On April 16, I finally found a dog that our 6-year-old boy really liked.
However, it was in Fresno, but the owner said he would ship the dog.
I confirmed they had the shipping. The dog was going to fly from Fresno to New Mexico. The plane was scheduled to come in at 7:30 a.m., so the family, 1-year-old toddler and 6-year-old boy loaded up at 4 a.m. to make it on time. We were waiting at the airport when I received a phone call about the dog being grounded in Texas because of pet control. To make sure the dog arrived safely, we needed to pay an insurance claim of $2,000 for the dog to arrive today.
So here we stand at the airport with a 6-year-old crying his eyes out because the dog he liked was not going to arrive, and he wasn’t going to get a puppy that day like he was told. These scammers broke a little boy’s heart, and I want our dog lovers and parents to be aware of this scam so they don’t have to go through the same heartbreak we got that day.
Never miss a local story.
