Searched on-line to purchase a Shetland Sheepdog puppy. Found "Jiminies Shetland Sheepdog Kennels" website and entered into an agreement to purchase a puppy for $700, which included purchase price of dog and shipping via air transportation. Required money via MoneyGram.
After sending $700 a representatives called them to state that $1,200 dollars more needed to be sent for Insurance before shipping. Advised this amount would be refunded once the dog arrives safely in our home. We contacted local law enforcement and did not send the additional money.
