One dog owner stunned TikTok by revealing that a breeder sold her the wrong dog.
Decipher and demystify the latest Generation Z online slang terms with the new glossary from In The Know.
The user’s account is dedicated to their pup Porter (@porterpooo) and the bio reads, “I’m just documenting my doodle puppy Porter growing up.”

Part of that documentation is how Porter gets bigger and the owner realizes that Porter was actually not a Maltipoo as she initially thought. At the end of June, the owner subtitled a video by Porter: “What I tell people after I found out that the breeder lied about her gender and breed and then disappeared.”
The beginning of the clip shows Porter as a brown puppy, while the next shot of Porter is all white.
“She’s healthy; that’s all that matters, “added the owner. “We love her.”
Some commentators, looking for the silver lining, suggested that the drastic change in appearance might explain because Maltipoos are not purebred dogs.
But in a follow-up to TikTok with over 13 million views, Porter’s owner continued to explain.
“If you get cheated by the breeder and then find out your dog has been dyed,” she wrote.
“My family surprised me with a dog for my birthday last year – it was supposed to be a red-brown male Maltipoo. We were told she was eight weeks old, but I found it strange that she was frail and slept all day, ”the owner explained on a Storytime video. “After realizing the breeder was gone, I started freaking out and brought up [the dog] To the vet. We found out that Porter was a girl, probably not a Maltipoo, around four to five weeks old, and not vaccinated. “
A true Maltipoo of Porter’s “false” coloring is very rare for the breed and can cost owners anywhere from $ 800 to sometimes over $ 2,500.
“I later found out that there are many puppy dealers who sell sick puppies, often dyeing them to make them appear a different color and breed, and also selling them with fake vaccination cards,” added the owner. “If I had the choice, I would definitely have adopted [instead]. “
The story goes on
Fortunately, Porter is happy and healthy in her new home. Commentators stressed the importance of researching breeders before buying from them.
“I’m so sorry this happened to you,” someone wrote. “That’s why it’s so important to research breeders; Look for genetic tests and titles. not [just] buy from someone. “
“This shows the importance of buying from ethical, responsible breeders,” added another.
“This is crazy,” said one commentator. “Poor puppies.”
