This website claims to sell pets but in fact they charge you for a pet that they never deliver.
They then claim to deliver the pet using a Fraudulent Delivery company which is actually another website they set up which steals your money for charging for non existent delivery.
This is not a website review of as they do not offer a service. They are criminals.

  1. Thanks for the warning. I knew this was to good to be true! Glad I googled & found this information before falling for this scam! Honestly these ppl need to be arrested.

  2. Yes, fell for it! Kept asking for money.
    It was all bs.

    Name; Adam Lewis
    Denver Co

    Then it was Adrian Johnson

    Edward Norton

    These were all in a 3 day span

  3. Got same letter from them. I knew it was too good to be true, should’ve known better. Glad I found this site.

  4. They are using PARADISE something. I wanted to.find out where they were located. I was not going to have a puppy shipped if I could pick it up. Nowhere on this site gives its address. And their prices were $499??
    No way. It’s like listening to Trump, the biggest scam of our country.

  5. This is the second scammer I’ve encountered in a few hours. First scammer under the name of
    A1 TEACUP SHIH TZU got irritated with me when I expressed not being a fan of wiring monies through MoneyGram. FIRST red flag was when he said my puppies are not put in the cargo area but would be put right alongside the pilot in the cockpit. Call United Airlines and they expicity said “no way, not allowed”.
    Second scammer DEB SHISH TZU PUPPIES same layout to lure money. This website has numerous complaints lodged against them. One other issue to be aware of is, they’re not listing referrals or testimonials. I’m sure there are alot more scammers because these particular breeds are designer puppies which sell for alot more money than what they are quoting. BUYERS BEWARE AND INVESTIGATE.

  6. I was looking for a Shih tzu puppy and was contacted by Deb and her partner that I was accepted for Ellie. I wrote her this morning about the puppy but did not get a response to my e-mail. I have had a sick feeling regarding this web sight and started looking for a scam and found you. Thank you for letting people know about their scam and I will be watching more closely in the future.

  7. Got the same form letter and now she says she is in Colorado Springs. Once I told her I could meet her to get a dog, she stopped communicating with me. Thanks for posting the warnings and information. Help
    Spread the word and file complaints where you can to stop these people.

  8. I appreciate everyone who wrote their experience as i was about to fall for that. I had the feeling that something wrong, and I am happy that i did not proceed.
    thanks everyone, I do appreciate.

  9. Almost fell for it … this a.m.

    Mail gram from Walmart
    Names: Jackson Brooks
    City: Denver
    State: Colorado
    Zip Code: 80219
    Address: 4576 W Dakota Ave

  10. This is the full email I received in which payment was requested:
    Ok lets move forward.When the money is sent for her, we will go have her registered for delivery to your location and we will get back to you with the full delivery information so that you know what time she will be arriving your location/home. I got the delivery address.We are looking forward to proceeding with the paper work and shipping as soon as we receive your payment. What you have to do now is that you send the money required now so that i get her registered to your information and have everything done for her to be shipped out with the next available flight tomorrow to get her home OK.She will be delivered to your home and would also come with some food stuffs.
    As for the payment,the money would have to be sent through western union money transfer because its fast and more reliable.Moreover, there is a western union store close to us here and it will not take long for us to go get the money and proceed with the shipping of the puppy. We will also like that as soon as you send the money,everything should be done as soon as possible and you also get the puppy home ASAP.
    Below is the information which you would copy,locate the nearest western union store and do a person to person money transfer:-

    Bank……………….. Western Union(Money in Minutes)
    Amount………………. $450

    Names: Chris Hawkins
    City: Denver
    State: Colorado
    Zip Code: 80219
    Address: 4576 W Dakota Ave

    So once your done with the payment, you would have to email me back with the Senders Names and Reference Number.

    Email me back once you get this information for payment.waiting

  11. This is what I got when I questioned his/her about the legitimacy of the business:
    what do you take me for? a cheat or what? I do understand where you’re coming from but be rest assured that you are getting your puppy you have my word, we’re a God fearing Christian family and cheating people of their hard earned money is not of our faith. If we actually wanted money for these dogs, then we could post ads for them asking the regular $3500 and we are sure people will contact us willing to pay such amounts but the tendency is that those who will offer to pay such amounts are certainly very rich people that will spend more time making more money than giving the love and care that their puppies need. It is said that you either have time or money, you can’t have them both.
    We must give out these puppies at this early age because they will be so much work on us when they come of age so why shall we take your money and still keep the dog. A good home for the puppy matters much than the $450 we can take from any one. Besides we do not depend on breeding and selling puppies to put food on our table because we have primary jobs. We breed for the sake of experience and though it comes with some headache, we do not ask for money as a compensation. Why should i take your $450 and not send this puppy to you? We are honest people and cheating is against the laws on earth and in heaven. If you send the money and we don’t keep our end of the deal which is getting the puppy to you, we are completely aware of the risk as you may press charges on us.
    You have my word, as soon as payment is received we shall get on the shipping process and will update you every step of the way.
    We shall place the order for the shipping and get back to you with the airway bill number, Delivery Recipient and the Tracking Number. And as soon as they arrives the shipping agent at the terminal, there will call you and notify you that you have a puppy pending delivery to your home and you will be told when the puppy will be delivered to your home. you need to use your I.D Card,Drivers license,Passport or any good identification paper to get the puppy. And as soon as i have this money and everything is done and your baby put on flight i will send you and email with all the flight details (Delivery recipient Airway bill number, and the Tracking number) is that okay.Looking forward reading from you.

    • My sister in law was told that they lived in Denver, CO. Nice to see they live in maryland now! Sad! Why do people try to scam loving homes of their money for sweet dogs that don’t exist! Sad really.

  12. I was given this info and asked to wire the money:
    Bank……………….. Western Union(Money in Minutes)
    Amount………………. $450

    Names: Chris Hawkins
    City: Denver
    State: Colorado
    Zip Code: 80219
    Address: 4576 W Dakota Ave

    • Hi Meaghan,
      Can you paste in the full email where they ask you for payment by Western Union?
      Thank you

  13. I found this after sending them a request about one of their dogs specifically and they didn’t return the email with the name of the dog , my name or anything personal . But this is what I was sent :

    I am very glad on your interest towards my female Shih Tzu puppy.They are still available for any loving and caring home.Price is $450 for her ( including shipping ).She is well trained ,potty trained and good with pets and other animal.She will come with a 1 year health guarantee.She has had all their shots and have all work papers.
    But before we proceed here are a few issues which i will like to make you understand and possibly address them before we proceed, 1st. I do NOT place our Shih Tzu puppies in homes where they will just be breeding and making money without love and care giving to them like what i do or even more. 2nd. we do NOT let our Shih Tzu puppies go to homes where they would live outside! 3rd. We will NOT place our Shih Tzu puppies with anyone who has any history of child or animal abuse!! And the 4th. ALL of our new Shih Tzu puppy owners must take time to educate themselves on how to properly care for their unique new Shih Tzu child. 5th. and last but not the list, We will probably turn down homes that have a large number of other dogs. As our Shih Tzu crave Individual love & attention. As long as you can make us understand that you will share the love in your Homes with these puppies, we will consider placing the puppy of your choice to your home, regardless of your location, even if you are not located within a driving distance, most often the homes that are most suited for our puppies are often suited far from a driving distance so we consider shipping as an option.
    We are currently living and working in Baltimore, MD. So we will ship, i can guess what question you have in mind right now, **Flying a Puppy: Is it safe? This question is often asked. We certainly wouldn’t consider it if it wasn’t. I personally asked this question to the man of the shipping company on my first attempt to ship a puppy some couple of years back, and this was his answer to me ***When we book a flight for a puppy it is only on safe, approved Airlines that has pet-safe programs that Follows USDA guidelines. The puppy will have the same air as the pilot flying the plane & someone will be there to care for & look after the puppy on and off the plane. When we go to book a flight for our pets we always call ahead and find the most direct flight available (much as if you were looking for a flight for Yourself.) Our puppies have always arrived safe and sound to their new owners, he even went further to say that it is better and more comfortable to fly a puppy on a 2-5 hours flight than drive with that puppy for 6 hours or more***. And that i believe so much because I know they are professionals and will deliver the puppy safely. Shipping a Shih Tzu puppy within the USA and Canada INCLUDES
    I ALWAYS CHOOSE TO USE AMERICAN AIRLINES PET SAFE PROGRAM LESS THEY DON’T HAVE THE MOST DIRECT FLIGHT THEN I COULD USE ANOTHER AGENCY. Keep in mind that two puppies may be shipped in the same travel kennel with no additional cost for shipping. The shipping process normally takes between 6-13 hours to complete. So the total to pay for one puppy is $450 and it includes shipping to your location.If you decide on taking two puppies, we will give another discount. The total to pay for two puppies will cost $800 and it includes shipping to your location.Just get back to me as soon as you can so that we can proceed right away. waiting to read from you soon and may GOD bless you.
    Thank you.

  14. They are using the email . Just had a family member fill out their “request form” so they could have one of their dogs go to a good home. They claim to be based out of Denver, Colorado. And the $450 includes shipping. She told my family they would tell them how to wire them the money if they approve her for a dog. Thankfully I found this site and stopped her.

    • Hi Ash,
      It is very important to file an abuse report if you believe this is a scammers website. The abuse report button is at the bottom of the article.

      • I just had a conversation with the same person claimed to be selling Shih Tzu puppies and I was given this same information. Do not get sucked into this scam it is a real live scam and she told me that she lived in Colorado as well but did not give me a physical address. It was too many red flags for me and I am glad I researched the name of these supposed to be company before I sent her $450
