A woman who spent £600 for a "purebred French bulldog" was shocked when she discovered the puppy wasn't quite what she thought.
Bethany Cupples, from Huddersfield, West Yorks, admitted she was "very surprised" and thought she had found herself a bargain when she came across the pet advertisement on Gumtree.
She paid the breeder and picked up the five-week-old black Frenchie as a a present for her mum in May 2020.
The family quickly fell in love with the adorable pooch and named her "Luna", but soon the 21-year-old realised the pup wasn't totally as she seemed.
In a TikTok video, she wrote: "We bought a puppy for £600, a 'pure bred Frenchie' from Gumtree and this is what she turned into…"
Luna has a tiled snout and longer hair than the average Frenchie.
Beth and her family took Luna to the vet and they were told that the pooch is actually a "Frorkie" – a mix-breed of French bulldog and Yorkshire Terrier.
Despite the mix-up, Bethany believed the seller had made an "honest mistake" because she saw the animals were all extremely well taken care of.
