I bought a long-haired Chihuahua but he turned into a totally different dog – people say it's my fault for not realising | The Sun

A HAIRSTYLIST that snapped up a bargain long-haired Chihuahua was left dumbfounded when it grew up into a completely different breed.

Jordan Skye “saw a cute white furball” advertised for £230 and got excited. 

Long-haired Chihuahua puppies typically cost between £500 and £1500 in the UK.

Jordan rushed to buy the little pooch when she saw it for sale on popular US selling site Craigslist. 

The seller told her that it was a white Chihuahua.

When the dog grew up, it turned out to be a Jackie-Bichon – a cross between the Jack Russell Terrier and the Bichon Frise.

The pooch, which is named Kiwi, is more than quadruple the size of what one of the Mexican pups would have grown to.

Jordan, from Florida, US, took to Tik Tok to share her blunder.

Alongside clips of her pooch as a puppy, she wrote: “I bought a long-haired Chihuahua for $275 from a girl off Craigslist.

“And it turned into this.”

However, people have said it’s her own fault for not noticing that Kiwi wasn’t a Chihuahua in the first place.

One wrote: “That looks nothing like a Chihuahua. 

“How did you fall for that?

“He’s still cute though.”

Jordan comically replied: “Saw a cute white furball and got excited.”

Another woman couldn't help but point out the pooch’s similarity to her dog.

She penned: “Looks identical to my Jackie-Bichon.”

Jordan assured that Kiwi "is the best doggy though” alongside clips of her four-legged friend.

Dog experts advise looking at a puppy’s size, ears, eyes and head shape to confirm it’s a Chihuahua.

The little dogs are some of the smallest in the world with pointed ears and full, round eyes.
