Scott and Roxanne Duff, of Leechburg, must also perform 10 hours of community service.
Police in Leechburg, about 25 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, say the couple reported two puppies that wandered onto their property on Labor Day. Police say the couple helped return one to its owner, but told officers the other puppy had run away.
Police charged that the Duffs had really sold the second dog on Craigslist. It has since been returned.
The couple's attorney tells the Valley News Dispatch ( http://bit.ly/Ti0CvU) they couldn't find a shelter for the dog on the holiday and denied any evil intent.
