Wanna read something disgusting?

A girl on another board received an email that one of her family members was "fostering to own" a dog for a breeder.  The dog is 2.5 and has already had 2 litters totalling 22 puppies.  (The girl from the board is fairly horrified.)

From the "breeder's" website:

At [company name] Retriever we want our dogs to be as happy and healthy as possible. To do this we look for secure family homes for our dogs to live in while they are not being bred. 5 of our dogs are enjoying their families at this time.
From time to time we are looking for such "family homes" to foster a puppy or dog (mostly females available). This allows you to receive a pup at no initial charge to you. You will be required to provide necessary maintenance for your pup as well as feeding a quality age appropriate food. This will be your dog .
[company name] will retain all breeding right. This will require you to not spay or neuter your dog. When in season you will be required to keep her away from other males to keep her safe from unplanned breeding. When dog retires you will have full ownership.
If you live within a reasonable distance from our kennel and would like to be considered for this program please contact us.
Yours in Christ, [owners names]

A big old middle finger to you, stupid Nest.

Re: Wanna read something disgusting?

  • In Judaism, there is something called a "chillul Hashem"- a desecration of G-d, and the phrase is reserved for any act or behavior that casts shame on the Jewish people and G-d's Torah.

    The "Yours in Christ" after such a disgusting policy is the Christian equivalent.

  • Uhhh. 

    So pretty much they don't have room for all of the dogs they are breeding at their house and don't want to pay for the upkeep of said dogs but they want to profit from the puppies.  Not cool. 

  • Amen, mm.  I thought the same thing.

    That is revolting.  Basically they're looking to outsource their puppy mill.  Azzhats.

    Since you guys don't have your own nifty phrase for it, you can borrow ours. YWIA.
