    Back on April 22, I replied to an ad for a husky that needed some rehabilitation to fix some issues.

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...k&gl=ca&client=firefox-a&source=www.google.ca

    I received no reply.

    On May 1, they posted another ad looking for a home for this dog. They had rescued her from somewhere else.

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...k&gl=ca&client=firefox-a&source=www.google.ca

    On May 5, this ad popped up warning that she had given someone the dog, and the person is now selling the dog claiming no issues. The person's name is Gail and she provides the phone number.

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...k&gl=ca&client=firefox-a&source=www.google.ca

    Now there's this ad on another for sale site, asking $400 (for obviously the same dog) and giving a sob story about needing to give up their dog.

    http://www.usedpei.com/classified-a...y---9-monhs--4-sale-to-the-best-home_14785828

    And here's the new Kijiji post asking $300, and saying they "don't have time for her anymore". http://halifax.kijiji.ca/c-pets-dog...-for-a-nice-family-to-love-W0QQAdIdZ281920132

    I responded to this last ad, and they sent me an email with the same phone number as in the UsedPEI ad, and the warning ad by the other lady. A reverse look up says it's registered to Gail Benoit.

    This is the very same dog, and they're claiming she has no issues, and it was their pet. What a lie.

    Further digging came up with a bunch of other ads with similar stories, or more puppies. For those of you not familiar, Gail Benoit is one of Nova Scotia's most infamous animal brokers, and has been charged with animal cruelty, selling puppies with parvo, etc. She's bad bad news.

    Now, the other lady should have done her homework before just giving the dog to Gail under the ruse of rehabilitation (like giving her to a reputable rescue, for example), but something needs to be done about Gail.

    Here are the other ads I could dig up with the same phone number:
    http://halifax.kijiji.ca/c-pets-dog...vailable-to-approved-homes-W0QQAdIdZ281918442

    http://www.usedpei.com/classified-ad/Perfect--Little-River-Toller-Puppies_14663641

    Her phone number is 245-2041, and the email I got a message from had the name Casey Lanford on it, and the address ladybug101@email.com.

    Address is 11386 217 Hwy, Digby, NS B0V1A0 according to Canada 411, though there is some word that she is operating out of Halifax now.

    I have reported this to the SPCA, and I have also reported it to Kijiji.

    If she was so concerned that her dog with issues was going to a good home she should've done her research first. Special pets need special homes. Poor pup. :( Dogs like this one need good owners that want to work with them to help them resolve or manage their issues.

    There are very few bad dogs, and very many bad owners.

    Such a good looking doggie in such poor hands!

    Just spent an hour reading about these idiots and came across some absolutely unbelievable videos on youtube. They're certainly a classy pair. It amazes me they haven't both been put away (for more than a couple weeks)

    Remember that guy in Ontario who beat the crap out of an animal abuser outside the courthouse when the scumbag was released with a fine?

    Maybe we can invite him here for a vacation.

    That is just the most disgusting page documenting evil I have seen in a while.
    Every non violent offense is categorized and dealt with a dozen ways in our oversized criminal code, but this kind of deliberate evil is ignored? Keep it classy politicos!

    She's reached legendary status as far as animal abusers go.
