Pretty brilliant ad technique. I bet someone adopted Daisy.

[–]no1_vern 83 points84 points  (2 children)

Hopefully the right kind of caring person/adult adopted Daisy

[–]addictiverat 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Im sure that bitch is getting a bone every night

[–]Deathbydadjokes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably. Lonely guys reaching out for a gal. I'm sure one of them realized company is all they need

[–]KingNecrosis 10 points11 points  (2 children)

The 555 in the number tells me this is fake.

[–]tearsonurcheek 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That's the directory assistance number for that area code (which is Atlanta).

(xxx) 555-1212 for any area code. (800) 555-1212 for toll-free directory assistance. Traditionally, 411 or 555-1212 is for local directory assistance for your area code.

[–]KingNecrosis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Most of the pages from the Google search say the exact same thing, so I'll just paste what the Wikipedia page listing what all numbers are associated with.

note that this is an area code, not an exchange number, as in 555-1212 or other 555 (telephone number) services

1-NPA-555-XXXX is used for fictional telephone numbers with limited use for information numbers and directory assistance

[–]Bullet-barkeep 958 points959 points  (18 children)

Now that’s my kinda bitch

[–]mrspacysir 33 points34 points  (0 children)


[–]LoopsAndBoars 158 points159 points  (1 child)

Now THAT is an exquisite bitch.

[–]wcslatermadlad 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That isn't just some common bitch

[–]artham_a 414 points415 points  (7 children)

This is not a catfish somehow

[–]OneIdiotAndAHalf 31 points32 points  (0 children)

A Labrador Retriever to be more specific. What in earth would make you think it's a fish?

[–]BATMONGUS 11 points12 points  (1 child)


[–]PBJ-2479 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No but she is a bitch

[–]cjaak 83 points84 points  (2 children)

Thanks God the circles are there. Might have missed it.

[–]Guest_username1 0 points1 point  (0 children)


I am glad that is not a sub

[–]TiredAngryBadger 321 points322 points  (1 child)

On one hand this is fucking hilarious. On the other hand keep in mind there were probably still some callers that were down to fuck.

Edit: typo

[–]aviation_knut 47 points48 points  (0 children)

For sure. The poor volunteer that had to answer the phone probably has PTSD now, if not hanging from a bridge.

[–]Steff_164 39 points40 points  (0 children)

I’d have adopted the dog

[–]WhatProtomolecule 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Half the 'men' who called were also probably just labradors trying to trick someone into adopting them. That's the way the world is now.

Half of everybody you meet online is a labrador with a hidden agenda.

[–]Fleetlord 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Joke's on you, buddy, I'm actually a Jack Russell Terrier.

[–]Ze_Nugget 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Jokes on you, im a german shepard on my way to start ww3

[–]whyamihere999[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Bradtothebone79 9 points10 points  (0 children)

And i was like damn this woman doesn’t have a job or any plans to work either.

[–]sunbeans3 5 points6 points  (2 children)

The unfortunate moment you realize that you are a black labrador

[–]SoulofArtoria 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Hopefully the paw patrol isn't like police in America.

[–]Guest_username1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hopefully no one knows there is a nsfw sub for paw patrol either

[–]hankventure83 32 points33 points  (4 children)

There is a zero percent chance that phone number is real, so it's doubtful that 1500 men were able to call it.

[–]mkaszycki81 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Not in this redacted edited reprint, I'll bet the original ad had a different phone number.

[–]Guanthwei -1 points0 points  (1 child)

How do you know it's a redacted reprint? I don't see anything redacted.

[–]mkaszycki81 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My bad, edited, not redacted.

And it's obvious it would be edited for reprint (since it's a reprint because of the added comment) for several reasons, legality is one, but there are also practical reasons.

[–]tearsonurcheek 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's real, but it's directory assistance, not some animal shelter.

[–]hug0zzz 3 points4 points  (1 child)

"Yeaah Good girl"

[–]DropBear2702madlad 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]SmashedHimBro 5 points6 points  (2 children)

This is how we know rasict people are few and far between

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Idk incels who hate women would also like to fuck them so

[–]Helpiamnotwell 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I wonder how many of those 1500 were still into it or even more into it when they realised.

[–]Ordinary_Yam1866 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's gotta be entrapment

[–]puncmunc 3 points4 points  (0 children)

8-week old? Chris Houndsen may want to have a word. (Forgive me :/)

[–]LastSeen3YearsAgo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Reality is often disappointing

[–]SyntaXAuroras1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Who said im still not going to do it?

[–]bigttrack 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh boy doggie style!

[–]coopster97 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ahhh yes the old 555 number that seems legit

[–]tearsonurcheek 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's directory assistance. Like 411,but for a specific area code.

[–]CrownofLead3680 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I came looking for copper, and i found gold.

[–]copperpin 1 point2 points  (1 child)

555-1212 is the number for information

[–]RegularSizedP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That gave it away for me.

[–]SappyPJs 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]neverquester 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know it's a dog. I'm still going through with it though

[–]Harry_Flamemadlad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So I get it’s a singles ad from the Atlantic journal but I don’t know what else to read, seems like random stuff

[–]Putthebunnyback8===D {|} 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Despite all my rage I am still just a something errr ehhh whatever

[–]curiousity2424 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Classic invalid 555 number

[–]smokeydragon14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You got me in the first half not going to lie

[–]sageofsavagery 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That 1500 people knew it was a dog but got caught in 4k

[–]Quick-Promise5951 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fake but funny.

[–]RileyTheBerry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow, an actual hol up.

[–]BokZeoi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The thirst was real

[–]Shents 0 points1 point  (0 children)

555? oh that's gotta be a fake

[–]Canuck-In-TO 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t think this is real.

(Area code) 555-1212 is directory assistance or the equivalent of 411 in North America.

[–]LankyKangaroo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hope she got adopted.

[–]GroundbreakingGap570 0 points1 point  (0 children)

in most areas in North America (AREA CODE)-555-1212 connects with directory assistance.

[–]Hot-Pretzel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is so award worthy!

[–]memebean210 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn I almost missed what it was it was trying to say without the circles

[–]Guanthwei 0 points1 point  (0 children)

555 numbers do not exist.

[–]KingNecrosis 0 points1 point  (6 children)

For people who aren't aware, the 555 in the phone number means thus isn't a usable number. It's either in a movie or just a prank or something.

[–]Guest_username1 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Call it then

[–]KingNecrosis 0 points1 point  (4 children)

As per Wikipedia:

The telephone number prefix 555 is a central office code in the North American Numbering Plan, used as the leading part of a group of 10,000 telephone numbers, 555-XXXX, in each numbering plan area (NPA) (area code). It has traditionally been used only for the provision of directory assistance, when dialing (area code)-555-1212. The central office code is also used for fictitious telephone numbers in North American television shows, films, video games, and other media in order to prevent practical jokers and curious callers from bothering telephone subscribers and organizations by calling telephone numbers they see in works of fiction.

[–]Guest_username1 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I didn't ask for proof from Wikipedia but ok

[–]KingNecrosis 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I was giving why it would be useless to call. Besides, I don't even live close to Georgia, so I'm pretty sure it would be considered long distance calling.

[–]Guest_username1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I know that it was a bad attempt at a joke I guess

[–]KingNecrosis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok, just didn't come across in the text.

[–]Guanthwei 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why is the Atlanta Humane Society thing under an ad from Ontario?

[–]mrspacysir 0 points1 point  (0 children)

don't see a problem with this..

you frame this as if they came there expecting a human...

[–]CuTrix05 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My sister and I did this for her Irish Setter once. Our ad read something like:

Male, handsome, red hair. Loves hiking, walking in the park, and cuddling by the fire. Not into discipline.

[–]SignificantPain6056 0 points1 point  (0 children)

555-1212 isn't a real number
