Good grief

A Dorchester neighbor spotted this sign on Park Street on Wednesday.  The sign reads: There are no puppies here! You have been scammed.  See sign below posted by Janelle Nanos (Globe reporter and Dorchester resident) on twitter:

Well, Janelle did her own investigation and its seems the family who posted the said sign at two kids show up at their door on Easter Sunday looking to pick up a Patricia Teacup Yorkie puppy. The owner of the home had to break the very sad and disappointing news to the children.

Evidently, puppy scams are a thing.  The New York Times recently wrote about this situation.

Here is some information to help you spot a puppy scam from the American Kennel Club.
