A few weeks ago, I got a call from a friend of mine (Peter) in Maryland that his friend had just purchased an Irish Wolfhound pup for $1000 from a lady in NC but he had concerns. (His friend knows nothing about dogs and when I heard he had bought a Wolfhound, I was really worried) Below is my understanding of what happened: Friend finds puppy on eBay. (I know, I know) Lady says pups are 8 weeks old. Wires $500 deposit via Western Union. Makes arrangements to meet her a week and half later. The lady met them in a parking lot of Petsmart. She said he couldn't see the mother as she had already sold her. Said this was the last pup and she was the runt. She was accompanied by a large, intimidating man with tattoos that made Peter and friend uncomfortable to walk away from the sale and she said deposit was non refundable. They take puppy and return to Maryland. Peter comments puppy is very small and has a very small bark. They send me some really bad pictures and I said I couldn't really tell anything but that she looked like a Wolfhound pup...maybe the lady got the age wrong. Contacts lady - she tells them pups are now 8 weeks old - friend says but you said that 2 weeks ago? Back and forth with me via texts - not happy, not convinced is Wolfhound. Tries contacting "breeder" again - this time number is disconnected and email bounces. After 2 1/2 weeks - Peter's friend says puppy is aggressive and unmanageable and he is going to have it put down! Peter takes puppy and contacts me very unhappy and unsure what to do with her. We drive to meet them almost in Maryland and I pick her up. She should by this first account between 8-10 weeks old depending on which date you believe. She looks like a mini Wolfhound. We bring her home and I notice that her teeth are TINY...they are there but teeny squeeny incisors - I am thinking she is really young maybe? She weighs 13lbs... We then see what turns out to be her sister advertised on Craigslist - owner says she was told a lady using the same name told her she rescued 4 Wolfhound pups when the mom and 4 pups were killed...that she made a midnight run to save them - real heartstring puller. Says her pup should be 12 weeks old. The story just keeps getting stranger and more convoluted. So I have this adorable pup but no idea what or how old she is? Then one night I am showing a friend her teeth and I notice something - THEY ARE FALLING OUT AND HER ADULT TEETH ARE COMING IN! This means she has to be at least 4.5 - 5 months old?? She even has her premolar 1....oh boy.... I couldn't believe it - but have been watching for the last week and yep - she is that old. So now I have no idea what she is - obviously some type of terrier mix - Parsons Jack Russel maybe? She has been with me for almost 3 weeks and has put on 4 lbs so I am guessing she will be 25lbs or so as an adult... Hmmmmmmm - strange but true....LOL...some Wolfhound! Either way she is a sweetie and if you know of anyone wanting to adopt a truly adorable little girl - let me know!
