When a one-year-old French Bulldog named Pine Green was adopted from the Westminster Adoption Group and Services (WAGS) in Southern California, he thought he had found his forever home. And then, his new parents tried to sell him for a profit on Craigslist.
As Shereé from The Real Housewives of Atlanta would say: “Hell to the no, to the no, no, no.”
Pine Green was one of 78 French and English bulldogs rescued, and put up for adoption by WAGS. The processing fees for adopting the pups was high — $500 for adults, and $800 for puppies. Even still, WAGS received over 4,000 applicants for the purebreds, who along with being freaking adorable, are expensive to buy on the open market.
Staff at WAGS thought they had vetted the adoptive parents thoroughly. Then someone forwarded them the Craigslist ad for Pine Green, who was described as “cute, kid-friendly and social.” His price tag? $1,450.
Like, come on! How could you try to make a profit off a creature that just needs a home? WAGS agrees. And they are not taking this sitting down. Oh no. They’ve lawyered up, and they intend to get Pine Green back from the despicable people who lied to them.
If you’re as outraged as they are, then channel your energy in a positive direction. There are six bulldogs still up for adoption — all of them female, and all of them between the ages of 5 and 10. Why haven’t they found homes yet? Because many people don't want an older dog. But they make the best pets! Poor sweeties – we’re just saying!
