Shut this place down people! This store has been selling sick and dying dogs for over 25 years. It was just a matter of time before there was a deadly outbreak like this. If you have a sick or dying dog from a pet store, please go to www.caps-web.org and fill out the complaint form. We can help you take action!

This is not true. I bought a dog from them 8 yrs ago and she is fine. Not all dogs have a problem. You just had a bad experience with yours.

No stores should be selling cats or dogs. Places like Happiness is Pets and Furry Babies should be shut down. If you want a cat or a dog, you should be getting it from a shelter or from a reputable breeder on which you have done your homework. Buying a cat or a dog from a pet store is just asking for trouble.

Pets from a shelter can have alot of problems also. I know of people who got dogs from reputable breeders and have had problems also.

Tom, I totally agree. When you are ready to obtain a pet, you need to do a LOT of homework. And even then, there is always the chance that you might have a problem. I think you have to factor that in as well. However, I would think that statistically, you have less of a chance of a problem with a shelter pet (especially one that has already been checked by a vet) or one from a reputable breeder than one from a pet store that likely came from a puppy mill.
