I can’t say enough good things about Lally’s. We picked up our golden two weeks ago and the whole experience was great. She had all of his paperwork ready for us, explained everything to us, some blankets for the car and even his favorite dog toy. Since bringing him home she has checked in to see if we needed anything and to see how he is doing. She has been so helpful and very sweet. Highly recommend!! We love our sweet boy

Our dog is going to be a year soon and she is the most incredible addition to our family. Smart, curious, clean and kind – we might be biased but she has to be the friendliest shiba in Brooklyn (to people and dogs alike). We are so grateful that the Eberly family let us meet her and her parents at 5 weeks to pick her out of the litter. But what we give the Eberlys the most credit for is that she absolutely loves children. From the day she came home, she always wanted to greet children and was so gentle. We know it’s due to the fact that they socialized her so young with their daughter/grand daughter. Thank you for raising a wonderful, healthy, lovely dog.

Picked up our Shiba puppy (Milo) from Lallys a few weeks ago and I cannot say enough about how great of an experience the whole process was and how happy we are with Milo. The Eberly family are great ppl who clearly care about their animals. Sarah was extremely responsive from start to finish and has continued to follow up to see how Milo is adjusting to his new home.

I could go on and on but if you’re in the market for a Shiba puppy I can’t imagine a better place to go.

I hate leaving poor reviews but I feel obligated to let others know about our poor experience. We put a deposit down on a puppy at 5 weeks of age. Unfortunately, due to some unforeseen circumstances we decided it was not in the best interest of the dog to bring the puppy home. You would THINK this would be a decision any reputable breeder would understand. We kindly asked for our deposit back. We were told deposits were not refundable after the puppy turned 5 weeks yet there was NO mention of this on our deposit receipt nor stated on the company facebook page or ANYWHERE online. If this was a policy that the breeder had intended to enforce, I believe they should OPENLY convey that to potential puppy owners upfront. So buyer beware.


Say Hello

There are a lot of positive reviews from people who’ve gotten healthy dogs from them, but that was not our experience.

I think they run a puppy mill. They breed the dogs constantly. For example, Blaze has had 2 litters in the last year. Most breeders have waiting lists 7-15 months long, but Lally’s always have litters available. Once a litter has gone off to their new homes, they take the photos down from Facebook. I remember seeing Blaze listed on at least 2 litters this year, maybe even 3.

They don’t look into the people trying to buy their puppies— they don’t ask about what your home situation is like, if you have a fenced yard, how many hours a day you’re away for work, what other pets you have, whether you have kids, etc. If you hand them the money, they’ll hand you a puppy.

The female dogs don’t live with them, which we didn’t know up front. When our litter was available, we asked if we could come meet the puppies to pick ours out. They told us no, that the females live with “family friends,” and instead they had us pick from photos. We never got to meet her or see her temperament.

We got our puppy when they said she was 8 weeks old. We took her to the vet the next day. She was very small and underweight for her age, and the vet kept asking if I was absolutely sure she was eight weeks old. She came to us with goopy eyes due to her eyelashes being turned downward, as well as a vaginal infection that was oozing green discharge. During the few months we had her, she had 3 urinary tract infections and could not hold her urine at all. Her temperament was not typical of a golden retriever, either. She wasn’t intelligent, she couldn’t retain any of her training, and she was absolutely crazy hyper. We ultimately returned her for a refund. Very sad that our son had to give away his dog!



Well, the woman that runs the kennel was very awkward to speak to. We did buy a puppy because we felt we were fine with the breed, the puppy seemed to listen and was also very cute and had wonderful colorings. When we picked the dog up, the daughter handled our transaction. She was nice and wasn’t at all awkward.

There are no prices listed and expect to give your deposit without giving any information about the particular dog you’re looking at. I also can’t say I was impressed at all with the cleanliness of the place. It was absolutely filthy with a very strong urine odor.

The breeder did not seem to spend a lot of time with our puppy. She was almost 11 weeks when we got her and seems to be having issues with her behavior. I do not feel there was any potty training nor was there any leash training. This is my personal experience with this breeder. Your experience may vary. Maybe we got a lemon.
