I purchased what was supposed to be a purebred, private bred dachshund, male on 8/25/09. He was a black and tan smooth and his condition was questionable, but I had to have him. They charged me over $1,800.00 for him, with a peace of mind warranty. Reasons for this warranty was if anything should go wrong, the dog should be returned by a certain time and a full refund will be given. We took the pup to the vet the next day to find out he was sick. They tried everything to cure the dog of the parasites that we found out he was born with. He could not be cured. I contacted the Pet Company, sent all documents and vet papers and never heard from them again. I couldn't give the dog up, but I wasn't about to be taken for that amount of money. I tried calling many times and was given the same answers, "someone will contact you regarding this matter," then hung up. No one called. I was being forced to either take the pup back and make a scene at the store, or keep him and deal with his disability. I chose keeping. I adored him, in fact he became my best friend, but then things went wrong. He started to suffer night terrors and would wake growling and snarling. He had always had his shots on time and was socialized with dog parks. He had to other dachshunds to keep him company as well as a litter for him to be called Uncle. Our Max was wonderful, until he started to bite, snarl and growl at everyone. He began to attack the other animals nearly killing some. We were all fearing him and with his constant barking and attacking, we tried all different methods of training, feeding and medical care. Nothing worked. On February 23, 2012 Midnight to the Maximus aka Max was put down. My heart is broken, This dog had always been sick, but the parasites had invaded his brain causing such terrors, he couldn't determine the difference between friend or foe. He hallucinated most of the time and woke in ways that would scare a 500 pound gorilla..DO NOT PURCHASE ANY ANIMAL FROM THIS STORE.YOU WILL SUFFER GREAT LOSS OF THE HEART AND FINANCE.

I walked into the Pet Company and saw a Yoranian(yorkie/pomerianian mix) and fell in love. about a week later we decieded to get her. Her name is pepsi and she is turning one. I never met such a healthy dog. She had no problems. No health issues. She did have a little cough but it was her trecha forming. and i was. She coughed for about 2-3 weeks but then it stopped. She is the most happiest dog i ever met. Now i dont recomend the puppies at The garden state plaza because the cages were filthy and my friend purchased on that had pink eye and many infections and she payed double for the medical bill then she payed for the actual dog because she didnt want to put it through more torture if she brought it back. It is a very happy dog but it was terrible. Also i purchased a hamster from there and i had it for a week and the frist night it was so happy and awake then a week tlater it died. they gave me hamster that was to younge to be sold. I was gooing to go visit the pet store recenlty when i saw it was out of buisness. Then i went the the ont in paramus park and that was closed as in out of buisness but they might just be renivating because all the signs and stuff was in the window. I highly recommend this petsore in Paramus park but not in many other stores.

The Pet Company, Paramus Park...
Purchased a pooshi..she is very cute.. the employees were very nice and easy to deal with as well as the manager. They were helpful as well. They need a new copier and more professional paperwork with more details on where the dogs come from. Its not the employees fault if these dogs are sick..its PETCO who owns this company who gets them from Puppy Mills as I found out while investigating my puppy. Unfortunately my dog was deemed unfit and I blame the breeder and broker who sold this dog to the Pet company. I have the heartbreaking decision on returning this puppy. I just dont want a crazy & sick dog on my hands. The store was very understanding about my return. I already invested in this dog but the long term problems can be financially bad.
Go on line and check out breeders and consider buying direct at a 1/4 of the cost. These puppies are overpriced and they love impulse buyers like me. I really learned my lesson.
