You Thought You Like Shopping? Wait Until You See How Excited This Puppy Gets In A Shop

If you’re super young and still learning about the things around you, even a shop can blow your mind. So when Zira, the cutest half Corgi puppy on the planet, and her human went to Target, she just couldn’t handle the excitement. Her infectious ear-to-ear smile is taking Twitter by storm, and it’ll brighten your day.

“This was her second trip to a shopping mall, although her first one she just slept the entire time,” her owner Jesse told Bored Panda. “She reminded us so much of Rose from Titanic, the way she leaned against the front of the cart, looking out into the world of Target for the first time! We could tell she loved it so much.” Zira, the cute Corgi and Mini Aussie mix is only 4 months old, so she’s constantly looking for anything she can chew. “She loves getting new toys, ones that squeak, crinkle, or bounce. And since she’s our first pet dog, she gets spoiled as much as possible!”

On Twitter, photos of this happy dog’s amazing time at the shop have accumulated over 487K likes and 127K retweets, bringing instant fame to the Monterey, CA-based puppy.

But that trip earned Zira some real love, too. “While we were turning a corner, this woman shopping saw her and freaked out,” Jesse said. “She couldn’t stop going on and on about what a cute dog Zira was. Zira just started licking her, and the woman loved it. She even picked our adorable dog up and let her kiss her face!”

Turns out, Zira wasn’t the first furball to enjoy a trip to Target

Not all shops, however, allow pets and not all animals enjoy such a commotion. Be careful while putting your little one inside a shopping trolley

I work in retail and everyone thinks this is cute but its not. I cant tell you how many shopping carts have been soiled by dogs. Sometimes we find out and clean them but im sure many times they just return the cart for some unsuspecting customer to use. Imagine all the things you buy coming in contact with that. There are many other reason only service dogs should be aloud and even service dogs should not be in the carriage because of hygiene issues. Not cool very selfish! I feel very strongly about this i have seen a lot in 30 years of retail.

Can totally confirm (also worked in retail) our carts were pressure washed 4 times a year but who knows in between. I had to run away and hide a laugh when one of my managers told a woman her dog can't be in the cart. Her response? "Why not, you let people's nasty little kids in there?" Lol

Pets should never be taken into stores (other than pet stores) unless they are service animals. Shame on you.

Didn't she say this Target allowed pets though? I have a service dog, and even though he's legal and legit, (I'm legally blind), I still run into people in grocery stores who have a fit. I have to tell them they are discriminating against an American with a Disability, and then they are sorry, but a few remain a-holes! If your dog isn't a service dog, or animal, it should not be allowed in a store, unless the store says it's okay. It's then up to customers to decide whether they choose to shop there or not.

Zira is insanely cute! Sure, dirty doggy paws I'm the basket are gross, but then again, how about drippy chicken or beef water from people's meat purchases, dirt from fresh produce, pesticides from unwashed produce, leaks from household chemical purchases, leaks from dirty diapers, and who-knows-what from toddlers' shoes? Germs are just everywhere. At least doggy germs come with cute!

Target has a corporate policy against pets in stores. Doesn't matter if the dog is "cute!!" Honestly wouldn't matter anyway, have you heard of health codes? Dogs are not allowed in stores that sell food, you know like Target. The dog has to stay home. This has nothing to do with whether you think the dog is super cute riding in the basket or if "other gross things go in there".
