    Both problems are easy to solve.
    The solution of the first one is: the pets' price are given by the
    experience they have. since the animals on pet shop has no exp 
    (and I don't why, pl7 is all ok about this), their price becomes
    zero. What you can do is get the mob file and change their exp
    or get the values from pl7, which will work all fine
    For the shop the problem is: when you build a shop, you put in the
    files the virtual number of the shop (I think in your case it's 
    useless, but I'm not pretty sure of that), the virtual number of 
    the shopkeeper and WHERE the shopkeeper must be to sell anything.
    This is probably the trouble. Read the documentation about 
    building a shop, it's really very-well explained there how to 
    build a shop.
    I hope it is useful...
