    OMG are these people mad? :cursing: Maybe she will be better off away from such callous fools?
    It takes a bitch months and months to recover from having a litter both emotionally and physically and they just want her gone after being mated again. The trauma of being re-homed is bad enough and then have another litter.
    Problem is in this Great Britain they aren't doing anything illegal. :crazy:
    Poor girl,

    They're selling her last litter now so sounds like they're offering a back to back mating for the new owners :(.

    I guess selling your poor dog straight after she's weaned a litter and an offer to breed her again for free so you'll get more money is a genuine reason for some people :(

    How sad.
    Problem is do responsible new owners look at this site/advert? Will she get a new responsible owner? Probably not and the cycle will go on. How many of her offspring will end up in Welfare or the Pound or end up being PTS. It doesn't bear thinking about does it? :(

    With offering the breeding I can only assume she would attract people looking to make money off her poor thing. She's on pets4homes so someone responsible might buy her. With the breed I would guess most would end up being euthanised in shelters :(

    I hope so. Maybe Pets4Homes should refuse to advertise in such circumstances?

    I certainly don't think it would be an unreasonable request.

    It would be good to see I've seen a few ads for "red-nosed" staffs on there as well :(. The ambull section is awful for them

    Term used to try and hide the fact they're advertising a pitbull but of course everyone knows that what they mean so they attract the right people. Course most of the red-nosed ones are DDB crosses but anyway

    I think irish staffs are an actual type but most advertised are "pitbulls" or people trying to say their dogs are

    Sorry, I know it's a sister site to this one so may get me banned, but pets4homes is not somewhere I would recommend anyone look for a pup. The breeders are mainly byb and puppy farmers and tbh, the people who buy from these sites are not much better.

    I wouldn't buy a dog from there I was just looking it is mostly BYBs and so many poodle mixes :eek:. There was one labradoodle ad that really impressed me though all health tests done and everything they were getting a waiting list together for a litter in December

    They won't! If only we didn't have free ads, I think they hold a lot of responsibility for many of these dogs being bred indiscriminately. If people had to pay to advertise maybe they'd think twice. Some of the ads they allow are disgraceful - this being one of them. More poor Staffies in rescue! :mad:

    I hate the sellers and I hate the free ad sites for allowing this kind of advertising!
