    Default Bullie puppies on craigslist

    Craigslist is not supposed to be a "Pet for Sale" site. It says it right there on the rules. Yet, today, my local craigslist had 7 different postings of English Bulldog puppy sales.

    No, not a rescue puppy... but for sale puppies... ads that go, "5 puppies available... hurry, they go quick!" or "this puppy will be ready to go in 2 weeks!". And boy, all the pictures are super duper cute.

    But, if I can't even trust that breeder to pay attention to Craigslist rules, how can I trust that breeder to be a quality breeder and not just a let's-make-some-money-with-these-dogs-in-this-here-backyard...

    So, what is this post really about? Well, in my opinion, I don't care if that breeder is a quality breeder, if they post an ad in craigslist, I will tell anybody I know not to buy those puppies.

    What do you guys think?

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    Agreed! It's just not the acceptable thing to do. And you as a reader of the ads can flag them for removal too. Brings the illicit ads to the operators of CL attention.

    They are either from a puppy mill who doesn't care about their pups or a scam.

    It is probably some type of scam... but either way I would never BUY a living being (dog, cat, fish, etc.) off Craiglist

    Wife just had a co-worker taken on a EB scam. We tried to warn her, but she said that they are too expensive through a breeder. Now she is out $500 and no bully to hold

    I'm just not a fan of Craigslist in general. I don't like the idea of meeting a complete stranger to buy/sell/trade anything, much less a puppy. I've got a co-worker that loves the site though.

    The bully I am rescuing was probably used to breed puppies for sale on Craig's List. When they stopped breeding her they turned her over to rescue. She's such a sweet little dog.

    I never use Craigslist for the same reason I wouldn't buy a puppy from Craigslist, It's either a scam or someone trying to get rid of damaged goods. Reputable, I don't think so. I don't think that anyone who sells a puppy on Craigslist has any respectability as a breeder
