MOULTRIE, Ga., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- A Georgia animal shelter said offers have been pouring in to adopt an unusual dachshund/pit bull mix whose pictures and video quickly went viral.
The Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society said its Facebook posts about Rami the dachshund/pit bull mix led to a flood of adoption offers.
"If you are looking for a popular/unusual pet, then this is it," the shelter said in a Facebook post, which assured readers that "he is real!!"
There were so many adoption offers for the 1-year-old puppy that the shelter posted a follow-up Facebook message asking interested parties not to overlook other animals in need of homes.
"We appreciate all your interest in our sweet Rami," the post read. "Please remember there are lots of homeless animals in shelters [as] unique as Rami."
