Many pet shops avoid the stricter documentation requirements of the AKC and instead register their puppies with an "alternative" registry (Continental Kennel Club, APR, APRI, NKC, and others).

Some puppy mill puppies are sold to pet shops and marketed as young as eight weeks of age. The lineage records of puppy mill dogs are often falsified, and puppy mill dogs are often plagued with health problems.

Charm City Puppies wants to change the way you think about puppy stores! We are not your typical pet store. Our adorable puppies romp, play, and socialize in open baby cribs. Our boutique offers toys, treats, clothing and accessories you may not be able to find at most pet shops.Don’t support the industry.
Most pet shop puppies come from puppy mills, and so do most dogs sold over the Internet. Pet shop puppies are separated from their mother at as young as six weeks of age. The health of the puppies is not always guaranteed.Even if the standards were adequate, they're not enforced! Take a look at a done by the Inspector General on USDA's lax enforcement of the law regulating breeders (heads up, it's a little graphic!) and judge for yourself whether USDA licensing of puppy mills is enough to make you shop at stores that sell puppies. We don't think it is! In fact, you only have to be licensed by USDA as a commercial breeder if you are selling puppies to pet stores or brokers! So USDA licensure is actually a pretty good indicator that the breeders are, in fact, puppy mills! Small hobby breeders who sell their dogs directly to the public, including those who only sell their puppies online, do not have to be licensed or inspected by USDA.The cuteness may be overwhelming the first time you enter Charm City Puppies. You will often hear gasps of delight as first-time customers stop in their tracks when they realize that they aren’t dreaming (no, we are not exaggerating!). The most you may ever see are displayed in stylish cribs and playpens. They have plenty of room to run around and socialize with other puppies. This allows each puppy’s unique and lovable personality to shine through. You will be captivated by the bright, happy environment inside. The elegant decor, cheerful environment, and unprecedented cleanliness make this little puppy shop a one-of-a-kind place. Just ask and our staff will show you to one of our Puppy Parks, where you can play and bond with your potential puppy.
