    Default Bully Payments.......

    I was looking at Craigs list, and seen an ad for 9 EBD puppies for sale, for a small rehoming fee of $1,800.00 each but then stated that puppies and adults in our area were going for as much as $3,000.00 each (Thinking thats straight out of the NADA Blue Book for Pets) so consider their puppies a bargain. The part that surprised me was this breeder is offering a payment plan/financing available !!....( No mention of Finance charges) Man Oh Man, if this doesn't speak volumes about the wrong Parents..... Then, the even better part that gets me more than financing, is this, Hypothetically, if a person bought the puppy on a payment plan, and you know the first thing needed to be done with a new puppy, is a health screen by your vet, But is the Breeder + Consumers giving any thought to the problematic illnesses associated with the EBD?? I mean there's no health guarantee, stated in the ad, so if a problem were found..... Not that a Backyard breeder puppy would ever have any health problems.... How in the world would a consumer keep up with the Bully Payments and Vet Fees both ???? Medication ??? Allergies ??? I'm thinking to myself, If I'm having to finance my Pet, Then a premium grade of Pet Food is likely to bounce me into chapter 7 Bankruptcy Court..... WHAT ARE PEOPLE THINKING ????? Not about the Quality of this breed of Animal Evidently, And surely not about improving the health and standards of these Fantastic companions..... This ad was all about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Wish there was a way to STOP THEM !!!!!

    And unfortunately it is situations like this that then we see the emancipated, left outside their entire life, neglected and often abused babies that end up abandoned somewhere or in the rescue system. Some of them are lucky in the end. Some not so much

    @Goldenrod. That is quite interesting. Although the majority of the folks offering financing/payment plans for pets, I have seen some reputable breeders who offer this as well. Not so much financing with interest, but offering to break up your bully's cost before you purchase your pet. Part of me says if you can't afford it, then why get such an expensive dog. But then the other part of me says, our economy is sort of set up this way and a lot of people are good pet owners even though they may have to stretch out payments.

    I totally agree with you. Some people only care about the money, and the fact that their selling them on Craig's list, or on Kiji type posts speaks volumes as well. I've even seen people wanting to trade items such as tires for their cars, or other items in exchange for a EB. who trades a pet for objects? I wish there was a way to stop them too, or at least some kind of pet licensing or courses you had to take before acquiring an animal, plus more accountability and consequences to neglect and abuse of an animal.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Craigslist is the worst. One time I saw someone asking for RIMS FOR THEIR CAR and in return they would give them an English Bulldog puppy!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!? People are so infuriating sometimes!
