Finding the perfect puppy is hard! Fortunately, we make it easy.

california puppies for sale

Finding a puppy online doesn’t have to be stressful—but with thousands of choices (many who are bad), that’s exactly how it feels. If you’re looking for an ethically and humanely raised puppy in California, you’re right where you need to be!

Did you know...

Dogs are more popular than ever before in history, and more people are loving life with our canine companions day by day. From classic breeds like the Golden Retriever to modern hybrids like the Labradoodle, we are truly living in peak puppy mania.

The problem is...

Finding a puppy is easier than ever. Finding a healthy, happy puppy is harder than ever. Puppy mills, backyard breeders and online con artists dupe families every day with mistreated, poorly bred and sickly dogs.

The truth is...

Weeding out these disreputable breeders is tough. Your average online search will turn up results both good and bad—but there’s often no way to tell the good breeders from the breeders who are only good at advertising.
