Another shocking add. And a bit of a rant.

    Before I even post the link I would like to say IT'S NOT MY ADD. I repeat. IT'S NOT MY ADD.

    pups for sale at Pets FREE Classifieds

    Now, I know it's a few weeks old, but when I first spotted it I reported the add, and reported the seller to the RSPCA. I kept in contact with the seller hoping she'd say she'd been advised by the RSPCA to not sell till they were 8 weeks. No such luck, but she did continue to email me asking if I wanted a pup ASAP. Despite me contacting the RSPCA several times to tell them this and them saying they had been around and she insisted she wasn't selling, just taking deposits and they were happy the situation had been resolved.
    Now the pups are almost 6 weeks, and she's once again advertising.

    4 girls looking for a loving home. Classified Ad - Liverpool Dogs and Puppies Pets and Animals | InetGiant Liverpool, North West Free Advertising Website

    4 left, so she's clearly sold some before 6 weeks and the RSPCA have done nothing at all to prevent it, despite myself (and several others) reporting her continued attempts to sell them.

    I have, in the past contacted the RSPCA 4 times, 4 times they've done nothing. In my mind, they're absolutely useless.

    Back yard breeders like this make me absolutely sick. They should be stopped. But if the RSPCA wont step in, who can?

    The RSPCA doesn't seem to work too well when there are no tv cameras

    I will add another bit to the "puppy buyers responsibilities" that the recommended age for collecting pups is 8 weeks.

    Unfortunately, if the authorities refuse to act, the power remains with the PUPPY BUYERS to vote with their feet - but they won't :(

    same here :nonod:

    terrible...but goes on all the time sadly.

    Lyceum did you send on the emails from the breeder so they could see the dates and that she was clearly not just asking you if you wanted to put a deposit down but to take them?

    TBH i do not rate the RSPCA at all and am not really suprised that they didnt do anything!

    "have 5 black and white staff pups left out of a litter of 7. there are 2 boys and 3 girls. due to them being so young the only catch is that you would have to bottlefeed them every 3 hours for about 4 weeks."


    WTH?!!!! :mad:

    Ah yes, but if she gave them to a fosterer she wouldn't get any cash for them would she. Which to people like this is the whole point. What's the bet if someone asked when they were last wormed and vet checked she'd say they hadn't been, since absolute minimum spend means maximum profit.

    And if she said they had been vet checked and wormed I'd not believe a word, the kind of idiot who sells three week old puppies isn't the kind of person who'd spend the cash on regular vet checks and wormers.

    I didn't no, first time I contacted them they said they didn't need the emails as they were sending an office around. Every contact I've made with them since they've said they don't have an email address I can forward them too, and they are happy the situation is resolved.

    Bet they'd have an email address were I asking to donate cash.

    Does anyone want to drop the seller an email. Ask her when they were last wormed, vet checked etc. See if she has the results of health tests on the parents. We all know what the answers will be, but she needs to be alerted to what she should have been doing with these poor pups.

    Absolutely disgusting

    'they have only just opened their eyes and are adorable.' :mad:

    This is terrible. The RSPCA are useless. Stupid questions, but I guess youve sent them the links for the adverts? and her email address and telephone number?

    What about contacting the RSPCA head office, give them everything and tell them your local RSPCA are not doing anything. I have spoken to the HO recently and we very helpful

    I have sent the breeder an email - stating my views!

    I dont care if she reports me for abusive messages, at least it might make her thinks twice.

    They are probably pits and she is trying to sell them before they show the markings of one.
