Petland agrees to pay Tipp City puppy’s medical bills after News Center 7 report

Petland puppy has "worst case" of hip condition vet has seen

A family says the puppy they bought from a Dayton pet store has one of the worst cases of hip dysplasia their vet has ever seen.

They are blaming the store and its breeders for selling them the injured dog, but the store says it’s not their fault.

Thor, a young German shepherd, loves on everyone who comes through the front door at the Miller home. At 9 months old, he already has serious, debilitating medical issues, and is in pain.

“It’s every day and he’s on pain medicine but they’re not doing much at all,” his owner, Courtney Miller said.

She and her father-in-law, Frank Miller, bought the pup in March from a Petland in Dayton. At the time, Thor was given a clean bill of health. But almost immediately, Courtney Miller said she noticed something was wrong with his hips.

“Pretty much everything is wrong with them. They area all out of socket. Walking up the steps he does a bunny hop. Outside he tries to walk around and his legs just hit each other,” Miller said. “So he’s just all in pain. He can barely sit, he cannot lay down.”

>>Life after death: How do I plan for my pets?

Miller’s veterinarian said Thor has the worst case of hip dysplasia he has ever seen. And he likely was born with it.

That’s when Miller and her father-in-law called Petland’s corporate office, which offered a partial reimbursement.

“Two thousand dollars for his expense, which we know it’s going to be more. Or we give you $4,000 towards a new dog. You know, that’s like giving up your kid,” Frank Miller said.

Tonight, JR Badger, director of Petland’s companty stores, sent an email to Miller that offers to pay for Thor’s medical bills. This came around 8 p.m., hours after Miller’s story ran on WHIO-TV.

It reads: “Good evening Courtney! I am sorry you are dealing with this. All you will need to do is take Thor to MedVet for the consultation and they will bill us directly ... Thank you and we will get Thor taken care of.”
