Wow, some "breeder"
I could say a lot, but I won't.
Any one else see a problem here? 5 litters in 4.5 yrs!?!?!?!?
"She has had 5 litters of pups(we bred her with our male, whom we do not have anymore). This has not effected her negatively in any way!"

...I do not see the big deal. They do not say the reason they are getting rid of the dog is that it is too hyper, they just mentioned the dog is energetic. They have 2 kids and another on the way, the husband travels (no way to know if he traveled 4.5 years ago when they got the dog), the dog seems to be taken care of (basic training, shots, etc) and they provided a good home. Because of a change in their situation they are not able to give the dog the attention and time it deserves. Instead of dropping off at some shelter they are working to find a suitable family. Only I do not know about is fair amount of litters. I never have and never plan to breed a dog.
Such pretentiousness on this board sometimes.
Quick Google search says dogs can have 1-3 litters per year but the ideal is 1 every 12-18 months, so their number is high. But still don't see overall problem with their post.
Perhaps a dog that is "too hyper" to live well with a family shouldn't be bred in the first place.
And any legitimate breeder would never need to post an ad like this.
In fact, if you read their ad it is not stated or implied that the dog's energy level has any bearing on them looking to re-home the dog. The husband's work schedule, a 3rd kid on the way, and lack of free time in the family are the reasons listed. They mention the dog's energy level so that anyone interested is aware of it so a house granny or someone in a similar situation as they are in does not look into getting the dog. Because of a lab's popularity a lot of people look into getting one without properly researching and are unaware how energetic they are.

Difference between sarcasm and pretentious. Though I would not expect someone who does not understand quotations to grasp that concept.
