Mustachioed Puppy Found Abandoned in Box Matches with a New Family that Loves Her Facial Hair
It's hard to miss this pup thanks to her unique facial fur.
Ms. Mustachia, the puppy, was born with a beautiful, natural mustache right under her nose. Unfortunately, this unique feature wasn't enough for her original owner. Her previous family abandoned Ms. M.
On Feb. 28, the Arizona Humane Society (AHS) found the puppy by herself in a box, left alone by someone who no longer wanted her. It's unlikely Ms. Mustachia was on her own for long. The puppy arrived at AHS without any injuries aside from some minor hair loss — which did not affect the 9-week-old Boxer mix's mustache.
After spending a few days at AHS, Ms. Mustachia was ready to find her forever family, owners that would appreciate her adorable good looks, great facial hair, and sweet personality. The pup's dream quickly came true. Shortly after Ms. Mustachia became available for adoption, she matched with and was adopted by a new family.
Ms. Mustachia is a fantastic example of the countless rescue animals in shelters across the country looking for homes. And while this puppy is no longer available for adoption at AHS, the shelter has dozens of other pets waiting to bring a little joy to someone's life.
For those who feel they can no longer care for their pets, AHS has resources to help owners struggling to keep their pets.
"Any pet owner in need of help with their pets is encouraged to reach out to AHS' Pet Resource Center (PRC), a group of dedicated individuals who provide resources and support to Valley pet owners," AHS shared in a release. "Last year, the PRC team fielded more than 81,000 calls and helped keep almost 6,000 pets out of the shelter and in their homes."
