We had an outstanding experience with Magnificent Mutts. We adopted our puppy, Gryffin, 2 weeks ago at the age of 10 weeks, and we could not have been happier with the experience. The foster mom who cared for him, Kathy, was terrific. She took great care of him, and she went out of her way to schedule time for us to go see him, she was patient with us, explained everything to us, and was wonderful to deal with. She really went out of her way to accommodate our schedule, and our need to see the puppy a few times before making a decision. Our puppy is in really good health, and has been a complete joy. He was used to being crated in the foster home, so he took to the crate really well here. The fee to adopt was not insignificant, but in addition to the fact that they have a lot of expenses in spaying/neutering, shots, etc., I think having a higher fee discourages people from adopting unless they are really serious about it.
Pros: Friendly, flexible, took great care of our puppy
Cons: Not inexpensive

I would like to update my previous open comment, the foster mom was great. I did not blame her in any way for the puppy having worms. I however do fully blame Linda for being so unkind to us during this unfortunate event. All we wanted was to take home this puppy after she was treated for the worms and we were completely denied this right!! We were to take her home that minute full of worms, drive 45 minutes on highway with risk of the worms continuing to possibly come out and then being pregnant I was to be the one cleaning this all up which ask any doctor is a huge health risk. I simply asked kindly for her to be treated and we would pick her up as soon as the episode was over. Linda told me absolutely not and that she would be adopted out to the next adopters after they treated her once. This is what broke my heart and made me very upset. Not just the fact that she had worms. I just thought asking to take her home once the episode was over was something normal to ask. We fell in love with the dog only to be denied any rights to her if we didn't take her home that second. This was the wrong part. Not to mention she will have to be treated again due to the fact that one treatment may not do it, which was fine with us but will the new adopters be notified of this??? I asked my other 2 local shelters and they seemed to be appalled and immediately said there is no way they would allow me to take the pup home with live worms, they would treat it and then allow me to take the pup home. This is what I was pleading with Linda to have the chance to do. Not sure why this was such a completely wrong request to her but she denied us of this. Once again as I clarify that just seeing the worms was not the issue, it was being denied any rights to take her home once she was treated like she should be. Plus as I said the fact that she needs to be treated more than once, we knew that but will the next people know that?
