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.

And for a myriad of reasons he is the hero Canadians need and deserve. Let us consider:

And for a myriad of reasons he is the hero Canadians need and deserve. Let us consider:

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 also has a broken tail, which Terri and her husband calls "a sweeper" because "it wags and at the same time sweeps the floor."

He wants to let everyone know: "Don't give up on the sick and maimed! We can be pretty special."

We salute you, Rusty. 🇨🇦
