1.Who are you living with?
2.Are they animal lovers too?
3.Have you had dogs before?
Hi,I'm willing to let you have Mimi.Atleast your experience with dogs reassures me she'll be well taken care of.She's very ready to leave.If you can come up with half the fees now,I'll complete it and send her to you provided you promise taking great care of her.I can dispatch shipment tomorropw morning if you're ready.You'll need to let me know the nearest airport to you from where you'll pick her up including your full name as it will appear as the receiver's name when you go for pick up.Get back soon and we'll proceed from there.
They used the name of Kimberly Campbell (email@example.com)
I got the same e-mail and saw the same ad in a local reporter here in San Antonio, TX.
Here's the e-mail that he sent:
Thank you very much and i'm very very happy to read from you about your response on taking good care of the babies. they are 14weeks old and both home trained and outdoor trained also playful with other animals and kids. The male named (bobby) weigh 2lbs and the female named (lee) weigh 2.5lbs and will weigh big when fully grown. they are both A K C registered and shots are given up to date and both home trained. both of them are my darling sweetheart and super spoiled! They both have a sweet personality and loves to play and be carried around.But i'm very sorry to tell you that it is too late for you to get the babies now. What really happened was that i just left the state for africa in some few days ago after i posted the the ad the 2 Yorkshire Terrier Puppies on the newspspper and before i left, i did not get any response from anybody that could take very good care of them for me. So i got a missionary call from our missionary head quaters in africa, then i have to bring the babies along with me here in africa since i couldn't find someone to adopt them before i left the state. I'm still willing to give the babies out to someone who can take very good care of them for me forever.
All papers will accompany the puppies when shipped to you, Due to our long staying over here in africa , and the bad weather my Wife and I have concluded to get good home and care for our babies. We are not charging or selling them to you for money but to save thier lifes saved and care for them so this means that, you and i will be paying for the shipment of the puppies to you. they are VET checked, but right now we are in Africa on a Christian mission with my wife and 3 kids together with bobby and lee, we have the puppies right here with us.We are going to ship to you via a Diplomatic Courier Service Company with Express Delivery on next day delivery, if you are really interested in having my little babies, i will like you to get back to me with the Below information i can find out shipping to your Nearest Airport and we both responsible for the shipping

I've attached pics of bobby and lee. Please if you know that you are not capable of taking very good care of my babies, do not reply me because i am giving them out because of bad condition and we're spending months for the christain mission and i don't want bobby and lee to die in this bad weather. And because we don't have time to take care of them due to the missionary work before us here. They are priceless to me,therefore i am giving both for free . Please i want you to promise me that you will take very good care of them as soon as they get to you. Thank you and God bless you and your family.
Scammers!! I even waited a few days and e-mailed them back and now yahoo sends me an e-mail back saying there is no longer an e-mail address of theirs anymore.
Two good sites for more information are www.scamorama.com and www.scambusters.com
The puppy scam is also well documented there!
I almost fell for the same thing! I had suspicion from the start when they would not divulge a contact phone number after I had given them mine. She used the story that she and her family moved from SC to GA for her son's treatment and was no longer able to devote the necessary time to the tea cup yorkie supposedly named Lil Cocoa. She even sent me pics of the dog (which I'm sure could easily have been copied from the internet). She didnt want any money for the dog, just for me to pay the delivery fees for shipping the dog "directly to my door step". When I offered to drive to GA to meet with her and get the dog---eliminating the need to pay the delivery fee---she gave some lame excuse about her being in the hospital with her son and there not being any visitors allowed?
When I asked what delivery company she was going to use so I could contact them on my own to verify if it was legit, she gave me the following info:
Below are the information you requested for confirmation.
Transaction ID Reference No:0455686565
Yaounde Nsimalen International Airport
Department For Pet Transports And Delivery
Tel Number (Line 4) :00237-7705-1571 or +237-7705-1571
We will be expecting to read from you and hope soon as you conclude every necessary arrangement .Thanks

Why would they use an airport in Cameroon, Africa if they live in Georgia???? PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM, AS I'M SURE I WOULD HAVE BEEN A VICTIM HAD I NOT USED COMMON SENSE. The email addy she used is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I responded to her saying that I knew she was trying to run a scam and to never email me again.
I wanted to buy acapuchin monkey from someone called Liza Ray in Belfast, she said she worked for the chamber of commerce in NI at first the monkey was £350 plus £190 for change of ownership and shipping then when I said I could not take delivery until the 25thMay she said that was fine and I heard nothing from her until 24th saying that delivery would take place on 26th and the delivery company would contact me via email with method of payment the cost had now gone down to £90.
I checked out the address she gave me in NI it was the holiday Inn, when I recieved the email from the delivery company asking me to pay by money gram I checked out the address they had given me for the delivery company. That turned out to be the natural zooilogical museum in Belfast. I had many quite agressive phone calls from them so I told them I would only pay cash on delivery for the monkey I also told them that I had checked out the addresses and phone number on the emails and they were bogus, they assured me that they were legit and the monkey was coming by train and not air lol I still insisted that I would only pay cash on delivery and they said they would get back to me, I wonder if they will.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BUY ANY CAPUCHIN MONKEYS FROM THE ICLADS WEB SITE I HAVE CHECKED OUT AT LEAST 6 OF THEIR SELLERS AND THEY ALL GIVE ADDRESSES IN UK NI AND ISLE OF MAN AND NONE OF THEM EXIST
A man from Cameroon tried selling 2 dogs named Eddie and Haily. He said his wife died 2 weeks ago and he had the pups just for her.His email was email@example.com
Y MAIL? WHAT!!!!! Have you ever heard of such thing? I was about to get Eddie because he skateboarded! He was so adorable and cute. DO NOT GIVE THOSE PEOPLE YOUR MONEY! IF IT SAYS FROM CAMEROON OR IM LOCATED IN CAMEROON THEN ITS A HUGE SCAM!! SO BE AWARE OF CHRISTIAN.BABE@YMAIL.COM
I tried to buy a Shetland pony from a guy named Arnold in Ghana. Thing is, he said this pony was special as it suffered from gigantism meaning that although it was a Shetland pony it was the size of a normal horse. That's why the price was double from usual. He said he'd throw in some Chiclets because that's what they like to eat. He even sent a picture of the horse - he calls it Snappy - catching a frisbee which is awesome. The horse only costs like $1800 but only if i send him the money by tomorrow. Should i do it??/ His email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm proud to say i'm from Cameroon, but it brokes my heart to hear all these happening. The way some of us get treated out of home is sometimes unbearable...and now i understand why. These fulks back home need to stop tarnishing the image of our beautiful motherland... starting with the biggest scammer himself of course... popo you know that right?
I had the exact same experience as so many others before me have already described - fortunately, I didn't fall for it. The scammer was named Sema Armstrong, her e-mail address was email@example.com and she at first claimed to live in Belgium. Instead, after checking the IP-address of her e-mail, I saw that she was originally from Douala, Cameroon (Africa).
So, people, when in doubt, checking an e-mail's IP-address is a good idea!

Has anyone researched the Kelly and Kitty puppy thing? Is it a scam?
ipflight.tk is not an illegitimate agency , this agency do exist and their web site is been used by hackers and scammers . any payment address in Cameroon do not ,pay only in the country you are located if you are in USA pay only in USA
Beware of a new variation on the Cameroon Horse purchase. They now say that the horse is in the United States, but of course not in the state in which you reside. Everything else is identical trying to get you to pay the "pet shipping company" a wire transfer to their headquarters in Cameroon. The US tel # they provided was bogus and they would only communicate via email. I actually found two suspicious ads - one for a Friesian gelding and another for a Palomino Quarterhorse gelding. Fortunately, I have a suspicious nature and didn't pay a dime until I did a little research. Your site hit the scammers on the nose. Be careful out there!
I found the puppy Kelly on the local crage's list. Why would they list a puppy in Wichita that was in Africa?
All they want is the money to ship her to me.
asking the same questions, name , address, do you have kids, have other dogs, name of airport etc.
They even had a site with an airplane on it. Looks real.
Want's you to send the money order to: Patcha Alain
1564 Bona Bori
Littoral/Douala Cameroon 00237 with phone # 237-7515-6420
the email for her/him is: Gerdine Enjoy
don't fall for this scam.
I just figured out I was involved in a scam as well. It seemed fishy so I checked out the airport info & came upon this site. The email address used for the scam is firstname.lastname@example.org. She said she was a doctor who bought the Yorkie in New York & after traveling to Cameroon for work decided the climate was too hot for dog. Also her spelling & language were not what I would expect from a doctor. Also the time frame for shipping from Africa to the USA would be a couple of hours. That was a red flag. Bummer. My daughter really wanted the dog in the pictures.
I was just about to send my money for two yorkie poodles, but thanks to this website i wont be....then I just thought about it, he said that my puppy was already at the shipping company but he never asked me if i wanted the male or female.
I too was in line to western union "shipping" fee for a beautiful Yorkie from Camarron, when my husband called me and said NO. he'd found on the internet all the scams from Camaroon involving Yorkies. The lady, if thats who she really was, is very mad and e-mailing me all sorts of crap. her yahoo ID is kettydoll. Signed her emails- Ketty and Glenn Maine
what kind of information will you like to have, your parrots are already at the airport and the airport manager told me that he tried calling you but your number was not going through so can you please give your phone number. i asure you that the parrots are now in the airport. and i promise you that as soon as you send the 300$ for the 2 parrots i will proceed to the airport and pay for the flight ok.
so i hope you have all the payment information which i send to you right.
i am a missionary from america and i left there since last month as i told you before ok.
so if you are willing to have the parrots go to any western union money transfer office and do the transfer so that i will proceed to the airport at once ok. as soon as the flight fee is paid the airport will give you all flight details.
so as soon as you send the money get back to me with the money transfer details (MTCN) and sender names ok. please also remember to send me your phone number and code ok.
THIS A SCAM FUCK THEM WILLIE FROM BROOKLYN ONE MORE TIME FUCK THEM
I just relized i was involed in the same scam, steming from Craigslist. Im so upset, the guy is sending the Mini Doxin to airport now, and emailed me stating it was dropped off and I could exspect a call from the airport in Cameroon too pay for my crate..thats all i had to pay for. The pictures were perfect, we believed them. Im so upset.
thank you for this website...it helps me to block the western union transaction.... so the moral lesson is don't buy pet on the internet...ok thank you....
Hi, i'm in England and have been trying to find a springer spaniel. I found an ad for a localish puppy and so contacted them. Supposedly he (Mike Gordon) was actually in Fife, Scotland. 400 miles away. Of course shipping could be arranged!! £90 paid by moneygram to
ADDRESS............maker rooms avenue
As soon as I saw Caeroon I started checking around and luckily found this site and all the previous comments.
I obviuosly can't prove that the sale is bogus but I dont intend to find out now either.
Kenco - it is bogus of course. We need someone to go over there and pay a visit to these scammers! Hopefully they will rip off a mafia boss's wife or something and he'll send some goons on a little holiday to cameroon/nigeria.
i got scammed too a couple months ago. it was very devastating. so ive been ver wary bout overseas shipping of any animal. i saw on bidtunnel this person was sellin 2 little marmosets so i tried to warn people bout the scamming and that i read that monkeys cant be shipped overseas for pets and people got soo mad at me sayin i need to leave the persons auction alone and stuff. i didnt say it was for sure a scam i just said they cant be shipped overseas and to be careful. i couldnt beleive how rude people got with me sayin im wrong and to save the whales. i just know that i wish someone warned me bout the scam before it happened. and d marmosets really sell for 70$
I've been in talks with a lady by the name of Ndikum Atusi Elvis in Douala Victoria, Cameroon. Her email is email@example.com. I've been trying to get a Jindo puppy and everything was going good to begin with. Then she sent pictures of the pup who she said was 13 weeks old. I looked at the pics and said to myself that this dog had to be no more than 4 weeks old. It was still very small. So I went on Google Images and searched jindo puppies, and lo and behold the pics she sent where from a website about jindos. Also, the name was different in her emails than on the website. I asked her about it and she said that she didn't like the name and that her husband and her use different names for the dog (c'mon!). So automatically I thought it was a scam, so I pressed the issue to see how they would react. They sent different pics yesterday with this date on the them, 09/08/2009. I dont know how they do things in Africa, so maybe they but the day before the month, whatever. But the pics looked just like the last ones, but the pup still looked really small for that age! Unfortunately I couldn't find any online pics to match with these ones. She said that she will put her dog on a plane Monday morning if I send the $79 thru Western Union. Im at work now researching it all and am glad I have found this website to really illuminate what is going on. So now I know it's a scam, fortunately I haven't paid any money. By the way I put an add on craigslist looking for a jindo and she replied thru there. So if you see that email or ANY correspondence from Cameroon, just flag and delete.
Hi my name is Pam I am in the process of trying to find a puppie for my daugther and I have 2 people from Cameroon trying to send me puppies I asked both of them for the goverment agency to make the arrangements with the one person I told that a dog has to be quartined for 6 months if it's coming from another country and she replied not if it has the proper paperwork I knew it was a scam when I found out it was Africa not Cameron Ca. witch is up by Sacramento. I told her at first I would drive to her boy that would be a long drive. Any way I'm gonna at least have them running to the money gram office a few times insistin that the $ is there the 2 emails are the frist on asked for $120.00 for 2 yorkie puppies firstname.lastname@example.org ph# 0023796195198 and the second one who hasn't ask for any $ yet is for 1 yorkie puppy is ashleySsuzane@yahoo.com her ph # is 01123794588735 thanks for the info and excuse my spelling Pam

Thanks for your interest in my yorkies and I am so glad you emailed in Response to the ad. I want you to know that I and my family (my wife And 3 kids are on a missionary trip to West Africa) along with the 2 Yorkshire terrier Puppies. So later on we notice that the weather here In Africa is very very bad for the puppies to sustain here with us on the missionary trip. So my wife and I decided to ask one of our friend in the state to help us put the advert of the newspaper that we are Looking for someone to adopt our babies to the state back.
I am very glad that you are willing to take care of them and providethem a good and wonderful home. And we're visiting 5 countries. We are giving these puppies out for adoption and we owe you many thanks for caring and asking about them.

We have been praying to have someone who can take good care of them and give them all the love in the world. That's all they want. We're due for more travel to some remote part of West Africa and we Cannot risk taking them along as we know it will have adverse effect on them, health wise. We have sent you pictures of them; please let us know when you receive it. Can you tell us a little bit more about you? Simy is 1.9lbs and while the male Timy weigh 2lbs, both are 14 weeks Old they should be to 3 to 4lb range full grown, they are potty Trained and very friendly with children they fit in the palm of your Hand.

You should see the amount of ads these scamming pricks have on adoos.com
We were after a British Bulldog and spent weeks email different people who would give us their puppies for free, all we had to do was pay shipping! We realised early on it was a scam and had some fun with them!
One person actually said they would ship the puppy for free and we could pay them delivery fee when pup arrived at our door step. Next day we got an email from the "Airport" saying pup was in holding and a release fee had to be paid! Seriously, these people are sick, twisted, pathetic assholes.
I emailed one person saying i knew all about their scam and he deserved to be tourted for taking advantage of animal lovers and he had the nerve to write back saying i "was going to hell" and that i "would witness sudden death in my family"
These people need to be taken down so no more people losing their money expecting pets that don't actually exsist.
I have so many different email addresses for these pricks, they don't use the same one but the message is always along the same line...
They want to know where you live
are you married
do you have kids
why do you want a puppy
what do you do for work
NEVER SEND THEM MONEY - IF IT SOUNDS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT PROBABLY IS!!!!!!!!!!
I received this email from
Thanks for the mail and interest in the little girl. I am sorry for the late response,we were busy trying to get some stuffs for our new home. she is 14 weeks old and her name is Daisy. Daisy is our darling angel girl .We love her so much but its unfortunate that we cant even give her the love and affection we have in our hearts . We are on a volunteer mission to Cameroon together with the UN malaria committee ,in regards to the disease in pregnant women and children. We traveled up here together with Daisy and my daughter. They wont allow Daisy into the country for reason being that, pets are not allowed into the country from other countries and i have been given a maximum of 2 weeks to send her back to the states.The shipping company holding Daisy is GROOME INTERNATIONAL PETS TRANSPORTATION NETWORK(GIPTN) their website is www.giptn.com.so you can contact them to let you know how they will be shipping Daisy back to U.S.A. So that is the reason i have to find for her a home back in the states where she will be showered with all that love and affection. Hope you wont mind if i ask you a few questions:
Do you have kids?
Do you have any experience with puppies?
Are you a breeder or will you breed her in the future if i let you have her?
Will you send us updates about her from time to time and pictures?
I am just being concerned about the type of home she will be going to ,so that is why i am curious to know. We love her so much and we want to make sure she goes to a family that will show them the affection she deserves.. she is health guaranteed,A KC registered and will come along with all its papers,diapers,dog blanket,play toys, and food menu. she is very playful and go along with kids and other home pets.... she love to be held and cuddled and sometimes wants all the attention for her .. So if you can stand the chance of taking her home, you will only need to pay for the crate that will be use to send her to you ok,this money for crate will be paid directly to the airport and the crate fee is $120... But i am sorry i first of all need to know the answers to my questions before i will know if we can proceed with the re-shipping arrangements.Waiting to read from you soonest
IT IS A SCAM.
thanks to this forum I will not be sucked into this.
the person just called me...fucking creepy..I cant believe I gave them my number.
I feel stupid.whatever..at least I know now.
Looks like the puppy scammers have gone quiet for a while...
Not so. I believe I just almost got scammed.
I simply wanted to help these 'nice' people who were '&amp;quot;working for the U.N.&amp;quot; and had to leave for Cameroon. They said they brought their 2-13 wk old Maltese puppies with them , only to discover that &amp;quot;the country wouldn't allow the puppies in&amp;quot; and they had &amp;quot;2 weeks&amp;quot; to send them back.
I said I would take them both. That's when I started getting suspicious. I've traveled a lot and I know that customs does not take credit cards...and you have to pick up live animals...I've never heard of puppies being delivered to your home(?).
I told them I would not give anyone my credit card number over the phone &amp;quot;for the crate which was broken in transit&amp;quot;, and when I had the puppies in hand I would give them a check .
Then I thought:
-if someone is smart enought to &amp;quot;fight malaria in pregnant women for the UN,&amp;quot; shouldn't they be smart enough to ask beforehand if the country accepts dogs in without complications.
Here is the correspondence:

THEY TRYED TO DO THE SAME THING TO ME!!!!
The same thing happened to me. I have been receiving calls from Cameroon all day--allegedly from someone at the airport, and they want me to go to Western Union and pay $160.00 to have the dog sent to the US. Another family e-mailed me the same crap. I'm so glad I checked the airport's website and found all of this information. This is such a shame. Thank God I hadn't sent anything yet. The e-mail I received is word for word the same as one that is listed above. What a waste!
Hi, I got scammed I was looking for a yorkie and I saw this yorkie for free so I e-mailed her and she said all i needed was to pay 110.00 dollars i e-mailed her i'm still waiting for her response. I said i could come pick the dog up by airplane so.. still waiting but heres what the message said.

The reason why am giving the puppy out for adoption is because of the poor health of my son with cancer i have not got the time to provide Haily with the care she need and provide her with her necessities that's why i had been looking for a new home for her that will provide her with all the love i want her to experience . i will like you to promise me that u will provide my little cute Haily with all her needs.. She is a very sensitive baby and possesses the following
-she is house Trained
-she does not bark a lot.
-she eat 3 times daily and at afternoons she drink Milk .
-she is socialized with kids and other house hold pets .

Also I searched her e-mail address up on google and it said she's from mexico, addos, chad, and other countries
SHE IS A SCAM!
OMG! I was in the process of sending money for a Yorkshire terrier but the flight information that was sent to me in the subject field said in regards to your Yorkshire Terrier but in the body of the confirmation is siad in reference to your british bulldog. That's when I got suspicious about the whole thing. I email them back and told them what it said and they told me to call the airport and a number they provided me with but was not the number for the airport on the site. I decided to look up the airport and from page said puppies scam! I guess I was one of the lucky ones that did not get caught. Thanks
I saw an ad in a UK website for free yorkie pups and sent them an email asking if this was an error as they are expensive dogs in the UK. They replied and stated they had to move and their new apartment does not accepted dogs. When they said the cost was in dollars I tried to tell them no as I know the import regulations in the UK and no matter where the animals come from they must have gone through the Pet Passport Scheme which involves taking a blood sample after a rabies vaccine has been given. The time period for this is SIX MONTHS so they cannot guarantee a puppy had gone through this as it would not be old enough. I have had experience with this as I brought two dogs with me from Canada to the UK. These people will try anything to convince you that they know what they are doing and will have the dog(s) delivered right to your home. Do not give them any info or send them any money as they are scammers. If you want a puppy either go to a reputable breeder or your local humane society. Remember if it sounds too good to be true....it is. Two more names to add to the scammers list is Veronica Moore and Vero Hosia. They said the puppies would be shipped from Cameroon.
Just to let all of you out there. The puppy scammers are still at large they almost got me. But I researched on the internet and I call alot of people. They said don't send money. I didn't send any money they called me and I told them they are going to investagated haven't heard back from them sence.They are from Cameroon. There e-mail addresses are (email@example.com) and (firstname.lastname@example.org.) So look out.

email@example.com....ipotetico contatto con lereoporto del camerun
firstname.lastname@example.org...la persona che mi ha sempre contattata....a cui poi ho fatto un bonifico un certo CONRAD FONYUY
email@example.com; ...altro ipotetico contatto con la linea air france che prende in consegna i cuccioli e che ti avvertre che i cuccioli sono fermi in attesa dei documenti......
questa gente sa il fatto suo e sa come truffare le persone...io sono l'ultima oggi ma ce ne saranno tante altre.......io cmq denuncero alla rete tv nazionale questo fatto per vedere se qualcuno puo fermare una volta per tutte questa cosa.....io ci credevo ma alla fine loro mi han detto GRZIE DI TUTTO......che tristezza.....
Save ... I understand that I am the last in order of time to have been swindled by these people .........
their mail is
global.link @ europe.com .... hypothetical contact lereoporto of Cameroon
frank.lezy01 @ yahoo.com ... the person who has ever contacted me .... which then I made a transfer a FONYUY CONRAD
firstname.lastname@example.org; hypothetical ... more contact with the line Air France takes delivery of the puppies and kittens that we avvertre that are still awaiting the documents ......
These people know what's what and how to cheat people ... I am the last Thursday but there will be many more ....... cmq I denounce this fact with the national TV network to see if anyone can stop a once and for all this thing ..... I believed them but in the end they told me GRZIE OF ALL ...... how sad .....
I just got contacted by the same scam artist on CraigsList. What can I do to report them as a scam? Here's the email from them and from me...
While I would love to help you and do pray you find a wonderful home for your pets, I think it would be best for both you and the pups to find placement in TX, with members who remained in the U.S. that are involved in the organization or church you are doing mission work through, or perhaps even place them back with the breeder/agency/previous owner you got them from. Travel of that kind could be quite traumatic and without seeing the pups in person, I am not even remotely interested in putting them through that stress or taking on the potential financial risk should something happen to them en-route. I wish you the best in finding homes for the pups, but be aware that you are likely to be reported due to vicious Cameroon pet animal export scams that have claimed many innocent people of money and ruined their ability to trust in online transactions. It's unfortunate that the airline company that flew you into Cameroon wasn't aware of the country's policy against allowing the importation of animals into the country as it surely would have saved you much heartache and money lost. However, to have taken on the care of such young puppies knowing you'd be committing to such a drastic lifestyle change and moving you to a foreign country that was going to result in removing them from receiving proper health care and vaccination treatment shows a lack of responsibility on your part. It especially doesn't make sense when taking into consideration the questions you have regarding the puppies future lifestyles should I give them a home. Be aware that you may want to contact a rescue organization to assist you because there is a very good likelihood you will be investigated for concern of attempting to operate a scam, however, after doing a moment of research online, I'm sure that none of this information is new to you. I wish you well in your attempts at spreading Good will in Cameroon and should you truly be a resident of TX, perhaps the US will find your work so endearing that they find just cause in relocating you permanently so that you may acquire a legal puppy in your new location.

Subject: Re: female toy poodle
Thanks for the mail and interest in the little puppies. I am sorry for
the late response,we were busy trying to get some stuffs for our new
home. They are both 13 weeks old and their names Lissa(Female) &
Lino(Male). Lissa & Lino are our darling angels. We love them so much
but its unfortunate that we can't even give them the love and
affection we have in our hearts for them. We are on a volunteer
mission to Kribi Island Cameroon together with the UN malaria
committee ,in regards to the disease in pregnant women and children.
We traveled up here together with Lissa & Lino with my daughter. They
won't allow Lissa & Lino into the country for reason being that, pets
are not allowed into the country from other countries and i have been
given a maximum of 2 weeks to send them back to the states where they
came from. So that is the reason i have to find for them a home back
in the states where they will be showered with all that love and
affection. I am resident in Texas but presently in Cameroon. Hope you
wont mind if i ask you a few questions:
-Are You Married?
-Are you a Christian Family?
-Do you have kids?
-Do you Smoke?
-Do you have any experience with puppies?
-Are you a breeder or will you breed them in the future if i let you have them?
-Are you ready for them today?
-Do you have a Phone # I could reach you at?
-Will you send us updates about them from time to time and pictures?
I am just being concerned about the type of home they will be going to
,so that is why i am curious to know. We love them so much and we want
to make sure they go to a family that will show them the affection
they deserve. They are health guaranteed, AKC registered and will come
along with all their papers,diapers,dog blanket,play toys, crate and
food menu. They are very playful and friendly with kids and other home
pets. they love to be held and cuddled and sometimes wants all the
attention for themselves. . So if you can stand the chance of taking
them home, you will only need to buy them a new travel crate because
the one they came in with is bad it will cost just $120 for a new
crate for each of them and $240 for both of them since they shall
travel together but in two separate crates,this money for crate will
be paid directly to the airport to provide the travel crate & you
could have them home with you today if you wish. But i am sorry i
first of all need to know the answers to my questions before i will
know if we can proceed with the re-shipping arrangements..Waiting to
read from you soon..Below are some of their most recent pictures.
