Duke - Will be 1 year old on Jan. 3rd. Purebred, he has papers but I will not release them until you provide proof that you have had him neutered. I'll be happy to show his papers to you for proof though. Comes with nothing, up to date on shots. He is a BIG BOY and is still growing >100lbs! He is almost solid black with a dusting of tan on the back of his arms and legs. He is house and crate trained and very obedient. $150 re-homing fee to ensure a good home that can actually afford to take care of him. OR I will be happy to give him to you for free if you want to go ahead and get him neutered. =)PostingID: 2766673042
Lady - Turned 1 yr old on Nov. 23rd. Needs EXPERIENCED FOSTER home immediately! She had 3 male black and tan pups from Duke on Nov. 30th, they are not weaned yet and will need to stay with her until Jan 30th. The pups will not have papers but are purebred. They will need to be re-homed when the time comes, and Lady too. Lady is solid white, purebred, and she has papers as well. If you can provide references from a vet or shelter that you are an experienced foster, you can take all 4 of them at no cost.
I REALLY NEED THESE DOGS IN THEIR NEW HOME/FOSTER HOME ASAP, I CAN NO LONGER AFFORD FOOD FOR THEM AND THEY HAVE A FEW DAYS WORTH LEFT!!!
Right now these dogs are not able to be cared for properly and I am not home most of the time anymore. It breaks my heart to do this but I know it is the right thing to do. In ignorance I got in way over my head with this. PLEASE HELP THEM!
I can text pics of Duke, Lady and the pups upon request.

Black German Shepherd (Landis)

I have a 1 year old black German Shepherd weighing in at 125 lbs. He has all his shot records. He has maxxed out the weight limit in my townhome and I have to get rid of him--I hate to but he must go. Here are my guidelines for you if you're interested. I will require a 50 dollar rehoming fee. I want to prefer that the owner had experience with handling large breeeds such as the German Shepherd. It is a work dog and loves to learn new things. If he's not learning then he will perform bad habits. He will neeed a large yard or open field to stretch himself several times a week. I would prefer not to make him a stud dog. He's a great indoor dog, named Wesley. He obeys basis commands--learns very fast. Call or text me 7o4-93o-1186 ask for Sean. I don't respond to emails because of spam....

|LadyFrost, is there possibly a 'pet pantry' being operated by a shelter or rescue group in the Greenville area that might be at least able to provide food for the dogs in the first listing, since that seems to be the most pressing issue at the moment?|
by LadyFrost on 26 December 2011 - 14:01
|hexe...I had forwarded this listing to someone I know in large breed rescue, hopefully they will follow up with owner.|
I am contemplating on going and seeing the conditions of dogs and housing, it will depend on response from the owner...but i know i wont be able to take them all....

|<sigh>...and people wonder why they get such a frosty reception when they join here and tell us how they're going to breed their bitch or stud out their male because they're such exceptional examples of the breed, and the world needs more poorly-planned litters. |
That's why I erased my reply to the person who posted on here the other day to ask about the pedigree of his dogs, because he was planning on breeding two of them--except he'd already bred them once, and the pups were now 7 months old according to the ad he posted here. I simply couldn't find a nice way to say, "Maybe you should have done that research BEFORE you bought the dogs, let alone bred them, dumbass....". Another checkbook breeder...and apparently a Kraftwerk buyer, too, so we know his checkbook took a hit for the dogs he bought. Yet it seems he knows nothing about what he bought.
I hope the rescue will be able to pick up the pieces with that first listing. As for Wesley, I'd damn sure move before I'd get rid of my dog just because he outgrew the "weight limit"!
It's just too, too depressing.

If there is a way to get them to me in Michigan I would take them. We would insure all were altered and in proper homes.

Check with the "German Shepherd Forum"-they have a list of volunteers to assist in transport of Shepherds throughout the US.
Also many other groups listed online that transport.

**update** the boy found his home today, the 2 little girls are still here needing loving homes!!
These poor babies were dumped in our ditch last night with all of their feet tied together.
We took them to our vet this morning, they're healthy as can be but a bit underweight.
We've gotten their bellies full & a booster shot for them.. I'm not concerned about adoption fees they need loving homes asap!
The only pen we have is muddy and not a good place for a dog at all.
They're thought to be 4-6 months old and possible german shepherd lab mixes.. they're all amazingly sweet!
We have 3, one little boy and 2 girls.
The girls want to be petted and loved and the boy loves to play!
If you can provide a good home for one of these pups call me or text me.
My # is 843 277 4539
Thanks for reading!
I really want to get them out of this pen as soon as I can.. but I will bathe them before going to new homes regardless.

|This is the reason why I don't look at the dogs on craigslist pets section....|
Tied the dogs together and put in a ditch...sick f*cks.

|We had a case inland of a lady and her daughter that used rubber bands around the pups' snouts to keep them from barking at night so the people could sleep and wondered why they got nailed for cruelty (thank goodness a concerned visitor turned them in). They also got nailed for doing this once before when the band became embedded in their previous dog's snout. Somehow they managed to get two new dogs to breed for "Christmas puppies". [eye roll, shake head, walk away grumbling].|

|Good Morning to all ; I would like to offer an opinion here. I happen to have and work a 15-month old female German Shepherd that I got off craigslist in the Fla./Ga. area. She has gained a few pounds since I've had her. I bought her the first part of this year. BEST money I ever spent. So in closing, It's not about the animals on craigslist, I see it as being about some of the (*^*^%@%) people who call themself dog owners. I think the ones who mis-treat the dogs need to be treated in the same manner.|

|People might be really surprised if they knew some of the breeding that was behind some of these "craigslist" dogs (or similar type ad boards/pages).|
In our region alone, there are several stud dog owners that breed their coveted highly titled/surveyed males to anything that will back up to them, stud fee in hand first of course. There are some dogs in everyones "back yard" that came from some pretty good dogs on paper...
Not saying thats where one should look for a well bred prospect for work etc. just commenting on our experiences. Recently there was an registered 8yr old SchH3 male GSD advertised on CL as needing a home. The ad was forwarded to us by other dog friends, all in an effort to find a seemingly nice dog a home.
Lots of breedings get done when people buy sons and daughters from well bred titled/koerd dogs, then in turn breed those dogs. You end up with 2 or 3 generations of untitled/unhealthtested progeny..but it can be interesting to see what is behind those dogs a couple generations back. You also can find titled sire/untitled dam puppies etc. It will amaze you what is out there sometimes.

Nala is a10 month old female German shepherd. We took her from a lady who was moving to Texas and was going to take nala to a high kill shelter. Nala is a very smart dog and know commands like sit, stay, lay down, and size. She is housetrained and will stay in a crate but she just lays on our couch at night. She is a very laid back dog. We took her to get all of her shots and she is on Comfortis and has 5 more months of her heartworm preventative. She was groomed yesterday and is looking great. She is also very loving with our 5lb Chihuahua. If you are interested in giving nala a home you can email me back or text me at 864-508-2110. She will only go to a home where she can be inside.

|I picked up my Slovak import on CL. I hate to say it this way but you can find some great deals on CL for dogs. You really have to know what your looking for and be willing to walk away. Risk is big since most times dogs are not tested. Some people just dont know what they really have. Some just buy dogs because they are expensive and are "imported" Never have a clue that the dog needs training and a job to do. Sells when the dog starts digging up the yard and barking.|
