Overview of Puppies for Sale in Kentucky

Kentucky is the 25th most populous state in America with 4.52 million residents. Kentuckians are amongst the highest pet-owning Americans. A study from the American Veterinary Medical Associationfound that 64% of Kentuckians are pet owners, while 46.5% own dogs specifically. This is compared to a national average of 57% pet ownership and 38.4% dog ownership.

So what are the most popular dog breeds in this dog-loving state? PennLive partnered with AKC to investigate the most popular dog breeds in Kentucky. What they found was that the Beagle is the most popular dog breed in Kentucky! In fact, the Beagle is the officialState Dog of Kentucky. Rounding out the top 5 dog breeds in this report were the German Shepherd Dog, Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, and English Bulldog.

At Mawoo Pets, we have found some additional breeds popular amongst our Kentucky customers: French Bulldog, Shih Tzu, Siberian Husky, and Bernese Mountain Dog. Kentuckians appreciate a variety of dog breeds, in size, temperament, and energy, reflecting the varied love of dogs across the Bluegrass State.

Which Cities Are Best for Dog Owners in Kentucky?

Kentucky is home to pet-friendly cities and wonderful natural habitat for time outdoors with your pup. In fact, some of Kentucky's larger cities rank amongst the most pet-friendly cities in America. A study by WalletHub placed two of Kentucky's largest cities amongst the Top 50 pet friendly cities in America: Lexington, KY and Louisville, KY.

Lexington-Fayette, KY


Lexington is home to a range of pet-friendly businesses, pet services, pet shops and supply stores, and wonderful outdoor activities for your pup. It's no wonder that Lexington, KY ranked 7th on WalletHub's list of Top 100 pet-friendly American cities. For a fun outing day in Lexington with your pup, make a visit to the Kentucky Horse Park, a vast attraction where you and your dog can take in Kentucky's love of horses. For off-leash dog parks, visit the Masterson Station Dog Park, the Jacobson Dog Park, or the Coldstream Dog Park. For a laid-back weekend activity, consider the Grimes Mill Winery or Mirror Twin Brewing, which offer a dog-friendly atmosphere to enjoy drinks and snacks.

Louisville, KY


Louisville is an outstanding city to raise a dog. Not only is the city home to plenty of dog-friendly businesses, but it also boasts outstanding veterinary and pet wellness centers, such as theHillview Animal Hospital Pet Wellness Program. Taking advantage of such resources can help ensure that your pup lives a long and happy life.
Louisville is home to outstanding dog parks and outdoor spaces for keeping your pup active. Examples include Iroquois Park, Central Park, and Morton Ave Dog Park. For a twist on the traditional dog park, visit the Club K9 Dog Park, where you can enjoy a drink while your canine companion explores the playful premises.

Louisville is a very dog-friendly city, you can even take your dog to breweries!

How Much Does a Puppy Cost in Kentucky?

The price of puppies for sale in Kentucky vary significantly depending on the dog breed, the breeder's reputation and experience, the location of the breeder, and the time of year.
On Mawoo Pets, the price of puppy listings in Kentucky typically range from $1,000 to $3000, with an average price of $1,700 for an available puppy. While popular breeds such as the French Bulldog tend to be listed at the higher end of this price range (or even exceeding the maximum), other breeds that are more commonly available can be priced more affordably.

Some breeders advertise puppies that are excessively cheap (for instance, below $400). Be wary of these breeders as they may be puppy mill operations that breed large quantities of puppies. That is both unethical and unhealthy for the puppies and dams. Others may be backyard breeders who have conducted little diligence on the breeding parents and may overlook important shots, health tests, or veterinary inspections.

It is costly and time-consuming to raise a healthy puppy and to keep your breeding parents in good health. It is important to purchase from a high-quality breeder to ensure that you are finding a puppy ethically and also helping eliminate harmful breeding practices.

How Do I Find a Reputable Breeder in Kentucky?

If you are thinking of bringing home a new puppy, first consider adopting from a local shelter or rescue. You can begin by searching for available puppies at your nearby Humane Society. Example shelters in Kentucky include the Louisville Animal Shelter or theHopkins County Humane Society.

If you are unable to find the right match for your home through these channels, then consider purchasing from a reputable dog breeder. While there are many ethical breeders in Kentucky, you can also explore available breeders in nearby states such as Missouri, Indiana, and Illinois for a broader search. Finding a reputable dog breeder is important, as it helps ensure that your puppy is healthy and is bred from breeding parents with good temperaments.

Once you find a dog breeder, you should make a site visit to examine the condition of the premises and breeding parents. In your visit, you should ask for vet paperwork, copies of kennel registrations or certifications (for instance, the American Kennel Club Bred With Heart Program), health guarantees, and relevant genetic testing of the breeding parents. Such information helps you assess the quality of the dog breeder and avoid puppy mills or backyard breeders.

At Mawoo Pets, we have made this vetting process easy by selecting 1,000+ reputable breeders across the United States and Canada. We have assessed relevant information from our dog breeders to allow you to purchase with trust and confidence. Our team is available every day to respond to your inquiries about a specific puppy, breed, or breeder in Kentucky via email, text message, or live chat.

Finally, if you find the perfect puppy for your home, our team can coordinate for the safe arrival of your pup to you. Whether a Great Dane or Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, our pet travel team can transport your puppy to your door or nearby airport for pickup.
