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. Although here it's still kijiji, but ya Diesel came from there. Would I buy a puppy from a 'breeder' from kijiji/craigslist? Probably not, but it would depend on the rest of the breeder, not just advertising choices.

I voted for cake I am not against craig's list or kijiji. But I am not likely to get a dog where I don't know the breeding or history.

Cajun was found through Craigslist. SSo yes I guess lol.

Personally I prefer breeders though so for my own dog I'd probably never think to look on CL.

^ 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.
