I hope you are well!

I just wanted to send you a quick update on my teacup yorkie Joey (aka Harley to you guys!).  I purchased Joey from you two years ago this May.

Joey is now 3 years old  and is just as full of life as he was when you had him!  He is healthy (2.9 pounds, happy and such a joy to have!  He still has his “I’m the boss” attitude.

To Whom it May Concern :

Our family purchased a puppy from Shaggy Dog in January of 2012. We had lost our Shih Tzu of 14 years about three weeks before Christmas. The holiday season was very rough as the void in our house was tremendous. As the weeks went by, we realized that the emptiness was more than just the love we had for our dog, but also the enjoyment we had giving that love and time to our dog.

We decided that it would be impossible to function any longer without having a furry member of the family. We started researching, calling, and browsing for our next dog. The conclusion we came to was we would like another Shih Tzu, or in a perfect world, a Shih Tzu/Bichon Mix or “Teddy Bear” dog.  We called breeders, pet stores, and shelters. We could not find anything close to what we wanted. One Saturday, we called a pet store that told us that they did not sell puppies but there was a store in Utica that did sell puppies called Shaggy Dog.

We looked up the store’s phone number online and called. A very friendly voice answered and answered all of our questions, and even told us they had two Teddy Bear Puppies!!! We drove down from where we live, an hour away, the same day and looked around . We found the store to be incredibly clean and full of happy, adorable puppies. As excited as we were, being naturally cynical, we asked TONS of questions and actually did not make a purchase that day. We did not buy our past dogs from a retail store so I was very apprehensive to do so. All the employees answered all the questions they could and also gave us an email so that we could reach the owner if we had any more questions. The owner personally called me and gave us all the information we were looking for.

The next day we drove back down and purchased our puppy. We named him Peanut and he is the life of our house. He still has his “puppy” days but overall is a great dog. I really feel like the foundation of training that the Shaggy Dog gave him while he lived with them, helped him transition really well to our home.

We can’t even begin to state out much joy our Peanut gives us everyday. I am so thankful for Shaggy Dog because they did not just “sell us a puppy” but they provided us the newest member of our family. I hope anyone reading this considers letting Shaggy Dog provide them with their next pet. It is a great establishment and we will probably never get another pet from anywhere else.

Thank you Donna, Doris, and Debbie for answering all our questions and still providing us with loving support for our puppy :)

I puschased a Shihpookie pup from you on 10-10-09. We named him Cooper. He is the best pup I have ever owned. I am thinking of purchasing a companion for him and am interested in a male pappilon puppy. Do you ever get that breed of dog in? If you do, is there anyway that you could/would let me know. I would appreciate any help you can be. Thank you

I have gotten 3 fur babies from Shaggy Dog Puppies and could not say enough wonderful things about Donna and her staff.
We got our first Yorkie, Snickers, in July of 2005. I had stopped by the store to pick up some treats in April 2006 and ended up falling in love with and bringing home Yorkie #2, Bailey.
My Husband had a job transfer that reloacted us to Cincinnati, Ohio. We came back to the area for a friend’s wedding in October 2007 and fell in love with Sophie the Yorkie Poo.
All of our pups are in good health and have added so much to our lives and hearts. Bailey, the smallest of the pack, actually stayed with Donna for a while when he first came to the store since he was so small. Her Sister now has his Dad, Vinnie. It really is a family affair!
Shaggy Dog Puppies is the cleanest and friendliest store that I have ever been to. I hesitate telling people that I got my babies from a “pet store” due to the stigma, but Shaggy Dog is so much more.
Thank goodness that we no longer live in the area or we would have even more of a housefull!
Thank you Donna and the girls in the shop for taking such good care of all the future loves of our lives.

I have attached some photos for you. Bailey is the first one. He is one of Vinnie’s kids. Then there’s Sophie our little Yorkie Poo and Snickers, the little General. Snickers loves climbing up on my pillows after I wake up to get a little extra sleep.
I have some additional photos that I can send you that are downloaded on my desktop. We don’t have as many on the laptop.
I would love it if you would be able to send us a picture of Vinnie. Whenever we bring Bailey back to visit, everyone always says that they look alike.
