Diseases and Illnesses I purchased a Male English Bulldog 10 week old puppy at " Pups and Pets" Santee store from owners Sharon Fransco and Husband. Puppy was Total of 00 plus food and cage / supplies. Only hours after I brought the dog home , it was bleeding all over the place and dying on my floor. I rushed it to the er and spent as much as I could afford to keep it alive but the dog had a advanced stage of Parvo. The store refunded me and took the dog back . However They knowingly sold me a sick dog. They had the dog on Flagyl which is a medication to stop diarrhea they also kept taking the dog to the bathroom before I left the store. So they had to of scene the blood. It's illegal to knowingly sell a sick dog and that's my complaint also my house is infected with Parvo now and I have to pay to clean all my carpets and it's all very emotional, plus I am dog-less now. Told the store they can get the dog healthy and give it back to me to make me happy and that I would not press charges on the cleaning of my home but they were very rude and did not make any arrangements to do anything for me and told me that I was not allowed to contact or call them as well as the dogs papers were supposably coming via Mail not time of sale ??? 
When illness begin end Dog showed illnesses signs at time i was playing with him but owner told me that the dog was lethargic because he just had a bath and that his breed was naturally lethargic. Owner also said oh dog may throw up a bit but that's normal from being car sick going home.
