Put him in a cage and see how he likes it. Glad to hear news, but he should be tarred, feathered, his nails pulled out and ridden out of town on a rail. Doesn't fit his type of store, what a load of bull----.

Thank goodness it is about time. What these precious lives have had to endure is beyond words. This needs to be monitored and you should be able to walk in to these places with NO NOTICE and inspect the conditions. Make the price of the licenses enough to help pay for the inspectors of these dog breeders. For too long they have made to much money at the expense of these innocent victims.
