How did you hear about shop It is a store near my house. I went in there for food for my other dogs.  
Please describe conditions First it was small, crowded, dirty, cages and floors unclean. Then someone else bought it and bought a bigger space next to where the former location was. They then began using these little pins and booths so you could play with the puppies. It was clean, but some puppies have runny eyes and noses, are listless, and don't seem right. They will sell older ones or sick ones at reduced rates. They also sell a lot of designer mutts.
