In January 201
8, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention measures examined an outbreak of Campylobacter in several states. CDC linked 99 percent of cases to puppy stores, and a majority of victims reported that they had had contact with puppies from Petland stores.
There were 113 cases investigated over 17 states, with 23 people in hospitals, officials said. Abdominal pain, fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are symptoms of Campylobacter.
Rose puppy came from a commercial kennel but could have been infected at various points along the supply chain, according to Puppy Mill Awareness.
In February, 17 people filed a lawsuit against Petland in Novi, and another nine families filed a second trial against the store in April after purchasing puppies from the store.
The puppies had a number of problems, including genetic defects, infections and some infectious diseases, according to Puppy Mill Awareness.
Rose’s trial was filed at the Oakland County Circuit Court.
“Cities should promote human business models and encourage families to adopt from their local shelter or Michigan Certified Foster-based Animal Rescue Organization – many of which specialize in specific breeds,” said Puppy Mill Awareness of South-South Michigan founder Pam Sordyl.
