At closing time on Sunday evening, Pittsford, NY Petco store employees found a French Bulldog abandoned and left for dead in the pet supercenter’s customer restroom.
The tiny, malnourished dog, who appears to be between 4 and 6 years old, was left inside a bag, sitting in his own vomit and urine, and abandoned on the floor of the store’s bathroom. It appears that the poor dog was neglected for many months, possibly even years.
Employees immediately contacted local rescue organization Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets (GRASP). Intake Coordinator Karla Barkley came to pick the dog up. She named the sick, neglected dog Pierre, and is nursing him back to health.

No one knows what Pierre’s story is. Barkely says Petco did not have video surveillance to show who brought Pierre into the store. Also, the day he was abandoned, the store was extremely busy because there was an adoption event going on.
Barkley is angry that someone would abandon their dog in such a heartless way. She told reporters, “That person did not use the resources that were available to them as far as trying to take him to a shelter or finding a home for him.”
Despite everything he’s been through, Pierre is friendly and loving. He is finally getting the care he needs and will eventually find a loving forever home.
