Here are some comments about this person(s):
"It's interesting that these puppies that are located in YAKIMA COUNTY or within 30 miles of YAKIMA have phone numbers from DELAWARE, PASCO, WA & ABERDEEN WA and LAS VEGAS, NV.
*First of all if this person was honest and not a flipper she wouldn't be using so many different phone numbers, area codes and locations.
*Second, if she was an honest breeder she would be SELLING her puppies on her own website not trying to sell them on Craigslist under the guise of re homing.
*Third, she would not be posting the puppies numerous times a day. Sometimes deleting her own posts so she can re post and be at the top again and she would not have SO many different puppies.
*Last, if she wasn't a PUPPY FLIPPER she wouldn't have SO many different puppies posted daily. She has new puppies about every week.
Why doesn't she list her name and her real contact information? Who is she hiding from?
****BIG RED FLAG - FLIPPER/PUPPY MILL****
This YAKIMA PUPPY FLIPPER is the biggest flipper around. You can not believe any story she tries to spin. Many people are on to her now and flagging all her posts.
PLEASE HELP US TO FLAG THIS YAKIMA PUPPY FLIPPER OFF AND POST WARNINGS ABOUT HER!!"
" I live in Yakima... (Seattle Tacoma)
I live in Yakima and have seen the post about the flipper from the Yakima Puppy Mill. I am completely confused why anyone would consider buying a puppy from these people. Maybe it's easy to look on CL and meet a stranger at a Mall or Walmart but please consider this I know this girl Danielle has been breeding and selling puppies for several years I have seen her post in several cities it appears she has many people working with her. I personally have posted warnings 6 months ago when I saw she was over here. Here is the deal she usually has around 40 to 50 dogs a month she charges 250 to 500 per puppy. She often sells the poor Mama dog in Yakima for 25 to 50 dollars. She breeds everything and anything she can get her hands on, she has had Parvo in Yakima. If she does give shots now they are from a feed store so be careful.She has made her living doing this for sometime she has recently had a deaf husky mix and one that was vision impaired but fails to say that in her post. I have seen her post a ad and than switch it's breed and price. She is a criminal in every sense of the word ( trust me) If you are unsure if you are dealing with her call the phones it's a high pitch auto voice that says HI YOU HAVE REACHED .... I will tell you she has 90% of the puppies over here. Please don't support this mills our pet problem is caused from these individuals that just don't care. The pups suffer and people are getting scammed. Every time she sells a puppy it keeps her going to keep breeding and flipping. If you buy a pup you are supporting these individuals habits please get off CL and check out shelters, rescues, check Petsmart, Petco for puppies that really need to be adopted!"
Here are some tips if you are thinking about "adopting" a puppy on Craigslist or "rehoming" your pet on Craigslist:
You've probably heard of house flipping:
House flipping: Flipping is a term used primarily in the United States to describe purchasing a revenue-generating asset and quickly reselling (or "flipping") it for profit. Though flipping can apply to any asset, the term is most often applied to real estate.
But have you heard of dog flipping?
When someone steals or dog-naps a dog and then sells it, on Craigslist for example, to make a profit - that's dog flipping.
It's a problem that's growing in the Northwest, and there are some precautions you can take to make sure you're not a victim of a scam.
It happened in Monroe last year, when a teenage girl allegedly sold a 3-month-old puppy over Craigslist for $250. She was supposed to be puppy-sitting while the dog's owner was out of town. Fortunately, that story had a happy ending and the puppy was returned to her owner.
Before it's too late, here's how you can spot the signs, and protect your dog from becoming a victim of dog flipping:
Ask to come over and see the pet.
You should do this anyway, Seattle DogSpot's Robert Pregulman told It's Raining Cats & Dogs on KIRO Radio, but seeing how a dog interacts with an owner is important. They may not have had the dog for very long and it may seem particularly stand-offish or afraid.
Ask to see photos of the dog as a puppy.
If the person selling the dog owned the dog, they will probably have a cache of photos of their adorable pooch.Tell the prospective seller you'd like to take the dog to the vet and get them scanned for a microchip.
The IRCAD crew agrees that a reliable, or aboveboard person that's trying to sell a dog on Craigslist won't have a problem with this request. If the person has stolen the dog, they won't like the idea, and that will raise one of the biggest red flags. If the dog has a microchip, the vet will find it.Ask for veterinary records.
If you're adopting a dog from someone who has owned the pet for some time, they should have records of vet visits.Be sure to Microchip your pet.
Microchipping your pet means that if they fall into the hands of someone hoping to dog flip them, they will be more easily returned to you.Don't leave your dog unattended.
Dogs have been reported stolen when tied up on a bike rack outside of a bar, near a grocery store when an owner is running errands - and the scariest, from your own backyard. If you can ever help it, don't leave your dog outside by herself.
If you think you've found someone that's trying to flip a dog, you can check with shelters and the Humane Society in your community for updated lists on lost pets. If someone's dog has been stolen, they're probably looking for it. Many local vets will keep updated lists of lost pets on their sites too, and you can use these resources to help reunite pets with their dog-moms and dog-dads.
So all in all be careful when trying to find a puppy on Craigslist and/or rehoming your beloved pet. Craigslist attracts some shady people so do your research and please do not trust anyone. Just cause someone as a sob story or a inviting smile does not make them a good person......
