    Puppies in that first link look so sad.

    I would be tempted by the spanish water dog crosses but why cross 2 breeds that are relatively uncommon and presumably would be sought after if bred pure. Seems a bit pointless unless they have chosen two dreadful examples of both breeds.

    They don't look healthy or well cared for, poor little mites.

    That first lot does give you an idea why people want to 'rescue' sad looking pups, feel like giving them all a cuddle myself. Whoever wrote the ad has obviously never heard of punctuation either.

    I wouldn't even consider Pets4Homes a reputable site let alone buy a dog from them.
    It seems as though anyone can flog a dog from there regardless of background.

    I'm tired of seeing, or being referred to, the C/Os people always seem to be getting rid of via this site. Who would have ever thought there were so many experienced C/O handlers in the UK.

    Moreover, how many of these dogs are eventually destroyed because they're being sold to folks who really had no idea.:(

    Totally agree Zaros, I don't think these sort of sites should be allowed. IMO no animal should be allowed to be sold via the internet. I very rarely look on there, shan't be looking again.

    Yes, there are not a of wheatons about, nor water dogs, not sure about the others. So why the need to do that.

    Totally agree, poor little souls, I can't stop thinking about them.

    Quite honestly, they look exactly like my little Daisy did when I got her from Battersea about 20 years ago. Think I paid £15 for her. Dear little dog too!

    I get the impression (first link) they are not native English speakers ... ''For wonderful little puppie'', ''unready for their new homes'' and ''this Puppies'' rather sounds as tho' someone dictated it to them over the phone? Also (link 1 again), where are the pictures of the chocolate pups? Am I missing something?

    There's a puppy in the second link that looks to have a docked tail or are the tails shorter in either breed when young
