Meet Salvador Dolly, The Shelter Puppy Born With The Most Glorious Handlebar Mustache

A few weeks ago, Hearts & Bones Rescue organization brought a stray Shepherd mix to Dallas Animal Services. The stray recently gave birth to 11 adorable puppies, and with just one look everyone knew there was something special about one of them, who had prominent black markings on her face that looked just like a handlebar mustache.

A 5-week-old pup named Salvadore Dolly was born with a handlebar mustache on her face. She was named after Spanish painter Salvador Dali, who also had a notable mustache.

When rescuers saw Salvador Dolly, who also goes by “Mustache Puppy,” many couldn’t believe their eyes.

“The first thing people ask is generally, ‘Is that real?’ [There’s] a lot of ‘Omg stop it!’ and squealing over her,” Seelig said. “Honestly, her siblings are also so cute so we were all oohing and ahhing over the whole group of them when we met them!”

Hearts & Bones Rescue posted photos of the family to their Instagram account to help them find kind owners. After the picture was shared, many viewers have shown an interest in fostering or adopting the little girl with a very distinct marking on her face.

“Puppies are at very high risk for getting sick in the shelter environment, so we knew we had to get them out,” Allison Seelig, of Hearts & Bones Rescue, told. “We went to meet them last week and were able to find an incredible foster in Dallas who took the entire family in!”

At 5 weeks old, Salvador Dolly may seem a little young to grow a bushy hipster mustache, but she isn’t ashamed of her fuzzy upper lip.

Luckily, the shelter was able to find an incredible foster in Dallas who took the entire family in. Once the puppies are weaned, the whole family will come to New York City in late August. There, they will be placed into new foster homes while searching for forever families.

The entire family is happy to have a safe home, where they’re getting the medical care and attention they need. Their caring foster makes sure each puppy is monitored — mustache or not — and that Mama is kept happy, too:

“The puppies are still nursing, which can be a lot for Mom to handle, but her foster makes sure to give her breaks to have some down time,” Seelig said. “She’s also getting lots of food to make sure she keeps her calorie intake up!”
