I do not think the Boz Shepherd is a scam. I actually believe there are some good Boz dogs out there. But there are scam sellers who sell poorly bred Boz dogs to people. That is where I think the bad rap of the Boz comes from. Is the scam artist's. I do know some people who have told me such as Mark that the Boz dogs are not a scam and that they are good working dogs. I believe that it is a fairly new and rare breed so it is not very available at the moment so people will sell bad dogs that are poorly bred with temp and severe health problems. They are called backyard breeders.
