This breeder is unlicensed by the USDA.  The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires that all
breeders with more than 3 female dogs, who are selling puppies through wholesale channels (such at pet stores), must be licensed and inspected by the USDA.

Normally, I recommend waiting to file a complaint with USDA against an unlicensed breeder until it becomes evident that they are operating in violation of the law.  I will continue to monitor this breeder for further activity, and file a complaint, should I feel there is evidence of illegal activity.  If you would like to file a complaint now, to have this matter investigated by USDA, you can do so by following the instructions on this page:
