That being said, that is one really really tough to do, to give a dog back to those conditions. I hope everything works out for the best!

Maybe it's just me, but every one of those puppies in the pictures on that site looks miserable. They (J&L) seem horrible, and I hope you can continue to spread the word about this money-hungry excuse for a breeder.

At least, you saved the dog from those conditions. Heaven knows if you guys didn't take them out of there if worse could have happened to them...such as becoming the next line to be bred. I appreciate you all looking after them after discovering that they were in fact from a puppy mill. I would definitely team up and bring them down

I could only agree with that if they hadn't paid them money.... Sadly, that line of thinking encourages enabling. People think they are saving puppies from pet stores, too, when really, they are just giving them a profitable sale to allow them to buy more from mills..... Just my two cents. This is why researching is sooooo important before buying a puppy....

PA has tons of puppy mills/commercial kennels. Unfortunately, there's not much that can be done to stop puppy mills such as J&L if they have the proper licenses, are up to code, and are passing inspections.
Really your best bet is to spread the word!

gregt915, definitely have your vet take a very close look at your puppy. Seizures can be a symptom of serious health issues.
Also take a look at this so that you know your rights/the law should it be necessary!
Consumers: Protecting Consumers - Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General
If the breeders break this act then you can file a complaint with the attorney general. I would also notify your local animal control or humane officers.

Over here on the Jersey side, we have articles popping up every once in a while about these mills, especially from the Lancaster Pa area. From what we are led to believe here, they are making progress in shutting down and rescuing all the whelping bitches. I hope they are making good progress like they are leading us to believe.

Several years ago a new bill was put into place which raised the bar statewide for commercial kennel regulations. It has helped to shut down kennels and still is, but for kennels following the current regulations and passing inspections there's not a whole lot to do. The only way they'll close is if it is no longer financially worth it to keep the kennel open.

Sad, but true. Though, all in all, the only way to make it not financially worth it to keep their kennels open is to stop buying their puppies. And you're right, helping spread the word about where NOT to buy a puppy is all we can do about these particular kinds of "breeders".

If you call expressing the concern of how the animals are kept they should do a surprise visit. Or are all the visits surprise visits? If so PA should step up on their animal cruelty and kennel laws!
