We were interested in a couple different breeds. We originally was interested in a Maltipoo and then started researching Cavapoos and decided we wanted to look at both breeds. Dave promptly answered all my questions either by text or phone call and when we made our appointment to see these cuties he had them ready to see when we arrived. We ended up buying a Cavapoo & named him Chester. He is such a cute, loveable playful dog. We would definitely recommend Dave @ Family Puppies if you are looking for a fur baby!!
We picked up a 9 month old Lhasa male on Tuesday afternoon 11/4/19. We had had another Lhasa male for 13 years. Now called Cody this little guy is just awesome. Sleeps all night in his crate, no whining or crying. Took him a day or so to start eating and drinking but that is not surprising considering the drastic change he had. He is very smart. Already doing his business outdoors, no "accidents" in the house at all. Very much a lap dog/ snuggle buddy. This morning he started fetching and returning the plush toy we bought him like he had been doing it his whole life. Very happy with Cody, his physical condition, his intelligence. He will be a very good dog for us for years. Thanks Dave for having such high quality dogs. Highly recommend this breeder.
I adopted my baby in April of 2019, and I could not be happier. He is absolutely the best pup I have ever had! We snuggle, play, and do absolutely everything together!
And when we are ready to get him another sibling, we will be coming back here 🙂
We traveled out to Family Puppies from Illinois to meet Dave and his puppies. Dave was very responsive via email when we first started our research months ahead. When we were ready to bring one home, we contracted Dave again to let him know. He was very flexible as our plans had changed a bit and we asked if we could come out earlier. When we arrived, he had 3 puppies out that had the features we were interested in, female, red, curly hair. All 3 looked very healthy and happy. We would have loved to have a look around and check out even all of the ones he had available, but I’m sure it’s hard to keep them all “presentable” all the time and also I imagine reduces the risk of people bringing in potential sources of infection/germs to the other pups.
Once we made our choice, Dave gave us the info we needed in shots and what she had already had. He gave us a bag of food that lasted us a couple days and he had supplies there that we could purchase if we hadn’t already such as an appropriate size crate.
Once home, we named her Daisy (previously Alaina) (Dave did tell us they reuse names so you might see some duplicates on his site, I’m sure they know the pups get renamed anyways), she took very well to her crate and slept in it all night letting us know once in the middle of the night that she had to go potty. She was almost immediately potty train..... A couple accidents, but a quick pick her up and take her outside and she learned within a week. We have had her for about a month and a half now and she’s only had a couple accidents in the house which were mostly us not doing our part and paying attention. Other than stealing a random shoe she hasn’t chewed a thing! She has found her voice though lol. She plays very well with other dogs and only time she nips, is if she’s playing. She is as sweet and lovable as can be. You took her to the vet on day two and they said she checked out great, no issues. He said we were very lucky and got a “gem”!
Thanks Dave! We will definitely be referring anyone looking for a new pup to add to their family!
We adopted our pooton 2 weeks ago. He is very smart, lovable and affectionate. We are truly in love with our little guy. Thank you David and will highly recommend Family Puppies.
We purchased our male Cockapoo on Saturday, April 27th and we are so in love with him. He has such a great personality is very social and is so happy. We couldn't be happier with our breeders, they are phenomenal!! What a great experience overall. We drove 4 1/2 hours to get our little bundle of joy and it was well worth the drive 🙂 Had all his first shots too! Beautiful well run operation. I highly recommend Family Puppies. Thanks Dave!!
We have had our puppy for a couple of months now and couldn’t be more thrilled. She’s very healthy, loving and the perfect addition to our family.
We purchase our Frenchie male in December and couldn’t be happier! He’s an adorable addition to our family! Our vet who has four of her own said he was quite healthy with beautiful markings and great shape head. We’ve been asked where we got him many times, highly recommend! Thanks Dave!
What a phenomenal breeder Family Puppies is! We adopted a havapoo in December and couldn’t ask for a sweeter, well socialized dog! The patience and understanding of all of my questions when adopting our new puppy was wonderful! There are a lot of breeders out there but Family Puppies is definitely a 5 star operation! Thanks for the great experience!
Dave would earn 10 stars for the healthy, beautiful, smart, socialized pup we received.
His property is clean and well kept. He dealt
straight up. Our vet was impressed our pup had the Bordatella along with all the other shots. Would recommend highly. Thanks Dave!
