Cute.

It is amazing the lengths a person will go to to run a scam.  At the same time, I wonder about the person that mistakes a ferret for a dog. 

Do you have his contact info.
I have a Tiger to sell him.

If it were dog / ferret embryos then they'd probably have a better excuse for misidentification ...
