Just Puppies began in 1997, as a family run business. At this time, Tyler Thomson established the first shop in Orlando, Florida. The store was a success, and a year after opening its doors, Tyler opened a second shop, also in Orlando.
Realizing that there was a need for honest, caring and quality-minded pet shops, Tyler's brother, Mitch, then opened his first shop in Laurel, Maryland, in 1999. Again, the shop was a big success, and so Mitch opened the latest store, in Towson, Maryland.
Just Puppies not likely ever grow into a large-scale type of chain store... they prefer to be hands-on, interacting with their clientele, and establishing long-term relationships with their breeders. It is their belief that educating people about the care and long-term welfare of their new pets is essential.
Just Puppies buys their puppies from USDA and state registered breeders only. During their purchases, they always have a veterinarian present, to supervise, and ensure that only healthy animals are selected. The animals are transported in their own climate controlled vehicles, to ensure their maximum comfort and safety.
"When purchasing a puppy, you must be prepared for a long-term commitment. Research the various breed temperaments to suit your needs, and please remember to spay or neuter your animals." - The Thomson family.
