After being featured on Instagram’s Weekly Fluff, Puka and her BFF Rocket Larry (an African Sulcata tortoise) have become an Internet sensation. Puka is an amazing 4-year-old mixed breed dog with a charismatic cleft lip, owned by Christine Hilberg in California. The household is home to several animals, but Puka and Rocket Larry really took to each other. We’ve featured her before here on BarkPost, but since then, her adventures have only gotten better. Here are some of her more recent fantastic photos, courtesy of Christine’s Instagram account!
