New to the site,great site with great people.But one thing thats really chapping my hide is these "people" who get off trying to scam people. Point in case had a beautiful litter of puppies, bought mine through a breeder on-line thought worked for me might as well try to sell them the same way.First problem I had was I get a guy from "London" who want my whole litter sends me a check for $5,000.00 and wants me to put the dogs on a plane and send him the change. Well reality kicks in and I realize its a scam go to the bank to verify it and low and behold fake check. So where whould my dogs end up? God only knows.But for somebody not "on it" they would be out their puppies and the money they send back in "change". Then I had all my information stole by sombody wanting to sell a Terrior,Bulldog and a Maltese.Problem is I have Akitas, so when these people call I let them know about it to try and save both of us the hassel. The problem lies in the have my name,address,and telephone, their e-maill address. So somebody sends the money to them via some online paying service and expects the dog from me. Dont have it,big scam. So I had to vent about this so I hope nobody else has to deal with this and people these days need different hobbies.

No, not at all, nothing even close and I have been selling puppies via the internet for 5 or more years. If it sound suspicious or too good to be true, it normally is, I am SOOOOOO cautious when dealing with people that 'claim' to be out of the country.
Boxers are like cookies you can't have just one :)
Welcome to TP :) Please post pics of youe Akitas I love that breed :)
Good luck on selling the pups, I've also advertized through the net and have had a couple of problems but through longer and better contact specially though the phone you usually can detect them pretty quickly.
Don't treat your dog human, it will only treat you like a dog.
