Do not buy from puppyspot. They were otherwise known as purebred breeders and if you look up all the wrong they have done, and the poor animals they have delivered to people it will make you run for the hills. Absolutely horrible company, they have no ethics, and the poor dogs they are touting as pure breeds are not. Our poor french bulldog developed demodex 2 months after we got him, seizures 2 months later. Then required two separate back surgeries over the course of two years.
Do not buy a dog from puppy spot formally know as purebreeders.com. They keep changing their name to hide from all their wrong doings and lawsuits!!! I bought a goldendoodle from them in september 2016 he came with a clean bill of health from a vet clinic signed by catherine lewis in north carolina. The golden doodle came with hookworm and giardia in his stools and an ear infection. The vet signed the papers that all was clear and he was healthy. The breeders must pay off this particular vet. He also has severe hip dysplasia needs major surgery for around $7000. I complained to puppy spot on countless occasions and they will not refund my money all they said was I can return him which of course I would never do! These people are crooks and they run puppy mills and they're disgusting people! Please to not buy any animal from them we need to shut them down. ! The amount of medical bills, heartache and stress this dog has put on our family because of this company is horrendous!
They are working with me to give me back some money towards the cost of the dog.

I was interested in a puppy and asked for the AKC number of the pup so I could do some research. Wanted to see both parents and the breeding facility where they were raised!
Instead of giving me the information I requested I got a hard sell..
"this puppy won't last long! You need to move fast to reserve her, etc? "
When I wanted the information listed above... Got an email saying I could have her at a reduced price! REALLY!!! This is highly suspect in my opinion! If you can not get the info listed above... don't buy!
Never got the info I was seeking!
With all the marketing they do on their website saying these are AKC registered puppies, why won't they give you the AKC number?
December 18, 2016 I purchased a long haired chihuahua from puppyspot.com as a christmas gift for my kids. He was falsely advertised as a long haired chihuahua, which parents weighed 4 and 5 pounds each. At his last vet check he weighed 5 pounds at 4 months of age. Dogs continue to grow up until a year and he was estimated by the vet to grow up to 12 pounds. I contacted Puppyspot.com regarding my concern on the double, maybe triple weight the vet had estimated. They told me I was feeding the puppy too much and that was why he was growing so much. I was appalled that they would say such a thing as if a chihuahua can grow into a great dane if you overfeed it? I submitted a claim with them regarding the false advertising to which they said they would contact the breeder and get more information regarding the puppies' parents. I was again surprised they had not gathered that information before they would list a dog for $2, 500 dollars and use what I thought were reputable breeders. The breeder responded that the dogs had grown a pound in the two months since I had purchased the dog. Considering the dogs were 4 and 5 pounds that is 25% of their weight increase in two months. Breeding practices recommend to bread a dog at least when they are a year to a year and half old. Dogs stop growing at a year. If they bred a dog before the dog was fully developed that is poor breeding practices. If the dog was weighed much before and the weight had not been updated before it was pregnant it is false advertising. I have never purchased a dog sight unseen however I felt that I could trust puppyspot. Boy was I wrong, I overpaid for a dog that is probably not worth more than $300, shipped a puppy from California to Texas and have spent several hundreds of dollars on vet bills for shots and ear mites since he arrived to me with ear mites. I continued to contact puppyspot as I wanted a $1, 500 refund and they responded that they could not guarantee the weight of their dogs. I could understand this if the weight variation was a pound or two however this is a significant weight difference. They said no, so I then proceeded to ask to return the dog and get a full refund including all of his shots and vet expenses. They again said no and have not resolved the issue of fraud and false advertising. I have never reported a business with the BBB however I feel grossly violated, I believe they are committing fraud and false advertising, I believe they are stealing money from customers such as myself who trusted them and believed they were buying from reputable and responsible breeders.
I'm sure there are customers out there who have had a great experience with puppyspot. com but from a breeder's perspective, this place is an absolute joke. They have a team of salespeople who collect everything but your social security number to "approve" you to be able to sell on their site. Pedigree documents, pictures of the living quarters, pictures of sire and dam, proof that they're being seen by a vet (All great things for buyers). But once they collect that information and you become an "approved breeder" you'll never hear from them again. Countless calls unreturned, just as many emails never acknowledged. Promises about waitlisted clients, and celebrities seeking your puppy are all lies. We listed 7 puppies from our litter, collectively they amassed over 20, 000 views.. Not one inquiry was received. On top of that I couldn't tell if the counts were even accurate because the would fluctuate up to 300 views up and down every day.
Buyers beware, there is over $2, 000 in markup by these guys, forcing honest breeders to take lower prices because they won't budge on their profit margins. I've read several horror stories - do your research before buying. Ill never do (This type of business) with anyone whose hand I can't shake.
The best part of working with these con artists was marking the puppies sold before they could, by doing my own marketing and making personal connections with my new owners.
Breeders this place is a scam to collect all you information and provide you no servoce whatsoever. Beware.

My mother purchased a German Rottweiler from this company-well a least they said it was a German Rottweiler. My children and I were waiting at her house for the arrival of the newest family member, he was flown in from Texas, and little did I know that once he arrived home I would spend the next 3 hours picking over 150+ fleas from this 8 week old baby. I worked at a vet office for 8 years and this puppy was one of the worst cases I have ever seen. Since he was too young to treat with any flea medication, I placed him in a sink of warm water so that the fleas would travel to his head, their were so many they were crawling in his eyes, ears, mouth, his skin looked like it was moving. His ears were full of ear mites and yeast; he has worms and bacteria in his stool. I wish I would have known prior to the purchase so I could have done some research on this company. I have no doubt this baby came from a puppy mill-do not order your next family member through this company.
I worked for this company and they sell puppies on their website that come from puppy mills and are mix breed dogs.

I wanted everyone to know that this company does not want to give information about the breeders and/or where the puppies are coming from. I also wanted to say that many people buy puppies/dogs from pet stores that come from puppy mills. This company does deal with kennels/puppy mills and you the consumer need to do your homework. If you decide to purchase a puppy from this site then please research everything carefully. All of your questions should be answered and no company should be tip toeing around your concerns. You are spending a lot of money and and you have the right to know what you are getting into.
Well I'm sure they do have puppies from mills on there site. If you look close at some of the picture...
My niece called this outfit today. I have owned and bred dogs for over 50 years and advised her to talk to the breeder directly before purchasing a dog via this website. They don't care what kind of home the dog is going to, they did not screen her at all, I think they are brokers for puppy mill puppies. There is no concern for where the dog is going, and they make it difficult to speak directly to the breeder. Think long and hard before you utilize these folks.
This puppy mill via the web makes me so sad and angry! When will people wake up and realize that for every healthy, cute little pup they 'order' there are two or three or more who were sick and ill treated and didn't 'make it'?? What if we started selling children like this??? Would that be tolerated?
There should be more at stake for both company and potential owner than just clicking a .com or dialing a 1-800 number to receive a LIVING CREATURE!
My dad purchased a miniature dachshund named George the week before Christmas from Buypuppiesdirect.com. My mom couldn’t be happier! We all love George. My mom changed his name to Teeco. He is a very well accepted new member of the family. I just want to say how wonderful the company is, they took care of everything. He is a healthy, happy boy and we LOVE him!
I too almost made the mistake of buying a puppy from this site and I'm glad I did some researching and realized that this is not the best way to adopt/buy a puppy. When I contacted the company with some questions about a particular breed I was interested in, they sent me an email with paperwork for credit card authorization! I hadn't even gotten my questions answered and they were already pressuring me to get my paperwork submitted to them. They have little invested in the welfare of the puppy and alot invested in making a profit. Even though the breeder was located in the same area as I was living in, they would not allow me to meet or see the puppies in person before commiting to buying one. It is very important that when you buy a puppy you are able to see the breeding facilities, the dame and the sire, and to see the litter. Anyone who denies you from being able to meet with the breeder brings up a red flag. I am fortunate now to have found a breeder who is honest and is not out to make a profit, and she is also against this site. She is looking out for the welfare of her pups and makes sure that potential puppy parents have the means (time and love) to provide for the puppy. She has also educated me about certification APR, AKC etc.. and have provided reading material. In my opinion, that is what a breeder should be willing to do, which is provide you with all the answers to the questions you have about the puppy you are purchasing. Buying a puppy is afterall an emotional, financial, and mental commitment and you deserve to be well-informed in all aspects. Buypuppiesdirect.com was pushy and tried to sell their puppies to whoever they can, above all else they are looking to make a profit and thus I agree with the first review that they are the ringleaders of puppymills. I was very apprehensive about buying a puppy from this site and Im glad that I trusted my instincts and declined to do business with them.
I was sent a vomiting and dehydrated dog that had parasites in her stool. Within 24 hours we were in the ER with her spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars. The customer service reps tried to blame me for neglecting her medical needs and refused to help us pay the bill.
