Sick puppy

Puppy came sick with puppy allergies. Now is on two different medications and has to take special baths

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Afroditi - Before your puppy traveled home to you, she underwent our mandated nose-to-tail health examination performed by a licensed veterinarian, which indicated she may have some environmental allergies. Because we value transparency, we shared these findings with you before she traveled home, and gave you the option of waiting to see if her allergies cleared up, choosing a different puppy, cancelling her arrival and receiving a full refund, or continuing with her scheduled arrival with the possibility of treating her allergies, to which you chose the latter. We were very surprised to receive your review, as your puppies second mandated exam performed by a licensed veterinarian of your choice shortly after she arrived home did not indicate any issues, including any allergies, nor did you mention any issues during our customary follow up communications around the same time. As soon as we received your review, a member of our dedicated Health team was quick to reach out, learn more, and see how we could help. We're happy to report that your puppy is feeling better and thriving in her new home. You should never forget that PuppySpot is a community and our team is here for you just as much as we were before your puppy joined your family, so you should never hesitate to reach out if there's anything you ever need.

Happily Ever After!

I am more than happy with my new fur baby from Puppyspot. I had so many questions and fears about the entire process especially since you hear of so many scams but the representatives at Puppy spot alleviated all of my fears. From the deposit and payment to the travel plans and the health guarantee. My baby arrived happy, healthy,socialized and loving! Baby Angel has been the best addition ever! She's super fun and playful, interacts so well with the boys and is sweet as candy! She gives the best Puppy kisses! We will certainly welcome another fur baby in the future from Puppyspot!

Puppyspot is great!!!

Puppy spot was great from the beginning of the process until the very end. We dealt with numerous people and each one was extremely friendly and very accommodating. Our jasper has been such a pleasure we would definitely use puppy spot again.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Couldn't ask for a better way to adopt an excellent pet!

The co-ordination of purchase, travel and vet exams was excellent, online consultation was also great, only thing keeping my experience with PuppySpot being 5 stars was that the travel into SMF was made on a weekend when the cargo pickup was closed and pickup was at the main terminal baggage claim which made it difficult to receive due to TSA parking restrictions...this was not of course something that PuppySpot had a lot of control over! The end product, Lincoln has been an endless "puppy" experience....hope he outgrows it soon! :-)

Great Experience overall, would recommend to others

You provided a terrific service in connecting high quality breeders and potential clients. The information and support you provide are very thorough. I am super happy with my Shorkie Puppy Remmy who is a healthy and happy little guy! Your may want to consider having the puppy concierge be the ongoing contact person for each client as receiving messages from separate departments (travel, vs. other departments/reps) and always talking to a different person can get confusing. But overall the people were well-trained and knowledgeable.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Tracey - Thanks very much for your feedback and nice note about your experience with our team. PuppySpot is comprised of several different teams, from screening and vetting our breeder community, to helping match prospective puppy parents with their newest furry family members, to reviewing health documentation, to coordinating/booking travel and providing lifetime support and guidance. Each of these fields requires a great deal of detail and expertise, of which those who make up each team are trained, educated and in some cases certified to manage, in an effort to provide our customers with the best care and expertise possible. All that said,†we're thrilled to hear Remmy is thriving in his forever home and look forward to continuing our relationship with you as you navigate your puppy parent journey!

Excellent customer service

Toni did a wondering job answering my questions and lining up our Boston terrier. The whole experience was flawless and we are so happy to have our new addition to the family.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Luna is happy and healthy and smart as a whip!

Overall I am so pleased with the puppy I found on the site and literally how easy the entire process was. She has been home with us for a good 3 weeks and honestly this pup is just amazing. Great quality breeders, who work in advance to properly prepare your puppy for his/her new home.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Sonia -†Thanks so much for the kind note. One of the amazing things our national network of screened and vetted breeders provides our customers is the peace of mind that they can find the right puppy for their family no matter whether that puppy lives across town or across the country and from a trusted, responsible source. PuppySpot takes care of all of the details, so you can focus on what really matters - preparing your home for your new best friend. As you know, our mission is to make lives better by placing healthy puppies into happy homes, and we are glad to hear your puppy is doing so well.

Amalia D.
California | Breed: Beagle

the worst I believe someone made a mistake and try to hide it it was fraud!

the worst, I paid almost $2000 dollars for a puppy in their internet and got another very different dog...won't bother you with all the other unbelievable experiences.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Amalia - In the same vein as the conversations we have had with your son, we want to - again - assure you that you received the puppy you reserved and paid for. As soon as you initially voiced concern over the identity of your puppy, we quickly contacted your breeder who, along with our expert team, confirmed you received the right puppy. We're disappointed to learn you're still unhappy with your experience despite numerous team members' attempts to address your concerns and we'd still very much like to speak with you, as our team has spoken with your son, but have not been able to connect with you. Regardless, please know we are hear for you anytime, so please feel free to contact us with any further questions that may arise.

I wanted a black toy poodle about 9 lbs for my last dog. I got a black puppy that turned silver and will probably be about 5 lbs. The puppy seemed like he was from a puppymill. He didn't have normal behavior. He is getting better. Pamela

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Pamela - PuppySpot does not, and will not ever work with puppy mills and has a zero-tolerance policy for substandard breeding practices of any kind. In addition to our comprehensive proprietary screening process that all members of our breeder community must pass (which results in acceptance of fewer than 10% of applicants), we stay in regular contact with our breeder community and have members of our Breeder Compliance team in the field every week of the year. We understand that these comments stemmed from some behavioral challenges you were experiencing when your puppy arrived home, but with ongoing training and a bit of patience, your puppy has been thriving in his new home, which is a priority for us. While we cannot guarantee the size, weight or even adult coat color of any of our puppies, as they are living, breathing beings, each with different genetic makeup, we go above and beyond to ensure they arrive to their forever homes healthy and happy, which is what we understand is just how your puppy arrived. That said, we want to make sure you're happy, too, and to that end, a member of our team has been trying to get in touch with you to learn more, see how we can help and reiterate that we are committed to being here as a source of support and guidance as you navigate your puppy parent journey.

They really worked with me to get my new puppy home at the last minute, as my original pick did not pass her physical, & I picked a new one the same day. Th new puppy came the day after the original puppy was supposed to come, & they really worked their tails off to get her on a flight to come home to me. I love PuppySpot, you guys rock.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Vicki - As you noted, our extensive health protocols are the industry's best, culminating with a requirement that your puppy pass our proprietary nose-to-tail health exam, administered by a licensed veterinarian, before we would allow her to travel. In the spirit of transparency, we always disclose any findings from this initial exam with prospective puppy parents and give them the opportunity to choose a new puppy, as we did with you. The health of your puppy is our primary concern which is why, in addition to all that we did to try to make sure your new puppy was happy and healthy when she arrived, we also provide a comprehensive health guarantee and support you throughout your puppy parent journey. We really mean it when we tell you our relationship with you begins, it does not end, when you find your puppy on PuppySpot, so please let us know if there's anything more we can ever do to be helpful!
