I visited this store yesterday. The dogs are extremely overpriced. They even offer a payment plan! They also advertise discounts for military population due to Wright Patterson AFB. I asked where they get their puppies and they say "local breeders." Most respectful breeders never let their puppies be sold in a pet store.

Recommendation for future pet owners: ask them to show you their documentation as to where the animals are coming from. (Don't be surprised if they refuse. If they do--RUN!!) They should hold a commercial license through Ohio Department of Agriculture.

The employees were actually quite helpful, even though what I've read from others sounded pretty bad. I adopted a blue merle Australian shepherd, and he is laying next to me right now. He is healthy and playful

I was in this store last weekend with my 2 teenaged daughters. They like to go in & play with the dogs. Usually I let each one pick a dog & we'll get one out at a time to play with. Well, we played with a golden retriever & my daughter

Do not buy a dog from this pet store or any pet store. Fetch is known to sell underage and sickly puppies. They say they purchase from breeders but they do not. They buy from puppy mills and people who dogs have litters. No breeder will

People obviously need to get their facts straight. These animals are not from puppy mills. I have bought 2 dogs from there and 2 bengal cats. They all came with papers and a gaurantee. They all were very healthy. You people have NO PROOF that any of these animals come from mills. I know for a FACT that most of them come from breeders because I KNOW THESE BREEDERS. Any one of these animals may become sick or have something wrong with them no matter where you get them at...even breeders. Would I suggest you buy a pet from any pet store...no. I'm not saying that all pet stores don't get their animals from mills, but Fetch does not. I know several breeders PERSONALLY who constantly deal with Fetch.

A word of advice for both apologists for Fetch and potential buyers: do not ask if the dog in question came from a puppy mill - there is a very good chance that nobody working at the store will know for sure. It is better to simply ask if

I keep hearing all the horror stories about pet stores buying from puppy mills...and do you think for one minute puppy mills will stop because you don't buy a puppy from a pet store...No they won't and where do you think all those dogs in shelters come from...I'd guess they came from a puppy mill...You can buy from a breeder that you know and still can have a dog with problems...

If you think a dog looked sick you should report it to the humane society and not be bullied into buying a sick animal...

Fetch must be doing something right because a lot of people buy puppies from them and they have stores everywhere...If you want a show dog then go and buy a show dog and pay show dog prices...

Pros: Clean, Happy Puppies, Friendly Staff

Cons: Pet Stores Get a Bad Rap

.

This store and all other mall pet stores buy their dogs from puppy mills. Puppy mills are places where dogs are kept in stacked, tiny wire cages, urinating and defecating on one another and forced to breed so they can sell the puppies to pet stores. The dogs never see sunlight, never touch the grass and never feel a loving touch from a human. When they are no longer able to breed, they are simply shot and their bodies burned.

The breeding stock, as they're called, have many genetic defects that are passed along to those cute puppies you see IN THIS STORE. Most of the puppies either already have diseases or are incubators of disease. Almost EVERY SINGLE ONE. Fetch and all mall pet stores are trying to sell you sick dogs for an unbelievable profit. It costs cents on the dollar to "raise" a puppy mill dog, these stores are selling you, the consumer, these sick puppies for sometimes thousands of dollars.
Ask to see the paperwork on where a dog in a puppy store comes from, if its from out of state, it's from a puppy mill. The staff everyone complains about here are trained to say that the puppies are from a local breeder. THEY ARE NOT.
They may also tell you that the dogs will be euthanized if they are not sold at the store. This is completely false. They will cut the price over and over again (while still turning a profit). If the dog still does not sell at the "reduced" price, they will give the dog away rather than euthanizing it or giving it back to the puppy mill. A puppy mill will not do business with a store that returns too many dogs.
Please, do not buy a dog from a puppy store. There are many dogs available for adoption in local shelters, no matter where you live. There are many, many purebred dogs in shelters as well. Visit petfinder to see a list of dogs in your local shelter.
You can also google prisoners of greed to find out exactly how puppy mills operate and to see photos as well. (sorry, no urls allowed in the post)
Please, please...don't buy from Fetch or any other mall pet store.

Do not buy your dog from here. We bought our dog from the beavercreek store. Our dog was in that small little cage for over 4 months. He was horribly overweight, his hair was just falling out. The employees were extremely rude and wasn't knowledgeable at all.

When we contacted the pet store, the asst. manager said that our vet did not know what they were talking about. Our new family member has a hard time walking and will take several months to recover any muscle tone he lost while being constantly trapped in this cage. He can't play with our son's due to his weakened condition. I would not recommend purchasing an animal from this store. It is illeagle to sell a dog with kennel cough but these people actually put it on the warranty form. We purchased our dog at "reduced price". They said that if we didn't purchase him, they would send him back to the breeder. No compassion, non caring people.

Full of wonderful and lively dogs, Paws Here is always a joy to walk into. With their several areas where you can take out a dog and play with it and friendly staff, Paws Here is a great place to take people of all ages. In addition to the dogs, they have other animals as well as plenty of toys, food and other necessities for your pets.
