Dog flipping on Craigslist and Facebook
This is what happened to lady who's a member of a group Im on, dog flippers are using craigslist and facebook all the time taking free dogs/puppies and then selling them on for $'s
This happened to me Sunday! Determined to not let this awful woman get away with it.
I am 7 months pregnant, I have a 7yr old daughter and we are moving into a new home next week. After long hard contemplation we decided to re-home our Chihuahua Munchie. 4yrs old fawn. We posted an ad on Craigslist last Saturday April 21st, 2012. I got plenty of responses, but I wanted him to go to a home with kids and a family that would love him. She told me it was for her daughter's birthday and they would love him. I spoke to her via email (I still have these) then finally gave her a call (also have text messages). I told her we would meet at a neutral place later in the day. I took Munchie to get an up to date rabies shot, his nails cut a bath for his big day. I feel horrible now! She brought her kids with her and we met at a neutral location. The kids played with him. They looked happy. We asked could we stay in touch, and she agreed. I even checked on him later that evening, she said he was fine. By the 22nd this evil woman had our dog for sale. He looks so scared in the pictures. I called her and asked her about why the ad was up and she said she had no knowledge of it and she still had the dog. I told her I would flag the ad and start an investigation because I felt uncomfortable. She had things in the ad no one else would know. I feel terrible that this has happened. I have spoken to a reporter and I am planning to have my friends buy the dog back and record it all.
