Fake & Suspicious Dog Selling Websites

[Last Updated: 5/26/24 – WARNING: THIS SCAM IS STILL VERY ACTIVE! We recently found more than 60 bogus shipping companies that scammer use to trick their victims into paying money in advance. Check out the long list below for scammer’s shipping sites!] On Saturday, January 29, 2022 we were contacted by a woman who had been very excited to buy a German Shepherd puppy. To protect her identity, we’ll call her Dinah.  In Dinah’s online search, she found a website called germanshepherdpuppiesforsale.company.com. This turned out to be a scammer’s website and she lost $650, but it could have been $1900 had she believed the scammer’s lies about additional shipping requirements!  Dinah contacted us with her story and we launched an investigation of this website which claims to sell German Shepherd puppies and ship them anywhere in the world.

Surprisingly, our investigation in early February, 2022 turned up more than 21 fake or suspicious dog selling websites and services, including other scam sites linked to phone numbers and other information given on these dog-selling sites.  Below is a list of ALL of the fraudulent and suspicious websites we have found related to the purchasing and shipping of dogs and puppies.  Below this we’ll give you the details about Dinah’s story and you’ll find many more details and related articles as to WHY we think these sites are fraudulent or suspicious.  If you have been victimized by scammers who pretend to sell or transport dogs, let us know by emailing us at DogScams@thedailyscam.com!


PLEASE NOTE THAT MANY OF THESE FRAUDULENT/SUSPICIOUS WEBSITES WERE FOUND ON A Weebly website that says it was managed by “Company.com.”  Company.com is doing such a poor job of preventing fraud on their website AND making it impossible to report abuse to them that we do not recommend doing business with ANY website found on Company.com!

Dinah found several photos she liked on germanshepherdpuppiesforsale.company.com. She reached out to the owner via the email posted on the website, pgermanshepherd@gmail.com, and received a response that strongly suggested a warm, loving and thoughtful breeder….

Over the course of a few hours, Dinah settled on a particular German Shepherd puppy from the photos on the website, and sent in a payment of $500 through Zelle, along with an additional $150 for the shipping expenses.  However, the very next day, January 29th, the woman received this email below from “American Pet Courrier” (using the email americanpetstrip@gmail.com) to inform her that her puppy was stuck in Denver and that she needed to pay another $1,250 for a “thermal crate.” She thought the reason for the additional charge was very suspicious and called the Denver airport. She discovered that the “courier” was not even registered at this airport. Furthermore, the authorities at the Denver airport told her that this was very likely a scam. The woman immediately reached out to Zelle and Wells Fargo Bank to inquire about recovering her $650 since this was fraud. 

NOTICE that the second email to Dinah references a scam website called AmericanPetsTrip.com. (Check out the phone number they list in the upper right corner! It’s not real!) Also, AmericanPetsTrip.com is listed as a scam on the following websites:

Dear Client
  Tracking # WPC050826635317
   Website : https://www.americanpetstrip.com/track-form/

Accept warm greetings from the Entire AMERICAN PETS TRIP Animal Transport Department , We wish to inform you that, your GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY has arrived DENVER International (KDEN) Airport on Transit.The Puppy has now been checked at the ANIMALS WELFARE quarantine Department and all the registration papers, health certificates and passport are correct. But it shows that your puppy is just 9 weeks old and the ANIMAL WELFARE policy states any puppy below 14 weeks will need an Electronic Thermal Crate for the safe delivery of the puppy during this winter period in the USA.

Due to the regulations we now have, you are required to Rent or Purchase an (Electronic Covid 19 Thermal Crate) to have your puppy delivered during this winter period.

Reasons for a change of Crate !!

1: The Delivery crate of the puppy has to be changed from a Ventilated Crate to an Electronic Thermal Crate. The ventilated crate does not contain potty pet space for water bowl and food cane or sanitized spits during this winter period.

2: The Ventilated crate is too small for the relaxation of the puppy on the flight. Due to the above reasons, the crate has to be changed from a Ventilated Crate to an Electronic Thermal Crate.

3: We are experiencing an unfavorable weather condition and transporting the puppy in the Ventilated crate will be detrimental to the health of your pet as places are very cold.

4: We need an Electronic Thermal Crate during this period of shipping because it has a TEMPERATURE REGULATOR which will be regulated according to your puppy’s body temperament thereby maintaining a constant body temperature.

Below are some of the available crates for rent .

Thermal Electronic crate 0150 PD————-$1250.00
Thermal Electronic crate 088 PD ————$1100.00
Thermal Electronic crate 024 PD ————-$1570.00

We do not sell the crate to our customers but we offer them for a hire or rental terms to safeguards your puppies on flight. The money paid for the rental of the crate will be 98.5% REFUNDABLE to you by the delivery personnel at your Airport. Since your sender used a Ventilated crate,our agent will come along with it to swap it for the Electronic Thermal Crate that you rented from us . We request that you make a choice from the above list of crates and choose the type of crate you will like your puppy to travel in, for its own safety.


Thermal Electronic crate 0150 PD——–$1250.00 

Please respond to this email to get this resolved as soon as possible so your puppy leaves with the next scheduled flight.

American Pets Trip


The invoice available through the American Pets Trip website looks very official… (Click to enlarge)

Remember, Dinah didn’t receive an email from pgermanshepherd@gmail.com, the seller from whom she purchased the dog.  She received an email from someone at “American Pets Trip” (https://www.americanpetstrip.com / americanpetstrip@gmail.com) who told her that her puppy was younger than had been reported and she needed to rent a heated crate at the Denver Airport.  The AmericanPetsTrip.com “About Us” page says that they have been in business since 1957!  And yet, AmericanPetsTrip.com was registered anonymously less than a year ago in March, 2021 and is being hosted on a server in Bucharest, Romania.  Some of the “positive” reviews on AmericanPetsTrip.com are IDENTICAL to reviews on another pet transportation service which claims to have offices in Australia and Atlanta, Georgia called Aussie Pet Relocation.  Aussie Pet Relocation claims to have been in business for 15 years and yet, a WHOIS shows that their website was only registered anonymously at the end of August, 2021 and is hosted on a server in India!  Both of these “pet transportation services” are completely FRAUDULENT!

Based on what we learned from both GermanShepherdPuppiesForSale.company.com and AmericanPetsTrip.com, we’ve uncovered MANY fraudulent or suspicious websites claiming to have dogs for sale or adoption.  Below is a brief review of many of them and the most important reasons why we believe these sites are fraudulent or suspicious.


This website on Company.com is NEARLY IDENTICAL in design and presentation as the germanshepherdpuppiesforsale.company.com which defrauded Dinah of $650.  Also, the “Tips and Recommendations” page on this bogus website contains LOTS of stolen text taken from a legitimate dog breeder’s website at Sunshine Beagle Pups.



The phone number listed on the scam site GermanShepherdPuppiesForSale.company.com is ALSO listed on several other sites that offer dogs for sale.  This includes:


The phone number was also found on a Wix website offering to sell marijuana that was called “carmenalex480” before it was taken offline just recently.

Also, please note that these scammers periodically list dogs as “SOLD” or “RESERVED.”  This is simply meant to pressure readers into thinking they have to act quickly to send a down payment for the dog of their choice.  But these scammers also make mistakes.  Check out this mistake on https://pomandmaltesepuppies.company.com/  in which “JAMMY” didn’t age over time BUT changed gender from a male to female!  By the way, the Google map on the Contact form of this website, shows their marker as located inside City Hall in Springfield, Massachusetts!


We even found one of these scam websites that allowed people to leave comments on their site, in addition to posting fake comments stolen from other sites.  Check out these REVEALING COMMENTS on the blog for SamoyedPups.company.com from 4 people who were apparently scammed by this website! (Scroll to the bottom of the page.)  And notice that one of these victims also mentioned Zelle as the method by which these scammers wanted to be paid, just like Dinah was asked to pay for her German Shepherd.

If you were to visit the website BuyBostonTerrierPuppies.company.com you would see that they list their phone number as (405) 266-3728.  A search for this phone number turns up several complaints against this website by people saying they were scammed after paying for a dog that was never delivered.  Here are a couple of those complaints:

   Better Business Bureau (bbb.org)

This same phone number also shows up on another suspicious website called https://buypomeranianpuppies.wordpress.com/


Our research took us to many suspicious Facebook pages where puppies were also listed for sale.  Many turned up when we searched for the exact words “On a scale of 1 to 10, my cuteness is an 11. The family that I have now tells me that I am a true cutie”


This problem of extensive fraud is not restricted just to the sale of dogs.  During our investigation, we found that one of these scam phone numbers was also found on a defunct website that sold Siamese cats and was also located on Company.com: “Siamese Cattery” siamesecattery.company.com.  This bogus website is listed on Dun and Bradstreet’s website as Linda’s Siamese Cattery

In addition, these scammers have posted advertisements for their websites in local news sites and blogs across the country.  This is just one of many examples….


Sadly, all of these suspicious websites and various bread crumbs are just a drop in the bucket of fraud! Some of our searches led us to other types of scams and websites we haven’t yet had time to investigate!  For example, the phone number listed on the scam website germanshepherdpuppiesforsale.company.com is 443-457-0728. In addition to several other fraudulent or suspicious dog-selling sites, we also found that phone number on a fake law firm website (that was half-completed), a website claiming to sell marijuana, and a website selling pinball games called pinballdirect.us.  The PinballDirect.us site lists a warehouse address in Milton, North Carolina that DOES NOT EXIST according to Google! 


So how can YOU best protect yourself from these fraudulent websites? Our advice is simple… Don’t buy a pet from any website UNLESS….

  • You can video chat with the business owner and see LIVE video feed of your puppy, at least 2-3 different days/times to verify they are LIVE feeds of the animal you want to purchase.
  • You can get references from the business owner for people with whom you can also video chat and see THEIR WONDERFUL DOG!
  • Finally, we strongly suggest paying for your pet and other expenses by CHECK because a check must be signed and deposited in a legitimate bank.  If the business won’t accept a check, or a legitimate credit card transaction, then run away!

Caveat emptor!

Three Strikes and You Are Out!

We are now finding so many fake and suspicious websites selling dogs, cats, and even ferrets and capybaras, that we can’t post detailed images about them all.  But we have screenshots to support every claim we describe below. We have included the suspicious sites below into the list at the top of this article.  Below we name the suspicious website and list at least 3 strikes against the website to indicate WHY we believe it is suspicious or a complete fraud.

#16/17 pomeranain.company.com and BichonfriseFarms.com

1: The Home Address is listed as 2627 W PARKMOOR CT, Appleton, Wisconsin. But this address is a 1190 Sq Ft condo with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath.  Quite a small space for raising lots of puppies, don’t you think?

2: The “Health Guarantee” found on their webpage is identical to the Health Guarantee found on BichonfriseFarms.com, which is also VERY  suspicious because this latter site was registered anonymously in Iceland on February 8, 2021 using NameCheap.  (This is a favorite Registrar service and location of scammers).  Also, if you read the what they say about 3 dogs for sale, it’s clear that the text was copied and pasted for each dog, even though the gender changes for one. of them!

3: Male Pomeranain puppy called “Joo” (11-12 weeks old on Feb 7) was also found on a North Korean website called aboutdog.kr and was called Kei.

4. The Home page shows happy new puppy owner “Juliet Adams from Memphis, TN” with a photo of a girl about to open a little dog carrier. This same image was found on multiple sites saying that the case carried another breed of puppy, a kitten and a ferret!

5. Testimonial from “Stacey P.” from Columbus, OH shows her standing at an airport. But the testimonial says it is written by “Jack and Kristen” AND this same photo was found on another dog-selling site called bearfacepomz.com (which was registerd 4 years ago and likely legit)

6. Email address on the Contact page is given as: support@mayhempomshome.work. The domain mayhempomshome.work was registered anonymously on October 2, 2021 and is being hosted on a server in Denmark.

7. The “About Us” page shows their pink “grooming” and “laundry rooms.”  These photos were stolen from the very real website at Charpoms.net (Charpoms.net was registered in 2009 and appears to be legit.)

#18/19 Bulldogsbreeder.company.com and Kingslinebreeders.com

1. Instructions below the dogs available for purchase say to “Text us” rather than call.

2. The “Contact Us” info at the bottom of the page invites visitors to subscribe “today to Munchkin cats for sale!” The words “Munchkin cats for sale” is still linked to: https://munchkins.company.com/. This is also true at the bottom of the top page of the website. The words “visitors know how” are also linked to the munchkins.company.com website but the letter “h” in the word “touch” is linked to Kingslinebreeders.com.
The “s” in “Contact Us” points to “kingslinebreeders.com.”  “Kingslinebreeders.com” was registered in Iceland through NameCheap on April 25, 2021. (This is a favorite Registrar and location for scammers.) There are references to this site on Facebook as both “Kingsline Breeders” and “Kingline Breeder/”

3. The map on the Contact us page points to a forrested area across from Southport Road. No homes/buildings can be seen at all. The address listed at the bottom of the main web page is 2325 56th Hwy Spartanburg, South Carolina, 29302. Google says there is no such number and road in Spartanburg, SC. The map image below it shows a location in California, not S.Carolina.

4. The “About Us” page talks about Kim and Robert’s passion and love for raising dogs, ending with “The outcome of their passion is their beautiful, quality, happy, and healthy puppiekingslinebreakers.coms! And yet the top page of the website has the sentence “Adrian’s Bulldog Breeding House”. Who is Adrian?

#20 Frenchbulldog.company.com

1. Poor English on home page opening paragraphs

2. The main page contains a section called “Our Services”  which lists “Exclusive Colors,” “Worldwide Shipping,” and “International Standards.” This section is IDENTICAL to content found on other suspicious or scam sites at Company.com including:
https://pomeranain.company.com/     https://munchkins.company.com/   https://dachshundpuppies.company.com/     https://munchkinskitty.company.com/

3. The website at Frenchbulldog.company.com lists their address as 4000 Pleasant View Dr, Fayetteville, NC 28312​​. Their webpage includes a Google Map. But the map shows a marker for Fuller Ave, just off of West 6th Ave. in Helena, Montana. Moreover, we used Google street view to locate the home at 4000 Pleasant View Dr, Fayetteville, NC 28312. It is at the corner of Pleasant View Drive and Karen Street. We moved up Karen Street and turned to look into the back yard of 4000 Pleasant View Drive. We find no evidence whatsoever of a home that raises dogs. There is no fence or dog pens, no protected area to keep them from running into the street. We thought this was suspicious.

4. Their “Testimonials” page shows two reviews with different names and reviews but use the EXACT SAME PHOTO! The family is listed as both “Shaly and max from Kentucky, Frankfort” and then “Yannick Jones, Family from California , Sacramento.” They also show another photo of a family with the SAME NAME and SAME REVIEW. But this other family photo of 4 people with face masks appears on their main web page as “Marie Ann” from Arizona Phoenix.

5. Like so many of these scam/suspicious sites on Company.com, this website also says “MAKE SURE YOU MENTION THE NAMES OF THE FRENCH BULLDOG PUPPY ‘S YOU WANT TO ADOPT SO IT WILL BE EASIER FOR US TO GET BACK TO YOU WITH MORE INFORMATION”. This website also includes LOTS of hidden text that is meant to capture the attention of search engines and twitter feeds. It can be found at the bottom of the website pages. For example…

#21 FrenchBulldogPuppyForSale.net

1. frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net was registered anonymously in Iceland using Namecheap on September 5, 2021. This is a favoriate Registrar and location for scammers to register their scam domains. Also, it points out that this website is only a little more than 6 months old.

2. The testimonial page on FrenchBullDogPuppyForSale.net has several reviews that are IDENTICAL to reviews found on the legitimate website called TheRussianBlues.com. (By contrast, TheRussianBlues.com was registered in the US in July, 2014.). For example, on Frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net there is a quote from “Maxwell Hoad” from Seattle, WA saying “We love our sun conure “Pepper”. He’s just a joy! When we picked him up he was already sweet and potty trained! Totally recommend this place and should we decide to get a buddy for Pepper this is where we’ll get the next…” This identical quote can be found on the Testimonials page at jcaviary.com/testimonials. The last few words are then changed in the quote found on frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net

Also, the quote identified as “VESTA MORGAN, MI” on frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net says “Our 6 month old sweet boy has been an amazing addition to our family. He is playful and affectionate and provides us with hours of entertainment and cuddles. It is impossible to imagine our home without him. It was clear from day one that he was well raised by Christine – a gorgeous and healthy animal that is true to his breed (smart, playful, and more social than we could have hoped for!) Our beautiful baby boy (child to some, sibling to others) has stolen our hearts and, as with some of his toys, refuses to give them back (a direct quite from our 11-year-old)! Thank you Christine!!!!This exact quote can also be found on the legitimate website TheRussianBlues.com.

You’ll also find another quote on frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net from “Christine ,MA” that begins with “After the passing of my parents-in-law beloved 20-year old French Bulldog, my husband and I were on the look out to purchase a Frenchie of our own. When we ran across Royal French Bulldog Ranch website, Mist Traditional Frenchie’, we knew that we had found the place.” You’ll find this EXACT quote on TheRussianBlues.com website EXCEPT that specific words have been altered to change cats to dogs! On legitimate website TheRussianBlues.com, the quote begins as “After the passing of my parents-in-law beloved 20-year old Russian blue cat, my husband and I were on the look out to purchase a Russian Blue kitten of our own. When we ran across Christine’s website‘Archangel Mist Traditional Russian Blue Cat’, we knew that we had found the place.” Our guess is that all of the testimonials on frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net have been stolen from other websites, such as TheRussianBlues.com.

3. We found multiple instances of links on frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net that point to other dog-selling websites. Some of these links are 1 single letter of a word, which is very odd. For example, on this webpage, https://frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net/facts-about-french-bulldogs/ , the word “puppies” is linked to a website called PuppySpot.com (which was registered in 2004.). On the main page, in a blue box, is the word “Bulldogs.” This word is linked to a website called BuckeyePuppies.com, which was registered back in 2009. Remember, frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net was only registered about 6 months before we found it! On the webpage https://frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net/rescue-french-bulldogs-for-sale/ we found the letter “e” in the word “raise” was linked to http://excellenthomepugpuppies.com/. But this is also another suspicious website because it, too, was registered through Namecheap in Iceland on November 1, 2021! This is very young for a website and uses a favorite scammer registrar and scammer location. We also found the letter “m” in “information” to be linked to this same website. This was found on the “Privacy Policy” webpage at frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net. Oddly, this Privacy Policy webpage is listed as: https://frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net/cheap-french-bulldog-puppies-under-500/

4. The two photos on the “Shipping and Health Guarantee” webpage, https://frenchbulldogpuppyforsale.net/shipping-and-health-guarantee, are stretched and distorted. This is very unprofessional.
