“If I won the lottery, I'd get hundreds of dogs”, it's a classic dream for us dog lovers to have as many dogs as possible. This pooch is two for the price of one!

Two rescue dogs for the price of one

Eight months ago, Zach and his girlfriend Cassidy adopted a black and white pitbull terrier, Lucy, from an animal shelter in New York.

They instantly fell in love with her playful and loving personality and knew that she was a special dog. They thought she was just special to them though, and it wasn’t until a few weeks later when a passer by remarked on her unusual markings, that they realised just how special she was.

Eye-catching pup

It turns out that little Lucy has her own selfie on her ear! The black and white markings on her left ear bear more than a passing resemblance to her own face.

The marking consists of two black triangles for ears, two circular spots for her eyes and joined up spots for her nose and mouth. It really does look like a little selfie!

A social star

Unsurprisingly for a dog this unusual, Lucy has developed quite the social media following and now has over 11,000 followers on her Instagram page @selfie_pup.

The three-year-old pup's Instagram page shows her playing in parks, enjoying treats and doing her fair share of snoozing – just as she should – and even shows her taking in some history at the Lincoln Memorial.

If you'd love to get a whole brood of dogs but only have space for one, then keep an eye out for pooches that have their twin on their ear!
