'He is real!' This unusual Dachshund/pit bull mix needs a home

What's part Dachshund, part pit bull, and all adorable?

Meet Rami, a Georgia dog whose search for a home went viral after it was posted on Tuesday by the Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society.

The shelter, based in Moultrie, Georgia, regularly posts pictures of cats and dogs who need a permanent home, but something about year-old Rami created a special buzz. 

Maybe it's the way his big head looks on his tiny body. Or the way he runs around the shelter on his stubby (yet super cute) legs. Whatever it is, it worked.

"He is real!!" the shelter wrote on Tuesday, along with a video of the unusual dog, noting they'd already had quite a bit of interest in him since posting his pictures that morning.

Due to increased interest in Rami, the shelter advised fans on Facebook that applications for adopting the dog should now be directed to their email. Approved applications will then be scheduled for an interview.
