    Does anyone see any reason why my add should be flagged on craigslist? I am listing it under the pets section. It has been flagged at least 5 times now. I added pics of the puppies and of the parents. They are all fat and healthy. I'm thinking its just because they have nothing else better to do or that they are dobe mixes. Just like the pits, they have bad reputations. My dobes are the sweetest dogs I have ever had, they don't even bark at strangers. [​IMG]


    I have 4 females and 2 male puppies born on 9/21/09. Mom is a bulldog/chow mix, dad is full blooded doberman. Parents are both sweet tempered, nothing aggressive about them. They have been wormed but haven't had first shots yet. I'm asking a small re homing fee of $10. Email me with any questions and I can email more pics if interested. Thanks!

    There are a ton of self proclamed animal rights people on there that are "better than everyone". Try listing them as chow mixes or bulldog mixes? Try rewording it. I have had similar issues lately in the farm section.

    A lot of animal rights nuts hate to see any puppy ads so they flag them just because they can. [​IMG]

    Yeah the flagging in the pet section around here has gotten insane too. On top of it people keep posting long rants about how no - one should ever give up their dog or cat if they have lost their job etc.

    I agree - just post mixed breed puppies and let the people interested in them inquire about what breeds.

    I do believe that people flag them simply because they can, and this is probably the best way for you to find homes for the pups. There's alot of dog fighting going on lately and this may be why you're getting flagged, because of the breeds of these pups. Hopefully you can find enough people to take these pups. And I'm not bashing you at all for your dog getting pregnant, I'm not, I myself know how expensive it is to get animals fixed. I've done it for my 2 cats and my 2 beagles. It's not cheap by any means.

    Maybe you should ask a higher rehoming fee to set off the fee of getting your dog fixed....
