Adorable Dachshund Puppy Has a Body That’s Spotted Just Like a Dalmatian

At first glance, it might seem that Moo the dachshund is wearing a stylish outfit that covers his body in brilliant polka dots. But when you look a little closer, you’ll see that the pattern is part of his natural coat. This illusion occurs thanks to Moo's black and tan head. His head's coloring gives no indication that the rest of his body is covered in Dalmatian-like spots.

Moo is only seven months old but has already made a splash on social media. His unique coloring and sweet face has earned him a lot of fans on Instagram that come to see him as he lounges with his human, Victoria Hoffman, and snuggles with his favorite toys. Admiration of the adorable pup, however, goes beyond the virtual world. Hoffman gets stopped on the street so that people can take pictures of him or ask her about his coat.

Hoffman and her boyfriend got Moo during COVID-19, and they have found that he is proof that you can find joy in hard times. Prior to the pandemic, they wouldn’t have been able to bring Moo into their lives because they weren’t around enough. But with the extra time at home, they have watched Moo grow and cherished the special moments.

Scroll down for some cute dachshund pictures and then follow Moo on Instagram for more.
