I was hesitant to ” buy” a dog. I really wanted to go to a rescue but we went to several places without luck ( mostly because of my son Allergies) we love Minnie ( was Alia) she is so healthy and smart and happy. Very grateful to find her at left paw. She loves looking out her giant window on her giant chair. I take 100 pictures a day ! All the ” bad things” you hear about ” pet stores” I did not find in our very good experience.

Me and my Wife got a Doodle from them. Very clean and nice place people. Grooming and boarding prices very good. I would recommend this place highly to anyone that is looking for a great dog. Thank you Left Paw.

We got our puppy Goose (originally Cooper) here over a month ago, and we are so in love with him. He is so wonderful, even with our two year old son. As a first time dog owner, we were nervous, but Goose was perfectly healthy and such a happy boy. Some of the staff members are more knowledgeable than others. I really appreciated Alexis who went over all of the paper work and care instructions. She was beyond helpful and extremely friendly. I had so many questions, but she was able to answer all of them. She actually called me two weeks after we had purchased Goose to check up on him and us, which I also appreciated. The puppies at the store all look happy and healthy, which is the most important thing.

6/16/22 Update: Brought Goose here for his for day camp session and he had a blast. I love the report card feature since I can read about and see pictures of his day. Of course Goose, being the social butterfly that he is, charmed everyone! Gabe is so friendly and you can tell he really cares about the dogs there. We also bring him here for his monthly bath and nail trimming and he comes out so soft and smelling amazing!

After driving also 1:30 hr I was told I could not see or purchase a dog because it was past their feeding time … like are you serious – to see a puppy and buy it I have to come between feeding … how is that a business practice or at least it should be communicated on your site… not cool at all – PS : I did an appointment

Response :

I did tell you I was going to be driving from CT to which it was going to take some time … I don’t control traffic …. You said you will be there that It wouldn’t be a problem … you never mentioned anything about feeding time or about needing an appointment to purchase a dog or a late/reschedule policy … on your site it says “ at this time the left paw is open only by appointment… “ to which I would interpret as : to visit the store you are only accepting appointment ( even though when I was there , customers walked in and were looking around the other puppies available , I suppose no appointment either ) if you have your policies I respect them but just communicate them better

I adopted a puppy yorkie male,this was my first pet. I kept him for 3 day it then i realised it was hard to take care of him and I felt I can’t do this. I also have 2 little kids so I decided to give him back. I paid them $ 2100 for this puppy and when I returned it they only gave me $1000 back. After returning him I realised that my kids were so much attached to him and they were sad so i went back to get him the next day. I told them i need the puppy back but they said they sold it to someone but the puppy was still there. They are very greedy people. Don’t buy from this place.

So, we got our first puppy at this place. He was so cute so we had to take him home. Right when we got home we realized that he had a bad cough which delayed all of his shots. Finally, when his cough went away and we completed all the shots we went back to The Left Paw because the owner had asked to see the dog again. When we asked if our dog could come in the response was not expected. In a mean tone they told us “IF HE HAS HAD ALL HIS SHOTS!” We are never buying a dog again and will always adopt.
