Over 1.7million Instagram users have fallen in love with Marnie the Shih Tzu’s lopsided head and protruding tongue and it’s easy to see why!
Marnie was found on the streets of Connecticut in 2012, smelly and dirty, and was taken to an animal shelter. After 4 months she was adopted, and moved to New York with her new owner and ‘bae’, Shirley.
According to vets, her head tilt is a result of a brief illness she once suffered called Vestibular Syndrome, which affects balance. Despite this, and after having 14 decayed teeth removed (ouch!), Marnie is now fit and healthy, and enjoys long walks and partying, according to her Tumblr.(Video)
Since finding internet fame, Marnie now spends much of her time meeting her fans in New York and further afield. Here are a few of our favourite’s from her Instagram account – enjoy!
