PostSubject: Siberian Husky Puppy in Arkansas?   Tue Apr 06, 2010 1:43 pm

So... I saw an ad in the Penny Saver... for a 3 month old Siberian Husky. My gut is uneasy about this... and it's probably best not to get it. Before I go on.. I'll copy and paste my emails with this guy. After reading... let me know what you think...

=========

Hello,

We saw your ad, can you give me more information about the puppy?

This was the ad I saw:
http://www.pennysaverusa.com/category/merchandise-animals-pets-dogs-husky/region/w-us-ca-tulare-tulare-93274/blue-eyes-siberian-husky-puppies-for-homes-17834226.html

==============

Hi there,
Thanks for the mail and the interest in my baby puppies.
they are both males and females.they are still available and ready to
go.Spectacular pure breed AKC registered with all shots,vaccines and
vet records updated.In placing my puppies out for adoption,I am looking for
reasonable,knowledgeable and cautious person who can offer them
tenderness,nursery with lots of love kisses and hugs....I am not giving
them out for sale.they are up for adoption..These adorable,cute and
gorgeous puppies are 12 weeks old and would be the perfect match for
you.they will be the best playmate you've ever dream of.With their
great personality and good temperaments with kids and other pets,they
would be the one to steal your soul.they would be coming along with
their vet records,and all their KC registration papers attached to
their package with lots of play toys.You have nothing to worry about
because i will also enclose their hand book and feeding menu to their
package ok.Promise me that you would shower him/her with lots of TLC.
And i would never like that my baby should end up in a shelter or
rescue.,feel free to mail me.If you are willing to get him/her,please
e-mail me asap so that i would stop all other contacts .If you have
any more question to ask i will answer you truthfully and faithfully
........I would like to ask you some few questions if you do not mind.
1...Are you a breeder??
2...have you been keeping pets??
3...Do you have kids at home?
4....Are you going to keep him/her or give her to someone?
5....Where are you located precisely?
6....Which sex do you need?
Awaiting your kind response

=============

Hello,
Thanks for replying! I can't believe they are up for adoption, we really love huskies! Our 10 year old Rocky passed away last February. :( He is missed a lot. Before him, our 12 year old lab mix had also passed away.

We live in Tulare, we live by the new Paseo del Lago park. The ad said you were located in Tulare as well. I'm interested in seeing the puppies, mainly interested in a boy.

To answer your questions:
1...Are you a breeder?? No
2...have you been keeping pets?? We were owners of a lab mix & siberian husky, both passed away.
3...Do you have kids at home? No kids at home
4....Are you going to keep him/her or give her to someone? We want to keep him for ourselves
5....Where are you located precisely? in Tulare, CA
6....Which sex do you need? Male

================

Hello there,

Thanks for the prompt reply.I must say i am very happy for the fact that you really want to provide this babe dog with the best forever home that the baby dog needs.As for my location, presently at the moment i am in Arkansan so i am here with this babe dogs. But that not withstanding,if you can come down for the pick up then i will be very happy to let you have the babe dog but if otherwise then i can still used an alternative by using A Pet Delivery Service that will get the baby dog to you at your door step and all you will pay is just the $250 and nothing more for i really need a re/home for this babe dog for i got no time to provide the babe dog with the best forever home that they need at the moment o.k. So if you need me to ship and deliver the baby dog then i will be very happy to do that when ever you have the permission to get the baby dog home.And once i am done with the registration at the shipment agency,the shipment agency will have to contact you with all the delivery information as regard the the departure and the arrival time of the baby dog at your door step with all the papers included also with a travel crate.So all you shall be paying with shipment inclusive is $250 and you shall be paying this fee directly to the shipment agency because they will have to issue you with some documents like {Home delivery card,puppy crate matriculation number and a change of ownership documents from my names to yours to prove that you are the rightful owner of the baby dog.} So i will also need your details like
Full names.................
city..............................
house address...........
post code..................
contact numbers.......
So please i will be very grateful to hear from you soonest.
Thanks

===================

Hello Scot,

I didn't realize you were in Arkansas. I will have to get together with my brother about this and the soonest I can email you back is around 1pm my time. I will get back to you sooner if possible... I need to talk to him about the money first. Thanks

Is it possible for you to send me a picture of the dog?

=============

Hi there,

Attach to this mail are some pictures and hope you love it.



==============

He's 3 months old now isn't he? Do you have a more recent pic?

I'm sorry, I was a victim of a scam and learned a very costly and hard lesson a while back... so by nature I'm just over cautious...

=================

Hi there,

Yes he is 3months old,what do you mean by Scam? it is a puppy toy you will want me to send the pup with? please do let me know what is scam?

So i don't have any more recent pic of the pup

**********************************************************

Soooo.... what do you guys think? lol

It's strange that he wasn't catching on to "scam." I think I would be a little cautious. I would feel most comfortable purchasing a puppy from a breeder that has a website. When we got our dog, Libby, back in 1997, we bought her from a reputable breeder that we researched online.

Carol, here is the website of a breeder out of southern California. I guess that I wouldn't feel very comfortable buying a dog from someone who lives so far away, that isn't a breeder with a reputable website.

I found this California breeder as well.

I am from Arkansas and I promise NO ONE talks like that there. This stinks bad.....just keep looking, but not in "Arkansas."

It doesn't sound right to me, either. By his language he sounds like a foreigner and not from Arkansas at all!

Yeah, I don't think I would do it. It seems strange that the ad would be for Tulare, but he is in Arkansas. It is also strange that he can't give you a more recent picture. He doesn't know what a scam is? Perhaps he and the "shipping company" are the scam.

Not kosher at all Carol!! He talks like some bubbly teenager, or like Misti mentioned, a foreigner. He doesn't know what 'Scam' means?! OhMy That $250 will go straight to his pocket and you'll never see that puppy. I personally would not buy any dogs from breeders unless they're reputable. I prefer to adopt from shelters. Good luck in search of your Husky and I know how much you really love them. Love

It sounds pretty fishy. A pet delivery service is quite pricey. To deliver a pet all the way from Arkansas to California can range from $200-$350. It seems unlikely that the cost of such a long-distance delivery would be covered in the $250 price of the puppy. But if it's something you really want to look into, ask him for the puppy's AKC registration name and number. That would allow you to go to the AKC site, and do a little bit of digging by entering that number and finding out more about the dog, and possibly its location.

Personally, I think it's extremely unlikely that he's on the level.

Yep... the guy never did e-mail me back after he sent his last email asking me what a "scam" was... Huh?

Thanks Teresa for those links!

We'll either go with a husky or a lab... I'll see what happens...

I don't know how I missed this thread.....glad you're not going with this person Carol. It definitely smells funny to me too. You know, it wasn't that long ago I was at our Humane Society and there was a purebred younger Husky. You could always put your name on a waiting list for a Husky at your local shelter....we did that when we adopted Chelsey. Or, have you checked Petfinder.com?

I think i was just almost a Victim of a Scam lol Also with an Ad about dogs there was this ad for two Chih Puppies for Free it was hard to believe but i email them and she still had them but she said she lived in north Carolina her husband had died they had been his puppies so it made her to sad looking at the puppies she said all i would have to pay for is the flight to ship them to my place $220 for both but the wierd things i hadn't even told her in which country i live in so how would she know how much it would cost??? scratchead

So i will just not write her back might not be a Scam but i won't risk it.

Good call, Carol. It all does sound very fishy. Especially after reading that Jacob had a similar experience. I hope you find a puppy soon, Carol.
