Overview of Puppies for Sale in Florida

Florida is the 3rd largest state in the United States with a population of 22 million people or roughly 7.9 million households or families. Of this Floridian population, 56% own a pet, while 39% own a dog. In fact, dogs are more popular than cats with Florida's families, where only 24% of Florida's households own a cat.

While dogs are very popular in Florida, some breeds are favored more than others. The most popular breed in Florida is the German Shepherd Dog, followed by the Labrador Retriever and the Golden Retriever. However, the breed preference of the inhabitants of this coast-dwelling state varies by city and county! In Tampa for instance, the most popular dog breed is the small but outstanding French Bulldog.

Which Cities are Best for Dog Owners in Florida?

Safewise developed a ranking of pet-friendliness across US states. Their ranking considers the state's pet population, availability of pet-friendly rentals, animal protection laws (including legislation against puppy mills), and veterinary reporting requirements. According to the Safewise, Florida ranks as the 17th most pet-friendly state in America. Many cities in Florida are home to reputable breeders, great veterinary services, and pet-friendly businesses, making them great places for pet parents to find and raise a furry companion. A few of these cities include:

St. Petersburg, FL


SmartAsset has named St. Petersburg the most dog-friendly city in America.This is due to the high density of pet stores, veterinarians, and pet-friendly restaurants throughout the city. So if you live in St. Pete, don't fret - the city has your companion covered!

Miami, FL


Miami-Dade County is located at the tip of South Florida and is the largest county in Florida with a population of 2.7 million people. With that size, the county offers a variety of dog parks, beaches, and activities where your furry companion can meet new friends and exercise. If you live in Miami, we recommend a day visit to the Key West Nature Preserve and Key West Aquarium, (a pet-friendly aquarium) which your dog is sure to love. Other pet-friendly parks and beaches that we recommend exploring in the area include Haulover Beach Dog Park, Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, and South Pointe Park.

Orlando, FL

Orlando is a beautiful city surrounded by stunning lakes and parks. If you live in Orlando, we recommend taking your furry friend to Lake Eola Park, where you're sure to meet other pet parents and their furrbabies. If you're there over a weekend, you can then stop by World of Beer, a pet-friendly space featuring a beer selection from across the world. If your dog loves the outdoors, you can explore the Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve, which is less than an hour drive from Orlando. This is the perfect place for active dog breeds who love to run around and explore nature.

How Much Does a Puppy Cost in Florida?

Puppies for sale in Florida from reputable breeders typically range between $1,100 and $4,200. This price varies depending on the dog breed and experiences of the breeder. Breeders certified by national registries (such as the American Kennel Club Bred with Heart Program) may demand higher prices. This is to support their high quality breeding practices, which can be both time and resource consuming.

Puppies listed at very cheap prices may be advertised by puppy mills or backyard breeders. Be wary of such listings, as they reflect poor breeding practices and low quality of care.

Pet-Friendly Attractions in Florida

As a state of coasts to both the east and the west, and multiple state and national parks, Florida is the right place for water loving animals. While parks like the renowned Biscayne National Park and Big Cypress National Reserve are outstanding for weekend hiking and camping with your furry companion, there are also many locations throughout the state suitable for day visits.

For an off-leash dog beach in Southeast Florida, we recommend Jupiter Dog Beach in Jupiter, FL, which is a short drive north of West Palm Beach. Your dog is free to roam and swim in the designated dog area of this beach; your visit there is sure to make loving memories and beautiful photos of smiling furry friends.

For a similar experience on the west cost of Florida, we recommend Clearwater North Beach, located just west of Tampa. Tampa was selected by SmartAsset as the 3rd most pet-friendly city in America. This is due to the pet supplies, pet stores, veterinarians, and pet-friendly locations in the city. Clearwater's pristine, white sands, and turquoise water are a sight for both you and your pet. Don't miss out on this adventure with your dog and also enjoy beach activities like paddleboarding and jet-skiing.

If you live in Southwest Florida, Gulfside City Park is our recommended getaway location for picnicing and outdoorsy activities with your pet. The beaches here offer plenty of marine life and are seashells galore! Given the beautiful scenery, it's also the perfect setting for your pup to pose with cute looks for instagram.

How to Find a Reputable Breeder in Florida

Florida is home to one of the largest breeder networks in America! But making sense of which breeders are good, ethical, and caring vs. dangerous, inexperienced, or an outright puppy mill is difficult. So we suggest that you find breeders through sources that have thoroughly vetted breeders offering puppies for sale. You can also check if the breeder is registered with a national club, such as the American Kennel Club's Breeder of Merit Program.

While public sources such as Facebook, Craigslist, and other classified sites have many breeders, you may find it difficult distinguishing between the "good" and the "bad" on these sites. At Mawoo Pets, our breeder network is vetted for health, safety, and socialization standards to ensure a high standard of health, safety, and socialization. All puppies posted for sale from these ethical breeders come with the Mawoo Pets health guarantee. Even more, you can schedule a video chat over the internet with any of our breeders, to get to know them before bringing your new puppy home!

If you find a puppy for sale in Florida that is more than a driving distance from your home, our staff can arrange for the travel of that perfect puppy to your doorsteps. We will coordinate delivery by a certified travel provider and communicate all details to you. Our customer service team is available 7 days a week to answer any questions you have.

As you select a breeder to buy a puppy from, research widely and compare their experiences and prices. It's not always the case that more experienced breeders are more expensive. You may find a more affordable puppy from a breeder who has more years of experience, a better health guarantee, and a higher quality of service.

What are Florida's Pet Laws?

There are plenty of pet laws in Florida to keep both pets and the community safe! Some of Florida's state laws aim to prevent harm from dangerous dogs. For instance, if your pet attacks or hurts another pet or livestock, you will be held liable for all such damages. If this happens, your dog will be designated a dangerous animal, must be registered, and you'll need to post a sign on your home to notify neighbors. So we recommend always having your dog on a leash in public areas, and getting training and behavioral support for your dog if it's aggressive.

There are also county-specific laws that prohibit ownership of specific dog breeds or activities. For instance, in the Miami-Dade area, it is illegal to own an American Pitbull Terrier. Also, your dog not allowed to create unreasonable noise. So be careful of barking-prone breeds in apartments or spaces with nearby neighbors. If you live in Florida, we recommend reviewing the full list ofFlorida Dangerous Dog lawsand researching local laws that could impact you and your furry friend.
