This story actually came out about a year ago, but it just started going viral in the last day or so.

A man in Argentina thought that hew was plunking down $150 each for toy poodles. It turns out that he was actually the victim of a scam and what he got were just ferrets in disguise.

Despite the fact that the animal on the right in the picture below is clearly not a dog, the man was fooled foe quest some time and he didn’t actually find out they were ferrets until he took them to the vet.

That is when he learned that they had been given steroids to bulk up and their coats were groomed to make them extra fluffy.
