UPDATED 2-2-2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The website http://www.welvpets.com, as well as it's mirror site, http://www.weluvpuppies.com is using many stolen pictures from various dog related websites without permission.  Below are "some" of the pictures that were stolen.  Even though we (owners of the stolen pictures) repeatedly asked that our pictures be removed.........our wishes are being ignored and, in fact, a couple of us have even been threatened.
 

The first picture they say is their stud dog Snoopy or Bear when, in actuality, this dog's name is Teddy who is a "neutered" beloved pet that I sold several years ago.  His picture can be seen on my Extended Family page and then click on the "Lucci, Teddy, and Charlie" link on the left hand side.  This is copyright infringement.
 Maltese Puppies / puppy available for pets  

This picture is being used on the mirror site of welvpets.com which is weluvpuppies.com.  The actual link to this page has, for the time being, been severed, however, the page is still available at http://www.weluvpuppies.com/maltesesbaby.htm

The picture actually is the headline picture on my "Available Puppies" page.  The puppy on the left, "Peanut", can be found throughout my website and the puppy on the right, who I called Elvira was in my first Charm and Cruiser litter.

 

 

This picture which is being used on both welvpets.com and weluvpuppies.com, in actuality; belongs to Chrisman Maltese
   
The three pictures above have been stolen from TaLin Maltese and are being used on the http://www.WeLvPets.com  website without permission.  On the mirror site http://www.weluvpuppies.com she has the below pictures although she has currently removed the link to them.  All of the TaLin Maltese pictures have a red frame around them.
   

ALL of these cute framed pictures of puppies (above) that are portrayed as being "We LV PETS" puppies on their Maltese Mom's and Baby's page, actually belong to Cogin's Maltese and are being used without permission..............yet another case of copyright infringement.

 

On their "How they are born" page ALL of the pictures actually come from http://www.dogbreedinfo.com and can be seen in the whelping section of that website at http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/whelpingpictures.htm .........again........without permission!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALL of the poodle pictures on the welvpets mini teacup poodle page actually came from a Polish Poodle website which can be seen by clicking here.

Some of the Yorkie pictures on their Yorkie page actually can be found in their original context at http://www.pricelessyorkies.com .  These are all being used without permission.  The owner of the pictures actually thought she had safeguarded her pictures against being stolen by implementing "No Right Click".
 

I am sure you can get the picture here of what is going on !!!!! (pun intended)
These are all cases of copyright infringement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have to wonder WHY they are using other people's pictures, instead of their own, especially with all of the current puppy selling scams on the internet.
Do they really have puppies for sell???????

Please be informed and do not be taken in by these or any other puppy selling scams.
If it looks too good to be true, it probably is!!!!

The internet has brought in a whole new way for people to purchase puppies and other goods.  It has made those hard to find objects much easier to find with just the push of a key or by simply entering a word into a search engine.  It also makes "Buyers Beware" an even more important term than ever before with all of the new puppy buying and selling schemes.

Ads such as the ones below are rampant on many puppy selling sites.  These are/were the actual ads that used my pictures that were found on Puppyfind.com.

PLEASE NOTE:  The below ads are not puppies that I have for sale but are actual ads found on puppyfind.com using stolen pictures from this website of my previous puppies.

What you may not realize is that all of the pictures used in the ads above were "borrowed" (stolen) without permission from this very website.  There are countless other ads that use "borrowed" (stolen) photographs from many other websites.  Sad to say, "borrowing" (stealing) other people's photographs from websites is very common to those with the puppy selling schemes. 

There is a very interesting website that concerns Puppyfind.com and the many puppy sellers on the site which can be seen at http://www.puppyfindsucks.com .  Anyone searching for a puppy on the internet should read this website first.

Other articles concerning Puppyfind.com;

When I contacted one of the "sellers", telling them to take my picture out of their ad, I received the following response, spelling errors, bad grammar  and all:

Hello,
compliment of the season,My pet babies have been all adopted by one mrs jennifer sunter from los angeles california, hopefully i will be having a new litter by march or april this year,but i can refer you to one of my customer that just got posted to west africa by his company here in united state(chevron)he asked me to put two adorable pet babies he got from me before he was posted for adoption,the baby pet are both 3 months old and are akc registered, send him an email immediately to him concerning adopting the pets,tell him the breeder he asked to put the baby out for adoption refered you to him,already the lovely babies are already with him,send to Pastor Mike and his email address is:
pastor_mike_john@yahoo.com i think this could be the best way to get him direct.
remember to contact me as soon as you get the puppies
Thanks.

This was obviously one of the "Nigerian" puppy selling/buying internet scams that we have heard so much about recently.

 

In Conclusion.......Please beware of websites claiming to be selling puppies with "borrowed" pictures from other dog breeders websites.  These tactics are often used to insinuate/misrepresent the general puppy buying public that the pictures are actual pictures of their dogs!!!!


MALTESE PUPPY BUYERS BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!
