Man buys poodles only to find out they're ferrets on steroids

By Published: April 8, 2013

Thanks to professional baseball, we understand the impact of steroid on athletes.

But what if a ferret is given steroids? Apparently, it can be sold as a Toy Poodle.

An Argentina man spent $150 on what he thought was two poodles. When he took his "dogs" to the veterenarian, he found out he was tricked into buying two ferrets pumped up with steroids.

The two fake dogs were given steroids since birth and had their fur fluffed up.

The UK Mail notes this may not be totally unique. Another person thought they were buy a Chiuhuahua, but it turned out to be a ferret.

Here's the news report (it is in Spanish).
