Dog Dead Afternoon Suit for Pet Shop to the Stars

12/28/2007 9:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pets of Bel Air -- the trendy pet shop that was exposed for having purchased their dogs from puppy mills -- has been hit with a class action suit by one dissatisfied customer. Their celeb clients include Paris Hilton, Denise Richards, Demi Moore, Britney Spears and Robin Williams.
Read the lawsuit
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.

Remember - even dogs from puppy mills can be AKC certified!!! AKC doesn't mean anything - research the breeder and NEVER buy from a pet store!

If you love the dog what difference does it make if it has papers. This is just ridiculous to me. Are we so wrapped up in ourselves that we have to have papers to show the world we have a "purebred" dog. It's people like this that don't deserve an animal as it is obvious they want to impress the world rather than do a good deed and give a loving animal a home.

This is the best advice and can not be repeated enough!

Oh! … and to the Brit fans who are in withdrawal … remember tomorrow is another day for her to screw up again.
