Sunsella, a company based in Las Vegas, Nevada, that offers home and kitchen products online, has announced that dog-walking and pet-sitting startup Wag has been considering the possibility of a sale to pet giant Petco and other potential buyers. Wag is majority owned by investment firm SoftBank, and the latter has been in talks with Petco over the last few weeks.

Petco and Wag have already agreed just a few months ago on a partnership deal. However, Wag, which was last valued at $650 million, had reportedly failed in its efforts to scale up and could be the latest company backed by SoftBank to be in trouble. If Petco finally buys Wag, this will allow Petco, a brick-and-mortar retailer, to gain some digital marketing capability and would allow it to build relationships with a younger generation of people who own dogs. It should be noted that it is currently facing e-commerce competition from Chewy, which was recently spun out from PetSmart, a Petco competitor.

On the other hand, a Petco purchase will allow Wag to be saved after taking $300 million from the SoftBank Vision Fund in 2018. Wag had recently suffered from heavy criticism due to a number of reasons, ranging from runaway dogs to lackluster financial performance. The company has also suffered several rounds of layoffs, affecting an unspecified number of employees.

The SoftBank Vision Fund is also suffering from a damaged reputation as it has been severely affected by the spectacular downfall of WeWork. SoftBank is reportedly trying to raise another Vision Fund that would amount to another $100 billion or more.

Meanwhile, the home and kitchen products company Sunsella offers various helpful products online. They have a number of products available online that can be convenient for use in the home or kitchen.
