This Adorable Pooch Has the Head of a Dachshund and the Body of a Dalmatian

Moo, a 7-month-old Dachshund from Florida, has a head that doesn’t quite match the rest of his body. He has the black and brown head of a Dachshund, but below the neck he is all Dalmatian.

One look at Moo and it’s easy to see why many people assume that he is wearing some sort of costume or pajamas the first time they see him. His unique look is not the consequence of some mysterious condition, he was just born like that, and he’s actually a healthy and happy little dog. With over 21,000 followers on Instagram alone, Moo is also on his way to becoming an Instagram influencer.

“He is a unique piebald because he has heavy ticking, black spots on his white coat, and he also has a pure black and tan head, so it looks like his body doesn’t match his head,” Moo’s owner, Victoria Hoffman, said. “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.”

“Moo gets lots of reactions everywhere he goes, whether it’s on social media or in everyday life. People love his coat and funny personality,” Victoria added. “We get stopped on the street a lot so people can take pictures of him or ask about him. He’s truly such a special little pup. He’s our little star.”
