Unbelievable!

:mad: Not sure what thread this would go under, but if the person sells 122 Basenjis for $200 (Negotiable!), I'd bet a goodly number of them would wind up in rescue.

I forwarded this to Flo H. in Mesa, she had never heard of this either, but it probably would explain why the Arizona breeders had trouble finding homes this year.

The site was livedeal.com

AARGH!

Oh, my heavens!
What a mess for the pups and the poor breeding bitches.
Sigh.
What a mess for rescue as well.

I wonder if this was supposed to read as 12? or 1-2 or???? I dunno, but how in the heck would anyone (even a puppy mill) wind up with 122 Basenjis!?!?!

That's what I was thinking. Maybe it's a typo?

If you scroll down further, the link is to puppyfind.com so I wonder if it is a puppyfind.com ad, but because you have to put in a city/state it is showing up as AZ?

Certainly there are at times well over 122 Basenjis for sale on Puppyfind?

I just checked out the link to livedeal.com and it has a link at the bottom of the page which will send you to puppyfind.com
Puppyfind.com compiles a list of breeders from all over the world who sell and ship puppies. It looks like there are over 122 puppies from different breeders. Its very misleading but still…..122 basenji puppies. Man oah Man!!!!! So sad.
I should bite my tongue and not say this but it really frustrates/saddens me to see this going on. IMO a responsible breeder would plan a breeding in advance and already have placed these puppies into good pre-screened homes.

There is a similar ad for Rhodesian Ridgebacks, 127 of them. No doubt a link to another site or puppy mill ~SIGH~

Puppyfind.com has been around for years… and 90% of the people that advertise on there are BYB's... A few of us "responsible" breeders will advertise there and in fact I have put ads for myself and for the Basenji Club of America as a way to try and get people to call, email, anything to try and find a responsible breeder....

Considering the unlikelihood of someone having over 20 LITTERS of Basenji puppies in JULY, I'm going to venture this person is a scammer.

Or the number are codes. For instance 122 may mean 1 adult dog, 2 adult bitches, 2 puppies.

I still think that with the link to Puppyfind.com that this is a general ad for their site, but just my opinion

Looks like your connection to Basenji Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
