D4D: Dogs Looking For Missed Connections on Craigslist

We Said Hello At the New Dog-Friendly Cafe

Our humans were sitting at adjacent tables on the patio and we all said hello briefly. You seemed like a cool young pup, and I’d like to get to know you better. I hear a new dog park is opening up with a built-in agility course. Want to check it out?

Size Isn’t Everything

Remember all the fun we used to have wrestling and playing at the dog park? I know everyone said it would never work because we were just too different, but we always had such a good time. Get in touch if you want to play a one-sided game of tug-of-war for old time’s sake.

Let’s Make a Splash

I’ve noticed you walking through the park. I like a pooch who takes time to smell the roses — or in this case, the trees. I’m the cute corgi who usually hangs out by the fountain to cool off. Why don’t you come over and say hello?

Pet Store Meeting

We ran into each other at the pet store and I ran away from you. Sorry about that! I just got adopted and was a little overwhelmed. I’m looking forward to meeting other dogs and would love to try again, maybe at the dog park. What do you say? I’ll bring the tennis balls if you bring the frisbees.

Even dogs can have trouble making friends sometimes, but these “Missed Connections” ads are hard to resist! You can help shelter dogs make their own canine connections by wearing these pet-themed sports sandals on your next walk. Every pair purchased helps provide food for dogs in need.
