Long Island pet store loses dog, family devastated

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM - A Long Island family has been left devastated after learning their trusted groomer lost their precious dog.  

Jose Echeverria and his wife took their pet Sparky, to the Purrfect Pets pet store in Cedarhurst, NY to be groomed. When they came back two days later to pick up the dog, they were told he went missing after the groomers took him somewhere else to get groomed.

The family says they were never told Sparky would be taken anywhere else to be groomed.

The owner of the pet store has admitted fault and says they are offering to replace the dog, but Echeverria says that is not good enough.

"I don't want another dog," says Echeverria. "This isn't like fast food where you ask for a burger without onions and they give you one with onions and you just return it and get another one."

Echeverria says he hopes they find his dog before he moves forward with a lawsuit.
