This Shelter Puppy Was Born With The Cutest Handlebar Mustache

Ahhh...she's so perfect! Mustache - Smiley.png

"When a stray shepherd mix and her 11 newborn puppies arrived at Dallas Animal Services in July, shelter staffers immediately noticed there was something different about this litter.

All dogs are born with facial hair — some even with pronounced beards — but one special puppy had something unique: a handlebar mustache.

Shelter staffers cared for the little family for two weeks, but with as many as 100 homeless animals coming through their doors each day, they knew the situation wasn’t sustainable for the family.

“Puppies are at very high risk for getting sick in the shelter environment, so we knew we had to get them out,” Allison Seelig, of Hearts & Bones Rescue, told The Dodo. “We went to meet them last week and were able to find an incredible foster in Dallas who took the entire family in!”

When rescuers saw Salvador Dolly, who also goes by “Mustache Puppy”, many couldn’t believe their eyes. ["Bow-wow-wow-yippie-yo-yippie-yeah"]

“The first thing people ask is generally, ‘Is that real?’ [There’s] a lot of ‘Omg stop it!’ and squealing over her,” Seelig said. “Honestly, her siblings are also so cute so we were all oohing and ahhing over the whole group of them when we met them!”
