My puppy purchase experience with Puppies-4u was better than I ever could have imagined.  Gloria was so easy to work with, so very kind, knowledgeable and always available to answer the questions  I had regarding the puppy I wanted, and about the puppy adoption process.  From start to finish it was a pleasure working with Gloria.  My puppy from  Puppies-4u  arrived on time and was beyond my expectation.  He was very well adjusted, calm, healthy, sweet and bright eyed.  He arrived at my door via  Williams Puppy  Transport clean, happy  and on schedule.  It was fun tracking his cross country trek.  To summarize my experience, I would not hesitate for a moment purchasing a puppy from Puppies-4u.  Even my vet commented that my Puppies-4u pal was a healthy, 7C"nice" puppy.  Thank you Gloria and Puppies-4u.

GET YOUR PUPPY HERE ....PLEASE!!!  I will be recommending Gloria to everyone!  I am thankful I found her..... just wish I had found her sooner! Oh My Goodness!!!! We just picked up our new puppy from Gloria & Alvin.  The puppy is just PERFECT in every way.  We got the beautiful little Shipoo, Precious...... and she is just that, precious!  We adore her already!  She is beautiful & her personality is just the sweetest!  We are all smitten with her!  She is so calm & friendly!  She looks so heathy - her coat is clean & soft!  You can tell she has been very well cared for.   Now, let's talk about Gloria & her husband Alvin....... these two are also just precious!  I only met Alvin today but he was so kind & sweet & genuine........ you could just see it in his eyes & the way he talked.  Gloria is a complete sweetheart!  I have spent so much time talking with her.  I called her several times with questions..... she always answered.  She never rushed our conversation - she was so kind & patient with me & all of my questions. She shared her knowledge about the puppies with me.  She made sure that I knew - I was welcome to call her at anytime.  I took full advantage of that.  I have called many times.  We even spent time talking About life & our Faith.  She is a wonderful lady!!! The best choice we could have made ..... choosing to get our puppy from Gloria!  I feel I not only gained a puppy but a new friend!

Gloria is just a sweet lady and she answered all my inquiries in a timely manner. I could tell she genuinely cared for her dogs as family members, and i recieve a lot of ongoing support after we have Frosty (Totoro ) . We are so happy with our dog. I could write a novel about our experienced with gloria and about our dog, but for sure if you deal with gloria and has her dog we pretty much have the same experience. Thank you so much for this experience you gave us, as this is our first dog.

The day before Christmas we were so blessed to have welcomed our new family member. My kids cried in joy as meeting Sugar Snowball (as they named her). She is such a great girl with excellent manners! She has adjusted very easily in our home. She loves listening to classical music to take her naps after she chases the leaves and runs around our garden! She is very curious and loves playing with the kids and her toys! Can’t think our lives without her!

I'd definitely purchase from them again and NO ONE ELSE. Gloria was so friendly and easy to work with. She almost felt like family. Kept me completely updated every step of the way and coming all the way from California, I felt so comfortable. I have and would recommend Puppies-4u to anyone. Thank you Gloria & Alvin for taking care of the wonderful addition to our family.

Amazing transition! I reached out to Gloria about purchasing Mars (formerly Harley) and she was extremely patient and kind throughout the entire process. He was delivered directly to my front door and I was able to track his travel via Life360 App. I was nervous as this was my first purchase online but Mars is already started potty training with Gloria and he is so calm. He feels like he was already apart of our family. Thank you so much for being a trusted online service provider. Highly Recommended 10/10 service

We adopted our handsome, lovable Shih poo named Garvey at 8 weeks old. We fell in love with him through his pictures online and couldn't wait to make him a part of our family. We were skeptical about adopting online, especially living as far as Massachusetts but we were quickly put at ease once we contacted Gloria. She responded quickly to all emails within mintues and was always available to answer any questions regarding her puppies. We made our deposit on a Monday and we received our puppy at our door on Sunday from Sam at William's Puppy Carrier Service. We were able to track our pup's journey using the GPS tracking app, Life360. He arrived to us happy and clean with no health issues. He was already crate trained, which made it way easier to follow his puppy sleep schedule. We could not have asked for a better experience adopting from an online breeder. Thank you Gloria for truly caring for your puppies and providing us with our adorable new family member!

We picked our Kylie up when she was 7 weeks old. What at beautiful little Shihpoo. She is black trimmed in white. She is a smart little bundle of joy for us at almost 3 lbs. She keeps us laughing & busy. We have only had her 5 days & she is walking with a leash & harness. She is starting to fetch her bone & doing a high 5 with her paw.  She is so happy & healthy thanks to Gloria & Alvin. They were so easy to work with. You could tell they really love their puppies. We new from our first phone call we were on the right track to find an honest Christian breeder family. Thanks so much.

We adopted our Shipoo Bocephus (now Finnley) about a week ago and we can’t imagine life without him! He is our children’s first pet and he is fitting in so well! From the minute we picked him up, he’s stolen our hearts. He did amazing on our 3.5 hour car ride home, has done so well with sleeping all night in his crate and is picking up super fast on potty training! Gloria was very easy to work with and made our decision to get a puppy from puppies-4u an easy one!

Gloria and Alvin, you both were so kind, thorough and made the adoption process simple. We look forward to many more days loving on Abbi. I would highly recommend Puppies-4U!

I adopted (then Kate) Betty Lou about a month ago, and she is pure joy. She arrived healthy and clean and with a perfectly clean bill of health. Aside from being absolutely the MOST adorable little beagle in the world, she is proving to be a whiz with training. She quickly learned to ring a bell to go outside to potty, and at nearly 12 weeks of age, seldom has accidents in the house, and they are almost always my fault. She is following basic commands- crate, bed, sit, down, go potty, lets go (on leash), and she loooooves to shake hands. She’s a lap dog at night, snuggling up as close to me as she can. She even watches tv! We could not be more in love with her.  On a side note, two different pet supply companies have contacted me about having Betty Lou be a representative of their company after seeing pics of her on Instagram. We are Vero.Seaglass.Lass in Insta if you want to have a peek.

Husker (formally Scooter) is now one of the loves of our lives! From the minute we saw those soulful eyes we knew he needed to be here with us. We had lost of Jake (yes-he was a beagle) and I wasn't sure we wanted another beagle. Then we saw Husker and we were both in love. Gloria and Alvin were so very gracious and kind & helpful. They made the adoption process so seamless. Husker's flight was on time he was sweet and healthy and smelled so good! We feel truly blessed to have found Gloria & Alvin and Puppies-4U! We have had him for 4 days and don't know what we would do without him! Thank you Gloria & Alvin! God bless you both!!

Love at first sight! Let me first start at the beginning!! I began my search for a poodle in April and after having a bad experience I continued my search and found Alvin & Gloria at puppies-4u. From the very beginning Gloria was so helpful and answered all of my questions. I immediately paid my deposit without hesitation! The anticipation was overwhelming but so worth it!! I was already in love before he was even born. After I saw his picture for the first time I was ecstatic! Seeing Benjamin for the first time in person brought tears to my eyes and to my husband(even though he said it was just cold outside and his eyes were watery)! I will always make any future purchases from this family because they made me feel like family!! The two of you are such a blessing and I will be a fan of yours for life!! God Bless you both!!!

Tiny baby girl Coco came home to live with us yesterday.  She was great traveler as we had a long ride home.  Everything Alvin and Gloria told me about Coco did not discribe her!!  She is far beyond all our expectations.  We love her to bits!  All transactions, emails, phone calls were most helpful and they made it so easy to bring this baby home.  Thank you to Alvin and Gloria for raising such a perfect little girl.  Thank you for filling the big hole in our hearts when our beloved Harley and Shiree passed from old age.  We aren't so lonely now.  Thanks for the hugs when we met and I fell apart with love at first sight.  Coco is such a bright little girl.  Words can't say enough about this couple and the fur babies they offer to us.

From the beginning my communication with Gloria was informative friendly and very flexible. And when I picked my beautiful beagle boy out things moved quite easily and she sent me all the information I needed to pick up Spanky who arrived spotlessly clean well fed and well-adjusted took a few days for him to acclimate but he's a bright-eyed curious little beagle boy into everything, love him, love dealing with Gloria thank you

We picked up our Shihpoo puppy, Angel, a little over a week ago.  She is our first family dog and the transition has been far easier than we ever imagined.  We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Puppies-4U!  Gloria was so friendly to speak with on the phone and provided additional information and pictures promptly that I requested.  Gloria was also helpful in beginning to potty train Angel in the few weeks before we picked her up.  We drove to West Plains for pick up because of her small size.  It was apparent how much love and attention she had received from Gloria and Alvin from their interactions and was touching to see them emotional to let her go.  From the first night we brought Angel home, she slept overnight in her crate which was unbelievable to us!  She came to us crate trained and essentially potty trained which was also amazing for an 8 week old puppy.  Angel has blended into our family of 5 perfectly and is a playful, loving, even tempered, adorable puppy.  I would highly recommend Puppies 4-U!  Thank you Gloria!  Poggio Family--St. Louis, MO

The addition of Savannah, a 3 pound sable ShihPoo, into our family has been an easy transition. She is a balanced, calm, intelligent, playful, confident and social puppy.  She melded into our crew without hesitation.  Especially considering we have a farm.  She was introduced to horses, goats, chickens and three other dogs varying from 130 pounds to 9 pounds.  She is one with them all.  She exudes love! I credit Gloria and Puppies 4u. We are extremely happy with our puppy and highly recommend Puppies 4u! Aleah Wicks. Tryon, NC

On May 30th we received our two new family members: Shihpoo  puppies, Major and Maggie(Lil Clementine).  They are absolutely precious!  We fell in love with them at first sight.  They are 3 lbs of fluff.  It is obvious that Gloria and Alvin love all their puppies.  Puppies-4U is a wonderful organization for anyone interested in adopting a healthy, happy puppy---or two.  Everytime we called Gloria with questions, she was very helpful and patient with us.  We give Gloria, Alvin and Puppies-4U an A .

I just adopted a shihpoo puppy. I had been looking online trying to find one that was responsible priced and also came from somewhere home like. When I found lill blue (now Bandit) I fell in love. I contacted Gloria about him and talked to her to make sure he was the right fit for me. Later on I decided that I was going to be his forever home. Gloria made it a very easy process and delivered me the puppy of my dreams. Bandit was already started potty training, and made a very easy transition into our family. Big thank you to puppies-4u/ Gloria for being so helpful and for finding  me my best friend.

When my husband and I decided we were going to adopt a toy poodle for our babies for Christmas, I had NO idea where to start. A family member told me about an online site to check out.  The few things I knew were - I didn't want to adopt from a puppy mill and I wanted a black poodle! When I found our puppy, who is now named Henry, on the site, it brought me to this homepage.  I made a phone call, talked to Gloria and within minutes, knew this was where we wanted to get our new addition to the family.  Gloria was super nice, very informative, assured me the area of play for their babies was wonderful, full of family to play with them, open area to roam and not overflowing with untaken care of puppies.  Over the next weeks, Gloria was always quick to respond and answer the phone, she would send new pictures at my request (I was already missing him and didn't even know him :) ),  told me all about his favorite toys and answered all questions a new mommy would need to bring home her baby.  I'm grateful to God for putting Gloria and Puppies-4U in our path.  I would adopt all of their babies if I could, but Henry seems to be enough for us to handle right now :).  We are overjoyed with our new addition to our family and could not imagine life without Henry "Henro!"

Gloria, I wanted to thank you for our beautiful shihpoo baby "Victoria" - we named her Penny Pearl, after our beloved Casee Pearl, which we lost suddenly, July 30, 2017. I didn't think I wanted another puppy right away, but when I came across your website and saw Penny's photo, it was love at first sight. She has been a wonderful blessing and steals the hearts of everyone she meets. She has such a sweet playful personality and so easy to potty train! Thank you so much for all the information you shared to help us prepare for her arrival.

This review has been long past due but I hope to make up for the lost time by describing beautiful Smitty and the joy he has brought to my life. He came out of his crate from the airport last September full of energy, a multitude of kisses, and smelling like roses! (Gloria's special potion!) He lept onto my lap and from that moment on I was bonded for life; Smitty captured my heart with his angelic love and sweetness and I knew there was nothing I wouldn't do for him. He was my baby boy and I forever his mama. I can't even describe the joy Smitty brings to all people and pets he encounters. He truly is a one of a kind puppy, wanting to greet, kiss, and simply love upon every human, dog, plant (lol)  that crosses his path. Even if they're across a busy street, Smitty notices them and will salute them by facing them, standing on his hind legs and wagging his tail like a little's so cute, people actually will actually cross a busy street to meet him and always comment on how extraordinarily loving  and happy he is and so beautiful as well. Smitty is one of the most popular dogs at the doggy day camp he goes to a couple days a week; the dogs swarm around him cause his energy is so positive and loving and the staff can't get enough of him!  Smitty has been an angel from day one. Easy to potty train, intuitive, very receptive with excellent eye contact when someone is talking to him, and just the biggest lover there is.  I love waking up in the morning with his head on my neck (he sleeps as close to me as he possibly can!), and I love that he showers me with little kisses until I'm practically suffocating! Lol. He has about 6 different barks, and they all mean he is telling me something different, it's hilarious! And of course I, as his mama, know exactly what they all mean! Smitty will be training to be a therapy pup at a year of age, and as a therapist I know he will bring so much love and joy to the elderly patients I work with. I know this review is long but I can't emphasize enough how wonderful Shih-Poos are as pets for any age in any loving environment. More specifically, Gloria's Shih-Poos are raised in the most loving environment, socialized perfectly with children and pets.  Gloria is genuine and kind and responds to every question,concern, etc with extreme detail and patience. I never felt rushed in my multitude of phone calls and emails regarding purchasing Smitty.  Her faith is inspiring and I know her faith and love is the reason I'm blessed with an angelic puppy today. I am forever grateful for Smitty and look forward to him having a new little Shih-Poo brother or sister in the future!

I came across puppies-4u while searching for our second shipoo.  Gloria was very helpful, and knowledgable in answering all of my questions. I had never purchased a puppy online, and Gloria made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision. We have had our Slugger for almost two weeks now, and he is such a joy. He's a happy, playful, healthy little guy who is getting a lot of love from us.  Thank you Gloria!

My husband and I recently got married and were proactively searching for the perfect puppy. When we came across Puppies-4U we just couldn’t resist the cuteness and the huge coincidence that the puppies available were born on our wedding day. Gloria was beyond amazing – we unfortunately had some issues with Delta airlines but we were always kept up to date with any changes and continuously received follow-up calls/emails from her. I loved working with Gloria as she made us feel comfortable and secure. She also provided all of the information necessary for our new puppy to ease his transition to a new home. He is now almost 12 weeks old and we couldn’t be happier. He brings so much joy to our lives, we can’t imagine our days without him. He is healthy and super energetic – loves to cuddle and play with his squeaky toys. Thank you Puppies-4U for your great service and professionalism. We’re beyond grateful for our puppy! Best, Alex & Paola
