The way HP presents their puppies is called 'bait and switch' advertisements to consumers and it is a frequent common scam used on consumers—they are using photos they have copied from other websites and pages and using them in their ads, then portraying the ‘sold’ animals as ‘adopted’ ( at very inflated high retail prices, by the way) and the consumer has no idea that the ads are not the actual products and the animals in the ads are not even under their legal authority to sell not in their possession.

PUBLIC CONCERNS INCLUDE:
Frequent changes in ownership, licensing, re-licensing, permits, complaints to regulating authorities, locations of operations, plagiarized commercial photos from other websites and pages, uncooperative and hostile consumer and customer service, reluctance to answer consumer inquires and deleting Facebook posts asking basic questions regarding standards of operations; general lack of good business practices and professional communications, including but not limited as listed here, threatening comments to potential consumers or persons responding to ads. Unauthorized use of celebrity photos without legal authority or compensation to celebrities. It’s not just using public celebrities’ pictures she got from other sites, but combining them with the ads and pricing and overall context of presentation, to 'make public think' a situation is real.
Hollywood Puppies is selling live animals FOR PROFIT (at high end of retail market prices) Yet, repeatedly stipulates in ads animals are 'ADOPTED' to further mislead public or at least, misrepresent terms and conditions of actual sales.
REFUSE TO BUY FROM HOLLYWOOD PUPPIES IN SAN ANTONIO, TX!
