I have been scammed while trying to buy a dog from a breeder online. I found this website while looking for my dream dog (mini dachshund) right away when I put in my info I was being contacted via email, and text. These people sent me pictures of the dog, the dogs parents, etc. When it came time for the dog to be shipped from TX to CO, they said that there was gonna be a stop in RI to drop off some other dogs. When my dog "arrived" to RI, we got a calling saying that the weather was too bad and the canceled the flight so she would be on a flight early the next day. The next day we got another call saying we had to give a additional $1700 for a crate so the dog could be shipped here, they tried to tell me that I would get the money back once we picked up the dog. I encourage anyone who wants to buy a dog online to go pick up the dog, and DONT make a large deposit before seeing the animal.
