Hello everyone :)

I have been researching & reading about my perfect puppy. I've had fur babies all my life but now I'm in my early thirties have a stable job & want a baby (don't have any fur babies now)
So I have a question I found a so called "rev" online that has two Maltese puppies that I fell in love with the pictures... I'm a very suspicious person online scams & I just have to give money for flight ticket only?! He said they are AKC certified, given their shots but they are 8 weeks old?! & are house trained!! I haven't seen a puppy that young fully house trained anyways to make it short can I trust him? I told him I don't have credit card & want to pay after I get my puppy & want to see the certificates. The last email I sent was that I don't have credit card & he hasn't replied) so it could be a scam or am I really suspicious?

If this puppy doesn't work out I will still search for my perfect breed from a responsible breeder & I've told the shelters where I live (Iran) which aren't many what breeds I want.

Thank you for reading till the end)

I'm going to say no. Don't trust him, don't buy from him, no matter what he tells you. 1) that puppy is not housetrained at 8 weeks old. 2) It's more than like a puppy mill, which means the puppy would probably be sickly and more than likely die, assuming it actually exists. It is probably a scam. I would cut off all contact now.

The only way I would ever trust a breeder to ship a puppy to me is if I had already met them in person, met their dogs in person, and had already bought a puppy from them in the recent past. Even then, I'd be iffy on it.

My advice to you is to look into shelters and breeders near you. And seriously don't buy a puppy online


And welcome to the forum! If I seem harsh in this post, it's about puppy mills that sell online, and has nothing to do with you personally. I hope you find the perfect dog for you

He wrote again saying the flight agency will call you, I reminded him I don't have credit card & will pay cash only when they bring me the puppy home
How can he not have found a home for the puppies where he is?! I'm getting more suspicious at the second. He hasn't emailed me the AKC certificate & asked him for more pictures & video

Thank you so much you are right he is in a hurry & I'm telling him I need more information.
You are right I should get a puppy around me & stay suspicious

No worries everyone I found a few good breeders & talked to the shelters which one is my good friend. I'm "patiently " waiting
Thank you everyone but with my suspicious attitude I won't be scammed & yes I will notify some one ASAP about him.
