When the Moultrie Colquitt Humane Society posted pictures of Rami, they didn’t expect attention like this. The dog is a pit bull-dachshund mix and has exponentially gained popularity since the picture was first posted on Tuesday. The humane society’s Facebook page posted 14 pictures of the bulky little dog along with a message about Rami’s personality.
“Hi! I’m Rami and I’m looking for my forever home.
“I’m a year old Dachshund/Pit bull mix. Yes, you’re reading that right, and, no, you haven’t gone crazy. I’m full of energy. I don’t like walking on a leash. I’m a sweetie pie, and love to run. I don’t listen very well, so you’ll need to take some time to train me. Because I tend to be a bit hyper, I might not be the best addition to a household with little kids. But I’m sure that all I need is a little lovin’. Will you take me home? Call 229-985-5463.”
This popular dog has gotten over 39,000 shares on Facebook and is making headlines across the internet. Huffington Post reports that the muscular pooch has gotten quite a number of admirers as well, “The precious pooch, who has a pit bull-type head with a dachshund-type body, has become so popular that the Humane Society announced that they will put prospective owners through an interview process as a result of the influx of adoption requests.”
“Don Flowers, manager of the shelter, told The Huffington Post that they have already received more than 200 applications for the pup, and will begin choosing an owner next week.”
According to Daily Mail, this particular mix of dog breeds is usually referred to as a Doxbull or a Pitwee. I prefer Dachsbull or Pithund. Or maybe a weinerbull? Regardless of what you would call it, this popular dog had a pit bull mother and a dachshund father and is getting the love of the internet.
In another Facebook post, Moultrie Colquitt Humane Society responds to all of the attention Rami has received. They remind everyone that Rami is not the only dog in need, “we appreciate all your interest in our sweet Rami. Please remember there are lots of homeless animals in shelters unique as Rami. Visit your local shelter soon to see other sweet dogs and cats in need. Please remember to spay and neuter”
That last RT: A pit bull daschund mix. Hard to wrap your head around. Looks like it can’t be real.
