It's why someone who runs over a and kills a guy while drunk can come back into the NFL with little attention and Mike Vick is still routinely spoken about with scorn. Americans love their dogs, and the basis of the humor here is just not going to register as funny for the average American....and the commercial has little redeeming qualities as an ad without the humor factor for a large part of it's audience (since the end kills the one other possibly avenue with the awwww factor).

    And why not Craig's List? They don't victimize puppies
    Actually it's a web domain purchasing site. I have no idea how this ad connects to their product -- yet another reason it's a terrible ad.

    Well, Godaddy implies that by having a domain name, like smokeandmirrors.com, you can sell yourself, or basically anything you wanna' do. I believe they have an option to turn your domain into an auction or selling location on the internet, if you want to.

    Yeah, and I sort of get it having already known what GoDaddy is. But as you can see, it doesn't translate well to someone who doesn't already know.

    True. They should maybe have stayed with Danika Patrick racing or something. People do get sensitive about their pets. Godaddy probably never saw this torpedo coming.

    This one is heartwarming though.

    I don't think that's what you're talking about but I think I have a rough idea of what they might look like. If you ever want to look at destruction of a dog breed, look out what breeders did to the German Shepherds. The last time human beings deformed a living being in such a manner, the year had BC written next to it.
    No, that's a specific breed. This is a "blue Basset Hound":

They're well behaved since they've never been mistreated, so no problem there. The last one I had went to a farmer in another State - we never are told where they go - but they're just as strict about checking new homes as an child adoption agency is about their rules, and they do follow up calls, just in case it's not a good match, since some are young, and need training. They are spayed or neutered if needed before they go to a new home, too. It was a shame that they had to do that with the last one I had, since he was a rare tri-color registered with the AKC, but those are their rules.
    Hi Pol, in order to keep your 501(c)3 non-profit designation, as a rescue you have to spay or neuter your dogs before they're adopted.

    Most rescues are like the reputable breeders - they won't place a dog with a home without a home visit, vet checks, references, and very thorough interview.

    Huh? All breeders are not tagged with the negative buzzword "puppy mill". And nobody ever said that.
