I purchased pansies in April and planted them in pots outside. They are still alive but becoming very viney - how can I keep them hearty?

You can pinch them back to encourage a bushy growth pattern. When each flower is spent, pinch it back, along with the stem. New stems and new flowers will emerge from just behind the point where you pinched it.
