How did you hear about shop NEIGHBOR 
Please describe conditions THEY'VE SINCE MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION DUE TO A CITY ORDINANCE BANNING PET SHOPS FROM SELLING ANIMALS THAT ARENT FROM LOCAL SHELTERS, BUT WHEN I WAS PURCHASING MY PUPPY, THE PET SHOP LOOKED FAIRLY CLEAN, THE CAGES WERENT TOO CROWDED, AND MESSES WERE PROMPTLY CLEANED UP FROM WHAT I COULD TELL. MOST OF THE ANIMALS LOOKED TO BE IN GOOD HEALTH AND SPIRITS, A FEW WERE EITHER DEPRESSED/LETHARGIC OR JUST TIRED, HARD TO TELL. THEY MADE EVERYONE USE HAND SANITIZER BEFORE HANDLING THE PUPPIES, AND NO ONE WAS ALLOWED TO STAND AND HOLD A PUPPY IN CASE THEY DROPPED IT.
