Scam / Fraud / Impostors Alert

Updated: May 10






Lately, we have been receiving a lot of comments on how scammers are using our pictures and videos to scam people. Some remove our watermarks, and some even use our watermark and claim that they are reseller or breeder we work with. 

We do not have a reseller nor our breeders have a direct line of sale to the retail channel. Due to such actions, we have decided to dedicate a page of our website to prevent these scam / fraud / impostors stealing from our clients.

We do NOT post our puppies on a dog-finder website, Craigslist and other local/regional classifieds.

If you come across one that you do not see on here, please report to us and we’ll make sure to add their information on here as well.

To protect yourself from the scammers, please make sure to check the following:

Make sure they accept secure transactions. Paypal friends & family, Paypal gift, Venmo, Xoom, Moneygram or Western Union is NOT a safe way to do a transaction. All the above method of payments is considered as giving someone else your hard earned money as a gift.

Do not send international wires to the destination where it does not match their company. If the company is based in the US, but the wire is to be sent to Nigeria, something is not right. Make sure that the account is a business account and not a personal account.

Make sure they are a legitimate business. Check their company incorporation or a business license.

Local craigslist or puppies for sale post. We do not post any of our puppies on local advertisement listings.

Websites selling puppies for $500-$1,000. Can be delivered personally to your door for $300. If the prices are too good to be true, it’s not true. Having to purchase all that is necessary for the puppy to travel cost well over $300, plus the plane ticket for the puppy puts minimum shipping price at around $500 for a direct flight. A lot more if it’s connecting flight. If someone is coming with the puppy, the math does not add up.

The destination that we do not deliver to, especially for Australia and New Zealand or Japan. There is very strict regulation for the delivery to certain countries. If one claims the puppy can be delivered in a very short time such as one week, it’s most likely a scam/fraud.

If you are a victim of Fraud/Scam, please contact your local consumer protection agency and submit a complaint to have them investigate the said company.
