Whether a pet shop puppy is from a puppy mill or a back yard breeder, it is not safe. Sure you may have been lucky enough to get a healthy animal, and your animal may have been lucky enough to get a loving home, but that does not mean that your animal wasn't a product of irresponsible breeding. You should always see the place where they puppy was born, you should at least see the puppies mother. You should have references, and should have contacted the puppies' breeder and made sure that they have thorough knowledge about breeding, which means you would have to get some knowledge on it yourself so that you know when the wool is being pulled over your eyes. Sure your puppy may be great, but do you really want to fund the hell it's mother's going through bc she's forced to have litter after litter for greed? I'd like to post links, but the review page won't let me do it, however I'm sure you can do the same quick google searches I've done, and find all of this information out for yourself.

i really like this shop. they care about the animals, let you pick them up and play with them. I spent an hour in the store and the owners were so nice and patient with me while i picked up and played with the puppies. I bought a kitten from this store 14 years ago and he is still alive and very healthy so that's proof positive that they have healthy pets. I love that they get their pets from local homes and do not take pets from the pound. I'll definitely get my next puppy from here

I wouldn't recommend buying a kitten from this pet shop. I bought a kitten and it had fleas, ear mites and now has blood in her stool. So, not only did I pay $50 for the kitten but I paid $50 for Frontline, $15 for ear mite medication and now a vet bill. I could have went out back my house and got a cat that has all these issues!

Bought my puppy there by advice from many others who purchased puppies there. Maybe not the most modern place and may have a pet smell to it but IT IS a Pet Shop. My Pup is great and is about 9 months old now and has had no health issues. The staff is very informative and they do not try to sell just to sell you something, they seem to really care. I understand this family business started in 1957 and is still going even with every store you go to now sells pet supplies. I will continue to support Gettys Pet Shop because we need these family shops to continue here in America.

This places depends on dog sales just to stay in business. The merchandise strongly points to that. You must have to be a backyard breeder for them to buy your puppies. Mutt mixes is all they sell , with a once in awhile so called pure breed thrown in! Have heard employees lie to people just for the sake of selling a puppy. Two good plus and only two---cheap mice and crickets. Not very clean walls and floors in animal room and animal tanks always look like they never get scrubbed. Just looks like they throw in clean bedding, glass always dirty! Never anything new in stock, always being told we can order that. If you can then carry it! Why should I have to wait! This store needs to update itself.

I know the store may have it's ups and downs but what place doesn't. Almost 4 years ago, I bought a dog from there and to this day she is the best dog I ever had. Just bescause the place may look alittle run down it's been there for YEARS.
