    I posted a link last night to an advert for a 15 week old beagle on preloved and it was closed because it involved a preloved link and apparently you aren't allowed links to preloved adverts on pf-I was totally unaware of this so thought I would just let anyone else like me know who wasn't aware.
    Bit strange that when I did a search for preloved though it came up with other peoples posts including a preloved link:confused:

    Just to high light that again there are idiots that have bought a beautiful beagle for their daughter for xmas and she doesn't want it,and hoping that someone may be able to help here is the advert without a link

    Poor little pup, I hope he finds his forever home where he will be loved and treasured.

    It is heartbreaking to read this ad, how can these people even contemplate getting a pup for their daughter & then admit to giving it up 'because she doesn't bother with it'. He hasn't even been given a chance, they quite clearly didn't look into it properly before buying him. What were they thinking, how old is their daughter and why can't they care for it - obviously have no feelings :mad: Grrrrrrrrrr

    Yep!
    I have just one question! Do you believe in Santa Claus?

    the reason that I ask is that for an ADULT to even consider buying a dog for another person without their full approval they MUST either believe in Santa Claus be three sheets to the wind or BOTH

    Disgusting that a parent would act so foolishly, wouldn't like to meet that family..

    I once posted a link about a Preloved ad, the thread stayed but it was edited by a Mod removing the link, the seller clearly encouraged buying her for breeding and any link could act as advertisement, so I understand it being taken down.

    Although I did read your thread and I don't really understand it being edited or taken down, the reason he's being sold is obviously disgusting but its nothing more than a stupid owner and as far as I'm concerned the earlier somebody takes him the better.

    People are idiots and it will never change :mad: I hope that poor dog finds a good home where he is appreciated and cared for. Earlier today I saw an ad for free pups staff x lab near me. I've emailed my foster co ordinatitor in the hope that she can maybe convince the person to hand them to rescue when they are old enough so good homes can be found. Shes said to me before I if I see free dogs or dogs sold cheaply to tell her and will try get them to get a foster place and rehome them.
