Meet Alex, a 22-year-old student from Miami.

And this is their almost 10-year-old toy Maltese, Nieves. Her name means "snow" in Spanish.

Alex told BuzzFeed News they've had Nieves since she was 8 weeks old, and they all love her.

Alex said his dad always picks Nieves up when she goes to the groomer, but this time he picked up the wrong dog and he didn't notice.

MY DAD TOOK MY DOG TO PETSMART TO GET GROOMED AND HE CAME BACK WITH A DIFFERENT DOG AND DIDNT NOTICE UNTIL MY BROTHER AND I TOLD HIM SOMETHING https://t.co/fDxLTKw2Ql

Alex said Nieves was one of two Maltese dogs waiting to be picked up at the same time.

The dog Alex's dad collected was the other one.

"According to him it was because the dog acted normal and followed him to the car and even jumped in as soon as he opened the door," he said.

Alex said that his dad thought he was joking when he pointed out that the dog he brought home was not theirs until his brother agreed. Then their dad said he knew something was off.

He added: "My brother and I died of laughter and asked why he would take the dog home if he thought something was off. He said, 'I thought I was getting old and my eyes were betraying me.'"

"We told him he has to go back to return her, and he said, 'Yeah, I have to fix this before mom gets home,'" Alex continued.

They eventually told their mum, and Alex said she found it hilarious.

When he arrived back at the groomer, Alex's dad sent a picture to the family group chat to make sure he got the right dog this time. Alex said they all find the situation going viral hilarious.

He went back to get my real dog and he ain’t taking any chances 😂

Alex said people have been crushing on his brother. He’s been getting a lot of follow requests from Gay Twitter and it’s the funniest thing ever. “I have my girlfriend as my header; why is this happening to me?” his brother told him.
