*Greetings to you from the house of the lord,
How are you today, hope fine? thanks for your urgent response and interest in taking and creating a good home and care for our babies and i hope their save will be fine with you.My adorable Yorkshire Terrier (puppies) are still very much available for adoption. they are 18weeks old and both home trained and outdoor trained also playful with other animals and kids. The male named (cached) weigh 2lbs and the female named (Terra) weigh
2.5lbs and will weigh big when fully grown. they are both AKC registered and shots are given up to date and both home trained. both of them are my darling sweetheart and super spoiled! They both have a sweet personality and loves to play and be carried around.
All papers will accompany the puppies when shipped to you, Due to our long staying over here in Africa, and the bad weather my wife and I have concluded to get good home and care for our babies. We are not charging or selling them to you for money but to save their life’s saved and care for them so this means that, you and i will be paying for the shipment of the puppies to you. they are VET checked, but right now we are
in Africa on a Christian mission with my wife and 3 kids together with Terra and Cached, we have the puppies right here with us.
We are going to ship to you via a Diplomatic Courier Service Company with Express Delivery on next day delivery, if you are really interested in having my little babies, i want you to get back to me with your full Name, Home Address, direct contact phone number and name of the nearest Airport to you. Please if you know that you are not capable of taking very good care of my babies, do not reply me because i am giving them out because of bad condition and we’re spending months for the christian mission and i don’t Terra and Cached to die in this bad weather. And because we don’t have time
to take care of them due to the missionary work before us here. They are priceless to me,therefore i am giving both for free, so i will like you to get back to me with your full name and full address including your nearest airport so that i can find out shipping cost, I want you to know that you and i are paying for the shipping cost of the puppies shipment to you.
I’ve attached pics of Cached and Terra.
