The internet has given us an abundance of cute animals to love, but you’ll want to save some of that affection for your new favorite sausage dog.
Moo is an absolutely charming puppy who lives in Miami, Florida with his human, Victoria. He’s your standard 7-month-old mini dachshund in every way except one: his color markings give him a mismatched quality that gives him a very unique look!
Be still our hearts! Have you ever seen such a cutie? As you can see, Moo’s head is black and tan just like many dogs of his breed. His body, however, looks like it belongs to a totally different dog! His speckled body fur is why Victoria named him “Moo.”
There’s no denying that he bears a striking resemblance to a Holstein cow from the neck down. But from the neck up, he’s all big brown eyes and sweetness.
Dachshunds come in a wide variety of colors and coat patterns, but Moo is unusual because his markings are so varied between his head and body. Victoria says that there have been many times when strangers have approached her to ask about Moo’s fur. Specifically, they ask her if he’s wearing a pair of doggy pajamas because they can’t believe his mismatched coat is real.
“They’re surprised to find that it’s actually just his natural coat,” she said.
Moo’s good looks have already netted him over 22,000 followers on Instagram, and his popularity continues to grow. It’s not hard to see why he’s becoming one of the hottest new puppers on the web — he’s flat-out adorable!
Having a dog like Moo is kind of like getting a two-for-one special! Why settle for a dog that’s one or even two colors when you could have a mismatched cutie like this one?
