Well maybe not a scam as I am sure a dog would arrive for money exchanged, but I am suspicious of the truthfulness of the situation as presented. Here are the details:
A few weeks ago I came across an add for a WPG. There are absolutely no breeders anywhere near me so I was curious and inquired, dog was sold, seller claims it is a fantastic pup but was an alpha dog and they already had an alpha dog griffon as the reason for selling, which seemed a little suspicious but what do I know.
A few weeks later they have another pup for sale says a friend bought a griff pup and it just got in from the states yesterday. Owners found out they were pregnant day dog arrived and cannot keep it, fantastic blood lines, super pup, potential as a stud dog, must go to hunting family etc all contact info for same seller as last time. I asked for details, sent numerous pictures of a cute puppy and parents pedigree No info on who breeder is, hips, testing etc. I look up dam, she tested no prize and prize three in NAVHDA NA and would have been just barely two years old at time of breeding, Owner of dam does not show up on any searches for breeders. I find registry of sire, but no testing records, also a young dog but from a known kennel. Owner of dam does not show up on any searches for breeders.
So through this my scam sensors are going off, I am suspecting they are bringing in pups, attaching a story to them and selling them off as a chance in a lifetime act now situation. Asking price is $1600.
Curious what your thoughts on this would be or if you have heard of this before, maybe I am overly suspicious in this age of the internet.
