Do you guys ever come across classifieds that make you cringe, or shake your head, or maybe even laugh?

Post em here! :)

I found this one just now (copied and pasted):

"I am looking for the perfect little tea cup puppy. I have an addorable pink purse to carry her in. I have no children and have a love for animals. Please message me if you have one or know of some one who does."

A group was gathered around the bulletin board in my local grocery store...chuckling. It read:
THANK YOU to the lady in the yellow jacket who ran out into the traffic last week and saved my dog. I shall always appreciate her efforts. Now would she please return my dog? Phone---:

I have a female kitten 5 months old and she is a grey tabby and we want her to have kittens with another cat if you could give us your cat to mate with her or lend us your cat please send an email.

Yes, I looked it up... they are "neuticals"... apparently it helps the dog "maintain their self esteem" after neuteuring ...:wall:

I don't have any ads to share, but I hate when (besides the free cat/dog animal giveways) is the people who try and sell exotic animals, like parrots and reptiles/amphibians. To take care of an exotic animal takes someone who knows that species inside and out. Its frustating to see, that people don't have a care in the world. It all about the me factor, selfishness and greed.

I just came across a few ads on a site called "Used PEI", which is an online classifieds site for PEI.

Anyways, besides a surprising number of "male dog for stud" ads and a very "questionable" link to a website where atleast 20 breeds of dogs are being bred, there is an ad for good 'HOUSE PUPS' and 'Small House Puppies'.

I'm not exactly sure what a 'house puppy' is but from what I can gather it is a $300 mixed breed.

There is 2 ads for the same litter of pups, first ad says the mom is a ****zu and the father is a terrier and the second ad says the mom is a ****zu mix and the father is a pure ****zu.

Eep! Is there a local SPCA you could alert to the advertisement?

I've been looking at their website, I'm really sure what to make of it. It looks legit, but I suppose thats what they all do.

It's based out of Quebec, not sure of the laws and regulations up there. Maybe someone has heard of this place?

http://www.oranch.qc.ca

Maybe it's a good place, I don't know. Just seems to be an awful lot of dogs being bred there, and it also worries me when they refer to their parent dogs as "the reproducers".

Myka
January 31st, 2010, 12:33 PM
Ya, that's a weird place. From their website:

"We have a kennel permit, in accordance with the bylaws of the municipality and the Animal Protection Agency of the Estrie. We have been inspected by S.P.C.A Canadian and AMIMA Quebec. A visit here, will convince you that there is no horror story as we see on TV, at our Kennel."

I wonder what the SPCA has to say about them...?

Quebec is, unfortunately, a haven for puppy mills and I suspect the one with 20 different breeds is just one of many. Very sad.

I've e-mail the SPCA in Montreal (since the website is from Quebec) and the SPCA in Nova Scotia (since it's the closet to PEI).

Hope to hear a response.

There is NO WAY this is a legit breeder. NO WAY. A legitimate breeder would not breed more than two or three breeds. It's a puppy mill, pure and simple. I want to find them and :censored: the owners!!!

Here's one:


"Hi! me and my fiance are looking for a free puppy, we are new to the london area and both had dogs with our family's unfortanletly we had to move away so we would like to get our own puppy because we miss our familys dogs. We are both very loving and caring and can give the puppy all the love and care that is needed for them to be a wonderful and happy dog. We live in a medium apartment and daily walks and food will be definetly provided. We both love animals and can guerentee a great home for a puppy. If you think that we would be a great canidate for your puppy please reply to our add. We know the type of resposibilites we need to handle a puppy and can provide a loving home for the puppy to grow up in. We would purchase a puppy but we are tight on our funds as I said we just moved to London and cant afford to pay up front for a puppy at the moment but can guerentee a great home and all the daily care that is need as long as its free."

:confused: If you can't afford to pay for the puppy, how can afford to feed it, spay/neuter it, provide vet care, etc? :shrug:

"Pomeranium, 11 month old Male, Not Neutred.

He is a loving dog, but due to a conflict with our other dog we have to find him a new home. He loves people and gets along with our cat. He is house broken. He must go this weekend. He is mostly Black. Help us find him a new home. Call ##########. "


Hmm. Maybe if you neutered him for starters...? :confused: And what's with the weekend deadline? :eek:

From Kijiji

I have a black miniature poodle that is free to a good home. Her name is Dolly and she is 5 yrs old. She is not fixed. I got her when she was older as well. She is a very well tempered dog. She is great around kids. She is house trained. She is a very lovable dog. I got her for my kids to show me they could take care of her and they have neglected that chore. I am close to her but have a white minature poodle of my own. I am sad to have to part with her. But my kids have to learn.



Wanted: Looking for a mate FAST!!!!!!


Hello, my name is Prince I am a black lab with a little sheperd in me... you can only really see it in my floppy ears. I am just about 10 months, 92lbs, and very friendly, and I love kids :) I am sadly about to lose my man hood and am looking for that one special lady. Serious inquires only please.

From Kijiji:

"American Pit Bull Terrier

(This is a re-post because the pending buyer was not able to arrange the funds).

We have an intact male for sale. He is unregistered, so we suggest not using him for breeding. He is solid chocolate with a white chest. He is now eight months old, and has had basic obedience training, house training, and kennel training. He has been raised in a pack environment with all humans in the house hold portrayed as pack leader. He is quite submissive and has showed no aggressive actions towards our other dogs, or our children. We are choosing to find a new home for him because of his confirmation faults. He would make a great companion pet for any family. Please contact me for pictures, and to set up an appointment to view him. Also note that this is not a first come first served basis, we would like the best match possible between our boy and his new family.

Serious applicants only please."



Sooo....the dog is unregistered so they suggest you don't use him for breeding, but they don't want to keep him because of conformation faults which leads me to believe they were wanting to breed him...ok then kind of a double standard I think! At least they are looking at conformation...too bad they are overlooking registration papers!

Here is a Kijiji ad for Westies. They are on the reduced rack, apparently the due date on their left leg indicates they are about to expire...:wall:

Ready February 13th. 3 males left.
Reduced from $450 so price is firm.
They come with their first shots, checkup and deworming (vet papers and health certificate come with the puppy). These are not registered.
The West Highland white Terriers as a breed are non shedding and hypoallergenic. They average 9 11 inches, and 13 18 lbs. Westies are very hardy terriers, easy to train, and get along well with children. They are lively and self assured with other dogs, but not aggressive. They make wonderful pets and additions to the family.

here's a doozy of an ad :

15 year old pug seeking good home

this is probably the most difficult and awkward posting i have ever had to write. bailey is 15 1/2 and is now deaf. her back legs don't function well and luckily they do not cause her pain - however, she is unable to control her bowel movements. she poohs wherever (in bed, down the hall, outside....everywhere). she is toilet trained but due to her age, she does not know when she is poohing. her back legs slide on tile or wood floors, she does better on rugs. she can go down few steps (up to 6 or 7), but cannot climb up - she needs to be carried (she weights approx 22lbs). she has a healthy appetite and is still very spunky. she barks at almost all dogs bigger than her but she's harmless.
currently, her best friend is a senior lab mix who is 16 years old but due to his condition we need to put him down soon.
i would like to visit bailey and am offering to pay for her food and regular vet visits. i sadly cannot have her with us as we have a 9 month old who will be crawling soon.
i know i have very few selling features with bailey, but she truly is a joy and she is loved and gives love....oh yeah, she snores too.

It's his "confirmation faults" that are causing them to get rid of him. Their church will not confirm him. :D Kidding.

Mine is pretty tame in comparison but I get a bit of a kick out the ad for "black chocolate Lab puppies."

And the ones where I suspect the seller phoned the ad in and the person at the paper spells "mare for sale" as "mayor for sale", which we all know is not out of the realm of possibility. :(

Yours are all better than mine. :) Edited to say: No, I mean they are worse. Oh, you know what I mean.

Mother cat 1-2 years of age (calico) and kitten (black and white female) born on March 11 need a loving home. Mother cat was bread with my friend's cat (black and white). I need to find them a good home since I am asthmatic and can no longer keep them. Both are very affectionate. Litter box, toys, food, treats etc are included. Kitten is eating solid food and litter trained. Please contact me if interested...

Why would you breed your cat if you knew you were asthmatic?? And how do you not know how bred is spelled?
