Original review: Oct. 11, 2017

I have some friends who were telling me about Worldwide Puppies & Kittens so I got a Lancashire sub-breed poodle from them. He's name is Benjie, he's 14 years old now and he's given me a lot of responsibility. I love Worldwide Puppies & Kittens. They have very nice people and they take care of my dog. He's so happy when I take him to them but when I used to take him to some other place, he comes out very sad.

    I love the dog that I got from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens. He's great but I didn't get some paper or any of the paperwork for his mother and father. He also had worms and they sent me to some vet who was terrible. Plus, I paid $2,300 for the dog but the amount stated in the receipt when I checked it was $2,780 after tax. I gave them cash that day and they couldn't even throw in a free leash or collar. I didn't like their people or their service and I would never advise anyone to go there.

    I wanted a little companion because I moved away and my family wasn't close by. Other pet stores didn’t have puppies and another pet store that’s actually close to the home was a puppy mill, so I was not going to buy from them. We have a lot of friends that actually bought really sick dogs after spending thousands of dollars from them and dogs that have unfortunately passed away. And then, with the breeders, I personally felt they were way too picky on the people they wanted to give dogs to. So I went with Worldwide Puppies and Kittens and the puppy that I got from them is a teacup Yorkshire Terrier. I went to their office and she was the last one they have.

    She's healthy, tiny, quiet, likes to play, doesn’t bark that much and is sweet with other dogs and people. She's also an eater. I just fed her and she’s looking for more. It’s good for training. Also, if she really wants something, she’s determined to get it. She’ll actually follow what I say. Since having her, I'm so much happier. I like Worldwide Puppies & Kittens a lot. They were really great. They were personable, knowledgeable and easy going. They also gave me a discount with her. It was overall a really good experience. I’d do it again.

    I went to a company called Shake A Paw and I saw that dogs were neglected and that was a bad store. We went to another puppy store in Merrick Ave. to look at a dog that was already six months old but they were giving it away cheaply because it was already too big to give as a puppy and it didn't work out. My brother-in-law lives down the block from Worldwide Puppies. The place was fine and clean and the people were very nice. They had the dog that my son saw online. It's a Bernese Mountain dog which looks like a huge teddy bear. We walked in and the lady asked if they could help us. I already saw the dog in one of their playpens and I told her that I’d like to look at it. She took it out and had my three kids go in the room and play with it. They got along then I played with it and we got it.

    I don't have any problem with the dog and the company but right now, I'm having a problem with the bank that Worldwide Puppies and Kittens had me use. They originally told me that the dog was $3,500. We're financing it and I was told that I can use 0% financing for six months. I told them it’s fine and I’m going to pay it off before six months. She said I’ll get paperwork from the bank in three weeks. The bank called me three different times telling me the paperwork is wrong. They had three different account numbers which weren't from the pet store. The bank that they were using screwed everything up. Nonetheless, Worldwide Puppies & Kittens told me they're going to fix it. So far, life has been great because the dog is a great companion and does everything. It's like having another baby in the house.

    I got a new puppy for my three-year-old granddaughter. We went online, looked up a few stores and walked into one store but she doesn’t want any puppy there. It so happens that the puppy that she wanted was in Worldwide Puppies and Kittens and we bought it there.

    We wanted a dog and we just happened to stumble upon Worldwide Puppies & Kittens while driving through. They had two Maltese and we had to choose between them. There's a baby one and the older one. The people at Worldwide were extremely nice and amazing, unlike in the other places that we went to. They let my kids play with both puppies to see which one they want. In the end, we chose the older Maltese because we didn't want the responsibility of raising a six weeks old puppy. We also wanted a male dog.

    After we picked the six-month-old Maltese, we went out to get lunch. He was ready when we went back. The people at Worldwide asked us to buy the packet but they didn't push us. We just took the basic stuff that we needed. Since adding a new family member, a lot has changed. Every time you go out, you had to have somebody to babysit the dog and it is expensive. It’s not what I expected, but it’s getting better. It makes my kids happy, so it's all worth it.

    I've always wanted a Golden Retriever but I never had them because they were hard to find for a decent price. Mostly because of Worldwide Puppies & Kittens' pricing, I got a three-month-old Golden Retriever from them. I named him Hunter and though it's tiring because he's a little playful sometimes, everything's been good for the most part. Overall, it has been a good experience with Worldwide. The girls were friendly and they made it easier to help me get what I’m going for.

    My son and daughter had been wanting a puppy for a long time. Since we moved to a bigger space, we thought that getting a dog would be nice. Someone told us that purchasing a dog from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens is good. They bought a dog over there so we checked it out. We saw a Cocker Spaniel and then we really liked him. The helpful people working there were very kind to both of us and the puppy.

    Our purchase comes with a collar and a DVD on how to treat the puppy. They also gave us a lot of papers. The puppy is very playful. He always runs around the grass and doesn't get tired. When you don't give him enough food, he tosses his bowl around until you give him more food. Overall, it was enjoyable. You also get to experience every dog to see which one is the perfect for you. When our puppy grows up, we'll get a new one from Worldwide Puppies.

    I used to work at a restaurant in Seaford, near Worldwide Puppies in Bellmore. I would deliver food for the people at Worldwide Puppies at that time. I saw Ellie and thought I'd go back after my shift one day. I always wanted a puppy as a kid. Recently, my grandfather passed away, so when I was still living with my grandma and my mom, I thought it would be a good idea to get a puppy to help us feel a little better and hold those tears for my grandmother mostly.

    I called Worldwide Puppies first and told the employee that I was looking for a puppy that had a little bit of high energy. One that was a little easier to train and not really grows too big. All the employees were fantastic. They were all kind and helpful. They explained everything that I needed to know. The details were clear, especially since this was my first experience with purchasing an animal. I could tell the employees cared about what they were doing, and they had a great attention to detail. They helped me to find a puppy that would match my living situation. The apartment that I moved into was a decent size. I wanted a smaller dog that if I were to get another dog later in the future, they'd get along easy. When I got there, Ellie was already playing, running around, sprinting, and with the tufts of hair, I fell in love. She's good around other dogs and she's not intimidating or aggressive.

    Ellie is my first puppy and she's great. I named her after Eleanor Roosevelt. She costs around $2,000 overall, and I financed her. I pay $133 every 10th of the month. It’s going to be plus interest if I keep paying the minimum. Ellie is easy to train. She's six months old now and she's been very good. She's a little Beagle-Bichon mix. She has little maroon tufts of hair in the bottom of her eyes that curls around which attracted me to her. It's cute.

    She makes my mother a lot happier especially since I'm 21 and the only son. She's her little baby. Ellie loves me and she's attached to the hip. I work at a hospital and I sometimes come home a little upset and losing patience. And then Ellie comes running through the door all excited even when she looked peeved but she’s happy to see us. She's a little loaf of bread too. When we're sleeping at night, she curls up into a little ball like a little monkey. Overall, Worldwide Puppies is great and I love them. I would recommend them.

    I have been wanting a puppy for some time now, and Worldwide was the name given by a friend of mine who lives in the area. I walked around the store, saw a puppy that I was interested in, and they allowed me to spend some time and interact with the puppy. I got a Cavachon, and he’s the best. It’s a lot of responsibility though. It’s pretty much taking care of something else besides myself day-to-day. But nonetheless, I had the best experience with Worldwide.

    I had a cat with my girlfriend but we broke up and she took the cat with her. After that, I really wanted a cat. We had talked about Bengal cats before but I knew that it was going to be hard to find them and they were expensive. I was looking around with my sister and she Googled pet places and found Worldwide Puppies and Kittens. I called and it sounded like they had a very good selection. They were my best option and I definitely think I made the right choice. When I found out that they had a Bengal cat and it was zero down financing, I jumped on the opportunity.

    Choosing the cat was quick because I already knew that I wanted a male Bengal. When I went to the cages, I knew that I wanted the one that I ended up naming Blizzard because he’s a Snow Bengal. He’s eight months old now and likes to play a lot and he’s really energetic. Most of the time, he’s running around, jumping up on things, climbing stuff and he’s always around me. He’s my little buddy and he keeps me company. Since having Blizzard, it's been a lot of fun although he likes to get into mishaps. He's a lot of work but it's worth it. I’ve recommended Worldwide Puppies and Kittens to a couple of people.

    I have a Beagle at home from Worldwide Puppies and Kittens and she’s great and I went back for a second dog. I got an English Bulldog. He was home for a day then we had to take him to the hospital because he had pneumonia and couldn’t breathe. We got him home the week after. He got pneumonia a day later again and took him back to the hospital. Then, the third time, it’s the same thing. He’d relapse with pneumonia.

    Worldwide Puppies and Kittens wanted to switch the puppy. I got a new English Bulldog but he got sick after four days. He went to the hospital and died of canine virus illness. I decided not to get an English Bulldog this time and get a German Shepherd. I’m waiting for that dog to come in so I can take a look at him. Worldwide Puppies and Kittens has been really good and handled me very nicely.

    The manager and one of the workers there were fantastic. They were very helpful even with all these still going on. They were really sweet about it and have been in constant contact with me. Even with a crappy situation, they’ve handled themselves well. They’ve been awesome and the customer service there is great. Their kennel is very fine and I just had a little bad luck. The puppies just had something brewing and we didn’t know.

    I pass Worldwide Puppies and Kittens all the time and I've heard good things about it. I went in and their reps were very helpful. They put us in a room with a couple of different kittens that we liked. I left and then came back and got my kitten. It was a birthday gift and she's wonderful. She's a seven-month-old Silver Tabby Exotic Shorthair, and her name is Bellarmine. It was a fabulous experience. Everyone was very accommodating and they remembered me when I came back, which was nice.

    I wanted another puppy and I was looking for a Bichon. And Worldwide Puppies & Kittens were the only ones that had a Bichon. They have a couple of them. Their reps were very helpful and they didn’t rush me. They made sure that’s exactly the puppy I wanted. They gave me a bag of food, which was helpful for the first day and some kind of a Nutri-Cal that I had to add. I paid for the puppy but I also took advantage of their free shots from the vet as well as their grooming specials. They groom what should be groomed and they did a very good job. They were very thorough and they’re always very pleasant. My Bichon, Mikey, is coming along nicely and he’s very playful.

    I promised my granddaughter a poodle. I saw Worldwide Puppies and Kittens on a street and I stopped because I was going through and it’s near my house. And I got a Shih Tzu from them. His name is Fluffy. He’s a good puppy and he turned one on June 21st of this year. I live in a community complex and I can only have a small puppy. Everybody in the neighborhood loves him. He’s into everything. He doesn’t eat any of my shoes. He doesn’t get into anything unless it’s paper and shoelaces, and we have that.

    When I went in, there was one dog that everyone loves and pets in the window. But I didn’t want that dog. I saw Fluffy and he didn’t bark at all. He sat down and ran around the cage. He’s adorable and tame. He hasn't barked except two times since I’ve had him. He’s the best puppy ever. We keep him clean, smooth, and well. We had the license and the chip when we purchased him. We took advantage of the financing for the shots or inoculations. Worldwide assisted us with that three times and for the different treats that they offered when I came over. But they don’t sell treats anymore, so I have to get other things for the dog. They were very good but there’s one girl in particular that stood out. She would always assist me and she knew my name. I had no problems with the place and they were attentive. It was an awesome experience. I would recommend them but only when anyone likes dogs.

    We wanted an addition to the family and Worldwide Puppies and Kittens was close to home to travel. We visited a lot. They're very friendly and they use a kind of free rule to see the puppies that are available. I asked questions about them too. I liked having the one-on-one time with the puppy in the play area to see if it’s the right match for me. In the end, we got a Yorkshire Terrier Teacup puppy and I named her Impala. There was also great follow-up after we've come home with the new puppy. They made themselves readily available to answer any questions or concerns that we may have. Our entire experience was great!

    I wanted a new dog, and Worldwide Puppies and Kittens were really close to my house. I got a male Yorkie and paid cash for him. I wasn't sure what I wanted at first, but the girls there were very helpful. They have really good and professional staff that try to help you find the perfect fit for your family.

    We have a dog at home now but we just decided to expand the family because sometimes he's lonely. So we felt bad, so we were like, “Let's just get him a friend.” We went to Shake A Paw, but nobody was really helping, so we just left. We saw Worldwide Puppies & Kittens as we were just driving by, and just stopped in there.

    We were supposed to get a big dog but we ended up getting a Yorkie instead. They had a bunch of Yorkies. At first, they showed us a couple of older ones, but then we just decided maybe to go younger. Then they showed some of other breeds too like Shih Tzus. Those were really cute too but I don’t really like those. So we ended up picking out this Yorkie named him Toby. He was like only five months of age. We wanted to go younger but his personality was great. He was jumping up on us, but when he held him, he was all calm. He just had such a good personality. It was like you can't say no to him.

    He seemed very familiar with other dogs. We have a cat at home too and he's getting along great with it. Maybe he was just used to being handled himself. We went for a couple of shots and everything’s doing well as far as the vitamins. The training is going really good too. He literally goes with us everywhere now. He's playful but he loves to sleep. He's really healthy and I think that’s the only thing that has me so happy right now. The guys at Worldwide Puppies & Kittens told us how he would be like as far as characteristics and they're pretty much fully correct on how he is. They did really great. They showed us everything, assisted us fine and I didn’t feel awkward unlike when I was at Shake A Paw. It was an overall great experience. I'd love to go back if I ever need another dog. My brother’s actually gonna be going to get a dog from them.

    The kids wanted to get pets. We were trying to find a pet that is not very known and is not common just like any other pets. I went to adoption centers and to Worldwide looking for an Abyssinian breed and we got two kittens from Worldwide. The boy is Noah and the girl is Chloe. Their staff was nice and everything went well but, on the other hand, I told their rep beforehand that I wanted the kittens to be of the same age. She told me they were two weeks apart, which I thought is not much of a difference, but the other one looked much bigger than the other one. Noah was much smaller than Chloe. The price depends on the age -- the older they get, the less expensive it is -- but she charged me both for the price of the small one which I thought was not fair for their age. I still feel discouraged about it.

    Worldwide Puppies & Kittens was wonderful. They have reputation and when you go in there, it's very clean and doesn't smell like poop. They were very knowledgeable and very pleasant. We decided to get a new puppy because they were nice. Choosing the new puppy was based on the response that I got from the dog. It was very loving, very caring and I know I'd pay a lot, but it doesn't really matter sometimes. She is a Maltese and she's about 7 months. My life is back to what it was since adding our new family member.

    We went to the pound and the ones that they have, like old cats, have grown. My granddaughter is only seven years old so that's why I decided to go to Worldwide Puppies & Kittens. The kitten was a Scottish Fold. My granddaughter calls him Snowball. He's white and brownish, pretty little kitty. The dog is half Husky and Pomeranian so he won't get so big. A pretty black dog also. I financed one of them and one I paid with my debit card. They ain't my pets but they changed my life. I tell my granddaughter to feed the cat before she go to school. You got to walk them and take care of them like little kids. It's your responsibility.

    My baby brother is turning two, so I decided that it was time to get him a little puppy. I have gotten a lot of recommendations from other friends and people who have used Worldwide. Then, I saw that they had a really good review online as well, so I went ahead and went into their store. They were very helpful and I was helped by a multiple of people there including Jen, Rebecca and Desiree. They were absolutely fantastic and very friendly, unlike any other place. They knew so much about the different breeds, pros and cons with how they're going to be with kids and how kids were going to be reacting to them.

    I bought a little boy tricolored beagle and we named him Shilo. My brother's in love with him and the poor dog gets tired out from him. It is a small little boy who likes to grab him and rough house with him so, obviously, they led me to the perfect direction. They also gave me a whole vet care package. They have a lot of stuff like packages with a puppy starter kit. I would like to say thank you very much to Worldwide. They go above and beyond.

    I and the person I was with wanted more kittens so we were gonna breed it but it didn’t really work out because we got separated. So, I just wanted another animal and he’s with me. I spent hours and hours of trying to find a place to get a kitten over the internet but all the cats were neutered and spayed every single place I looked or we have to adopt the rescued. I didn’t want that because I wanted a brand new kitten.

    We went to Worldwide Puppies & Kittens and it was at night time so they were closing up, but they still let me take the time I needed to choose between a few different cats. We told them that we wanted either no fur, extra fur or folded ears and they gave us a cat of each specific type and then we chose in between and picked the folded ears. His name is Nicklaus and he is a Scottish Fold. He should be about five months now. The cat was expensive but we purchased in full. He's changed my life extremely and there's never a dull moment. I had a very decent and great experience with Worldwide Puppies & Kittens and I actually have recommended them to friends.

    I've always wanted a puppy but I wasn't ready and the place where I lived didn't allow dogs. So once I got a place that allowed dogs, I got my puppy. My girlfriend got a kitten at Worldwide Puppies & Kittens so she referred me to go there. Initially I went and saw a Shiba Inu in the window and then they gave me a price. He was the older one, four months old. I was just initially shopping but then I really didn't see the one I was looking for. I wanted one that was eight weeks old so I told them to order me one and they said they'll bring in two. They did and I picked mine over the other one. It was a great experience. No issues at all. Lucky is now seven months old and he's a bundle of joy. I love him and he loves me back. I can't imagine life without him now.

    I was trying to adopt a pet, but I couldn't do that because a home check would be done, so I went to Worldwide and got a kitten. My kitten is about a year old. She's small and curly. She's supposed to be a Bengal, but I went to two vets and they said that she's not. I mentioned this to one of the girls at Worldwide. But she said, "No. She definitely is. It says on her paper." I wouldn't recommend Worldwide, only because I got a cat that wasn't the cat that they said. If they gave me the cat that was actually a Bengal, I would give them a high rating. But the workers are fine. They're really nice people and they are helpful. I go there all the time to chill.

    I was driving through, stopped, and looked through the window of the store. I went in and looked through the different puppies. I happened to notice the little one by the bottom of the cages and he was just sitting there. And I felt like he was the quietest one out of all of them, at that time at least. Then he was taken out of his cage and played with him and somehow never let him go after that. Roscoe is a bundle of energy, and he’s an Ori Pei or a Pug and Shar Pei mix. He lights up everyone’s day in the house. It's always fun to come home to a puppy that’s literally wagging his tail left and right just because they’re so happy.

    I'd recommend Worldwide Puppies & Kittens. I got a new puppy from them for my son and daughter. I went with them because of their store's cleanliness, and aside from that, they didn't try to sell us a dog. We wanted to choose someone that chose us, too. We looked around and, even though the staff at Worldwide showed us several breeds, our new puppy got our attention. She was the only one that wanted to play and interact with us. She was hooked on my son and daughter, and I was the one that was cold-hearted. I kept saying, "No, we shouldn't do this. We shouldn't get this one." She didn't do anything. At the end of the day, she ended up warming me up and I ended up paying for her and bringing her home. She chose us, we didn't choose her.

    Our new puppy is sweet, lovable and playful. She looks like Lady from Lady and the Tramp. I wanted to call her Lady but my children insisted on calling her Lily. And she started to respond to her name the same day. She's definitely spoiled. She gets groomed morning and night. She gets showered twice a week and has her own room and tub. The kids adore her because they get to run up and down in the backyard. She's sixteen weeks old and just got all her shots cleared.

    We previously purchased a kitten who had a congenital defect and we had to give him up to the veterinarian so he could be with someone who’s going to give him constant care. So we looked for a replacement and we looked for a store that was selling a certain breed and Worldwide Puppies & Kittens let us know that they had that breed in stock. They had some good reviews on Google as well so we decided to take the trip out.

    We had an idea of what we wanted because our previous kitten was a Siamese and we're looking to replace it with another Siamese. But when we got to the store, the clerk was so helpful and showed our kitten first because she said that she thought we would enjoy him. So we played with him and we just instantly fell in love. We didn't want to see any other cats after that. Our new kitten is a male Himalayan and he was just the sweetest thing. Since then, our lives have been great. There was so much love and lots of play time. We also have Ferrets and they've bonded as well. They have a new playmate.

    Overall, I was really impressed with the store. All of the animals seemed extremely happy and friendly and the service was phenomenal especially in comparison to some other pet stores that we went to. It was nice to see how excited the pets were at the store, which shows the quality of care. It has been a fantastic experience.
