Gullible bargain hunters at Argentina's largest bazaar are forking hundreds of dollars for what they think are gorgeous toy poodles, only to discover that their cute pooch is in fact a ferret pumped up on steroids.

One retired man from Catamarca, duped by the knock-down price for a pedigree dog, became suspicious he had bought what Argentinians call a 'Brazilian rat' and when he returned home took the 'dogs' to a vet for their vaccinations.

A few years ago I read the story that in China people were selling baby lambs as poodles.

When I first saw the title of this thread I laughed out loud. But then I saw the reality. WTF are they doing to the poor ferrets and other animals? Are they seriously that f'ed up in the head??????? <_<

I'm guessing he hasn't seen a poodle before.
I mean, I'm not a dog expert. However that is definitely not a poodle.

That's not even a "typically full-grown ferret" in the bottom picture, though it is the same size. That's a rare Black footed ferret from North America. You'd think with the entire internet at their disposal, they could've come up with one stock picture of a normal domestic European Ferret

They're pumping little ferrets with steroids :cry: .  How long do they expect to stay in business, people are gonna wise up pretty quick and it's just horrible that they would do that.

I have owned ferrets in the past. I had a silver-mitt and a black-eyed white. They were awesome pets.

My nephew's gf has a toy poodle.  He is actually adorable but so energetic it can drive you nuts.  Apparently tea cup poodles are themselves treated no better than the steroid attacked ferrets.  A teacup poodles range of health problems from being bred so small give them an ave lifespan of 3-5 years.  Personally, I'd get a poodle but never a minature, I would not encourage the type of breeding that deformed a dog to the point of a shortened life span, it's disgusting all round.
