My friend today sent me a link to a cute Chihuahua puppy. Here is how the ad read:
Funny thing is it is listed under the name of a store not far from me that does dog grooming, sells dog stuff and SELLS PUPPIES! The sign in front of there store from time to time does say "PUPPIES" on it.
So, I called and played stupid. I asked about the puppy, how they got the puppy, asked how I would go about seeing the puppy, what did I have to do to "adopt" it... application?
I was told that the puppy was given to them because the person that had it feel ill and couldn't care of it any more. The puppy is up to date on shots and wormed.
I asked if the dog was fixed. The person said NO. I said do you get it fixed or do I. And the person said it was totally up to me if I wanted to get the puppy fixed or not. I asked if I had to sign an agreement, the person said NO.
The person told me that they accept cash only because they aren't a business or anything??? HUH? I said I had to talk to my husband and I would call back. The person said that I could leave a message and whenever we could meet up, I could have the puppy. They did have someone else who wanted the puppy on Friday evening but if I got there first I could have the puppy.
WOW! You don't care if I have other dogs, a fence, owned a dog before? WOW! SCAM screamed out to me.... but how many other people have BOUGHT a puppy from this place thinking they were doing a good thing??
And what is sick I know 5 other "rescues" who do the same thing......
