Chris Brown Under Fire for Selling Pit Bull Puppies

Chris Brown Under Fire for Selling Pit Bull Puppies

R&B singer Chris Brown is now selling pit bull puppies online for $1000 each through his website CB Breeds, much to the dismay of animal advocates.

Brown’s rep, Maureen O’ Connor, confirmed that the site is legit and the pups he’s advertising were from a litter born at his family home in Virginia, but that he’s “simply selling them to make sure they go to good homes” and notes that it won’t be a new business, reports the AP.

Unfortunately, in Brown’s world the only thing a prospective buyer needs to do to be a good home is click on a PayPal link to add a puppy to their cart and fork over some cash …no questions asked, which can hardly ensure that these puppies will end up in a good forever home. These little ones can even be delivered, but no, shipping is not included in the price.

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles spoke out about the issue on behalf of pit bulls condemning backyard breeders and wants to encourage Brown to use his celebrity status to raise awareness about the importance of adoption instead.

“There is no reason to breed and produce more Pit Bull puppies when there are Pit puppies waiting for homes in every shelter in America,” said spcaLA President, Madeline Bernstein in a statement. “Furthermore, as some of these dogs suffer from and are victims of their owner’s misuse, they can be even harder to place.”

Hopefully this will be Brown’s last litter and these puppies will find good homes …where they can keep their entire ears, unlike mom and dad.

Take Action: Tell Chris Brown to stop selling puppy mill dogs!

I wouldn't buy a dog (from anyone). I would adopt.

Something stinks to high heaven. Actually higher than that. I hate to say they more than likely are going to be fought. I am so appreciative to the person that leaked the puppies. That is why I am highly suspicious. Didn't he spend time in prison for beating Rheana?? The Humane Society and S.P.C.A. have articles on their respective sights on the correlation between human abuse and animal abuse. I think he needs to be investigated and held responsible for the harm he inflicted on these vulnerable and tiny puppies

What a jackass. Like he needs the freakin' money.

No one should be breeding dogs...there are too many in shelters. I certainly wouldn't buy one from him even if I could afford it...which I can't. I can't even afford to rescue one because of the high cost of vet bills and living only on SS.
