After a £ 600 ‘purebred French Bulldog’ becomes an entirely different breed, a woman is shocked. »Wire
A WOMAN who spent £ 600 on a ‘purebred French Bulldog’ was horrified when the puppy became a completely different breed of dog.
Bethany Cupples, from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, bought the dog after she came across a pet ad on Gumtree. When she went to pick up the puppy in May 2020, at just five weeks old, she realized something was wrong but “instantly fell in love” with the animal.
But as he grew older it became clear that he was not the average French Bulldog.
The dog, named Luna, has much longer hair than a normal French Bulldog and she also has a tiled muzzle.
Bethany, who bought the dog as a gift for her mother, admitted she was “very surprised” when she first saw the ad because she thought she had gotten a good deal.
French Bulldog puppies can cost up to £ 3,500 in the UK.
A visit to the vet revealed that the dog is in fact a “Frorkie” – a cross between a French Bulldog and a Yorkshire Terrier.
In the video posted to Tik Tok, which quickly went viral, Bethany showed footage of what Luna looked like as a puppy compared to now.
Bethany wrote: “We bought a puppy for £ 600 a ‘purebred Frenchie’ from Gumtree and that’s what she became …”
Luna’s video has gained over 3.3 million views.
Speaking to LadBible, Bethany said the dog quickly became a member of the family.
She said: “We looked for a Frenchie, but as soon as we laid eyes on her we immediately fell in love.
“No matter the breed or the price, we welcomed her into our family home with open arms.
“She made our family whole and we wouldn’t change her for the world, she has the most amazing personality and is a fun person.
“We love it in pieces.”
Bethany also said she doesn’t think the seller is a bad breeder, despite the confusion.
“The seller just made an honest mistake, I wouldn’t doubt the seller is a bad seller or a bad breeder,” she told Lad Bible.
“The condition the puppies were left in was immaculate, they were not harmed or in danger.
“They were well fed and well fed, but despite the age she left home, we have no concerns about the saleswoman.”
Despite her crossbreeding, Luna remains fit and healthy and thrives. “New Summaries from Brinkwire”.
