Yorkies on Craigslist

I've been watching the Tulsa Craigslist Pet section and lately I've noticed that EVERY ad for a yorkie gets flagged whether they're looking for one, or looking to rehome. Even when all the rules are followed and the rehoming fee is reasonable. Anyone got any idea why?

Many of these ads are looking to buy or sell dogs, which is not allowed on Craigslist. It is possible that the person flagging the ads knows more about the individual posting than is revealed in the post. Many people on Craigslist are 'dog flippers' who will take a dog for a low fee, and post it for a higher fee the next week. Yorkies are frequent victims.

If you are in Tulsa and looking for a yorkie, try Oklahoma yorkie rescue.

Ditto to the last answer. Many of the dog ads on Craiglist are from back-yard breeders.
