A pet store owner in Georgia who had been trying to find a new puppy for her two-year-old dog has been shocked to discover she can’t find a good deal for her new purchase.
According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, a woman purchased a puppy for $600, which would have been more than double the asking price at PetSmart.
When she checked the website for her puppy, she found a sale on the dog care section for a new set of dog collars for $250.
When the woman asked PetSmart if it was worth the money, a sales rep replied, “This is not a good idea.”
In an effort to find an alternative, the woman decided to try online pet stores.
She went to www.petsmart.com and found the same dog collar deal for a second puppy.
But the dog collage was not the deal she was looking for, and the price tag was over $400, which is too much to pass up.
The woman said she will now take her puppy to another pet store and call PetSmart to get her refund.
“I’m going to go to PetSmart and call them,” she told KATV.
“I’m just going to tell them that I don’t have the money.”
PetSmart responded to the woman’s story, saying the collars are only available for dogs up to 12 weeks old.
“We are constantly adding to our range of puppy collars to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” the company said.
“We continue to expand our dog and puppy collar inventory, which includes dogs that are up to nine weeks old, but we don’t offer new collars at this time.”
Petsmart did not respond to The Associated Press’ request for comment.
