Georgia's Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of a Fulton County family who sued a dog kennel for alleged poor treatment of its pet.
In 2012, Robert and Elizabeth Monyak sued Barking Hound Village, claiming the kennel gave Lola, their dachshund mix, medication it had not been prescribed and then tried to cover it up.
The owners say the dog got sick and eventually died of kidney failure.
They sued for $67,000 – their expenses to try to cure the dog.
The kennel contended it owed only the "fair market value" of the mixed-breed dog.
