Would and did!

Fergus is off of Craigslist. Honestly, any dog I don't get from a breeder has a high chance of coming from Craigslist, that way I don't have to go through a rescue or shelter.

I wouldn't get *any* dog off Craigslist, but I would get *a* dog off Craigslist.

^ this.

I'd be just as likely to adopt off of Craigslist as I would a shelter. Maybe even more so than a shelter, because no contracts and has been in a home environment so things like being housebroken, crate trained, scared of storms, etc., etc. are all known.

You can get a good dog from anywhere. That said, I'm probably not looking on craigslist for my next dog, so chances are i won't.

I did (Riff) and got kind of burned, so I'm a little leery of doing it again. I don't think they were forthright with me and had I really known what I was getting, I don't think I would've taken him. Don't get me wrong, I love him and now he'll forever be my little dude, but he's not what I was looking for.

I guess I would do it again, but I'd be a lot more stringent with it. Tons of probing questions & a contract of some sort that they'd take the dog back (to keep or rehome again) if it was a horrible fit.

Bailey is technically from craigslist. Kinda lol

A rescue friend gave me her former owners contact info before she came into the rescue. She also told me she had an ad on craigslist. I looked up the ad before e-mailing. I e-mailed and called, and even though I couldn't go see her until that following Friday, she took the ad down and "held" her for me
