Hi my name is Munemi Miller,
We are traveling out of the state for a week, and have 2 small puppies and one husky puppy.
Unfortunately, since we are int the military we are on a very tight budge.

Please contact us, we would like to know what your prices are.

Thank you!
Sincerely,
Munemi

It's only a scam if they want to send you an overpayment and have you pay the extra to somewhere else or back to them. (i.e. cash a bad check, pay them real money with it, and then it bounces are you are out that money).

scams - they always want to know to know your location, and they hardly ever give you the dog's name, and there are always lots of misspellings in the email. They also offer you a large weekly rate.
Remember - if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is! Always look their name up on the internet for scams

And who brings 3 puppies into their home? You usually acquire puppies either individually or as a pair and you don't normally acquire small dog puppies and husky puppies in close proximity. It's possible but it sure sends a red flag to me!

I vote scam.

Your prices are right on the website and if I had this complicated situation, I would have called you.
