Almost 14 years ago I bought my teacup poodle Little Bit. I still have her today and she has been the love of my life. I have no complaints what so ever about Puppy Love and would recommend them in a heartbeat! Bitty is the sweetest dog one could ever ask for. Thank you Tanya for this wonderful part of my life.

We got our little girl from Tonya 7 years ago and will definitely want to go back! She has been the best animal we have ever had. I would get another now, but ours is so spoiled that she would not accept it because she rules the roost. Besides the animal being a perfect, Tonya was very professional during my visit and then when I took my dog to my vet she recognized knowing who she is and spoke highly of her. You can't get any better than that Tonya!

I bought my puppy, Meistro from Tonya about a year ago and I could not have been happier. I have personally seen Puppy Love Haven when it was at the Mexico location (sever years ago when I bought my first dog) and its home now in Benton City (where I bought my last dog). I have seen the facility that he was born and raised in and let me just say how happy I am to know that Meistro has been loved from day one. Both facilites had ample space for puppies to be able to run around and play, as well as plenty of food and water at their disposal. The whole atmosphere was different than other stores I had been to. When I walked in to see the puppies, they werent timid and scared, instead they were excited to see people and happy. That tells me that these puppies were taken care of and loved deeply. That inference was confirmed when I met Tonya. She is such a sweet lady and very passionate about her puppies. I would highly recommend shopping at Puppy Love.

Puppy Love Haven is by far the nicest and best pet shop in Mid MO. I bought my puppy (a malty/pom) from Tonya several years ago and have never had any problems at all. My puppy, not so much a puppy anymore, has always been happy, healthy, and loving. I would and have recommended Puppy Love to all of my friends and family.

I bought my boxer from Puppy Love Haven 5 years ago. She is the joy of my life. I was impressed of how clean her place was and the knowledge the lady had about the different breeds she had. She helped me pick the puppy that was right for me and my family. I have always had bigger dogs but I always got them from the shelter or a friend. You don't always know what you are getting into with that. I am so glad I got Dakota. She is beautiful and always has been so smart and healthy. I would highly recommend Puppy Love Haven to anyone that truly wants another family member. If you want a good puppy go there first you won't be sorry.

We bought our Bichon 6 years ago. She just celebrated her 6th birthday this Oct. 4, 2010. We were not actually looking for a white dog the day we went but we were allowed to take out her and her 'cabin' mate which was her sister dog. We looked at the little basset hounds and the cairn terrier and all of the breeds that day. However it was up to my daughter whom we were finding the pet for to join our family. At the time we had a newborn, a toddler and then our oldest / the new owner, was 5. So we needed a pet that would live hopefully through highschool at least and would be able to withstand 'our lifestyle' of toddlers and family as well as be easy to train and just a great family dog. From the minute the two were on the floor, Lacee Maye seemed to just 'pick' our daughter and we were hooked. So, as we could not put her on hold we went home to think about it and we had actually heard really respectible things from our vet about Puppy Love Haven, and she totally reccommended the Bichon pure bred and let us know of possilbe issues with all and any pure bred breeds, and she had heard of the kennel it was raised by, and so we were confident that this would be a good choice. WE would reccomend Puppy Love Haven and infact are only commenting to help others to feel confident to do the same. She has been and continues to be a great dog with nothing but normal issues regarding this breed as far as some issues with matting and skin sensitivities but not due to breeding. Just common.

I bought a dog from her new location in Benton City. She said it was home raised, it was crate raised and still goes around in circles. If I had not lost my other dog and felt lost without him, I would not have bought my Yorkie from her. The parents were on site but kept in raised cages in the back of the "office" They were exposed to the weather. For being home raised they were not. I would not recomend buying from them. Before buying a puppy, find out all you can from the breeder, you want a hobby breeder, one that raised the dogs inside the home with their family, not being outside in cages.

I??m not sure what I am being accused of. Yes I do raise a select few puppies at my home in Benton City and I also purchase puppies from USDA breeders. I have two heated and air-conditioned buildings that I use. One for my Mama dogs (whelping) and the other for puppies that are weaned and ready to go to their new home. I am licensed by the State of Missouri and inspected regularly by them and a Veterinarian. As a licensed kennel with over 26 pages of Missouri laws I am required to have a program of Vet care, exercise program and provide a safe environment out of the elements. I have never once had a non compliance issue. I care and love each and every dog and puppy I have. The last I knew dogs like to sunbathe and smell fresh air and get really excited when people come to visit. Puppy Love Haven has been in business for 29 years for a reason. We do provide quality puppies.

1/20/09. Note*** Our dog was treated extremely well. He never missed a vet visit, was crate trained, took puppy classes, looked after all day by my mom who works from home, etc... Basically, he had all the amenities every puppy should have.

We bought a puppy from here roughly three years ago. Our puppy had problems from the first week that we got him, and although they, and almost every other store, will advertise that they guarantee the dogs health, please take notice. If you are like me, or anyone else with a heart, even if you were to have problems with your puppy, after you have taken him/her home, you'd feel very cruel giving them up. Anyway, we merely chalked the illness' up to being a puppy. After a few months, our puppy, a boston terrier, began holding his back leg up, which was what we later found to be luxating patellas. Two surgeries and almost $1200 later, he was somewhat getting better until about a month ago when he had his first seizure. The seizures continuted, at one point having as many as 5-10 a day. Unfortunately, our dog had a brain tumor and we were forced to put him to sleep late last week.

I know it can be said that our dogs problems were

It is really hard to respond to a post like this when you don??t know who the person is. All of the puppies that come and go through Puppy Love Haven are vet checked for general health conditions. However genetic problems can show up as the puppy grows. Puppies mature at such a fast rate. Typically a toy breed will reach adulthood at about 6 months old. This is why we provide a 1 year guarantee for genetic problems. I realize you thought you were doing the right thing by keeping this puppy because of the unknown of what would happen. But please rest assured that I do work with rescues and foster parents that provide medical attention and have the capabilities to care for dogs or puppies that aren??t able to give you many years of quality life. I am so sorry for your loss and sorry you feel like you had a bad experience with Puppy Love Haven.

We bought a Dachshund from Puppy Love Haven that was advertised as a piebald. Well it was actually a Double-Dapple dachshunds which is indicative of irresponsible breeding. It turns out they get Kennel Puppies and sell them at the word of the breeders. I talked to the breeder of our puppy and it was obvious he was clueless. He didn't know about the genetic defects that can happen when breeding a dapple to a dapple.

If you are in the market for a puppy this is a great place to check out they have lots of puppies. All are health guaranteed, vaccination certificates so you don't have to worry about starting out with a sick puppy these are healthy.
Just be warned if you take a little one with you that you will probably be taking a puppy home as they are so sweet it is hard to walk away.

Thank you! We try very hard to provide quality, healthy puppies. A great deal of love and attention is given to each puppy everyday and we try so hard to put the right family with the right puppy. I'm glad you have had a good experience with us, as many other families have had. Please feel welcome to call or visit anytime, and of course bring your little bundle of sunshine with you! I love to see my babies grown.
