How did you hear about shop Through a friend 
Please describe conditions The conditions from the front look pretty clean. However the dogs are kept in glass cages in the front, with some of the bigger dogs kept in smaller metal cages in the back. There is a small water bowl in the front cages but not cages in the back. Most of the puppies are very small and look malnourished with bones showing. There is no food bowls displayed in the front nor the back, so it's hard to tell if their being properly fed
