    Some women is trying to sell her staffy x lab puppy on a pets for sale Facebook page. She then states that it has no papers? Well durr it's a cross!

    Then another is trying to sell her "pedigree" yorkie puppy, then says dad is kc reg and mum isn't.

    I may be stupid, but how can u tell if it's defo ped without seeing kc reg papers from mum and dad and pup?

    We have a pedigree Beagle who is not KC Reg. (She has a 5 Gen Pedigree Cert and have met mum and Dad and seen ALL paperwork on them - they are KC Reg)
    It just didn't seem important to KC reg her to us, as we got her as a family dog, not to show her or breed from her!

    I have to add that we would NOT be selling her at any time either and especially not on FB!! (We have a contract that if ever we couldn't look after her anymore she goes back to them!) I agree FB is not the place to sell or more importantly BUY a dog from!

    I saw a gorgeous staff x rottie for sale on one of those pages, for £40 :(

    And also an owl that wasn't in a good state, but luckily someone pointed out it didn't look well and I think it ended up at a sanctuary :/

    It is worth considering that times change and the internet has passed the tipping point where it is intermeshed with many people's day to day lives. If you are reading these words then it is true for you. Ten years ago did you have a home computer? Twenty years ago?

    Facebook has become for many the way that they interact on-line with other people so although personally it is not for me I see very little "wrong" with using it as a means to communicate and advertise things for sale.

    You would think of little wrong with a postcard advertising a dog for sale on a notice board on the wall of a vets where dog-interested people would see it, why not on-line in a forum where some dog-interested people would see it or on a site where many more people might see it, some of whom will know directly or have a connection through mutual friends.

    This, in some ways seems better to me, is less anonymous than a lone postcard where there is no cross-referencing or possibility to respond with feed back.

    On Facebook you can comment about the sale - but would you do so on a postcard on a vet's wall ?

    Times have changed - accept it !

    Yes but the way they advertise it is like they just want rid, not like it is an animal at all. Yes sell it online but at least give it justice in your ad.

    Sorry I'm not a dog expert so I was asking as I didn't know and was interested to learn.

    I think them doing it via fb allows people to be more impulsive. I've seen the same dog sold on one several times by different people.
    People are selling all sorts of peds crosses, adults and puppies for low prices, offering to deliver them to whoevers the same day for a fiver petrol.

    Quite sad really.
