After advise from some on the forum and looking into it myself, I followed suit of some other people on 'preloved' and advertised a rescue home available.

I've just had this message:

My ad: Hello. We are the owner of 5 Chihuahuas and are experienced with the breed. We are looking to help out another little one this year. If you know of a female chihuahua who needs a good home, get in touch. They will have a lifetime of happiness.

Message: You should just say that you are wanting to breed for cheap! 5 star dig owners I don't think so! Also what experience do you need to have chihuahuas? They are the easiest breed ever?

My reply: Sorry? This is a bizarre message. I wouldn't even dream of breeding. My 3 boys and 2 girls are all fixed. I am looking for a rescue as I am against breeding. My two girls are rescues.

And, although I do not feel I need to justify myself to you, I am very particular about who looks after my chis and I believe that if I were ever in the sad situation of having to give them up I would want to ensure that they went to someone with experience in dealing with this small breed.

Please do go waste your time elsewhere. I can't imagine having enough time in the day to send pointless messages to those that you do not even know.

Second message: You need to be reported.

Me: I do believe you do for abusing me. I'm quite happy for you to come and visit my home, with an RSPCA inspector to assess the situation. They are treated like kings, not accessories and there is certainly no breeding occurring. The offer is there.


Then I blocked her.

I give up trying to be nice. People can be so cruel.

Maybe they think you are a person ,who has been on FB many times on all websites saying they can give a chi a good home then selling them on.I wouldn't take it as personnel to you,just people being careful.

Some people are just horrible and have too much time on their hands. I'm so sorry you had to deal with that. Ignore the ignorant people on there. We're behind you

When you communicate with people via Internet you so often discover trolls and outright crazies. At least this was not a Nigerian Prince looking for help receiving his $5,000,000 inheritance. Sorry you were subjected to abuse.

I think that chihuahua-people is almost100% free of the nutcases. Of course, many of you here post so frequently that it is obvious from continued reading that you are decent and honorable people.

Remain a cynic about the outside world.

Wherabouts are you? I know of a nice lady in Gloucestershire who is re-homing her breeding stock. She had one bitch and several dogs left, some of which are only young. She is charging for them, but I thought fair prices.

Thanks Joe, but you don't get to see the ones that don't make it through moderation

OP, don't worry, one crank will always be out there to wind people up - I hope you get a wonderful little female to add to your crew!
