It always seemed that Fremont’s only dog store drew more protesters than patrons. Now, not surprisingly, it is no more.
A protest leader sent out an email this weekend announcing that the store, which opened last summer, has closed. Protesters had rallied outside many weekends outside the store, which they said obtained many of its puppies from breeding mills where dogs are horribly mistreated. The store’s co-owner Joey Kakar insisted that wasn’t the case.
The store, located on Mowry between Blacow and Farwell, was best known for a daring late night heist last December, in which 17 puppies were stolen. The next day, a store official was severely injured after falling through a skylight on the store’s roof while trying to show police how he thought the burglars entered the store.
