What a great puppy boutique! I stress the word "boutique" because this place is unlike any pet store I have been to. I purchased my maltipoo puppy "Stella" from RR over a month ago and she has been nothing but a joy. Wherever I go people ask me where I got her because of her unusual color.The store is clean, no doggy smells, the puppies look happy healthy and well kept. Some of the merchandise is expensive but unique. I decided to purchase my puppy here for a few reasons, mainly the cleanliness, overall condition of the puppies, her wonderful personality and dark red color. FYI If you are intending on purchasing a puppy you must sanitize your hands and the youngest puppies are not constantly handled by customers to reduce germs and stress. I found this to be a wonderful concept which makes me believe they only have the best intentions for their puppies. I highly recommend Raising Rover if you are looking for a great puppy experience. My baby Stella is my pride and joy!

Buying a puppy

My neighbor had bought a happy, healthy puppy from this shop so I went there, "just to look." They've been in business 20 yrs and are clearly not a puppy mill. I called the breeder myself and had a long talk about the dogs and the shop. They have just a few puppies at any time and take very good care of them. They spent almost 2 hrs telling me how to care for him. The one I bought was a new breed to me. Small dogs are usually not "therapy dogs" -- i.e. calm, gentle, smart (and so cute!) but Mi-kis are. The sales people couldn't have been nicer or more helpful whenever I called with questions after getting my puppy home. They have all the supplies you need and also sell baby things for human kids!

This store is absolutely amazing and worth your time. I recently bought a new Morkie here and it has given me great happiness as an addition to our family. I buy it all sorts of clothes and shoes and collars that just add cuteness to my CocoChanel. I love shopping here, because it is a VERY SANITIZED place and the service is wonderful. When i bought the dog, they gave me so much information that would help me in raising this puppy. It was so cool that as I was shopping here, Blake Lively came in with her poodle and was shopping as well, and I might add that she was very sweet. I am very grateful to have acquired my little puppy from such a beautiful and confident business, whom I'm sure will have great success in the nearby future.
