Woman duped by 'Great Dane' sellers

BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

Harley Davidson is the newest addition to Tammy Carter's family.

The 5-week-old puppy is still getting accustomed to his new home.

"His loveliness and he's a mama's boy through and through," Carter said.

He's almost everything Carter wanted, except there's one major problem. When she bought him she thought she was getting a pure bred Great Dane puppy. Instead, she said she got duped.

"I was like, there's something wrong with these papers because the date on them said 2008. That threw up a red flag right there," Carter said.

She found Harley online and for $350 he came with an American Kennel Club Certification that he was a full-blood Great Dane.

When she checked the papers and called the AKC she soon learned they were fake,

"She looked up the people's names and she was like, 'We have no Ruth Anderson or Kevin Anderson in our system whatsoever,'" Carter said.

Carter got the police involved because of the forged papers. She learned the two people who sold her the dog used fake names and a bogus address.

"I'll be glad when justice is served," she said.

Harley is obviously a part of the family now and the Carters have no plans to get rid of him because they said he's too darn cute. However, they do want to know exactly what kind of breed he is so they plan to have a DNA test done.

She said finding Harley has been a win-win. He's a good puppy who she hopes will help expose the scam.

"Just beware. Check your paperwork, do your investigations. I feel like a private investigator now trying to find all the information out," Carter said.
