Dog Broker in Canada getting dogs from US -- Please circulate these videos!
as posted on craigslist in Vancouver, BC:
Dog Rescuers Beware
I know most dog rescuers scan Craigslist, so please stop allowing scammers to take US dogs and broker them in other countries.
Cold Noses Warm Beds is a "rescue" located in Langley, BC. They work with various L.A. based rescue groups to bring dogs from California to B.C. to rehome them. The dogs are pulled from shelters and most of the people in the U.S. believe that they are doing good things. But CNWB is selling dogs with no home checks, no name checks, nothing.
The woman in this video gave a false name, false email, false address. Nothing about her story was true. She purchased 2 dogs from CNWB and immediately took them to the vet, where one needed surgery to help an infected neuter site. She told CNWB that the dogs were for an elderly, immobile father for his 70th birthday as a surprise for him (rescuers worst nightmare) and she was given 2 dogs with NO hassles.
The operator of CNWB then posted that the dogs were going to "a family home where they will work in agility". This is NOT true. The 2 dogs in this video, Pepe and Tiny, are long gone now and are safe and sound.
This is NOT rescue and this needs to be stopped. I'd also like to point out that this woman is NOT affiliated with the BCSPCA as she states in the video.
Please, send this out to as many people as you can, this MUST be stopped.
