ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Are you thinking about bringing a pet into your home?

In this week's story with the Better Business Bureau, Better Call Harry has a cautionary tale. Scammers love to prey on dog lovers by stealing adorable pictures from legitimate breeders and posting the pics on their own sites.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture licenses pet dealers in the state. See if a dealer is licensed here: http://www.kellysolutions.com/GA/petdealers/
