Video Report: Watch Out for Dog-Flipping Scams


Written by: Phil Monahan

Here’s a remarkable story from Indianapolis of a dog-flipping scam that almost worked. When Rosie, a Miniature Schnauzer, wandered away from her owner, a chain of events was set in motion that highlights the pernicious increase in a relatively new crime: dog-flipping. This is when someone claims a dog as their own and then turns around to sell it to make a profit.

Watch the above video to see how one such dog-flipper worked her scam but was then foiled by a persistent citizen who wanted to see Rosie go back to her rightful owner. Bravo to Wiley Brown! The only part that’s left out is whether or not the perpetrator will pay for her actions.
