Craigslist Ad: Lost and Found and Never Going Back

You may bump into this Craigslist ad in your internet travels – it’s proving rather popular. I’d love to high five the author, and would be even happier to take credit for writing it. Instead, I’m just going to read it a few more times and appreciate the sentiment.

You aren’t looking for them, but I found your 2 dogs

Sigh. No one is looking for these guys. And I see why.

They hump everything in sight, try to dominate our old doggies, try to
eat our cats and pee on everything and bark at everything. Neurotic,
lick constantly. They know no commands, either in English or Spanish.
They are aggressive and most likely lived in a puppy mill.

You dumped them, probably, and we picked them up before they were killed
by traffic. Unneutered, no tags, two small males under a year old.

I hate you, person who dumped these dogs.

There are no lost ads on phone poles, no lost ad on Craig’s list, no
lost ad in the paper.

We put signs up all over, put a found notice in at the local pounds. If
you were looking for these filthy little ragamuffins, you would have
found them.

We are afraid to take them to the pound because under stress, your dogs
were snappy and horribly afraid, and dogs are judged by temperament for
adoption placement. They would not have passed that test.

However…

They are, under their filth, mats and horrible habits, adorable.

They have learned “Quiet,” “Come,” “Sit.”

They have stopped being so neurotic and we have broken most of their bad
habits in just a few days.

They are smart and sweet and are looking for guidance and WANT to be
good little dogs.

One is a purebred little white and buff guy with an under bite, the
other is a brown little dog that looks almost exactly like a miniature
version of a larger breed dog. They know each other and were obviously
(by the same bad habits) raised (poorly) together.

We will get them neutered, train them and get them into a good, loving
home with people who use the brains God gave them.

If these are your dogs, come on by. Not so you can have them back. So I
can kick your ass.

  1. I love the piece & agree whole-heartedly with everything you wrote!!!
    Thank you for caring & giving these little guys a chance to change so if you’re not keeping them they can find a good loving forever home. And from the sounds of it hopefully they will be able to stay together!

    Thank you for not taking them to a pound & most likely to their death! It’s not their fault their humans let them down!! Again I say THANK YOU for being You & Caring!!
