I learned about this store from a friend who passes it every day, so I went in.Imagine my disguest when I saw that every puppy in the store came from MISSOURI, the PUPPY MILL Capital of the country.I looked at a couple puppies anyway and found them to be skimmish, did not like being held, frail... it appears as though they had not enjoyed the EXTREMELY important early socialization that ANY GOOD BREEDER starts immediately after a puppy is born. THese fragile little pups demonstrated all the classic PUPPY MILL characteristics that you would NOT see in a puppy from a reputable breeder. What a terrible terrible shame that this kind of "business" is still allowed to continue. If you are looking for a puppy to complete your family, go to your LOCAL SHELTER... PLEASE!

I recently purchased what I thought was a pure bred puppy at Best in Breed Kennels, Paramus. Expensive mistake!WHO would EVER pay $1400 for a MIXED breed! While the puppy is adorable, she is NOT the PURE BRED WEST HIGHLAND WHITE TERRIER dog that was presented to me and what I paid $1400 for! My Vet confrimed she is not Pure Bred, the trainer at Petco confirmed she is not PureBred, people we meet along our walks all question what kind of dog is she.... and so on. I have compared it to purchasing a Mercedes and having a VW delivered.... now I like VW's, have owned my share of them in my life, but this time, I just wanted to own a Mercedes. I have tried to contact Best in Breed, but I have yet to receive even a courteous phone call from the owner! I have been beating myself up since I experienced my lapse in judgement purchasing a dear puppy from a Puppy Mill vendor.... and I know better, that is what is killing me!!!! Has ANYONE else had a similiar problem with them? They clain to get their puppies from only local breeders they know, but the birth certificate indicates a Missouri kennel (do you smell puppy mill?).From this day forward, I will ALWAYS support my local shelter and rescue dog groups..... ALWAYS! ... DO NOT BUY A PUPPY from BEST in BREED KENNELS, Paramus, NJ.
