Important announcement: changes to American Bully XL adverts on Everyday Pets

What does this mean for you?

1. Advert removals:

To be compliant with the ban, we will be removing all American Bully XL advertisements from our “For sale,” “For stud,” and “For adoption” categories. This includes pictures and any relevant information. 

2. No new adverts:

Again, to align with the new regulations, we will put a block on any new advertisements featuring American Bully XL dogs. This means you won’t be able to create new listings for this breed on Everyday Pets after the ban kicks in.

Resources You Can Use
