All About Puppies..well,it's a great place.Dunno why people are hating on it,definitely recommend it.They receive proper and much required vet care to maintain their health.Their papers aren't "lost",they are always there,so idk what you guys are talking about from a year ago.I bought my puppy 2 years ago but that was from another All About Puppies,the 1 in Largo.Idk why All About Puppies is rated 2.7 stars while Petland is rated 3.7,even though Petland is actually the 1 selling endless amounts of puppies from puppy mills.The last time I visited Petland,some of the puppies there looked sick in their eyes,it was sad to even look at the 1s that were unfortunately sick.While only some of the lucky puppies weren't sick,they were still all from puppy mills.Petland says that they "don't support puppy mills" and all that.And you people are saying that All About Puppies are supporting puppy mills,but not Petland? You guys who say that are...well,no offense,but stupid.Unaware,there,that's the word,unaware.And I'm not unaware of all of the sick puppy mills out there.The puppies ARE NOT bad quality.Jeez people,start faving the comments that are all like "PUPPIES HERE AT ALL ABOUT PUPPIES ARE VERY VERY BAD QUALITY!!!" because that's FALSE.And I'm actually the owner of an All About Puppies puppy (or dog now,lol) like I said before.Oh and the only reason puppies get sick there is because they're in open crates,in which case a sickness can easily spread from 1 puppy to another.Guys,even the most reputable pet shop,and I can assure you this,can't stop any puppy from getting sick.Puppies there are at open crates,while Petland puppies are at small enclosed windows,the luckier larger puppies are in larger windows (because they're larger).Btw @mono20 they DO NOT beat the puppies there,nice try.And at @Christina W. A puppy mill in MO? Are you sure you're not talking about Petland or some other place?
I bought the cutest puppy there a week ago. After I bought him, learned he was from a puppy mill in MO. The midwest doesn't have laws against puppy mills. Took him to the vet in the first 4 days and he just had an ear infection. Got ear drops and brought him home. A week later, he had double lung pneumonia and died. He started coughing at 10 AM in the morning and was dead by evening. Devastating. Still crying. My 7 year old is still crying. So sad. Vet said that the puppy mill over-vaccinates them which suppressed his immune system. Then the puppies are stressed by being shipped across country (to Florida). Then he was introduced to a slew of viruses at the puppy shop. The incubation period is 3 weeks, so don't think that you are out of the woods til a month out of the store. He was doing well. Eating, playing, barking at his reflection and just died. I read similar stories on this website. Puppy mills have poor health conditions. Puppies should be isolated from other dogs after vaccinations to prevent getting viruses. Viruses suppress the immune system and make the vulnerable to viruses which live in the puppy store and in their vents. I loved the dog. I am just crushed. Won't buy another dog from a puppy store. Only a breeder from now on. Vet told me breeders are the only way to go.
Their dogs do come from puppy mills, I have proof. I bought a dog (couldn't read the info on the breeder as they "forgot" to fill some in). I called because by law they have to tell you. My dog came from Nick Menne in Lime Springs Iowa (just google it). After seeing pics and people trying to shut it down I realized this place sells PUPPY MILL PUPPIES. It was my own fault for not checking first and I will NOT make that mistake again. I love our Lexi but she has had many health problems and now I know why. Also the dogs are APR certified and after looking more into that I realized it is a certification most Puppy Mills use. They claim they "lost" the dogs papers but hey are "sure" it's a pure-breed. Basically its a farce.
My family and I love our English Bulldog we purchased from All About Puppies 6 months ago. Tank is a great dog and we will recommend this store to any of our friends who are looking for a dog.
Great Experience!! – I am happy to say that my Yorkshire Terrier "Stella" is a happy, healthy 2 year old dog that I purchased from All About Puppies on Dale Mabry. I am very satisfied with my purchase and have recommended the store to several of my friends who are looking for a dog. Thank you All About Puppies for the wonderful addition to our family!!
Cute Puppies - VERY BAD QUALITY! – I got a puppy 2 years ago from the Tampa location. A cute little male Chihuahua. He was sick with an upper respiratory infection so I took him to their prescribed vet and no problem. However, he has brain damage. I had him checked out by my own trusted vet and spent the money on x-rays of his skull since I suspected something was wrong. He wasn't acting like a normal puppy. The owner refused to assist with payment at the prescribed vet. My vet informed me that he was hit so hard in the head that he was concussed. He has fractures on his tiny skull all over. He's such a dear boy, but he will never be the same. He is 2 now and never learned to be toilet trained. He wears a diaper always. I must also mention that he cost $1,090. I fear that the owner did something to this dog. BE WARNED!
do not buy from a pet store. – Do not buy a dog from a petstore. These puppies come from puppy mills. The employees here may say that these dogs are high quality and come from small, certified breeders but in reality, they come from these horrific breeding facilities. The mothers of these dogs spend their lives in cages being bred over and over again which means their offspring are more prone to sickness and disease. Maybe thats why they put a one year warrenty on the puppies they sell? Anyone who cares about their animals would NEVER put a warrenty on a real, living animal. They are not replaceable.
The insane prices for these dogs is rediculous too. Adopt from a shelter or humane society. If you buy a puppy from here you obvously have not done your research. Go to the ASPCA and look up pet stores and they will bring you directly to a puppy mill information page. Regardless of what the owner or employees say, they get their puppies from puppy mills. Adopt your next dog because those are the ones who need a loving home.
DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE – My family and I purchase a new addition to our home. We got the cutest american bulldog. His name is Bolt. We got him on a Saturday, took him to the vet; like we were told to do at time of purchase; this keeps our warrenty in tack and only if you use the vets they list. We went to Sana Cruz (great clinic) on The following Wed or Thurs. and the vet said he had an upper respiratory infection and it's covered under your warrent with All About Puppies. The vet gave us the medicine and we made another appt. to see the vet for his 2nd set of shots the following week. The vet then told us he was worse and need more medicine. We have been giving him his medicine like the vet said and tonight the dog threw up all over and could barely breath. So we called the clinic and they told us to bring him in. Once we got there, they said if we didn't he would be dead by the morning. They new we purchased him form the pet store and gave us the number to call to tell them we were there and find out how much they would cover because the puppy is still under warrenty. The owner REGINA GALLOWAY ( a real piece of you know what) told my husband at first "they would pay up to the purchased price of the dog." Then told my wife "I'm not paying for anything, you should've brought him in during normal business hours." My wife told her the dog would've died if we waited. She said "You need to take him during normal business hours. My wife screamed and cursed her out. Now we are calling an attorney and contacting the local news channels to expose them. DON'T BUY A PUPPY FROM THESE PEOPLE!
worse environment to work! – i worked for this store at this location in particular, and i tell you that no one really last it there as long as i did, i worked in two different positions there. well they expect alot from workers but to little in return, no raises at all no matter how outstanding your performance is, and no benefits of any kind; and me, that always spoke out loud respectfully, well they took it as me bitching and complaining to much, not caring for the employee concern or issue, and believe me everyday there was an issue and they pretty much wanted me to kiss ass all the time......... that is just one of the things there is too much to say about working there..... And other thing that buyers should know they dont care about the puppies a bit all the want is money money money $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, they dont care that the lady that has been working there for 10yrs beat up on the puppies, handles them really rough...... they just dont care at all.......................... Tampa location....... BUT AGAIN SAME OWNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL THE WANT IS $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
