Hereditary Defects When I got Pixie, she had watery eyes and was very timid, she didn't bark and didn't want to eat for days. She had worms and I was told she tested positive for Giardia, but had no symptoms. I couldn't pay for the meds. because it took every penny I had to buy her. I kept searching for signs of Giardia...she only got better and stronger with my care. I feel the Vet. that was recommended by the pet shop was only trying to get more money out of me. She nervously barks frequently and has really bad 'separation anxiety'. I really don't blame her after all she must of gone through. She is trainable, but very nervous and fidgety.

How did you hear about shop Next to AT&T, my cell phone company. 
Please describe conditions It seemed clean enough, some had fices and one puppy was eating it. Once when I was in there a lady brought back her rabbit because it had lice, she did get a refund. It didn't appear as if they were ever let out of their cages, unless a potential buyer wanted to interact with them. My puppy was living there for three months, after seeing her in there for three weeks in a row, I finally decided to get her out of there. I asked the owner if she would come down on the price, since she was there so long and I couldn't really afford it and that I would give her a good home....she wouldn't budge on the price !
