Miscellaneous:
This breeder appears unlicensed  by the state of Pennsylvania.  PA maintains databases of licensed breeders, with information available on the # of animals they have, and usually inspection reports.  To search PA listings, visit this site: http://services.agriculture.state.pa.us/KennelInspections/SearchKennelInspections.aspx

This breeder appears to be unlicensed by USDA.  There is a possibility that the breeder has recently been licensed and is not yet appearing on public record or the breeder may be exempt from licensing.  I will continue to monitor this breeder for any further activity.  In the meantime, if you feel your puppy was sold illegally, you can contact USDA to have the matter investigated.  A sample complaint form can be found at http://www.petshoppuppies.com/fac.htm
