How to Navigate Dog Classified 

Generally speaking, the classifieds are not the greatest place to search for dogs. Reputable breeders and animal shelters rarely use them, which means you’re more likely to find ads placed by puppy mills, backyard breeders, and

  scammers who post fake listings. Before you start, it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking for in a dog and what your other options are when it comes to finding sources. If you decide to look through classified ads, evaluate the seller first to determine whether they’re trustworthy. If so, be discriminating when reading the dog’s profile so you can identify any misleading or vague descriptions. Before you start skimming through classified ads, check whether it’s free to post listings or if a fee is charged to do so. Expect to find puppy mills, backyard breeders, and scammers advertising dogs on free sites. Remember: their chief concern is making money, so obviously they’re going to spend as little as possible and certainly take advantage of free advertising
