"Tamaskan" Puppy Scam in India

Hey all,

I'm not sure where to put this, but I just found out that a puppy mill called Tegha Kennel in India (most Kennels are puppy mills here) is claiming to sell Tamaskan puppies here. This is an outright scam since the puppy is very clearly just a husky or husky/mal mix at most, and nowhere in the TDR did I find a single registered breeder in India. It seems these guys just Googled "dogs that look like wolves", sourced a husky puppy and slapped the name Tamaskan onto it.

The more I read about this the more enraged I feel, and the sadder I feel for the poor sap who actually falls for this and gives their money to a con-artist like this.

Ohh that is annoying, but thanks for bringing it to our attention. Hopefully no one will get scammed.

Honestly, knowing how we are in India, I wouldn't put it past my countrymen to just get this because they think its a "rare breed" when its just a husky.

As well as not actually being a tamaskan, the price is really weird?? I looked on Google for to see the price in Australian dollars, and it's less than $20????

The thing is, while its really cheap in AUD, a little under 2 lakh INR is incredibly expensive over here as for many people that could literally mean their annual salary. Now while the people who'll even be considering buying this puppy will be more on the higher end of the socio-economic ladder, it's still very expensive. Most puppies sold here are around 20-25k INR approx, with the price peaking 1 lakh for exptremely "rare" breeds. Huskies can be sold for anywhere between 50-85k INR.
