Lancaster Puppies

Lancaster Puppies Reviews: They are unprofessional and irresponsible

We checked the pictures of a husky on the and decided to get one husky that looked very pretty. I instantly messaged the lady that we wanted to get that puppy and paid the booking amount. We paid the deposit because we did not want anyone else to get that puppy. We decided to take 4 hours of drive to pick that puppy from Ohio as we lived in Michigan.

We messaged the Lancaster Puppies lady that we would come after four days. In between, I messaged the lady if she had a recent picture of that puppy as the picture was 4 months old. However, she refused to have any latest picture of that puppy. This did seem weird to me. But I had fallen in love with that picture and wanted to get that cute puppy home as soon as possible.

After the days passed and it was the time for us to travel to Ohio, we started our journey. In between of our travel, I got a call from the breeder that the puppy had a small scab on the back. They informed that the scab did happen to peel off and now there was a small soreness on the back. The breeder told me that I could choose a different puppy if I wanted.

I told him that it was okay as I thought that the open sore would be size of a quarter. I told the breeder that I would be coming for that puppy. When I reached there, I found that the puppies were kept in the garage and there were no food or water for them. This meant that they were brought to that place just for us to pick one from.

Anyway, they looked exhausted and seemed as if whoever was taking care of them was very irresponsible. The puppy that I chose from the picture had a huge open sore on the back. It was around the size of a palm. How could they not check that before? It was something that could have been visible right away. They said that they did not know the reason for that problem.

I have two cats and my son is 8 years old. We could not take the risk of introducing any infection at home. So, we decided to take another one. However, when we got back, I found out that the puppy had several scabs on his body. It was because of the skin infection that I was worried about. So, we went straight to the vet as the poor puppy needed help.

He is since on antibiotics. When I called to inform about the situation and demanded a refund. They refused. I am keeping this puppy for sure. I know he needs a home and not some filthy backyard. But must verify the breeders and take measures to ensure safety of the dogs.

However, they seemed as if only worried about money. It is pure business for these guys and I hate to say, but they don’t deserve to sell pets.

  3. Sick puppy

    Bought a shichon August 2021 from Allen Miller in Reading Pa from
    Pup had URI, ear infection, ear mites, lice, and a parasite called Giardia. What a mess. No refund. Stupid Amish man tells me, its all common. LICE IS COMMON. WHAT ? Cost me $900 to clear my dog up. I guess UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTION IS COMMON TOO !!!! Xrays alone were $600. Had to treat my other two dogs. Another $200 …. Guess what…. He is still on there advertising.

    1. Almost scammed

      Thank you for this info online, i looked into this puppy for-sale site and spoke to a lady name Sandra Marlin– which most likely is fake and told her i found all these claims against her, but she refused to admit any of these and she was not puppy mill. This site ruled-out ms [fake] marlin immediately for me. She disguises herself as a retired preacher woman now in puppy business, w/e….(moved on!). Why are the cops not policing this type of garbage (she claims they are in INDIANA which probably fake too)

  4. I went on looked at a bunch of puppies, I didn’t see her, but I saw her sister, I immediately called this lady, her name was Lauren and she was super helpful. The next day I went to three different houses, I fell in love with the first puppy at the first house, but she wasn’t AKC registered, the second house was very chaotic, we finally went to the last house and the breeder took her out mentioning she was just the runt of the litter, I instantly fell in love and put my secured down payment on her! After that I had to wait a few weeks till she was 8 weeks old, which was fine gave me some time to prepare for her coming. Fast forward to the night before, I get a call saying my little puppy had gotten stepped on my a goat, but she’s on medication. I thought why are they just telling me this now, but I figured it’s okay she will be mine soon. The next day my friend and I went to get her, she only was 3lbs, and she did have a scar on her foot, but the scar looked old. I proceeded to sign my papers, pay for her, and we left on our way. Well Lila had to get examined with in 10 day, we went to the vet and besides her foot she looked very healthy. Fast forward to about 2 months after we got her, she was having eye problems, so I took it into my own hands and wrote to the breeder, turned out she ended up getting stepped on by a donkey, and the breeder found her passed out, I ended up getting most of my money back from him. A few weeks after we had went to the vet and we found out lila is going to be a dwarf which wasn’t a surprise since she was so little. So after this was all said and done I did my research and found out Lancaster puppies is a puppy mill, I clearly don’t support puppy mills.

  5. Scammed, not a pure bred puppy

    I purchased a puppy from a “breeder” a few months ago. I paid 2,000 dollars for a pure bred Alaskan malamute puppy. Turns out, it was a husky mixed puppy which I am not allowed at my rental due to the high energy and vocality of the breed.

  6. We advertise on Lancaster Puppies and we are very pleased with them .

  7. Advertised wrong dog breed

    They sold me the wrong dog breed. I saw this adorable little bichon on their site and went to go pick the puppy up. When we first got her she looked exactly like a bichon frise, her ears were droopy and had fluffy white fur. Now I’ve had her almost two weeks and her ears are pointed straight up. Both my vet and groomer thinks she is mixed with Pomeranian Or Chihuahua based on her look and temperament. I love the puppy but so disappointed and feel like I’ve been scammed. I didn’t want a Pomeranian I wanted a Bichon Frise.

    1. Visited two Amish puppy mills

      We went on to and drove out to two appointments to look at puppies and both of them were Amish puppy mills one was in the Lancaster area and the other one was in the Allentown area. The one place had about 80 and the other place had about 60 dogs. These kennels were supposedly inspected and licensed but they were rather dirty and very unfriendly looking for the mothers and fathers. It was a dirty place, both. The puppies we viewed were filthy covered in poop and pee. They had the audacity to tell us the dogs hadn’t been bathed yet. One place said we can bathe the puppy that you decide to take home. Ridiculous. How about bathing your litter of puppies just because they’re dirty not because one is leaving. We didn’t adopt a puppy from either place. When we viewed the parents I’m not sure that they were full-blooded Shihtzu & Toy Poodle. At one place young Amish children were grabbing all the puppies tossing them around and being rough. It seemed like a natural ongoing thing, the parents did not correct the children for being rough. Needless to say the places were dirty enough to make me post this review which isn’t something I do often. We ended up going with a dog breeder that we found on a small breeder with about 20 dogs in the Scranton Pennsylvania area, they were NOT Amish. Their puppies were clean and the area was very clean and the parents area was very clean and organized. What can I say dirty is dirty and clean is clean.

  8. Great puppy. Great site.

    We had no problems with this classified site. How can a classified website be a puppy mill or a scam. This is a classified site, um, classified as in the same thing as your newspaper has.
    It has thousands of dog breeders on it across 10 states. We went to two different dog breeders homes that we located on
    We adopted one of the pups that we viewed. No problems… perfectly healthy socialized puppy. Nice family. This site has been in business for 15 years and this is all the complaints they have. Wow. Pretty good. 10,000 puppies are advertised on there on a yearly basis. So in actuality…. this is pretty good ratio.

  9. No issues

    The people that have posted these complaints on here, saying Lancaster is a scam, if u didn’t give anybody any money or have any money stolen from you, you did not get scammed.

    Some of the reviews on here are ridiculous. Some are legit. Your responsible for doing your own footwork to find a puppy. don’t blame an online classified puppy site for everything that you do wrong while purchasing a puppy and looking for a puppy. I’m sure everybody has the ability to look over their dog before they pay. It’s that simple. bad Health can be seen. Underweight can be seen. Lice can be seen. Demeanor and personality can be seen. Filthiness can be seen. Oh for the people that buy a dog claiming that they’re saving it, SHAME ON YOU…. then they come on here and post a negative review, that’s ridiculous. If somebody is doing something so wrong that you have to save a puppy you’re only creating matters worse by saving the dog. If someone’s place is so disgusting, you should leave. Do not buy their dog. Do not give them your money. Duh. All you did was play a role in them breeding more pups that need saved. Be bright enough to tell them straight to their face I’m not buying this dog because it’s disgusting and then walk away they might make some changes. Report…. Dont save & support.

    They’re obviously tons of perfectly good breeders that advertise on Lancaster puppies, first of all thousands of breeders advertise on there from 10 different states. It’s as if people think Lancaster puppies is the actual dog breeder. It’s a classified site just like your local newspaper. Anybody can advertise on it. Get some facts before you run your mouth on here.

    I tried to purchase a puppy on Lancaster last year but it didn’t work out, we got to the place and they literally sold the puppy when we were on our way there and they knew we were driving two hours. So that wasn’t very nice. We gave up at that point. The place that we went to was fairly clean and organized. They owned 20 dogs and were licensed and inspected.

    this year we went out again in search of a puppy, went to a few different places that were easy on the eye and, didn’t have any problems. We ended up purchasing a Morkie from the last place, we got to see both parents, we got a health record and health guarantee. It was in kylerstown Pennsylvania. They were not Amish or mennonite. Just a simple everyday family that had about 10 or 12 dogs with a nice clean inspected kennel.

    There’s lots of ads on there so click them, get in contact with the breeder, talk to them, email text whatever you do to communicate. But have clear communication and inspect your puppy before you pay for it. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. Make sure you get a health record and a health guarantee. Don’t save a puppy. Buy the one that was well taken care of so that those people can stay in business & not others.

  10. This report jives with the experiences of my family.

    This is obviously a puppy mill. My sister and I had a very similar and bad experience last fall (2020). Lancaster is a disgusting and immoral scam and all the people involved with this “business” should be avoided by the plague!

    1. Almost scammed

      Thank you for this info online, i looked into this puppy for-sale site and spoke to a lady name Sandra Marlin– which most likely is fake– and informed her i found all these claims against her, but she refused to admit any of these puppy mill claims. This site ruled-out ms [fake] marlin immediately for me. She disguises herself as a retired preacher woman now in puppy business (w/e….i moved on)! Why are the cops not policing this type of garbage; she claims they are in INDIANA which probably fake too, and calls themself BUCKEYE PUPPIES. Called her out on that one too; of course some lame hairbrained answer returned, so scratched the craziness immediately.

  11. LancasterPuppies.Com promotes scammers and puppy mills

    My husband and I saw an ad for a lovely Yorkshire terrier puppy. A seller by the name of Sandy Marlin from Madison, Indiana was selling at least 15 Yorkshire terrier puppies and most looked nothing like a Yorkie. Red flag #1. We found a cute 8 week old pup and contacted the seller Sandy Marlin. She preferred we have her husband deliver the pup to our home. We were that far so we didn’t mind. However, she demanded a $500 deposit and never ended up delivering the dog. She then got in contact with me when the dog was 20 weeks old and said he would be there next week. Guess what? Next week came and no dog again. When I checked into her background it turns out she is an online dog scammer. Basically, she has no dogs and is not a breeder. She just steals money from people claims it’s a “deposit”. We contacted to please remove the seller and her post because it is just a scam but they did not. Please be wary of anybody on that website. Also, the sellers from Pennsylvania are Amish puppy mills.

    1. Complaint

      This is NOT TRUE AL ALL.
      I am a retired Methodist Pastor and -I do not ask for deposits only if I hold the puppy for a period of time
      Till Carrier pick – up .
      Ok I was worn out -In Feb 18 – I will be 76 – so not young – I am a retired Methodist Pastor – Retired at 70 1/2 – Been raising puppies many years –
      This lady that complained bought 2 yorkies and they were from to different parents ( so two different litters) Some of mine have ears up & some do not … She thought they should look alike – She Picked the puppies out when they were 8 to 10 weeks old – and so when they got older they are different – Is that My Fault – no!
      I told her to bring puppies bad and I refund her money- But instead. she had to put this complain on Lancaster.. I am a reliable breeder – and have many many people that are very happy with their puppies. I have flown puppies to Calf-TX-FL-and I have had people come from many places & states to get their puppy they pick out and want to buy. When I meet the people to pick up their new puppy I take a picture – when Text it to them. i have a lot of pictures on my phone of couples & single people happy with their new puppy. I then send that picture to the buyer and Thank then buy buying one of my puppies. I still get Text and pictures/videos on many of the dogs I have sold -people keep in touch with me and even sometimes buys another one. Or a friend of family member will. So I am a reliable breeder – AND I will Not Scam anyone even though I have been..

  12. If I could give 0 stars I would.

    I purchased from a woman off the who sold me a dog who contracted parvo virus the day after I brought him home. The dog cost over $2,000.00 and the vet bill to save the dog cost me $6,000.00. Tried reaching out to the seller it appears she provided a fake name, address, bill of health, and never took the dog to a vet.

  13. My neighbor picked up a so called Goldendoodle and was told that the poodle that the Golden Lab was mated to was very small. “Her pup was not going to be more then 25 lbs”. MY neighbor is a small frail woman who probably weighs in at about 100lbs. The dog now 11 months old is about 70 lbs and 24 inches at the shoulder and is pulling this woman all over the neighborhood. She tried to return the dog to this so called breeder and was basically told to get lost. She is now trying to get this dog re-homed to a family who wants a big dog. This kennel is a racket who does not give a sht about what they sell to whoever.
