OOps, should have read two litters...
I agree with you 100%, great info... I have been threatened, called names and bad mouthed constantly over the years because of what Ive been saying about Glamorous Pooch. That never stopped me and it wasnt going to stop me until I put these slime balls out of business. We have to speak for these poor little innocent creatures,they dont deserve a puppy mill life..How can anyone sleep at night that is involved with this inhumane practice..All to make a buck, get a decent job and make a honest living

Unfortunately or fortunately, Glamorous Pooch has gone out business. The first dog I bought from them had gotten sick after the third day I had him. I found out he had cocidia (sp)as well. I thought he wet himself in his kennel but there was a clear gooey residue all over him. I had to bathe him in the middle of the night and called the owners the next morning and they came by and picked him up and took him to work to have him checked out by the vet that just so happened to be coming in that morning to check all the puppies. He came home to us that night and was better within 24 hours. I think when you have that many puppies around each other that aren't all vaccinated, they are bound to pass things around. Even a year later when I took mine in to get groomed, they would always get sick within the first day or two after being groomed so I had to stop taking them there. I used to stop in with my kids just to see the puppies and play with them but after awhile they stopped putting the puppies out where people could see them. I was wondering if they were cutting back on the amount of puppies they were buying. Towards the end, the couple times I went in, the place smelled horrible. I was starting to wonder if they were taking care of the puppies properly. I have to say, going out of business was probably the best thing for the pups.
Too bad it took this long for them to close, hopefully they earn a honest living now, Im sure they will relocate and open in a different name, thats what all puppy mill owners do..

Glamorous Ooch is now By appointment only, the reason for this is too many people were just walking in to a smelly dirty enviroment, now they will have time to make the enviroment appropiate.. This is very common for people that deal with puppy mill pups..and this following statement should not even be allowed on their site. This is the biggest false advertisment Ive seen yet,..OMG!!! "READ ON ALMOST MAKES YOU LAUGH! the years we have proudly built a strong and personal network of
reputable breeders from all over the country. "ASK THEM FOR THE NAME AND LOCATION, YOU WILL BE GIVEN A RUN AROUND) Many of the breeders
associated with our program belong to professional breeding
organizations. They are dedicated professionals who are passionate
about improvement and education in animal husbandry. Not only are
they registered within their own states as breeders, but many of them
have also taken another step and acquired a USDA license as well. "USDA DONT MEAN SHIT! MOST PUPPY MILLS THAT HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN ARE USDA)
This is important because of the new laws that went into effect on
October 9th, 2009 regarding breeding practices within Pennsylvania.
The laws raised the standards to a higher level and enforced the
toughest laws in the country. Today, most of the commercial kennels
(aka-Puppy Mills) in PA were forced to close and surrender their
breeders to rescues or auctions. It is with great pride we can tell you
that our network is not only intact but continues to grow! Our breeder
partners follow and/or exceed these strict new regulations and are
subject to several "surprise" inspections per year. Breaking tradition
and striving for paw-fection we have always partnered directly with
breeders themselves and many of those are on a cosignment basis, The end.......... "IS THAT FUNNY OR WHAT, THESE PLACES THROW USDA AROUND like it means something, look it up..it really means NOTHING!!" Well I have come this far and I do know they will never survive on internet sales. This is too impersonal and most people do not want to buy their best friend online..It may take two more years but until they are gone completely I will be here...Good Luck Wendy on your new venture :))))

I'm wondering what they did with the puppies that were left when they closed their doors. The building is up for sale so if they have any pups left, they must be keeping them in their home.

When they lived in Red Lion PA and sold Puppies they sold them right from their townhouse. So now I'm sure they will do they same.

Hundreds of thousands of dogs suffer in puppy mills in this country. The dogs are prisoners of greed. They are locked in small cages. They freeze in the winter and swelter in the summer. The dogs never get out of their prisons. They are bred over and over again until they die. The only way to free them from the misery of these horrid puppymills is to eliminate the demand for puppies by refusing to buy a puppy in a pet store and boycotting those pet stores that sell puppies. When people stop buying puppies in pet stores, the puppy mills will go out of business and the misery will end. The state and federal governments do not enforce the laws to protect the dogs. The commercial breeders and brokers have huge well-funded lobbying efforts. Please join this fight to free the prisoners of greed. The only person who is going to make a difference for the dogs suffering in puppy mills is you. You, the people, can free them from their puppy mill prisons. IF THE AD SAYS GLAMOROUS POOCH....STAY AWAY...THEY WENT FROM PET STORE TO LIVING ROOM FLOOR

The store is closed and for sale. I don't know how they can continue doing business from their home.
I don't trust buying any animals from them. I bought two dogs and the one is only 2years old and has Addison's Disease. He has always been nuerotic as well. It is like having a baby in the house that you have to watch constantly. The other dog is fine, health wise so far. If I ever buy animals again, it will be from a breeder directly or a shelter. I think the people from G.P. should get real jobs like everyone else. Quit buying puppy mill puppies and they will hopefully stop trying to breed these poor animals to death. If you really love animals, stop thinking about any one particular pet store or people who sell them and get the word out to people not to buy from pet stores. Another store to stay away from is Getty's in east york. Those poor dogs are in small cages all day long. Tell me they're not from puppy mills.

Hello everyone, I have two things to say about Glamorous Pooch THEY SUCK!! My opinion has nothing to do with this blog, it is from personal experience. I pray for the day this place gets shut down. I spoke with a lady named Emma Stoltzfus from Lancaster County and boy I wish I would have spoken to her before I bought my YorkiePoo, I love my dog to death but YES they do get thier dogs from mills and these poor pups go through hell before arriving at this "awesome pet store" These people ought to be ashamed of themselves!!

instead of you law-makers worrying about puppy mills how about old folk nursing homes???
Puppy mills can be regulated and helped. They should not be shut down. Regulated yes shut down no unless you have a place to the animals to go till they are adopted and not put to death.
Every animal and person deserves a chance at life which is more humane instant death or a chance at life regardless of it's quality???
But if you want to do something good seriously go after nursing homes who basically neglect the old folks till their death robbing them in the process.
Did you know the lower grade nursing homes have 4 people to a room. The poor residents can't even keep clothing or any other items with out them disappearing.
Wait till you legislatures are old one day your bratty kids will sell all of your crap you worked so hard to get(corruption and legal theivery) and dump you old ass in a home. I hope it's in one of the above mentioned too unless your willing to do something to help these poor folks before it's your turn???
Greedy scoundrels, people who sell dogs have money for you to go after the poor old folks have nothing so I guess they are not worth your time right.....
You law makers need to start doing the right things for people and let the people who save animals that otherwise would be put to death alone and you all should be very ashamed turning a blind eye and your backs on our old folks.
Now quit harrassing the animal people and get busy on those Alleged "Nursing homes"

who the fck cares???
If your so concerned about alleged puppy mills go adopt some dogs which by the way how many do you own???
I find it interesting that people who save animals get there balls busted for not being up to code so to speak which if you ask me is a matter of opinion and if it is the case an easy fix yet nursing homes are legal human mills and no one gives a shit about that of puts it out there for discussion even still it's one of those things where every one knows but pretends not to care until it's your loved ones rotting in there....
Just saying animals could be controlled through better legislation for example and for starters only registered breaders should be allowed to breed. Secondly unless the animals are going to be brought and bread them selves breeders should be required to fix the animal before it is adopted. I think it's because of people who shouldn't be breeding them like people who want make a buck or 2 cause why else would you be breeding if your not registered and than you could have better animal control but those lazy asses in the seats are good for nothing as you can see....
