You'all will understand why I'm so torqued.

The classified ad in the Pets section of the local newspaper says "Yorkiepoo, tiny girl with big attitude, 4 months old, paper trained, perfect stocking stuffer."

Everything about this ad is a red flag for me. But what really set me off is the "stocking stuffer" part.

A dog is a dog, however small. They are not toys, even if they are classified as toy size. A person who buys a little "girl" as a "stocking stuffer" might decide to toss her away with other broken toys when her "big attitude" (aggressiveness) causes her to bite someone in the future.
