Type of a scam Online Purchase

I was looking on Hoobly for a Great Dane puppy in Indiana where I live. I saw his ad that he was from South Bend, IN with 2 puppies. I contacted him via text and email. He now says he lives in Georgia and I have to pay him through a mail-order/delivery business. He has not shown me pictures of puppies except the one on Hoobly. I looked into his username on Hoobly and he has posted10 Hoobly ads all saying the same thing for 9 different breeds. He only does delivery and you have to pay the swerve first. Here are a few lines of our email from the seller:

Thanks for emailing in regards to our puppies we have two puppies available and they are both a male and a female .Our family takes great care to make sure these puppies are very socialized and come with all up to date shots and also seen by our Vet before going to their new homes.the puppies are just 12 weeks 2days old,vet checked, good temperament with kids and other pets.we exercise regularly and take the puppies always for a walk!our puppies are raised in the same home and environment. We are giving them out because they were owned by our mom who just passed away of cancer and there is nobody to care for them anymore since we are busy at work, so i took them along with me to my state to look for a great and splendid home for them this listing is posted all over because we need an urgent home so please don’t ask why it’s posted in your area, we are not asking much nor selling them but we ask just $500 each for someone nearby and from far distance is $600 which include delivery and paperwork.
