Mark Zuckerberg May Have Lied About Puppy Adoption, Bought From Breeder

As if he couldn’t have enough scandal surrounding his name, man’s best Facebook friend Mark Zuckerberg may have lied about his recent puppy adoption.

Beast, the Hungarian Sheepdog, already has his own Facebook page (duh), and over 12,000 ‘likes’ as well as multiple published photos.

The Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) praised Zuckerberg and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan for bringing the pup into their home, but wanted to make it known that the term ‘adopted’ technically wasn’t used correctly in this situation.

According to ARC, “the term ‘adopt’ is typically used when rescuing an animal who otherwise would not have a home,” and further research shows that the couple may have in fact bought Beast from a breeder in Oregon.

Millions of homeless dogs are killed in shelters every year, and as a young, prominent public figure, Zuckerberg had the chance to send a message to all concerning the need for more people to rescue helpless canines, the ones who are neglected and desperately need homes. Instead, he chose to purchase a dog and slap the word ‘adoption’ on it as if he were doing a noble deed.

Although Beast is plenty adorable, Zuckerberg’s purchase from a breeder means that somewhere in the world, a homeless puppy will go another day without being adopted. Dislike!

UPDATE: It has been confirmed that Beast indeed was bought from a breeder!
