I gave this place one star because it's required otherwise it would be getting something much worse!!! This place is horrible to put it mildly! I actually purchased a dog from her at a "meeting place" prior to visiting her place of business a year or so later. My shadow is okay, he has allergies etc, but nothing too uncommon for his breed...had I seen her facility prior to buying him I wouldn't have purchased a dog from her at all!!! Unfortunately I didn't and I told a friend of mine about her and decided to schedule a visit with her to look at a couple of schnauzer's and yorkies. After several cancellations she finally agreed to meet me and my friend at a place of business that she was cleaning for and stated she would have the dogs with her. My friend and I agreed and at the said time went to the location but she was not there. I had kind of gotten fed up with all the prior cancellations so I decided just to head out to her place of business. When we arrived I was in no way prepared to encounter what I was about to be seeing. First of all there were mattresses blocking the windows...weird, but okay. My friend and I walked up to the door and could hear what sounded like hundreds of dogs barking. We knocked on the door several times and got no response...probably from all the dogs barking! Finally a man walked around from the side of the house and I told him that I had spoken with "Lois" and was supposed to see a couple of dogs. The guy brought us around to the back where he had us walk up some rickety back stairs to a balcony/deck. We were freezing out there. Finally after waiting what seemed like forever, Lois came out and actually invited us into the "house". We were at the kitchen....and OH MY GOSH!!! I didn't want to touch a thing!!! Lois said she would be back with with dogs and went through a doorway that was covered by a blanket. The smell of this place was nauseating and the cleanliness? well, let's just say I don't think her kitchen is able to be rated on a scale that mentions cleanliness. FILTH is the only word that comes to mind. I witnessed a cockroach crawl over her dirty dishes on her stove people!!! Febreeze couldn't even help this place!!! I know this all sounds extreme and exaggerated, but I assure you it is not. She came back with a couple of moms with their pups in cages...the guy was there helping her. They looked horribly sad and I told her thanks but not quite what we were looking for. We headed out the same door she let us in, down the stairs and around to the front of the place. I can not believe this woman operates any facility!!! she should be shut down for sure! Such a shady character to operate the way she does. Whoever wrote the "good" review must have the wrong place or works for her or is her because she is HORRIBLE!!! I called the area vets and they are all aware of her and state they can only tell me not to purchase from her but can not shut her down. They did refer me to the department of agriculture. I called them and had to leave a message. No one ever responded. Such a shame!

All the people that write these reviews and really believe that the Adrian's Puppy Paradise is a puppy mill, call your local tv stations, call the HSUS, call your local politicians.. anyone that you think might listen and keep calling until they do listen.
I WOULD NOT LEAVE ANY STARS FOR THIS PLACE, BUT I DON'T HAVE A CHOICE AND HAVE TO GIVE ONE.

Adrian's Puppy Paradise is hell. Patricia M, the alleged driver and paralegal for them is either covering for them or is stupid. I am a humane investigator and I can tell you that place has violation afer violation filed against them. I just got off the phone with people who are going to do an undercover investigation to film the filth, the cages stacked everywhere, the dogs covered with yellowish filth from having to live in their own urine, etc. If this place is so great, Patty girl, why won't they let people tour their entire facility? The only reason they are still around is because the department of agriculture is sotf on puppy mills -- tho that is beginning to change as hard core evidence of the puppy mill horrors begins to surface. It's just a matter of time before photos and video of Adrian's is given to the media -- and the evidence will be gathered by a most unlikely source. Oh, and now there are allegations, being confirmed if true, that Adrians is involved in a very very serious felony crime that has nothing to do with puppy mills. Stay tuned.

I have been to this puppy mill myself. I did not purchase a puppy. I knew a relative of this lady. There were so many dogs. I could not believe it. This way 15 yrs ago. I can not believe she is still in business. How can this be happening? With so many saying that there have been several reports made about this place. What is going on in our world????? I am totally heartbroken about this!!!

Reply to Ashley F You are confusing some other puppy people with the people from Adrians Puppy Paradise.They were nowhere near any Flea Market in January 11-09.Either that or you are spreading malicious gossip.Do you know what Defamation of character is?I suggest you correctly identify someone before you make public accusations against a business.How do I know this?,I am the driver and paralegal for them.

I recently got a puppy from here. I did get a chance to go and see where they stayed. These people that work here are doing an amazing job. Everything has a place and its insane on how it all gets done. But it does. The cages are clean, filled with water and food. Mommas and babies are playing. I got to look around and the hardest part was not being able to take them all home, haha. I will defiently be coming back to get a little sister for my baby girl. You people who are taking all your time trying to shut this place are CRAZY. Spend your time and effort to try to shut down real puppy mills. The ones who dont have food and shelter. Please, if you want a new family member, make and appointment and go and see for yourself. They are wonderful people. Dont take my word, GO.

I posted a review in 2006 and guess what, this lady is STILL running this despicable facility that she calls a paradise.

How do we get her inspected?
Does anyone know how to go about it.
Someone needs to do something.

I went to Adrian's Puppy Paradise, and it was just awful!!!
As many said, you cannot go in the kennels to see the parents,
and it sounds and smells like there are hundreds of dogs!!!!
the puppies are not socialized, sikly and crammed in cages.
DEFINITE PUPPY MILL!!!
SHUT HER DOWN!!!!

In 2006 my sister got a job working for the woman who owns adrian's puppy hell. She truly believed that maybe she could help some of these poor helpless animals. At that time she had 427 dogs in her Kennel. None of these dogs ever see the light of day. They are in tiny cages stacked 6 high and 30 wide. All of these animals eat,sleep, and live their entire lives laying in their own feces. My sister worked for her for only one day. She just couldn't bear to see the way these animals are treated everyday there is no way to help but to make sure that this woman never owns a single animal ever again in her life. Too anyone out there looking to buy a puppy never buy one from a pet store. Where do you think these dogs come from? No responsible breeder that cares about their pupppies would ever knowingly sell them to a pet store. Check your local papers, search the internet, adopt a homeless pet. When you do find the puppy you want insist that you see the puppies parent's in the environment they live in everyday. I breed miniature dachshunds and I would never have a problem inviting anyone into my home or my kennel to view my dogs. I have nothing to hide. Also any responsible breeder will be glad to offer you a written health guarantee for your puppy. Please!!!! I beg of everyone out there not to buy puppies from these people that could care less about their animals or anyone elses. For every puppy this woman sells it allows her to buy 2 other adult dogs to breed and torture. Can you live with the fact that you just condemned another helpless animal? P.S. the one star rating is only because this website does not allow you to choose negative stars.

i bought a chihuahua from this place. When we arrived we came upon a buliding with mattresses covering the windows.When we got out of the car, just standing in front of the house, you could hear about a thousand dogs barking. The lady then would not let us inside, she instead told us to wait outside and she would bring the dogs to us. She brought out a carrier which had a mother and the baby chihuahua in it.Both dogs were beyond freaked out.It seemed like they had never been in human contact before.The mother's nails were so long, they were growing back into the pads.I origanily wanted a girl, but i couldnt bair to leave the puppy there.I also attempted to buy the mother off of her to but she declared she still had alot of breeding left in her. Working at a vet myself, the first stop for my new puppy was the vet. The doctor told me he had a very bad heart murmmer, and bad knees, which would have to have surgery on. JoJo (my chihuahua) now is three, and has a great life despite his disabilities. He only walks on three legs, and his heart murmmer worsens as he gets older.I would never trade JoJo for any other dog But i would definatlly not reccommend anyone buying a puppy from this PUPPY MILL!!

One star is even too much! Kels J, I really truly hope that you can do something to shut this place down. No person (and no animal) deserves to go through that pain. I went to Adrian's Puppy Hell probably 4 years ago and I must say that it sickens me deep into my soul that these people are still breeding animals. I understand that it is very difficult to leave an animal in such a horrible place, but honestly you are not doing yourself or the animals any good by doing so. Giving these people money only ensures that they will continue to breed unhealthy animals. I can only hope that these monsters will pay for what they are doing to these poor animals- sadly, in my opinion there is no justice harsh enough to compensate for what they have done. PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANIMALS FROM THESE PEOPLE!!! Follow your instincts and don't even step inside their puppy hell!!!

I'm 16. I've wanted a puppy since i was about 6. We foolishly went to Adrian's puppy paradise. We thought hey they have great prices why not give it a try. We drive up and the place looks like something from a horror movie. We walk up the stairs and you could smell the stench from the outside. We went in and i thought i might be sick. You could hear the dogs whining in the next room. The lady was shady. Something just wasnt right. The helper brought up about five different dogs but i wanted a yorkie. I found the perfect little boy. The lady said she had other people coming in so she wanted to hurry us along because she didnt want them to know how much we paid because she could get 775 for it in chicago (we paid 675) he was 10 weeks old. We got him on monday. we brought him home and he seemed to be fine. thurday morning was the last time he ate. friday night he started acting weird. he was dry heaving and coughing. i woke up saturday morning and he was laying on the floor making this awful noise. we rushed him to the vet and the vet said hes dying. we spent all day at the vet. we then tok him home and were told to force feed. we did that for a few hours then i had him laying in his box with a heating pad. he was very sick. he stood up and climbed his way out onto my lap(it was a very big box) i held him and walked with him for a bit then i was bringing him back to my room and i told him "baby if you want to go its ok i wont be mad" because i knew how much pain he was in. He died in my arms no more than 1 minute later. I had him for five days. and i miss him so much. DO NOT BUY A PUPPY FROM HER. SAVE YOURSELF THE HEARTBREAK. he had giradia and kennel cough and he obviously didnt just get them. we've paid over 1000 for him in the 5 days we had him for his purchase his vet bills and not to mention all his toys food and bed. We ARE getting a lawyer. She WILL be taken down. She doesnt take care of her animals. The price is not worth the heartbreak when your animal dies or is very sick. DO NOT get one from ADRIAN'S PUPPY PARADISE. They will not live. Thanks to all who have read this and i hope i've changed someones mind. BY THE WAY SHE ISNT EVEN WORTH ONE STAR.

This place is disturbing. My daughter and I foolishly went inside the place even though the outside looked dirty and actually scary. The smell of urine could be smelled outside the door. We shouldn't have gone in but we saw when the opened the door the poor puppy we were interested in and just couldn't bear to leave him there. The puppy smelled like urine and was yellow on the underside obviously because he was laying in his own urine. I knew that even though my gut told me to get out of there - it just seemed cruel to leave him if I could afford to pay for him to be helped. When I asked about the parents - I was told that she got rid of them to get more. ??? When I asked about the pet store she took them to as she told me on the telephone - she said she has a friend who is a groomer and takes them there. When asked about the vet who checks them and does shots and worming - she informed me that she did them herself. She was writing in dates of vaccinations while I was there. Our vet checked "Jackson" - he has a hernia - heart murmur and eyes that turn inward - a name for that but I can't remember. Jackson is going to require tons of TLC and care for the rest of his life. Our vet at Watseka Animal Hospital says most of the puppies from there have Parvo and die. They and numerous others have called Animal Control and the Dept. of Agr. to complain. I called today and they said they would investigate - Animal Control said we have to go through the DOA and that they have hundreds of complaints. What is going on? Who is going to rescue all of these animals and shut her down? Most people cannot afford to pay her prices and then spend hundreds at the vet on top of that. Maybe it was foolish to take Jackson - but I feel like he deserved a chance for a wonderful life with a family that will baby him and try to make up for the horrible first 12 weeks of life. One more thing - our vet doesn't think he was ever out of the cage - believes cages are stacked on top of each other and the animals feces and urine are all over each other. The smell of poor Jackson will not come out - we purchased special shampoo from the Dr. but she said his hair will stay yellow colored until his grooming in the near future. Please please help shut this lady down!!!! Guess I should add that she did agree to let us get 1/2 of our money back. We could have taken him back for another puppy ----NO WAY!! Jackson is going to have a wonderful life free from that lady!

This place is disturbing. My daughter and I foolishly went inside the place even though the outside looked dirty and actually scary. The smell of urine could be smelled outside the door. We shouldn't have gone in but we saw when the opened the door the poor puppy we were interested in and just couldn't bear to leave him there. The puppy smelled like urine and was yellow on the underside obviously because he was laying in his own urine. I knew that even though my gut told me to get out of there - it just seemed cruel to leave him if I could afford to pay for him to be helped. When I asked about the parents - I was told that she got rid of them to get more. ??? When I asked about the pet store she took them to as she told me on the telephone - she said she has a friend who is a groomer and takes them there.

Kerrianne must work for them because I cannot believe someone can be that naive. Did you not notice the roaches crawling up the walls? She refused to let us see the parents of the puppy I was interested in and right when she handed us the papers to sign a roach ran right across the desk. Even the outside of the building look's like a dump. I' m sorry but I used to work for an animal hospital & even sick dogs with diarrhea did not smell as bad as her place when I went in. We also used to see some of the puppies that people bought from them. Most of them had kennel cough, a couple had parvo(I'm really sure she gives those vaccines) and i will never forget the one infested with maggots. Also many died from delivery complications. This breeder does not have a federal license and I can only hope someone finally shuts her down!

I can't believe anyone would purchase even 1 puppy from this awful place, let alone 4. Kerianne B, you need to wake up and smell the coffee and call this place what it is a PUPPY MILL. There is no excuse for filth, smell or otherwise when they care about the animals. I would like to personally see her shut down. First of all, she has too many, too many breeds, and that's a red flag. Go farther down the road to the Kankakee County Humane Society. There's no smell there. miss informed, I don't believe you meant to give your review 5 stars -

i have gotten 2 min pins and 2 Chihuahuas from Adrian's Puppy Paradise. When i go there, i see hard working people who care a greatly for the puppies. The kennel is private and it is best that strangers stay out. people and especially school age children carry germs and sometimes viruses that can threaten the health of young puppies. Also, mothers of the puppies can harm the puppies if they are excited by strangers. It would be ignorant and hazardous to let strangers into a kennel. They are not a petting zoo. I live in Milford, 45 minutes away, and i wouldn't go anywhere else. my 4 dogs are wonderful and healthy. The show cages are small, for transport purposes, but the dogs actually reside in larger areas. And as for the smell; dogs poop, dogs pee, if someone doesn't understand this, there is a nice stuffed animal section at Wal-mart. They are cleaned regularly, but smells will linger. Anyone who has had a puppy knows that. Also, small breed puppies will be small at 8 weeks, that does not make them underage. they aren't going to be as large as an 8 week old Lab.

PROS: shots up to date and starter food provided.
CONS:

I went to Adrians to look at some puppies and they wouldn't even allow my family into the kennel, which smelled so bad, we could smell it while standing outside. Any breeder with nothing to hide shouls allow you to walk the premises. Then we go into the connecting apartment where the owner lived and inside the dirty kitchen, we still smelled the oder and her kennel worker brought up some puppies that were underaged and looked mangy. Another puppy she said was pure bred was definately not a pure bred. We got out of there as fast as we could and reported the puppy mill immediately.
