Couple who sold puppies from illegal 'pet shop' avoid jail

A couple who sold sick puppies from an illegal "pet shop" have been spared jail. 


Marco Tondo and his accomplice Nadine Campbell both pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to selling the animals from a Bishopbriggs property without a licence.


Several of the puppies sold by 32-year-old Tondo and 31-year-old Campbell became ill and two subsequently died. 


Tondo was sentenced to 270 hours of community service and Campbell was handed a three-month restriction of liberty order, meaning she'll be tagged and unable to move freely at certain times. 


Tondo also pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court last month to causing unnecessary suffering by failing to provide care contrary to the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006.
