    Sounds like emotional blackmail in order to get £100, couldn't the vets get it signed over instead of PTS if someone was willing to rehome it. I know rescues are full of staffys but i'd imagine a pup stands a better chance of finding a new home.

    We'll pay the £100 if anyone can take him but can afford it? We'll pick him up too but we can't keep him, i don't think hudson would take to a staff male x

    where in north east do you mean? north east london?!

    if its in north london maybe i can get someone to pay it and foster him for a while until he gets a new home. but cant have him with me at home because of my bully pup. however can ask a friend who has dogs to do it.

    Aww why did i think he was lol! I just done it again lmao! If it's a girlie we could have her for a while with the big brown one - he's had the chop - i'd just be worried about bringing a girl into a house with two unneutered males. x

    This is the third time heard something similar to this today! if someone doesn't take the dog NOW (or worse BUY it now its going to be PTS) its emotional blackmail as surely to sign the dog over costs nothing yet even if the vet did PTS it would end up costing them anyway ?

    Still its hard isn't it cos on the other hand some people would go thru with it.

    Have you tried to get hold of some rescue shelters? Some would pay to get the pup of death row.

    But i highly doubt a vet would put down such a young pup. :frown:

    dirty scummy bustards.

    i cant help the poor pup but i would gladly put the tw@ts to sleep.

    how dare they even try to get money for it andblackmail ppl.

    prob want it to fund their scumbag habit of drugs or drink. anyone with even a miligram of compassion would give it away to a good home rather than murder it.

    blood boiling now!!!!! wanna hurt them bad!!!!:mad:
