Sad I don't know if I got scammed

Hello to everyone that might be reading this. I apologize ahead of time if this post is too long or hard to understand, but I am currently in a situation not knowing what to do and I need to share it.

First of all, I live in Honduras, Central America, so in legal terms, there is not much I can do to hold people accountable or be compensated for anything.

Yorkies are a very uncommon dog bread in my country. I've been wanting one fot the longest time and I've had to be very patient to be able to find one. I have a male cocker spaniel that is like a son to me, so I've been looking for a female Yorkie because I think it would be a better fit for my alfa male son. A couple of months ago I contacted a person that posted an ad, but he only had male yorkies, so I decided to pass and wait till I found a girl. This guy even dropped the price for me to take the male, he sent me pictures of the pup, the parents etc. i decides to pass.

I finally found an ad for yorkies being sold. They told me they only had one male left when I called. I said I wasn't interested in a male and left it at that. Later that day they contacted me and told me they had a female yorkie for me, but she was in a different city and that they could have her delivered to my city.

They sent me pictures of the puppy and asked for a deposit so I could reserve her. I paid for the deposit and after that they said that they would get her ready to send her by bus to my city the next day, but I had to pay the full amount before they sent her off. I agreed and asked for more pictures. They sent me the pics, but in these, the dog looked a little different, shorted her and thinner snoutc I called the guy and asked why she looked different and he said it was probably the angle and lighting of the pic, that it was the same puppy from before. I let it go, deposited the full amount and had the dog delivered to me.

I waited the whole afternoon for the puppy to ger here, it was a 5 hour trip. When I finally get her I notice a different looking puppy. She was definitely the puppy from the last pics they sent, but different from the ones I had seen previously. At first I was having doubts on wether they lied about her age, because this is a very small dog that looks about 5 weeks old, and doubt if that is the reason why she doesn't entirely look like a yorkie and more like a yorkie-chihuahua sort of mix. But after browsing the internet and asking around, everyone is telling me that she looks mixed.

I texted the guy and he assured she is pure bred and that I can get her pedigree in a few months. He proceeds to send me pics of the dogs he claims are the parents and guess what, its the same pics from the guy I had previously talked to a few weeks ago and only had male dogs. So, I text the guy and told him the story and asked if he was in any way related to the people that had sold me the puppy. He told me that he had nothing to do with the puppy, that the dogs they claimed to be the parents were his dogs, but that that puppy was not one their dogs. He sent me more pics and videos of his dogs and told me he was upset that someone else was using his pictures and advised me to report them in several forums and facebook pages and ask for my money back.

I texted the guy that sold me the puppy and he said that he assures me the dog is purebred and that I shouldn't worry. But that if I was unsatisfied he was going to solve the issue, though he didn't specify how exactly. He said he would call me tomorrow and that I should please take care of the dog in the meantime (as if I wasn't going to do that &#128580

So now, I'm here with this little puppy that went through a horrible 5 hour trip just to get to me, and I feel horrible. She is cute and lovely, but I paid a lot of money and waiting very long for a purebred yorkie. I'm really upset at how irresponsible this people are. I don't know if the puppy is purebred, but why the fake pictures?? Why would anyone do this? What should I do? I don't know if I can commit to keeping the puppy when she isn't what I paid for, but can I really just send her back like she is a defected item. I feel horrible and I hate this people for making me feel this way.

Oh gosh, so sorry about all of this.

Can you post a pic of the puppy? Purebred yorkies often do kind of look like chi mixes when they're puppies bc their hair is more smooth when young puppies. So, this still could be a purebred.

Welcome to YT, I m so sorry that you "may" have been scammed. It is very hard to give back a baby puppy once you have held it and cared for it, but I do understand you want what you paid for. Do you have pictures so we may see what the puppy looks like, although it is hard to determine the breed via a photo. If you are set on a yorkie, paid the price for pure breed, you must close your heart and return the puppy. Please try to post pictures, maybe our members can help.

Hello! Thanks for the replies! Those above are the pictures of the puppy

Our first night went well, she is honestly the sweetest and very smart, very sensitive to sounds and very alert of her surroundings even though she looks veeery young, so I think there is at least some yorkie blood in there, lol.

This is her with my cocker spaniel, as you can see she is veeeery small.

I don't know if I got scammed-img_1698.jpg

These are pics that they sent me before I saw her. Clearly, a different dog. So even if she does turn out to be a purebred, I was definitely lied to.

Yes please do post pics. And I would press hard for those registration papers. What registry did the seller claim she was registered with?

I cant stand scammers and I sure hope that is not what happened here

There she is. At this point I'm convinced she is not purebred. We are currently in the waiting room at the vet and everyone has asked me what kind of mix she is.

Well people do bad things. I don't think I could send the pup back to those awful people because they will probably do the same thing to another person and the poor pup is going to just keep getting passed around.

Hi, so we just got back from the vet and its bad...

He says its definitely not a purebred, but that's not the worse part. She is way too young to have been separated from the mother. She may get sick, if she isn't already. The vet refused to even give her anything because he said he couldn't be held accountable for anything that may be happen to her and that the scammers should be responsible. He told me to send her back as soon as possible and ask for a full refund. He gave me a note stating that the dog is way too young and doesn't have yorkie common characteristics.

I guess I'll try sending pics through link since I'm not sure wy the ones I've posted are not seen yet.

This is truly heartbreaking, such irresponsible breeding, I can't even wrap my head around the whole thing.

Hi There,
So very sorry this is happening to you. Hope it turns out like you want it to. Will you please keep us updated on what is happening with this? I hope the puppy is really a Yorkie for his sake as well as yours.

I just learned that since my account is new, all my posts are getting reviewed before being posted, thats why its taking so long for me to reply. I have tried to post pics and updates qithout success. Basically what has happened is:

- confirmed at the vet she is not a purebred
- vet said she is way younger than I was told, she shouldn't have been separated from mom for another month. She is at risk of getting sick and dying.
- she is too young to have gotten the vaccines they say they applied, puts her health and life at risk
- the breeder has taken responsibility claiming that he got lied to himself about the age and breed of the dog. He says he trusted his cousin who is also a breeder and he scammed him.
- He takes full responsibility and has promised to replace with a purebred and he wants me to send the puppy back
- I have decided to go to his town (4 hour drive) and return the puppy myself as I am afraid of sending the puppy by bus since she is so fragile
- I want my money back and hopefully when I go there tomorrow its what I will get, since I don't trust him to receive another dog from him
- I feel really bad for the puppy, but at this point I don't know what to do but to return her since her health is at risk
