This is definitely not something you see every day -- the tiny, docile Dachshund has apparently mated with the big boss of the dog world, the Pit Bull. While not something many of us expected to lay our eyes on in this lifetime, it exists, and it is adorable.
"He is real!!" the Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society posted on their Facebook page. "Pit Bull and Dachshund mix. If you are looking for a popular/unusual pet, then this is it."
Since posting photos and video (yes there's video) of Rami, the dog has quickly gone viral, and applications for adoption are apparently pouring in. There's been so much interest in the rare mix, that the shelter had to remind people that there were, in fact, other dogs that needed adopting.
"We appreciate all your interest in our sweet Rami," they wrote on the page. "Please remember there are lots of homeless animals in shelters [as] unique as Rami.”
