The 10-week-old English bulldog cost Noelle Todd $2,550 in a deal that was said to include two essentials.
The wrinkly faced, roly-poly dog, later named Luigi, had been "castrated," as a certificate delicately put it. Moreover, he had "no known illness or disease," said the bill of sale.
Within days, Todd would learn that Luigi's male parts — fully intact, as it were — were the least of the problem. A very sick dog was.
