Chris Brown has been fighting bad publicity since 2008, when the R&B singer got into an argument with his then-girlfriend, fellow R&B singer Rihanna, which escalated in physical violence. Rihanna was hospitalized with several facial lacerations, and Brown was charged with felony assault and making criminal threats. Since then, Brown has been rebuilding his public image, and no attempt at this has been more obvious than his recent decision to sell puppies.

Yes, you heard right. Chris Brown is selling puppies. And you can buy them.

On Sunday evening, Brown's mother Joyce Hawkins took to Twitter to make the announcement:

CHRIS BROWN PUPPIES FOR SALE, Hawkins tweeted. GO TO cbbreeds.webs.com.

It almost seems like a joke, since webs.com domains are free website builders for those of us without double Platinum records. But it doesn't look like a joke.

On the website, called CB Breeds, Brown offers weeks-old puppies for $1,000 each. Each of the available puppies comes with a pet registration, a list of current vaccinations, an examination by a veterinarian, a health guarantee, and a four generation performance pedigree.

According to his website, Brown's available puppies -- mostly pit bulls -- include four females, named Princess, Precious, Pretty and Beauty, and four males, named Fortune, Music, Jett and Freedom.

If you're interested in buying one of Chris Brown's puppies, simply e-mail cbbreeds@gmail.com. The site says that depending on the buyers' location, some of these dogs can be delivered.
