this is such a biased topic both of my two dogs are adopted for free off craigslist and both are amazing and spoiled and loved another dog we had we had to get rid of due to him being not well trained yet as far as his aggression (chow/German Shepard mix) and we had a baby on the way we listed him as free to a good home and we still see him and his new owners at the dog park and text and trade pics regularly. Craigslist can be amazing its not all bad do research before you give your dog away go visit these people and see where they are going if it wasnt for “free to a good home” ads i wouldnt have a dog and i mean come on what would life be without a dog or 2 🙂
