    Exclamation Bulldog(S) on Craigslist - what do you all do when you see one listed?

    In the past Week, there has been TWO Bullies posted on Craigslist in Northern Delaware - what do you do? who do you contact who can do something? I'm not in a position to add anyone else to the family, but I have no problem playing Bully Taxi -

    Looking for any insight for when I see them listed - (neither were 'Free to good home' either)

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    While I think a ad source such as Craigslist is OK, it depends on what was for sale.

    What was the price, where were the puppies at, why are they being sold? Are these puppies by the breeder, are they available for inspection at the home/kennel?There are so many scams in every type of dog breed and buyer be aware is not common sense for many people.


    Do a ad search and see how many "For Sale" websites pop up for all types of animals.

    Everyone can help to educate the public about scams. What to look out for and what are problems and concerns with low-priced Bullies.

    Good Day~

    To be honest..I don't look! I know..I know..bury my head in the sand! I find I get too upset if I see any critter in need. Craigslist is famous for people getting dogs off of to use in dog fighting. The thought terrifies me and I can't look and not be prepared to intervene. It's wrong on all levels..I know. But it's my limit line..

    Well the two in particular were adult dogs, one was listed as 2 years old and healthy - I think the other was 5 years old with allergies, 2 different ads, on different days etc.

    I just hate seeing it, and since I didnt hit the powerball, I'm not independently wealthy or anything :p

    well... if you are me you buy one. ugh.... Thats how I got my Miila, saw her and fell in love. BUT often times people are stealing them and then trying to sell them on craigs list as rehoming which is awful and many are scams as well. I do usually send them a note offering them to check out or consider rescue for rehoming but funny enough I NEVER get any replies. They always want money.

    Well, I watch craigslist about once a week and have never seen one (phew!) but if I DID, I would contact a rescue and let them know the post is up. Whichever one is closest.

    I found Gio on a similar site, eBay classifieds. The family we got him from wanted to know who they were giving their dog too which makes sense, but luckily for us they truly loved Gio and denied Gio to 3 other people who were interested in him. They denied the other people because they didn't know the breed/ or they sounded "sketchy". But sadly I don't believe this is the case for most of the dogs on craigslist and similar sites, the sellers are just trying to get some $$ and don't care who they dog goes too! I also look at these sites weekly to see, and just a few days ago the most adorable bully was put on craigslist and I am so tempted but just don't think I can handle 3 dogs! I want to so badly, poor guy is only 1 and who knows who these people will sell him too!

    @2BullyMama I just emailed the Long Island Bulldog Rescue and sent them the link and offered to help with transportation. I can't believe New England doesn't have ONE bully rescue!!! I really hope they can do something for this adorable guy! Do rescues usually take bullys off of craigslist?

    Rescues do try if they have the room, but a lot of the time the so called owner is looking for the $$$ or it is a puppymill trying to sell of the older dogs they have abused for years.

    @RaRett I'm not sure I understand the thread. I'm thinking you are referring to that someone trying to sell an Adult bully on Craig$list is wrong.. and to that I agree that Is is wrong...


    However, ¿if you are a breeder and trying to sell puppies what is the difference by which means you advertise the puppies?
    (Personal website, CraigSList, Ebay, Word of Mouth, Newspaper ad, Etc..,)

    I found Jack's breeder on CraigSlist. Jack had been returned by the original purchaser and was already 8 months old so I took it that the breeder went to CraigSlist to post pictures of Jack to find a new buyer.
    I'm glad he posted on CraigSlist.... if not, Jack would have never been in my life...

    Jack,

    I was on Craigslist, and just scanning the site when I came across a listing for an English Bulldog - it sent shutters down my spine, but then I got busy and didnt act on it, 2 days later I noticed a SECOND Bulldog listed -

    I did not contact the 'advertiser' so I'm not sure all what the scoop is on them - other than the brief descriptions - I didnt know if I should try to contact a rescue with the link or what. That is why I asked what others do when they see them
