When my dog ran away I couldn't find her back. A few days later I got a call from Pet Luv saying she had turned up at a shelter. Because we didn't register the microchip that came with her when we bought her at Pet Luv it was traced back to them. Because they took the time to look at my record, we got our dog back. Thanks Pet Luv employees.

Over my x-mas break from school I stopped by this little pet store I use to be real hesitant to purchase from a pet store but walking into this place I was amazed at what a great looking store, smelled clean the workers were constantly cleaning the puppies as they used the bathroom other workers were feeding them and giving them water I was amazed at the cleanliness of this shop. I was asked if I wanted to look at any of the puppies and to make a long store short I came home with a two month old English bull dog with a crate and all supplies included for a great price. If u are in need of a dog cat reptile try this place out I highly recommend them

I used to live in the Burbank area and would come in to Pet Luv all of the time. I will admit that back then things looked like your typical old-school pet store and it was a little stinky. However, I came back in just a couple months ago when my husband and I were shopping around for a new puppy and they have completely remodeled. The store didn't smell at all anymore and the new cages were much better and cleaner than the old ones. We ended up buying my new tiny Yorkie, "Lulu" from them. They paid for the vet visit also, and she checked out healthy. That was 6 months ago and we have had no problems. Their price was very reasonable also- when we are ready for a boyfriend for Lulu we will be back.

I bought a rottweiler from here 5 months ago. when we went in the store appeared decent I mean its a pet store its not suppose to smell like a rose garden. The guy did tell us we needed to take him to the vet within 5 days we did and our dog was perfectly healthy. Some issues however have been that the shop told us he was a German Rottweiler and alot of trainers and people at local pets stores have told us otherwise. I do have his papers that say he is a full breed but I have not really looked into it more perhaps now I will. I will also agree with the person who commented that all the employees just stand around at counter and chat or text because when I was there they had me doing some paper work and the guy was holding my dog on the counter. The guy helping me stepped away to talk to another employee and my dog fell off the counter that was pretty careless! I was furious but he didnt seem to care. He simply said, "Hes ok but if you want I can give you a different puppy!" Seriously?! The dog was limping! I couldnt say sure I will just take another one. I wanted to make sure he was ok he didnt walk on his leg the rest of the evening so the next day we took him right away to vet.Thankfully vet said he was ok! Our little rottweiler is no longer little he is about 70lbs and as healthy as can be. So to conclude this im not sure if to say dont shop here just because the employees are not knowledgable and irresponsible or if to say shop here and save one of their puppies! There is a good selection so....you decide!

dont buy a dog here.
I bought a dog 2yrs ago from Pet Luv on 80th and Cicero about a 2 yrs ago
people kept telling me (traners,pet stores ) he
is not a pure bread. So I sked for his papers again.
got them after calling and calling. Looks like the breader
is not so honest. So the only thing I could do is pay for
a DNA test which is not cheap then maybe get a lawyer so dont buy from them.

I recently walked into this pet store and the smell was terrible. There is no reason why a small petstore with 3 idle employees talking at the register should smell that bad. The puppies appeared to be shivering. When I took a look at the other animals in the store, ALL had filthy water bowls. The rabbits, rodents, and birds were drinking out of water bowls with feces and food in it. Being an owner of a aquatic turtle, I decided to check out the 8 or so turtles that were crammed in a ~20 gallon tank. The water in that tank was murky and contained no filter or basking light. The turtles looked sick. I especially noticed one, which was completely submerged and wasnt moving. I told the employee that it was dead. Sure enough, after he poked it a bit he decided it was. How can a pet store have dead animals in its cages?! Another turtle also looked dead, but I decided not to even bother and told the employees that they should take better care of these pets, then left. Animals were living in disgusting conditions and instead of cleaning their cages, the workers were sitting and talking. This is digusting. I would NEVER buy anything from there. That place should be shut down. All they want is profit.

About 5 years ago, I bought a siamese kitten from this store. I explicitly and clearly stated I wanted a female. The worker showed me two and I chose one. She wrote up the sales receipt as "female lilac point siamese" and added that lilac points are rare. I brought the kitten for first shots to the vet recommended by Pet Luv. Then about a month later, I brought her to my own vet for additional shots. At that time, my vet informed me that the kitten was a MALE. Further he was NOT a so-called rare lilac point, but a blue point. Wow, Pet Luv AND their vet did not know this?? I immediately called the store and the owner was very rude and basically said, "too bad." Lucky for me, I had charged the purchase to my credit card and the credit card company stood behind me and I received a refund. This store is awful and the owner is rude. I feel sorry for the animals there.

I just recently purchased a beautiful German Shepherd puppy from Pet Luv and he is absolutely amazing! My husband and I had been shopping around and visited a number of pet stores in the Chicago area. We actually decided to purchase from Pet Luv because they were the ONLY pet store that actually provided real information about where the puppy came from. I received the breeder's name and address, along with a picture of our dog's parents and proof that the father's hips are strong. This was really impressive, seeing as how other stores wont give ANY information about breeders. The sales person who helped us also managed to get the price lowered and we feel like we got a very reasonable price- and she threw in some dog food and a collar and leash. I would definitely recommend Pet Luv.

I recently purchased a puppy from this store we brought her home only to find out she was completely covered with fleas ! Donot Buy From There ! Most of the puppies there are so cramp into cages that are full of urine and feces. Not to meant that when you walk in the smell is horrible. The owner was nowhere to be found he/she didn't even contact me to say sorry. He had his employees do it.

I purchased a Cocker Spaniel. A female puppy of 9 weeks. Paid $700. Had to take her to vet between 5 days or a week after date of purchased. Not only was she in terrible condition but had Ashtma, and phneumonia. Our lil "Lady" had to be in hospital for over a week to overcome her flu, phneumonia, and whatelse.....!! I definitely would not recommend from buying from them again. She came from a litter of 4 pups. I do however have the information of the breeders. :-) Dont ask me how I got this info..... I just recently walked in the store just to check the other puppies, there is now a gate so you cant go past. Maybe so you wont see how bad this puppies are. 3 or 4 pups in cages. So SAD!!!!

I bought my dog 9 1/2 years ago from pet luv
she is terrific there's always a smile on my face when I see her..
But it felt like my dad and I were going into an animal shelter.. or worse
We bought a Boston Terrier..
She was shaking like crazy in that cage and crying..
It looked like animal abuse to me honestly..
If you want to help an animal go to Pet Luv you will give them much better then what they have there.
The problem is when we took our dog to the vet she was more sick so we stopped..
three years ago we took her to the vet and he put something else in her and she couldn't walk for a week and for three months she couldn't jump or didn't want to play..
So now after all that we decided if something happens to her then we will take her to a vet..
She is healthier then ever and she had her birthday 2 weeks ago!! she's ten but she's so hyper like if she was a new born

It had been very difficult trying to find my perfect puppy over the past few months, but thankfully I found Pet Luv. In addition to having a large selection of puppies (all of which appeared clean and happy from what I could see), the staff was knowledgeable and helped me learn how to take care of my tiny new puppy. I was also pleased to find out that it was a family owned business that has been in the area for over 35 years...not some franchise or chain. They had all of the supplies that I needed to take care of my new puppy, and they also had a fabulous puppy boutique. I bought an adorable pink dress and collar, and I went back recently for some cheap grooming. I couldn't be happier with my puppy. When I bought the dog, she came with a free vet exam and the dog was up to date with all of its vaccinations.

I have bought two dogs from here and they are absolutely gorgeous. I think that this pet shop has just about any and every type of dog available and if they don't they will order one for you. This is the only petshop that has rare dogs and their dogs are much nicer than any other pet shot.

We just can't say enough good things about Pet Luv Pet Center. We got our beautiful miniature schnauzer there and she has brought us nothing but joy! She is healthy and good natured, and when we were there, there were so many others it was hard to choose. All of the puppies were so cute! And the staff was really helpful. We were impressed that every dog comes with a free visit to a vet, and the store even called us a few weeks later to see how we were doing. If you want a new puppy, go to Pet Luv!

Tonight I went to Pet Luv to look at potential companions. While walking around I watched one of the employees feeding some of the puppies. She opened a cage of two yorkies to check the bowl, left the cage open, went in back and in a matter of a second one of the puppies step out of the top cage and fell to the floor.

When she noticed the puppy on the floor she just put it back in the cage without even fully examining it for an fractures.

I went into the store, and found a beautiful puppy I could not do without. I paid for it with my credit card, and guess what? I now have over $1000 of additional charges in which someone took my card number, and has been using it to buy food, gas, whatever. DO NOT GO HERE!!

When looking for a new family member we searched for weeks with no luck. Then I remembered my mom had found her Samoyed at Pet Luv.She provided my mom with 15 years of love and loyalty.When we walked into the store it was clean,and the staff could not have been more helpful.The ID request is understandable for the protection of the store and the puppies. We found the most lovable and sweetest cockapoo and our family could not have found a better match.

I had been looking for a puppy for my family for about six months with no luck. I tried people in the newspaper, but they were all pretty creepy. And what if I had a problem with my dog? Sure people say any responsible breeder will handle a problem, but I don't think some creepy lady with a litter labradors is really going to do anything for me. I chose to get my dog from Pet Luv because I wanted a puppy and I wanted a guarantee if there ever was a problem. Sure I could have driven 2 hours to the closest registry listed breeder and have paid way too much for my family pet, but Pet Luv is 15 minutes away from my house and their prices are fair. How will a breeder who is two hours or more away going to help me when my dog gets sick? The manager there was able to answer all of my questions thoroughly and instruct me on techniques for training. I left with my new little baby satisfied and happy I chose Pet Luv.

Pet Luv is in the neighborhood and I went there when I was looking for a Shih-Tzu. First of all, they have these poor animals literally crammed in cages, sometimes 2-3 per small cage. During one visit, after summoning the store assistant (who acted as if he really did NOT want to help me), he finally came over and allowed me to hold one of the baby Shih Tzus. This one smelled EXTREMELY bad and although his coat appeared healthy, he had fluid coming from his eye. The assistant also could NOT answer any of my questions regarding Shih Tzus and suggested that I find assistance online.

Needless to say, I didn't purchase the poor animal but instead decided to pay a visit to PetLand in Lansing, IL (167th Torrence).

I've read the reviews on the pet store and do agree that there may be one too many puppies per holding area, but it's only apparent in the middle glass holding areas. My partner and I have purchased 5 Cocker Spaniel puppies within the last 3 years. Our oldest is almost three years, our youngest is 4 months old. All of our little ones are just fine. The only problem that was common among all of them, with the exeption of the oldest one was the expected kennel cough, but, their vet treated the cough free of charge. I guess I can understand the I.D. thing while holding a puppy. When my partner and I were there for our youngest and asked to hold her, the gentleman asked for his I.D., my mouth dropped, how dare he ask us for I.D...hello, don't you remember us? He then informed us it was to prevent customers from running away with the dogs as one man did with a pittbull. He offered, however, after we informed him of buying the pup, to take off $ 50, well, you figured after so many dogs they'd do something for us. So anyway...if you must know about this place, it's a decent place to find a diverse group of puppies, as for trying to get dogs with pedigree papers, good luck. I will however mention about of little Isabelle. She's going to be two, we purchased her from there. She was 4 months and looked quite young. When we took her to the vet for her check up, the vet said she has kennel cough, big surprise. Two days later she was extremely fatigued and not eating, we scheduled her with out vet and he diagnosed her with pnemonia. He recommended taking her to the store's vet. My first thought was anger, how could they not catch that..and then take her back to get her treated, no way, but after our vet told us the cost, we decided to contact the store's vet and explained the situation, it was all covered since we has just bought her a few days before. After 10 days at their vet, she was released. We paid absolutely nothing, and she pulled through. However, and I don't believe Pet Luv is to blame for this, Isabelle is the runt of the litter, he state will always be fragile, she just got over pancratitus. She's petite for her age, but she's a strong fighter, I'd hate to see what other families would have done with her and all her challenges. All in all, the store's pretty good, it's a convienient place to find puppies, however, with how some of the dogs on the southside get treated, I don't think they should be located right on Cicero and 79th.

I've read the reviews on the pet store and do agree that there may be one too many puppies per holding area, but it's only apparent in the middle glass holding areas. My partner and I have purchased 5 Cocker Spaniel puppies within the last 3 years. Our oldest is almost three years, our youngest is 4 months old. All of our little ones are just fine. The only problem that was common among all of them, with the exeption of the oldest one was the expected kennel cough, but, their vet treated the cough free of charge. I guess I can understand the I.D. thing while holding a puppy. When my partner and I were there for our youngest and asked to hold her, the gentleman asked for his I.D., my mouth dropped, how dare he ask us for I.D...hello, don't you remember us? He then informed us it was to prevent customers from running away with the dogs as one man did with a pittbull. He offered, however, after we informed him of buying the pup, to take off $ 50, well, you figured after so many dogs they'd do something for us. So anyway...if you must know about this place, it's a decent place to find a diverse group of puppies, as for trying to get dogs with pedigree papers, good luck.

This store smelled so badly like pickles and pee.I agree there were many dogs with other breeds. They were getting bitten. When asked to see a dog you need to give the employee your I.D.I held a cockapoo and she had pee stains on her leg. i ask if they gave the dogs a bath and she said no because of the cold! WTFThe employees were helpful but the store does need a good cleaning.

I had enough dogs already but after seeing a neglected pomeranian at this Pet LUV store I decided one more dog who was suffering wouldn't hurt. So I asked to hold him and it took about 15 min for the employees to get the cage open. He was so happy to be held that my heart just fell to the ground. When I took him to his follow up visit after purchasing him the vet informed me of all of the blood in his stool from stress. He was in his cage for 6 months and the environment was a terrible one for him to be in. Hex this hell hole of a store. Animals do not deserve this neglect!!!

I brought home a mini long haired sable doxie and he is simply amazing. However, if it was not for the lady behind the counter that brought out this tiny, underweight, frightened pup, I have no idea how he would have made it.(He was hid in the back) After $3,500.00 of aftercare at the University of WI and plenty of my own vet bills at home, he is doing just fine. The workers care for these dogs, I now have come to know that. But there are SO MANY DOGS in one cage, some that have no right to be with other breeds that prey on them, it's no wonder that they have to stay up day and night just to survive. Shame on the owner of this so called Pet LUV store. I had 7 rescue dogs already and it was obvious that this doxie would not have made it and the worker pretty much brought me this dog and asked me to take it home. They don't deserve this kind of abuse.
