Downham Market resident’s rant about her ‘evil’ border collie in online advert

It is said that dog is man's best friend but pig farmer Tem Sosa has had enough of Bob, her 'evil' border collie, and has told the world and his dog why in an online rant.

The Downham Market resident is giving away her pet for free and has not held anything back about her 'thieving' and 'bad-tempered' dog in an online advert.

'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,' she wrote on the second-hand sales website Preloved.

'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.'

Speaking to the EDP, Mrs Sosa said she has nicknamed the border collie 'E-Bob' which stands for Evil Bob.

She added: 'E-Bob is literally ruining our lives and he is a constant hassle 24/7. I have put up with him for 10 years and whoever takes him on needs to know what they are getting themselves into.

'I think the ideal person to take him off my hands would be someone who is retired and can spend their time focusing on E-Bob and giving him attention all the time.

'I have eight dogs and all the others are as good as gold but E-Bob goes around winding them up. He also escapes all the time and I am always shouting at him not to do things.'

Friends of Mrs Sosa posted entries on her Facebook page asking if she was joking. Responding to one message on Facebook, she said: 'There is no psychology in it. I am just being honest so people know what they would be getting into.'

Others joked how it was the 'worst advert ever' and that Mrs Sosa would never be free of her dog after being so honest about his behaviour.

Mrs Sosa did concede that Bob was not all bad: 'His few good qualities are he travels quietly in the car and will lie under your desk at work all day,'

Mrs Sosa had previously hit the national headlines after she paid �1,500 for two 'miniature' pigs which grew to 10st.

She had bought piglets Maggie and Martha believing they were micro pigs, a designer breed that grows to just 18in. But they quickly grew into full-size Tamworth crosses.
