Life is too short to either be a cat or dog person. The two don’t have to be mutually exclusive but often people are asked which they prefer, as if one is better than the other.
But there is one beautiful creature who has gone viral for having the best of both worlds.
Dúi is taking the internet’s collective heart by storm just for being the sweet boy he is.
Users on Reddit have been referring to him as the ‘derpiest fuzzball’ and trying to guess his breed.
They speculated that Dúi may be a cross between a corgi and a Vietnamese breed called Hmong. Others joked he may be a Corgi mixed with a British shorthair cat.
We managed to track down Dúi’s owners who live in Hanoi, Vietnam, with the goodest boy.
Hai Anh and Tuan tell us that Dúi, who is two and a half months old, is actually a mix of a dog breed native to Vietnam with a short-legged dog called Dingo.
‘But I think he might have a gene mutation too. I bought him in a mountain province in Vietnam,’ Tuan said.
And unlike his sweet and fun disposition, Dúi translated to English means bamboo rat. But Dúi is far from a pest.
‘He is a happy and sweet pup, he loves to play with other dogs, even big dogs and so sweet with humans.
‘It’s been only five days since we created Dúi’s fan page and it now has more than 40,000 likes. The dog now has loads of fans both in Vietnam and around the world.’
Redditors reckon Dúi would make the perfect pet and unite those who can’t choose between the two.
One user even wrote a poem about him: ‘A cat or a dog, that’s what i am
‘I’ll be the purrfect pet!
‘A drunken mini fox bear fam –
‘You don’t know what you’ll get…
‘I’m soft and grey, and kinda short,
‘A gentle lap-size, me
‘I like to derp around for sport –
‘Your new best friend, I’ll be!
‘Dogs – they always need a friend,
‘Cats act like they don’t care
‘Either way, I can’t pretend –
‘I’ll just be glad you’re there!’
How sweet. We certainly can’t get enough of Dúi.
