By Brian L. Miller / Staff reporterThe internet is ablaze over a rare breed of dog that has sparked online controversy and a rare, viral video that has gone viral.
The YouTube video of a two-year-old male Staffordshire bull terrier named “Chubby” with a “slight tinge of pink” and a small mustache is now viewed more than 1.3 million times and has become the most viewed dog video on YouTube, the company announced Tuesday.
The video has been viewed more in the United States than in the U.K., according to Google News.
It has also been viewed in Canada, Australia, Japan, India, Germany, France, South Korea, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
The dog’s owner, a woman named Tiffany, told CBC News the video was filmed in her backyard in Washington state, about two hours from her home in Oregon.
Tiffany told CBC the dog had been with her for about a year and had been a part of her family for more than that.
The two-day-old Staffordshire terrier was born with a condition called microphthalmia, which is a genetic disorder in which the retina and the inner eye are damaged.
The condition is common in the breed, which typically comes from purebreds.
Chubby has a “tinted yellow” nose and a “pinkish” muzzle, and his owners say he is very playful and playful with people.
He also has a soft, curly tail.
The woman said Chubby has been a big part of the family for two years and she was not aware of the condition until he was about three months old.
“He’s so cute,” she said.
“It’s just amazing how quickly he’s gotten better.”
Tiffon’s dog is the fourth of six puppies from a single litter that has been adopted by the woman’s family, who is named the Tiffany family.
She said she’s never experienced microphthalia before.
The breed was once considered a rare and dangerous breed, but it has become popular with dogs and people.
