The Puppyland Corporation is what you might call South Florida’s Wal-Mart of puppy breeders. It is a one-stop shop with its own network of local and international breeders who supply it with the cutest puppies this end of the peninsula that can be used as the family’s newest play pal or as a champion in training. Then those precious pups are sold in one of Puppyland’s three South Miami locations. Each puppy purchase comes with a certificate of health, registration papers, shots, dog training, one vet visit and either a 14-day warranty or a one-year warranty ensuring your pet’s health. While prospective pet parents are there, they can pick up the necessary toys and supplies to entertain and care for the latest addition to the family.

Two girls from South Florida joined forces to create Pen Puppies, a Fort Lauderdale-based home business that specializes in breeding teacup yorkies and mini English bulldogs. These puppies are mainly for recreational use but they can be used for future breeding as well. All puppies come with their registration papers, health certificates, shots and a one-year warranty, but the new pet owner is responsible for spaying and neutering. Call for an appointment to view the puppies in person and Patty and her partner will be happy to take care of you.

This Cat Fancier’s Association (CFA) registered, home-operated, mom-and-pop shop houses only sphynx breed cats and it offers both cuddly kittens and retired show cats.

Odalys Hayes stumbled upon her passion in 1980 when she bought a chow chow breed dog to protect her infant child and herself while her husband was working nights. From then on, Hayes has gone on to become the only South Florida breeder of chows and her dogs have competed and won over 40 competitions domestically and internationally. After their championship days are through, Hayes retires the adult dogs and adopts them out. The cost of the dog is free but Hayes insists on $500 being placed on hold with the vet for future veterinary bills to ensure the safety of the pet and the quality of the owner.
