Pig farmer Tem Sosa tries to get rid of 'worst dog ever' in web ad
Pig farmer Tem Sosa is giving away her pet border collie, Bob, for free and has made no qualms about the thieving, bad-tempered dog's wonky teeth and bad breath in her frank advert.
Evil Bob would love to find the perfect home as I have put up with him for nearly ten years and can’t take much more,’ she wrote on the second-hand sales website Preloved.
‘He is probably the worst dog you will ever meet. He started life as a failed mountain rescue dog – probably peed on the climber and stole their Kendal mint cake.
‘He has caused nothing but trouble here as he doesn’t fit in well with a large group of dogs.
‘He looks older than his years, has wonky teeth, bad breath and a bad attitude. He is terrified of cats, snaps at horses’ heels and nips pigs.
‘He should not be left unsupervised indoors as he steals food off the side, licks the cooker and pees at terrier height so as not to get the blame.’
Friends of Mrs Sosa posted entries on her Facebook site asking if she was joking.
Rich Kemp wrote: ‘You don’t mean that! Bob’s your son! You’d be lost without him and his awful habits.’
But the 38-year-old from Downham Market, Norfolk, responded: ‘I so do mean it! Managed to palm him off on some fool for three months but unfortunately he is back.’
Others joked how it was the ‘worst advert ever’ and that Mrs Sosa would never be free of her dog after being so honest about his behaviour.
Mrs Sosa did concede that Bob was not all bad: ‘His few good qualities are he travels quietly in the car and will lie under your desk at work all day,’ she added.
