For information purposes only, first name was always same, just 3 different last names.
After I text her the name I found on the old review she all of a sudden responded, and said she'd give my money back if I bought the dog back when she got back in a few days. That's nice that she would give me my money back after driving that far and had a Vet bill already paid since the dog had severe diarrhea and showed minor signs of dehydration. The Forest City police department made contact with her to verify her name, and to avoid possible fraud charges offered a refund.
PuppyFind was notified about all these, and I sent in screenshots of the sell, and her signed receipt for bill of health. They did make her take down the registered part, but allowed her to advertise as usual, and still approving my review. She has already sold another Pom, and guess what, as soon as it was gone she dropped the ad. So people are getting ripped off being told these are registered Poms. We had a friend inquire about one of the remaining Poms, she just claimed she left that out of the ad by mistake but it's a CKC Pom.
Major issue is fraud sellers, sell their dog, go and delete ad so people cant leave their feedback, 2nd issue is even when proven seller did wrong, it's a delayed process where they still are selling. I don't understand why PuppyFind doesn't take this serious and find better ways to handle. Once a purchase is proven that review should be put back immediately. Mine was on hold again since I made a remark about the dog's health issue that would be checked into. All I can say is buyer beware, sellers here can apparently learn their system enough to avoid negative feedback in full by deleting the ads before the buyer even gets home. Even with evidence it's so delayed, the seller has the chance to sell remaining puppies before other victims are aware of what's going on.
PuppyFind.com does allow sellers to dispute reviews that they feel are invalid due to the abuse of the review system, such as buyers/sellers posting fake reviews.

I purchased a Frenchton from Greatshire Kennels in Nov, 2016. Lucy did very well for almost the first year, then in late Aug 2017, 2 weeks before her 1st birthday she woke up in excruciating pain and could not walk. I rushed her to my vet, and he referred me to a Neurologist, where after doing an MRI and CT scan she was diagnosed with Hemivertebrae with scoliosis, Stenosis of the vertebral canal, deformation of the spinal cord and disk degeneration. I was informed by the Neurologist that all of these conditions could be hereditary. I contacted Lisa and let her know and asked her to please have the parents checked through her vet. She stated she would do this immediately and let me know, this was in early Sept. 2017. I tried emailing her several times, but no response.
Finally In Jan 2018 she contacted me only because she saw the review I left on Puppyfind. After another couple of weeks she finally sent me xrays of the parents but no report from the vet of the findings and I have asked for it numerous times. What good are xrays with no report from the vet? It horrifies me to think that the dogs she’s breeding may have one or all of these conditions and yet she continues to breed them. Any one of these conditions alone are horrible, imagine being an 11 month old puppy and having them all! My Lucy is permanently disabled, she wears a brace to support her spine and will be on steroids along with other meds the rest of her life.
I am sharing my experience because I want this stopped and I don’t want to see any more puppies or parents go thru the hell we have been and continue to go thru. My review has been removed from Puppyfind and below is the reply I received from them as to why. I have proven my puppy has possible hereditary conditions. My vet report says “consistent with congenital anomalies”. Shouldn’t it be up to the seller now to prove to them that her dogs do not? Unbelievable!!!
"Without documentation showing that the condition is hereditary and that the seller should take responsibility for the illness, we cannot post your review. If the seller ends up providing you with documents showing the condition was hereditary then you can send them in and we will reopen the case. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me."
It is awful that your pet is having medical issues. That can be extremely frustrating.

I've been advertising on Puppyfind for 5 years. My experience overall is pretty good. The only thing I cannot stand about Puppyfind... When someone post a review, there's no email sent stating that a review was posted. It's not like I check my reviews on the hour. Someone that DID NOT purchase a dog from me posted a review saying that I was a scammer... After about 2 or 3 days of not getting any emails from buyers, I checked my reviews and seen it. Puppyfind deleted it right away because I didn't even sell that person a dog. But it sat there for days without me knowing. I like the fact that if you did not purchase a dog from the breeder you are not allowed to post a review. I like the fact that when people do post reviews the review only gets to stay if everything they said is true and they have proof. Puppyfind should set up their system where an email goes out to the breeder if a review is left due to people leaving false or fake reviews.

I wasn't sure how well PuppyFind would work but I was very pleased when it did. I liked the ability to search for a particular breed and narrow the area geographically. Once narrowed, I could view age, sex, and price all at once, which is nice. The breeder that we finally located could not have been nicer and the puppy's parents were well-tempered with health checks. We are happy with our sweet (now) 11-week-old puppy. Thanks, PuppyFind!

When I first started to look for a Belgian Malinois I wasn't sure where to begin. There were several sites but I found PuppyFind to be the easiest to use. They talked about the breed and had a lot of puppies to look over. It took about 2 weeks but I found a site that showed newborn puppies. And that's where I found our little boy. The site is user friendly and they are very careful about the breeders that use the site. They even have dogs for adoptions. They have many breeds, even some of the rarer ones. I would definitely use this site if you want a purebred dog. There's a large price range on them and most of the breeders guarantee the health of the puppies. I haven't picked Rascal up yet but will soon and I can't wait.

We had a wonderful experience with PuppyFind.com. I have read that others have had problems which is really sad. Last month we had a Shih Tzu that we had bought locally in UT and the people sold her at 6 weeks. We only had her for a week and took her to the vet and then to 2 different hospitals (one was a specialty hospital). It turns out she had a birth defect so we had to put her down. We were so sad.
So this time we found our little Mia through PuppyFind and called Allen ** in GA. He had a litter of Mal-shi's that he had bred. He knew a lot about breeding and the need to have a healthy line all the way down. He owned both of Mia's parents, they are both papered. I didn't realize there were so many problems if the breeder doesn't know what he is doing. When I first talked to Allen the puppies were 4 weeks old. I sent him a money order for the deposit. He sent pics of our little Mia each week for 4 weeks till we got her. He started to acclimate her to the crate and going for rides in the car a while before he sent her. He explained about sending her on the airline. She arrived in perfect condition last Wednesday at the SLC airport. We are thrilled to have her.

Purchased Brando from panoplypoodles as a companion to my 2 year old poodle acquired there 2 years ago. Brando was described in writing by seller as "big, sweet... gentle giant... calm... laid-back... sold as a pet only... a perfect fit" for my 2YO poodle and me. Seller's son delivered him for a healthy fee. Brando had been acquired by seller in an exchange w/ a Montana breeder for her breeding program. Since he had "turned in eyelids" (a genetic trait) that required surgery, seller decided NOT to breed him. She stated in a phone conversation that "no one had been interested in buying him" so he was now actually 9 1/2 months old, not 8 as described. I trusted her judgment as I had had a great experience in the first purchase 2 years ago.
After the son and dog were 1 hour into the 5 hour trip, she phoned and mentioned that "he's not good on a leash... he MIGHT budge a little." She also informed me that he had "razor burn" from grooming and "spots where he and "Cash" [her current sire] played rough this morning." These "spots" turned out to be bite marks on his rump. The razor burn was a large area around his right eye that had been shaved far too closely for comfort! I later attributed the razor burn and bite marks to difficulty she had in last minute preparations of Brando for sale: first ever and yet a major grooming plus medications for fleas!
When Brando was delivered, he would not leave the son's car so the son had to physically remove him. Right! He would NOT even budge on a leash! It took both of us to get him into the house and crated, which I felt unable to do alone after the son left. After 3 hours of trying to calm the dog with gentle talk and scratching his head through the crate (I rightly presumed him to be upset after the relocation), I managed to get him out the door for a potty break I knew he needed (he would not go while the son was still here!). I had to move him by literally picking up one foot at a time and moving it forward! I had put a new collar with a lead on since the son took the lead that he used to transport Brando. It WAS a correction collar, but I had failed to connect the links properly so it fell apart shortly after I got Brando outside. He BOLTED!
He was never "corrected" or challenged by this collar! Up and down the streets he ran, eventually into the fenced backyard of a neighbor. There, when my neighbors and I were trying to get hold of him to put on another lead, he grazed one neighbor, snapped at another and succeeded in biting me! Since we could not get him to come and I had a badly injured and bloody hand, we called Animal Services who captured and took Brando.
The Officer tried without success every trick he knew to get him to come but finally had to use the catch pole. Brando tried to bite the Officer. While the Officer was processing the report, I heard over speakerphone the A.S. Supervisor tell the Officer that Alabama Law required the animal be euthanized... no exceptions! Next day, the Officer called and said the Houston County Health Dept Rabies Board would make a final decision. While the A.S. Officer was still with me, the seller returned my call and I informed her what had happened. The dog's papers went with the dog to A.S.
The seller wrote that she would be happy to refund my money, given the circumstances. I DID require medical care and am still recovering, following wound cleansing, tetanus shot, antibiotics shots on 2 occasions and oral antibiotics. To make a longer story short, I kept the seller informed of each step in the saga. I learned today that she was allowed by Houston Co. Health Dept to retrieve the dog earlier this week. However, she now is apparently intent on keeping the dog AND my money, claiming that this sweet, "innocent" dog was maltreated by me in 3 short, crated hours. Frankly, it seems in retrospect, that she seriously MISREPRESENTED and pushed off on me a dog that she had been unable to sell and who was completely unprepared for being sold. True, he may have been calm in HER setting, his comfort zone. Sorry this is long. It's just an overview.
Honestly, my first experience with a real panoplypoodle PUPPY (14 weeks) was fine, and she has other new standard puppies listed now on Puppyfind. Just be cautious about panoplypoodles. She has now apparently decided to dishonor her promised refund. I have received an email making weird accusations against me by distorting a small element of actuality into statements bearing no semblance of truth; moreover, she promises to "never allow" me to buy another one of her poodles! (Really!!! Like I would now want to???)
I presume she is feeling 1) a little greedy/needy about the money and 2) a little guilty about what she put this dog through by pretending he was ready to be snatched away with zero preparation from his attachment to HER and the security of his "home" at her kennel. I really wanted the dog she DESCRIBED. Instead, I got a terrified dog that went on the lam at the first possibility and went straight to aggression, his only known defense. I felt sorry for the poor dog but I also suffered a vicious bite and am very thankful it wasn't any worse! She has never once inquired about my healing or said "sorry." The bottom photo below is the one with his listing, the middle is the photo on his arrival, and the top is my bitten hand. Seller described the dog as between 70 and 80 lbs. A lot of dog to have been so unhappily UNprepared for being sold as a "perfect fit" pet!

In addition to this being the smoothest purchase I could have hoped for, I must say being a long standing dog owner, this young man who entered my home on June 30th has surely won the heart of every person he's encountered.

I lost my 14.5 liver spotted female Dalmatian named Rosie eight years ago breaking my heart from her devastating loss. She and I were partners in all things but she was so sick at the end, I had to let her go. I have never recovered from her departure but promised to find another baby Dal one day, hoping to find my Rosie again.
Each day, I checked the Puppy Find website, looking for a baby Dal, possible unwanted, but healthy and a female. I found one for 550, Mar 2016, at reasonable price plus additional shipping and handling with all shots. The pup's future owner didn't claim her so the breeder listed her for sale on Puppy Find. She was a beautiful black & white Dalmatian of 14 weeks old. The breeder - Dawn ** was also included on the ONLINE APPROVED "DALMATIANS BREEDERS LIST" for Texas. She also used PayPal. Another level of protection from fraudulent crooks who are looking for cash up front without a guarantee. I called the breeder and we both asked each other many questions. Satisfied by our conversation, we set a delivery date. She arrived 25 Mar 2016 and very fussy from traveling eight hours. Phone conversations are important. They tell you a lot.
I have had Dolly for a year and she is a wonderful, healthy, happy, devoted Dalmatian who has enhanced or lives with joy and her silly quiet beauty. But as she was the youngest of my doggie family (four adopted street rescues who are 8 years old now) so I had to find her a friend. In Dec 22, 2017, I completed this process again, with another breeder in Idaho named Kim **, receiving a little boy, who was also 14 weeks old and the last of the litter, as a playmate for my female Dalmatian, Dolly.
This was a smooth transaction also. She is a dedicated breeder, in touch weekly for the last 7 mos of Winston's life. Using Puppy Find, phone calls, PayPal and documents, while exchanging many questions, we have acquired with both pups (health guarantees cert for two year) on both my Dalmatians. Winston has been a handful but the bond for my two Dalmatians has quickly become a inseparable life long bond for the pair. "They can't be without each other."
The last question I asked the breeders was "Will you take them back if my life changes." The answer was YES! A clear indication of a devoted breeder whose job is to ensure the welfare of their puppies, no matter what age they reach. I couldn't personally pick out my puppy but with great breeders they can match you with the right personality, ensuring a lifelong friendship and companionship, sharing with you life's daily adventures. Thank you for the chance to praise those breeders who give families pets full of love, adventure and pups that touch so many hearts and minds of those around us.

I contacted the person that ran the ad, and she was the breeder that sold him to her neighbor. He was the largest of the litter, and his adoption price was only $150! She filled me in on the details, got my phone number for his current owner to call me by the next day (which he did). I will be leaving from Dunnellon, FL tonight, at 3am for my 500+ miles to pick up my new puppy, YAYYY!!?? My hope is for a Happily Ever after in his new forever home!

Last year I was looking for a Norwich Terrier Pup. I went on Puppyfind.com and what some breeders are doing is selling Cairn Terriers as Norwich Terriers or mixes to Double or triple their Money! HUGE BUYER BEWARE! I wrote to Puppyfind and they basically said, "We put buyer and seller together." THAT'S IT!

I have used Puppyfind several times to find a puppy and have been extremely satisfied. If you follow their recommendations and visit with the pet breeder prior to sending money, 99% of all problems are avoided. Breeders are simply paying Puppyfind to list their puppies. It's a great service for both buyers and sellers. Thanks for a terrific website!

I found a puppy on Puppyfind.com and called the breeder Karla ** in Little Elm, Texas. She listed 5 puppies and I choose Harley Quinn. She asked us to wire money to her bank and when that didn't work she asked us to send a cashier's check by the next morning so she could put the puppy on the plane with her sister who was a pet nanny. We gave her the money and no puppy showed up. We went back to Puppyfind.com and noticed she listed the puppies again with a different phone number. Puppyfind.com has banned her from their website. Please beware... She is running a scam using puppies, high pressure and lots of sweet talk. Don't let this happen to you!!!

I have never had a puppy and was a little nervous about the process of getting one. I found Vicky's Toy Puppies on Puppyfind.com. I emailed Vicky late at night looking for a puppy, and she got back with me first thing in the morning at 7:30 am with a text to call anytime. I called her back right away. She was very informative and friendly. Since she was all the way in TX and I in MI I told her my concerns about shipping the puppy. She let me know everything I needed to know about shipping and only ships when the puppy is safe to fly at 9 weeks.
Vicky was a text and phone call away every time I had a question or concern. She told me the flight arrangements, when she and the puppy were on their way, and still stayed in contact the whole time until I got my puppy. The poodle puppy was so healthy and level headed. When I took her to the vet even they were surprised. I still ask Vicky questions about the pup, and she is always there with an answer. Vicky is an excellent breeder. I would recommend her to anyone, and I found her through Puppyfind.com.

Recently, our French Bulldog had a litter of puppies and we listed 3 of them for sale. We had some technical difficulties with the listing and customer support was extremely helpful in resolving our issues and getting the puppies listed. After a few weeks, we had received numerous inquiries via the Puppyfind.com website and were successful in getting the litter the exposure in order to find good homes. We would recommend PuppyFind.com for advertising puppies for sale as they seem to have quite a following leading to good exposure and a system that worked for us.

Received in-depth information on many breeders and puppies available for the breed I was interested in. Wide variety of pricing and parent background. Three breeders I talked to were very helpful and payment and shipping were easily arranged. Everything was well organized and all questions were answered. I have never purchased a puppy via the internet and never dealt with shipping, but all was handled by the service without any problem.

I was able to track new litters across the country easily, every day, in my mailbox. Pictures of the dog or its dam and sire are there, as well as the location of the kennel. Two criticisms: locations of the kennels are not on the splash screens and require another step in the process, the search algorithm should allow searching by state or region. Instead every choice is dumped into a single result basket. But a terrific service. I'll use it there next time I go puppy hunting.

I have been searching for a Dogo Argentino puppy (off and on) for three years. Thanks to puppyfind.com, I was able to find the perfect puppy. The puppy was listed for sale by Tasha at TMJ Farms. I can't praise my experience in purchasing a puppy from Tasha at TJM Farms enough! Within a week and a half of our initial contact, I have the most wonderful, healthy puppy ever. Tasha did everything that she said she would do and responded, many times, immediately to my questions. I have never purchased a puppy that had to be shipped before. Thanks to Tasha, everything went perfectly. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a loving well-socialized puppy.

They remove all bad reviews. State you cant write your personal opinion or experience with the seller because it's not documented. So I can't write poor communication but if it was a good review I'm allowed to say great communication. I showed this site proof that that dog was given to me unhealthy. The vet bill dated the day I obtained my dog, and they still removed my post documented or not even after they told me I could resubmit the bad reviews and only state he was sick.
This is bad for buyers because they can write themselves great reviews using different accounts they can create in 5 min but any bad review they request to be taken off and Puppyfind always does and it gives buyers a false sense of them as a seller. Their explanation was it was to stop others breeders from writing false bad reviews to bash them. I told them "all you have to do is ask for proof of the sale therefore that absolves that problem." Because they delete all bad reviews many sick dogs or scammers are getting money through this site. Puppyfind should be ashamed of themselves. There's a special place in hell for them.
Thank you for your comments regarding the review system on our site. Your feedback is important to us and will be taken into consideration for future site improvements.
Usually whatever is stated on the vet report can be included in the review if the dates show the seller would be responsible for the problems.
Hopefully your dog is now healthy, happy and doing well.

I was a little concerned about buying a puppy from Puppyfind.com especially not knowing whether or not the breeders were legitimate and carried healthy puppies. After doing my research I searching to find the perfect puppy, I had finally found her. I got in contact with a breeder Stephanie. The process was fast and simple and not sketchy whatsoever. I wired my money to her directly from the bank. I had received my puppy after 3 days. She was shipped to me via Delta Cargo, I was able to track my puppy's every move as she flew from California to New York. When she landed she came with her health certificate and other information and I couldn't have been happier once I seen her beautiful face and those gorgeous eyes. I highly recommend Puppyfind.com however DO YOUR RESEARCH before buying and never ever do payments via MoneyGram because you will not be able to track where your money is going!

I have used the puppyfind app. to both buy and sell puppies. The people who run this service are kind, professional, and fast to respond to questions, and concerns. Anytime I have emailed with a question they have responded in a very timely and professional manner. I love Puppyfind. What people don't understand is this is a service app. They are in no way responsible for verifying all of their users are the world's best people. As with any business you conduct on the internet, you must be smart. Have everything documented and saved in writing. Don't send cash or money orders to someone. Send all correspondence certified mail, with a return receipt... Protect yourself. A good seller will accept a credit card, PayPal, or a personal check. A good seller will respond in a timely manner, keep their word and never be rude. If you have a bad feeling about the situation - if you proceed, do it with caution.
Again document everything and do not ever deal with a RUDE seller. We pay a lot of money for healthy pets. If a seller You are the customer. Without you they don't sell their puppy. The staff at puppyfind is not there to get involved in disputes. But they provide a wonderful website that lists thousands of available puppies and dogs of all breeds. They do a great job. They keep track of how many people view your puppies and tell you every week. They let you know when you should update your ads. THANK YOU PUPPYFIND!

I found a corgi online thru puppyfind.com. The seller was Charlotte ** from Dayton, TN. I contacted her via text to ask a few questions and how to get ahold on a puppy. She explained that I would need to get a cashier's check or money order, take a picture and send it to her. She would hold the puppy and when she received the check she would remove the listing. I complied with what she required. Then a week after I sent my check to her I touched base to see if she had received it. This was the response I received: "I'm going to send it back. You said that you had one in the mail before and I didn't get it. So I lost a sale by waiting on you. I Don't want your money and you're not going to get my dog!"
I was completely confused by this and called her thinking for sure she had me confused with someone else as I had sent the check exactly when I said I had. She proceeded to be very rude and combative on the phone insisting she "lost a sale" because of me. I don't understand how she thought she lost a sale when I was the sale. Delusional I guess.
After we hung up the texts commenced at which time I told her I would write a nice review for her on puppyfind (I did but apparently sellers can have those removed at their request...Doesn't really help the buyer). She apparently wanted the check overnighted to her. Direct quote from text "Knock yourself out. If you wanted it that bad you should have overnighted the check. That's what most of my smart clients do that really want them." There was no communication whatsoever regarding a timeline on when she got the check. If you want to be treated poorly and possibly have a puppy ripped away from you then charlotte ** is the breeder for you. If not, I would look elsewhere.
Hello, I'm sorry you didn't have a good experience with this seller. You do have to have purchased a dog from the seller in order to leave a review and we do give the seller the option to dispute reviews they feel are invalid, at which time they go through the dispute process and may be reinstated if supporting documentation is provided. PuppyFind.com is a bulletin board service and so you will always have a mix of good and bad. Hopefully you have found a new seller to work with. PuppyFind.com

Please use caution when using the website puppyfind.com. They seem to only allow positive reviews from previous purchasers which doesn't allow potential buyers to get a full picture of the breeder they may be dealing with. I purchased a Great Dane puppy off their site from Brekendanes. The puppy came to me emaciated, full of parasites, sores all over his body and a torn inner eyelid. Even though I provided vet documentation, puppyfind refused to allow me to post a review as they said it was he said/she said. Vet documentation clearly wasn't proof enough for them. Best bet, find a local breeder and stay away from these sites. I learned the hard way.
Hello, We are sorry that you did not have a good experience with the seller you chose. We do require supporting documentation for all disputed reviews. If the dog was not seen by a vet within the first few of days of receiving it then the condition of the dog on arrival cannot be verified.

After unintentionally buying from a puppy mill, I tried to leave a negative review as the only ones on their site (that I used to find my puppy) were all 5-star. A day after posting, it was removed at the seller's request and they made it impossible to get it posted again. Do not use this site without doing lots of research. They make it easy for puppy mills to continue their operations. The woman I bought from has been shut down by the USDA in the past and even the court documents showing $27,000 in fines and and cruelty to animals was not enough.
