At the point when the pet's proprietor Brooke Vowers went to the PetSmart at 19945 Katy Freeway on Thursday to get her dog, Leder purportedly moved toward her and said she had a video of the creature being manhandled by the groomer.
The video shows a PetSmart associate jerking the head of a Shih Tzu, pulling the dog's ear as Terah Leder, a customer at the store, horrified by the incident, grabbed her cell phone to record the mistreatment of the pup.
A groomer at a PetSmart in Katy has been fired after a video of her mishandling a small dog went viral, Feb.1, 2018. When she came back to pick up her dog, a lady came up to her and said she had a video of how the groomer treated the dog.More news: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to embark on Sweden two-day visit
"I was getting upset and I wanted to have proof, so I could take action and show somebody that this is happening", Leder told Fox 26 Houston. She had dropped Boo off hours earlier and had no idea what had happened since. Only later did Vowers watch the video.
"I was like, 'Are you kidding?' Just kinda like confused, you know", Vowers said. "That was just a tidbit of the video".
Vomer said watching the video of her two-year-old Shitzhu being mistreated makes her sick. "If this happened to my dog, it probably happened to other dogs, and I don't want it to happen to future dogs", said Vowers.More news: Harden leads Rockets over Spurs
Vomer said, she is thankful for the kindness of this stranger who spoke up. We've tried repeatedly and unsuccessfully to reach the groomer.
Within hours of the video being posted, PetSmart officials announced they had terminated the employee. The company also said that the groomer in question has been fired. A spokesperson said the treatment is "completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated". There is no criminal investigation at this time.More news: Disputed Nunes memo says Federal Bureau of Investigation abused surveillance power
