What do you get when a Dachshund and Pitbull have a puppy? A short-legged , enormously large-headed dog whose unique features have turned him into an Internet sensation in a matter of days.

Rami is a rare, intriguing mixed breed dog

One look at a photo of Rami and you can't help but think someone is cross-breeding dogs on Photoshop, but Rami is the real deal and available for adoption at the Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society in Georgia.

You don't see mixed breeds like this very often. Rami's rare combination breed is called a Doxbull or a Pithund. Because of his unproportional features, he has gotten attention from dog lovers around the world. According to the online British tabloid Daily Mail, there have been more than 40,000 Facebook shares of Rami's photos since Tuesday, when he was put up for adoption on the Humane Society's Facebook page.

There is no question that this high-energy canine will soon find a forever home, but the Humane Society cautions that Rami doesn't listen well and will need training. See for yourself.
