Here is an article about the Pocket Puppy surprise!

So three weeks ago, we walked into your store and waited in line for what seems like forever!!! A little bit of back story, I “gave notice” all the shelters and local FB groups in my area wayyyy back in November and then about 3 reminders afterward that I was looking for a non-black Pomeranian less than 1 year old and that I would be dumping up to my entire tax refund on a “pet store” dog if no good adoptions came about. Me personally, I have no problem with pet stores, of course if I could find a less-expensive route, the smart choice would be to take that path. Nothing came to fruition, so there I was with my longtime girlfriend Staci and after totally misjudging your Chicago subway system, I swear we walked 2 miles (or more) to get to your store at a balmy Windy City 40°F. Brrrrr!
We waited (impatiently) for our turn to check out your pups. I instantly fell in love with your female Pom, number 15-129. But she was a LOT of money for me. I told Staci “no let’s go.” She started crying. My defenses were absolutely crushed. That’s when I called on you and said “let’s talk money.” You were REALLY busy with a gadzillion customers so it took twice before you realized I was absolutely serious, lolz let’s talk MONEY! 
So if you recall a few weeks ago, here’s the “after” story. The taxi cab went GREAT actually!! It was only $15 bucks to bring us back to Michigan Avenue and the driver was very awesomely receptive to the dog; he got a $10 tip for being awesome! So we left Chicago and went back home to Champaign, IL area.
We did NOT make it back up there to your vet for the congenital guarantee, but it is what it is, I’m fine with that, I have no choice at this point.
I did want to at least let you know though that she has STOLEN OUR HEARTS!!! She is everything to us!! Attached is a nice shot that you can use for whatever purpose (as long as it’s PG-rated hahahaha!!). She really is a weight on our shoulders and yes, she is sticking her tongue out, lolz! I lived in Japan for 7 years and I LOVE Japanese names, always have. As such, we named her Miya (MEE-yah). She’s getting good at responding to her name and as you can see, we are doing GREAT with car rides!! She’s a touch aggressive with tug-of-war, but we are doing a LOT better with mouthing and fingers versus chomping entire human noses off! Haha! When we first brought her home, she ended up with a touch of diarrhea for a couple days but that cleared up quite nicely. Our vet down here gave her a good thumbs-up and we got a shot of DHLPPC+Worm if that abbreviation makes any sense to you. We are due more shot(s) on 3/27. Not that you need to know, but we did come to your store and go kinda hastily and if I were the owner, that would make me nervous. I just want you to be reassured that we are taking the best care of her as we know how and she’s taking care of us. 😁😁 No problems eating or drinking as of now (knock on wood) and she is still getting her tube of high-calorie nutritional gel (pea-size) three times daily. She wakes up about 4-4:30amEVERY morning ready to play with 500% energy locked and loaded and ready to go, being vocal the whole time!
So much to talk about in only 3 short weeks, but never enough time! Just know that Miya is doing great and we would not trade her for anything!! This picture (almost) proves that when I said that Miya would be left alone for probably LESS than zero hours a week, I wasn’t kidding. Many thanks to you and your staff!!! 

Michael Schwartz

We just wanted to say how happy we are with our two babies! We got Perry (on the right) three years ago from Pocket Puppies and could not be happier with her. Last week we went in to get a baby brother for Perry. She loves Keanu and he completes our family!

Heidi Canchola

My name is Minnie, and my Mommy came and took me home almost 3 years ago from the boutique. She is so thankful that she found me, she originally came for a tea cup Morkie, but of course, I stole the show! And thank goodness I was there! My Mom lost her Mom months prior, and she was so lost (She was an only child) I insisted on her getting up and facing the day, I started with little things like feeding me and making sure I was OK! As I got older, I helped her to talk to her loved ones, because of course she couldn't help but brag how adorable I am.
Even though, I could never take the place of my Glam-Mommy, I am another soul that will love her unconditionally!
Minnie Meh White
I just want to sincerely thank Pocket Puppies for helping me find my Me-Me (MINNIE)
she has brought joy in my entire family's lives! When I got her the lady told me that because she was so small the she would be delayed in a lot of things, well please let her know, she was incorrect, this princess is so SMART and AMAZING, to be just 2 1/2 pounds!!!

Lou Santello

This is Molly! My family walked into the Pocket Puppies store in 2010 to look at the boutique and somehow left with a 3 month old Maltese/Pomeranian. 

She loves treats, belly scratches and snuggling up under your chin. Oh, and she loves the outdoors! If she could, she would spend every minute of every day running through the grass and sniffing the flowers! 

We have never had any regrets and Molly is a spoiled but not too rotten sweetheart who we love and adore! 

Sincerely, Molly's big sister

Hi Lane,
Please see attached for pictures of our 6 month old HavaPeke, Dagny. We got her at the end of last year and she stayed with Natalie over Christmas when we went to Argentina. She loves to play fetch and knows how to sit, lay down, sit up and sort of to stay (we're working on stay and shake right now). She also loves her toys-- all of them-- but especially one that's a pig stuffed animal that's about her size. I have older pictures with the pig but all the recent ones are too blurry. 

We love her dearly and she's got a HUGE personality which is getting more and more entertaining by the day. We're thinking of getting her a sister now that she's housetrained and spayed (we're pretty sure we want another girl)- maybe another Havanese or a Morkie. I texted Natalie this morning as we'd like to bring Dagny in for a grooming and I saw some new Teacup Morkies and Havanese on the site today. 

Please feel free to let me know what litters you have coming up and what puppies might be available soon. We're not in a huge hurry but thought now that she's nearly trained it would be a good time to add a companion for her since she's so social. 

I'd also like to get her in for a grooming if you have an opening next weekend.

Thank you pocket puppies for my little one.

This is our our 2 year old Molly, our third Yorkshire Terrier from Pocket Puppies.  She loves hugs and kisses, and loves to play fetch, and we never taught her, smart as can be.  She lets you know when she wants her toys out of the toy box and when it's treat time.  She loves her brother and sister but will mimic everything her brother does, if he kicks back, so will Molly, if he rolls around on the grass there's Molly.  Our Benji 8 years old, Gracie 7 years old are posted along with our son and daughter in law Min Pins 8 & 7 years old Tyson & Rocky, also from Pocket Puppies.  Can't wait to get Toby, already have the name picked out, I told my husband we have room for one more and he agrees!!!!!

She loves every person she meets, she loves all animals (even when they don’t love her back), she even likes bugs (she will sniff them and follow them but will never try to eat them or hurt them). She is very smart and playful. She knows how to sit, lay down, give high-fives, roll over, and stand! Her favorite game to play is fetch with any of her toys! Thank you pocket puppies for finding us the perfect addition to our family! :)
She met Santa for the first time this year!

Hello Lane

Almost three years ago Luke Murphy and I walked into pocket puppies and bought the sweetest French bulldog from you. He has turned out to be the sweetest, most obedient member of my family. He also volunteers at one of the best hospitals in California and the country Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, CA. He spreads joy to countless patients and doss everything with a big smile as you can see in his badge below. 

I just wanted to say thank you for helping contribute to him being in my life and bringing me and others so much joy!

I got Cooper from Pocket Puppies 2 years ago. He is an amazing dog! He has the biggest personality, he is so sweet and smart and loves to play. I am so lucky to have him in my life. Cooper has added so much joy and has become my best friend. 
I wanted to share some more recent photos of him.

I'm fairly confident that we snagged the most perfect pup to ever come through Pocket Puppies.  He is hilarious and loves being around us - following us around the house, sleeping at our feet or desperately trying to get on our laps. We love him.  He's 3 and a half months and about 8lbs :) 


We bought Fred from your store on 9/17/2014. He is a little over 3 months old now and doing very well. Fred is such a good dog--full of energy and affection... not to mention how adorable he is! We thank you for bringing Fred into our lives. We love him so much!

Roaya Namdari

Just wanted to share some photos of our Tuxie! He's such a sweet puppy!!

I frequently browse your website, and decided that I had to submit one of my favorite pictures of Hank, one of our two pocket puppies. Hank is a malti-pom and almost 5 years old, but he still has the personality of a puppy. He loves anyone who will hold him, and though a feisty little guy at playtime, he is the perfect definition of a “lap dog.” His favorite activities are playing with his sister Darla (not blood-related), going for car rides, and sleeping. He especially loves trips to Starbucks for his “puppy-chino.” Our dogs, Hank and Darla, are both from pocket puppies, and we can’t imagine our lives without them!! 

Taylor Matichak


I've attached photos of my partner & I's dog, Bruce. He's the perfect companion for cuddling and going on walks. He loves being around people and also loves to bark every now and then at 2 AM when he misses us. He turns 2 in January and in April we will have him officially for two years. This little guy brings so much light into our lives and reminds us that great things really do come in small packages :). Thank you so much for letting us get this little booger. We couldn't be happier!

Hello Pocket Puppies employees!

I came in November 1, 2013 to purchase a sweet little Morkie from your store and wanted to send you some updated photos of my sweet girl. When I first brought her home she resembled Corduroy Bear from the children's books that I decided to name her Bear.  My little bear cub has brought me so much happiness! She still loves to ride around in the sleepy pod that we walked out of your store in, too. I hope you enjoy the photos and once again, thank you thank you thank you!

We LOVE our little puppy Callie. She's already made a real difference in our house. Though the pictures show her ability to sleep anywhere, she also loves playing fetch and tug of war. We're glad we went to Pocket Puppies and couldn't be happier with our Mal-shi puppy Callie.

Diego purchased at pocket puppies 2008....my kids says they want to be reincarnated and come back to earth as my dog!

I bought my little dog, Henry in October 1012. It's the best thing I could have ever done. He is a funny and sweet companion and keeps me soo entertained. The most important thing is he is healthy and super active. I recommend pocket puppies to anyone I know who expresses a serious desire to adopt a tiny dog. Thank you!!

Candace Novak


Ribeye just wanted to wish Pocket Puppies a happy new year! Pic attached! He is now almost 9 months old and weighs 2 pounds! Vet thinks he will be 3 pounds maximum fully grown possibly less. Ribeye is truly a teacup!

He flew on a plane with me to California for the holidays and handled everything very well. We have learned that he gets carsick so when we drive he has to stay in his carrier.

Ribeye loves to eat his chicken flavor Spots Stew and has Cesar's filet mignon flavor as a special treat. He still likes his Royal Canin dry food too although we are slowly switching him to another all natural dry kibble by a reputable brand called Orijen. When he is extra good Ribeye is allowed an all natural chicken jerky strip that's made in the US. He also loves his Flossies! Gets a new one every week.

Stay warm Pocket Puppies!

Christa and Ribeye





Hey pocket puppies,

Hi guys,

This is Truck and we got her at pocket puppies. She is two years old now and a ball of energy!

Your friends,
Erika Stein and Dane Williams

I bought my male yorkie (Rascal) from you in February of 2012, and in December he will be 2 years old. In January of this year I bought a parti yorkie (Zero)from you as well and the two of them play together constantly and sometimes get into little fights.  Long story short, the parti got too aggressive with the other male and I had to get stitches in his arm but the cast they put on him was the cutest thing in the world.  I attached a picture of that to this email.  He is doing fine now and is more crazy than ever.  A few days after the stitches in the arm I took him to get neutered and woke up the next morning to realize that he had chewed all of the stitches out on his own, but to my and the doctor’s amazement he didn’t need more stitches or anything they said he was healing perfectly and that he was okay to go home.I have also attached a picture of the parti and the other male in a valentine’s day photo from earlier this year.

Hope you enjoy, I have a ton more if you want to see those too!

Suki my 4 month old Maltese has changed my life in so many ways. It's the little things in life that mean the most, that being said I'd like to thank Pocket Puppies for the great experience, the orientation was beyond my expectations, couldn't be more grateful!

I've attached some photos!

Dear Pocket Puppies,

Here are some photos of Phoebe, our 12 week old Morkie. She is precious & we are enjoying every minute with her!

She loves to come with us to the grocery store, and is excited to pick up her twin brothers from school!

Hello everyone at Pocket Puppies,


Here is a picture of our babies Benji & Gracie,Yorkshire Terriers, celebrating Christmas Eve 2012.  We adopted Benji from Pocket Puppies in 2007 and Gracie in 2008.  Benji, top, will be 6 years old on 2/14/2013, Valentine's Day, and Gracie will be 5 years old on 2/12/2013.  We learned of Pocket Puppies in the news back in 2006/2007.  I told my son about the place and he in turn told his father in-law, who went to Pocket Puppies just to look and brought home Buddy, Maltese, that same day, wish I had a picture of him, but he's beautiful and doing great.


Shortly after our son and his wife saw Tyson, on the web site, Miniature Pinscher, went right after work and brought him home.  My husband and I decided to take a ride no intentions of bringing a baby home as I was afraid of dogs, needless to say came home with Benji.  Subsequently the following year our son brought home Rocky, another Min Pin, and we followed with Gracie.  I thank God every day that we took that ride back in May, 2007, otherwise I would have never gotten over the fear of dogs, but most importantly been so blessed to know and experience such joy and unconditional love.


Hoping to visit you one more time!!




This is Cooper! I adopted him last week from pocket puppies and he is doing great! I am very lucky to have him
Thank you!!

My husband and I adopted the most amazing little french bulldog puppy, Winston this past May at Pocket Puppies. He is truly a joy and has the sweetest most loving personality! He loves everyone and is always to be the life of the party (or dog park)! We absolutely adore our sweet boy! I've attached a picture of Winston in his Batman Halloween costume and a few others of our adorable little guy.

Nala is doing great and loves her new home. We adore her and cannot believe how much joy she brings into our lives. Thank you!

This is my little girl Kiwi, I got her from Pocket Puppies over the summer, and she's now back with me in the Netherlands and traveling all around Europe. She is now 5 months old and couldn't be a healthier, happier more lovably dog. The amount of attention she attracts is unreal, whenever I walk with her, I feel like I'm walking a celebrity. But at the end of the day, it's just me and Kiwi and I couldn't be happier with the puppy I picked up from Chicago 3 months ago :)

Here are a couple of pictures of our dear Soleil. I hope you remember her! She is now 1 year and 3 months old. She loves to play with socks and lick our toes as soon as we get out of the shower. Her "Chewnel" purse from pocket puppies is still one of her favorite toys. She will always sleep in our big bed and once she has taken over an area, it is hers to keep!

Mamie (Pomeranian) is a real joy! She now weights 5.5 and 90% potty trained. She loves going for long walks, but most of all she loves water. We can't wait to take her to Puerto Vallarta where she can wade in the Pool. She is very sweet and well adjusted.

Dear Pocket Puppies Staff,

 We got our little Milo about a month ago and he is doing great! He gets along really well our other dog Jovie. Everytime we take them for a walk about ten people ask where we got him and how old he is.
 Jovie is now one and three quarters years old and weighs a grand total of 5.5 pounds, Milo weighs 2 pounds. The two dogs get along fantastically.
( Milo (left) and Jovie (right))
 They love each other so much!
 Thank you for bringing these wonderful puppies into our lives,
 Quinlan and Ainsley Owen


Here is Theodore Peppers! He is a 6lb 15 month old Yorkie Pap that came home with me last March from Pocket Puppies. He loves going on walks and getting compliments for being the cutest dog in the neighborhood. He loves to lick and play and dig and bounce around. Here he is before and after haircuts…doesn’t get any cuter than that!

Thank you Pocket Puppies!

~Kristie Luda


Hey Lane and Pocket puppies Staff,

Here is my little diva Macy. She is 9 months and was the smallest dog that came out of pocket puppies at 11 ounces! She is now 4 lbs and is very healthy! She loves to play at the dog park with LARGE DOGS (she also thinks she is a large dog). Everywhere I go people tell me I have the CUTEST dog they have ever seen! Thank you so much for giving me so much joy by finding her for me! xo

Hi Lane,
I got our French Bulldog "Oscar" from you 3 years in August. I'm so very sorry that it's taken this long to get a picture to you.
Oscar is doing great! We are extremely happy with him as part of our family. He gets along very well with our 7 year male Pug "Cecil" It was a pleasure dealing with you and your staff. We have told several people about you and Pocket Puppies. We will certainly be back. Darrel, Suzanne, Cecil and Oscar.

This is Athena, she is a two year old Havamalt (Havanese/Maltese). She is absolutely adorable she is seven pounds fully grown sweet as can be. Everywhere we go people stop us to ask us about her. We love her.

~Yovana Rathbone

Thank you to Layne and his professional staff. "Hillel" is Chris's  new teacup Havanese made it home to Kentucky from Chicago. She laid in her pink bed we bought from you all like a queen all the way on her voyage to a happy home. Your staff was so professional as we blind folded Chris to surprise him of his new dog he had wanted. I want the public to know that you all were very professional, honest, and caring in all that you do. Hillel is happy and glad to call Kentucky home.

Hi, Lane:

I wanted to update you on Barkley, my 4 month old (to the day!) Havashire pup.  I bought her at your store in December and can’t imagine what I did without her!  She is excelling in her puppy class and very much the teacher’s pet J  Thank you and your store for everything you do to bring these amazing puppies into people’s lives.

Attached are a few pictures.  She rarely is sitting long enough to take a photo so I love when one finally turns out!

ps. Say hello to Javier for me. He's such a nice person and was super helpful!

Thank you soo much, he's the most amazing little guy in the world!


Hey Pocket Puppies,

I wanted to give you guys and update on my little Grey.  He came into my life last year on October 5, 2010 and has been nothing but wonderful! Despite the grumpy look from his photo that was taken after his first hair cut, Grey is super lovable, smart, and cuddly!  He is 7 lbs. and has been super healthy, minus an ear infection, since I brought him home last year.  I am 110% satisfied with him.  I hope many more of your puppies go to loving homes---they are simple the best J

All the best!

Dear Pocket Puppies:

This is Coco Harriet Drake she is so loved in the Drake household. She loves playing with her mini tennis balls and watching the Bears with her mommy and daddy. As you can see she is ready for football season.

We love our pocket puppy so much. Thank you for finding such a wonderful baby to complete our family.

This little guy is Chuy he is an awesome addition to the family, my son Nathaniel absolutely adores him.. Chuy has made friends with other dogs in the neighborhood we actually attended a birthday party for a little Yorkie next door it was pretty fun to see him interact with other dogs and now I'm sure he can't wait for his birthday bash in April :) well I hope you enjoy the pictures.. My husband and I were actually wondering why our photo never made it to the adoption list!? Can you e-mail it to us that would be great! Thank you

Chuy is a shih-tzu puppy the one of the rarest & cutest ever he gets sooo many compliments on his color & the way he looks my mini Chewbacca everyone loves him he is so full of energy him & my son (his big brother) together are very energetic & playful with each other.. My husband and I couldn't be any more blessed bringing home a perfect addition to the family :)

Coco is almost a year old! She's a Pom-A-Poo. Coco enjoys taking afternoon naps in her princess bed, playing with her favorite toy, her elephant, and running around the yard on sunny days with our other dog, Baby. She also loves belly rubs, fetch and the occasional reality tv show. She hates being alone and hates going to the vet. She is the happiest, most energetic ball of fluff anyone could ask for :)
Her proud family,
The Giannini's


Here is Rocky. He is our second pocket puppy, and one of our five
yorkies! We love this little guy, he has the best personality and so
energetic and loving! He loves the pool and hanging out outside!




My mini-long haired dachshund Willa (pocket puppies alum!) and I visited you a few weeks ago, and we were asked to send along a few photos of her. I adopted her in February 2010 and have had such a blessed and wonderful year and half with her! We are so in love with her, we'd love to expand our family and add another dachshund to spread the love! Please let us know when and if you will have any mini doxies in the next year at Pocket Puppies. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Hi Lane,

It was so nice to finally meet you today! I have attached a few photos of Dean Martin, my amazing little puppy - some older, some more recent. He's growing up so fast. He is so happy and healthy and I am thrilled!

Take care,



We were just in yesterday and bought your Porkie Female! We had a lovely experience and are already over joyed with her. She slept through the night last night and is taking very well to going pottie outside. She is so happy and playful and my husband and I couldn't be more delighted about our new addition to our home! We're in love!

Here are a few pictures taken yeterday.


Lydia and Denny Lange



Here is a little update on my little baby Porkie, Carmela.  She is almost 6 months old and under 6 pounds.  She thinks she is a very large dog.  She loves everybody and and anything: people, dogs, and cats.  I think she gets offended when people do not notice her when she walks down the street.  For a little dog she is very lively.  She eats like a big dog, plays like a big dog, and loves going on walks.  It may be because her big brother is a lab!  Thank you for such a wonderful puppy!  Attached are two photos.  She has started growing out of her puppy hair.  She is no longer a big fur ball, but she is growing up to be a lovely little young lady.


~Angela Hare

Hey Lane,

We just wanted to give an update on Bella. She is a big dog packaged in a nearly 3 pound body. She has an infectious personality that just makes everyone smile. Bella enjoys traveling and going to the nursing home to visit with the residents. She is able to accompany us on most of our trips, so she now has elite status with American Airlines and prefers first class to coach. Her best buds are Morkie and Ella, she enjoys sleep overs any time. She fills our home with joy on a daily basis. Here are some recent pictures of her.

Chris and Jerry

This is Bambi! She's a Pomeranian poodle mix just under 3-lbs soaking wet and bout a year and a half in age.

She's terrific!

P.S. Another photo of lil Bambi sitting on my bed pillow... She loves to sleep right near my shoulder and pose for pictures!

Her gentle feminine personality is always a pleasure

Midge is the CUTEST Maltese! I have a sleuth of friends who aren’t dog lovers (weird, right?) and are now obsessed with dogs after meeting Midge!

Hi Pocket Puppies Staff:

Here's a photo of our bulldog pocket puppy, Duffy.  He is 6 months old and is wearing his favorite Bears jersey from Pocket Puppies store!  He is so perfect and we love him so much!  He should definitely be your featured pocket puppy next time since the current featured dog is his brother, Biscuit!
