    it's probably a scam.

    there's a lot of scammers out there who advertise dogs (usually popular, expensive breeds) and encourage innocent people into paying for the dog before they see it. The 'seller' then says they will meet the buyer somewhere with the dog, or that they will deliver the dog to them, but it never happens... because there isn't really a dog. The scammer then disappears with the money and the other person is left skint and disappointed.

    Pehaps it would be an idea to email some of the advertisers using this picture and ask for some background information on the dog and see what replies you get? It would be very interesting to see if there's any similarities. I wouldn't tell them you suspect it's a scam though because they won't reply.

    then you could report the adverts and help to get rid of the scammers :D
