FYI-I got contacted by this person through a Facebook group. This person said she saw I was interested in a Cavalier Puppy, claimed they were in Austin TX and had only 2 pups left, and immediately asked for a deposit.
I inquired about pricing health she/he quoted me $650 1st Red Flag
I again asked for info on health of pups/parents she said parents & pup look healthy 2nd Red Flag
Requested more pics of parents/pups and their location. No response 3rd Red Flag
Knowing something wasn’t right I was going to forget it but thought NO I should look into this and tried to contact them one more time. When I went to respond it now said Facebook User unavailable (see below) and all conversations had been deleted 4th and FINAL Red Flag. Their entire Facebook profile and message history has now been deleted. Too bad for them I screenshotted most of the conversation. I have pics of the pups, and their profile picture realizing they probably were fakes or stolen.
Losing our Cav was hard enough it’s like losing a family member then we have to put up with this CRAP. NO! The steps to find another Cav have been tedious and I thank everyone on this board for their comments and friendly suggestions. I am posting this to hopefully spare someone else this grief. Also, I pray these are not pics of someone else’s dog that would really suck too. If this person/persons are somehow legit then my mistake (I doubt it)
We will continue our search, but please share this with anyone you see fit. Mahalo
