How did you hear about shop Walked by in mall 
Please describe conditions Chloe was in a small glass cube with another pup. There was nothing in there but shredded newspaper and a hamster like water bottle. The vet's assistant told me that the vet warned Barkworks that they needed to keep the pups seperated but they didnt follow his advice. When I found out that Chloe was sick I called the store and spoke to Lindsay. She did not really seem to care. She stated that most of the dogs had kennel cough and parasites. She said that she brought her own dog into the store several times and he/she did not get sick. In the past I have seen animals sitting in there own feces at Barkworks in Thousand Oaks. I had to alert staff.
