My boyfriend and I have recently been looking to buy a golden retriever puppy and we found one on pets4homes from someone local. We got in contact and she send pics of puppy and I immediately felt I had seen the puppy pics before from we known dog pages I follow on Instagram. I decided to check my Instagram followers and I was right, exact same puppy from a breeder in Canada. I also asked for videos of puppies and the excuse was made that they had only just opened their eyes so they would send them in a few weeks when they are up moving... Sure. Before I searched the Instagram pics we decided to test this person and see if the the “dogs” and “pups” were KC registered etc. She gave us the name of the dog and we were able to find it which I found weird. They also gave us a litter registration which was in progress. I was wondering how they would get this information, would it just be stolen from someone else? The thing that worried me most is they were prepared for us to go to their home to view the ‘puppies’. Why would this be? If puppies didn’t exist why would they want us to go visit?
