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"...

I was very happy with the service and attention I received from Diane and her entire staff at the Happy Woofer. My little male Boston Terrier, Harley was well cared for, loved and healthy upon bringing him home Memorial Day Weekend.  I visited the kennel every weekend spending 3-4 hours there with my little guy shortly after his birth. The kennels were always very clean and every dog appeared extremely alert & healthy. I was very pleased to see this for myself as it made me feel more at ease about my decision and choice to purchase from a breeder.  Diane was very informative and kept me posted on Harley's progress weekly, even sending me photos upon my request. I was very impressed by the attention and time Diana and her entire family put forth in caring for all of these dogs, not to mention, all of the other animals on her farm. It was abundantly clear to me that she cared very much for their overall health, happiness and well being. I would, without hesitation recommend Diane and The Happy Woofer to anyone looking to bring a little joy and happiness into their lives.

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.

Hi Diane,                                                              5/14
Our little Zoey is such a joy!  She is about 5 lbs and adorable!  Everywhere we go someone asks us what kind of dog she is and where we got her.  Hopefully you have been getting lots of calls, or at least website hits!

Her color is still changing.
Zoey is a bundle of energy and keeps Bob and I on our toes.  Now that we have nice weather she is enjoying long walks around the neighborhood.  I am amazed at how far she can go and not get tired.  Zoey is also a love-bug and when the day is done she loves nothing more than to lay on Bob’s or my lap while we watch tv.

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!!

I recently have purchased a vizsla puppy from "The Happy Woofer" and could not be more pleased with my experience. Not only is the facility clean, the animals well taken care of, you are also updated with photos to see the growth of the puppies. I spoke with Diane weekly about our new addition and the kindness didnt end there, even after I picked him up, I still have had a relationship with the seller. I recently took "Max" to the vet and they were very pleased with the records of the vaccines and deworming that my puppy had received prior to my purchase. Diane was a great help from the beginning and all that ask me about my purchase, I recommend them to The Happy Woofer! Thanks for everything!

We could not be happier with our beautiful, tiny Morkie, Piper (Krystal).  She is absolutely gorgeous and has the best personality ever!  She just makes us laugh every single day.  When we arrived at the Happy Woofer, we were greeted by Diane's grandson, who led us to the kennel.  There, we were met by Diane and her granddaughter.  Piper just had a bath and was running around the grooming room.  It was love at first sight!  After only about an hour doing paperwork, we were on our way home with our girl.  Diane answered every question we had, and we felt very confident we were adopting a well-socialized, playful 8-week-old puppy.  She went to the vet the very next day and received a clean bill of health, weighing in at 1 pound, 11 ounces.  Our 6-year-old Bichon, Charlie, loves her already, and they play together very well.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Happy Woofer to anyone in search of a puppy.  Diane is definitely in love with all her dogs, and her dedication to their well-being is top notch.  We just love our Piper, who has become my shadow.  I believe she's happy, and we're over the moon.  Thanks, Diane, for being such a responsible breeder.

 Just wanted you to know that we love Gizmo!!! He is the best puppy!!! He does really well with our family and has made our household complete. He has been doing wonderfully going outside and does well with our other family pets. He is so playful, loving (has to greet us individually), affectionate, and adorable. We are so blessed to have him as part of our family. Thanks again for taking such good care of him and preparing him with the Pish Pad. Sincerely, Kim, Wyatt, Kade, and Saige

Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our new addition Jacey (formerly Tessa a Yorkie). I have never had such a small dog and I am glad we had our many conversations on their care. I want to thank you and the staff. Your kennel is clean and well run and that makes all the difference in a happy, healthy dog. Our visit their when Jacey was a month old made my daughter's day. She would have had me adopt more than one!
The first two weeks have been alot of work, but, Jacey is adjusting well....and so are we. The vet visit was great. She is healthy and getting bigger....a great big 2 lbs!

Thanks so much,

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

Well we have only had our precious “Sweet Lucy Lee” for a period of a little over 2 weeks, but she is already the love of our lives.  It is interesting because getting a puppy was my husband’s idea for our daughter and I was not thrilled about it.  However, now I can’t imagine life without her.  She is already a very big part of our family (however little she is).
Kate at The Happy Woofer was extremely pleasant to deal with.  She worked with us stopping by every other day to check on the progress of Sweet Lucy Lee and was always very amiable.  We got to take Lucy Lee home on Christmas Eve and Kate was in constant contact with us to keep us posted.   
 I would recommend The Happy Woofer to anyone looking for a new family member as that is what we truly gained this Christmas. 
Thanks –
Denton, MD
