From the moment we contacted Stephen he was responsive and communicated to our questions. We bought Rayna home who is a healthy and energetic Bichon of 9 weeks. She has been a great addition to our family and we just adore her. Mr. Stephen welcomed us in his home so we can play with Rayna and get acquainted with her. What I like most was that every time we called with questions he would return our calls and has always been pleasant.
- Diana and Craig Berry,
Bailey is the most healthiest, playful, and lovable dog we could've asked for! An excellent breed! Stephen was so helpful and friendly. The whole process was fast and simple. He answered all our questions and concerns. Very professional. Thank you Stephen!
- MENA BAKER,
Stephen was great! His place was beautiful and my boyfriend and I had the easiest time scheduling a time and picking them up even though we were 7 hours away. Riki and Rilee are so well behaved from the moment we brought them home and have the best personalities; they're both loving, playful, sooo sweet, and very photogenic. They've bonded with each and love each other so much. They're always cuddling or playing with each other and me and my boyfriend. You can tell they came from a loving home. I would recommend Stephen to anyone looking for a puppy. Thank you!
- Caitlyn Marcoux,
Cookie is now just over 6 months old and she’s the life of the party! She has so much personality and we’ve loved her since we first met her. I cannot recommend Stephen enough, he was very communicative and helpful. I would not go anywhere else!
- Nicholas La Porte,
I have had the most wonderful dog the last 4 years! We purchased a Yorkiepoo- Bichon. She has the BEST temperament, smart, super easy to train, has no health issues, adorable, and very affectionate. Everywhere we go we are complimented on how cute and well-behaved she is. We are so happy with our little girl and recommend Stephen to everyone who asks. A friend of ours got another dog from this breeder and is equally as happy.
- Kauriee Wood,
Stephen gets 2 thumbs up from me! Our puppy Zippy is even greater than we imagined. The quality of Zippy is impecable. He arrived very well kempt. I would also like to acknowledge the genltleman Marvin who transported Zippy from Ephrata PA to New Jersey. He arrived on time and his price for transport was very reasonable. Thank you Stephen and Marvin, we received the greatest gift and it has been a wonderful experience.
- Rasheida T,
Stephen and his wife where very helpful. It can be daunting trying to find your furever puppy. They answered all of my questions and concerns throughout the whole process. We brought Jasper (Cringle) home last Christmas. He fits in perfectly with our family. Jasper is sweet, friendly, loves everyone including other dogs and animals. Jasper arrived with a perfect bill of health and almost a year later is still in perfect health. When Jasper arrived you could tell that he was well loved. Thank you Mr. And Mrs. Stoltzfoos for our wonderful fur baby. ❤
- Candice Coffman,
We bought a bicopoo from Mr. Stoltzfoos last week. Great person great family very kind. The puppy was perfect in every way possible. Unfortunately my wife had allergic to the puppy and we had to return it back. I would recommend him to anyone who’s looking for a happy healthy puppies.
- John Bulent,
We had the most positive experience adopting a dog through Stephen. He and his family were welcoming, warm, and very kind. His family took the time to tell us about Abby's personality, habits, bathing information, etc. We had the feeling Stephen and his family really cared about their pups. Stephen made sure Abby was a good fit for us before we took her home. We highly recommend a pup from Stephen if you are looking for your first or next furry friend.
- Missy Hensley,

- Terry Ann Gerspach,
Rosie and Rory are 18 months old and doing great! They are playful and full of energy. They love children and other animals. Great addition to my family :)
- Meagan Derbyshire,
I Picked up my little puppy from this breeder and she is the cutest, funniest, happy little puppy I think I’ve ever had. Hemi is smart and very snuggly. She gets along great with my grandchildren and my other 2 dogs. I had her at the veterinarian for her first check up and she said she is a very, very healthy little puppy! I would recommend Stephen Stoltzfoos as a breeder to anyone looking for a small breed dog. He and his wife were very friendly and were accommodating with a time for me to come and see her. Thank you for giving us to her!!
- Karen Turk,
I have my little pixie a bich-poo from Mr. Stephen I'm so glad I make this decision she is so smart and very alert and was very easy potty trained I'm recommending him very serious person in business...I give him 5 stars 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟
- Narcisa Castillo,
I picked up Sunny this past July and have been in love with him ever since! My experience with Stephen was pleasant and he walked me through all the steps needed to pick up Sunny. He was flexible with the time that I needed to pick Sunny up as I was out of the country and my flights kept getting delayed. Sunny has also had a clean medical record and the vet and groomers all praise him for his good behavior. His temperament is amazing and he is such a sweet boy. I highly recommend picking up a puppy from Stephen!
- Michelle Ting,
I picked up our new family addition a bich-poo named Addison. It was a great experience from the first call with Stephen to today. We have a very happy loving puppy that is bringing a lot of joy to the entire family.
- Barry Kalin,
We had an appointment to buy 1 of his puppies and he sold it before our appointment date. Not a real good business practice.
- Donald Sentivan,
Mr. Stoltzfoos was super helpful in our obtaining Vivian aka Cora and we cant thank him enough. The puppy was delivered by Lisa Marie who was awesome and knowledgeable. We would not hesitate to recommend him as a breeder and a caring individual and Lisa was the best. Thank you again for everything you did for us.
- Ira Smith,
I am so extremely satisfied with Steven Stoltzfoos! He was the nicest most patient guy I’ve ever met. Me and my boyfriend drove all the way from Connecticut 4 hours to visit his farm in Ephrata, PA. Best decision of my life! I am sooo happy we bought Jasmine Bich-poo puppy and I fell immediately in love with her personality. She is socialized not afraid of humans has a health guarantee and came with so many great benefits, even a batch of puppy food with MR.Stoltzfoos suggestions. She is going to be a wonderful addition a puppy at three-months she is so obedient and seems like training will be so easy !! It’s been 2 days and I already got her to pottie on a pad and walk run around the property she loves the grass and loves to play !! She is full of energy never boring or lazy pup. I am so excited and I praise Mr. Stoltzfoos so much he’s doing great work at breeding quality puppies I highly highly highly recommend him!! If you live far away just plan a weekend road trip and enjoy the sights ! You’ll be so happy you did and give him a call he gives you a nice little packet of puppy food that comes with the puppy. I have no complaints Jasmine is an amazingPuppy with great temperament she isn’t timid or shy but she runs all around the grass and loves to cuddle and lick and we’ve instantly bonded I have made a new puppy friend for life!!!
- Sheneaqua Ryan,
We love our Penny our Bichpoo that we got from Mr. Stoltzfoos. She is a great family dog - great personality. She will play actively with the 3 kids like tug-of-war and chase balls (working on fetch). But she will also cuddle up on the couch. Also, our kids allergies are unaffected by Penny. She slept all night after the first day or two and was very easy to potty train. Really recommend this type of dog.
- Jeff W,
So my family and I took Champ, a.k.a. jumper, home on August 11th. I know it’s only been a week and a half, but he has brought such joy to our family after we lost our other dog in April. I never thought I would love another dog as much as I loved the one that we lost… Champ is a perfect addition to our family. He is so gentle, loves to kiss, play and sleeps through the night and is just such a good boy. We love him very much and we can’t wait for all the memories we are all going to make together. We cannot thank Stephen enough for holding him a week for us until we were able to drive up there to get him. We did a handshake deal over the phone and he kept his word. We arrived on the date and time we agreed and our new son Champ was ready for us to take home. The whole process was simple and perfect, and you could tell that Stephen took excellent care of this pup. We cannot thank Stephen enough and highly recommend him as a breeder.Thank you again, Champ
And the Bolognini family.
- Ana B,
Please be careful, and distinguish between a cute puppy and a good breeder: We bought a bich-poo from Mr Stoltzfoos. He is obviously wonderful, and we love him very much. However, in hindsight there are many signs that Mr Stoltzfoos is a mass producer of puppies which might not receive the care from him you'd expect. First of all, he offers multiple breeds and many puppies. Then he doesn't show you the parents or the place they are kept. He is also highly transactional, and the overall in-person experience seemed somewhat staged. Finally, he uses a relative to do the medical exam. Please, judge for yourself and read up about Amish puppy mills before buying here. If you already bought one from him, observe if your puppy has behavioral (e.g. anxiety, aggression, difficult to potty train) or medial issues (e.g. infections).
- Karl Goldman,
Stephen and his wife are so charming. Their home and puppie breeding place is fantastic, spotlessly clean and pristine. I just got 2 puppies and in one day they are already learning to fetch, come and pee and poop on pee pads. They are both so smart. I would 100% recommend this breeder.
- Victoria de Bethencourt,
Stephen was very nice and hospitable. He gave us time to meet the puppies and decide on which one we wanted, no pressure. The puppies were happy and healthy. Im very happy with my decision to go there and would highly recommend to anyone!
- Jessica McDevitt,
We brought our Maggie (formerly Mandy) home June 23, 2021. She is an adorable, energetic Shichon who gives us a lot of love and laughs. She’s very healthy according to our vet and hasn’t met a stranger yet. According to Maggie anyone that comes into the home is here for her. She’s a bundle of energy that is non-stop play but also likes to cuddle. We have recommended Greenfield Puppies as well as Stephen to a few people because we are above satisfied with Maggie.
- Rosemary Zielinski,
I’m really glad I took the 4 hr trip to pick our new family member! I recommend choosing fur babies from Stephen! He and his wife were very kind.
- Paige Green,
It was a pleasure adopting my Gigi now Lilirose from Mr. Stephen Stoltzfoos. Lilirose was well groomed, friendly and active. I was actually able to pad train her in less than a week, only a couple accidents. She is so adorable ,she latched onto my granddaughter right away they are inseparable. She is an absolute sweetheart. I would definitely recommend adopting from Mr. Stoltzfoos
- Marlene Anderson,
5/5 stars! My experience from contacting Stephen months ago asking about the process to picking up Sunny this July was all seamless. Stephen has a lot of knowledge of how to raise healthy and happy puppies. I could not be happier with my choice of selecting a puppy from one of his litters. Sunny has been a delight so far, has great socialization skills, and is easy to train. I highly recommend contacting Stephen if you want a puppy!
- Michelle Ting,
We love our Evan (Bichon Frise) who gets along with our 3 year Gunner (Lhasa Poo). We lost our 16 year old Bichon (Sonny Boy) and Evan fills our hearts and life with love. Thank You for bringing Evan into our family.
- Frances & Marc Kattelman,
After the loss of our Bichon, we purchased two adorable puppies (sisters) from Stephen and Slyvia. We named them Brandi and Sandi. Your knowledge concerning dogs and your pristine facility were most impressive. Our poochons are just precious! Thank you and God Bless!Phyllis and Randy Byrum

- Phyllis Byrum,
Drove for almost 3 hours to meet Rosie (now it's Chloe). She is just so adorable, fun, loving and playful pup. My first time to have a puppy and Mr. Stephen Stoltzfoos and his wife are so great. They taught me how to take care and feed my Chloe as first timer. I highly recommend Stephen!! The place is well kept and cleanliness is superb. Thank you Stephen. Chloe is just my joy :)
- Gigi G.,
We got our puppy in January - she's now six months old! When we got Erica (now Joy) she was already pretty much crate trained (thanks to the breeder :D) and only took a few weeks/months to be potty trained! She's super sweet, rarely barks, sleeps through the night, friendly to strangers/other dogs and likes to eat cicadas. We recommend Stoltzfoos highly! If you want a Bich-poo, this is the place you want to be! :)
- Kim Family,
My sweet Rosie (she was previously names Shiloh) is indeed a SWEET dog. She sleeps in my bed, waiting for me to get up every day. She will not get up until I get up. In a matter of only 3 days (!!!) she already knew how to pee in the pad during the night.
She was VERY easy to train. Of coarse, we still have accidents, but she is doing tremendous well.
She is adorable. Super playful. Loves to fetch the ball. Great companion. I’m very please with her sweet personality.
Doing business with Mrs Stoltzfoos was a very good experience. He was kind and patient with me since the beginning but holding “Shiloh” one week longer until I was able to get her. He was also very patient with me when I forgot to pay the taxes when I wrote the check. He is a kind and patient man! I highly recommend him as a breeder. I hope to soon buy a sister for my Rosie from Mrs Stoltzfoos.
- Sheila Cristofano johnson,
We fell in love with our bichpoo Jax, the minute we met him. Stephen and his wife Sylvia have such a beautiful property in Lancaster and their home is immaculate. We're lucky we live only 45 minutes away, so could meet the dogs prior to making a decision. You know they take great care of their puppies. He matched me perfectly with Jax. He's been a joy since day 1. The perfect cross of spunk and cuddles. He's almost 4 months and, he feels like he's been a part of our family forever. We've had 6 dogs ( 4 Goldens and 2 Cockers) prior to Jax and I must admit , he's my favorite! Don't hesitate to purchace your puppy from Stephen and Sylvia!
- Bonnie Heenan,
We adopted a BichPoo puppy who we named Toffee from Stephen Stoltzfoos around New Year and he turned 6 months old today. Toffee is an absolute delight. He is intelligent, playful, cuddly, and healthy. Toffee loves everyone and everyone loves him! He is calm when he should be, and playful when he can be. He is also the most expressive puppy ... always making eye contact with us and tipping his head from side to side in the most adorable way. Mr Stoltzfoos obviously took excellent care of his puppies based on our experience with Toffee. We would not hesitate to recommend this breeder.
- K Engstrom,
Such a great experience! We love Blossom so much! She is a great addition to our family! Such an adorable dog! Stephen was so kind and gave us such a great experience. We will be returning one day for another!
- Kelsey Lampitt,
This is a long overdue review. We brought home our sweet little Lulla on September 2020. She brings us so much joy and laughter. Stephen and his wife was great and the process was smooth. Our Lulla is the most perfect addition to our family, we love her so much!
- Anna and Joe,
We've had Jax, our male bich-poo for 3 weeks now and he has been terrific from Day 1! After having 4 Goldens and 2 Cockers, I wanted a lap dog for my "last" puppy! Stephen has been breeding for many years and I found him through Greenfield puppies. Whatever Stephen and his wife Sylvia do to prepare their puppies for their next home is incredible. Jax fit in immediately and shockingly slept through the night on the first day. He's a perfect mix of spunk and love. We're so happy to have him as our newest member of the family.
Their home and property are impeccable , and in such a beautiful part of Pennsylvania. We're fortunate that we only live 45 minutes away and were able to visit prior to pick up, to choose the right puppy for us.
I would highly recommend Stephen Stoltzfoos to anyone in search of a new puppy.
- Bonnie Heenan,
This a long overdue review of our puppy Lulla. We are so happy with her, she is loving, playful and in good health. We couldn’t ask for me, we are in love.
- Anna and Joe Adamucci,
I love my puppy so much!!!!!! He is super cute and and very playful. His very smart and knows how to do some things. He also fits into my brothers teddy bear collection (lol!!!).
- Akshay Reddii,
It’s been a little over a month now that we welcomed our new “baby” into our family. Lacey has brought so much joy to us all. We look forward to many more happy years with our little bundle of joy.
The breeder is Stephen Stoltzfoos of Ephrata, PA. He is very professional and he was always available when needing to contact him with any questions. Stephen clearly knows what he’s doing as a dog breeder. Lacey received a clean bill of health from her Veterinarian.
Mr. Stoltzfoos takes excellent care of his puppies.. My family are I couldn’t be happier with our little Lacey Lou❤️
- Catherine Coluccio,
Tulip, now named Frankie, has been home for only about 3 hours now and has already become an irreplaceable member of our family. Stephen made it so easy to set up time to meet him and Tulip and their home is beautiful. There was zero concern as to whether or not they raised Tulip/Frankie with love and care. She is a cuddle bug. I can not thank Stephen and his family enough. Looking forward to years of happiness because of them.
- Samantha Smith,
We drove 3.5 hrs from NYC to Ephrata, PA. It was definitely worth Mr Stephen is very knowledgeable about exotic breeds and patient with clients. We didnt know exactly what breed we wanted He brought few puppies out to play with: Shichon, bichpoo. My 7 yo son picked Bichpoo as they look like Teddy bear. Thank you very much for great experience We love our puppy so much. Will be coming back.
- Kate May,
We purchased Bentley 3 years ago from Mr. Stoltzfus and he is the most perfect little love bug. Couldn’t have asked for a better pup. I always recommend Mr. Stoltzfus to everyone!
- Kendra Brown,
We got this Beautiful puppy from Stephen a week ago and WE LOVE HER!! We drove 2 hours to get her and it was the best decision of our life! She is the perfect puppy for my family. When we first saw her we loved her! First time talking to Stephen and his wife we knew we where in good hands. The price for our puppy was amazing also! We all can’t believe how much of a help Stephen and his wife was. They answered all of our questions and helped us every step of the way! Our puppy is so easy to train and she is so loving. We would definitely recommend Stephen to anyone that is going puppy shopping!

Stephen is the best! We purchased Grizz a year ago this past November and we are "in love" with our Grizz! He trained very easily and very quickly. He is smart, great with our granddaughter and plays well with other dogs. Only barks when someone comes to the door. We walk 3 times a day & every time we walk someone always comments on how adorable he is. He truly is the most loving and sweetest dog we have ever had. We can't imagine our lives without Grizz. Stephen is the best breeder! A million thank you's to Stephen.
- Kathleen Peters,
Purchased this Shichon now named VINO from Stephen. Found Stephen and his wife very hospitable and easy to work with. He was very patient with all my phone calls and was extremely helpful. His home and kennel facility was spotless. Although we were not able to see the parents of Vino, Stephen brought us as many dogs as we wanted to see to make our decision. We recently took Vino to Vet for first check-up and heart and lungs look good..just a few minor puppy issues to deal with nothing major. This little guy brought joy to our home after loosing our precious toy poodle of 16 years. I did extensive research and I highly recommend Stephen as I feel he is a reputable breeder and produces healthy and family oriented puppies.
- Doreen DeLeo,
We had a wonderful experience with Steven. Our little puppy Nalla is a little bundle of joy. Steven and his wife were very kind and helpful. When we arrived to pick up our puppy we could tell he took good care of her. He has a very neat and clean home. I would recommend this breeder to anyone who is looking for a puppy.
- Shital Amin,
Our puppy brought us a lot of joy and happiness. I highly recommend this breeder as he helps with all your questions and concerns.
- Vishwa Joshi,
This is the second puppy we got from Mr. Stoltzfoos and we are very pleased. We got Rollie 6 years ago and now we got a morkie. They are both healthy, loving and beautiful.
- Susan Cremo,
Our experience with Stephen and his wife was so pleasant! We chose a darling bichapoo who is so healthy and happy! It was obvious that the puppies were well cared for and loved! Little Teddy is so smart and loveable and has become the perfect addition to our family! Thank you Stephen !
- Linda Carter,
2 weeks ago we brought this little girl into our home. She has given us so much love. We are amazed how smart and playful she is , she loves everyone she comes in contact with in her new family and is fearless. She is thriving and getting bigger every day.
Thank you so much
- Valentina Corcoran,
We love our puppy!! We got our love from Mr. Stoltzfoos and he is the addition to the family we always needed. Mr. Stoltzfoos was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend getting your puppy from him. He is knowledgeable, honest, communicative, and he perfected the bich- poo breed. 5 + stars!!
- Alyssa Bachner,
We got our puppy yesterday, thank you Mr. Stephen Stoltzfoods. Very nice person, got a good experience, I highly recommend Mr Stephen to get your Puppy. God Bless You
- Jonathan Simbaina,
Friendly, I went out to his place not knowing what to expect and I guess he sized me up and matched me with exactly what I was looking for. A Bichon Poodle puppy. I have named him Dudley and my vet says he is in great condition. His property is well kept and I met his wife and granddaughter. Everyone I met was kind and attentive to my objective. ( Getting a good dog ) It is also a good thing I did not take my wife or we would of had two dogs. She is very happy with my choice and wants to know why I did not get two.
- Jeffrey Morgan,
I got my Teddy Bear puppy, Shelby (Dahlia), from Mr. Stoltzfoos in December 2019. She loves to play, loves our walks, loves going to the park and doggie daycare to play with the other pups and is a joy to have in my life. Mr. Stoltzfoos was very nice and accommodating - I drove up from VA and was very late getting there. I was also undecided about which pup I wanted to adopt just looking at them online so he sat me down with half a dozen puppies and just let us play and get to know each other.
- Antonina Pantano,
Professional; reliable; responsive; careful; trustworthy; a pleasure to work with . . .The puppy is a dreamboat.She was transported by Lisa Marie Birdsall, arranged by Stephen who has worked with Lisa Marie for a decade. Lisa Marie did a great job, letting me know when she picked up the puppy; sending a picture at the outset of the drive; letting me know as she approached the destination, and there, at the appointed time, with happy puppy ready to begin her new life.
- Vicky Wilson,
I was a nervous puppy buyer and we had a great experience with this breeder. On top of that our puppy is now 2 1/2 years old and has the best disposition is adorable and we love her endlessly. Definitely recommend them.
- jessica michaud,
We got our lovely teddy bear puppy from Mr. Stephen and his wife. My kids named him "Teddy". He is the most adorable puppy we have ever seen. We immediately fell in love with Teddy from the moment we saw him. Teddy is sweet, happy, energetic, sociable, smart, and most importantly, does not shed. We are so happy with our breeder Mr. Stephen, that my husband and I have already decided to go back as soon as we can to get Teddy a brother or sister❤
- Yoely and Ramon Penalo,
Quest (fonzie) is now all grown up and I couldn't be happier! Mr. Stoltzfoos and his family breed exceptional dogs. Fonzie is a bichpoo and he is everything I was looking for. Thanks so much!
- l porter,
We purchased our Bichon Frise-Chih Tzu, from Stephen and his family. The experience was great. We live out of state, and Stephen accommodated our travel and work schedule so we could collect "Snickers" when it was most convenient. Our dog was vary healthy, well groomed, and alert. We highly recommend Stephen to anyone who is considering purchasing a high quality dog. Thank you Stephen and family.
- Michael Haines,
We got our Lola Dec. 2017 and it was our best decision. She is loved by all of us and was trained when she arrived home. She is very healthy and well mannered. I recommend this breeder to all our friends and family.
- Fred Luna,
Stephen and his wife were very helpful back in March when we were looking for a puppy. We love Winnie. She is smart and just adorable. Stephen and his wife were helpful and showed us a few dogs. We live our Toy Poodle Winnie
- Carolyn DeLorenzo,
Meet Molly, Thank you Stephen for taking your time with Paige and I to make sure we got the right puppy for our family. We had been looking for a while and were very impressed with your your puppies and Your experience in breeding. She is special and we are enjoying every minute with her. Please say hello to your wife. It was a pleasure meeting her as well.
- Gail Hubberman,
We got our fur baby in January and our family is complete! She has brought nothing but joy to our household. Mr. Stoltzfoos was amazing we told him we wanted a small pup and he found us the right girl 💗
- Maria Reyes,
We got a puppy from Stephen and his wife two weeks ago, an adorable little bichpoo with a cute brown patch on his eye. He was clearly so healthy and well-cared for when we picked him up. In two weeks, he has such a big personality and is adding so much love and light to our house. He is our little boy and we're so thankful for Stephen.
- Sabitha Bansinath,
We have had Luna for over three years now... she is a bichon poodle mix. I cannot rate this breeder high enough. Luna is now a treasured member of our family. We have had very few health problems with her, and problems in general, compared to so many other dogs I know. She was so easy to train... she doesn’t even bark! She has the sweetest and most loving demeanor of any dog I know. Of course training does come into play, but I 100% believe that the breeding is equally responsible for producing such a healthy and incredible pup. Your search is over! You do not need to look for another breeder... if we decide to add another dog to our family, we will definitely come back to Stephen.
- Sonja Vukovic,
We got a puppy from Stephen and his wife a couple weeks ago, a toy poddle/bichon mix. WE ARE IN LOVE!!! He was a gift to my grandma and he is absolutely perfect!!! The property was absolutely beautiful and so clean. You really could tell that the dogs had a beautiful first part of their life until their fur-ever homes were found. Stephen and his wife were so nice and patient as we played with Archie (now names Reiley). He has all of his shots too. Thank you so much to you both for helping us with such an important decision. You will not regret choosing them as your breeder. We will be back when my mom is ready for a puppy.
- Courtney Hawkins,
So Happy, can't wait to get another one
- Yahveh Berrios,
I have been so happy with my little Lily. Stephen has really giving me a wonderful addition to my family. She makes me laugh and smile everyday. She is incredibly smart making her easy to train. We were so happy that I had to get another as well. Both puppies are amazing. So happy I found Stephen's puppies.
- Jennifer Christy,
Stephen and Sylvia Stolfoos provided the best experience for our family when buying our adorable puppy! They were very flexible in allowing us to visit their place and pick up the pup when it was most convenient for us. Their grounds are immaculate, beautiful, and welcoming, and their puppies are obviously loved and well-cared for. Being a first time puppy-buyer, we had several questions which were kindly and patiently answered by the Stolfooses. They were so helpful in providing all the information we needed and gave us the paperwork documenting the vaccines and dates of the vaccines the puppy had been given We are so thankful to have had our first puppy buying experience with them and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is puppy shopping!!
- Mara Lee Suiter,
Our experience with Stephen was wonderful! We named our puppy Beanie and she has been such a great addition to the household. She is a bichpoo and the sweetest girl ever. I would recommend this breeder to anyone! His farm is gorgeous and our puppy couldn't be happier or healthier. We will be sure to go back to Stephen!
- Kat Siock,
This is Cookie, today 6/11/2020 is turning 1 year old, my kids love him. We went to PA from Maryland to pick up him driving by hours, my husband and my 2 kids, wen we meet him, we know that's our dog! He is healthy and completely white. The first nights poor Cookie was crying , missing the mother and brothers. We are so happy with our dog, the breeder Mr Stephen he was so nice helping me with question because it was our First dog with no idea how to take care of him. But our dog is happy with us. Thanks! Mr Stephen... We love Cookie!
- Ximena Cadima,
Let me start by saying this is my second review for Stephen. In February of 2016 we got our Morkie (now named Zippy) from Stephen and he has been the best dog we could ever ask for. My wife and I agreed that when the time was right to get a second dog, we would only go back to Stephen. In March, my wife and I decided that it was time to expand our family. When we looked at the pups Stephen had available, he had a small Shichon available named Zippy. With it being a breed that we wanted, and having the name of our current pup we got from Stephen, everything seemed to align and tell us this was the pup for us. I picked up the Shichon (now named Zoodles) at the end of March and much like his older brother, his vet check was spotless. Since the moment he entered our house he felt right at home. Both pups get along very well and the Shichon is extremely smart and energetic. I always recommend Stephen to anyone who is looking to get a smaller breed dog because he is definitely one of the best. His knowledge and care for the dogs shows the amount of effort he puts in and wants to ensure anyone who gets one of his pups is getting the best pup they could ask for.
- Justin Robinson,
We have gotten both of our pups from Mr. Stoltzfoos. Bash (Maltese-yorkie) 5 years ago, and Pam (Binchon-Shitzu) a year and a half ago. They were both healthy and happy when we brought them home. The vet checked them out as being in perfect health and they continue to thrive. The process was easy and enjoyable. Our pups are so loved and we are so thankful for them. When the day comes to get a new addition, this is where we will be coming!!!

We purchased our Bichpoo from Mr. Szoltzfoos on 3/27/2020 among the COVID-19 hysteria. The process was fast, simple and safe, the suggested 6 foot social distancing was kept at all times. The puppy was brought to us outside by Mr. Szoltfoos where we were allowed to play with him while deciding whether or not to adopt. Our new puppy is healthy, energetic and adorable. My two daughters are in love with him and are catering to his every need since we are all on quarantine in my county. I was searching for two weeks before I stumbled across this website and Mr. Szoltzfoos. He was very professional, informative and quick to respond. I look forward to adopting another puppy from him in the near future.

i was referred to Grrenfield puppies from my cousin who purchased a Goldendoodle on this website. It was so easy using Greenfield Puppies to choose the right puppy & Breeder. We did a lot of research on the Breeder. So in January 2020, after 11 years since losing our beloved Maltese, Dylan we decided it was time to get a new puppy. We were so pleased when we drove up to the immaculate, beautiful farm & home that the Breeder Mr Stephen Stoltzfoos maintained. He and his wife were lovely, patient people that truly cared for the puppies they raised. The puppies were all happy, well adjusted as well as healthy looking. We came for Katie a ( Maltese/ Poodle/ Bichon Mix ) but we’re open to a Shih Tzu we saw as well. The Shih Tzu was only 7 weeks old so he would not release her. He asked us to return in a week when the puppy was 8 weeks if we wanted her. The trip was too long for us to make again so we then decided to choose Kinnsey. A ( Maltese/Poodle/Bichon ) We now call her Lola! She is so friendly , smart & happy. We brought her to our vet who gave her a clean bill of health & was pleasantly surprised how well adjusted she was to people. It is now 2 months later And we couldn’t be happier. She is a quick learner !! She sits, lies down and fetches a ball on command. She is potty trained and a joy to be around. She loves other dogs and children. I would recommend this Breeder in a heartbeat & would consider getting another puppy from him in the future. Lola is a dream puppy! Just look at that face! Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Stoltzfoos!

Stephen was wonderful to work with and was very patient, he answered all of my questions and faxed me all the papers I requested. We renamed the puppy Bella and she is so smart she learned her name in less than a week she is a little shy but she’s breaking out of her shell. If I ever buy another pup I will definitely buy from Stephen again!

We got our puppy Taffy (Shi-tzu/Maltese/ Bichon mix) about a year ago from Mr. Stephen Stoltzfoos of Ephrata, PA.The Greenfield Puppies website is very user friendly and helped us quickly identify and locate the best puppy for us. Mr Stoltzfoos was a pleasure to work with. He was very patient and helped schedule a visit when the puppies were at an optimal age for adoption. He brought the entire litter onto the lawn so we could interact with and get to know them all.Our first year with Taffy has been a pleasure! She is adorable, easygoing and was easy to train. She is healthy and has a very happy and loving demeanor. Our vet mentioned several times that it was clear Taffy's breeder had taken all necessary precautions and went the extra mile in her preventative health.We highly recommend Greenfield Puppies and Mr. Stephen Stoltzfoos. If we ever choose to adopt again, we will definitely go back to him.
- Jason & Rivkah Weiss,
Two years ago we bought our first mini poodle/maltese/bichon from Stephen Stoltzfoos. Tucker has added so much to our family. We needed a gentle, non shedding puppy to share with my elderly mother. Tucker amazed us. When Mom was on hospice at home, I would spend nights there and wake up with Mom up to 3 times a night. If I didn't hear her right away, Tucker would come and paw at me until I woke up and attended to her. Once Mom passed away, my husband and I often scouted Stephen's web page on Greenfield Puppies and gave ourselves all kinds of excuses why we should not get a second one. Well, one day we called him and took a ride to purchase Lottie-da, who will be Tucker's companion (once she loses her baby teeth). We have spent a month getting used to her puppy ways and falling in love with her. She is the same combination but has different parents. She looks a bit different too. His poodle surfaced, and we are waiting to see what she will look like when she is grown. She is a busy girl, and we can see how Tucker has matured in contrast to her. Trust Stephen. He knows how to breed dogs for health, looks, temperament, and intelligence. We love our babies.

We saw Fiffer (aka Lucy Lou) online and after looking at pages of puppies we knew she was our puppy. My wife has asked for a special puppy for a Kong time, so with Xmas a couple days off it was meant to be.I called and spoke to Stephen, and he was very informative as well as helpful knowing the different puppies and their temperaments. Fiffer (Lucy) was perfect. Stephen offered to ship, but that sweet little creation by God was not going through that ordeal from PA to TX alone! So on the plane I went.First the drive from Philly airport to Stephens farm is incredibly beautiful. Then...WOW this is a dream ranch! Perfectly manicured and one of the most beautiful well maintained farms I have seen anywhere. Stephen and his wife are dedicated and very hard working.We saw several puppies although Stephen assured, Fiffer was best fit. After 30 minutes....she was for sure.One warning....I brought a travel cage but car sickness is something to be prepared with a roll of paper towels and some wipes which I luckily brought.Once to the airport Lucy was tired, and slept the entire two hours ride on my lap (thank you AA) with some ice chips to lick on in between naps. I am so glad I made this trip! Crazy yes, worth it 110%.Home our vets assured this was a well bred puppy, and in perfect health. We love her beyond belief and she loves bossing our 12 yr old Labradoodle and around for Play/Run/Laugh sessions. Already house trained (almost) and sleeping through the night since day one with a. Trip out or two.Buy with confidence! These are warm intelligent committed breeders, who follow their Amish traditions in their lives and with these precious Gods creatures that we will love and enjoy.

We adopted our sweet girl, Riley, a bichon poodle mix from Stephen in September of 2017. I love this little girl more than anything this world could offer me. She is the sweetest, most loving girl. She was the shy runt of the litter who wanted nothing to do with us. She was terrified, but I could not resist her. Now she is attached to me by the hip. I could not come up with a more perfect girl <3
- Kara Mann,
After allot of searching and reading reviews, and of course hundreds of pictures, we found Mr. Stoltzfoos. And are we glad we did. he was patient in answering questions and responsive. Once we made up our mind we made the trip to PA from the DC area. House and property were beautiful and as nice as Stephen was on the phone, him and his wife were even nicer in person. We ended up leaving with Violet (now named Itsy) and could not be happier. she is so sweet, Vet confirmed that she is healthy and was clearly well taken care of. If I could rate higher than 5 stars I would. He is a class act, beautiful and happy puppies. will never look elsewhere if and when we decide to get another dog. thank you so much, we love Itsy
- Micheal Murphy,
We recently made the trip from Pittsburgh to check out a couple of Stephen’s Bichon-poo’s. Once we met Topsy, our search was over. All of the dogs were obviously healthy and happy and very well cared for. Our new pup is an absolute joy. He’s so smart and so sweet. We renamed him Murphy and we are so happy to provide him with his FOREVER HOME. Our experience with Stephen and his wife was exceptional. We could not recommend anyone any stronger.
- Paul Alexander,
We purchased Ansley about 3 weeks ago from Mr. Stoltzfoos. She is a healthy, happy and fun loving dog who we are so happy to have as part of our family. Mr. Stoltzfoos was a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend this breeder.
- Lisa DeVito,
We found Mykonos, a Teddy Bear (previously known as Sarge) on Greenfield and Stephen Stoltzfoos was so wonderful to work with. Stephen is in Pennsylvania and we are in Florida. My husband is a commercial airline pilot and what I was most impressed with is that Stephen just wanted the puppy to fly on the airline that he felt most comfortable with and knew that the puppy would be taken care of. Mykonos has been the best puppy ever and 2 years later we decided to adopt another. We adopted Flynn (previously known as Jemma) another Teddy Bear with the same father, Toby. We drove to Stephen’s after visiting family in Delaware this past Thanksgiving. He and his wife are wonderful and the puppies are well taken care of.
- Dan & Wendy Flynn,
Quest was the puppy I needed. Mr. Stoltzfoos was very patient with me because I had just lost my dog of a 11 years. When I picked up Quest (Fonzie) he was happy to see me and ready to go home. I would recommend Mr. Stoltzfoos and his puppies to anyone one who wants a new best friend!
- yes porter,
Our little Ollie has completed our family and enriched our lives in ways we could never even imagine! Having never purchased a pup before, we didn't know what to expect. Working with Stephen was smooth and delightful. He is Amish so you can trust that everything will be on point. His property is absolutely gorgeous and neat as a pin. We met his wife and she was sweet as can be. Oliver is 7 months now and is happy and healthy, with not a problem from the day we got him. The only regret we have is not getting 2!
- Jen Savoie,
We have had our little guy for a week now. He got a clean bill of health from a vet. He is so affectionate and playful while also able to be calm and cuddley. He is good with our son and all visitors who come over including young niece and nephew. The breeder's home was clean and it was obvious how well cared for and socialized this puppy was before we got him. We would recommend this breeder to friends if anyone asks for a similar breed or where we got him. Who could resist that face?
- Gavi Kestenbaum,
We got our sweet cavachon from Mr Stoltzfoos in April, 2019. Ollie is almost a year old now & we could not imagine a dog with a sweeter temperament. He loves everybody & every dog he meets. He is so adorable, healthy & always happy. He actually slept through the night from day one & was so easy to house train. He could not be any cuter & we just feel like we got the world's greatest dog! Mr & Mrs Stoltzfoos were incredibly kind & patient with us. The farm was immaculate & we really enjoyed our visit. Thank you, Mr & Mrs Stoltzfoos, for our perfect puppy!
- Stephanie Popp,
We love our little Missy! She has brought such joy to our lives. We've had our little girl for 3 months now. We immediately had a great first impression of Stephen Stoltzfoos. When he brought some puppies out for us to see, we could tell that the puppies were well loved. They climbed on his lap and played with him as we all sat on the grass. His care for his dogs was confirmed by our vet at her first examination. He commented on her good health and the obvious care she had received from Mr. Stoltzfoos. We have recommended him as a breeder to many people who have stopped us to ask about our Missy.
When my wife and I bought our new home, we couldn't wait to bring a little furbaby into our home with us. One of our neighbors had a Morkie that we fell in love with and one of our friends got a Maltese through a Greenfield puppies breeder. After searching around, I came across Mr. Stoltzfoos, who has adorable pups and is a highly regarded breeder who has received awards and certifications for the love and care of his pups have. We picked up our little 3-month-old Zippy on Feb 12th, and he was so calm for the 1.5-hour ride home. Once home he knew that it was his home. His personality opened up and is the most lovable pup my wife and I could ever ask for. He is learning well and is starting to let us know when he needs to go outside after only 4 days. I took him to the vet last night, and she said the little guy was in perfect health and said he was adorable and was well taken care of. Mr. Stoltzfoos was a pleasure to work with and is very professional in his work. His property is gorgeous and makes a great home for growing pups. He even provided us with a couple of samples of food to get the pup going. If my wife and I ever decide to get a little brother or sister for our Zippy, we will go back to Mr. Stoltzfoos.
In August of 2014, we happened across the cutest puppy named Pepper. He was three months old and weighed 1.7 lbs. We had to have him right then and there! Our vet was very impressed with him. He was very easy to train and very smart. Mr. Stoltzfoos is a kind breeder and cares for his animals well. To make a long story short, we renamed Pepper to Buddy the Dog, and he has topped out at 6.3 lb, and he is very healthy. If we should find ourselves shopping for a puppy, we will make the drive to Ephrata PA again for sure.
Mia and Jackson,
We purchased Fritz whose new name is Maximus from Stephen Stoltzfoos on Jan 17, 2015. I want to say my 3 hr drive was well worth it. We took him home and, of course, he was calm and hid from us. But 24 hrs later he was acting like a puppy, jumping, playing and biting since he's teething. I had a concern and called Stephen who returned my call and answered all my concerns. Today we took him to the vet, and he is the cutest healthy 5.6lb baby boy. Thanks for the puppy again and would recommend him and his families puppies any day.
We found Luna on Greenfield and Stephen Stoltzfoos was excellent to work with. This was our first puppy, and we had a lot of questions, Stephen was happy to answer them all. Luna has been to her new vet and is very healthy. I highly recommend Stephen Stoltzfoos, if you are looking for a good breeder of Yorkie-chons!
We purchased this puppy at 8 weeks old from Stephen Stolzfoos of Ephrata, PA. The first thing I did when I got her home was take her to the Vet. She is in perfect health and the Vet remarked how well taken care of she was by her breeder. Stephen (Breeder) was so kind and helpful to us answering any questions we had on how to take care of our new little pet. I cannot express myself any better on how grateful we are to Stephen and his family for the warm reception and all the help we received. He is the best example of a caring, honest, loving breeder. Thank you so much for our new family member.
Joe and Tracy ,
We previously had a Bichon for almost 16 years and we decided a year later to get another Bichon because they have the sweetest temperament. A friend told us about Greenfield Puppies. Stephen Stoltzfoos was so polite and friendly and you could tell the puppies were cared for with Love! We welcomed our 16-week old puppy "Shiloh" September 2nd and he is so sweet and happy! We will definitely recommend them to everyone we know. Thank you for our newest family member! We know he will be a part of our family for a very long time!
We purchased a puppy from Mr. Stoltzfoos in Ephrata, PA. We found him on Greenfield Puppies website. A shichon puppy I originally called about was no longer available when I arrived, but he had a litter available of shitzu mix puppies. They were adorable. They were half shitzu and half yorkie-chon. My husband chose the first little pup that came to us and we named her Lucy. Mr. Stoltzfoos was very nice and his family lovely. I took my pup for her first vet visit, and she is in good health. The vet said she seemed very well taken care of. We are very happy and would recommend Mr. Stoltzfoos to others.
I had been trying to adopt a young rescue with poodle in it for quite some time and was getting frustrated. I knew that some people go to Lancaster to get their dogs so I began to research and read about the dogs and their breeders. I found Kirk, now called Tucker, and instantly fell in love with him. So glad rescue didn't work out because I am so very happy with our little Maltichon/Poodle mix that we bought 4 days ago from Stephen Stoltzfoos of Ephrata. This breeder really knows how to combine the parent dogs' best genes in his quest to produce a non-shedding dog with a great temperament. I believe we got an extremely healthy, well-constructed little pet here. Tucker is also adorable, smart, and affectionate, all the things we wanted in a pet. It didn't even take long for the transaction to take place...maybe a half hour. I highly recommend this breeder and his puppies. My husband and I are in our 60's and are smiling a lot more these days. Thank you, Stephen! Having the right dog and being the right owner for him is just plain good for us!
My husband and I drove almost 7 hours to pick up our adorable Teddy Bear puppy from Stephen Stoltzfoos in Ephrata. The minute I talked to him, I knew I had picked the correct breeder. I had seen Louie (Irv) online, fell in love and put in a call. We made arrangements and I have been walking on clouds every second since. The Stoltzfoos farm is immaculate and well taken care of. My puppy was extremely clean, he is really healthy and our bet at home loved his conformation, hip and knee joints, and how healthy he is. I have bonded to this little pup like no other. We are always together, and soon he will be on the motorcycle with me. He has googles and a safe pack to ride in. Now I need the weather to cooperate. I highly recommend Greenfield Puppies and especially Stephen Stoltzfoos. I cannot imagine my life without Louie and all his fuzzy goodness!
We picked up Our puppy Ziggy. Aka Parker from Stephen Stoltzfoos on 12-1-18. Our experience was flawless !! Stephen was very nice and the puppies were just beautiful. Our little boy Ziggy is growing fast and we just want to say Thank you to Stephen for a great experience and a wonderful dog.
When got our Yorkie-Chon puppy from Stephen Stoltzfoos, he took the time and answered all of our questions. We are so happy with our puppy and he is so spoiled and loved in our home. I would recommend Mr. Stoltzfoos to anyone looking for a Yorkie-Chon puppy.
