Gabbis story

Petland Monroeville - Gabbis story
I want to tell Gabbis Story. We purchased a pekingese puppy from the Monroeville Petland December of 2017. At first glance she was healthy and vibrant and we couldnt wait to being her home. Hearing the horror stories of Petland I was skeptical but it wasnt her fault where she came from and needed love and care too so we bought her and immediately took her to a vet and got her groomed. She had upper respiratory and was a carrier of giardia. Within the next month or so we noticed she couldnt walk without limping and her legs werent right. I just started a job at a rehab for pets and the dr said she had elbow dysplasia in both front legs and her nose opening was too small and all 3 would require surgery for a healthy pain free lufe. We first started with chiropractic and orthopedic braces for her legs to see if she would grow out of it. She then started to get multiple utis that would not seem to go away. The dr said she had a recessed vulva and would need surgery on that as well. Thats 4 separate surgeries this pup would need ranging over $10,000 before she was even 2 years old. Not to mention the 4000$ i already spent on utis and chiropractic and pain management. I reported all of these condtions to Petland and they said they already paid me up to the price of the dog and it wasn't their problem anymore even though it all came from bad breeding which could of been prevented. Im not sure how these places are legally still allowed to operate as its not within the standards of good welfare for the pets. I've also worked for a vet that worked for these stores and watched multiple puppies under the age of 6 months pass away from anything from cdiff to parvo. Someone needs to speak up for these poor animals and demand Petland be shut down and dogs can only be adopted and not allowed to be sold from irresponsible breeders and neglectful people. Shame on you Petland for making millions off of sick pets. Your customer service is horrendous and makes me ashamed to kmow your even in business. I promise to deicate my life to ensuring Gabbis story gets heard and loving her for as long as we have her.

Still not a good idea to purchase the puppy, even though it's not her fault. You still supported the *** her parents are in.
