A Canadian County resident reported to the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Unit that they had responded to an internet website identified as sweetestfrenchbulldogs.com and had ordered a French Bull Dog puppy from the website after communications. The website person indicated that upon receipt of $600.00 they would ship them a 11week old puppy, and that they were located in Wylie, TX. They also stated that the shipping was included in that price. This is a Fraud and the victim has been unable to get anyone from the website or phone number to respond.

Investigation by the CCSO Criminal Investigation Unit has shown that the phone number is a computer IP phone and the address listed is false. Lt. Mike Grimes stated they have seen a number of frauds associated with the internet purchase of puppies. He stated that personal on site contact is the safest method to buy animals. He advised if the price is too good, or shipping is free, those are immediate indicators of possible fraud.
