So, we got this puppy from a guys mom & her boyfriend that we know.
This was 2 weeks ago and the whole experience of getting the puppy was a bit frustrating.
They wanted to make sure he transitioned well. So they had us take him a total of i think 3-4 times over night then take him back to them for a day...
They originally i guess also put an add out on craigslist for the pups and said there was a re-homing fee of 25 dollars and included a bag of food.
We gave them 25 dollars and not once throughout the time of us interacting with them for 2 weeks did they ever mention any other cost.
Friday, they dropped the puppy off and we chatted for about 30-45 minutes in my house. Again, not once did they mention another cost.
Saturday, AFTER he was officially ours for good, the guy calls me on my cell and sounded for hesitant and sketchy almost saying he never got the $17 dollars.
I said my fiance gave them $25 dollars which is what they asked for. And he said oh no that was for the dog food. the 17 is for the deposit on the dog.
Okay, i am fine paying 17 dollars, im not saying its expensive because it isnt, i feel like they are pulling one over on us. No we would of course pay the 17 and 25 but they never ever mentioned it to us and its weird.
He told us since the dog is free, we just ask you pay 25 as a deposit towards the dog and the food.
Keep in mind each time we have picked the dog up and dropped him off and i had texted the woman MANY many times this was never mentioned to us.
It's just strange.
I told my fiance to ask the woman at his work who also got 2 of the puppies if they charged her this and if so when did they tell her.
Marley was already in our full possession and officially ours to keep and then AFTER that they mentioned it to us..
just, really weird.

That is very odd...almost like a con except a con for a total of 42 dollars plus that you got a bag of food .LOL Weird but I would ignore any more calls or texts from them.They may just be confused and scattered or they could be planning to hit you up for more small amounts. Enjoy your new puppy.
