Bought a tame tiel they said it was a baby....it wasn't. That tiel flew away he would of been 5. But no more tiels and ill breed my own budgies to keep my lines. Or ill buy from a petstore. Never will take someone elses problem again. Ive seen ads for kittens that are only 6 weeks old i flag those. Most dogs on cl near me are pits. Or mutts. If i get another dog it will be a great pyrenese from a breeder not cl.
It really is
But oh wow that's insane.
Yeah, now that you mention it i've seen tons of young kittens. Ive seen 5 weeka even. And i don't think I've seen this but I've heard a story or saw a Tumblr post as it was happening, this person, a friend of the poster or friends mom or something, decided they no longer wanted the I think puppies but maybe kittens at like 4 weeks. It may have been even younger like 3 and wanted them gone. I feel like it may have even been younger than 3, it was a ridiculous amount.
Like *** don't have the babies if you can't commit?
There's pits on ours but surprisingly not a ton. In shelters theres some too though. Here it seems to mostly lab mixes and then the pits etc. Some Chihuahuas min pins etc. Small dogs like that. Lots of.mutts too
I will definitely get my next dog from a reputable breeder, whether show or working. I like mutts and one day I will adopt but shelters take so long and plus so many of the.dogs have such emotional baggage. I know there are a ton of great dogs in shelters that have zero issues but you don't know until you take them home and that is not a risk I can take right now. Our current dog came from a farm in western Massachusetts and she was really nice and even gave us a little info packet with the AKC paragraph on both breeds, vaccination records, training info, blurbs about ticks, grooming locations near everyone, there was just a ton of info, I still have the packet, BUT. They were still basically a BYB. He's a mutt and has horrible hips. They did have a much younger, maybe just recently born? Or still pregnant and unborn, i forget, Lab litter when we were there and the parents were there, mom got sick of babies and was back with her goats lol, dad and I think maybe a pregnant Lab momma, played fetch with us, etc. But they weren't special or anything. They were also raised in stalls so no socialization. Now, they did have a young son and lots of farm animals nearby but still. Raised outside rather than in home. Plus we didn't do socialization either. Now that was our responsibility and I knew it was important but we just didn't get around to it. Now we lucked out and got a great dog but he's sometimes reactive with other dogs. I think it's excitement and frustration he can't meet them rather than aggression (only one dog was he truly aggressive) because sometimes he's great and off leash but still. Also has anxiety. It would have helped if he had been from a good breeder and very well socialized. I will buy fromca breeder next time. We didn't know better then. Just saw a cute mutt puppy. (lab/pyr) he's 3 now, 4 in March
