One said: "We bought what we thought was a German Shepherd puppy from a breeder.

"It turned out he was half-corgi, and we don't know the other half."

Jay said: "Given that there is a purebred tri-coloured Aussie sitting next to me trying to steal my food, I'm certain your dog isn't an Aussie."

Christy said: "He may not be an Aussie, but he's still Aussome."

It comes after a woman who splashed out on an expensive purebred mini poodle revealed why you should never buy a dog on Facebook Marketplace.
