Dog That Looks Like Statue Goes Viral

A viral snap of a rare dog breed has sent the internet into a frenzy after people were convinced it was a STATUE.

Owner Sandra Pineda found it hilarious so many people online had mistaken one-year-old pooch Piper for a statue – but said it happens all the time due to her ‘unique look’.

The 22-year-old, from Quezon City, Manila, the Philippines, first brought black-coloured Piper, a Xoloitzcuintle or Mexican Hairless Dog, home aged two months in March last year.

And when the medical student posted a ‘normal’ photo of Piper online she was stunned when it racked up more than 10,000 likes and thousands of comments in less than an hour.
