Homeless dog with a deformed face becomes internet star after bearing striking resemblance to Dug from Up
A DOG with a deformed face has become an unlikely internet star thanks to his new owner.
Beaux Tox was born with a misshapen skull, leaving his face sunken looking.
Thankfully the deformity didn’t have an effect on his health, but his breeders struggled to find a full-time home for the cheeky looking pup.
But after being taken into animal lover Jamie Hulit’s Texas home Beaux Tox has gathered thousands of fans online who love his unique face.
The six-year-old is Labrador – who bears a striking resemblance to the dog Dug from Pixar hit Up – is even the mascot for a local real estate company Hill Country Real Estate.
Company owner Traci Frasier said Beaux Tox has overcome the odds – including a battle with heartworms – to capture “everybody’s hearts”.
Traci said: “His face just didn’t develop properly. When I saw Jamie posting pictures of him online I knew he needed to be our mascot.
“Now he is just living the best life. Everybody just falls in love with him.
“He has a special way of capturing everyone’s hearts.
“You just can’t resist him.”
