    What are your view on line-bred dogs?

    My sibling dogs had a litter and now I'm being cussed out all over craigslist for it saying I'm worse than a backyard breeder etc. I didn't breed my dogs on purpose, but I had financial issues that resulted in me not being able to fix her in time. I sold the dogs for a small re-homing fee to cover food and vet costs. Is this really so appalling?

    Sorry but if you can't pay the vet, you shouldn't have the pet.
    It was immensely irresponsible to keep two intact dogs together..
    Sorry but no I have no patience for "whoopsie" breedings that could have been avoided with either adequate care or rehoming the animal(s) to homes that could afford vet care.

    Well, I didn't buy the dogs I moved in with a family who already had them...I am trying to find homes for them for free, but they keep flagging me because they had a litter basically out of my control because they weren't technically my dogs.

    Reading your OP is confusing, I thought you owned the dogs. Perhaps word your ad differently to clearly state that the puppies are not a result of your actions, that you are trying to right a wrong..? They may still be flagged. You may want to choose a different method to find them homes, such as through a rescue or even contacts through a vet or pet store.

    ETA - line breeding can be beneficial when done right by professionals. These are not "linebred" dogs, they are whoopsies due to carelessness and (sorry) stupidity on the owners' part.

    First you say they are yours then you say they were already there when you moved in? Also it I agree that you should have kept them seperated it really isnt that hard and while line breeding is not the worst thing it isn't a good thing amd yes can cause the pups tp havr problems possibly. Another thing is don't rehome on craigslist post somewhere else sucj as around your town in your local shelters or on other online sites, craigslist could be flagging you because they are free....

    The owner was a 71 yr old woman who has been in the hospital for 3 weeks 2 hrs away and is now being put in a home there so yes technically they are my dogs now and I'm trying to find them homes.

    Sh*t haps. Imo....Betina (BO where I work) has 2 males and 1 female (all intact) because she breeds them....but a neighbors dog got loose and got down and dirty with her dog so she ended up with a litter of pups...not her fault....it was the neighbors fault for not locking his dog up.


    I would def. Put up signs around vet clinics, animals helters etc. you would probably have better luck.

    Craigslist is most likely flagging you because your advertising free...if you even put $1 you may have more luck...but I would try locally first.

    Have you checked to see if there are any free or reduced spay/neuter clinics in your area? Would be a great idea to have that done ASAP. There are some organizations that will write small grants toward getting your dogs fixed too. Check to see if there are any near you. The Vet office is a great place to start. Give them the story of the old woman who is now going to a home and you need to find a place for the dogs, they might be able to help the dogs our or know someone who can. Good luck. Hopefully there will never again be a whoops. Too many dogs being killed in shelter every year many of which were whoops puppies.

    I would take the puppies to a rescue. They'll be able to find suitable homes for the puppies. I'd be a little wary selling puppies on craigslist.. people will take free or cheap dogs and use them for bait dogs, or turn around and breed them and just make more puppies that need homes. A rescue/humane society will also spay the puppies.
