ok i just bought a puggle at the johnstown store. ive visited this store alot over the years but never dun business there altho alot of my fam has. They are totally in it for the money. No matter how much u love a pup there is no price break. i fell in luv wit my puggle visited her for a month then decided to buy her wouldnt even do a $20 discount. But i had to get her out of there. i fell in love with her. But i will never go in there again and put myself in that position. Rudest service i ever experienced yest. Not from the employee but from the a**hole owner. He foes not have anyones best intentions in mind in what hes doing. And shouldnt b making money off these poor pups. STOP SUPPORTING IT! DONT GIVE HIM OUR HARD EARNED MONEY! it wiont go to care for the pups he already has, just to get more. Its sad! HOW IS HE STILL IN BUSINESS? No GOOD COMES FROM EVIL! Good will prevail one day he will get what he deserves. To Be BROKE!

I did buy my puppy from Dishongs and would not give her up for the world! I got her about two years ago and although we are on our second surgery due to her being born with a disformed thigh bone. She is my best friend and I do not regret one bit that she is mine. My mother has also bought two dogs from them she lost her poodle of 15 years and then her pomeranian and was determined that she wasn't getting another dog. I took her there and she fell head over heels in love with her little girl and then one week later she went back and bought her brother. She has had no health problems with her dogs and they are very energetic and happy all the time. I took my little girl to the vet for her check and the vet told me that she had been mistreated...I know now that it was not the Dishong's that mistreated her it was the employee they had at that time that did. I mentioned earlier that she was diagnosed with a disformed thigh bone well that is one opinion however since then we have been to a specialist for her second surgery two weeks ago and he said that he believes it is just luxating patella's which is common in many breeds. I can't say that I would not buy another pet from them cause in my experience she is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Just wanted to add one more thing we have also purchased a sister for my little girl and got her from a reputable breeder and although she has no medical problems...let's just say that she is not the most normal dog and I was told that it was bad genetic breeding. I would not trade her for the world though either. I know when you want a puppy you want a healthy little girl or guy just like when you have a child but my daughter that was healthy has had to have three surgeries in her short life and to me this is just part of loving and caring for someone that you love...

I would not suggest to anyone to buy a puppy from here! it is horrible how they keep these dogs. when i walked in they acted like they cared by habing us sanatize our hands but then once i got to the area where the puppies were I knew it was messed up! they had big dogs in small cages, and many little dogs in swimming pools with newspaper and a cage around them. most of the dogs had a low amount of water and food(if any.) the lady did not even pay much attention to them at all. all of the dogs were crying. you could not even take your phone into the area so you could not take a picture.

my family ended up getting a great pyernese from them, we felt bad because it was such a big dog in such a small cage and it looked very sad. we took it to the vet and lisened to the contract. they said she was up to date on all shots but she wasn't. they also said that she"had a rabies shot, but she would need another one becausse it was not good once she left." (like that makes sense.) shortly after our dog starting limping and seemed sick and the vet did not know what was wrong. wwe could not get a hold of the owner and the employee started ignoring our calls. we ended up placing the dog where she would have more room to run and play. once we placed her, they imformed us she had a highly contagious mange.

before all the problems with them the employee and owners called us many times asking us to place a good review on them,because many people were trying to get them shut down.

many people say they get the dogs from the auction in ohio, which is horrible! however if you do give them the benifit of the doupt like i once did, its still horrible how people breed that many breeds of dogs(without adding in the poor conditions and lies) THIS IS A PUPPY MILL!

This place is definitely a puppy mill. I know this because I used to work there. This man proclaims that he breeds these puppies himself and then urges the employees to lie to the purchaser. The truth is he buys these puppies at a puppy auction in Ohio, then crates 6 or 7 in a small cage back to his locations. He stacks these crates on top of each other and sends 100 in one little minivan back to his stores. Then the puppies are put in cages and kept in cages their entire time they are there. He also refuses to take puppies to the vet when they are sick and dying. He medicates them himself with two medications which are contradictory to each other. This man is a criminal and should be arrested on cruelty to animal charges.

This place is a puppy mill and I know firsthand. I was employed there for a very short time. In the couple of months that I had worked there, 5 puppies died because of upper respiratory illnesses that could have been cured but the pups were not taken to the vet. The owner's solution was to give penicillin and genocin antibiotics together and that would get them better along with another antibiotic called dioxycycline. What this man didn't know was that giving these three antibiotics together, it actually weakened the strength of them and it didn't cure the sickness and then they died. He could have taken them to the vet and got them better the easy way. The puppies are supposedly vaccinated which most of the time they aren't. The workers are supposed to give these animals their shots and often they forget to do this, being that the workers are 16 to 18 years old. They can't keep track of this. They barely can keep track of their name. And he buys these puppies at auctions in Ohio from the Amish people and then trucks them into his location in a van full of cages with 5 or 6 pups to a cage. They come into the store full of feces and urine,covered in fleas. This is a crime to let this man operate this business. We need to boycott this business so that these poor puppies don't have to go through this. They are kept in little cages 24/7.

I purchased a Soft Coated Wheaten from Dishongs Pets in Johnstown PA. I was under the understanding that the puppy had been vaccinated they even gave me a booklet showing the vaccinations given and the dates. But much to my surprise the puppy came down with Kennel Cough, which according to the booklet the vaccination was suppose to be given for this. I had my dog around my friends dog my parents dog and at a pet store. Now I have to worry about who else may catch this Kennel Cough from my dog.
The day after purchasing this puppy she had started limping really bad, after about 4 days the limping diminished. My vet and I thinks it was from being left in a crate and not being exercised.

PLEASE DON'T BUY FROM DISHONG'S!!!!!!!! HE IS A PUPPY MILL!!!!!!!
I am doing all that I can so this don't happen again. Hopefully he will be shut down for good.

We purchased our puppy back in Dec at approximately 4 months old. Recently we took her to our vet to get checked out. SUPPOSEDLY, she was to be up to date on shots but was 10 weeks behind! They told us the only thing she need was a rabies vaccine (Ha !). The vet said we are lucky that she does not have any serious health issues. I would strongly recommend finding someplace else to buy your puppy.

I purchased my puppy at the North East location, It was Clean The puppies were well cared for , and healthy looking and i was very impressed. The Sales person helped me with more information in buying the correct puppy for my family and i was very happy she did so! They really know what they are talking about.!! We have sence bought another puppy from them and it is wonderful also! I have sent all of my frineds to them and will continue doing so! I can also say that they cant be in it just for the money as i would of purchased 2 puppies at the same time the first time i was in there and they strongly recomended not to as they would be harder to train! Im very happy I listened as the 2 pups I have now are very good in the house and very smart and love us first then eachother!
Thank you for the great pups! Ps.
I read the other comments on this page and it seems hard for me to belive that people had a hard time with this bussiness they were so helpful with me they answered all of my questions and even after the purchase ( i had to call them about getting the 2 puppies to like each other ) Also when i think of puppy mill puppies i think of bad breeding just for money?! the two pups i have gotten and the 5+ i have sent there to get puppies have been smart well tempered, even puppies
Go and check them out for your self they are great people
Thanks

I TOOK MINE TO MY VET WHO TRULY CARES ABOUT ANIMALS AND HOW THEY COME IN TO THE WORLD. THIS IS SUCH A SHAME THAT PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO DO THIS TO THESE PUPPIES AND GET A WAY WITH IT.

PROS: NONE TO MENTION
CONS: DOGS ARE NOT HEALTHY!

I will only buy my pets here - this is a family owned and operated business by people who really care about the pets - even after they are sold.

They know their animals, they are truthful about if a specific pet is a good choice for your family.

Their prices are very fair and by far cheaper then any other place.

They give very personal service to you the customer as well as to the animals staying with them.

The animals are very very well cared for while in their care.
This is not a "puppy pound" in any way !
The animals are kept clean and well cared for - they have toys to play with and volunteers ( as well as workers ) who come and play with them.

Several family members and friends of mine have had the same positive experiences with this business as I have.

A+ !!!!!!!!!

PROS: They are very knowledgeable and really care
CONS: none - A+ People A+ Business
