With so many scams now frequently in the online space, how can you wade through the noise and find a legitimate business?
We at Pocket Puppies have been breeding since 2006 and like you, have observed how the world has moved more online and intangible, therefore difficult to notice the validity of someone or a business. We have heard many stories over the past years of heartbreak and disappointment.
That is why we have created this page with 6 Checkpoints to help you find some clarity and shine a light on our authenticity.
1. Paypal - What is PayPal and how can it help you?
PayPal is an online payment system that makes paying for things online and sending and receiving money safe and secure.
When you link your bank account, credit card or debit card to your PayPal account, you can use PayPal to make purchases online with participating stores. PayPal serves as a middleman between your bank and merchants and keeps your payment information secure.
Paypal's Buyer Guarantee Programme
PayPal's Buyer Protection programme entitles you to reimbursement for the full purchase price of the item plus the original shipping costs you paid, if any, when you don't receive your item from a seller, or when you receive an item, but the item isn't what you ordered.
2. A Veterinary Clinic is not going to assist a scam - contact ours to verify us.

4. The ABN lookup tool, every legit business has an ABN - Search Ours

5. We have been featured in the Bendigo newspaper for our donated therapy dog
Youth Mental Health is a cause that is close to our hearts and the healing of a therapy dog is something we have experienced personally, one of the reasons we donated, Hulli to The Headspace foundation. We were featured alongside the Headspace team, Bendigo Mayor to celebrate Hulli's first birthday.
