As a suprise for my fiance, I decided to buy her a peke puppy. We already had a male one at home and we felt that the time was right for him to get a companion. I bought a puppy, took care of it for 3 whole days....and all of a sudden the puppies health started deteoriating. First she stopped mingling, than she stopped eating, then she started puking (first mucousy) then blood...we were awestruck at the rate her little body was deteriorating and it was just torture to see her so sick. On the way to the vet she pooped out blood. It was as if her whole insides were turning out.
A moment that was our happiest now turned out to be our worst. We went from having a new puppy, a new companion to being scared and completely helpless grown individuals. The vet told us she had Parvo and has had it for a week...which means we were sold an infected puppy. We were also told that we had to worry about our dog at home as well as it is an extremely transferable deadly disease. It was the worst time ever...they were rude to us when we went back crying. They yelled at us for bringing back the sick dog that they sold us...we were treated like s**t/lepers...i mean seriously u sell us a sick dog and you scorn us when we confront you. The service was pathetic...they said they would care for the puppy when we returned her and call back by mid-day to know her updates. When we called back the store, they told us they had to put our little baby to sleep. It was heart wrenching and it was also the first time, something and someone made me, a grown man, cry my heart out for the little life that got stolen from our hands because of 1) their lack of vaccinating their puppies against diseases and then 2) their nerve to sell a sick, unvaccinated dog.
Its not about the money, its not about me! its abt the way these puppies are getting treated and the heartbreak that families have to go through. Its been a year and we still get scared that our peke at home can get sick. The paro virus stays dormant for 2 years within the body so we are out of harms way next year.
I hope you will be smart enough to never buy a dog from here and alwyas make sure you buy a puppy who has been in a loved and nurtured enviroment
