NYC pet store bans drunken puppy-buying
NEW YORK -- A New York City pet store that's surrounded by bars has banned drunken puppy-buying.
Workers at Le Petite Puppy in Greenwich Village say customers tend to stumble in after happy hour and purchase a dog without thinking. Drunken customers now are forbidden to even hold the puppies, because they can drop them.
Store owner Dana Rich tells WINS-AM that she instructs people who have clearly been drinking to come back the next day.
Employees say they stress how much work it is to own a dog. They say they would rather lose a sale than send a puppy into an unsafe home.
