They are all 13 weeks old, vet checked and vaccinated,
home and toilet trained and will be coming along with all their
necessary papers and 1year health guarantee and others like, eating
boll, pet blanket, play toy and food menu, they go along with other
home pets and love the company of kids mostly, very friendly and
socialize, they are very healthy, smart and playful,
We are looking for families (an individual is a family of one though)
who can commit to a forever home for the dogs, and seem to us to have
the right stuff to love our puppies. We claim the right to deny any
prospective person our puppies and will always choose the home we feel
is best for the puppies. Please do let me know the following:
-Do you have a vet center near by?
-Do you promise to give them all the
love and attention?-How soon do you need them?
-How many puppies will you be taking?
-Were precisely are you located???
-A proof that you will be able to take care of the puppies?
-Do you have space in your apartment for the dog to play around
?-How many of you live in your home?

kind of home my babies will be going to ok,
Immediately i get all that requested, I shall then determine the
family to give my puppies to. Your case will be treated immediately you

First he refused to tell me the agency he would use to ship the puppy. Then when I asked if I could see the puppy in person he told me that he was very busy and wouldn't be around. Those were immediate red flags and we told him that we didn't trust him. That's when I did a search for his email and got this thread.
