Default I'll admit it, I'm a Craigslist flagger...here's a gem...

I routinely scan the pet section of Craigslist and I probably shouldn't because I usually end up flagging a lot of posts .

Here's one that just got my blood boiling more than usual...I mean COME ON

Quote:
Boxer Mix puppies Fawn, Brindle, Dark Fawn and White to good home.

Please come by and visit with the little guys, they love kids.

These little guys are specially trained to watch over military spouse while active duty deployed.

808-***-**** Please leave message during duty hours.
Bolding mine. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!! There happens to be a LOT of military on Oahu, it just really p*sses me off that these stupid people are playing a deployment card for their careless and ignorant breeding. Do they think people are stupid?

The sad thing is, no amount of conversation will convince them that they've just created more dogs (something this little island REALLY doesn't need) that may be cute but have NO special ANYTHING about them. I hope they can find homes...based on the pic there are at least 7 puppies.

Here's a link, please flag if you can: Boxer Mix Puppies

They're such pretty pups. As for the owners, are you serious??? "These little guys are specially trained to watch over military spouse while active duty deployed." What a load of BS.

How do you know it's BS? Half the people here think their lap dog will protect them. It's ok here but someone else thinking their dogs will protect are wrong?

I've seen one on CL that said accidental litter both the mother dog and father dog are here. I sent them an email saying I guess you accidentally forgot to spay and neuter the dogs also due to a brain fart. Accidentally asking $150 fee and the pups were not even to the vet yet.

I know my dog wont protect me from anyone. Someone can break in and she would be wagging her tail wanting the person to pet her. She does not even alert bark when someone is at the door.

Many people here insist that their dogs will protect them. Misguided as that may be, it is accepted by the other members because they are in the Chaz club. Someone unknown thinks the same thing about their pups, tries to use it as a selling point, misguided as it may be, and they are torn a new one. A little bit of a double standard.

You didn't get your dog because someone told you she's a good protector, so you'd have no reason to expect that from her.

As far as the CL "rehoming fee", that's just a PC phrase for "here's what I'm charging".

I just arrived home on Saturday with the sweetest little thing(male). I am a huge dog-lover, having lost my cock-a-poo in May I decided to get another. However, my lifestyle does not support taking care of him, since I travel a great deal. He is affectionate, no signs of separation anxiety, wee-wee pad trained, has up to date shots, and is just perfect! I paid 1440.00 from Raising Rover on Lexington Ave. The owner has a fabulous reputation and plenty of years in business. Many of my friends have purchased their puppies from him and I did the same. Need him to go to a loving home. Call me for price.

So this person buys a dog 3 days ago from a pet store and now wants to find a home for it.

Oh come ON! There's a big difference between someone who already owns a dog that claims it will protect them. Big deal. I've seen a lot of "lap" dogs go ballistic over their owners. That's a form of protection.

However, claiming that PUPPIES have been trained to protect a DEPLOYED MEMBER'S SPOUSE (not anyone else, mind you), is an obvious load. Since I'm the OP of the ad and I don't even own a lap dog, I stand by my claim that it's BS.

I find that a bit condescending, as if you believe since you train with your dog for such work you have the market cornered on a dog that WILL protect when needed.

I can agree that nobody knows if their dog will protect until a REAL situation appears.........and yes, that includes dogs who train for the job.

I have a 75lb doberman, I have NO IDEA if he would protect me if needed.......I like to think he would, but we've never really been in the position.

On the other hand, we also have a 38lb border mix that has PROVEN she will. Laid back, no protection training, and friendly as they come to EVERYONE she meets.........but she HAS put herself between me and danger and lunged for the bite. I never even DREAMED she would be a protector. Go figure huh?

Gotta say I am agreeing with mommakatx on that one. It is a ridiculous claim for ANYONE to make when trying to rehome, sell, or give away PUPPIES.

If they had said "potential ability" based on parents? I might have bought that one. Not pups already "SPECIALLY TRAINED" <-----exact words used> and now they are being REHOMED on craig's list? Who puts that kind of time and training into a PUPPY to rehome on CL? Nope..........don't buy it at all.
