Moo is officially an internet sensation! This little fellow is on;y seven-months-old, but he's been making a big splash over on Instagram. With good reason too, can you believe his markings?
Moo has piebald fur. A piebald or pied animal is one that has a pattern of unpigmented spots (white) on a pigmented background of hair, feathers or scales. Thus a piebald black and white dog is a black dog with white spots. The animal's skin under the white background is not pigmented.
His name is pretty fitting too, he does kind of look like a miniature cow. Moo is out there living the high life in Miami, he’s known as quite the flirt, will you look at this cheeky pose!
Owner Victoria Hoffman, 24, from Miami, Florida, USA, told The Sun that 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.
