Monique Smith

Divine pups made me so happy when I found my Rolo (my dogs name). I was searching on a site by the namw Next Day pets for specific Houston breeds and every pup I adored was bread my divine pups. I reached out and from that moment forward everything was smooth sailing. I was interested in three dogs 1 yorkie and 2 Shih Tzu, so I set an appointment same day and met with Joseph as he introduced me to all three puppies I was interested in

Camille Nguyễn

We are thrilled with our beautiful baby boy. He has the best personality and he is a head turner. Our vet and groomer constantly compliment
how good looking he is. It is the quality of the puppies that divine pups breed. They are wonderful people, easy to communicate with and they love what they do. Even through their busy schedules they always returned my calls or text messages. I am so glad to have found them.

Cassie LeBlanc

Thank you so much. We love our new pup. She’s an absolute sweetie from her beautiful hazel eyes to her adorable personality. She is the perfect addition to our family and we are thankful you guys worked with us during the pick up process to make it as easy as possible.

Kyla Salazar

Thank you divine pups for giving us our little bundle of joy! They flew our puppy to Las Vegas for us. We had a great experience with a pet nanny hand delivering our baby to us. We got pictures along the way and were able to know how she was doing at all times

Jaqwon Hedrick Jefferson

Ara was super nice and very informative. She made the process so easy and even sent product recommendations to get us going. Our newest four-legged family member is doing well and it was a MAJOR plus that she came to us already trained to use puppy pads.

Stella Chiori

Ara and her husband are truly amazing people. She was able to find me the exact puppy I wanted, even though he wasn’t listed on the website yet. My dog Blus is the most beautiful and sweetest doggie ever! He has a wonderful temperament and is very easy to train (he came puppy pad trained)! Everything about my service with Divine Pups was 5 stars! I can’t wait to do business with you again soon!

I could not be happier with my Shih Tzu Cooper from Divine Pups. From the moment I made contact with Divine Pups, they were so accommodating, helpful, and understanding. I wouldn’t have wanted to receive my first furry friend from anywhere else! Thank y’all for making this experience so effortless and smooth.

asked Questions

Do you offer support after the puppy goes home?

We are always here for our Divine Pup Family. I encourage you to text or call me first when something unusual is going on or  even if  you may think it is a silly question. If we can help in any way in the process we will. 

Do you have a waitlist?

Yes, we do have a waitlist option for upcoming litters. However, we will not hold a specific puppy until after temperament evaluations are completed and you are matched with your puppy. 

Where are you located? Do you deliver?

We are located in South Houston Texas. There are different options available to you if you are not local. We can meet you at the airport and deliver your puppy for an additional fee. We  also offer shipping through a flight pet nanny program or our nanny can drive to meet you.
