I hope you will all agree that this is terrible. I could be wrong, but I don't think they will be screening for dog lovers, but rather looking for any buyers who can help them make a buck. I wrote to Century 21 and asked them to take down this listing and use their influence to help these poor pups find homes to live out the rest of their lives.


RE:puppy Mill for sale! Excellent business opportunity!

Tisk tisk... How sad but so glad they have to go out of business and sell!

All the members on here should donate 100 bucks for the human society to buy and help all those poor animals. What they could do with all that space! Doubt that would ever happen but it is a nice dream.

You would wish someone like Best Friends would purchase the "working kennel" and create a wonderful safe haven for the "breeding stock" and other poor unwanted animals in the district.

Now why would a real estate agent even list this property!?!? WITH THE DOGS?

I seriously would like to ask everyone on this board to ban business with Century 21 until this listing is removed. I e-mailed the agent who is handling this listing, and here is what I told him:

"It looks to me like you are listing a puppy mill for sale!?! How on earth can you list a property that includes "70 breeding dogs?" I belong to several dog forums (which is actually how I found out about this listing) and we are asking all members (thousands if you add all the forums I belong to) to ban business with Century 21 until this despicable listing is removed from the Century 21 site. Listing the property is one thing, but lising dozens of breeding dogs means you are listing a "ready made puppy mill" in my opinion.

I'm sure you are a nice guy, but in this case, ethics should mean more than commission. Please think about this and do the right thing. Thank you."

Not so sure about the "nice guy" part, but maybe he'll listen to reason...

If everyone who sees this would just take a moment to e-mail this guy, I bet he'd get enough e-mail to actually make him remove the listing...maybe. At least we would have tried to make an impression...

Wow. That's just unbelievable.
Can you imagine including an animal in a property sale?
Never seen that before- the animals' owner must be very attached to them.

Hope they never own another animal again.

Holy crap! Did you see the picture tagged " behind pet hotel"? I am sure you can see dogs in those little pens up off the ground, that is a pure puppy mill setup! I am definitely going to email this realtor as well, he should be ashamed of himself. I think our approx 14000 members, not sure how many are 'active" should indeed email and send this listing to everyone they know to do the same!!!

From the website:

There is no reason to punish other offices and their staff by not doing business with them. They have no control over what other offices sell.

I received this info through another forum and e-mailed the realter info on stopping puppy mills. Hopefully they will drop the listing.

I looked up the city website and it's an EXTREMELY small backwoods town it looks like. I doubt they are even going to care.


I'll admit it's worth a try to e-mail them though.

Me too, and I was able to see it before. Perhaps we DID make a difference!

I wonder if they list properties with meth lab or child porn business included. Maybe they need to know that some people view it that way.

And the listing is sponsored (at least when I checked it) by Cesar Gourmet Filets and Sauce dog food. Maybe another target for complaints.
