Mypeekapoos.com aka Cameo Kennels aka Amy McCrary / Puppy
In November 2015 I saw on her website that she was expecting a litter of peekapoos in December 2015. I called her, and she sounded legit, so I sent her a $500 deposit via my credit card. In Dec. I was told it was a false pregnancy but she had another dog in heat and had already bred her. I called in February to see how the dog was and she said the dog was possibly pregnant and would be due March 1. In March, she stopped answering my calls. I finally called her on a different cell and she picked up. She told me there were no puppies, but had 2 other dogs pregnant, however, she was too busy to talk that I should email her. I did email her and she finally emailed back saying that both dogs were due in May. In May, I saw on her website she was advertising a litter of puppies for sale, I called, no answer. So I used yet another cell and she answered, yes, puppies were just born. I picked out a female puppy, and was excited and happy. 3 days later I get an email from her that the puppy died, - yes after 6 months an email that your puppy died - BUT she was expecting yet another litter soon. After being baited for 6 months I realized there was never going to be a puppy and my gut feeling was right. I contacted my credit card company and luckily got my deposit back since she couldn't produce/deliver a puppy. What I learned: 1. A good legitimate breeder will put you on a waiting list without taking a deposit, 2. Only takes your deposit after you see pictures and pick out your puppy, and 3. Takes your phone calls and is never too busy to talk to you - this is their business. Happily, I finally did get a puppy from a breeder in WV. They're not all scammers.
