People Are Convinced This Rare Dog Is Actually A Statue

Is it a dog, or is it a statue? That is the question on everyone’s lips.



Or at least the lips of those who have seen a picture online of a dog that looks a lot like a statue.




I’ve given up the game there, it is in fact a dog. But by gosh, it certainly does look a lot like a statue.

Sandra Pineda, from Quezon City, Philippines, shared a picture of her pooch Piper online and was shocked to discover it racked up more than 10,000 likes in an hour. Thousands more had commented, and they were largely asking the same question: ‘Is that a dog or a statue?!?!’




Piper is in fact a Mexican Hairless Dog, or if you prefer a name that is impossible to say, a Xoloitzcuintli.

Medical student, Sandra, bought her last March, when she was only two-months-old. The 22-year-old said she couldn’t tell whether the online response was seriously initially, though she eventually took it to be a compliment.
