I just found this on leuleu ... don't get me started on the stupidity of people although maybe this ad is from someone trying to help ... who knows.

My French is a little rusty. Can someone tell me what it says?

Oh, come on! :mad: (not at you, Trinitie - at the person who took out this rediculous ad!)

Loosely translated:
(presuming they mean fox terrier) cross, male and female, 6 months old, not spayed/neutered, 150$/2, lanaudiere region, hurry or else they'll go to the SPCA tomorrow, or will exchange for a hypoallergenic dog.

LOL - it's ok if it was meant at me. I can take it! :sad:

At any rate, that doesn't sound like a "I want to help" type of post. It sounds like an ulimatum type of post. "help me or I'll harm the dog".

I guess the person who placed the ad does not understand there is no such entity as a hypoallergenic dog. Gawd! That qualifies as abuse in my book - give me $150 or I'll go to the SPCA. (I mean, unless she finds someone as stupid as her, she won't be exchanging this animal who is unfortunate to have fallen into her grasp!)

Loosely translated, the email address is "little ones refuge" at This is why I think that whoever placed the ad is trying to act as a mediator or helper to the dumb individual who wants to get rid of his dogs or exchange them. I doubt the dumb individual would be creative enough himself to register a hotmail address like "little ones refuge" when he obviously treats animals no better than trash.

Sorry, I didn't realize the e-mail belonged with the ad - I thought it was who to call if we could help these poor dogs.

Well, on the bright side, if they end up at the "right" SPCA, at least they'll be speutered before being adopted out, and the idiot who's giving them up won't profit from it! (Happy thoughts, people! :D )

Why someone would put up an intact male AND female for adoption is just beyond me...150$ is a great deal for a byb or puppymiller... :sad:
