Questions & Answers

Questions about puppies for sale in Rhode Island? We have answers.

How much do puppies for sale in RI cost?

The breeders in our network price dogs for sale in RI based on a number of criteria. Essentially any factor that affects supply and demand will affect the price of the puppy. So a more rare, but more sought after breed will cost more. A more common breed will be lower in price. The breeders you’ll find listed here will also price the pups based on their sex and the color and quality of their coat. And more experienced, highly recommended breeders will charge more for their puppies as well. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s a pup that fits your needs and your budget.

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

Yes, of course. If you’re looking for the perfect puppy, RI residents and those in surrounding states may look at puppy listings outside their state to find a rare breed, or a puppy with the exact look they’re seeking. Whatever you’re trying to find, our network of breeders is very extensive on Uptown Puppies, but you may fall in love with a puppy that’s out of state. Dog breeders have lots of experience sending new owners their puppies by plane over airlines that accommodate pets.

How do you screen those who breed puppies for sale in Rhode Island?

We only show you RI puppies that come from the most reputable, quality, experienced breeders in the state. When we screen, we look at the breeder's background. They have to have a formal, ongoing relationship with an attending veterinarian. We also only show you puppies that come from breeders with at least 18 months or more experience breeding dogs, and who have raised at least two litters. These are just two of the 47 standards that must be met for breeders to be listed on our network.

How is Uptown different from other places where I can get puppies for adoption in RI?

Any puppy you see on Uptown Puppies comes from a breeder that meets all our qualifications for ethical standards of care for the puppies and their parents. The dogs always have access to clean drinking water and recognized food, given at correct feeding intervals to keep the dogs at a healthy weight. They also must be provided with daily human interaction, exercise, and play.

Where can I find dogs for sale? (RI locations)

What is a puppy mill?

When searching for a new puppy, RI residents should be aware that not all pet stores in RI that sell puppies, or pet classifieds RI listings have to offer are bred by ethical dog breeders. Beware of advertisements for cheap puppies for sale in RI especially, but not all unethical dog breeders are obvious to someone who hasn’t done the vetting that we have to list only the most ethical puppy breeders on Uptown. Puppy mills are breeders that don’t give the highest quality of care and attention to the animals they work with and breed.

What are some of the best breeds for apartments?

When shopping for puppies, Rhode Island residents who live in apartments have special requirements of the breed they select. If you’re looking for small dogs for adoption in RI, the breeders on our network offer many small dogs for sale in RI.

Other good small dog breeds include: Malteses, Pomeranians, Poodles, Bulldogs, Basenjis, Boston Terriers, and Dachshunds.

What are some of the most intelligent and easy to train breeds?

When looking for the perfect puppy, Rhode Island residents may seek a breed that’s intelligent and teachable. If you want a very social, obedient, easily trainable breed that’s very smart and likes to please its owners, consider a Border Collie, Poodle, Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd, Havanese, Border Terrier, Boxer, or Australian Shepherd.

What is a hybrid breed/designer dog?

Many of the most interesting, visually striking, super fun and unique puppies for sale in RI are designer / hybrid breed dogs. Hybrid designer dogs have become very popular lately. They are cross bred mixes of some of the most popular thoroughbred dogs. If you want a hybrid breed, consider a Golden Doodle, Saint Berdoodle, Pomsky, Bullmatian, Morkie, Goberian Husky, or Cockapoo. (There’s plenty more.)

Which kinds of breeds are best for families?

When searching for the most ideal puppies for sale, Rhode Island families with small children need to look for a puppy of a breed that is very gentle, friendly, and loyal so it’s good with their kids, won’t get jealous, and doesn’t snap or growl if their child(ren) accidentally bother or startle the dog. Some of the best known family dog breeds are Golden Retrievers, Beagles, Labrador Retrievers, Boxers, Poodles, Collies, Bulldogs, Doodles, and Pugs.

Do you sell puppies in RI?

Not really. Uptown Puppies does not breed any dogs, and neither is Uptown a chain of dog breeders. Instead, Uptown is a qualified network of the most professional, ethical, caring breeders in your area. Any puppies you see on our website come from a dog breeder in our network. We only show you puppies from breeders we’ve vetted and that meet our high standards for the quality of care and experience that we want to see in all dog breeders.

Do you really only list the very best dog breeders?

Absolutely. That’s our mission at Uptown Puppies. Not all pet stores that sell puppies in RI get them from breeders who treat the puppies as well as we think they should be. And not all pet stores do either. So if you’re seeking RI puppies for sale, you can rest assured that any puppy you see on our website came from a dog breeder that treats them and cares for them like family, as well as you will when you bring them home and welcome them with love.
