This place seems to get a bad rap on some other sites because they sell puppies, but I do not have anything to complain about with this place. My wife and I bought a pomeranian from here about a year ago and she is the best dog we have ever owned. We live close to here and the employees are happy to see me and Betty when we come in to buy stuff. I have recommended some friends to buy dogs from them and they seem to be happy with their dogs also.

Pets On Lex has been reported to the ASPCA.
This place should be shut down. All the animals look sick, crusty eyed, listless, stressed out. Many of the puppies were chewing on their water bottles as they're teething but instead of being able to gnaw on a toy, something made for teething, they're cutting their mouths open and breaking what teeth they have.
The staff is rude, and unconcerned for the MANY animals in their care. No doubt their puppies are from puppy mills.
Please do not buy your pet from this store.
The only reason i've given it a 1 star, not 0 star, rating is because this site won't allow you to publish a review without a star rating. This place is shameful.

The positive reviews must come from the owner or his friends because this store is deplorable. The owner should go to jail for how he treats animals in addition to being extremely rude.
If you buy a dog here, you are supporting the very cruel industry of puppy mills. NO celeberties buy their pets here (as stated in a previous review). These dogs come from puppy mills and all look sick with coughs and crust in their eyes. By buying a dog here, you are creating space for another dog to come in from a mill and perpetuating the viscious cycle of animal cruelty.
NEW YORK CONSUMERS, PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH ON THIS STORE . READ THE CUSTOMER REVIEWS. DOGS ARE SICK AND OWNERS HAVE SPENT THOUSANDS GETTING THEM THE HELP THEY NEED.

My girfriend and I bought a mini dachshund puppy from here this past summer and we were a little overwhelmed when we first got the dog home. My girlfriend probably called the store with questions about 10 times during the first 2 days. Lisa helped us every time and gave us some housebreaking tips that made things much easier. I still go in every once in a while to say hello and buy some stuff when I am in the area. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends who are looking for a puppy.
If you are looking for a dog, do NOT come here. The workers here are arrogant, and mean. The puppies here look clean, but are too big for their small cages. My family was looking for a dog, and the man who was there was totally impolite and wouldn't answer any of my questions. I politely asked him if my children could pet the puppy we were interested in (a Shih Tzu), the man yelled at us, and ordered us to leave the store. The puppies aren't socialized, and judging from this employee's attitude, are abused. Don't buy from here unless you want to save dogs who are suffering from neglect.

Listen, people either love them or hate them. For my wife and I, we came here one time a couple of months ago and almost baught a puppy. Then we decided to look into breeders outside the city. The dog breeders are either crazy, rude, arrogant, overpriced, or a combination of all.
Elyss helped us, and two months after our firtst visit we went home with a great Weimaraner puppy.
The entire staff was friendly.
Believe me, we visited many breeders and the conditions at most of them were deplorable. This shop takes care of their inventory.
ALSO, we contacted the Kansas breeder of the Weimaraner we purchased. They are absolutely reputable and are professional family breeders.
We love our dog and are proud to say Pets on Lex helped us with the adoption process.
Most negative reviews come from people who have either never purchased a puppy before, or people who just walked by the store and decided to express their views on the web.
A good place. Safe to pourchase your puppy here. They are professionals.

this is the worst store for dogs in NY, we bought a puppy on 11/29/09 and when we got home we realized the dog had fleas,she was itching like crazy so we went to riteaid and bought flea shampoo. it worked but the itching continued so we brought her back to pets on lex,the older gentelman who works there denied the dog had fleas and was very unpleasant,he tried to make me feel like i made the whole thing up,why would i do that? the story gets better, we took the dog to the vet and the fecal test came back positive for giardia which is an intestinal parasite and could kill the dog at her age. i called and tried to be nice but both people i spoke to named bob and jack were complete a---holes and answered me discontent with words like""SO"" and finally i was told to ""DO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO"" and was hung up on.

I think I would recommend Pets On Lex to someone looking to get a puppy. I purchased a Havanese puppy Trevor here about 6 months ago and I love this little guy! He was expensive, but I think he was worth it. He is very playful, smart and has a great personality. I had a good experience with Lyssa at the store. She gave me pretty much everything I needed to train the puppy and was available for me when I called with questions and issues about Trevor. I still buy most of my supplies there because it is convenient for me, but I do go to petco when I need to save money on some things.?
