I think that is pretty common for mills to pass off mixes as purebred dogs, I had one lady inquire with our local havanese meet up group claiming to own a havanese, but the picture of the dog...I'm thinking its a 'poo' mix of some sort and was lied to. I think she believed she bought one, but I'd put my $ against it.

Thank you all for your concern, that is her on the puppyfind.com website. I called her and pretended to be interested in buying a dog and she said her name is Shari Cole. I asked her for her address and she hesitated but did give it to me.
She said she sells them cheaper because people in Alabama don't want to spend much.
Any suggestions as what we should do next??

Now that you have the address, have your sister send her a letter, "return receipt requested", that way she will know if Shari received it, and let her know that she lived up to her end of the bargain with the neutering and would like to have the papers she was promised. She should probably send proof of the neutering too. She should also mention all the issues she had with the puppy and vet bills, although I'm sure Shair won't care. Good luck with you quest.

My sister took all of the information to the Arab Police Department this morning and has filed a report. I will keep this forum posted as to what happens next.

I don't know, those cheesy photos where they dress up puppies in jewelry and boas drive me nuts. Forget stacking-throw a hat on that puppy and let's move this merchandise!
