Questions & Answers

Questions about puppies for sale in Iowa? We have answers.

How much do puppies for sale in Iowa cost?

Puppies for sale in Iowa go for different prices depending on the pup. If you’re looking for puppies for sale in Iowa under 200 dollars, or within another price range, that’s going to depend on both the dog and the breeder. Kennels selling dogs for adoption in Iowa consider the puppy’s breed, sex, and the quality and color of its fur when setting the price. Also the experience and reputation of the breeder will come into play. Petland puppy prices for instance, and those of other places to get puppies might differ.

Does your breeder network offer dogs for sale in Iowa out of state?

Of course. We have lots of puppies for out of state residents in Iowa. If you’re out of state and find a puppy you like from one of our listed businesses and breeders through Uptown Puppies, you can still get the puppy and welcome it into your family, wherever you may live. That goes for residents of nearby states, and for pet owners as far away as Washington state or Florida. Most of these breeders have plenty of experience sending puppies to new owners via airline.

How do you screen those who breed Iowa dogs?

Anyone looking for puppies for adoption in Iowa will be glad to know that Uptown will only show you puppies from proven, experienced, ethical dog breeders, who know how to properly care for the animals, and offer puppies of the highest quality, with excellent pedigrees, that have been treated like family, as well as you will treat them when you welcome them into your new home as cute and furry member of your own family. Not all breeders who offer pets for sale in Iowa are listed on our directory. In fact, we reject all but 10% of new applicants to be listed on Uptown.

Why is Uptown Puppies different from others advertising Iowa puppies?

When you’re looking for a new puppy, Iowa residents should know not all breeders are equal. Far from it. Many breeders have few scruples about treating the dogs well, or making sure their customers get a healthy puppy. When shopping for puppies for sale, Iowa residents would do well to steer clear of these unscrupulous puppy mills, and stick to the properly vetted, experienced professionals on the Uptown network of qualified dog breeders.

Where can I find puppys in Iowa?

You don’t have to live near Petland, Iowa City and shop among Petland dogs if you live in another part of the state. Through our carefully assembled directory of painstakingly vetted breeding professionals, you can find a puppy for sale in Des Moines, Iowa. Or if you’re seeking dogs for sale in Quad Cities, you can find puppies for sale in Quad Cities on Uptown. Wherever you live in Iowa, there’s the perfect pup for you not far away at an experienced dog breeder nearby.

What is a puppy mill?

For those considering getting free puppies, Iowa residents should be forewarned that they might end up getting their fur friend from a puppy mill. Sadly not all dogs in Iowa are treated well. The Internet has allowed a number of these unscrupulous puppy breeders to pop up online and advertise free puppies or “puppy 4sale!” on sketchy websites and offer pups that have been essentially factory farmed in kennels that don’t take proper care of the dogs. It’s sad and unethical. Don’t take a risk on purchasing or getting a free puppy from a puppy mill.

Which puppy breeds can I find for sale at Uptown Puppies?

If you’re looking for a specific breed on Uptown Puppies, just browse our selection by breed and by look through our breeders. We have a wide variety of puppy breeds available through our network.

Is this like a pet classified ad?

Uptown Puppies is basically an Iowa pet classifieds, for only the most reputable dog breeders to list the most high quality and well cared for puppies, so you can find a fur friend to welcome to your family with no hassle, stress, or worry. The dogs and puppies on our network come from only the most trustworthy and reputable breeders. Browse our listings to find the perfect puppy to bring home and love forever. It’s easy!

How do I know I can trust your Iowa dog breeders?

We only list dogs for sale in Iowa if they come from a breeder we have thoroughly vetted against a rigorous list of standards they must meet for their puppies to find their way onto Uptown. Dog breeders in Iowa must have a certain amount of experience and check off a long list of requirements for how they treat and care for the animals. You can trust these breeders, because we get constant applications to join our network, and we reject more than 90% of them. That’s pretty selective, but we think the puppies and their new owners deserve it.
