THREE puppies from the same pet shop fell ill and died from a canine virus after they were taken home by their new owners.
Both the owners complained to the Agri-food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).
Their beef: The pet shop did not vaccinate the dogs - an AVA regulation - before selling them and this led to the dogs' deaths.
Joy Doggy Pet Shop in Upper Thomson Road, which sold all three dogs, was fined $100 by the AVA.
