I live in Las Vegas, Nv. I found Bienca Marcuccino's ad on the Internet for CHAMPION BLOODLINE AKC X-TINY CHIHUAHUAS, 7wk old, in several web sites. She had ads in 11 puppy sale Websites.

I flew to Texas, rented a car, and purchase two beautiful tiny little black chihuahua's from her, 1-boy, 1-girl, $700.00 each. The ad said they were 7 weeks old.

She said the AKC papers had not arrived yet and she would mail them to me as soon as she received them.

As I was leaving, I ask their date of birth. She said January 7,2006. Her ad was dated 2-11-06. I bought them Feb 17th, 2006.

After I flew back to Las Vegas, Feb 18th, I did the math. These puppies were only 5wks old. NO WONDER THEY WERE SO TINY!

After several weeks I called her Cel phone and home phone and left several messages on each asking her where the papers were. I never got a reply. Finally, I got messages on both numbers that they had been disconnected.

I had saved an ad that Bianca said was her "husband's ad" since they both had the same email address. His ad was in Ft Worth Star Telegram, and to call Matt Bachman. His ad said AKC Chihuahuas. When I looked at it again, to my supprise, the pictures in his ad were of the two puppies I had bought, and his price was only $500. Two days latter he changed to $250 each. His ad listed a Cel phone number for him.

When I called Matt's Cel Phone, he said he didn't know a Bianca or what I was talking about and to not to call him again.

At this point I called AKC. They told me she had no litters registered since early 2005. It did'nt surprise me. By now I knew she was a thief and liar.

She still has Ads in Ft Worth Star Telegram and many websites selling puppies AKC X-tiny with Champion Bloodlines. I don't know where she is getting so many puppies to sell but please be aware that she and her boyfriend are scam artist.

Her web site says "I have no secrets and you are welcome to see my facilities. She kept me and my sister in the garage and would not even let my sister use her bathroom. She said there was a gas station down the road we could use.

PLEASE, anyone who can give me advice or have been ripped off by her too, please post here.

Bianca (Bunny) Marcuccino... Marcuccino's K-9 Darlings & all the other "Marcuccino " AKA's...

AUTHOR: Lisa - (U.S.A.)

I already filed a prior report on Bianca Marcuccino (AKA) Marcuccino's K-9 Darlings, (AKA) Marcuccino's Long Coats, (AKA) Marcuccino's Long Coat Champion Quality Tiny Chihuahuas and all the other AKA's that Bianca Marcuccino uses.

FIRST... To let everyone know... Bianca Marcuccino has changed her address and phone number again. It is now...

817-503-0008

Fairview Drive
Watauga, Texas 76148-1103


NEXT... Paul, How does one go about getting the papers proven in advance?

When buying a puppy in most cases it is a VERY emotional buy and in my opinion that is exactly what a "Scam Breeder" is counting on.

NEXT... Bianca Marcuccino STILL to this day has my Chihuahua's photo posted on her website and in some of her advertisements... Bianca Marcuccino has been asked politely multiple times and then told (after she blatantly ignores the continuous requests by the "REAL" Breeders of my Chihuahua) to take my Chihuahua's photos off her website. This is VERY dishonest & VERY misleading to those who are thinking of purchasing a puppy from Marcuccino's if she is using stolen photos of other people's Chihuahua's to represent herself/business. Her Chihuahua's in no way look anything like my Chihuahua looks. My Chihuahua is not in any way a representation of what the Buyer/Customer is going to receive when purchasing a Chihuahua from Bianca (Bunny) Marcuccino!! ... Bianca Marcuccino is NOT the Breeder of my Chihuahua and has never even seen my baby in person!! The closest Bianca Marcuccino of Marcuccino's K-9 Darlings has ever gotten to my Chihuahua is when my Chihuahua's photo was stolen off the Internet to fraudulenty use to represent herself/business!!

LASTLY... On PuppyFind and on Bianca Marcuccino's personal AOL blog... Bianca has a positive feedback from a "Shelly in New York" ... The interesting thing is that at the end of that positive feedback from "Shelly in New York" it said that Bianca Marcuccino herself was the Author of that positive feedback and it also listed Bianca's own email address as she was the Author/Reviewer!! *** Recently, I publicly pointed that fact out on PuppyFind and now all of a sudden that positive feedback says that "Shelly" is now the Author and it now has a yahoo.com email address for "Shelly" instead of Bianca's own email address. This is very interesting as well.

PS. Cathi, I am so sorry to read of another being scammed by Bianca Marcuccino.

#3 Consumer Suggestion

dogs & buying

AUTHOR: Paul - (U.S.A.)

Um... the biggest deal here is..
First off, you may have been ripped off, but if I were you I would check into your legal options (both financial & criminal).

Im not personally aware of what your optionsa are since I am OKLAHOMA only.

Why would you fly or go anywhere without getting all the details ironed out and much of it verified/proven/confirmed.

SUch as the papers proven, information verified.etc.

Personally I think you went too much on faith and not enough on common sense.

(Im not saying that to be mean, but as a buyer myself, I will always be careful and verify everything).

Im not defending the seller, Im saying that you are stupid to be buying a dog the way you did.

As a at-home breeder (not a kennel), I invite any buyer to check out my pups before buying, but I am a honest seller as I want to continue selling pups in the future.

Anyway, personally I wouldnt move a inch till I verified everything. And wouldnt do a d**n thing without guarantees of return or refund.


In fact I bought one such champion dog (daughter of a major world champion pomerianian).

We even investigated the kennel owner herself.
I paid $800 for Sheba (my best pom ever).

We're Here Right Beside You Cathi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AUTHOR: Cindy - (U.S.A.)

Cathi, My name is Cindy and I too bought a pup from Marcuccino's K-9 Darlings: Bianca Marcuccino and Matt Bachman on Friday February 17th. I had talked to Bianca on several occassions in a 3 day period and had asked her many questions. I was looking a tiny female for my tiny girl to have a playmate. She Informed me that The Female pup was a True Long Coat and was a definately a Teacup, 7 weeks of age and had 2 Injections. When we arrived for our appointment we were told to stay in the garage and they were bring the pup out to us. The pup did look bigger so I assumed she was the age we were told. We wanted to see the parents but of couse the Male was out on Stud call. We didnt get to see any of her breeders. We asked about the papers and of couse Bianca said for us to write our name and address on a sheet of paper not knowing at that time what we were doing it for.and she would send them to us.

We paid them $700.00 cash, and we left. We went down to the end of the road and I checked in a puppypak that came the pup for our Reg. papers. i was dissapointed that they werent enclosed. I had my husband take me back so I could ask her where they were. Bianca said they hadnt come in yet and she would send them to me as she didnt reg. any pups until she seen how many would make it or not. I trusted her to send them to me. When we got close to home I noticed that the pup was didnt have any Teeth. I tried to feed her off a plate, bottle feed and was unsucessful. This was didnt know how to do anything.

I listened to the pup cry all night because she was hungry and didnt know what in the world to do. The very next morning a 7:30 AM, I tried to contact Bianca and Matt both by cell and home #'s. I finally got a hold of Bianca one time around 10:30 AM. I explained that I thought we had a big misunderstanding or that there had been a big mistake. That the pup I had picked up hadnt eaaten all night long and had no teeth, that I thought it would be best for us to bring her back and put her back on her mom or get out money back. Bianca immediatley became upset.


From then on, they never answered their phones or returned phone calls. I was very wooried about thais pup dieing on me and didnt have a clue of how to help her. On Monday morning the 20th we were at the Vets office to confirm our what was wrong with the babie. She was ONLY 3 to 4 weeks of age. I was so shocked. I couldnt believe that someone could be so darn cruel. On Tuesday morning I called AKC and they said there were no papers pending on this pup or any others.


I knew then I had been ripped off. I have called AKC Many of times and still no papers pending and she hadnt registered any litters since June of 2005. I spent the next LONG weeks of tube feeding a pup that I had to be trained to do and have help doing. This has been a long, long painful journey for both her and our family. I was so happy to see your posting. We need your help too. I'm sure you have the litter mate to ours. Bur ours is a Big female. She NOT a Teacup and NOT a Long Coat. You see, I Raise Chihuahuas here in Texas and I didnt see the red flags. Please leave a rebuttal for us and let us know that you have seen this. Thanks
