ADMIN NOTE: 

There are no such things as free pedigree puppies being available for adoption.  Any animal charity would require a donation of  $100 or more as a gesture of good faith.  You should not buy pets unseen over the internet and always go and visit a reputable breeder in person and actually see the potential pet in it’s environment, and ensure the background source is reputable. Be aware that many pet advertising  could be  false, especially if it suggests payments up front.  Many pet scams are based in Cameroon and equally from Nigeria is we shall see below. You are advised to read text carefully and also do Google image searches on any pet photo you will see. We have some classic examples below.

Larry:

Hi, my name is Larry and I am a currently the new owner of some of my late grandma’s quality dogs. She was a small in-home breeder of quality pups.She died 3 months ago and left behind some female dogs who just had litters of the cute puppies you find on my page.They puppies are so lovely and i need to find them good homes. If you are thinking about adding a pup to your family please make sure you realize that these breeds are a high maintenance dog ! They require a lot of time, and attention and human interaction. All of my pups are raised in my home with our children. They receive a lot of attention and are well socialized. They have also been raised around our cat (Buddy) and should have no problem with other animals.Puppies and mummies spend the first week beside our bed, then they move into the puppy’s room to be at the heart of our home and we start paper training from the day they can walk.
We have been blessed with fifteen beautiful wooded acres so our puppies have lots of room to run.We have a purpose built exercise yard, all dogs have an off lead walk every day as part of the pack as well as a lead walk.We spend 24/7 with our dogs
So if you are interested in providing a lovely home and a bright future for any of my puppies,please i will kindly like to know where you located,Are you interested in adopting a male or female puppy and lastly if this is your first pet?.If is not your first pet,please i hope you don’t mind sending me a pic or video of your previous or present pet so i can see how deep your relationship with dogs are.
Lastly i will like you to take your time and explain to me the type of puppy you are searching for.That is the temperament and characteristics.What you will want from a pet.So please lemme know that i get to know the specific puppy which matches your description and get you info and pics.I hope to read back form you my dear friend

We see this cut and paste text as being West African in origin. More likely to be NIGERIAN but equally from the pet scam hub of CAMEROON.
We checked the following images on the Facebook page. We found then used in a genuine advertisement and they are stolen.

 

We sent another message to the scammer and obtained the reply below. It included the photos shown in our slider.

Miss, xxxxxxx hope you are aware you are about to make a very important decision in your life.

This vaccine overrides the maternal antibodies to allow her puppy to make her own antibodies to the Parvo disease, including both Parvo A and Parvo B strains. We also de-worm her with two different products to ensure that parasites do not develop resistance to one wormer. We vaccinate her against kennel cough (Bordatella), distemper, measles and adenovirus-2 (an upper respiratory ailment). So i assure you Cindy is free from all disease and should you be adopting her,you will be adopting a healthy puppy.

We thought it was a Great Dane! Somehow it became a French Bulldog. Please also note that good puppies are most often sold at around 8 weeks of age and you could ask why it is still unsold at 15 WEEKS.
