i pretty much hate craigslist. so many animals are bought and sold through that website without care or worry for the animal’s welfare. ‘unnamed puppy’ is just another case in a long line of maltreatment. this puppy was brought to us because the daughter bought it on craigslist. CLEARLY the puppy is too young and never should have been taken from it’s mom. we guessed the puppy’s age to be around 3 to 4 weeks. puppy’s should stay with mom, ideally, until 8 weeks of age. next they lied. they said, “it was 1 of 15 puppies in a litter from a chihuahua mix mom.” no chihuahua mix has EVER birthed 15 puppies – it would die. at this age, it is difficult to tell but our suspicion is that it is a pitbull mix. it will be easier to confirm/deny as it ages.
this little girl was only with us for 8 hours before we got her directly into foster care. i managed to snap a bottle feeding picture. she’s does have big bright beautiful eyes, and looks very healthy.
please do not ever purchase animals or try and sell animals on craigslist. it is such a red flag for so many reasons. peace.
