Most of the animal rescue charities say that you should always ask for money to avoid pets been taken by scammers and immediately resold on Gumtree. Or worse ... used for dogfighting.
Our lovely doodle was rehomed at 2 years (sold in a puby the man who had him from a pup) then again six months later (Gumtree). We were lucky to get him the second time and the chap was genuinely upset it hadn’t worked out. He’s been with us 4 1/2 years.
I hope it works out for the wee dog.
Somehow I don't think its quite so likely as those who can get them free though ...We paid £300 for our Labradoodle BUT we were very heavily vetted including scrutining home visits first to see if we, AND OUR HOME, were suitable.
Anyone with money in their pocket can buy a dog ON A WHIM then realise they made a mistake.
Yes, that's my point. The seller doesn't know, or in many cases doesn't care, what kind of person or home the dog is going to whether money changes hands or not.Somehow I don't think its quite so likely as those who can get them free though ...
