A dachshund puppy is melting all of our hearts.
Say hello to Moo, a puppy from Miami, Flordia, with a unique black and white spotted body giving him a half cow-like appearance. He is a miniature male breed with what is known as piebald fur on his body and legs, which means he has unpigmented spots on a pigmented background.
His owner, Victoria Hoffman, says he always catches people’s eyes telling the Daily Mail this: “It looks like his body doesn’t match his head. Lots of people think he is wearing a coat or pajamas at first, and they’re surprised to find that it’s actually just his natural coat.”
She added that strangers think of him as a “little star” whenever he’s out for a walk.

“How can you NOT LOVE this dog to pieces,” commented one user.
“Your little dashy is so very cute,” added another.
And a third also said: “Your Paw-fect Moo!”
“He loves to hoard his toys in one spot, watermelon and almonds are his favorite treats, and he loves to take naps on his back under his bed,” she continued. “I never get bored or lonely having Moo around.”
Hoffman said that during the coronavirus pandemic, Moo has been a great source of happiness, not just for his fans on Instagram, but for his own family. Hoffman’s boyfriend was particularly glad that he could spend quality time with the pup over lockdown.
“It’s true that blessings and joy can still come out of hard times,” she said. “Moo has been just that.”
