You know, its sad, but I think the majority of pet stores are like that. We got Harlie from a pet store, before we knew better, and as most of you know, we purchased her, she was advertised as a Boxer, and looked like it, but as she grew up, she of course doesnt look so Boxer anymore, she looks more like a Pit Bull (we still love her and would never hold it against her
) and when we bought her, she was being fed a very bad brand of senior dog food (!!!) and within a week she had a serious skin problem, where her skin would peel in layers, like how a person would when they got a sunburn! We too had Harlie in and out of the vets, but we were lucky, almost all of our bills were 50% off because our vet is a personal friend, and she gave me tons of shampoos, skin supplements, and oral supplements for free. Harlie is a great dog, and we love her to death, but she was a pretty expensive "mixed breed" I always tell myself I should march into that store with her, and ask them what kind of dog they think she is, and when they dont reply Boxer, to ask them for my money back (but keep the dog! lol) But even my vet says they would just say you didnt get her there, even if you brought a reciept, because they always do things like that and get away with it. I would like them to go out of business though.
