“Are you a cat person, or a dog person?” If that’s a question you get on a first date, there’s a 50% chance it will be your last. There exist unspoken rules about your domestic animal preference—not only could it change the course of your life (as in the first date example), but it instantly puts you in one of the two schools of life: that of doggos, or that of kitties. Just like left or right-handedness, it will stay with you forever.

Trust us, you didn’t see this coming. Apparently, there is a dog who resembles a cat living in Vietnam and he might be the long-needed answer to the eternal split between cat and dog people. People on this subreddit were quick to share conspiracy theories about the breed of this animal. One user claimed “he looks like a cartoon,” and another insisted “it’s a H’mong dog breed.” User u/ryliky confessed that “I don’t care if it’s a cat or a dog. It’s a cuddly gud boi and I want it.”

Pandas, do you have any other ideas what this little boy could be? Scroll down below to find out what the owners, Hai Anh and Tuan, based in Vietnam, told Bored Panda about their viral puppy!

Some speculate that it might be a hybrid between a corgi and a local Vietnamese breed called Hmong

It’s not surprising if you’re hearing about the Hmong dog for the first time, since it’s an ancient breed of Vietnamese native dog originally used by ethnic people in the area. According to Asia Life Magazine, they are considered excellent hunting and guard dogs and have exceptional strength and intelligence. The Hmong dog originates from the mountainous area of northern Vietnam. It’s known for its cute-looking docked tail. Mr. Tran Dinh Thao lives with two black Hmong dogs and states that “they are a very loyal and cute animal.” Apparently, Hmong doggos get along with children very well and are, in general, quite social animals.

Bored Panda contacted Hai Anh and Tuan, the owners of this puppy, and found out that the puppy’s real name is Dúi (“bamboo rat” in English). “It’s been only 5 days since we created Dúi’s fan page and it now has more than 40K likes. The dog now has loads of fans both in Vietnam and around the world,” Hai Anh told us.

And finally, the moment of truth has arrived: is Dúi a cat or a dog? Hai Anh explained that “he is a mix of a native dog breed and a short-legged dog called Dingo. But I think he might have a gene mutation too. I bought him in a mountain province in Vietnam.”

Dúi is a happy-go-lucky doggo and “like every puppy, he likes playing with both humans and dog friends. He is really sweet and funny!” The pictures don’t lie!

The question of whether you’re a cat or a dog person might not simply be a thing of preference. Denise Guastello, an associate professor of psychology at Carroll University in Wisconsin, believes that the preference stems from some of our underlying personality differences. “It makes sense that a dog person is going to be more lively, because they’re going to want to be out there, outside, talking to people, bringing their dog,” Guastello said. “Whereas if you’re more introverted and sensitive, maybe you’re more at home reading a book, and your cat doesn’t need to go outside for a walk.” It suggests that our environments, preferences, and personality traits are deeply intertwined. As a result, we are more likely to pick an animal that fits into our lifestyles.
