Truth in Advertising
« on: August 12, 2005, 08:43:35 am »
Here's the dirty truth; breeders, petshops, rescue groups, and individuals want to sell you an image of a wonderful puppy or dog, but they don't want you to know what the dog is really like. Only here, on Big Paws Only will you get the truth from an industry insider! Search you records, you too may have been victimized by this ruthless deception!

lemons..... could you give a little gackground on the pics. I know of and have worked with cases of back yard breeders and other so called breeders that sell puppies under false impressions. But having worked in rescue for many many years I have never seen or heard of a rescue group who would misslead an adopter with pics like this.

Where are the pics from and what in these particular cases were the reasons, is it the same dogs? Have they been cleaned up for the photo shoot or what?

Marit, I recognize these as his dogs and  'pup daddy' fosters. Looks to me like pics of them being angels juxtaposed with pics of them being messy little devils, because when people are fawning over pictures puppies they are fawning over cute clean ones, when the pups spend most of their time causing trouble. I thought they were funny.

lemons, I thought they were cute  :D

Lemons, those are too funny!  Where are the pictures of them counter surfing, shedding and hogging the bed?   ;D
