Pet Stores Ban Drunk Puppy Buying


If your idea of a fun night out involves getting wasted and going on a wild puppy-buying spree, steer clear of New York City’s West Village. Local pet stores, which are surrounded by bars, are now telling customers who stumble into the store drunk that they can’t even hold the puppies, let alone buy them. In recent years several people have purchased pets in an inebriated state, then returned them once they sobered up. “We have to tell them to come back the next day and most of the time they never come back,” said Citipups manager Leandro Jacoby.
