Pit Bull-Dachshund Mix Goes Viral

Rami, an unusual and formerly abandoned dog that has the head of a pit bull and the body of dachshund, could soon have a forever home.

The Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society, an animal shelter in Georgia, is currently accepting applications from people looking to adopt Rami. The dog’s adoption request went viral, after the shelter posted photos and videos of Rami on their Facebook page Tuesday. One post generated more than 3,700 likes, 2,300 comments and 30,400 shares as of Friday.

“He is real!!” the shelter wrote. “Pit Bull and Dachshund mix. If you are looking for a popular/unusual pet, then this is it.”

Don Flowers, the shelter’s owner, told NBC Owned Television Stations Friday that he has received more than 100 applications from people across the country since the post went viral.  

“This is the first time we have a dog that has gotten such attention,” said Flowers. He calls it “very unusual.”

Flowers said Rami was found abandoned, walking around Colquitt County nine days ago. Rami’s story is similar to many of the more than 85 dogs that currently live at the shelter.

“Some were abandoned, while the others were dropped off by their owners because they can’t afford to take care of them,” Flowers said. “We’re full now.”

Admitting that it might be difficult to find Rami the right family, the shelter said they expect it to take at least a week to finalize an adoption. And while there are a lot of interest in the rare-mixed dog, Flowers emphasized that there are many others that needed to be adopted.

“We have a lot of dogs here at the shelter,” he said. “They might not be a mixed pit bull breed like him, but they also need a home like he does. We’d appreciate any help.”

Adopting Rami would will cost about $174, the shelter said.
