Online Labrador puppy scams

Scammers have been around since the dawn of time, taking advantage of trusting individuals to get what they want.

Labrador puppy scammers have even worked their way into the pet space. Sadly, criminals have been creating realistic websits claiming to sell Labrador puppies however all images and videos have been stolen online. The puppy is not in the scammers possession.

Tips for Avoiding Online Labrador puppy Scams

  1. Ask for multiple pictures of the pet, including poses with specific items (a recent newspaper, a tennis ball, etc.) to make sure the pet is real.
  2. Ask for a phone number for the person selling the puppy and a veterinary clinic the pet has been to. If the seller won’t give the numbers this is probably a scam. If they do give the phone numbers, call and ask questions.
  3. If the seller says they are in a particular state but asks you to send money elsewhere, especially another country, avoid it.
  4. If the seller/breeder is not located in the US, avoid it.
  5. If the person is claiming to be a breeder, ask for breeder registration information. If they won’t give it, walk away. If they do give it, verify with the appropriate breeders’ group.
  6. Never pay in cash via Zelle, Cashapp, money order or Western Union.
  7. Be skeptical if the seller adds “additional charges” such as: fees for a vet visit, a different crate, travel expenses, pet insurance, etc. Pet insurance is NOT required for a pet to be shipped or to travel.
  8. Don’t trust a seller that pushes for the sale to happen quickly by saying they are moving, they have to get rid of the puppy asap, they can’t take care of the pet anymore or that harm may come to the pet or most often, because they are having another litter.
  9. Do research to get a sense of what a fair price is for the breed you are interested in adopting. Think twice if they are selling a purebred puppy for free or at a very low price for the breed.
  10. It should be a red flag if e-mail communications have broken English or very poor grammar.

Adopting a new Labrador puppy is an exciting time. Do your research and don’t cut corners during the adoption process. Your best bet is to find an ethical breeder or a reputable local rescue group or shelter.
