Replace Milo

I just want to say, before making a financial contribution, what we want above all else is a corgi, tri color desired, but most importantly, a healthy pup. So if you have a contact, have the means, then ultimately that is the quest of this posting.

Back story: if you were drawn in by Milo's photo, you're not the only one. My husband and I were finally able to financially support our 15 year old daughter, Sara, get the pup of her dreams - Milo - just to discover the whole process was a scam. A contract in caring for a full breed corgi was completed, a Zelle transaction of $770 to purchase Milo - completed, then we were hit with a "refundable" crate fee of $1800 which was never discussed. Further research and more stalling from the seller concluded with us learning the whole thing was a scam. So we are out the money (so far - our bank is attempting to retrieve the funds), but the bigger disappointment was for Sara who was preparing for Milo's arrival: buying pup toys, getting a variety of leashes from her grandma's storage closet of pets since passed ... in other words, nesting and preparing for Milo's arrival. We filed a report with the FBI cyber crime after Milo was offered for sale to our faimly friend who was helping us gather more evidence of wrong doing.  So back to square one - finding a corgi pup, that is "attempting" to find a corgi pup. According to the American Kennel Club, a corgi pup can cost from $600 to $1,000. My husband wants to avoid any form of shipping and here, in California, we are either not getting responses from kennels because pups are all spoken for (adpoted out), or the fee now is quadrupled ($4,000 - $4500 the highest yet).  So we are asking for $5,000 to cover the purchase of a corgi pup, and to cover unexpected expenses including initial vet expenses.

As previously stated, our first option would be to have a healthy corgi pup ready for pick up ... even for shipping.

Thank you for your time and consideration of this request.
