Do Not Post Your Dog on Craigslist as 'Free to Good Home' - Dog Flipper is Reselling Your Dog


This is what someone posted on Craigslist:

BEWARE : DOG FLIPPER !!! Help me find my dog please !!! (TOWSON)

If you are trying to re-home your dog, DO NOT give it to a black guy named Jay !! He is a dog flipper !!

I had my dog on Craigslist and this guy gave me a believable story so I allowed him to take my dog with the knowledge he could bring him back if things didn't work out. He came and got the dog at 9 pm on Tuesday evening. Wednesday evening I was scrolling thru the pet ads and saw an ad with a picture of my dog !! I opened the ad and sure enough it was his name (Jay) and his same phone number show contact info . I was furious to say the least. Obviously he only took my dog because he was free and wanted to make money on him. So I emailed him anonymously inquiring about the dog...no response. I also texted him from a different number inquiring about the dog...no response. The next morning I get a text from a strange number asking if I was missing a dog. Well this guy said he adopted the dog but the dog was scared and got out of the collar and ran away. No, it was a friend of Jay's just telling me that so I would think the dog was gone.

Jay told me before getting the dog that his girlfriend took his dog, a Yorkie, and then they split up and he told her to keep the dog that he would get himself another. He even sent me a video of him teaching the dog to rollover. He also told me he was moving back to Florida with his mother.

In his ad for my dog, it was a different story. He said he was in the military and was being deployed to Korea and couldn't take the dog.

My dog's name is Tucker. Jay said in his ad the dog's name was Cane...not. He is a Standard Rat Terrier. He is predominantly white with black spots. He is wearing a blue collar and his toenails are very long.

If anyone has adopted my dog, or knows his whereabouts, I would so very much appreciate any information you may have. I want to get my dog back and find him a decent, loving home...not with some dog flipper that doesn't care about Tucker's welfare !!

Below is the original Craigslist ad that I copied from. Ads on Craigslist stay up for approximately one week, so it may no longer be active.
