If someone's advertising a bargain on a purebred pet, it's probably a scam. If they are linked to Waggingtaildoxies.com then it IS a scam.

The trouble with a purchase like a puppy is that the internet is the most common place to look.
No-one wants to support cruel breeding farms, and most legitimate breeders have websites and also advertise online.
Criminals take advantage of this by creating their own websites and paying for advertising using stolen credit cards.

These scammers have multiple websites which sell other puppys besides dachshunds. They normally go for the most popular breeds as they can find the most victims.

If you enquire about one of their puppys they will offer you huge discounts. They will even throw in the best puppy food for your new puppy!

Waggingtaildoxies.com will claim to deliver the puppy using a Fake Delivery company which is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, veternary bills, medical insurance for your puppy as well as multiple other fees.

  1. This is all so heartbreaking as most of your stories reflect ours. We found Gracie a 10wk old Dachshund on the website Rigby Doxies. My mother inquired if Gracie was still available. She received a reply from support@rigbydoxies.com stating that yes Gracie was still available. We started communicating about Gracie and what the next steps were in regards to purchasing her. I guess my first red flag should have been when it took 3 emails before I was provided with a name and phone number of a guy named Robert. However I was told that I could call in 4hrs when he was off work. When I called no one answered and it was text subscriber number. He emailed me back and said that he was still at work but essentially answered all the questions I had via email. In my mind I thought this would be better as at least I had a paper trail. On the 4th of February we made a payment of Gracie using the Zelle app. Due to Zelle’s weekly max I tried using apple pay to complete the rest of the payment. I got an email back stating they received the Zelle payment but the Apple payment hadn’t gone though. I eventually ended up cancelling the Apply Payment and sent the remaining payment though the Zelle app to larryblinks11@gmail.com and ciniewakio96@gmail.com. I thought this was a little odd but it was a family owned business. Once the payments were received an email with a certificate of ownership and a letter stating that we now had ownership of Gracie. This came from a guy name Quiacy Rigby located at 13297 Andrews Drive. Denver CO and had phone number of 970-550-1140. On Saturday the 6th of February at 9:32am we received Gracie’s tracking information. Turns out her tracking information is part of the elaborate scam as well. Later that afternoon I checked on the website to see if they had any updates as to where Gracie might be and when she would arrive. The website stated that she was out for delivery but was in Boise, Idaho. I tried to call the shipping company only to find that the number was working so I emailed them. Shortly after emailing them I got a response stating that Gracie was now on hold due to the sender not shipping her in the correct crate. I was told that we needed to rent her a warming crate so she could safely be transported. That we would get our money back in full once Gracie was safely delivered. Due to the high cost of the warming crate I emailed back stating that I needed to talk to a person before any additional information would be paid out. Needless to say no one would contact me and all the numbers I had listed for the seller would answer. So now my family is out $700.00 and we still don’t have a puppy. Here is a list of all the phone numbers I have for this seller.


  2. Beware of Rigbydoxie.com another scam website. I lost $390. I should of listened to my husband.

    1. Interested in a dachsund named Finn.
    2. The name the scammers used was alishia and Robert Thompson from Colorado . Address used is 13297 andrews dr, Denver Co 80239
    I should of questioned it when I couldn’t find it on the maps.
    They gave there zelle info . They stated: monkeymaclax@gmail.com
    Mackenzie Ryan.
    Please send a screenshot of the transaction after payment so that we can attach to the transfer of ownership document and sales contract.
    That wasn’t found so they sent me another zelle acct achobrandon@mail.com Remy Tazifor. I asked who is Remy? They said it’s there son. I believed them. I was provided a number to call Robert, he didn’t answer he said he was working. To text or call in two hours. The wife said please let me know u r still interested because I have two other inquiries. I was so desperate to surprise my husband with a dog and got scammed.
    I sent the money via zelle and my bank held it for a few hours and release it.
    3. They sent me a certificate of ownership and bill of sale.
    4. Sellers name Quiacy Rigby. I looked it up and found out the scam report website I was scammed by the same person. I was so upset.
    5. Til this day the scammer keep saying they haven’t received the payment. I responded that the funds are already deducted from my acct . I asked them about sun rays dachsund and she stated : That’s a fraudulent website that wrote us stating interest in our puppies and when se sent pics we later heard that they set up a fake site.

    I advised them I have to ask a lot of questions and I didn’t want to be scammed: she responded: My husband and I are Christians and we have never taken payment and not delivered a puppy as promised.
    We’ve been scammed before and we know how hurtful it is to do to someone.
    Once you do the deposit we will do the transfer of ownership document and sales contract and send to you to sign and send back to us and tomorrow we will have the puppy registered for delivery and send you the delivery details and tracking number to follow up with the puppy’s deliver.

    I believed her unfortunately. Don’t email support@rigbydoxie.com .

  3. My friend just bought from this company. They had her for 2 days, and ended up making $2,300 off her by telling her the puppy was suffering and needed a/c and food for the flight, needed to be registered with the state (which they “would do” for you), and that she had to pay an extra delivery fee that she would get back when she got the puppy. She never got the dog, and i will be surprised if she can somehow get her money back. Please please please read before you put so much money into something!!! Make sure you can see and play with the dog (and make sure the owner isn’t sketchy) before you put down ONE CENT. I know cute puppy pictures can be hard to turn down, but on these type of sites you are only paying to see a picture of a puppy that might not even exist anymore. Luckily, i found this out through my friend, and not personal experience. Nevertheless, this is happening everywhere to everyone and people need to be careful about all products they buy online.

  4. Thank you all for posting here! I almost got scammed myself, but before sending money I decided to do a little research and up popped this site. These people need to be shut down and charged with criminal activity. Thanks again for posting. I’m very sorry to hear so many of you were scammed, but I am grateful you saved me from getting scammed too.

  5. I saved my money until I could find a decent price for a puppy for my son I was blindsided by my excitement and my trusting nature towards people with pets of their own they got me for the 500$ until I got an odd email from the supposedly pet courier they use I double checked uships website and it turns out they never ask for money thru money gram or western union I emailed them back a screenshot of that being stated on the official Uship website and I wrote that they almost had me for the full 1,500 I told them no sweat it’s a lesson learned for me and I know one day they will learn theirs.

  6. Thank you to everyone who opened my eyes. while looking a puppie on different sights I notice the dogs all look the same on all the sights. Had I not just been on line looking at pictures saw what looked like the same dogs same poses which made me go to scam sight and found all of you. I almost lost my money like you all did
    THANKS FOR THE WARNING. They need to be stopped.


  7. They got me for $500. I sent money via cashapp. Money was sent to $NIQUELLE. Same email and phone number as in other post

  8. I was “JUST” scammed using the EXACT same spiel, from the exact same people! I’m sure of it! Every word, communication, supposed location & $ amount are identical, with the exception of the site name & supposed name of the person of contact. Also, the following fell under “HAPPY FEET DASHUNDS”, instead of “Wagging Tails”, which I just discovered is what the name was changed to.

    Site: Marigo-doxies
    Contact person: Michael McNamara
    Ph #: (609) 339-7709
    Email used during initial contact: marigodoxies@gmail.com
    Email used for Zelle: marbelybra@gmail.com

    Beware & good luck…!

  9. Almost happened to my wife , good thing she married a untrusting s.o.b like myself, knew all this was To good to be True so I looked them up and found this , Never gave them a cent , but I don’t even like that they have our email address and home address, they’ll get what’s coming to them

  10. I am so glad I did research! I was interested in “Sophie” from this website:
    https://channydachshunds.com/available-puppies. We love mini dachshunds and already have one. After our initial inquiry on their site, they emailed me right away from the address: info@channydachshunds.com. I responded answering their questions, then they sent this:

    “Ok great.  we are located in New Jersey and we offer free delivery within the United States. We offer free delivery because we currently have a coupon from our delivery agency to ship up to three puppies for free. so if you are buying from us today, we will be able to ship to you for free. We also offer two methods of delivery, home delivery and airport pick up. So which methods would you prefer ?”

    This sounded strange to me, so I decided to research. I am glad I did before sending any money. I knew it sounded too good to be true… Thank you for exposing these criminals.

  11. Your not kidding I tried to buy a puppy back in Feb. that puppy is still on the website listed as 11 weeks old. That puppy must be close to 6mon. old by now. Another way you can tell is they don’t have a Facebook acct. If you want to find a real dog go to akc.org. or Breeders net. Or go through the National breeders list. You will see a big difference !!! Real breeders will say that for whatever reason you can’t keep the dog they will take it back. That’s how you know they really care about the dogs !! Good luck out there and buyer beware !!!

  12. I was just almost scammed by them too! Thank goodness for this site. How can we report so their site gets taken down? What a shame.

  13. This. Is. A. Scam!! The website is now called happyfeetdachshund.com. The dogs pictures are pulled from Pinterest. I asked them to send me a video and they did not.

  14. I was in contact with them, i sent them 500$ then i come here and see this.

    my question now is, since we have established they are fake/ scammers

    how do we get them , prosecute them . this is outrageous. i feel stupid but they must be stopped

    sent through zelle, Wellsterry188@gmail.com (Joseph)

  15. I just emailed them intrested in a pup thankfully I decided to double check before confirming or sending any money. Im so glad that I found this post. They need to be track down by there IP address and put in jail!

  16. I was stupid enough to get scammed by Channy-dachshunds.com . There shipping company,uship,pets,usa, is part of the scam. They got me for $1500 , the dog was 550 and insurance and climate controlled cage was $500 and $450. Which was all refundable as so as the puppy arrived. This morning they was going to tell me the schedule but guess what no response.

  17. Sent them an email and got all excited about Rosie and Otto. Tried to make me zelle them money right now to “hold” the dogs after our vacation. They are a SCAM. I’m really happy I saw this before I gave them 1100$ for the puppies we would never get.

  18. almost fell for the scam, was so happy to try and get rosie and they said $550 and free shipping seemed kinda weird. Found this and looks like its a scam. using the email Channy-Dachshunds .

  19. Thank goodness for this site. I was so very close to sending money for “Pat” who looked just like the mini dachshund we just lost. My story is almost identical to many others. I started getting a little suspicious when the responder only gave vague answers to my questions. The responder wanted payment through Zelle, an app I had never heard of before. I looked it up, and it is a legitimate payment app, but it said to make sure you trust the person/company to whom you are sending money. This led me to do some research and it led me to your site. I am devastated that we will not be receiving “Pat,” but am so thankful I checked things out before sending these people $500!

  20. Since I left my last review they have changed from wagging tail dachshunds to “channy dachshunds” these people are ruthless. The phone # has changed to 856-222-9137 and e-mail address is now channydachshunds@gmail.com

  21. I am so glad I found this. I almost sent them money for Rosie until I read this. My parents kept urging me to find reviews and when I found this I was devastated. I’ve been looking for a puppy and I thought she was the one. Thank y’all. I found her on Happy Feet Dachshunds with the email info.happyfeetdachshundspup@gmail.com with the phone number 8563349696 in New Jersey

  22. I was ready to send $550 to them today. I explained that my miniature dachshund had recently passed in March and the puppy they advertised as “Martha” looked just like her. My husband insisted that I check them out first and it led me to this site. This person needs to pay dearly for taking advantage of people in this way! I even asked how she would be taken care of during shipping and he said she would be provided food & water and she was potty trained and would arrive in perfect condition. Shame on him!! I was so excited about receiving this adorable puppy advertised and my heart is broken. They wanted me to send payment by Moneygram or Walmart to Walmart. The phone listed is 856-334-9696 but when I used reverse lookup it showed as a private #

  23. I am so thankful for this page you all have no idea. I am also very sad that I won’t be purchasing Luca…which I am assuming many of you wanted as well… I was nearly minutes away from giving them 550$…

  24. “Wagging Tail Doxies” also know as “Wagging Tail Dachshund” or “Happy Feet Dachshunds.”

    They use the email address WaggingTailDachshunds@gmail.com
    contact #856 222 9137 .
    I knew they were a scam when they would not send pictures I request or tell me any detailed info. Then they claimed to only use “Cash App” and I said I would only do PayPal and they stopped responding.

  25. Wagging tail doxie was the email they used and happy feet dachshund was their website. They are continuously scamming and need to be reported and stopped.

  26. It just didnt feel right. Wagging tail doxie was the email they used and happy feet dachshund was their website. They are continuously scamming and need to be reported and stopped.

  27. I was almost scammed by these crooks as well…and they sent me these bank transfer instructions to send them money.
    I’ve also contacted the District Attorney in New Jersey as well as the FBI in New York. Hopefully this man will be arrested and put behind bars.

    This is our bank account details for payment. You have to go to your bank and make a wire transfer I to our bank account information below so that we can proceed at once.

    Bank Address.. 2850 26thv Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55406

  28. I am so glad I just looked this up, as I have been going back and forth with this new website “happyfeetdachshunds.com – the person would not give me any information, such as name or anything – so I started to look up online, and here we are.

    waggingtaildachshunds@gmail.com is what they are using

    I asked for delivery service names and all, said they are offering FREE right now, but didn’t feel right. Asked where in MN they are located and now will not answer – as I said I would drive to pick the puppy up.

  29. Your comments just saved me $500. Thank you so much for reporting. I was literally one click away from sending the money but something just didn’t feel right so I started to research and ended up here. Tyler.daniel73@yahoo.com
    was my contact at waging tail doxies.
    Any suggestions on reputable breeders that have dont charge excessive rates?

    • Hi Cathy – I would at a very minimum recommend that you visit in person any pet before you buy it. Almost 80% of online adverts advertising pets are estimated to be fake according to the Better Business Bureau.

  30. Royaldachshundpups.com is a scam site they have photos of some other breeders stolen from the internet. Generic website but when you ask questions you get short answers and phone numbers, people who have purchased are fake. BEWARE!!!

  31. Wagging Tail Dachshunds was the email address used. Without realizing it was a scam at first, an inquiry was sent about a puppy. The response to our email was very generic and the grammar was horrendous. I realized it was a scam before payment was given.
