When Lucy was born at the Lollypop Farm Humane Society of Greater Rochester, none of the staff members noticed the formation of dots on her left ear that bore a remarkable resemblance to the puppy herself until one of their website visitors spotted it.

“Looking at her every day, no one here even noticed Lucy’s special ear until it was pointed out to us by a very observant visitor to our website,” shelter spokesperson Paige Doerner told The Dodo. “We couldn’t believe it when we looked closer at the picture.”

And it was Lucy’s special ear that got her a home; within two hours of the rescue group posting about it online, someone came to the Western New York shelter to adopt her.

“The attention that was brought in by her special ear over social media is wonderful, both for Lucy, and for the other rescued pets here at Lollypop Farm who are looking for new homes,” Doerner said.
