Hello,
Thanks for the interest you have for my puppy and also thanks for the mail. So I quite appreciated your interest on your proposing in purchasing my puppy. She is still very much available for adoption. She is 12 weeks old, This puppy health is OK!, 1st shots, AKC registered, Baby is so animated and will keep you entertained for hours. She really had her own distinct personality. Loving and very affectionate personalities are standard with other animals. She is very affectionate and like to give kisses all the time.

This female pup presently weighs about 2.3lb so i live here in Florida(USA) with the baby and i really need a lovely home for my baby that is why am adopting her back to the state, I love to take care of her myself due to the problem i am facing, so i don't have much money to take care of her the way i want that is why i am looking for God fairing person and i caring person that will take good care of my puppy the way i want.

So if you are interested in having the puppy, i want you to get back to me with your full name, address, phone number including the nearest airport to you. Please if you know that you are not going to take very good care of my baby, do not reply me because is not that i didn't have time to care take of her but i am only giving this puppy out due to my bad condition and i don't want something harmful to happen to the puppy .So she is priceless therefore she will be going for free, so i will like you to get back to me with your Full Name and Full Address including your Nearest Airport with your Phone number so that we proceed with the adoption process and also find out shipping cost, I want you to know that you are paying for the shipping cost..so get back a to me asap so that we can get back to you with the shipping cost..

Best Regards. Thanks

    You are 110% dealing with a scammer!!! Do not fall for it!!! The following reasons are indicative of a scammer:
    1. The way they are writing and the words they are using. I've seen those same words written over & over again. I've seen that same story many times written almost exactly the same way.
    2. When they ask for your name, address, and phone number. Every scammer does this.
    3. Selling an expensive dog for free and then all of a sudden they need money for shipping.
    4. They want you to go to western union and wire money. That way, you will not have any information on the party that receives the money and they will be long gone and you won't be able to do anything about it.

    I'm sorry, but follow your gut. You already know what you are dealing with.
