Brown has created a website to sell the puppy offspring of his Pit Bulls Duke and Shadow. The eight puppies are available for $1000 each, just by clicking a Paypal button on his website.
Brown claims that he is selling the pups because he wants to make sure that they go to good homes, yet he requires no background checks on any of the buyers. They can just click on a Paypal button and instantly purchase a puppy.
If Brown cared at all about the puppies, wouldn't he screen the buyers? And if he didn't have plans to keep the puppies, or know people who wanted them, why in the world didn't he get his dogs fixed?
We suggest that Brown spends a little time visiting his local shelter where he'll see plenty of wonderful pit bulls ready to endure a death sentence because of people like him who don't bother to spay or neuter their pets. Once again, this young man doesn't seem to understand the consequences of his actions and how his choices can negatively effect others.
This story is just sad and we hope that Brown will, at the very least, add a screening process to his pit bull sale. If he cares at all about those puppies, he'll make sure their owners have only the best intentions. Unfortunately, knowing his history with decision-making, we're not holding our breath that he'll make the right call here either.
