An animal shelter in Chelyabinsk has posted a picture of their new dog on VK, Russia's biggest social media platform, Life reports. Internet users can't identify the breed of the dog, noting its similarity to a bear. They have even nicknamed it "doggybear" in the comments.
Volunteers at the shelter say the dog is not domesticated and needs time to adapt, so they doubt it will find a new owner soon.
Social media users are angry with people who buy a puppy for next to nothing, and then abandon it when it grows up to be an unusual animal.
