Is there any other way to find a birddog besides the craigslist?
I use local Facebook groups and REI meetups for my area. If you have those in your area, there are probably good connections that can be made to help you grow your business and theirs!
The majority of birddogs will come from your circle, everyone I know is aware that I am an investor so they often bring me deals. In the past I also met new investors at REIAs who would bring me deals.
Keep growing your network.
