    I just cant look at them any more. It's how I gained my two through adds which were no better than that, it's so sad. I am just so soft I end up emailing them, thinking even if I cant taken them I can help them get into a rescue but well look at me! So I am now banned from Gumtree/ Preloved/ Free Adds / Sun CLassifieds!

    I have come to realise no human can help every dog and I have two precious one who I have helped and I couldnt physically have another one!

    In fact here is my Boy's Makita's add, it's still up there and like the one you found describes him as a her :mad::

    I got my dog from Gumtree. Have been very lucky with her. The idiots that had her bred her at 13 months, made some money and sold her on. She's almost 10 kilo's underweight and vaccination card ect has been "lost". Full vet check, restart on the jabs, flee treatment and wormed, all sorted now and gorgeous.
    I saw some dreadful ads on my search, including a couple that were happy to reduce prices and deliver puppies. Those I said no to but it makes you think.

    Here's my baby. http://www.petforums.co.uk/gallery/showimage.php?i=11828&catid=member&imageuser=29390

    Thats terrible. The sad thing is I was never looking, especially for Makita, but after I saw him I couldnt not send that email asking why they were rehoming and had they been in cntact with any shelters.

    Millie had to be restrated on vacines whereas Makita was actually up for date. Makita had fleas but we took it as an opportunity to treat them both just in case. It's nice to know someone else is also tempted to read these depressing adverts.

    I cant believe your poor girl was bred from when she was still more or less a puppy :(
