Hello! I just wanted to let you know that we recently adopted our Cavapoo Hydie from your store. She is doing great and has really bonded with our son that has severe non- verbal autism. This is huge for him as he became scared of dogs after he started having seizures. As you can see they are best buddies now!
We were at your store on May-22,2018 and found our new forever friend. He's a Yorkshire Terrier, we named him Sasha. We just wanted to say thank you to Roy and Saihra for giving us such care with getting Sasha ready to come home with us. We've gotten his microchip I.D. card and he's been to the vet, he weighted in at 3 lbs. 2 oz. and Dr. Nicole agrees that Sasha is "a good one". We continue to feed him Royal Canin dry food with success. We will come down to the shoppe for visit when the weather cooperates and isn't so hot. Thanks again!!!!
We visit every time we come to Berlin- about once monthly. We purchased a Saint Bernard puppy here, and had a seamless transaction of an AKC puppy who was in excellent health with a stellar bloodline. Definitely not from a puppy mill like some others have indicated. Roy is very knowledgeable and helpful, as are the rest of his staff. I would definitely recommend this pet store to anyone who is looking to purchase a puppy.
Amazing establishment, with excellent customer service! Roy was so helpful and friendly. I could really tell he loved all the pets there and genuinely cared about getting them good homes. Would recommend him 1000 over!
On Easter weekend we came to your shope where we found the most beautiful puppy. When I held her in my arms, I said she is mine. She has been such a joy to us. Kelly is a very loving dog. She loves her vet and has all of her shots and has been spaded. Kelly lives in the country loves to go for long walks and ride on the Gator with her human Dad.
Kelly is very smart and catches on fast. She is house broke, loves to play fetch. Her favorite thing is to pickup a stone bring it in the house sit by chair in livingroom with showing it and then trading it for a bacon treat. She will spit stone at me and grab the treat. She is 12 # and thinks she is a pit bull watch dog. We love her so very much and Kelly is spoiled.

Got a Cavalier on October 3rd and love him to death. Would return again to get another pet.

This is the way all pet stores should be operated! It's a hands-on experience for all the guests and the puppies love it. The staff is wonderful and energetic and enjoy what they do. We came pretty close to coming home with a Dorkie (Dachshund/Yorkie mix) but our house is already "at capacity". But if you're looking for that special pup, there's not a better place we've been to.

Looked at a puppy on Saturday, decided not to buy it.... went back Sunday knowing they were closed but tried anyways, luckily someone was there picking up their new puppy and they let us in to buy ours!! she’s a super cute Wheaton terrier loved the folder with all the info we needed for her vet. Thanks Berlin Pets

Hi Roy, Just wanted everyone to know how pleased with Callie my teddy bear pup. Most like a human of any dog I have ever had. Healthy as can be, no problems what so ever words can't explain how much she means to me and am so glad that I chose your place to purchase my pup. She is now 8 months old and growing so fast she has a car seat and goes everywhere with me. I no the lord led me to your place. Thanks so very much.
Kitty White | October, 2017
Good evening Roy,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for my Yorkie, Remington (ie Mickey). The first time me and my husband came into the pet store I was amazed by how clean it was. How helpful the staff is. That was in October if 2016 when my husband said I could get my Yorkie.
Remington is a happy, healthy,loving puppy. He's been a blessing to our family.
I would highly recommend to everyone who comes in and looks at the puppies to know that they're well taken care of, healthy, and bundle of joy. The process to purchase a new puppy takes time but well worth it. Roy explained everything to us. Thank you,
Michelle and Chris Krankowski | October, 2017
Brenda Maxeiner I wanted to Thank Roy for all he has done for us & making our puppy experience a positive one as well, Thank You, We love our TOBY!
Brenda Maxeiner | March, 2017

Donna Trimmer | February, 2017
While on a knitting retreat with friends, we stopped at Berlin Pets. A French bulldog was running (actually bouncing like a bunny) around the pen in the middle of the room. I started crying and it was all over. Unable to have the puppy in our rental, I had to anxiously wait until our weekend was over to pick him up. "Tubes" was raised by the family at their house and is such a pleasure. He is so comical, always wants to be near you, bringing a smile to your face every time you look at him. Everyone should have a Frenchie. I would purchase another in a minute from Berlin Pets. It's a good thing I don't live really close. We already have 5 dogs.
Kimberly Hershfeldt | January, 2017
We picked up the newest member of our family last week a wonderfully happy Maltese. I want to say thank you so much for the amazing service and amazing care that you gave to him and all of your pets there. A special heartfelt thank you to Leroy for going out of your way to make this possible. May God bless you and keep you.
Renee Shaw | January, 2017
We bought a shih tzu puppy at the end of August. We love her,best lil dog ever,she is almost house broke completely already! The people there were very nice and helpful. Would buy another one from there in future. Will be back to visit. Thank you
Charlene Dyer | January, 2017
We got a Maltese puppy from Berlin pets about two months ago and he is been nothing but wonderful and happy and healthy. I was even late coming from about an hour away and I kept the store open for me to come get choose my puppy! The staff was wonderful . Thankful for our "Olaf"
Catherine Carpenter | January, 2017
We bought our Morkie from you in May she is smart, cute, sweet, wild, sassy and spoiled. She's a perfect fit for our family. Her best friend is her sister which is a beagle. We often say we couldn't have picked a better little girl. Thank you so much!!!
Melody | November, 2016
I just wanted to let you know we purchased "Sophie" last Tuesday and couldn't be happier with her! This Cava-Tzu is just the cutest! We are keeping her name Sophie--seems to fit and didn't want to change it! She is such a great little dog-she immediately bonded with everyone in the house. She's so friendly and outgoing. We took her to a vet in Sharon Center and she won the hearts of all the staff. She's in great health! Thank you so much for providing us with such a treasure-we couldn't think of life without her as she brings so much joy to our home!
Brenda Bartley | July, 2016
I just want to thank you guys for everything. I purchased a yorki poo Trixie ( which her name is now Bryn ) from you guys about 3 months ago! She is truly a blessing and has adjusted well to her new home! I just wanted to send you guys a few photos of her now and thank you for everything!
Erica Brooks | July, 2016
My Pomeranian puppy (Misha) is very healthy according to her vet checkup. It was a little scary buying a puppy out of state, but you made it easy. I truly appreciate you answering my questions and sending pictures. Rest assured little Misha will be very well loved and taken care of. I plan on being in the area in June and will stop in for a visit.
Christina Beck | April, 2016
Hello ... I apologize for emailing sooner. Just wanted to let you know that our little puppy is doing great! We bought her on 3/18/16 and picked her up the next day on Saturday 3/19/16. We took her to our vet that Monday, 3/21/16. Our vet said that she is very healthy. : Everyone that sees her just falls in love with her! Her name was Molly at your shop. We renamed her Leia Cuddle Spots. Thank you again

Hello Leroy, Dexter who now is know as Nitschke after Ray Nitschke who was a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers in the 1960's and one of my all time favorites. Anyway went to the Vet yesterday Belpar Pet Care and they said that they have had several of the puppies come there from Berlin Pet and all including Nitschke are in very good shape. Nitschke had a shot and the Vet looked him over very well and said he looked to be in excellent shape. Nitschke already has his next appointment in 4 weeks for his follow up shot. He is a very sweet puppy and has met a lot of new friends already he loves people and other animals and boy have we bound he will not let me out of his site which is great but I have to get him so he will not have the separation anxiety when I can't be around. He seems like he will be fairly simple to train which we will start on that Saturday. Plus he is doing pretty good with the potty training. Love my little puppy and will keep you updated on how he is doing. Thank you Leroy and thank you Berlin Pets you all are great.
Rick Nelson | February, 2016
To all the staff at Berlin pet store. My husband and I cannot thank you all enough. We lost our male Pom after having him for 12 years, he passed. We were so sad. We searched pet stores, Internet and breeders. We were getting a little discouraged. Then we contacted your store. Everyone was so kind and caring, we cannot express our thanks enough. We adopted Princess nka Molly. She is absolutely Beautuful and our vet said she is very healthy. I want to commend you all for providing such Great little puppies at a price that is Amazingly affordable. Molly is such a sweetheart and we are truly Blessed to have found her at your store. Thank you for keeping in contact with us and genuinely caring about our needs to find our Precious little girl! Thank you so very much!

Hello! I bought Leo (shih tzu) about 2 weeks ago and I just wanted to let you know that he has adjusted well. Our little 3yr old loves having a little buddy to play with. I drove 2.5 hrs to get him but well worth the drive. Thank you for allowing us to be his new family!!

Dear Vernon, My Mom is bringing me on a trip tomorrow and she is going to stop and show you how I have grown. I am registered AKC. I have had all my shots and etc. that are up to date, so I will be okay with the pups. I have a clean bill of health. I go to the home for the aged and let the people there pet and love me. I am still in school learning to be a grown up dog. (I am really just a puppy in training to be a grown up.) I am still learning good manners. I have had 3 different dog training classes that have 6 classes each in them. I am now going for Emotional Support dog for my Mom. I got groomed today and my vet thinks I am super with a very healthy bill of health. Everyone thinks that I am a very special boy. Love Robespierre Yoder Lichtig -----One year old.
We just love our little girl. Everywhere we take her she gets compliments as she is such a loving and well behaved pup. And she is just so cute as well. She got her first hair trim today and looks so adorable. Bonnie now weighs 5 lbs. She has slept through the night every night including the very first night and loves playing with our Jack Russell. We are so very happy to have her in our family. Thank you for raising such healthy happy pups!-Teddy Bear-

Thank you.

Thank you so much for our bulldog puppy (Blake). We renamed him "Bettis" after the football player. He is doing great,he has an appointment at the Vet on the 19th of January. I'm sure everything will be fine. Our other dog is taking awhile getting used to him,but he'll come around eventually. We are in the process of house training, which may take awhile since he seems to be very stubborn. Here is a couple of pics of him. Thanks again Vernon!!!!!
John Drake | January, 2015
Thank you for my beautiful children Ruger and bandit they brought a lot of joy to our life, we love them so much
Nune Woodward | December, 2014
Hi Vernon, I'm feeling thankful for a lot this year and one of them is our little bundle of joy we adopted from you a little over a year ago. We call him Buddy and he is the most loving family member we've ever had. My daughter is constantly picking him up and carrying him around like a baby. My husband spends lots of time with him and he eagerly awaits my arrival home from work every day. In fact he knows our schedule so well he will go and lay by the entrance way 10 min prior to our arrival. He never barks unless we ask him to and he greats every visitor with a wagging tail and affectionate kisses. He also likes to run in our yard and occasionally play with our neighbors dog. He is a rock star at the local groomers. Thank you for our loving super spoiled love muffin. We can't imagine a world without him. Sincerely,
Natalie Odumes | November, 2014
I just wanted to let you know that I have not forgot about sending you pictures of Winchester. I finally had a few minutes this evening and I attempted to download a few pictures and send to you; however, I sometimes have issues with the technology of the computers. Tonight is one of those nights. When my daughter, Ashley, is at the house I will have her download some of the pictures and send them to you. In the meantime, I wanted to let you know that he is doing just fine. Everyone loves him and he loves everyone he meets. The other two bulldogs have a good time playing with him. Prior to the snow and the cold temperatures we would go outside and let the 3 dogs just play until Winchester was tuckered out. (We have a privacy fence in our backyard and they get all the exercise they need playing in the yard with each other.) We had a pile of leaves in the year and the three of them would often go to the pile and play together. Winchester was quite shocked when I let him outside (I believe it was Monday morning) when we had the first snow fall - he did not know what to think. The snow and cold temperatures have put a damper on letting him outside to play though - we let him out only to do his "business" and then back in the warm house he goes. Thanks again - he is such a delight to have around.
Victoria Hoover | November, 2014

Dear Vernon, I Just want to tell you that our puppy is doing very well. she is nearly 3 lbs, full of life, playful, loving,and has brought us so much joy.

I hope to find the time to come down and visit w/ her sometime. (It is a 2 hour drive one way). Take care & God bless, sincerely,

Hi Vernon. Thank you for letting us adopt Sam. He is such a good puppy. We enjoy having him be apart of our family. We will definitely be back when we want to make our family bigger. Enclosed is a picture of how he has grown. Thanks again.
Carie and Ron | July, 2014
Hello. I've always grown up with a dog at my side, it developed into a part of my identity to have a four legged friend to take on walks and love unconditionally. Three years ago, while I was on vacation with family; My dog went missing and was later found dead. I felt terrible and as if nothing could replace him and became despondent and depressed. My mother and I headed down to Millersville, OH on a beautiful morning. The rain illuminated everything and the air was fresh. We entered Berlin Pets and the first puppy that caught my attention was a sweet-eyed Lhasa Apso. Excited I began to discuss the possibility of bringing her home to my mother. Now, the whole time this was happening kept noticing a rather energetic Dachshund with peculiar markings. I took him out of his cage and started the process of deciding between the two puppies. After awhile of playing with both the Lhasa Apso,and Dachshund. I decided that the Lhasa Apso was cute, but too docile for my lifestyle. I don't intend to make this a long letter. The month that I've had Edwin (What I named him) I finally feel like I have a place to put my heart. Since day one he has been the sweetest thing. He is extremely smart and knows how to "wait" and "drop it" already. I've decided to train him to become a therapy dog to visit people in the hospital. To share the happiness that this adorable little boy has given me. Thank you for allowing me to meet him.
Amy Maitino | June, 2014

I did have my vet down here check her out, and Dr Gallahorn pronounced her very healthy and said she thought the breeder provided reputable care. She estimated her adult weight to be in the 15 - 20 lbs range which is perfect..she weighs 4 lbs now. Thank you so much. I have great confidence that Lexi and I will have a long life together. She is beautiful.

Dear Vernon & staff, From the first time we visited Amish Country we came into Berlin Pets and fell in love with the store. The store is always spotless clean and puppy accidents have always been cleaned up immediately. We were so impressed with the store and staff that we had to purchase a puppy and then a few more. So far we have bought a Yorkie-poo, a Pomeranian, a Beagle, and our latest addition a Cavalier King Charles. We would recommend Berlin Pets to anyone seriously wanting a happy, healthy puppy to add to their family. Every puppy we have bought from Vernon and staff have been a wonderful addition to our family. A heartfelt thank you goes to the staff of Berlin Pets for taking such great care of all of the puppies in their care until homes are found for them. Thank you so much,
Lisa, Bill, and Children | October, 2013

Anytime we take them out , we get lots of compliments and everyone wants to know where we got them, we have given out cards and told them you are the best, and my sister got a dog from you in June 2013 and he is living in New Hampshire and doing great! Thank you again for the wonderful dogs

Vernon, As you can see, LuLu is growing into a beautiful girl! She now weighs 28 lbs, and her vet pronounced her "perfect." She delights everyone who meets her, and is adored by everyone who knows her. LuLu is fearless, curious and excels on the agility course. Her sunny disposition makes us smile all the time. We're starting to make real headway w/obedience training, even with her stubborn streak, which is an awesome thing :-). Not a day goes by that Del doesn't say, "Lulu's the best birthday present I've ever gotten!" Thank you!

This is your friend from Oak Harbor, on Lake Erie, and just outside of Port Clinton, Ohio. Last Sept. I purchased a cute Havanese, Tucker, from your store. He is truly such a wonderful family pet!! We love him so very much! I am wanting to purchase another Havanese to keep Tucker company and to have a friend to play with. Our older pet passed away and Tucker is missing her a great deal as we are too. Tucker has been a delight to train and is so special! Will you be having any Havanese puppies soon? Would you please let me know since we have to allow for the travel time and set aside a date for the day trip there and back home. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks,
Marcie Daft | July, 2013
Hi Vernon, I wanted to drop you a line and tell you that Bandit (your Domino) that we bought from you last month, is truly the sweetest dog I've ever known. He's still a puppy and ornery but has been so easy to train and has the sweetest temperament ever. I wanted to say thank you again and have told everyone who asks me to come to you for their pets. Have a great day, PS. When we got him he was 5.2 pounds and is 8.4 pounds now. Growing boy! :-)
Amy Hoover | July, 2013
Hi Vernon, I wanted to send you a couple of pics of Bandit (formerly Domino).. Thank you again for everything, we love our new puppy so much and my children were so ecstatic when I showed up with him. Thanks again,
Amy Hoover | June, 2013
We just wanted to take a minute to thank you and the staff at Berlin Pets for helping us pick the best puppy for our family. He has been nothing but wonderful from the minute we brought him home. We purchased our Yorkie Poo from you over Memorial Day weekend and he has been such a bundle of joy. He is such a happy little boy and makes us smile. We will certainly bring him by for a visit. Thank you so much for everything!

Vernon! Thank you so much for all you have done for us. As you know we picked up (tyra) on wednesday. We had a nice ride back to buffalo, new york and the dog did very well. She had one accident and vomited, but we cleaned her and linda up and linda held her allthe way home. She slept most of the way. When we got home, i left her in the carry bag and zoey and zach smelled her. I took out of the bag and they seemed to get along. That night i put her in the crate with the playpen and she winned for a bit, but i took her up to bed and she slept with us. She has slept with us now for two nights, but now is time for her to be in her house. She has bonded with both of them and she is doing well. Right now she is in her house napping. Thank your girls for taking such good care of her. All the best and we will stop in and see you the next time we come to berlin. Your friends

HI Vernon - on Saturday, the puppies got their first trim. I was told they did really well for it being the first time. Dante was a little hyper but all in all, they were good boys. I have attached a few pictures. So fun to be able to see their eyes and facial features. I wanted to thank you so much for working with us through the process of adopting Bo and Dante. After flying for a few hours, they were in very good condition and in good spirits. They received their next set of shots and an excellent health check by our Vet last week. We would highly recommend adopting a puppy from you.

Just wanted to say a year ago today my son and I purchased our little Yorkie-Poo C.J. form Berlin Pets. We are very happy with our little C.J. He is a very energetic and playful little puppy. C.J. makes us laugh all the time. My husband loves him as much as my son and I do, but I am not sure he would admit to that. I would like to thank you for bringing this little furry friend into our lives!!!
Paulette Agnes | May, 2013
Hi Vernon, Just wanted to let you know Benji is doing great! He is now the 4th puppy I have purchased from you. I appreciate your help & information each time I come in, even if its just to visit. Your puppies are of great quality & are all special. You come highly recommended from me when others are looking for that best friend. Thank you again I will send a picture soon!

Hi Vernon! I just wanted to let you know Lola and I are getting along really well! She starts puppy classes today and the vet says she is a perfect bully. She turned 13 weeks old yesterday. Thanks again!

I wanted to say thank you for bringing a bundle of joy in my life. We renamed Carrie the little westie we purchased Harley Quinn. She is healthy and very active. Wanted to express gratitude to you and your staff. Thank you

Vernon, We are so pleased with Heath, formally "Scotty", our little Yorkie/Bichon puppy. He has adjusted so well and was very easy to house train. He listens to our commands and has wonderful behavior. He is an adorable, joyous, and playful little guy. He is happy and healthy and we are blessed to have him as our pet. We cannot thank you and your staff enough for taking such wonderful care of our baby. Thanks,
Adam and Andrea Toth | March, 2013
Vernon and Staff: Just wanted to say thank you for our Jimmer. He was an amazing little guy when we walked in just to "see" the puppies 2 years ago. He bonded so well with all of us, we just had to bring him home. 2 Years later he is full grown at only 3 lbs. He is full of spunk and personality like you wouldn't believe. We came back in today for a visit and you just happened to have a little girl Toy Yorkie. Hopefully I can talk my husband into coming back for her... Like you said Vernon, if mom's happy, everyone is happy... We'll see you all soon!

We are so very pleased with our new addition! I'm sorry I missed your call and let your daughter know that if we can make it out again we will hopefully stop on a day that she is there and we will bring "Miya" aka candy with us. Thank you so much for our new little blessing she fits in w our family like she were born for us. It was truly fate's hand that made us stop that day. As an animal lover and all around careful pet buyer and owner you and your helpful staff will get nothing but the highest praises from me and my family. Buying a puppy from you is like getting the one on one knowledge and care of buying from an individual yet the selection of a puppy store. Thank you with all our hearts
The Holland's | January, 2013
Hi Vernon, Just wanted to send a quick note and let you know how happy we are with Muffin. She brings lots of joy and love to our family. The kids just adore her and we do too. She is such a sweet puppy. Here is a recent pic. Hope we can bring her for a visit sometime soon. Please share with Elsie and the other girls. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Jen Fugarino | December, 2012
To Vernon and all the staff at Berlin Pets, Thank you so much for selling us our puppy. We have changed her name from Payden to Oreo. She is settling in nicely with our family and has made friends with our lab Hershey. She is a wonderful, smart, playful puppy and we love her. Your staff was so kind and knowledgeable when we came in to purchase her and we will definitely look to Berlin Pets for our next puppy, as well as recommend you to our friends and family. Sincerely,
The Snider family | December, 2012
Dear Vernon, We purchased Paisley (female black Yorkie-Poo) in January 2012 and she has been an absolute joy to our family. Everyone who comes to our home wants to take her with them. We tell everyone to come to you if they want the best dog and the best service. God bless you and your business!
Jeff Shaull | December, 2012
Vernon and staff, We just want to tell you how pleased we are with our puppy we purchased from you on Tuesday. Cupcake, now named Molly, is doing just great. She is VERY playful and very loving. She's made herself right at home here. She's doing great with her housebreaking, going potty as soon as we put her out. She's eating better now but still cutting teeth. We crate her at night in our bedroom and she's never had an accident yet in her crate. Our two Chihuahas still don't think much of her but Chico, the pup we also purchased from you is starting to make up with her now. We are very pleased with both pups we purchased from you and will highly recommend you to our Amish and English friends. We will stop in the see you over Memorial Day weekend when we go camping in Holmes Co.
Ron & Marlene Noe Bubba, Chico and Molly Orwell | October, 2012

Just wanted to let you know that the Teddy Bear we purchased from you has beed wonderful. We named her Chloe Grace and she is the sunshine of our day. We love her and she loves us just as much in return. I believe her name there was Greta. We go her back in April. Here is a picture of her now, Thanks,
Patty and Ron Byrd | October, 2012
Hi Vernon, Just wanted to thank you for the phone call in regards to "Truffles" We decided to keep her name, its very cute, and fitting for her! She is So adorable and sweet!! We just Love her! So many people have offered (and begged) to buy her, so I am sending them your way! I never dreamed I would be coming home with a puppy during our visit to Amish country, but we just fell in Love with her! I just want to say Thanks for the pleasant experience, and for having such nice Quality puppies. Have a Blessed Day!!
Ebony, Brailyn, & Truffles | October, 2012
Hello, Gracie has settled nicely into our home. I have attached a picture of Gracie and her new friend Pearl. Thank you for having such a nice place to purchase pets
Edwina Varela | September, 2012
Hey Vernon just wanted to let you know we took Madie now named Maggie to the vet today and she is very healthy. Thanks to you and the girls for a wonderful experience. She is very playful and full of energy. The kids are wanting another one but the cat might have something to say about that. Will send you some pictures after she gets a little older. Again thanks and I will recommend Berlin Pets to anyone wanting a healthy and loveable pet. Thanks
James, Sandy, Corey, Tanner & Hayla McGraw | August, 2012
Hi Vernon, Laura, and Elsie!! First, I'd like to say thank you, thank you, thank you, for the new pups! I am so happy with them! They are the tiniest, cutest little puppies ever and we are overjoyed with how sweet and adorable they are. We named the Toy Poodle Khloe and the Maltese Bentley (Benny). Bentley is a little daredevil and loves the other 2 puppies I got from you in May. He chases our female Maltese Sophie around and bites her tail ,and our Shih-Tzu Mia, rolls on her back and just lets him jump on her belly. As for Khloe, she is quiet and shy and cuddles for hours. She likes to sit back and watch everything around her. My husband fell in love with her...he's a sucker for lazy dogs. They had a rough night the first night home...they barked and cried all night so needless to say I had a rough night also...haha. As soon as they are held they are fine and they lick your face off but they need to learn that bed time is quiet time and they will adjust soon enough. Thanks again for my 4 adorable fur babies!! We couldn't be happier!! If we ever decide to get a 5th puppy I will definitely give you a call ( I would NEVER buy a puppy from anyone else) and I will recommend Berlin Pets to anyone interested in buying a fur baby : ) I will send pictures soon!! Thank You Thank You Thank You,
Heather Wood and Family | August, 2012
Vernon, Thank you for your phone call inquiring about our new puppy. She is adjusting just fine. We renamed her Zoey. She had her visit with the vet today and was given the thumbs up. I have attached 2 pictures of her. One playing biting my husband and the other relaxing under the kitchen table. I will bring her in sometime when I stop in to purchase food for her. Again, thank you so much for such a wonder addition to our family
Kathy & Max Offenberger | August, 2012
Thank you for reaching out and checking in on "Princess Cutie". She is doing very well and getting adjusted to her new home. She has a brother "Brody" our Shi-Tzu. Brody is taking on the role of brother, and showing Cutie the ropes. Brody is house broken, and has been a big influence on Cutie when going to the potty. She has already figured out when she goes out and potty's, that she will receive a treat when coming in. We absolutely love her. She loves to sleep on your lap, and wants you to hold her like a baby, on her back. She will sleep that way for long periods of time. She especially loves to lay on your chest and sleep. We have purchased a small cage for her, and she is adjusting. She will wake you up about 7, and let you know she has to go and potty. We were a little concerned as we knew nothing about Yorke Poos. When speaking to family and friends, we were told they are hard to potty train. So far, there has been a few accidents, but we take her outside immediately after she eats and drinks, and then in 10 to 15 minute intervals. We were told by the sales staff that she will stay around 3 to 4 pounds, because she is a Toy Yorkie Poo. We hope so, as that is what attracted her to us. We have taken her to our vet and she has given "Princess Cutie" a clean bill of health. I quote "Overall health, CUTIE IS A LOVELY LITTLE FIND. She is fit and in excellent health; a pleasure to examine and have here in our hospital. We look forward to seeing her in three weeks for her next round of shots, Molly Buckley DVM". Braden our son has really taken to Princess Cutie, so much that we had to go shopping for her this weekend, buying her several outfits, bows, collars, and various charms. Attached, please find three pictures of Cutie and Braden, Cutie playing, and Cutie all dressed up in her new clothes. Again, thank you for reaching out. When visiting Millersburg in the fall, we will be sure to bring Princess Cutie by to see everyone. Best Regards,
Eric Bowling | August, 2012
Vernon, I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how our puppies are doing and to thank you again. We've been stopping in your shop whenever we are in the area since we got our first Chihuahua for our little girl from you over three years ago. We decided to get another chihuahua for "Tootsie" to play with. and the question of where to go to look for one was a no-brainer. We found the perfect new pup last week and you said you would keep her while we went out to eat. When we came back and picked her up you brought out a bulldog puppy that we played with and had to take her home with us as well. When the two new girl puppies, Piper and Caseih, visited the vet we were pleased to hear that they were in perfect shape with no medical problems. He commented on how well the bulldogs mother and fathers characteristics compliment each other and her great disposition. This just confirmed for us the care and effort that you put in to the animals you provide for good homes. Thank you again for being so helpful and be assured that we recommend you to friends and family looking for new puppies. Please feel free to give my contact information to anyone considering a bulldog puppy that may have questions, as Caseih teaches me things daily... Best regards,
Jim Huston and family | July, 2012
Hi Vernon, just wanted to write you and tell how well our Haides(was called tank) is doing. This was our second english bulldog purchased from you, first was our female Isabelle, we've now had Izzy for a year and a half and Haides for 8 months and their healthy as can be with no shortage of energy, ha. I'll continue to send people to you that are looking for another family member and continue to buy my four legged friends from Berlin Pets. Thanks again!!!!
Devin and Mallory | June, 2012
Dear Vernon Hello it's Stacy Schaffer. We bought our Yorkie poo Ashley, from you on Saturday. I'm sorry I missed your call, so I thought I would just email you. She is doing great! We changed her name to Dash. She loves to be outside with us and enjoys rides in the car. Getting along very well with everyone in the house, although she thinks she can take on the cat. She has her vet appt on Monday. We have been really impressed with how well she is doing with house training. She has been doing wonderful. She also goes to her crate at night and doesn't even make a sound til morning. We are so very pleased with her. Thank You so much for being so kind and working with us. Thank you for also making our puppy part of our life. We will send pictures when I get some. Thanks again
Stacy Schaffer and family | June, 2012
Vernon, Here is a picture of me and Sophie. I died her pink lol but don't worry...it's vegan. There are no chemicals in it that are harmful and it doesn't smell. It isn't permanent so it washes out after a few baths. I brushed the color on her and she sat so nicely for me just licking my arm. She goes everywhere with me and she pees and poops on her puppy pad. When she gets bigger I will take her for walks and get her outdoor trained but for now she is doing very well. I absolutely adore her. She has the sweetest and most playful personality. She tries to jump on the couch to sit with me and she can't quite make it yet so I pick her up and snuggle with her. She cries for me when I put her to bed because she is so spoiled but I put her in her bed and pet her until she falls asleep and then I sneak out like I do with my kids. It's pretty silly! I will send pictures as she grows : ) Thanks again for her!
Heather Wood | May, 2012

The Cunninghams | May, 2012
I just wanted to send you an email to tell everyone how much we are enjoying our Toy Yorkie puppy named Julie (now renamed Gracie). She was checked by our vet two days after we bought her from Vernon and he was amazed at how healthy she was, especially for her 1.9 lb size. She has really become a very important part of our family. We will be sending you a photo for your wall in the near future. Thank you for making our purchase such a pleasant and learning experience. We have recommended Berlin Pets to our friends and family!
Sandy Stephens | May, 2012
We just can't thank you enough for our sweet Havanese puppy, Gizmo. He brightens our lives every day. He is exactly what you said he would be. He is 6 months old now, is a little over 7 lbs. and is the happiest, healthiest puppy we ever purchased. I would whole heartedly recommend Berlin Pets to anyone looking for a new puppy. Your idea for using vanilla to allow our older dog to get used to Gizmo was amazing! Never would have thought of that! Again, our most sincere thanks for a beautiful, happy, healthy puppy. We love him with all our hearts! You will most definitely see us again! Your new friends,
Jim & Cathy Mick | May, 2012
Dear Mr. Yoder: I am writing you today to express my gratitude for your service. I have dealt with many breeders and various pet stores in the past and my experience with them has been average to below average. Their behavior and actions, for example just speaking on the phone, leaves a lot of room for improvements. We are very happy with our new Shih-Tzu puppy that we named Peanuts. We picked her up at the airport with no problems or concerns. She took the flight very well and we were glad to see such an adorable puppy in a pretty pink crate. My experience with Berlin Pets was truly an enjoyable one. I would certainly recommend your business to anybody. It is somewhat difficult to describe in words my appreciation for Berlin Pets but, I would say kind, courteous, personable, down to earth, low stress, professional, pleasant and polite. I would rate your business and service as "Top Notch." We found our experience with you and Elsie to be like a breath of fresh air. Sincerely,
Brad and Coleen Derby | April, 2012
Brad and I want to tell you Twilight (now called Peanuts) is absolutely beautiful. She "talks" she really is very vocal and makes these cute sounds is response to what she does & doesn't like. We both agree she's the prettiest, most perfect Shih-Tzu we've ever seen. We want to thank you for your kindness and also for being the most pleasant, polite breeder we've ever dealt with. Your service is wonderful. She took the flight very well and has fit in with us here. I've enclosed some photos for you, Thanks again so much,
Brad & Coleen | March, 2012
Hi Vernon! I purchased a female Morky named Belle from you in April 2010. She is a doll and my little baby girl. She is the calmest, most well behaved puppy and she's adorable! I am so pleased with her and Berlin Pets! Everyone that meets Belle insists that she cannot be only 11 months old because she is so well mannered! Thank you so much for my little girl, if I ever decide to give Belle a little sister or brother I will know where to come! Blessings,
Abi | January, 2012

Taylor Price | December, 2011
We cannot say enough about the professionalism and compassion at Berlin Pets. We were given the opportunity to take a puppy for a day to see if our grandaughter was allergic to him. Unfortunately, she was allergic to the sweet, adoreable Yorkie. Yes, Vernon allowed us to return the puppy and receive a full refund. If not for the allergy situation, we definitely would have kept him. These puppies are so well taken care of and the integrity of the business owner is wonderful. He could not have done more to help us possibly give our grandaughter her dream of a puppy. I would definitely recommend Berlin Pets if you want a healthy, loved puppy.
Kathy Baldner | December, 2011
My name is tyler schlauch and I bought a pretty handsome boy bulldog from vernon he is very healthy as is with all of his dogs and loves to play play play. We have a yorkie and they get along great. I will from now on go to vernon for my puppies. Vernon is very curtious and friendly. He is always open for questions and will give u answers. He is a very helpful person along with his family. Puppies are clean and well kept. I reccommend vernon and his families puppies to anyone.
Tyler | November, 2011
We planned a morning to go to breakfast and decided to stop in Berlin to look at puppies just for fun. After the puppy fell asleep in my arms and after Vernon spoke of how well taken care of the puppies were and how much love and compassion he demonstrated towards the puppies we knew we had to get her. After her first check up at the vet we realized how much time and dedication Vernon takes on too take care and raising his pups due to the vet's statement of how organized her medical history paperwork was and how well taken care of she was... I would highly recommend a puppy from Vernon. Our Izzy is now 12 weeks old and we could not be happier. Thank you Vernon!!!
Mallory | October, 2011

Mary Ann King | August, 2011
My daughter wanted a puppy for her birthday.& After much research, I took the trip down to Berlin pets to check out what they had.& I fell in love with a little Toy Yorkie immediately.& Her name was Princess.& After much debate, I left the store without her (because she was probably too small for the ages of my children: 4,6,8).& That night I just could not stop thinking about her and how well the dogs were taken care of at Berlin Pets.& They were all very happy, clean and every time one of them had an accident, Vernon was there mopping it up.& Two days later, after not much sleep, I went back to Berlin Pets.& I fell in love with another little sweetheart named Diamond.& She was a Yorkie Poo.& She wouldn't get much bigger than a Toy Yorkie, but she was adorable and we connected!& I never put her down.& Vernon set me up with a crate, food (which lasted us a month) and a care guide.& He was so helped, I even called a month and a half later with a question and he was eager to help (forgot what type of dog food she was eating).& The kids love her, we renamed her Lucy.& She is so smart and is perfect for our family!!! Thank you Berlin Pets for our dear little Lucy!!!
The Mauser Family | June, 2011
Just a little note to thank you and your staff for the terrific service you gave us when we purchased our two puppies. It was good to see you and your staff taking care of the puppies and waiting on the customers we purchased two puppies from you now and both are doing great. Because of your exceptional service we will be back in the future. In the mean time keep up the great work and tell your staff and family hello from the Browning family in Liberty,WV. Looking forward to visiting you soon. Sincerely,

Hi Vernon It is Victoria Casey (live in Virginia) I just want to forward a picture of the Yorkie we purchased from you on May 26, 2011, when we came to Ohio to visit family. Tim's dad and mom brought us to the pet store because they has purchased from you as well. His name was Riley but we have named him Bentley. Do you remember him? He has been a joy to us. He is so cute. He loves his picture being taken. I will forward more pictures of him soon. Take care,
Victoria Casey Tim Ponikvar | October, 2010

The Kitchen family | July, 2010
Vernon, I just want to let you know that Tucker is doing very well. The vet said he is a very healthy puppy and that everything is good. We just love him. He is such a joy and a very welcome addition to our family. Thank you so very much for letting us have him. Will send you a picture as soon as I can. Took several with my phone but for some reason I have a hard time getting them to send as an attachment. Thanks again for letting us have Tucker. You will never know just how happy you have made us to have him.
Linda Elbon | May, 2010
We are a dog loving family Several years ago my daughter had to stop at Vernon's just to look. As a result of that stop our family now has 5 shih-tzu's.
