Anyone who wastes that much money to buy a pet deserves to be scammed. Donate your money to a more worthy cause.

Who buys a dog online from Africa. And really, the humane society has dogs you can get for less than $100.

I've seen ads online at for "free pets". I emailed because I was interested in a persian kitten. They emailed me back, the kitten was free, but the person was a missionary in Africa and shipping was going to be $1400. They had a story of they didn't realize their cat was pregnant when they left the U.S.and they only wanted to find good homes for the kittens. They didn't want to charge anything, but shipping was so high. Needless to say, I didn't get a kitten, I figured it was some kind of scam. Don't animals have to be quarntined for a certain amount of time before they can go from one country to another? Can't believe she fell for it.
