    I have just read on another forum (non pet related) the below post in bold:

    i need a little advice , i have been offered a Boxer dog ( girl ) 2 years old its got 5 generations of pedigree in it. she had 9 pups 11 weeks ago but 1 died they all sold for £450 each i have been offered this for free with full papers i was wondering if she could be sold and what i would get for her

    My reply:
    :mad:
    So Rather than having the pets interest at heart you're just after making a few quid on an unwanted dog, who has just had a litter...:rolleyes:

    I bet the current owners of the poor dog only had the litter to earn a few quid too...
    Not very ethical IMHO...:rolleyes:

    Unfortunately there are those in the human race that tend to see £ signs before they see anything esle.

    I really do hope against hope that the poor girl finds a good home!

    I find things like this astounding, I must have lead a very sheltered life.
    I really didn't realize that there were so many people out there that did this type of thing :mad:

    unfortunately I think we'll see a lot more of this in the current economic situation- making money in this way you wouldn't have to declare it to the tax man or benefits office... :(

    God that is awful :cursing:

    Perhaps the recession is driving people to desperate behaviours but i think that would be an easy excuse, lack of morals in the human race would make that seem ok :mad:

    I suppose we should be thankful they he/she didn't think about turning the poor girl into a puppy machine at £450 a pup
