There are just some dumb people out there. She went from beautiful to mutt just because Craigslist was mentioned.

I was always skeptical of Craigslist, but this is how we found our puppy. While there may be sketchy people on it, we used our common sense and best judgement to decide if we wanted to purchase from our breeder. Turns out, our breeder was the most kind and caring GR breeder we could find. We were lucky and you were too.

If I were in your situation, I'm not so sure I could handle it with grace. If random stranger said anything negative about our girl, I would knock them out.

Even if you did get your pup from a byb so what. You're free to do whatever you want with your money and buy your pup from wherever and whomever you choose.

Some people need to mind their own da** business!

"Don't you know how many dogs end up in shelters?" "Her pedigree probably isn't good, she might even be a mutt". I know what she said was wrong and I still love Kiki no matter what but I can't help but feel a little ashamed after such a scolding.
Where does that idiot think the unsold Craiglist dogs from private owners end up?! This woman's statements are clearly confusing! Get from a shelter and your dog might be a mutt?! Most dogs in shelters are mutts.

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)
