With that said…about Craigslist. When someone offers a dog for free to good home…DOES THAT PERSON giving the dog/pet away do a home check? Drive to that persons house, check for fencing/backyard,descent neighborhood, make sure dog will be living indoors and not out back chained up with little or no shelter? Do you call the Vet of the people interested in your pet? These are all the things you SHOULD do before giving your dog to someone else. Also have them sign a contract agreeing to the terms you would like to see. A warm bed, good food and lots of love. And FREE dogs alot of the time are used in dog fighting. these are horrific conditions and many dogs die or are ripped apart. i have seen many with their faces ripped off, or guts hanging out. Also people take them JUST to torture them. shove a shovel into their skull, burn them, drag them behind vehicles, poor acid on them, beat them with baseball bats. SEEN IT ALL and WORSE. THIS IS THE VERY REASON not to give your dog away. even if you give it away free..DO HOME and VET CHECKS. check them out thoroughly.
So all of you that are making really off the wall ignorant negative comments about this article..THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT!

Absolutely. This article is more of a warning to anyone offering their pet Free to a Good Home on Craigslist. It is a warning of what very often happens to dogs that are given away for free in classified ads.

The point, though, is not to attack good people that give good homes to dogs, it’s to point out the dangers of giving away a dog for free on Craigslist and assuming that the person you’re handing your beloved pet over to is a good person. Yes, many of us have found great dogs through classified ads, and many dogs have found loving homes that way, but giving away a free dog on Craigslist is essentially welcoming abusers, fighters, and murderers to take ownership of your dog. Best to take extra precautions when listing a dog to make sure he actually does end up in a loving forever home!
