In a lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, Wayne Kreger alleges he purchased a Chihuahua puppy from the store in August 2007. He claims he was told that dog was a "purebred American Kennel Club Chihuahua" and would be given papers proving it. He claims he never got the papers. The lawsuit goes on to say that the Kreger was told by an employee that the dog might "become dehydrated and show a lack of interest in food." Sure enough, within two days, that happened and the dog was diagnosed with Parvo virus and died 10 days later.
Kreger is suing the store for false advertising and fraud and is asking for unspecified damages.
A rep for the store tells TMZ they have no indication on record that there was anything wrong with the dog, nor were they ever notified that anything was wrong. If they had been notified, they would have done all they could to fix it.
