WE DO NOT GET ANY PUPPIES FROM THE DEPLORABLE
KENNELS THAT DESERVE TO BE CALLED PUPPY MILLS.   WE
ARE THE ONLY PET SHOP IN THE STATE OF CONNETICUT THAT
VOLUNTARILY SOUGHT AND RECEIVED A LICENSE FROM THE U
. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE WHICH HAS INSPECTION &  
PUPPY CARE REQUIREMENTS FAR STRICTER THAN THE
CONNECTICUT DEPARTMENT OF ANIMAL CONTROL.

IN SPITE OF ALL OF OUR EFFORTS, THERE ARE ANIMAL
ACTIVISTS WHO ARE AGAINST THE SALE OF ANY PUPPIES BY A
PET SHOP OR ANYONE OTHER THAN A POUND OR SHELTER.
WHILE THEY WILL SOMETIMES AGREE THAT IT IS OKAY TO BUY A
PUPPY FROM A BREEDER, THE GOAL OF MOST OF THESE
ACTIVISTS IS TO LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO GET A DOG. RESCUE
ORGANIZATIONS DO WONDERFUL THINGS AND ARE DESERVING
OF SUPPORT BUT THEY SHOULD NOT BE THE ONLY WAY A
FAMILY CAN CONNECT WITH A NEW FAMILY MEMBER. AN
OFFICER OF THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES
WHICH IS FAR MORE RADICAL THAN ANY LOCAL HUMANE
SOCIETIES (WHICH OFTEN POINT OUT THAT THEY HAVE NO
AFFILIATION WITH THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED
STATES) HAS BEEN WIDELY QUOTED AS BELIEVING THAT THE
LIFE OF AN ANT IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE LIFE OF HIS CHILD.

WE OPENED OUR STORE TO OFFER OUR COMMUNITY A BETTER
AND HIGHER QUALITY SOURCE OF FAMILY PETS THAN WE HAD
FOUND WHEN WE PURCHASED EIGHT OF THE TEN DOGS WE
CURRENTLY OWN AND LOVE. SINCE OPENING
EIGHT YEARS
AGO, WE HAVE SOLD OVER F
IVE THOUSAND PUPPIES.

WHEN THE INFREQUENT YET INEVITABLE PROBLEM ARISES, WE
DO OUR VERY BEST TO HELP. IT IS ESPECIALLY FRUSTRATING
WHEN THE PROBLEM IS THE RESULT OF A CUSTOMER SIMPLY
NOT FOLLOWING OUR ADVICE ON HOW TO CARE FOR A PUPPY
OR WHEN A CUSTOMER MAKES THE MISTAKE OF GOING TO A
VET WHO DOESN'T KNOW ALL THAT THEY SHOULD ABOUT
TAKING CARE OF PUPPIES. YOU WOULDN'T TAKE A NEWBORN
INFANT TO A CARDIOLOGIST AND IT IS ALMOST EQUALLY
UNWISE TO TAKE A PUPPY TO A VETERINARIAN WHO IS NOT
USED TO THE UNIQUE NEEDS AND REQUIREMENTS OF PUPPIES.

WE HAVE PURCHASED DOGS FROM OVER 150 DIFFERENT
BREEDERS AND DEAL DIRECTLY WITH 80% OF THESE. IN A
MINORITY OF SITUATIONS WE RELY UPON THE JUDGMENT OF
INDIVIDUALS WHO REPRESENT VARIOUS SMALL BREEDERS
WHO HAVE DECIDED THAT THEY ARE NOT IN A POSITION TO
MARKET THEIR PUPPIES ON THEIR OWN.

WE HAVE BEEN ACCUSED OF ALL SORTS OF DESPICABLE
PRACTICES. ALL WE CAN DO IS INVITE YOU TO STOP BY AND SEE
FOR YOURSELF. COMPARE OUR OPERATION TO ANY OTHER
STORE AND YOU'LL SEE A DRAMATIC DIFFERENCE IN THE LOOK
OF OUR STORE, IN THE TEMPERAMENT AND SOCIALIZATION OF
OUR PUPPIES AND IN THE DEVOTION OF OUR STAFF TO THE
HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF EVERY ONE OF OUR PUPPIES.

IN ORDER TO MEET THE DEMAND OF OUR DIVERSE CLIENT
BASE, WE OFFER MANY BREEDS THAT ARE RARELY FOUND IN
PET STORES INCLUDING GREAT DANES, SHAR-PEIS, COTON DE
TULEARS, BULL MASTIFFS, TOY AMERICAN ESKIMOS AND
MINIATURE AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS. IN ORDER TO OFFER A
WIDE SELECTION, WE SOMETIMES HAVE PUPPIES THAT MAY
REMAIN UNSOLD IN OUR STORE FOR SEVERAL MONTHS. WE
WILL LOWER THE PRICE OF THESE DOGS TO A PRICE THAT IS
WAY BELOW OUR COST IN ORDER TO INSURE THAT THESE
SLIGHTLY OLDER PUPPIES GET PLACED IN A LOVING HOME.

THERE HAS NOT BEEN A SINGLE PUPPY THAT WAS NOT
ULTIMATELY SOLD. WE WILL ONLY DEAL WITH BREEDERS WHO
HAVE THREE YEARS OF CLEAN USDA INSPECTIONS.  WE
REGULARLY MONITOR  USDA REPORTS OF OUR BREEDERS AND
WILL IMMEDIATELY STOP DOING BUSINESS WITH ANY KENNEL
INSPECTION THAT REFLECTS A POTENTIAL PUPPY MILL.

MANY OF OUR PUPPIES ORIGINATE FROM THE MIDWEST
BECAUSE OVER 80% OF USDA LICENSED BREEDERS ARE
THERE. THE FACT THAT A BREEDER IS IN THE MIDWEST DOES
NOT AUTOMATICALLY MEAN THEY ARE A PUPPY MILL. IN FACT,
THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF PUPPY MILLS IN THE UNITED
STATES IS IN LANCASTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA WHERE
THERE ARE MANY AMISH OWNED FACILITIES THAT HAVE BEEN
FREQUENTLY CITED FOR SOME OF THE MOST ABHORRENT OF
KENNEL VIOLATIONS. WHILE IT IS WRONG TO SAY THAT ALL
LANCASTER COUNTY BREEDERS ARE BAD, WE HAVE NEVER
PURCHASED A PUPPY FROM A BREEDER IN PENNSYLVANIA.

ALL OF THE PUPPY MILLS EXPOSED ON THE RECENT OPRAH
SHOW WERE FROM LANCASTER. WE HOLD ALL OF OUR
BREEDERS AND THOSE WHO TRANSPORT OUR PUPPIES TO
EXTREMELY HIGH STANDARDS. WE REQUIRE EXTENSIVE
PAPERWORK DETAILING ALL VACCINATIONS AND
INOCULATIONS ADMINISTERED AND REQUIRE THAT A VET TECH
ACCOMPANY ALL PUPPIES THAT ARE DELIVERED TO US. WE
INSPECT THE INTERIOR OF EVERY VEHICLE THAT DELIVERS
PUPPIES TO US TO INSURE THAT THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF
CLEANLINESS AND MEDICAL CARE ARE MAINTAINED. ALL OF
OUR PUPPIES ARE REGULARLY EXAMINED BY VETERINARIANS
AND, UNLIKE MOST PET STORES, WE NEVER HESITATE TO
OBTAIN VETERINARY TREATMENT AT THE FIRST SIGN OF ANY
POTENTIAL ILLNESS REGARDLESS OF COST.

MANY OF OUR BREEDERS ARE GRANDPARENTS, SCHOOL
TEACHERS, NURSES AND OTHERS WHO BREED PUPPIES TO
SUPPLEMENT THEIR INCOMES. MANY OF THE PUPPIES WE SELL
HAVE PEDIGREES THAT INCLUDE MANY CHAMPION SHOW DOGS.

OUR ENGLISH BULLDOG BREEDER HAS BEEN INVOLVED WITH
THE BREED FOR OVER TWENTY YEARS AND ALL OF HER
BREEDING DOGS DESCEND FROM THE NUMBER ONE RANKED
ENGLISH BULLDOG IN THE UNITED STATES IN 1993. OUR
HAVANESE BREEDER HAS EXHIBITED HER PUPPIES AT THE
WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB SHOW IN NEW YORK. ANOTHER
OF OUR BREEDERS WAS APPOINTED BY THE GOVERNOR OF
MISSOURI TO THE STATE GROUP THAT MONITORS ALL
BREEDERS IN THE STATE. WE HAVE OBTAINED AND SOLD MANY
PUPPIES WITH CHAMPION BREEDING LINES.

WE WILL NOT HESITATE TO PICK UP THE PHONE TO SPEAK TO
ANY OF OUR BREEDERS TO OBTAIN ANY INFORMATION OUR
CUSTOMERS WANT ABOUT THE PARENTS OF A PUPPY OR ANY
OTHER RELEVANT INFORMATION. FEW EXPERIENCES GIVE US
GREATER SATISFACTION THAN SEEING OUR PUPPIES COME
BACK TO US SIX, TWELVE, AND EVEN 60 MONTHS AFTER BEING
SOLD LOOKING TERRIFIC WITH OWNERS WHO COULD NOT BE
HAPPIER. WE OPENED OUR BUSINESS TO DO IT RIGHT AND WE
ARE COMMITTED TO CONTINUING TO DO ALL THAT WE POSSIBLY
CAN TO OFFER OUR CUSTOMERS A POSITIVE AND
PLEASURABLE PUPPY BUYING EXPERIENCE .
