     Soon, other problems started to arise with Scratch: "The first sign of trouble was the tremors of White Shakers Disease. Imagine your dog shivering in fear, and then double that. Scratch was treated for a year with steroids and Valium. The tremors seemed to go away. Then about a year later Scratch began to have seizures."

     FINAL UPDATE: Mr. Schulz is out of the "dog business" forever. He died on June 28, 2022.

     15 May 2014 UPDATE: In 2011, Pretty Penny Kennels applied for and was granted a "temporary license" under WI Act 90. However, Mr. Schulz declined to upgrade his facilities to comply with the new regulations, so was denied a permanent license.

     Under the law, Mr. Schulz may still sell fewer than 25 dogs a year, from three litters. If you have reason to suspect that he is selling more dogs, or are concerned about the conditions in which his remaining dogs are being kept, please see our Filing a Complaint page for details on how to contact DATCP with your concerns!
