What do TomKings Frenchie parents have to say to future parents

Alan, Charlee Mae’s dad:

“From personal experience, the process was 100% legit and I received the most beautiful Frenchie ever. I had followed TKK for almost a year then finally decided to reserve my pup and pay my deposit. Communication between myself and the kennel was regular and my questions were answered fully and promptly. I think it was about 7 months after I paid my deposit that I received my first email saying that there was a pup available. The first offering didn’t quite work for me but it was only a short time later that I received my 2nd email with pics and I was in love. I waited the extra month until Charlee Mae was 4 months old as it was highly recommended that staying with litter mates on the farm really benefits the pups and it made potty training a breeze. So all I can say to you is trust in TKK to guide you through the process. It shouldn’t be long after sending your deposit (depending on color and gender you’re waiting for) and soon you’ll be receiving your email with pics of a beautiful pup to call your own.”

Susan, Stella and Louie’s mom:

“I was one of their first customers and I was worried too. I remember Geri gave me the name of a vet in Canada and there was very few (if any) other people who could recommend. They are legit, they walk you through the whole process, they are extremely responsive and now I have one of my favorites dogs ever who will be 6 next month! Do it!!”

Lynda, LuLu’s, Macy’s and Grayson’s mom:

“I have 3 pups from them. They are trustworthy and honest. I understand your fears but you will be overjoyed with your purchase. Their dogs do not have the issues the bloodlines have here in the States. And once you purchase they are always there to answer questions. Great people!”

Ashley, Remi’s mom:

“Everyone told me I would be scammed if I got my pup from Budapest. But I did further research and got in touch with someone who purchased from TKK and she lived about an hour away from me. She was in the process of purchasing her 2nd TKK pup. She answered all of my questions and was super helpful. Because of her I purchased my baby and I’m thankful every day that I did!”

Erik and Denia, Malaki’s parents:

“They are as legit as you can be. They also urge you to send the deposit through PayPal which protects the buyer. As for the broker and importing, we live in Sonoma, CA. And everything was easy. Our puppy is a little older than a year and has been healthy!”

“I would add that our puppy was taken care of during the flight they secure the puppy hotel etc. It’s a long flight only downside but they try to do their best to care and arrange for it all.”

Randy, Amir’s dad:

“I too was a bit nervous given how they’re many breeders scamming folks of their money. I’ve done a lot of research before getting my little Amir. I could assure you without a doubt that TomKings Kennel is by far the best place to adopt a Frenchie. You and your family will not be disappointed. They have the most lovable and sociable dogs on the planet.” 

Kyra, Winston’s mom:

“I would highly recommend them as well they were amazing! I was also concerned at the beginning but they are very responsive to any questions you may have. I had no issues at all receiving my puppy and even to this day if I have any questions or concerns they are always available to answer them!”

Thomas, Boo and Saint’s dad:

“My son bought a Frenchie from them we have bought 2. No worries. They are professional. You will get the dog you picked on the site no bait and switch. The dog will be healthy and loving. Everything promised will happen. Highly recommend them.”

Galina, Coco’s mom:

“After having so many issues with Frenchies bought locally (we bought two). They were not cheap, and from a reputable breeder we realized that here profit comes above their health. In USA Frenchies are not considered a healthy breed and even insurance charges twice as much for a Frenchie as it does for our golden retriever. Do yourself a favor and buy the best Frenchie money can buy from TomKings. Our vet who is in his 60 and specializes in flat nose puppies said that he has never seen a healthier spine on a Frenchie puppy. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by purchasing one their puppies.”

Johanna, Morty’s mom:

“Look no further, TomKings Kennel is reputable and offers quality Frenchies! I am actually going to purchase another French bulldog from them sometime this year for next. If you still feel a little worried, I would communicate with Geri but honestly, everyone that works here are reliable and trustworthy. I think it’s safe to say that we have all been a little scared but in the end, everything worked out just fine.”

Jojo, Raja’s dad:

“TomKings are legitimate and very responsible French bulldog adoption agency! They know the breed very well and will answer your questions and concerns in a timely manner. I too had some hesitations before, but I would recommend them highly and will adopt another Frenchie from them.”

Eric, Ohana’s dad:

“10000000% not a scam. By far the best decision our family has made regarding a fur baby. Our Ohana is perfect. Tomkings is more than just a breeder. His team becomes like family when choosing your new puppy. Everything about the process was easy thanks to them. Zero regrets and we will be working with them again.”

Kimberly, Sully’s mom:

“They are 100% legit, honest, trustworthy and the best Frenchie breeder by far! I followed their page for over a year and a half, researched and communicated with other breeders too. I knew hands down that not only are they the best breeders, but they “care and love” all the puppies/parents and it shows! They are NOT the typical breeder that once you get your puppy you never hear from them again. You become a family! I wouldn’t even entertain getting another Frenchie from any other breeder but them!”

Things to watch out for when buying a Frenchie online

When you make the decision to get a new furry family member, one of the very first things should be to do some diligent research, especially when buying a Frenchie online. Unfortunately, there are not only many unethical breeders out there who keep Frenchies in poor conditions and sell them for the profit, but scammers as well who trick people into sending money for a puppy that doesn’t even exist.
