Dog Named Brandon Strangled, Best In Show Dog & Cat Grooming Sued | Homer Glen, IL Patch – Homer Glen, IL Patch

LOCKPORT, IL — A woman whose Pomeranian dog named Brandon died on Oct. 15, 2021, has retained a Joliet law firm to file a civil lawsuit against the Best In Show Dog & Cat Grooming on East 9th Street, accusing the Lockport business of negligence in her dog’s death.
The lawsuit was filed at Will County’s Courthouse on behalf of Brandon’s owner, Brendalisse Figueroa, by Joliet attorney Luke Antonsen of Hamilton & Antonsen on Executive Drive.
The Lockport business has not filed its response to the lawsuit yet. On Monday, Patch also left a voicemail seeking comment for this story with the Lockport pet grooming business.
According to the plaintiff, while Brandon was at the business, Best In Show “allowed and or permitted the dog grooming techniques and equipment of the aforesaid premises to be used in an unsafe and dangerous condition in that the plaintiff’s dog Brandon was strangled to death, although the defendant knew or should have known that the techniques and equipment used would and could cause deaths to pets lawfully being treated and present …”
The lawsuit also accuses Best In Show of failing to maintain adequate supervision of the dog grooming techniques and equipment used. As a result of Brandon’s death by strangulation, Figueroa has suffered great pain and mental anguish, her lawsuit said.
The lawsuit also named Lori Robinson in count 2 of the complaint, noting that she was and is still the owner of Best in Show.
The lawsuit notes that Figueroa was present at Robinson’s business when Brandon was being treated, and that Robinson had agreed to provide pet grooming.
The lawsuit seeks a monetary judgment in excess of $50,000 from Robinson, as well as Best In Show.
