This is funny, but at the same time it's horrible. Lol. How can you mistake that thing on the right for a poodle? It's obviously a ferret. Lol! There's a picture in the link.

An Argentine man who thought he bought a pair of poodles at an outdoor market in Buenos Aires brought them home to the vet only to be told they were actually ferrets on steroids, reports the Daily Mail.
The man, a retiree from Catamarca, purchased the animals at La Salada, Argentina's largest bazaar.
The veterinarian informed him the ferrets "had been given steroids at birth to increase their size and then had some extra grooming to make their coats resemble a fluffy toy poodle," the paper says, translating a report from a local Argentine TV station. He paid $150 per poodle.
Another woman interviewed by the station said she was tricked into thinking she had purchased a chihuahua at the same market.
It's unclear what the duped pet owners did with their faux poodles. But if you're thinking about buying a poodle at an Argentine market, the Daily Mail has a handy guide on how to tell whether the pooch you're purchasing is actually a ferret:

I died when I saw that. I showed my husband and asked if I could get one of these "Poodles" and he told me I should get my eyes checked because "it's obviously one of those illegal rats" rofl... I would sell them as poodles if I knew anyone dumb enough to fall for it.

Maybe I just met some awful ferrets. My cousin had 2 and they ran wild and I couldn't walk without them biting my feet and ankles.
