Scammers & Sick Puppies
PLEASE, PLEASE be vigilant and on the LOOK OUT for the MANY scammers and ill-reputable breeders out there trying to steal money from innocent people and families.
BEWARE OF SCAMMERS
Look for a breeder with a valid Facebook Business page (with lots of history, not newly created) or even better a breeder with a website. Always have more than one FACETIME or VIDEO Chat with Breeder & Puppy so you can confirm the location/puppy environment is in the same place both time. This also allows you to see the environment The Puppy is being raised in.
PHONE CALLS AND VIDEOS can STILL be from a SCAMMER. You need 👀 on BOTH the PUPPY & BREEDER!
NEVER Send a deposit until you have had this face-to-face interaction with breeder and Puppy.👍 if they make excuses or keep rescheduling your video call with them AND then keep pushing you for a deposit, run the other way they are a scammer!
BEWARE OF BREEDERS SELLING SICK PUPPIES
The HEALTH of the puppy you receive is MORE important than getting scammed, here’s why:
I’ve been getting several messages from people saying they purchased a puppy from someone on Facebook and that puppy DIED within 24 to 48 hours after bringing it home. Puppy Pavo is absolutely crazy out there, especially by breeders that don’t prioritize the health of their pups.
-A weak or unhealthy puppy is going to be at higher risk of contracting and dying of Pavo very quickly.
-A healthy puppy can be exposed to Pavo and get sick, but if immediate veterinary care is given, they can be SAVED by the vet with IV fluids & meds. Look for breeders that offer a 72 hour health guarantee on your puppy.
PEOPLE are out there selling litters of puppies that are already exposed/sick with Pavo before you pick-up your puppy, frequently the puppies are under age, 5-7weeks old. The breeder may LIE and say the puppy is eight weeks old.
As soon as the breeder realizes their litter of puppies are getting sick, they sell them before they start showing symptoms and before they can die. Frequently they are sold at an extreme 'discount' (but not always!) In their sick minds any money they can get for the puppy before it dies is better than nothing.
Please share this information on as many puppy page, groups and platforms as you can. Spreading awareness of these issues will save many people from heartbreak…
