Re: Wonder why there are so many homeless GSD in GA?

I know!!!! I was in our local Walmart parking lot and saw a pickup with lab type puppies.............. I didnt go over there, maybe I should have, but it would only have been to start trouble since I couldnt have trusted myself to be civil. I had talked myself into going over when I came out to find out just how bad these pups had it, would have taken in the entire litter just to get them a good home. they were gone by then, but it always breaks my heart to see puppies sold like this, I have no doubt that most of those puppies will be in a shelter before too long.

Hate to admit, I went the BYB route, but at least I did go to the guys house. The guy that wrote that ad definately didn't profit from all the money I donated to the Ga general education fund! hehe, if ya know what I mean!

Re: Wonder why there are so many homeless GSD in GA?

Im new to the whole "selling puppies out of a truck in a walmart parking lot" why would those puppies end up in a shelter?

Because teenagers buy them thinking their parents will just accept the new puppy?

Re: Wonder why there are so many homeless GSD in GA?

That happens a lot here in North Carolina. That's where my mom and her boyfriend got their dog Little Bit from (a wal-mart parking lot) . I've seen it at least five times, and that's not counting the flea market a mile from my house where people set up and sell puppies at. I have no clue why ANYONE would be able to sell their puppies to random people in a parking lot. I would lose my mind with worry. It's very sad.
