Online puppy scams are more common than ever before, and it’s tough to trust online breeders and sellers. With our Breeder Pledge and Uptown Approved products and services, we’re creating a place where awesome breeders, businesses and families can come together with a shared love of dogs.
A puppy mill is basically a factory for dogs. At mills, breeding dogs are treated like machines and forced to produce litter after litter of unhealthy puppies until they’re no longer useful. These puppies are often sickly and and antisocial, costing their new owners roughly $5000 in added vet bills...and these pups also have drastically shorter lifespans.
We work with breeders of all types of dogs, from purebreds like the loyal German Shepherd, goofy Dachshund and friendly Golden Retriever, to awesome “designer” breeds like the Labradoodle and Goldendoodle. Take a look at our featured breeds for more info on our breeders’ available puppies for sale.

Our process involves connecting you with some of the best, most awesome breeders and breeding businesses we could find (all independently vetted and reviewed) to ensure you're being matched with the pick of the litter.
Good question. Puppy scams are as common online as car mechanic scams are in the real world. Besides our tough screening process for new breeders, we’re not shy about the praise we’ve received from past customers living the good life with their new best friends. Take a look at some of our reviews and see for yourself! What you'll find are positive reviews from people who found the perfect puppy for them.
With our big network of breeders and businesses, we try to provide families with as many puppy finder choices as humanly possible. With that being said, some dogs are just less common than others—such as micro Labradoodles, dapple Dachshunds, etc. We’ll do our best to connect you with the right breeders, but remember that these rare pups get adopted fast!
