While everyone can agree that Baby Yoda and puppies are some of the most adorable things there are, people can’t get enough of the gorgeous rescue dog that is two-in-one.
Mork Skywalker is a sweet pooch with big eyes and pointy ears that make him look exactly like Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian.
Shortly after he was rescued from the cruel fate of the Chinese dog meat industry, Mr. Skywalker became an internet sensation with hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe.
The dog was rescued by China-based HarbinSHS, an organization that intercepts and rescues pooches before they are taken to slaughterhouses.
As the rescuers explained, the pup had been suffering from intestinal issues and weighed just 11 pounds when he was rescued and taken to Los Angeles.
“[HarbinSHS] save all breeds, and we focus on bringing the bulldogs to America. They sent me a photo of Mork, and I said, ‘I love that dog. I will take him,’” Nikki Carvey, the founder on Roadogs shelter, said in an interview with Huffington Post.
Following the adoption, Carvey also created an Instagram account for Skywalker where she shares new photos and updates about the pooch.
Speaking of Skywalker’s health issues, she added:
“He eats a cooked food diet because of his irritable bowel syndrome. He has a special diet of lentils and various supplements. He’s an expensive little guy to feed. He probably eats better than I do. He’s still extremely underweight, and he gets fed four small meals a day.
“I don’t want people to replicate him and breed him. He’s got so many congenital issues. He’s got an undershot jaw, and he can’t breathe very well. He’ll have surgery to help him breathe. The last thing I want people to do is recreate Mork because he is ‘cute.’”
