An ad on the Roanoke Craigslist has exploded far beyond the boundaries of southern Virginia because of what is being offered for free: a man’s girlfriend.

Staying put and decidedly not for sale? The man’s beagle, Molly.

“MY girlfriend does not like my beagle molly. SO i have to rehome her,” the mystery Craigslist poster wrote. He continued with a lengthy description, including, “She is a purebred from a wealthy area and I have had her 4 years. She likes to play games. Not totally trained.”

Finally, he finished it off with, “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!!”

As the ad went viral, the poster quickly made a few edits to clear things up.

Update 06/24/ sorry but she has been re-homed her original breeders (Her Parents) have taken her back home Molly & I are Looking for a new one :)
-THIS WAS A JOKE – A GOOD ONE APPARENTLY 
This has been a silly “WILLY BYERSS” production to make a point in a funny way thank you all for the laughs I got back in the emails… and thanks For putting this on the national news FOX ENT lol … I think the joke has run its course though I was just being my funny self … Now that a million people have seen this. The message I have is “ADOPT DONT SHOP & HAVING A DOG IS A LIFETIME COMMITMENT NOT JUST TIL ITS INCONVENIENT” 
MY GIRLFRIEND LOVES MY DOGS AND I DONT HAVE A BEAGLE I HAVE A PITBULL NAMED “OLAF’ I DID EXPECT THIS TO GO A LITTLE VIRAL BUT NOT NEARLY THIS FAR… SO I’M GONNA SET IT STRAIGHT :) IT WAS ORIGINALLY JUST TO MAKE THE POINT TO NOT GIVE UP ON YOUR DOGS AND TO BE FUNNY”

Let’s just hope that his girlfriend doesn’t decide to get a cat, or he—and possibly even Molly—could be Roanoke’s next “Curb Alert.”
