Despite the fact that there are currently thousands of pit bull puppies, as well as other dogs, in animal shelters and rescue homes looking for a good home, Chris Brown decided that you should be paying him $1,000 for a puppy, instead of going to an animal shelter and saving one yourself for next to nothing. This is happening and we are all worse people for allowing it to be. From Hollywood.com:
Brown put seven puppies up for sale at the web site www.cbbreeds.webs.com. The price tag? $1,000 per pooch. And the dogs are pretty darn adorable, with names like Precious, Pretty, Music and Beauty. Sure, Brown hasn’t had the best track record with dogs. Last year, he was accused of racing dogs in the hallway of his West Hollywood complex after residents complained he was “the neighbor from hell.”
Now, I’m not saying that all breeders are inherently bad. Some are responsible, treat the dogs well, and are well-trained with handling and caring for dogs in both a nurturing and medical sense. Now what are the chances Chris is one of those kinds of people? Well, here’s a hint: someone asked him about his history of domestic violence during an interview, a question that his reps greenlit themselves, and his reaction was to storm off the set, throw a chair at a window, rip off his shirt, and storm through the streets of New York City. But yes, I’m sure he’s a great breeder.
