An eagle-eyed beagle owner spotted her new puppy had the outline of a dog in the fur on her back.
While lounging in her garden on July 3 at home in Yorkshire, Shannon Austin, 31, spotted a familiar-looking mark on the back of Hazel, her nine-week old pooch.
Going in for a closer look, the full-time mum noticed one of the dog’s patches appeared to have the outline of a beagle, complete with a different coloured snout, just like beautiful Hazel herself.
The image has quickly gone viral, with people commenting that it was like the movie ‘Inception’.
Shannon said: “I noticed the day I brought her home that she had unusual markings.
“The markings were individual spots when I first met her at 3 weeks old, and now they’ve merged into a Dog-like shape.
“I think it’s amazing and that she’s quite unique.”
