A couple of days ago, me and my sister were talking about getting another dog to be added in their pack. And coincidentally, I was also searching through this famous buy-and-sell website for nothing in particular. So since we were in the topic, I searched for available dogs being sold as online dog ads are conveniently found in this site. To cut to the chase, here are some ads I've read.
Most of them are in my country's language. I will be posting the translated version already.
"For Sale Shih-Tzu
Never been mated 100% Virgin
Perfect for Breeding"
"Puppy for Sharing Shih-Tzu Stud
In Heat, So He Needs A Bitch!"
"JRT Stud Service
I have 2 JRTs (Jack Russel Terriers) you can choose from.
They're awesome at mating since they already know what to do!"
"No Need for Shooter! My dog knows what to do!"
"Never Missed! Proven! Always Successful! Promise,"
"Looking for Crossbreed pups? I can provide you with any kind, just send me a message. Price is negotiable depending on the breed."
"Selling Shih- Tzu. The previous owner failed to save the dog's eyes from blindness , but she is healthy. If you need one for breeding purposes, it's definitely okay."
"Big Head, Heavy Bones, Sad Face" - description for a beagle
"Mini Pinscher Chihuahua Mix. Almost in heat. If the female is mated to a purebreed, the possible outcome is a PURE one!"
And the last one,
"Release Date is on DEC ______ , GREAT AS CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!"
It's just sad to know that majority of the reasons that breeders here choose to take care of purebred dogs is for monetary gain. Purebred dogs are like luxury items in the Philippines which is why they are highly sought after. It's a rare case for a person to pick up strays. And one of the reasons why dog adoption from pounds isn't popular is because of this (aside from the fact that some cities don't have pounds).
