Kijiji Buyers BEWARE of Puppy SCAM!

Gail Benoit & Dana Bailey continue to sell puppies despite their previous convictions of Animal Cruelty and upcomming charges on numerous other animal cruelty charges. They are now operating out of Dartmouth/Halifax area & continue to post ads on Kijiji in hopes of generating new sales.

"There was no doubt the pair mistreated dogs."

"The distressed state of the puppies was not a sudden occurrence. It developed over time. Even if the appellants’ control of the puppies had been brief — a matter of days — there was ample time and opportunity to relieve their then obvious distress, or to begin doing so,"

Characterization lacked "any air of reality" - Justice Peter Bryson Source

Thanks again Esther

Thanks goes to Esther Smith for saving a lot of people from the same heartbreak that she had this summer when her dear little mini dachshund died of parvo and was sold as a 9 week old when it was in fact only 4 weeks and not weaned. She has continually warned us through the press, and facebook groups and Kijiji. We need to educate the public every way available so that NOBODY ever buys a dog from a parking lot, flea market, etc. You need to be wise when spending money on a dog. Go to the nearest animal shelter and be a HERO and rescue a nice , healthy dog. They have little dogs too. If you answer an ad because the seller has a pic of a cute little, teddy bear, be very careful that it is not from a well known puppy miller/broker who sold Esther her pup. Let us all hope they are found guilty of cruelty and are banned from owning so much as a flea.(they have plenty to spare).Thanks again Esther, people are finally catching on.....I hope
