These details are correct as of today (July 14, 2017) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card. was registered using the email address [email protected].
It was registered 1 month and 1 days ago on June 13, 2017  and expires June 13, 2018.

  1. I bought a puppy from this website. A little rottweiler named appollo. I made it clear to the breeder id have the dog for my health. I was ready to register it as a service dog. Now i have heart problems and could die if something goes wrong. We wired money to this man for a service dog that never came. My boyfriend and i were absolutely crushed. I want to warn people but i also what this to end now. We should advocate with law enforcment and fight to get ohr money back. For anyone buying a dog please know that when you transport your animal there is NO insurance fee that is required!!! Scam websites with tell you there is please please please do not put yourself in danger like i did trying to buy this animal. This man is an awful person. This man scammed a 17 year old.

  2. They now go by another name Star Puppy Shop with a phone number 501.588.1928 out of Little Rock, AK and the gentleman I spoke to was named Mark. On this website it states the owners are Hellen and Albert Summer but I called the AKC Operations Center and they had no listed with the owners name, the website name or the phone number. Glad I did my homework too, although the payment through Western Union was a big tip off that this might not be real.

  3. they now have a website called they tried scamming me. called me from 67-997-4401 thank god I looked into the number because my instinct told me something was wrong and I was right. He has now emailed me threatening me but his web site is now blocked. email he sent said his name was Mark but they wanted me to western union money to  FOSUNG G ETONNE.

  4. I almost purchased a Pomeranian from this site. Also got a reply back from a Mark. This time his number was 617-997-4401. Wanted me to send a Western Union payment to Broutshie R. Iluda in Boston. So I asked them to send videos and pictures. They sent more pics and a video, but all were with same background. Asked for a new video with today’s date and he said he could not.
    They are also using the name American Star Puppies. Mark used both names in one email.

    • Hi Kris,
      Im sorry to hear that you got scammed. Please share any details like phone numbers, email address etc that they used.

        • They are also using the shipping company name of Transpacific Pet, and it’s the same font and has the same misspelling of the word ‘below’ (he spells it bellow), so as soon as I got the email from Transpacific Pet, I knew I was scammed. It was the shipping info but did not ‘say anything’ really. Just my info and the dog’s info. I then got another email from Transpacific Pet telling me that a ‘new law’ went into effect ‘2 days ago’ and dogs under 20 weeks of age require a $950 travel insurance payment. I did not send get scammed on that.

      • Hi Jennifer,

  5. I just contacted this company about a dog. The man who answered my e-mail said his name was mark and to call him on his cell if I was interested in a dog. His cell number is 571-349-8953 he then told me he was based out of Virginia. Mark told me he dad the dog there with him and to call him back with my information if I wanted to purchase the poodle. I then got on an other site http:/ talked to another man who said he was located in Boston and he too had a poodle for sale. The funny thing was both of these sites had to same picture of the Teacup poodle I was interested in and gave them different names. Both men told me they each had that same puppy in their possesion. How can that be one is in Virginia and one is in Boston but yet they each have the puppy. One site had the dogs name as Danny and the other site had the dogs name as Mr.Jerry. I asked them why the same photos was on both sites and costs different prices? They responded to me that the photos could be cross posted form the breeder lol. Both sites are SCAMS!!!!! Please get these sites off the internet before to many people are out of hundreds of dollars.

  6. I am glad I did my research prior to making a purchase. When they requested to pay them through Western Union that gave it away. Thank you for creating this site. It took a while to find it but glad I finally did.
