But despite its black and white Dalmatian-like spots, it’s a dachsund.

Moo, a seven-month-old puppy, has piebald fur, which is when an animal has unpigmented white spots on a much darker background.

Owner Victoria Hoffman, 24, from Miami, Florida, USA, said the combination of Moo’s different markings on his head and body make him unique.

She said: “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. Lots of people think he is wearing a coat or pyjamas 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.

“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.”

Victoria, who works for a skincare beauty company, said Moo has a special personality to match his fur.

She said: “Moo doesn’t just have a special coat, but a special personality as well. He has lots of attitude and is super cuddly and sweet as well.”
