Welcome to HealthyPups small breed puppies for sale!  Because a healthypup is much cheaper than vet bills!  In business here since 1982!  A+ Better Business Bureau Rating! Our References Page includes local animal control, veterinary doctors, and many other local professionals!  See our FACEBOOK page, an open public forum, to read posts from past customers! We have pure bred and designer hybrid puppies for sale! This site contains life changing educational opportunity for pet owners! 

Please visit "Our Facility" to learn the real truth about pet issues, and how pet rescue organizations and their brainwashed disciples are using news and social media to create false blogs, stories, and reviews to attack breeders, and create pet sympathies to scam the public out of 100,000,000.00+ per year in donations to save the animals, less than 1% of which may go to pet shelters. Their game is to have fictional buyers constantly create false blogs and reviews concerning animal health/welfare and call all breeders a puppy mill, with their goal being negative stories that encourage public to donate to save the pets!

To date, not even one of the people who have left negative attack reviews online concerning our business have ever actually visited our nursery. 

It is sad that the American pet industry has become a part of corrupt American politics, with too many people putting the money in their back pocket for doing nothing.  No, a real puppy mill with sick animals would never invite YOU to visit. Please call us for an appointment if you wish to visit us in person! (336) 957-3609

The above window is a slide show, featuring photos of both purebred and designer hybrid puppies.  (Hybrids are very popular with pet owners, because so many pure breds can be less healthy and harder to house train.)  Puppies currently for sale are posted in videos located within the individual links of this site.  The true value of a pet is in the happiness that it brings to our life; NOT in its pedigree! HealthyPups... when only the best pet, best care standard, and best price will do!  •Please wait for the slide show to load! Please READ our material. This site is a great source of pet ownership education, and the material here will forever change your perception of many controversial pet issues!


IMPORTANT!  LISTEN to this video BEFORE visiting here or buying a pet from us! This will save much time when you visit because you won't have to read through our material or spend time with me having to discuss these issues with you.  You will learn the truth about pet politics, pet care, how to be prepared for visiting our pets in person, and our health guarantee. Please send an email saying that you have listened, read, understand, and agree to this material if you are unable to visit here and sign your paperwork in person, and you plan to have a shipper pick up a pet for you.  Please also read the material in the FAQ's and Our Facility links.

Almost all who sell pets post cute little photoshopped pictures of puppies with bows in the hair, made with an irresistable background setting.  We show our pets on video...just click on the above left links (desktop version), menu button (mobile version), or below links and scroll to bottom of page to see videos. Turn on speakers to hear audio. Prices are posted underneath each video. Dates of birth are posted on video interface, and audio shares puppy information. Video shows the honestly represented pet as it looked at the time the video was made. Please note that long coated dogs are born with short hair, and it does take time for the hair to grow. Examples of longer coat puppies of various ages are posted in the above slide show. Most sellers will only ship to you or meet you somewhere: we welcome your visit to come see our pets in person.

HOURS:  We are open most days by appointment.  We do close for the true Christian Sabbath on the seventh day as determined by the Bible lunar calendar.  Days that we will be closed in the near future are as follows: JANUARY 1-20-19, 1-27-19,  FEBRUARY 2-3-19, 2-5-19, 2-12-19, 2-19-19, 2-26-19, MARCH 3-5-19, 3-7-19, 3-14-19, 3-21-19, 3-28-19.  We are open every other day by appointment only! Call to schedule a visit- (336 ) 957-3609 Come without an appointment and you risk that I may not be available to help you!
Please be considerate and visit us only when you are ready to buy. This is a ministry in which I dearly love to make folks happy with a pet.   Visitors are a biological threat to bring respiratory viruses to our puppies.  This web site is for looking as long as you wish. We can also face time with you to give you an updated live look at a puppy if the video is not up to date. Visiting should be reserved for healthy, serious, and ready buyers only, please.  Please do not visit here if you or anyone in your family has a runny nose, or if you have visited other places to see puppies today!
The proper age for most small puppies to go home is 8-12 weeks, depending on the breed.  We will gladly reserve a pet for you and provide a special occasion photo of the puppy to show your child IF you like a puppy that is not quite old enough to go home at your desired time. We don't warranty puppies that go home at less than the recommended age for that breed! Dates of birth are posted in the narrative and on the video interfaces for each group of pets. Please call with questions! I try to update the web site daily!  Thanks in advance for your patience!

We are a family owned nursery and rescue (not a pet store or brokerage service). Consumer research statistics suggest that 50% of American puppy buyers immediately spent more at the vet than they paid for their puppies, and 1 of 3 pups died after excessive vet bills. Up to 50% of puppies adopted from public shelters, and up to 30% of pups nationwide, have died from parvovirus alone because parvovirus vaccines were not done beginning at 5 weeks of age. It takes years of hands on experience to do a better job with health care for baby animals. Pet owners and other inexperienced care givers only know how to pet puppies, and may even lie about vaccines given.  A huge vet bill is too often the result of buying from a scammer, pet owner, or from an inexperienced care giver. We at HealthyPups provide a care standard with more than 30 years experience! OUR pets receive 2 doses of Neopar parvovirus vaccine BEFORE going to their new homes. Vaccine sellers have repeatedly commented that Neopar is often the only vaccine that seems to consistently stop the spread of viruses in sick animal populations. Are OUR pets the ONLY pets that get 2 doses of Neopar prior to sale? Shouldn't YOUR puppy be a HealthyPup?

Shouldn't your new puppy come from a nursery with more than 30 years experience?  HealthyPups has been open to public visitors at the same address since 1982, and currently has an A+ Better Business Bureau rating!Please LIKE our facebook page- this is a public forum where you can read posts from others who have adopted pets from us!

Up to 50% of puppies adopted through public shelter adoption programs, and 30% of puppies world wide from novice care givers, die from viruses alone after huge vet bills. Some older pets in our nation are dying from distemper now, simply because their puppy shots were not done properly. Shouldn't your puppy be a HealthyPup with proper vaccines and wellness exam ALREADY DONE beginning at 5 weeks of age? Our record speaks for itself; 0 pets lost to viral illnesses for many years now!

Our puppies have begun their proper CRATE TRAINING (NOT confusing pad or paper training in the home of an inexperienced pet owner).
•It is not a good idea to teach puppies to urinate on pads or paper unless you always want them to do so, because it can cause some pets to become confused and potty on rugs or other objects in the floor by accident later! 
•It is also not a good idea to buy a puppy that was raised in a pet owner home.  Most of these have already been accidentally pre-trained to urinate in the floor of their next home, unless you think buying pads and cleaning them would be more convenient for you than your pet going outside! We also raise many hybrid mixes, which are always easy to house train!

Come visit us, OR ground to door PUPPY SHIPPING is available to most areas! You may also make arrangements for our courier to ship to an airport near you!  Prices can sometimes be cheaper if courier is moving multiple pets to your area and does not make a trip just for your delivery.  Contact www.tailwagginpettransport.com for estimates.   The courier's name is Randy Smith.  You can call him at (740) 215-6164.

If visiting the kennel to pick up a pet in person, please PARK your vehicle in our concrete drive located beside our kennel sign.  Please do not drive to the kennel unless you are handicapped and unable to walk.  Your vehicle near the kennel can upset moms and cause them to accidentally injure or kill newborn puppies. Please do not wear flip-flops when coming to see pets, because these can slip on a concrete floor.


PUPPIES LOOK MUCH LARGER ON VIDEO THAN THEY ACTUALLY ARE. PLEASE WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO! I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO CREATE PERSPECTIVE. WE OFFER AN HONEST LOOK AT PUPPIES FOR SALE IN PRESENT CONDITION, ETC, NOT CUTE, PHOTOSHOPPED, MISREPRESENTED PHOTOS! I often have people visit to buy pets they have chosen on video, only to change their mind and buy a larger puppy when they see them in person,  because many worry that the puppy they had chosen is too small and fragile.

Q: Should I buy a male or a female puppy? 

A: Most male puppies neutered promply at 6 months of age will always squat to urinate like a female. Males are also often more confident than females,  and are therefore less likely to urinate in the floor by accident when they get nervous or excited! With all other things in the environment being equal, male puppies seem to like women better, while female pups often prefer men! Although a high percentage of our puppies are likely to love most family members, there can sometimes be an advantage in choosing a pup opposite the sex of the pup's intended favorite person! So many women are in love with a look or with the idea of putting dresses on their pet or putting bows in its ears, that they improve the chances that the dog won't like them as their favorite person just because they bought a female puppy. The fact that so many of these female "girlie" pets are childish also contributes to this situation, because these are the pets that most often prefer men over female owners.  It seems that every little girl thinks she wants a female puppy. I would recommend a male puppy for female owners, because females often like men better. I have had many complaints from women over the years that their female pet prefers a male family member, and doesn't like them!  A male puppy neutered at the correct time is no more likely to raise his leg than the female is to be nervous and tinkle. It is also common for young girls to be in love with the idea of dressing female puppies in pink, putting bows in the hair, etc.  A male puppy does not know that he is not a girl:)  He will not mind that his clothes and bows are pink, and you don't have to tell your friends that he is not a girl!  You can also save money by choosing a male also, since we often sell males cheaper (because 75% of our puppies are born males). It is also much cheaper to get males neutered than to spay females.

Q:  When is a puppy old enough to go home?

A:  Most puppy buyers are deceived to believe that it is OK for any puppy to go home as soon as it is no longer nursing it's mother.  This is true for many large breeds, but can be a recipe for disaster for toy size puppies.  The most common cause of puppies being taken to the emergency vet for thousands in energency IV's, etc, is being taken home too soon to endure the stress of travel, being handled excessively, and adapting to a new home.  This happens most often when families try to make puppies fit into their vacation, work schedule, or special event gift giving plans.  More and more parents try to give their children what the child wants with no regard for what actually works.  A small child will often take home a puppy that would fit into their pocket if the breeder and their parents would let them; very often to watch it die after about 3 days. Most small breeds should be at least 10 weeks old before going home, but any age up to 6 months is an ideal time. A three month or older puppy is a great age to endure the stress of going to your home, playing with an existing pet, or with your child.  You can also save hundreds by getting a puppy with the puppy shot schedule already completed and have the peace of mind in knowing that your puppy is not likely to get parvo virus! ! The slightly older puppies are most often available in the Fall when a few puppies remain because they were not taken due to vacation season and October syndrome- when hundreds of families won't buy til Christmas, when they all land here to fight over them at the same time.  Yes, we will work with you to reserve a pet to go home at a specific time.  We will gladly hold any pet for you if you place a deposit on it- up to 12 weeks for free;  $5.00/day to cover our expenses between 12 weeks and the time you pick up the puppy! We will be glad to face time with you to get a live look at a specific puppy before you place your deposit. Please call with any questions!


We accept cash, U. S. postal money orders, and paypal.  The above PayPal emblem is NOT a link. A 30% deposit is required to reserve a puppy.  Paypal is subject to fees.  Paypal users please include 3% extra to cover fees. The remaining balance is due (cash preferred) if/when you visit us in person to pick up your pet at the recommended time to go home (56-84 days, depending on the breed you choose). All puppies to be shipped by ground to door courier to your door must be paid in full by 9 weeks of age to avoid forfeiture of deposit. Courier delivery fees are paid directly to the courier upon delivery. (call Randy Smith at www.tailwagginpettransport.com for estimate).  You can pay for the puppy or reserve a puppy by deposit through www.paypal.com by sending money to This email address is being protected from spambots.

For those of you have done a good job reading my material, I do apologize for repeatedly reposting some of this material.  It is impossible to get some to read at all, and it is an even greater challenge to inform some folks to the point that we can be sure there's a reasonable chance we can have a mutually successful kennel visit!

Google and check the prices of others. You will find that no one offers a better care standard and price than HealthyPups! Puppies are very expensive in some areas of the world, and cost much less in others. If you live in one of those areas where puppies cost more, we invite you to come visit here to buy your next puppy,  OR let us SHIP ONE TO YOU! Our clients often save 50% or more, as compared with buying a pet in their local area! Please call us at (336) 957-3609 or email with any questions! For quick contact, please call.  Approximately half my emails get caught in the quarantine filter, and are delivered only once per 24 hours.

Our care standard includes the following veterinary care ALREADY DONE at specific ages.  Minimum recommended age of adoption is 10 weeks, with any pet older than 10 weeks being a better value and more secure investment because of decreased risk of disease and stress related adaptive issues (travel, playing with children or other pets, etc).  5 weeks-Neopar. 7 weeks-Nobivac 5way. 9-10 weeks-Neopar. 13 weeks-Nobivac.  16 weeks Nobivac.  20 weeks Nobivac.  Rabies can be done at 16 weeks of age.  Puppies also have had fecal analysis and correction for parasites and bacterial imbalances that can cause problems in the near future. They get Ivomec Topical to prevent Sarcoptic and Demodectic Mange, Ear Mites, Fleas, and Ticks. Specific wormers are also given as needed. Coccidiostat is used to prevent protozoa. Heart worm preventatives are also up to date. Because one of every three pups sold in the US die from parvo virus each year, and because Neopar seems to be the only vaccine that is protecting against mutated strains of the virus, our goal is that your pet get TWO doses of Neopar BEFORE it goes home, and does not need veterinary care until booster vaccines are due! NOTHING is more important for your puppy than 2 doses of Neopar. A wise buyer should not adopt even a free puppy that did not get 2 Neopar vaccines! For those who want a healthy puppy with no immediate vet bills, NO PUPPY, not even a FREE puppy, is likely to be CHEAPER than ours!
