Hmm idk if i could call in adopting. i too found Mr.Beefy on craigslist well his owner found me. I posted an ad on CL looking for a deaf bully and the guy contacted me stating he didnt have a deaf one but he had one that needed a home. Recently divorced , working and going to school he said he did not have the time to care for a female he had and wanted her picked up that day. Well i couldnt since i was in GA at the time so he found another home. 3 weeks later he called and and said he has another bully this one a male that he would hold him until I could come take him home, he seemed very sincere and upset but understood that "bruitis" Mr.Beefy's old name needed more attention.
