Mark Zuckerberg is world famous for being one of the founders of Facebook, but he should ALSO be known for having a very special dog named Beast.
Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, own a Puli. Although you may not know a Puli by name, you should definitely know them by sight. Many refer to them as “mop dogs” due to the way their fur grows in a cord-like manner. Like this.
These energetic, hard-working pups were originally developed in Hungary to herd livestock. But these days, we think they’re naturally suited to be the perfect spy. Just look at how Beast is able to blend into his surroundings, perfectly camouflaged.
Is that a dog? Or a mop? (It’s a dog.)
Is that an elegant rug? Or is it in fact an elegant dog? We may never know.
OH MY WORD, IT’S BOTH! It’s a dog ON a rug.
With over 2 million Facebook followers, Beast follows in the family business’ footsteps by being his own social media guru. It’s not easy being internationally known, but Beast makes it look easy. He is probably the most famous Puli in the world. (At least, he likes to think so.)
But Beast isn’t just a world-famous, mop-look-alike spy dog. Like any Puli, he’s also sensitive and protective of his owners. In fact, Beast recently became an older (fur) brother to Mark and Priscilla’s baby girl, Max Zuckerberg.
It looks like Beast’s resume just keeps getting more impressive: Dog. Mop. Spy. Brother.
And now? Baby-sitter. His name may be Beast, but he is a beauty — inside and out!
