Evil Bob going for free in online ad

Tem Sosa, a pig farmer, tried to get rid of her border collie when she recently posted an ad online. While she has no qualms about giving the dog away for free she frankly writes about his bed behaviour, wonky teeth and smelly breath.

In the advert that she posted onto the secondhand sales site Preloved she said:

‘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.

‘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 Sosa’s tried to establish on the social networking site whether she was being genuine about the sale of the dog.

Rich Kemp wrote:

‘You don’t mean that! Bob’s your son! You’d be lost without him and his awful habits.’

However, it is not all bad as she later admitted that Bob does have some good qualities – he travels well in a car and lies down all day while she works.
