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 bernedoodles. 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! 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.

All with texas area codes! If anyone you dont know asks you to use zelle even though its thru ur bank app….just dont! It’s diagusting that there are ppl like this in the world! I believe they will get their karma!

  2. Hi you guys that’s my sister she’s not the one scamming you guys she closed that account somebody got a hold of her card and she thought she lost it but the whole time it was stolen we been doing research to see where the money was coming from and we just found this website can you guys please email us at **************.

    • Hi Kayla,
      Although it was unfortunate for your sister, the details of the scam have not changed.
      I have sent you an email and removed your email address from the comment.

  3. I was contacted by someone named “CARTER” at HouseofBernedoodles when I sent in a contact request from the website. The telephone number he called me on was (432) 219-5747. Email he used was There was another email but I deleted it (tutucute????@???.com). When he called me to talk about the dog he sounded like he was from Nigeria or Camaroon. I got suspicious when I asked a few questions and he only answered in a very flat yes or no tone. I said to please send me a video and hung up and never heard from him again. I looked at my husband and said “That guy is a scammer”. There are a few other “House of” dog sites they use. I reported them to the BBB (Better Business Bureau) back in Feburary. SO many people got scammed by them.

  4. The website is new version of houseofbernedoodles and playfuldoodles
    Same scam, new name!

    Once again, same format, text and photos but a different website address! Please do not send any money or even log on to!

    • does not seem to exist. Can you check it and let us know the correct domain?

      • Hi Paul,

        I found the site by searching “bernedoodles for sale”. Sometimes the site has come up and other times it hasn’t. I copied and pasted it this time but couldn’t figure out how to do a screenshot. Here’s the address:

        If you put in playfulfuldoodle (without the “s”) maybe that’s why you couldn’t find.

        Thanks for this great service!

  5. houseofbernedoodles is now offline! Unfortunately, the same scammers have obviously recreated their scam under the site — the exact same site just a different name! DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO

  6. We did not figure it out in time and have lost $1900 as well. Website looked like all the other websites I have seen with various breeders. They returned my emails and texts within a reasonable timeframe and with believable answers to all my questions. It was when they wouldn’t give me the flight info and kept putting me off that I took the time to look into them more. Once I saw they had pulled the website down, I knew I had been scammed. Name used was Niakeia Caraway and email used was Phone number was (423) 203-2183. We used Zelle to send the funds. We’ve used Zelle many other times and didn’t remember there really are no protections against fraud when using it. The real losers in this are my kids who thought they were getting a puppy.

  7. I wish I had seen this site about 6 hours ago! The site is definitely a scam and just got me for about $1200 and tried to get more. They used the name Bryant Kanica, cell number (432) 203-2183. Email address was Required completion of a questionnaire to screen, prices were on par with other sites, provided photos of the parents when requested, prompt replies to email and texts. The site is made to appear like other reputable websites. The first transfer via Walmart to Walmart went thru but the second transfer (thru the exact same process) was flagged for fraud. Now my calls are rejected, they won’t reply to emails or text messages requesting a refund, and the puppy I was supposedly buying is still pictured on the website. DO NOT CONTACT THIS WEBSITE!!!

  8. Hi, I have dealing with the very same person, except it is about a FRENCH BULLDOG… The contact person is the same & the email is same. They are asking $900 for the puppies and saying they will fly the puppy to me from Texas. Everything is included in the price. I thought it could be to good to be true… This makes me very sad to know that people will do this to other people…. Thank you everyone for your comments, because with out you I would have never known this was a scam and been out of $900.

  9. We to had a similar experience as Susan’s friend and Nancy. And it appears that ew also were scammed out of $1900. The following was one of the emails received by “House of Bernedoodles”:

    Thanks for the email. Bernedoodles do not shed, his date of birth is 22nd November, 2018. See the attachment for parents pictures. He is currently on Royal Canin puppy food. I will ship Ozzz to Norfolk International Airport and you will receive him within 48 hours after receiving payment to start delivery arrangements and paperwork with the airlines today. To make Zelle payment, all you need is to sign into your bank app on your smartphone. Once you are in the app, click Pay or Transfer and then pay with Zelle. Send money to our Zelle details provided below. Email a copy of the payment confirmation or screenshot for the payment to confirm payment.
    Zelle Email:
    First Name: Cailah,
    Last Name: Pruitt,
    Amount Due: $1,900.

  10. Gosh I wish I could have read the above note, sounds like we were scammed at the same time.
    I emailed http://House of regarding a puppy I saw on their website. Email
    was quickly returned with frequent correspondence . email unable to
    use app for money transfer……used Wells Fargo Ashley Roberts account.
    She actually tried to get more money for shipping.. We lost 1900.00 but opened a case with
    police and bank. Pray that she gets caught. The entire website is fictitious .I would be really upset if my picture of my family was stolen from online source..and put as part of this SCAM

    • Nancy, if you could please call the Friendswood Police Department in Friendswood, Texas and ask for Ed

  11. I contacted regarding a puppy they offered for sale. They would not contact me by phone and I became suspicious when they seemed far more concerned about payment than answering my questions. I received responses back from an email belonging to Cailah Pruitt (email address My friend inquired into the same website and conversed (via email only) with Ashley Roberts. They failed to answer basic questions about feeding the puppy when it arrived. Sadly, my friend sent money to Wells Fargo and then never received the flight information that was to have been received.

    • Ma’am, if you could have your friend call the Friendswood Police Department, in Friendswood, Texas and ask for Ed,
