B&C was pleasant experience well knowledgeable on the puppies they sell. The maltipoo I received has been one the smartest and easiest dogs I have ever had and she seems very healthy. A very welcome addition to our family.

My Family got an adorable cavapoo puppy, Blu from B & C Kennels this April. He is 4 months old now, and is the sweetest boy! There are so many dog breeders out there, but I’m so happy I found this one. It was hard trying to find a reliable breeder who had pups available because we’re going through the COVID-19 pandemic. However B&C kennels did an amazing job communicating with my family, and is doing a great job at following the safety guidelines. B&C is an amazing family owned breeder, that truly cares about their puppies. I highly recommend!!

***Hoping this review prevents anyone else from the heartache our family went through***
We bought the most adorable Boston Terrier puppy from B & C Kennels June 2018. Once home he had a chronic cough that was diagnosed as kennel cough from our Vet. Several 100 dollars were spent in Vet Bills because the cough persisted and we were told he had a chronic lung condition. Then, about 4 months in, we discovered he was deaf! The Vet confirmed this diagnosis. We called and talked to a mgr. and were told by Brian to bring him back for a full refund, but my kids were attached by then. Brian said they marked the parents with “do not breed”, but I’m seeing recent pics of Chocolate Boston Terriers that look just like ours! We decided to care for ours, even with all the issues knowing he wouldn’t have a normal life-span. Our Boston recently passed away 11/17/19 suddenly and very unexpectedly while sleeping. We had an autopsy performed and our Vet said his sudden death was due to his genetic anomalies. We have had 1 other dog that lived to age 17, so to lose our puppy at 1 year and 8 months was completely devastating to our family! I have never called these people back, nor do we want anything from them, but our point of sharing our story is so noone has to endure the heartache we did losing our sweet, sweet Cooper.

I bought my dog 3 years ago and me not writing a review yet has bothered me. Now my pup Elvis is healthy but it was a very expensive journey to get him that way. When I bought him he was 7 pounds and a few weeks went by and he was 5lbs, going to the bathroom and it being all blood, kennel cough, and a very high fever. The vet told me I should return him but I would never do that. I fought for him and luckily won but I have read other reviews and it seems to be a constant issue. He is still very skittish and runs when I try to pet him. I LOVE him to death but has some issues that my other dog, who I adopted at human society after Elvis, does not face. Just a warning, especially how expensive the dogs are at B & C are, to check elsewhere. I would never take back purchasing Elvis but I wish I did a little more research on the Kennel before my purchase. They also only gave me $200 about back when I do not even want to share how much money, antibiotics, and worrying it took to get my first puppy back to health.

I was very disappointed with B&C Kennels. I had heard about the kennel through family friends who purchased both of there dogs from there. I had called and spoke to a woman who took down my information, assured me there were two puppies still available and would be emailing me photos. After two days of not hearing from them I called again leaving a message which I included all my contact information to make sure it was correct. It has been several weeks and I have not heard anything. If all the puppies in the litter had been placed it would’ve been nice to know. The lack of response, communication, and professionalism was very discouraging. I guess I’m not getting my puppy from here.
