Woman bombarded with hate messages after ad typo led to her offering terror puppies for sale

A school teacher from St Helens, Merseyside, was bombarded with hate messages after a typo in an advert branded her adorable terrier pups as terror puppies. The mistake in the classified ad led to Susannah Davies, 25, receiving dozens of vile calls and forced her to change her number.

She says she can now see the funny side, but admitted: “I have pages and pages of text telling me what a horrible person I am.” Her Jack Russell Fudge gave birth to the litter of pups, five girls, eight weeks ago. Their dad is Rodger, a Patterdale terrier.

Susannah advertised them for sale at £350 for the girls and £300 for boys. She added: “I’m the world’s biggest softie for dogs and they are the most adorable puppies. You could hardly describe them as terror dogs, they are so tiny and cute. One of them is pure white with black eyes and looks like a little Panda.

“I can’t believe that people thought I was advertising vicious pups. They look the absolute opposite of terror dogs.” The dog lover used the same paper to advertise her dogs first litter two years ago. She said: “All the dogs found good homes so I thought I was doing the right thing.”

People have no common sense. It was obviously a typo. Heck, I just read right over that part because I just assumed it was terriers.
