Not sure if this is informative, but thought I would post. While I do not support Petland I am concerned about the pup and its wellbeing. I figure you just never know what someone might learn or overhear.

wow, do those hours not indicate an employee? We were near a Petland yesterday, and they had a person in dog costume on the highway advertising a puppy sale for just yesterday. Naturally we didn't go in.

"Needs constant medical attention"....I wonder if this was the only pet stolen. Who would break into a store only to steal one dog? Someone must have wanted it pretty badly. It looks like a Blue in the picture, not seal.

Sounds strange... like an employee, but this: "need constant medical attention". What kind of puppy do they have?
The less profit for Petland, the better as far as I think. But I am not advocating theft, either - gee with their prices,
I guess it would be grand larceny??

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

What is ironic is that that picture of the IG they have is what comes up when you google italian greyhound. Could be that they just do not have a picture, but don't most pet stores have pictures of their animals?

If they are like our local Petland, I doubt if they could even remember what color/sex it was without looking up the records. shakehead.gif

That does seem to be the case since the lost ad states both "he" and non-spayed female??????? Doesn't sound like they even know what's/ who's missing! No alarm?????? And he JUST installed a deadbolt??? Doesn't sound quite right to me!

I love to go into our Petland. I look at all the puppies which hurts my heart. But when any of the emplyees come up to me
I tell them I am check to see what will be in our shelter before the year is out and that NO I would never buy a dog from a
store as they come from puppy mills. They do not like me very much. I really just try to see if any IG's come in. So far they
do not have any for have they for about a year and a half.
