  1. The real crime is charging 1700 for a dog. Don’t get me wrong this guys a douche but what moron would pay that much for a dog? Ahhhh, and people in the burbs are broke like everyone else. The store will claim this on their insurance

  2. 1700 Dollars for a puppy mill dog? Oh and most likely, that price is inflated for the owners to claim to insurance.

  3. Petland is known for getting their dog from puppy mills so I have no problem with this guy stealing this dog. He’ll probably give it a better life than it’s had so far. DON”T SHOP, ADOPT. Boycott Petland and all pet stores that sell animals.
