French Bulldog Puppy for sale Newark, New Jersey. Mariah Elsa posted 4 French Bulldogs for sale for 300 dollars plus 150 shipping charge. Always communicated by email never by phone. Asked them to send a video of the dog and they did asked for better pictures and they did that also. We paid them the 350, in return we got flight information. The day of the flight we were told the dog was traveling from Newark to Charlotte NC. When the dog reached NC, we were told he needed an air conditioned crate for an additional 610 of which the breaker would pay 250 and we would cover the 360. Really wanting the pup and the documentation they sent sounded legitimate. We paid the 360 later that evening they said they hadn’t received the payment by Cashapp which they did. The next morning we went to the airport to pick up the dog and American airlines told us no dogs were shipped from Newark on the flight number we were given and that there isn’t an "additional" fee for a crate. It is a one time charge and they inform you ahead of time, not when it reaches the first transfer flight. We emailed them at the airport with no response. Later that day we get an email stating that the dog is in Pittsburgh and that they need additional money to get the dog to our location. We told them we weren’t comfortable sending any more money and that was the last we have heard from them.
