The age-old question: Are you a dog person or a cat person? If you’re on the fence between the two, there may now be a way to be both.
‘Meet the derpiest fuzzball to ever walk the earth’, Dúi — which translates to Racoon in English. Currently living in Vietnam, the remarkable puppy has the face of a dog, but with his body slightly resembling that of a cat, thanks to his furry grey hair, pointed ears, and longer, docked tail.
Woof Woof has collated a gallery of the young pup, who is now around 5 months old. Showcasing his playful side, highlighting his pointy ears, big tongue, and wagging his tail. So scroll down and enjoy!
Users online pointed out that Dúi may be a H’mong dog. The breed originates from Vietnam and is commonly owned by people in the northern part of the country, so it’s not surprising if you’re hearing about the breed for the first time. According to Asia Life Magazine, they are considered excellent hunting and guard dogs, as well as an incredibly social breed that does well around children and other animals.
In an interview with Bored Panda, Dúi’s owners, Hai Anh and Tuan, said that they were unsure of Dúi’s exact breed, saying that, “he is a mix of a native dog breed and a short-legged dog called Dingo.
“But [we] think he might have a gene mutation too,” they added, revealing that they had bought him in a mountain province.
Mr.Tran Dinh Thao, who also owns two Hmong dogs, told Asia Life that, “They are a very loyal and cute animal[s],” “They are very good with kids, very friendly. They are also very good guard dogs who will protect their territory.”
Dúi has since amassed over 190,000 likes and over 250,00 followers on Facebook. It’s clear that whatever he may be, we love him and he’s a keeper!
