Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was in Oregon recently to acquire something special – an adorable puppy.
Zuckerberg adopted the puppy from Pannonia Alpacas & Kennel in Grants Pass. The dog they picked is a Puli, which is an ancient Hungarian sheepdog. Theyâ€™re known for their wavy, curly coat, which tends to clump together. Pulis donâ€™t shed, which makes them hypoallergenic and good pets for people with allergies.
They named the puppy Beast. Beast has a Facebook page and has picked up more than 40,000 fans this week. Beast’s bio reads:
I belong to Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan. I am a Puli, which is a type of Hungarian Sheepdog. I was born in Grants Pass, Oregon and now I live in Palo Alto with Mark and Cilla. I am extremely cute.
Beast’s personal interests include cuddling, loving and eating. Here are more pics from the pup’s page:
