    You may think your puppy is cute but that’s probably because you’ve never come across this adorable Hmong dog from Vietnam.

    Dúi is a playful pup that has captured hearts on social media after its owner uploaded images online.

    Some pointed out that Dúi’s face can appear a bit “derpy” at times.

    But that is part of Dúi’s appeal.

    But don’t let Dúi’s charming innocent looks fool you, Hmong dogs are known to be highly intelligent and courageous.

    Originating from an ancient breed of dogs from Vietnam, Hmong dogs are used as hunting companions by the ethnic Hmong people.

    These canines are naturally fit and can grow large in size.

    They also have strong bones, muscles and tremendous stamina.

    Some owners dock the tails and ears of these dogs with the belief that it will make them more aggressive and alert. Dogs that undergo such modifications are known as Hmong Docked Tail Dogs.

    Dúi has become an online sensation in Vietnam, where TikTok and Facebook videos get thousands of views hours after posting.
