While browsing my local free web advertising, I came across probably a dozen or more puppies for sale under the age of 1. Simply because the owner has had enough and needs to give them up . Ummm I have three human children and three fur babies there are alot of days I would like to give up but hey I signed up for this so Im in for the long haul and I dont regret a moment... I simply can not understand how others have the ability to do this ...
BTW I was browsing the site JUST IN CASE I came across one of my pups that I sold! Thankfully as far as I know they are all in their original homes and being loved and cared for!
I can't imagine giving one up either. Our home is a magnet for stray dogs and we end up keeping more than we find homes for. Lol. You have to look at it this way - at least these people are trying to find another home for their pet and they aren't just leaving it in a crate 24 hours a day for the next 15 years because they changed their minds. Or beating it or throwing it outside and forgetting about it. At least they are trying to find their dog a home instead of abusing it or ignoring it.
Unfortunately, as long as Pet stores, Puppy Mills, And BYB's are around, these ads will not go away. I see them constantly in my area as well, they are everywhere. The best thing we can do as responsible pet owners, is to educate as many people as possible.
Animals, what animals? My children just have alot of hair!
Or you could look at a different way. More lower class, sketchy breeders are having to downsize or get out of breeding. That to me is a good thing. I am looking for the right home for some nice older puppies because I have had to take in 5 adult dogs from another established breeder of 30 years that lost her home. Things happen.
My breeding program isn't going anywhere, but if the people who do less in their breeding program go away, it isn't always a bad thing.

Yes while there are some reasons I guess the one that bothered me both was this one, I dont think this person should even be allowed to own a dog!

I agree that's awful, but if you think that's bad you should see how the dogs down here get treated. My husband is in the military and stationed in el paso tx. The majority of military families shouldn't be allowed to own pets they dispose of them like they're disposing of their kids diapers. They tie their dogs out all day regardless of how hot or whether its raining or whatever. Both of our next door neighbors have dogs without shots and by now they should all have their rabies. Their dogs constantly dig out oaf the fenced in backyard they're kept in and they have the nerve to get mad at the dog for it. AND to top it off when they pcs (move) they put the dog on Craigslist or take it to the pound because they say they can't take it with. They look at their pets as temporary instead of lifelong commitments. Oh and my personal two favorite excuses...I'm pregnant so I can't take care of the dog...or my husband deployed so now the dog has to go. I have an eleven month old, am pregnant again and have four dogs, we are considering taking in another that our neighbor is trying to "throw away". When we got our dogs I knew it was a possibility my husband could deploy...I'd never get rid of them, they're family.
It breaks my heart...I'm constantly looking on Craigslist down here to see if there is even one dog I can rescue from going back to the pound. I don't understand how people can treat an animal who has never done anything but love them the way these people treat their pets.
If your dog doesn't like someone you probably shouldn't either!
Apart from the horrendous butchering of the English language, he doesn't sound as bad as some ads I have seen. I mean he has a winter coat and sweater for his dog. How many people who really don't care for their animals buy them clothing? He never did say why they wanted to find him a new home. Poor doxie. I'd take him but I don't live anywhere near "Texis".
