You know when you buy a toy poodle and it turns out to be a ferret on steroids? No, of course you don't! Unless, that is, you go looking for a new family pet in an Argentine market. A dude in Buenos Aires did just that when he decided to not go to a pet store or shelter like a normal person and opted for a sleazy outdoor mercado. He bought what he believed to be a fluffy useless poodle. It turns out that the unscrupulous vendor had created a monstrous long-haired ferret by juicing him with 'roids. The new pet owner didn't realize the abomination was a rodent and not a fuzzy wuzzy puppy until he took him to the vet. OK, so the guy is an idiot as that CLEARLY isn't a dog. The ferret-dog is kind of cute though.
Sure, a dog is a more standard pet. But why do you want to have the same fluffy white dog as everyone else? When you take the hairy mutant ferret to the park he would be an instant conversation starter with the hot chicks that hang out at dog runs. The juiced up rat could be the best wingman ever! The video above is in Spanish, but the gist of it is that the market is notorious for selling ferrets as dogs. The old woman in the video tells of buying what she thought was a chihuahua at the market only to learn that it was a ferret. If you buy your pets from some shady dude at a Latin American market you get what you pay for. Caveat Emptor.
