How did you hear about shop passing by on street 
Please describe conditions My puppy was housed with a golden retriever puppy in a cage with a glass viewing window. Other dogs in shop were energetic, mine was sleeping when first seen. I attributed it to young age, now realize she was not well. Pomeranian was put in play area to help the puppy wake up and not be shy. Told she was quiet because she had just arrived in the store two days before. Play area and store seemed clean, puppy was bathed before going home. Salesperson sent home canned food in case the puppy would not eat in new home. Now know puppy was docile and not eating because she was ill.
