    How to Spot a Puppy Scam Online

    Dog Works Radio is hosted by Robert and Michele Forto and takes listeners into the scruffy, curious, and sometimes heroic world of dogs. Let's dive into the delightful and surprising look at our relationship with our K9 Buddies.
    Did you know puppy scammers post fake litters online or pretend to be someone they’re not (usually an existing breeder) to take advantage of puppy sales (sans the puppies.) This means that if you aren’t careful, you could find the perfect puppy, send the ‘breeder’ your money, and never receive a puppy or any follow-up communication in return.
    Of course, Christmas is a big time for adding a new puppy to the family. While we do not recommend this, we will give you some tips and tricks to avoid a puppy scam online. Thanks to our friends from the American Kennel Club and the Dog Writers Association of America for helping us out on this episode.
