Customers were tricked into buying ferrets that looked like poodles (Picture: YouTube)

The next time you buy a cute poodle make sure you check that it isn’t a ferret filled with steroids, like some that sold in Argentina last year.

A couple of dog lovers thought they were getting adorable toy poodles but instead found they had been sold drug-enhanced ferrets.

Surprisingly the tricked owners did not immediately notice they had not received what they ordered, with one man from Catamarca only finding out he had a ferret after taking his pet to see the vet. Another woman, who also shopped at La Salada market, was led to believe she was purchasing a Chihuahua but this was just a con.

As you might expect, several social network users were low on sympathy for those who had been tricked.
