Had a very good experience working with Julie and Ella to pick out our F1b Mini Goldendoodle Milly! Julie was patient and friendly as we figured out which litter we were interested in and Ella was accomodating with pictures and video chats to help is feel good about our choice.

It was nice that they had all of the paperwork ready showing that she had her shots and microchip when we picked her up.

The only downside is they’re a bit of a haul from Des Moines – it was a 10 hour day to go get her and come back!

Julie has been really wonderful to work with. She was very communicative and knowledgeable about the various doodle breeds. Devin, at Little Paws Unleashed, has been so helpful with supplying us with great pet care products. Highly recommend Little Paws of Iowa!



We had a great experience with Little Paws of Iowa and would highly recommend them!!!

One thing that I was very impressed by was how strongly they stood by their health guarantee. Lucy needed a minor surgery on two of her baby teeth and Little Paws of Iowa reimbursed me for it in less than 24 hours after submitting the receipt. Obviously dogs from any breeder can have minor issues they are born with but the fact they were so responsive and easy to work with made things super easy and stress free.

The entire rest of the experience getting Lucy was wonderful too.

A big high five from Lucy to Little Paws of Iowa!!!



I am definitely a customer or I wouldn’t have posted a review. I wasn’t completely satisfied with the purchase (as there are some issues with the puppy) or the lack of response.
