    I really really wish I could reach through the computer and slap people! I placed an add for the pup that was dumped. He is about 5 months old. I have decided I am not going to keep him like we thought we would. I just have waaayyyy to much going on.

    The add I placed was something like...5 month old male red Aussie pup. Has had 3 puppy shots still needs rabies and neutered. I have gotten him up to weight and he is ready for his new home. He knows sit, down and has been on a leash a few times. I have started socialization and he is coming along well but will need more work. A home with older kids only. 75 but negotiable to the right home.

    I think I mentioned he shows interest in herding my goats.

    Well you posted in the right section. Try posting again under the same section (PETS). There are some people that have nothing better to do but flag ads. Sorry to hear about your ad being flagged. Probably some young kid with nothing else to do but flag ads. Try posting again and keep posting. They'll get tired of flagging.

    It's because you are not allowed to 'sell' pets on craigslist... you can advertise it for adoption with a 'rehoming fee'... just got to make sure you word it correctly

    Ya but are people really so stupid... the title was rescued Aussie pup ready for forever home.

    Editing to add: I am just getting burned out on rescueing. I have started thinking it may be more humane to just put the animals down than deal with idiots anymore.

    My understanding is that you can ask for an "adoption fee" in the Pets section. Mention that it is just to cover your expenses. If it is a working dog you can sell it in the farm and garden section like livestock. But you have to specify that too like, "This is a working dog not a pet".

    People may still flag it even still.

    You can sell animals on Craigslist. It just has to be farm animals and list them in the Farm section.
