This Dachshund Is Not The Hero Canada Deserves, But The Hero Canada Needs
*nominates Rusty for a seat in Parliament*
You may think Captain Canuck is the superhero of the great nation of Canada.
And I'm here to tell you the Captain has been dethroned. By a dog. Who lives (and serves) in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, Ontario. His name is Rusty RuRu The Canadian Dachshund.
Rusty thrives — nay, conquers — Canadian winters. He also "can sport a toque like nobody's business," his owner Terri tells BuzzFeed.
He is incredibly outspoken and prideful of his Canadian roots.
"[He's] just crazy about being an uber great Canadian, eh!" Terri, who's the one coordinating his eh-plus Canadian doggie looks, says.
His squad looks way more commanding and influential than anyone in Parliament, tbh.
Rusty also shows love for his American neighbours (who are going through a little bit of a strange time right now).
But most importantly, Rusty represents the true compassion and heroism of Canadians: He was a rescue from a kill shelter in Montreal.
He wants to let everyone know: "Don't give up on the sick and maimed! We can be pretty special."
