Really guys, with facebook, if you don't want everyone to be able to see it, then don't post it. Facebook can take your pictures and do with them what they like. That doesn't mean they will-but they certainly can.
I don't have a problem with it only because she is not trying to claim them as her own dogs, she is just sharing the photos on her wall. It is a little weird to get a notification saying a stranger is sharing your photo but it is not something I would report to facebook.

She's only sharing the photo's - not reposting them, so I don't see the problem. That's one of Facebooks features.
Anything you put on the internet can be shared or stolen and reposted.

I've seen pictures of Milo uploaded to places by other people and if they're not making money from them, I don't really care.

I'm actually flattered when people share pics of him.

Oh wow calling brazilian scammers, byb and so on... I'm sorry but this is going too out there. I agree that if you don't want your pictures to be share, don't post it. We have been living on a digital era has been a while and once is up there you have no control. And yes I'm Brazilian and I offer to write her a message asking/informing her that dog owners are feeling uncomfortable with the sharing and no one bother to answer me. Seems like the idea here is to make a fuzz about it. I'm sorry but that's my honest opinion. The girl is sharing pictures of all sorts of animals not claiming or selling anything, just showing her love and appreciation for it.

At the bottom of the pictures it says : Like Comment Share.
If you don't want to share, don't post it. I don't post pictures of my family on FB because I don't want them plastered all over the internet. I don't keep a photo album with private pictures on the internet. What pictures I post I don't care if they are shared or not.

I have had this happen too. Not sure if with the same person. I don't mind if they just like the look of my dog, but the fear is that a BYB or puppy mill will hijack a photo to promote their business. And this has happened. Recently on FB a woman was basically advertising "Micro Tea Cup" maltese puppies. One looked very sick to me. She was using photos from one of the very well known breeders and a couple of our members on her header and avitar. Her actual dogs were pretty shabby looking, but she was drawing business with show dog pics that she stole. None of us would be happy to be helping to support that type of a thing.

Anyone who worries that their photos will be stolen and ill used simply needs to imbed their name on the photo before posting it. You can do watermark style that won't really distract, but still prevent some unscrupulous person from claiming it as their own. Anything that you post on the internet is fair game, unless you copyright...or imbed your name. I, personally, don't care. I never post anything I am not okay with the whole world seeing...well, not any more.

Beatriz, I don't think anyone is bashing this person nor claiming she is a BYB-- I didn't know her and got numerous notifications that she was sharing my photos and I was curious if anyone knew who she was. I didn't respond to your post earlier about whether I wanted you to contact her because I didn't think that that was necessary since she was just sharing the pics. Other posts discussing the things BYBs have done with pictures they have taken from others were just that-- discussions.

We raise horses and have had problems with people taking and using photos of our horses from our website for many years. Some people ask first but I suspect most don't. One time years ago I was browsing ebay and someone was selling COFFEE with a photo of our stallion on the label, taken right from our website. I was NOT happy that someone else was trying to make money off of my horse's image when I am the one paying for him, his food, his care, and cleaning up after him everyday. When I asked her to please immediately stop using his image to sell coffee she actually got snippy about it. Sheesh! At any rate, I understand your discomfort. They are our babies, we should have sole use of their images; but once a photo is on the net, it's gone.
