Small dog for sale

Do you have a small dog that needs a new home? These stubby-legged, cuddly snouts will find you a new one on Craigslist.


Abusers who acquire animals on Craigslist have gone to great lengths, including taking children with them, to appear trustworthy and trick guardians into giving them their animal companions. Once you hand an animal over, the situation is out of your control, and there’s no way for you to know what may happen. These cases are proof that no matter how desperate you are, you should never resort to giving away an animal to someone you don’t know and trust.

“Look – I have warned people about the very real and significant dangers of trying to sell or adopt pets through Craigslist. Scammers get dogs for free or cheap from unsuspecting owners, and then charge exorbitant fees to adopt them to others as “rescues.” Or worse, hoard or abuse them.

If you’ve ever browsed Craigslist, you’ve likely seen ads offering animals “free to a good home” or for sale via a “re-homing” fee. These ads, commonly seen in the “pets” section of Craigslist, on Facebook community pages, or in the classified section of newspapers, have proved to be extremely dangerous—and in some cases, deadly—to animals. Although Craigslist prohibits the sale of animals on its site, it still allows animals to be given away for free or via a small “re-homing” fee.

Facebook also added a mechanism for users to report ads for puppies and other animals for sale – but users take evasive actions, such as listing their puppies for sale on “discussion” boards, rather than on the page for “items for sale.” The task of flagging these ads is just like it is at Craigslist: a bit like playing “whack-a-mole.”
