With lots of people being forced to stay at home, so many of us discovered cute and adorable puppy stories on the internet. And we’ve seen so many dogs of Instagram getting their much-deserved spotlight. One of such puppies is a Dachshund named Moo. Aptly named, the puppy has a Dalmation-like pattern coat and looks somewhat like a small cow.
Moo lives in Miami, Florida, with Victoria Hoffman, his owner. At seven months old, the Dachshund already has more than 13,000 followers on Instagram, and he’s been winning so many people because of his beautiful and unique appearance. His fur is called piebald – which means an animal coat that has white spots on pigmented background. Hence, the pooch looks more like a Dalmatian then a Dachshund.
According to Victoria, many people have asked her if her puppy is wearing some dog clothes. She said how Moo looks all-natural. Victoria noted that Moo has a heavy ticking, with black spots on his white coat and black and tan fur on his head – giving him a unique piebald appearance. The dog’s coat also makes it looks like his head doesn’t match his body.
Whether on social media or walking around the neighborhood, the two often get comments about Moo’s coat. They asked whether the pup is wearing some pajama and getting surprised that it’s his natural coat. They also get stopped on the street by people who want to take pictures with the puppy. And when they meet Moo, they fall in love with his funny personality.
Victoria said Moo also has a distinct personality to match his unique appearance. The pup has lots of attitudes and loves cuddling. He also loves hoarding toys and snacking on watermelon and almonds. Moo also loves taking naps under his bed. There’s never a lonely or dull moment with Moo around Victoria’s house.
