Hi Diane,

We are so happy with Rosie (formerly Brandy) our new Papillon puppy. We were a little hesitant to pick a puppy online but after talking with Diane we were more comfortable. Since she was a Chrismas present it was so nice of you to send an updated picture before the holiday so we could show her to her new mom. She was thrilled Santa was getting her a baby of her own. We came to visit her at 5 weeks of age. We were impressed with the kennel, it was clean and all the dogs looked great. We got to meet her mom and dad. If we could of we would have taken her brothers and sister too (lol). Everyone we met was very nice. We even got to watch a puppy being born. At 7 weeks we came back to get her. She had a bath and the paper work went quick. We took Rosie to our vet and she was given a clean bill of health. He was impressed at how healthy and happy she was. She is now almost 11 weeks old and weighs 3 pounds(hopefully you can open the attachment).She is happy and healthy and very spoiled. We have two older papillons and Rosie just follows them around. We think she is the smartest puppy we ever had. We would highly recommend The Happy Woofer to any one looking to add to thier family . Over all it was a great experience.

Thanks so much,

Peggy McAlister and family

The Happy Woofer "Testimonials"...

Hi Diane,  I have my baby 2 weeks today and I just feel the need to thank you.  My little Tinkerbell is so precious that I feel like I won the lottery.  She and Bandit (the other Papillion that I got from you) love each other so much and play together so cute that they are just delightful to watch.  She loves my cats and everyone that she meets.  I couldn't imagine a more perfect puppy.  Once again, I thank you for being such a great breeder.  Sandy, from Millsboro, De.

The Happy Woofer was referred to me by a friend.  I was looking for a Westie and they had just purchased a puppy from The Happy Woofer.  I love the website, I still glance at the new puppies even though I now have the cutiest most adorable little girl.  When I saw a litter was due in November, 2008. I checked out the website several times a day.  As soon as they were born, I sent a message requesting to visit Daisey (I choose the puppy by her name).  The kennels were very clean and Kate my contact was very friendly and knowledgeable.  I still keep in contact with Kate regarding Daisey plus send pictures as she grows.  I have already recommended the Happy Woofer to strangers who fall in love with Daisey on site.

After losing our precious 12 year old Shih Tzu, Violet, who we think came from a Pennsylvania Puppy Mill we were so happy to find the Happy Woofer.   Diane really cares about all the dogs and it is much more than just a job for her unlike most places who are only in it for the money.  We reserved Dahlia (formerly Gem) a Shih Tzu puppy, when she was only 4 days old.  She had been born on our  Violet’s birthday.  Diane sent weekly pictures of Dahlia including pictures on my daughter’s birthday.   We stopped by twice to see the puppies and their Mom and Dad.  All were well cared for and the staff was more than happy to show us around.  Right before we were to pick up Dahlia we decided one was just not enough so we decided to reserve Honey Rose (Rosie- formerly Bella) another Shih Tzu puppy and Dahlia’s sister.  After picking them up we took them to their 1st vet appointment.  Our vet was ecstatic about how healthy they were and hearing how the Happy Woofer was run.  Weeks after getting the sisters we still text Diane questions and she is more than happy to help.  We would definitely recommend the Happy Woofer to anyone looking for a happy, healthy, beautiful dog or 2.

My family and I brought home Ginger Oh'Snap (breeders name Roxy) one of Chances and Birdie puppies late August. She is now almost 9 months old and the most amazing member of our family. She enjoys cuddles, food, ball, the dog park, and did we say food? HAHA. We all would like to thank everyone at The Happy Woofer. You all have made our lives so much more enjoyable!

Hi Diane,
Well there is so much I am happy to share with you. For starters your welcoming personality gave me the incentive to drive two hours to meet my Coco the first day I spoke to you. Once I got to your establishment I was so amazed with the little staff you have on how clean and welcoming it was from the point of walking in to the dog homes area. All the dogs are so well cared for and you can tell how much you and your husband pour your souls into what you do. You are a great group of people and I am truly grateful to you all for the most important reason--you introduced me to my baby Coco Chanel --who now weighs 2 pounds-- and is the cutest shorkie on the east coast. If we decide to add to our family in the future I will be knocking at your door. Thanks again.

Dear Diane,

My son and I want to take a few minutes to thank you so much for our new little Miniature Schnauzer, Archie. He is a joy and is exactly as you described to us. We had visited a couple of kennels and were disappointed at their cleanliness, their staff, and the overall "sadness" of the puppies. Your facility was spotless, the puppies were clean and very well socialized. We were also impressed with the knowledge of your staff, they knew each and every puppy by name. Our vet has assured us that Archie is in perfect health and obviously was well cared for. We have recommended The Happy Woofer to a couple of our friends and will continue to do so. Thank you so much again.

P.S. When buying some food and toys at Archie at Pet Smart the cashier was also familiar with your kennel and had only good things to say.

Most Sincerely,
Debra and Nathan

The Happy Woofer has a very clean facilty which all the dogs are well taken care of and the health warranty, that comes with every purchased dog, gives the customer full satisfaction of the puppy you take home. The breeders and groomer at the Happy Woofer are dedicated to their animals, and love each and everyone of them. I adopted a Japeke named Chloe and I couldn't have asked for a better puppy. She is in great health condition and I give full credit to the people at Happy Woofer who have taken care of all their puppies since day one. Now after adopting an adorable little girl have recommended the Happy Woofer to many people located in and around the Harrington aera. Thank you Happy Woofer !

If anyone is looking for a furry friend to be a part of their family, well you have found the right breeder "The Happy Woofer".  From the start when I emailed them regarding a Shih Tzu pup "Bug" (his name is now Dunkin) I felt  and knew I was dealing with a very professional breeder.  When we arrived we met with Katie, Diane and Mike and we felt we were visiting with old friends.  The kennel is kept very clean and well maintained.  The animals were all very excited to see us and gave us a grand welcome to The Happy Woofer!!  Katie gave us time to decided on what pup we wanted to take home. . . it was a very difficult decision.  We really wanted to take them all home!!  After a period of time, we decided to take "Bug" (Dunkin) home and to be a part of our family.  Our other furry family member "Lola" (rescue spaniel mix) thinks she is the mother of Dunkin!!  Lola is showing the ropes to Dunkin and working on his manners!!  Our first visit to the Vet went well. . . the Vet stated Dunkin was in good health and was a very healthy Shih Tzu.   I would recommend The Happy Woofer to anyone looking for a furry friend!!

This is Terry and we were very pleased with the Happy Woofer.  We found the facility to be very clean and well run.  All the dogs seemed to be well cared for and happy.  We purchased a peek-a poo named Onyx.  We have changed his name to Scooter.  We are very happy with him.  Of course he is a little devil right now but he is just a baby and that is expected.  Actually he is learning the "potty thing" pretty well. 
I have been recommending your business to anyone who will listen.  We will send you some pictures of Scooter as he grows.  I wanted to say how nice and knowledgable Kate was also.  She really was helpful with our questions.

This is a wonderful place! In Dec. I purchased my new baby a pomeranian "Phoebe". Krista, Diane, and Mike were superb. Krista made sure she answered all my questions even days after we left. She didn't get annoyed by my millions of emails I sent her, she answered all of them w/ patience and willingness. The place was clean, the dogs were well kept, happy and friendly. My little guy has the best personality and has adjusted very well to his home and surroundings. He is such a pleasure to have. I thank everyone at M&D for taking such good care of him and the rest of the crew. Krista called me a day or so later to check on him and how he is doing. That right there showed me that she cared not about a buck but about the well being of the animals. I love this place and I would recommend it to anyone 100x more!!
