When an Egyptian expatriate in Ghana decided to acquire a dog for his wards who had been on his neck for a while, he never thought he would be outsmarted but he knows better now.
The man who craves anonymity explained on the first attempt to buy the puppy from dealers around the Accra Mall, he was offered only white puppies of which he wasn’t a fan but when he attempted to leave, one seller promised to get him his preferred Alsatian white dog with black spots the next day should he leave his cell line with him.
Truly the call came through and upon inspection secured the white with black spots puppy for GH¢ 350.
However when he got home, he realised there was some black spots around where the puppy was lying but he didn’t know what it was until the children went to play with the dog when it rained on Easter Sunday.
“Instantly, the dog just changed into a white puppy with all the black spots vanishing,” he lamented.
He said careful examination showed that the dog was the spotless white dog he rejected initially. In his opinion, the guys outsmarted him by spraying some dark spots around the dog to meet his request.
He, therefore, decided to call the guy to complain but the number was completely off. He went to the Accra Mall area where he bought the dog to search for him but he was not successful.
The caution is to be aware when trading on the streets.
