Man Chooses Dog Over 'Wicked' Girlfriend in Hilarious Craiglist Ad

adorable beagle in grassWhen it comes to love, would you choose your pet or your partner? This week, an eyebrow-raising viral Craigslist ad raised that very question.


According to the ad, this sad, sweet-looking dog named Molly didn’t get along with her owner’s girlfriend, and so "she" would need to get rehomed. But which "she" was the ad talking about?

Check out the hilarious ad:

MY girlfriend does not like my beagle molly. SO i have to rehome her.

She is a purebred from a wealthy area and I have had her 4 years. She likes to play games. Not totally trained. Has long hair so she's a little high maintenance, especially the nails, but she loves having them done. Stays up all night yapping but sleeps while I work. Only eats the best, most expensive food. Will NEVER greet you at the door after a long day or give you unconditional love when you're down. Does not bite but she can be mean as hell!

So. . .. . ...anyone interested in my 30 year old, selfish, wicked, gold-digging girlfriend? Come and get her! Me and my dog want her re-homed ASAP!!

*Update 06/24/* sorry but she has been rehomed her original breeders (Her Parents) have taken her back home* Molly & I are Looking for a new one :)

The ad has now been revealed to be a joke designed to raise awareness about animal adoption and the commitment of pet ownership.

Nonetheless, it does raise the question about pet ownership versus romantic relationships.

Now, ideally, you get to have both: the sweet pet and the hot new love. But there are circumstances where that isn’t possible. My husband, for example, has serious allergies to pet dander. I wanted to get a dog when we first got together, but that would have required weekly allergy shots for him, so I decided “no” on the dog but “yes” on the dates. Had I already had the dog, I think I would have had to make a really hard decision.

And what about those who aren’t allergic but just aren’t that into pets? Can they find true happiness with someone who is a pet owner? Is it EVER fair to ask someone to give up their pet for your happiness?

What do you think? Who wins if it is pet versus partner?
