Just came across this http://www.blitzclassifieds.com/Tamaska ... 22900.html

Looks like a RP kennel pic.

Yep. That's an RPK puppy.

I imagine someone stole the pic from the internet, made a classified posting and is trying to get someone to send them money for a dog that does not exist.

There's certainly something funny about it all, especially as they are only £180. I cant imagine he has exported breeding pairs to Britain, Australia (as there is someone there advertising Tamaskans, also with the same picture) etc. And surely if these puppies actually exist they would use their own photos of their litters.

That might very well be true. But I think it is still strange that they are all using the same picture.

I think it's all a bit odd.
The price seems suspiciously low - surely anyone would think twice that a new breed is so "cheap".
The phone number seems to be missing quite a few digits too as most area codes are 4-5 digits long followed by a 6-7 digit number - perhaps a scam to encourage email only?
Maybe it's a way to try to con lots of people out of small amounts like a small deposit?

When I started looking for this breed I came across this pic...and a few other with a young woman holding this puppy...I remember it well now! I also remember we discussed the price for this Tamaskan puppy...very cheap :?: and now I am truly happy I kept on digging info and found this forum, Lynn and all of you! :P

Well, if it is, I hope people have enough sense to do some Tamaskan internet searches before sending any money :!:

It sounds like a scam for "deposits"... though such a small amount would surely raise suspicions, who in their right mind could fall for such a trick to pay only £180 for such a rare breed! It could also be an Identity Theft scam for private info, such as Name / Address / Bank Account Numbers / etc. Realistically, I expect it's probably just someone who bred their "wolfyish" looking dog and is trying to get sell their pups by calling them Tamaskans. But, these days identity theft and cash scams are ever-increasing so I wouldn't be surprised. *sigh*

My advice: be wary and stay alert! ;)

In some way you can't blame those bad breeders/puppy mills. As long they have buyers, they are producing puppies :evil:
The puppy buyers keep those puppy mills up and running :(
