Hello and welcome. I am so sorry about the loss of your Jake. As someone else above said, almost all of us here have lost at least one golden--I have lost 6--two adopted--over the years. It always hurt.
I don't know where you live, but maybe you could check with the nearest golden retriever rescue. Most likely no puppy, but maybe a younger dog. Maybe you could check out breeders in your area or close enough to visit and see for yourself. Also, I would file charges over the taking of your money and not delivering on the puppies. Good luck with whichever way you decide to do.
