New York City is a very dog-friendly place, as long as you follow all the leash laws and clean up after your pet. If you're moving to New York City or if you've just left a place that didn't allow pets and moved into one that does, you can find a puppy of your very own.
You'll enjoy taking your little friend out for a walk and meeting all the other dog lovers in the city. And, because you chose from one of the many reputable places in the City, you'll know you've got a healthy, happy puppy.
Take a short trip to 2539 Ocean Avenue, Brooklyn, and visit Puppy City. The showroom has yorkies, maltese, English bulldogs, shih tzus and other breeds. Puppy City has been in business for several decades and prides itself on being one of the cleanest puppy showrooms in New York City. In addition, Puppy City takes special care to make sure each of its puppies is as healthy as they can possibly be.
This is a website that features pictures and descriptions of puppies for sale. All breeds are available, ranging in age from not yet born (these are called planned litters) to approximately 14 weeks. Visiting this website is a little bit like browsing through a catalog and choosing your puppy, then making arrangements for you to either pick it up or have it delivered to you. The website is easy to navigate, though, and you can ask any questions you may have concerning obtaining your new puppy, so don't be concerned by this rather unique method of "puppy shopping".
Located on Long Island, at 2039 Hempstead Turnpike in East Meadow, this club offers you a very easy way to view the different breeds of puppies (including Akitas, which the International Kennel Club was responsible for introducing to the United States). When you go to the website, you'll see the available puppies, in alphabetical order by breed. If you're looking for a particular breed of puppy, you simply scroll down until you find that breed category then choose your new friend.
You'll know you're getting a good puppy, too, because the puppies have been bred to be as gentle and trainable as possible. They do not come from "puppy mills" but rather from breeders who have met the exacting standards of the International Kennel Club.
If it's always been your dream to own a Chihuahua puppy, you should check with the Top Breeders of America first. They only breed Chihuahua puppies, and only purebred ones, so you know you're getting a true little Chuhuahua. The breeders are located in different areas in and around New York City, so you should have no trouble making arrangements to pick up your tiny new friend. You can also get advice from Top Breeders of America on how best to raise your little darling so he'll have a long healthy life. After that, it's just a matter of enjoying him to the fullest.
