I would give this place 0 stars if it was an option. We recently purchased a puppy from this store which my husband and I fell in love with immediately. She was only 1.25 lbs. The "breeder" at the store said that she would get no larger than 5 lbs. As soon as I picked her up, I knew I wanted this dog. After a few days, the puppy was stumbling and walking around like she was drunk. When we called the "breeder" he told us to give her some honey as it could be her blood sugar. We did this for a while and the puppy seemed fine. We woke up last week to find our puppy laying lifeless on our bedroom floor leaking her own bodily fluids. The night before she was eating, drinking, running around (no signs of being sick). We rushed the dog to the pet hospital to find out she had roundworms and possibly parvo. If the dog was de-wormed the appropriate amount of times, why would she have an infestation of worms?? Probably because the "breeder" did not give the puppy the right medicine or just lied on the paperwork. Who knows? We had to leave the puppy at the hospital only to find out an hour later that she had passed away. We only had her for 3 weeks and probably gave her the best 3 weeks of her life. Not only did my husband and I spend $600 for this wonderful dog, we also had to pay over $1200 at the vet. The money is not even the issue - its the face this place is selling sick puppies. I would never buy from this so called "breeder" ever again and I urge you all to steer clear of this place.

I bought my 2 dogs here, the owners are great. the first pup i bought had no problems, the second pup had a cold which the owners covered with the health guarantee and gave me a check covering vet bills. I was very pleased, would buy again. store is always clean, pups always look happy and healthy.

okay so yeah puppies and kittens are cute. but you feel unwelcomed as soon as you walk in. you are not greeted at all and the store manager is huffing down your neck while his kids play with the puppies. he is not friendly at all. the kind that grunts at questions asked about the puppies. we asked to play with one, a collie. adorable, but was lifeless and practically dead. we asked why he was like that. and he said hes scared becuase he just came in. ha. right. i feel like he was either drugged to act that way or extreamly sick. we also asked to play with a german shepard. and he was like no, its only if your intrested. okay? how does he know weather or not we want to buy a puppy. poor customer service right there. and whats wrong with playing with them? i mean they need to socialize they are puppies for crying out loud. i do not reccomend buying puppies from him. i think ASPCA should be called and he should be shut down. im appalled.

Pros: cute animals

Cons: everything else

My fiance and I visited this store to look at the dogs with the intents of hopefully purchasing a new puppy soon. There was a yorkie mix there that I fell in love with and was very interested in buying. I asked the woman to hold the dog (I'm 24) and she said "we don't allow college students to hold the dogs because they just come to play with them and drop them". Just to throw this out there there, I graduated college two years ago. She then proceeded to allow a little girl, no older than FIVE or SIX to hold one of the puppies. These people should reevaluate their business ethics because I really WAS interested in buying a dog and WASN'T a college student which after reading these posts, there was another man who had the same incident happen. Also, after reading the reviews and horror stories, I'm glad I didn't purchase a dog here...keep up the awful work brookside, you'll be out of business soon I'm sure!

Should avoid at all costs...I got my puppy from here and he has had multiple problems (1000's of dollars)! And I know he is not the only sick pet that has come from them. I heard they get their puppy's from puppy mills. Also they have a policy that you are not allowed to take any pictures...what are they hiding?

i live in bloomsburg and Ive been going to this store and loved it ever since they opened! the puppies' pens (not cages) are always clean and the owners are always freindly.
i think it is crazy for people to say how these animals are sick, they are live animals just like people they can get sick! that is why they ask you to sanitize your hands between pups.
i bought my dog there he is AWESOME never had any problems when i bought him and we love to bring him in to visit
i also got my 2 cats here: no problems

whether you are looking to buy a puppy or not its always fun to visit and play with the pups and get info on the different breeds they have in.

ALSO this place is a small local family owned business not a corp chain like other petstores where they Dont care about the customers or the animals.

btw the puppies get their water from spickets so they dont have to worry about dirty water and it's always fresh!

I got a cute little kitten from this pet store she turned out to be verrrrry sick from the moment we got her and it only got worse. DO NOT buy from this pet store even if the prices are reasonable. We had to put poor yet sweet little Isabella down because she was in so much pain. She had weekly seizures and trouble breathing. We had her no more than 2 months.

Visited the Bloom store with the intent of purchasing a puppy. minimal cedar chips on cold floors for bedding, no fresh water, one pup looked underweight, seemed to have a hip problem. As far as "playing with" and "holding" the pets ( as the myspace website states)...the disinterested and rude clerk never got off of her stool, and never greeted us when we entered. (she was busier reading her paper than taking an interest in customers) when we asked to pick up a pup(as the signs state)we were rudely told...you can pick it up only if you're interested in buying, otherwise, NO. told her she was extremely rude to a customer and she claimed "college students are always dropping the dogs" (I'm well into my 50's and dont look like a college student!!) We were highly offended by her behavior and my daughter heard her making negative comments about us to another customer as we were leaving. She claimed to be the owner, but I'm sure that a business person, interested in making a sale would never behave in such a rude and disrespectful manner. Wouldn't purchase anything from there, ever!! Would love to make contact with the real owner!

They own three stores - Wilkes Barre (Which now seems to be closed), Hazleton and Bloomsburg - Do not buy from them. MANY reports of sick animals coming from these shops - some have even died and/or spread their illnesses to other animals.

I've been in here several times, although not lately - things may have changed, I'm not sure. If they have I'll re-review.

This shop could use some work. Their small critters are housed in aquariums (tsk, tsk!), and the selection of pet supplies leaves much to be desired.

The pets should be housed in separate areas. Instead, they're all housed in one large room. The puppies are kept in kennel-like runs where people can reach in (supervised, of course) and pet/pick up the puppies. (Hand sanitizer is offered and you must disinfect yourself between puppies.) The cats and rabbits are housed in cages about five feet away. On another wall are the small critters (rats, mice, hamsters, etc) and the fish, right next to each other. More or less, better housing should be offered for these guys.

If you're looking for the absolute basics, this isn't a half bad place to go. Although, with the dogs, you may be better off getting them straight from a breeder - same spiel as almost all pet stores.

Went into the store with my son, and I saw sick looking puppies with runny eyes, coughs, and foul-smelling loose stools. The poor dogs had dishes all filled with wood shavings mixed in with their food. I wouldn't buy a puppy from there - ever!

This place is your typical pet store that gets there stock from puppy mills. They will lie and tell you no, but I suggest if you care, you can try to track the breeder down. Bought a sick puppy from there. Spent lots of money at the vet trying to save his life.
If you want a purebred, please look for a reputable breeder. A reputable bredder is one that only does one or two breeds and will allow you to see their kennels.
Buyer beware.

This place sells puppys from puppy mills. I found this out after purchasing a puppy there and asked where she was from - they lied and said a breeder in PA. When I got her home and looked at the papers, they said "Freeman Raber" from OHIO was the breeder. Upon checking into this "breeder" I discovered that he was cited from the USDA for VIOLATIONS. My puppy has been sick for TWO MONTHS and it has cost me many sleepless nights and much expense. I called them right after I found out she was sick and told them so they wouldn't infect the other dogs because they had more from the same litter. I called again, and they said the timeframe had lapsed - even though I let them KNOW she was sick - I didn't file the papers in a timely manner. I explained that I have been taking care of this pup every day, cleaning messes, etc because of her parasites and urinary tract infections, going to work, running to the vets, etc and they could care less. I also posted on another site - asking others to come forward and so far, I have gotten 10 emails from others that got SICK PUPPIES from Brookside - STEER CLEAR!
