The young man in search of his new pet arrived at the address and knocked on the door. The owner sent Jack to the backyard to see the talking dog for himself.
Jack was confused about why he would sell Fluffy, who was evidently very skilled and had lived an important life for only $10.
Jack found a measly-looking dog that didn't look like anything special at first glance. Nonetheless, he decided to give the pup a chance and found himself talking to him as he were a human.

The dog, whose name was Fluffy, looked up at Jack and casually replied to his greeting. Astounded, Jack took a step back and realized that he had just found a talking dog.
Jack and Fluffy had a long conversation. The dog told his possible new owner of his former life where he put his talking skills to use for the CIA and other special forces as part of their intelligence crew. Fluffy shared:
"I worked as a spy for the CIA and FBI for almost five years before I moved on to doing security work in the airport. I'm retired now and looking for a chilled lifestyle."

Ending their conversation, Jack returned inside to have a chat with Fluffy's owner. Jack was confused about why he would sell Fluffy, who was evidently very skilled and had lived an important life for only $10.
Upon asking him about the low price for the talking dog, the owner simply smirked at Jack and giggled under his breath. Clearly, he knew something that Jack didn't.

The owner went on to ask what stories Fluffy had told Jack, and he relayed the amazing narratives of the dog's spy work, and a life spent working for the American authorities.
The owner burst out laughing, leaving Jack feeling uncomfortable. He turned to the eager young man and simply said that he was selling Fluffy for such a low price because he was a house dog that could talk, nothing more.
