How did you hear about shop We live in the area and walked into this pet shop. After we purchased Charlie and he became sick, we began to investigate into the pet shop and they have a horrible reputation for selling puppy mill puppies and not standing behind the animals when they get sick. 
Please describe conditions The animals live in small cages with no bedding. They sleep on a metal floor which has openings for the feces and urine to go into underneath. At times, more than one animal is in a cage and there are signs on the cages that say "animals cannot play anymore today". I wonder if this is because the animal is sick.
