The rescue industry wants you to believe that it's a sin to buy a puppy so you will send them your money! There are many nice large breed, mostly pit bull mixes at the shelters! Most of the pets that we have are not often found at shelters! If you can love a shelter pet and have no small pets for them to attack, these shelter dogs need good homes. If you want to donate to save these animals, make sure your donation goes directly to your local shelter. Only 1% of the money collected by the rescue industry goes to the cause! If you don't want a large breed mix for your lapdog OR if you cannot afford the vet bills and problems that are common in shelter or free pets from neighbors, then our pets are for you! Many make the mistake of thinking genetic purity is a prize when buying a pet, but refined purebreds with pedigrees are often in many ways the worst dog you can possibly buy. We specialize in professionally maintained mixes. Mixes are naturally healthy and don't often have genetic defects. We have learned that the more you mix them, the healthier and more intelligent they become. A three or four way mix is likely to be the healthiest and most intelligent dog you can possibly buy! Almost all of the "genetic defects" in mixes are actually caused by bad food, poisonous doggie treats, and complicated environmental irritations. For those of you who are interested in our pure bred dogs, please know that we do not breed cousins together. We keep the genetics as diverse as possible so our purebred dogs are as healthy as possible. We are here to advise and help you prevent problems!

Let our friendship and 41 YEARS EXPERIENCE help protect YOUR pet life! We invite you to buy your puppy from the breeder who raised it, instead of a broker group, broker family, or broker club with an elaborate website and pet storefront who may have trucked it in from an out of state puppy farm and now pretends to know all about it!

READ our FAQ’s & WARRANTY page to learn more about our warranty and many other pet issues! Visit OUR FACILITY to learn why rescue organizations want you to believe that all breeders are a puppy mill! Do your kids have ALLERGIES? Let us help! Learn about us BEFORE you are scammed by puppy sellers and care givers in ways that you have not yet imagined! To read REVIEWS, visit our REFERENCES link. Interact with hundreds of past customers who have bought our pets on FACEBOOK!  Call with questions!  IMPORTANT! Pups in the videos are MUCH smaller than they appear! To help you choose a puppy that's large enough to survive the first week with your children, live video chats/updated video clips are recommended! Choose a puppy marked SALE for reduced prices and to skip some vet visits for puppy shots. These pups are strong enough to survive your children, play with existing pets, and you can also skip some puppy mischievousness. Some of these were left behind because they were ready to go home when families were busy and couldn't bring home a pet at that time. We have other pets that we are helping because their breeder/owner got her covid shot and died of blood clotting in less than one week. Most children will always pick the tiniest puppy and leave the larger one to get bigger, but wise adults will buy an older, stronger, more vaccinated puppy after they have lost a young pup to a virus. Because choosing pets that are too small and too young to endure handling stress and to get shots without having vaccine reactions may be the greatest cause of unnecessary vet bills, we don't send puppies home as soon as many breeders.

UPCOMING LITTERS born or should be born soon include Cavapoos, Maltipoos, Teddy Bears, Yorkiepoos, Morkiepoos, Schnoodles, Fruggles, and Mini Goldendoodles.

Puppy shots can cause problems for puppies that are vaccinated too small and too young, just as covid shots have caused problems and deaths in humans. I would guess that approximately 50% of puppies have vaccine reactions. A few puppies even die after being vaccinated too soon and too small by vets who trust science. The vets are scamming their clients to believe that pre-existing sickness and defects are the cause when these vaccine reactions occur. This has been happening for so long now that most vaccine reaction symptoms are considered normal and are not being recognized as being vaccine reactions by most veterinary doctors. We are here to help and advise you with these issues, also. 3 month and older puppies seldom have these problems and will love you just the same! Tiny puppies should be at least 10 weeks or older when they go home.

Nothing is better than the joy of owning a good pet! Every child should grow up with memories of having their own personal pet and share in the responsibility of caring for it because this helps children grow into more loving, caring, and responsible adults! Assuming that everyone lives a normal life expectancy, these children may soon become YOUR caregiver. Teaching them to be responsible in caring for their own personal puppy at an early age may cause them to do a better job in caring for parents later!

We challenge you to READ THIS PAGE and you will want to buy only from Healthy Pups! You can't afford NOT to have a puppy since it can cost megabucks to entertain spoiled children when they are bored! A puppy will babysit many years for free, and you can't afford to buy a pet from a seller with less experience! Repeated vacations and superficial entertainments are most often soon forgotten, but memories of good times with a childhood pet last forever! We offer our friendship, and we answer the phone in the middle of the night to help and share our 41 years with you! We have more experience than almost anyone else in the business! Now I want to share some truth as to why our pets are better!

Most people want to make as much money as possible with as little investment and work as possible!  Unfortunately, not everyone is honest in their attempts to make money. I would estimate that 95% of the independent advertisements online are SCAMMERS attempting to solicit deposits for puppies that don’t exist. We average 5 calls daily from folks who have been scammed to send deposits to pretend sellers. I would also estimate that 95% of the real puppies online are posted on elite BROKER websites who are reselling puppies! When you see 50 pages of puppies on one website, it's time to ask where did the puppy come from?  is this the PUPPYMILL CLUB? 

It's easy to identify the brokers when we can see that that they are selling many more puppies than they could possibly house and care for! They are likely to scam you with 10 year extended warranties that cover very little and offer you another puppy at a reduced price if you are among the few that actually prove a claim. A replacement puppy then comes from the same breeder and they sell it to you 50% off the $3000.00 price of the first puppy! They have made friends who participate in their broker kickback system with ripoff finance plans and a monthly subscription to expensive doggie treats that voids your 10 year warranty if you quit buying them at any time in the life of your pet! They also want to sell you pet products, health insurance plans, etc! We often sell puppies to angry people who have bought puppies from brokers who failed to honor warranties and coverages. The broker arrangement makes it possible for the seller to resell puppies without doing the work of caring for the parents and raising the puppies! It also makes it possible for the breeders to raise and sell puppies without investing in a nice place to keep the puppies and adult breeding dogs. You don’t hear much about puppy mills on the news these days because they no longer sell directly to the pet public. This way they don’t have to worry about being inspected since there’s no one to complain when the buyer doesn't know where the puppy originally came from! The brokers have created elaborate storefronts with impressive business names to make the buyer feel like it’s an honor to be considered for one of their pets! They have created INCLUSIVE phrases like our club, family, or professional group to make their relationship with the puppy farms sound good AND TO MAKE THE BUYER FEEL SAFE,  BECAUSE SO MANY OTHER PET OWNERS SHOP THERE. When you buy from a broker, you have no opportunity to see where the puppy was whelped and raised, and you don't know if you are supporting a breeder who should be shut down! The brokers may scam you to pay more for tiny female puppies without telling you that male puppies love women better, cost less, and males are no more likely to raise their leg and mark than female pups are to be nervous and tinkle, IF the male puppy is neutered at the correct time. Over the past 40+ years I have heard many female puppy complaints from women who say she loves my dad, husband, boyfriend, brother, but she doesn't like me!  The brokers also like to call every puppy a “teacup” because they know a child is already in love with the idea of holding it, and give the puppies cute names to make the buyer feel that the puppy has been spoiled and loved. The truth is that YOU should be able to choose a name for your puppy, and that the broker may know very little about your puppy because they picked it up at a farm and brought it to their pet store in a van!

Do the brokers know if the parents had good personalities or genetic defects in their bloodline? Do they know the ancestors so they can honestly tell the buyer how big their new puppy might get? DO THEY KNOW if the backyard puppy they are selling you has been exposed to a rabid animal in the past 21 days? Rabies vaccines cannot be given puppies until they are 4 months old. Puppies that are too young for rabies vaccines should not be kept in a wire cage behind someone’s barn because it is possible that sick wildlife can slobber through the wire. About 1990 I had a family of 5 people visit that had just finished rabies shots. They had previously bought and petted a FREE puppy from someone’s back yard that had been in contact with a rabid raccoon. Because rabies is 100% fatal in humans who get sick from it, no one can risk an indirect exposure and everyone with a possible exposure must get shots. In the case of the raccoon exposed puppy, the puppy was put to sleep and this man paid $10,000.00 out of pocket for rabies shots at health department because their insurance company argued that they could not prove that an exposure had occurred and refused to pay. Still want to buy a puppy that’s too young to get its rabies shot and wasn’t raised in quarantine? Can the brokers even be sure that the puppy they are selling you hasn’t already been exposed to another sick puppy and won’t land at the emergency vet hooked up to IV’s soon, since the incubation period for parvo virus can be up to 14 days and it can take more than one vaccine to protect baby pups that are accidentally exposed? Do they know? IF you don't want to buy from a puppy mill, then why would you buy a puppy from a broker that may have bought it from a puppy mill?

Our puppies are raised indoors w/USDA standard hospital clean quarantine! Our love affair with people and puppies has produced a puppy nursery that cost approximately $1,000,000.00! It is a life’s work built with ZERO donations. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and happy! Most people think a virus/vaccine reaction won't happen to me, but these issues are as common in 3 months and younger puppies as viruses in school children. No one wants broken hearted children, unexpected emergency vet bills, or to bleach down their home so the next pup doesn’t get sick.

Yes, it's important to know where your puppy came from! It’s perfectly safe for puppies to be outside and around other animals AFTER shots are done. None of us want unexpected vet bills. QUARANTINE before the puppy shot schedule has been completed is VERY important! Most people live in denial and think a virus can't happen to them, but choosing pets that were raised in a human home that can’t be properly sterilized or in someone’s backyard can be problematic. It can also be dangerous to allow puppy shoppers to pet baby puppies because they can bring viruses from other locations. Healthy Pups began as a business at the request of local vets in 1982 after a litter of puppies that we had just for fun were the only puppies that survived a local parvovirus pandemic. One man in Wilkesboro, NC bought one of our puppies after a referral from Dr. Steve Jackson, DVM. The last six puppies that this man bought had died from Parvovirus. I educated him in how to bleach down and sterilize his home/backyard and sold him a puppy that had been quarantined. He was surprised that our puppy didn’t die, and he became a walking advertisement. Over the next year, we sold almost everyone on his street a puppy! I once imported a rare breed puppy from Italy. I paid $11,000.00 plus shipping for this puppy, and it died from parvovirus in less than 1 week. The puppy had been exposed to a virus before being shipped to me, and the vaccine that it had been given did not protect it. The incubation period for different strains of Parvovirus can be from 3 to 7 days. Everyone thinks that this can't happen to them. A virus at the emergency vet in today's world can cost enough to buy a reasonably nice used car. IMAGINE having to disassemble and bleach down your home and yard before you can get another puppy after a parvo puppy has shed viruses.  This is why we keep young puppies in quarantine, with carefully supervised bio secure visits with public. Puppies raised indoors and quarantined are much less likely to get viruses. The pet public virus situation at the emergency vet is ongoing because vaccines are causing reactions that make puppies shed and share viruses. Most of the folks who have had a puppy die from parvovirus will buy an older puppy next time after they learn that most young puppies are not surviving the latest mutated strain of this virus.

Puppy vaccines should also be used wisely to avoid vaccine reactions. Most veterinary doctors and human doctors will tell you that vaccines are perfectly safe for puppies because they have come to accept that the issues caused by vaccine reactions are normal, and they fail to recognize that most of these initial health issues are in fact caused by vaccines. Did you know that sudden infant death syndrome disappeared during covid? Could this be because medical offices were shut down and babies were not getting those shots? Some of the older puppies for sale on our site now were quarantined and brought into our nursery for rehoming because their breeder/owner got her covid shot and died of blood clotting in less than one week. Puppies can also die from shots, and most vets fail to recognize that unwise use of vaccines causing reactions are to blame. Only last week I got a negative review from an elderly lady who got scammed out of $12,000.00 by a veterinary doctor! She did not follow our recommendations and allowed a sold out to science young vet vaccinate her tiny puppy too soon and it had a short and temporary vaccine reaction that produced respiratory distress, a giardia bloom in the bowels, AND a level two heart murmur. 98% of murmurs are caused by vaccine reactions, stress or other underlying health issues. Rather than allowing the puppy enough time to recover from the vaccine reaction, this young vet said her puppy had the flu with pneumonia, bloody diarrhea, told her these problems were the breeder's fault, and he then became the savior of the puppy by referring her to his heart surgeon friend and a $12000.00 heart surgery. We have seen MANY puppies present heart murmurs over the past 40 years, and ALL of them except two had normal heartbeats by 6 months of age. 40 years of working with the same group of pets has taught me that humans and pets are getting weaker because of bad food, and trying to repair the malnutrition with vaccines and poisonous drugs only adds to the problem. The real issues are not runs in families/bloodlines genetics or that bacteria and microorganisms are getting stronger and drug resistant.  We can learn more about human health by observing the health of our pets. Mexican clinics treating cancer with healthy plant-based diet have a 94% cure rate even though most of their patients have already been sent home to die after American treatment scams. Whether it be from a vaccine reaction, accidental exposure to a virus though visitors petting or insects/dogs/wildlife bringing sickness before shots are given your puppy, a virus can cause expensive vet bills and many puppies do not survive even with treatment. We are here to help by having pets that are born, raised, and kept in quarantine (not trucked in by a broker) AND vaccinated wisely. Read older reviews and you'll see some folks complaining of parasites. This is BEFORE I learned that the vaccines were causing immune system collapse and allowing the protozoa to bloom. These protozoa live in all dogs AND in humans, and only attack the hosts that are immune compromised. Because we love you and our pets, you can listen and not learn the same way that I did!

Yes, it is important to know the history of your puppy. Baby puppies collected by brokers from multiple locations and transported in a van together may be exposed and get viruses up to 14 days later; even after being vaccinated. Brokered puppies may also be sold to you after being pre-trained to pee in your floor by a bedroom hoarder/breeder.  Properly bred puppies with diverse genetics are sweet, smart, genetically healthy, and easy to house train if done properly. Puppies whose parents are related can produce many genetic defects and are not mentally healthy. We don't know if a puppy is in-bred if we don't know the bloodline and the breeder. For those who want their pet to potty outdoors, choosing in-bred or home raised puppies that a pet owner has already pad or paper trained, or allowed to pee in the floor before you take it home can result in never being able to train your puppy! Puppies trained to use pads and papers are more likely to pee on your rug when you're not watching. Puppies allowed to pee on a breeder’s floor are likely to use your floor when they are once again allowed to play on their familiar potty surface.

Choosing inexperienced veterinary doctors that too closely adhere to animal science or fail to recognize simple environmental irritations can also create problems in fragile puppies. I have more than 40 years’ experience in talking to pet owners and working with the same group of pets without interruption, making it easier to learn about them.  There are many things that they cannot teach in veterinary school.  Choosing bad pet products can make a puppy sick or bring premature onset of diseases often diagnosed as genetic issues. There are many things in life that we learn only through experience.  I have saved the lives of many pets throughout the years that were to be euthanized for incurable genetic defects, when the true cause was environmental irritations, accidental poisonings, or bad pet products including doggie treats! Our goal at Healthy Pups is that you don't have to learn the same way that I have learned. Many of the lessons that I have learned in the past 42 years of doing pets have been heart breaking and expensive; yet so many will not listen.  Americans are the most scammed culture in the world today with almost everyone presenting a perspective that will cause people to buy from them or indirectly support their cause! We are scammed from the cradle to the grave in ways that most never thought possible and made to believe that our problems are normal and can't be prevented. Most of these things are completely preventable though common-sense education and prevention. A high percentage of the things that go wrong in puppy ownership are the results of bad decisions and lack of knowledge! Most of the problems that pet owners endure initially are caused by not caring for their puppy properly when they first take it home, or in choosing a puppy from a bad seller that wasn't cared for properly BEFORE they took it home. Go to our Facebook page and ask our buyers how much time we invested to educate them, so they didn't accidentally create problems for their puppy after they took it home! Most children and uneducated adults who allow children to make poor decisions will take home the youngest and smallest puppy they can get and risk that it can't yet endure handling stress, only to have it shut down and need to go to the emergency vet. This is the least intelligent thing that puppy buyers do because the puppy will grow to be as big as it will get in only a few short weeks IF it survives the stress of playing with your children! Everyone knows the exact size of a 1 gallon milk jug that weighs 8.6 lbs.  When you listen to a puppy video that says this puppy weighs 2 lbs., then this puppy is VERY tiny and you'll need to manage handling stress until it grows a bit, OR you could be smart and buy a older/larger puppy from the same size parents! Choose Healthy Pups to have a better pet life!

When prices are higher and many families struggle to survive financially, those things that they absolutely do not have to buy are often left out of the budget.  Every family CAN afford a puppy, and SAVE MONEY in buying a good puppy. Bored families go out and waste money. Playing with a puppy at home is a gift that continues to give, while superficial entertainment is one and done. Buy a puppy with the soon forgotten beach vacation money and the good times last for many years!  We also gladly provide ownership education which can lower long term ownership costs, initial vet bills, and increase the life expectancy of your pet!

During our 40 years in business, I can remember several times when the public animal shelters were closed down and all of the dogs euthanized as a group because they could not stop the spread of viruses. When young animals are in contact with each other before vaccines are done, OR when public pets sick puppies and then a healthy puppy, the viruses are moved around to cause more sicknesses just as covid has recently done in our friends and neighbors. This is WHY we keep our pets in strict hospital clean kennel quarantine facility and WHY we don't let public come and pet them because we can't be sure they did not play with sick puppies before visiting us. You CAN visit to see the puppies by appointment.  Please call to talk about this! However, you can pet only the one you are taking home with you!  Accidental viral exposures can be expensive and deadly for pets that have not yet received all of their vaccinations. If you can't afford to spend extra money on vet bills or if you don't want your children to see their puppy sick from a virus, then why would you buy from a backyard breeder or broker whose puppies and the viruses and parasites they carry were brought in by the truck load? Strict quarantine with no petting from outside visitors is very important!

Oh, I want to make sure my puppy has a good personality, you might say! Well then, if you want good health, intelligence, and a great personality don't buy a purebred puppy with a fancy pedigree whose parents were first cousins.  All puppies bred with diverse genetics always have great personalities. You are much less likely to have unexpected expenses from an experienced breeder and a bio secure environment.  Our knowledge has come through 40+ years of hands-on experience with the same group of pets.  We see very little difference in the personalities of properly bred puppies once they are in their forever home and adapted.  Not even our senior vets have likely had this unique learning opportunity! The best answer for our pets is preventative maintenance-NOT pet insurance or long term warranty scams. Our goal is that you have the best life with your pet, AND that you don't get scammed by those who want to sell you goods and services throughout the life of your pet! Healthy Pups is a family-owned nursery open for business on this property since 1982! We focus on better care standards, diverse genetics to improve mental and physical health of our puppies so they are genetically healthy with wonderful personalities, and preventative ownership education that can reverse and prevent many canine diseases! Having more experience than almost anyone else in the pet business, we enjoy sharing our valuable experiences to help you have a better pet ownership experience, and to improve your chances of having a longer and better-quality life with your pet!  

 SO, which are most likely to be the best veterinary doctors?  My daughter's lab mix recently swallowed a hot dog on a fish hook hanging from a fisherman's pole at the campground.  A series of vet visits and referrals produced estimates of up to $10,000.00 and the task of driving many hours to advanced veterinary care.  The senior doctor at Twin Oaks Veterinary Hospital was able to get the dog to vomit out the hook by feeding her loaf bread.  You can guess which treatment was more affordable for the owner and better for the dog!  The problem is that our good, experienced vets are growing older and retiring.  Unfortunately, their places are being filled with young doctors who often lack common-sense problem-solving skills. Choose a vet who owns his own practice that has been in business for many years.  Avoid chains and veterinary networks because this is not where you are likely to find the senior doctors with the most experience.  A senior country vet who has his own practice is most often the best choice; especially if you can find one that also does large animals.  Avoid young, inexperienced vets with misinformed, ignorant, politically prejudiced world views and breeder perspectives. I say this because doctors who answer farmers are often more affordable than those doctors who live beside the golf course, see only elite small pet owners,  AND lack problem solving skills. We are here to help you have a good life and NOT be scammed! Google and check the prices of others. You will find that no one offers a better care standard and price than HealthyPups! Call us BEFORE you get scammed!
