GRANDVILLE, Mich. — Several dozen demonstrators protested the opening of the new Barking Boutique location in Grandville Sunday afternoon.
This is the third time the owner has tried to open the controversial business which sells designer dogs.
Last year, the Lakes Mall in Muskegon backed out of a deal just days before the store's grand opening and a few months later the business opened in the Woodland Mall for a couple days before being evicted.
Protesters say the owner gets his dog from puppy mills, but he claims they're from licensed breeders.
The owner says he is planning to host a tour of the facilities he gets the animals from.
