We came to Heartland Classics get a new puppy and came home with two!

We made the tough decision to put our 17 year old Maltese/Lhasa Apso to sleep after watching "Snuggles" health deteriorate to the point that she was obviously not enjoying life the way a pet should. She passed very peacefully July 10, 2015 at our vet with most of our family present. We had made the decision a few weeks before to not wait long after Snuggles was gone to start looking for a new puppy. The next day July 11, 2015 we drove from Fremont to Heartland Classics about 45 minutes away. We knew about their puppies through donations they have made to one of our charity events. When we showed up at 8 a.m. Saturday morning we were greeted by the owner. She had us down for a two hour visit. That's about what it took. We wanted to look at several puppies. All three were out running around in their office. One puppy was a little too young to leave yet so we would have had to wait a month or so to bring her home. Two puppies were about the same age, ready to go and really played well together. We all looked at each other and said "lets get them both"! Out the door we went. They have been with us for a little over two months. Very good puppies! From the first night we locked them in a back bathroom where they have quiet and lots of blankets to sleep on. They have never made much noise at all until about 6:30 a.m. when we get them up. The two together eliminate any crying or loneliness. Having a few issues with releaving themselves outside ALL the time! When they are up, most of the time it's high gear! They wrestle and play a lot! Like to sleep on air conditioner registers when it's hot out. They have gone swimming several times in our backyard pool. One trip to the local dog park. A firendly pit bull was chasing them. The puppies were quite intimidated. We are very pleased with the quality of the puppies as well as the way Heartland Classics runs their business. Anytime you raise puppies for a business it's naturally not going to be like home raised but this is pretty close. This is our first time for a purchase of a puppy here! Highly recommend Heartland Classics. They are very organized. We went home with a load of toys and everything we needed for new puppies all included in the price. The price they charge for their puppies looks kind of high. When you see how much they put into their business you see why they charge what they do. Very high quality puppies! We all miss Snuggles and the new puppies have helped to lessen the heartache. We look forward to al of the new adventures they will have with us. Jeff and Sue Engel
