Westernminidachshund.com is not a puppy breeders website and this is not a review of Westernminidachshund.com. This is a warning.

They claims to sell puppys but the domain was actually created by criminals in order to defraud people wanting to buy a dachshund.
Once you express interest in buying one of the puppys the scammer will send you a template email telling you a lot of details about the puppy as well as information on the best puppy food to use, and how you should take care of your new puppy.

They will even send you “proof” by showing you pictures they have stolen off the internet of dachshund puppys.

Westernminidachshund.com will claim to deliver the puppy using a Fraudulent Delivery company.
The “delivery company” is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, an air conditioned travel crate, medical insurance for your puppy as well as multiple other fees.

  1. I just paid $800 for a dachshund puppy through WesternMiniDachshnds.com , puppy was supposed to come yesterday. At 6:00 am I received an email from the “pet transport company” telling me that the crate the puppy was dropped off in is too small and, because of possible turbulence I flight, the crate needs to be temperature controlled. I was told I needed to immediately send them an additional $980 cash for the crate expense, but not to worry, once the plane landed and the agent brought me the puppy, they would also give me back the $980 in cash…..HUGE RED FLAG!

    I am currently still emailing the guy from WesternMiniDachshnds.com at [email protected], he keeps finding ways to tell me the refund money is being delayed. So, I now have all of my friends/family bombarding both of his email addresses with emails asking for my refund.
