    I can understand reputable breeders, key word reputable here, trading healthy pups for showing or breeding purposes but probably not putting it out there on TV. Especially for breeding purposes to better the breed between exceptionally healthy EB's but to trade for other goods and on TV? No way! I have a male/female pair that are both fixed as neither are breeding material and I could never barter them away for anything.

    Not sure how this will work… but here is the video preview for the episode… https://www.facebook.com/video/embed...51847102484772

    The part with the pups, some guy says "this will be the cutest trade I've ever made". So I'm gonna go with - it happened.

    OH! … and if you post a "NEW" thread on their FB wall, it gets deleted. You can only respond to threads that they start. So add your rants, disgust and outrage to an existing thread and it won't be deleted…

    People are raising all kinda he** on their page, but I have a feeling they are gonna air it anyway. NOBODY has responded to the hundreds of protest messages... it makes me really sad that this is considered "ENTERTAINMENT"!!!

    Did anyone just watch it? I understand about the barter thing and doing it with pets shouldn't happen but they made it very clear to find a good home for it and you could tell that the guy loves animals and has had a hole in his heart since he lost his pug years ago and even teared up when giving him kisses. I'm sure the EB has been taken care of and wow that little guy was cute makes me want to get another EB pup

    I did watch that part. The home he cowboy was his name from there was a guy who worked on cars and they went walking up to the house where there were 6 at least big dogs kennels up outside and the "owner" comes out with a giant snake then he brings out the puppies he only got rid of cowboy for a engine hoist. I will say that the home cowboy went to was a big 105 acre ranch and the new owner had a pug previously but he seemed like he was going to take great care of cowboy. He is fully alcohol registered they say do all in all I am happy to report that I feel that cowboy is in great hands now I want to know about the other sibling.

    I think it's great that it turned out the pup went to a good home… BUT!… my problem is this - how many IDIOTS out there who watch this show will think this is a GREAT idea and will not be so careful about who and what they trade? There are already enough problems with people selling/trading babies on CraigsList, etc and this just gives them one more GREAT idea to make money without any responsibility or scruples. THAT is my problem - promoting the trading of animals for goods. Some might say it's no different than trading an animal for cash. I beg to differ. It's a heck of a lot easier to hand over something you don't want or need than it is to hand over cash. When you gotta hand over cash, you tend to think a little bit more of what you're getting for it than if you just got it for something you honestly don't care about, know what I mean?

    That exactly what I was wondering when I watched it too

    I can't believe I missed this! This makes me SO angry!!!! I am glad that the pups went to a good home but agree that is not the point here. No living thing should be "bartered"! Shame on A&E for airing this!!
