Oh Snap! That Toy Poodle You Bought is Just a Weasel on Steroids

Toy poodles have long been a status symbol of snobs throughout history. Perhaps no other canine in the world has the power to convey “I’m better than you and have a yappy little dog to prove it.”

In the ultimate twist though, a number of gullible poodle admirers have been duped into buying roided up weasels under the guise they were getting a pure bred toy poodle. That’s right, folks, you just bough an expensive RAT! Ouch, that’s gotta suck.

A local news station in Argentina has reported that a salesman was busted selling the impostor poodles to people after a man took his roid-rat to a vet, only to discover it was a giant weasel. The victim reportedly paid $150 for his “rat dog” and another woman was tricked into buying what she thought was a chihuahua – nope, rat again.
