Pet Scams, International Edition: Ferrets Sold as Poodles

White Ferret

We really thought we’d heard it all when it comes to pet scams, but nothing prepared us for this story out of Argentina. Allegedly, white ferrets are being beefed up, dolled up and sold to clueless customers…as bargain-priced toy poodles!

It’s terrible if ferrets really are being given steroids and sold to people who ultimately don’t want them, but we’ve got to admit, that ferret’s blowout is pretty amazing.

All joking aside, we really can’t stress this enough: Regardless of where you live or where you’re shopping, if a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is. When looking for your next pet, please remember to adopt instead of shop. An animal shelter will never lie to you about which species you’re taking home!
