Good for you!!! I am so glad that you saw the red flags and did not purchase a dog from Stephanies. I wish that everyone were that perceptive. It would be great if she were forced to shut down. I can only imagine the conditions under which the parent dogs live!!

Very true Stephanie hides all her animals and bring them to the shop and then makes up prices as she goes.! Beware something isn't right she has over 500+ dogs between Lancaster pa and Maryland...

Is this the business that moved into 353 rock springs rd - for years it was a little store then empty - maybe conowingo market it was called - anyway i noticed doggy beds in the window one day but no sign on any doors.
You're right. My sister made the mistake of going into her store and fell in love with a puppy and unfortunately put down a cash deposit of $200. I researched Stephanie's Designer Puppies at 353 Rock Springs Road in Conowingo after I found out and saw nothing but awful comments and warnings. I advised my sister that this is a puppy mill and when she went back to collect her refund she was given a CHECK for only $150. The receipt stated no monetary refunds but, did not state as Stephanie told my sister, that she had to take $50 for putting out new advertisements for this puppy my sister was not purchasing. Hopefully, this check doesn't bounce and my sister has learned a lesson. I mostly feel sorry for the animals.

just a week and half ago my husband and I drove 70 miles with a promise of a female chorkie .beware of stephanies puppies we were duped .we were told we could not come down till after 9 fri. night the children were at bible study.thats got to be part of the con .we got there to find out the puppy in the pic was much bigger than portrayed. we told her that we wanted a female and she showed us the dog that was in the pic a female.we decided to purchase the female chorkie for 370.00.the dog had a coughing problem I called her and told her about this and she told me to give it Benadryl or robitussin.i decide to have the dog checked by a vet only to find out that she is a he with a testicle that has not descended which can cost me 500. to fix and he has tonsillitis.we were shocked to find out that our dog was a male. she also gave us fake vet papers . I tried to call the vet and of course no answer.also our vet said HE was not a chorkie. do yourself a favor DO NOT BUY FROM STEPHANIES PUPPIES!

What do we have to do to make Stephanie legally responsible for her actions, not to mention the awful conditions in which the parents and puppies are raised?

We purchase a Shorkie from her 9 months ago. We were told it would not grow more than 10 lbs. She had the yorkie father there. Our dog is now almost 20 lbs. and the vet agrees there is no yorkie in it.

Does Deep Run Kennel treat their dogs properly? It is a puppy mill or commercial breeder?

We had the same situation and are wondering how your puppy is now. We are concerned that these are lifelong defects and we will be constantly paying for vet bills. How is your puppy feeling? Please help.
We purchased an alleged maltipoo for 636 just a few days before Christmas for the kids. very sketchy conditions. we spent a lot of money at the vet and the er once our puppy developed a lot of problems. Ultimately our puppy had to be put down. She was given no chance to survive without an oxygen chamber to help her breathe. Our puppy Molly was adorable, cute, smart and a part of our family. Alot of red flags with this so called business. Based off what the doctors had told us she more then likely had a defect that was not as obvious until the puppy got a bit older and developed a little more. Her heart rate jumped thru the roof oxygen levels dropped off the chart and she couldn't breathe at all. died almost instantly afterwards. we had Molly for just a little over a month. my guess would have to be it would be a long term condition.

Wow my friend and I just bought a fig from her 3 weeks ago and she lied about the birthdates and now I'm wondering if they are even a full breed like she said also she told me via a text that she would sell me female for 600 dollars when I got there she said they all sold out. She is a liar she just told me that at 11 pm then when I went there at 2 pm the next day when she opened at 2pm she was sold out. I heard her tell another lady the same. I'm going to report her puppy mill I hope they shut her sorry ass down.

Stop buying designer dogs! They are simply mixed breeds that these unscrupulous dealers are getting big bucks for. Ripping the public off!

If you want a mixed breed? Rescue!!
