Questions & Answers
Puppy prices will vary based on a lot of different factors. For example, your breeder’s experience can influence price, as well as the specific breed you’re looking for. Even your puppy’s gender, coat color/type, and size can have an impact on price—luckily, Uptown’s listed businesses and breeders have a pooch for nearly everyone!
Absolutely! One of the nice perks of working with Uptown Puppies is that our listed businesses and breeders have a lot of experience making travel arrangements for their puppies in Texas. That means no matter where you live, you can easily meet and pick up your pup from your most convenient, major US airport.
Uptown is always getting new applications from prospective companies and breeders who want to join our growing network, but the fact is that fewer than 10% of these applications are approved. Have a look at our binding Uptown Pledge for more info on what makes a great, ethical dog breeder.

A puppy mill is sort of like a factory for dogs. At mills, the focus is entirely on profits—not on the happiness of your family or the health of your puppy. When you bring home a dog from a mill, you might feel like you’re “rescuing” your dog—but mill dogs often suffer from debilitating medical conditions, and many have shorter lifespans, too.
At Uptown Puppies, we work with businesses and breeders of all kinds—from your classics like Poodles, Golden Retrievers and French Bulldogs to modern designer breeds like Goldendoodles, Maltipoos and Labradoodles. Have a look at some of our featured dog breeds for help choosing your new favorite!
