    This is crazy I had my heart set on getting the puppies, but somthing told me to do my research...I called the USDA/AND Pblic health they said this is a scam no animals have ever came in from cameroon EVER!!!

    Here is the reply email I got after my puppy inqury...

    Thanks for your interest in adopting this my lovely babies they are still available . i am just so concerned about their welfare and hope you can assure me of that.they home raised, potty trained and well socialized and gets along perfectly with children and other pets.they are pure breed Maltese and AKC registered.their weighs is for the male he is 2.4ibs and the female is 2.5lbs will be approximately 4.2ibs full grown.they are updated on all her shots and will come along with a year health guarantee each.they loves to be carried around and cuddled and full of caressing and kisses. they comes alongside the following
    - A year health guarantee
    -AKC registration papers
    -Pedigree papers
    -Vet record
    -Food samples
    -Puppy toys
    The reason i am giving them out is because they was for me only daughter but she died just some few weeks back of a car accident when she was coming back from school so i don't like see them around me again now because they drive me to think of my daughters dead that is why i will like to give them out for adoption.they really need a home where they will be provided with all their love, care and attention they are being deprived of here.the price list for the that i need from you is as

    however,I will be shipping them from Cameroon Where I am located and i asked the airport if they will be fine with shipping and they said yes . i can have them shipped to you if you can assure me that you will take proper care of them but, answering to the below questions
