Woman Meets Her Dog’s Twin On the Way to the Market and Gives Him a

The two Cairn terrier mixes look like long-lost siblings and get along like two peas in a pod.


When adopting a dog, especially a mixed breed one, a lot about them can be a mystery. More often than not, your adorable crossbreed rescue will have a look that’s unique to them! It’s just one of the many traits that make mutts so special. However, for Rogue, a cute Cairn Terrier mix from Boston, Massachusetts, the one-of-a-kind factor kinda fell through when her mom happened to meet a dog that looks exactly like her.

When Bethany Coleman took Rogue to their usual walk, she had no idea she’d be coming back home with another four-legged family member. In addition to Rogue, the family already had two senior cats in the household, and Bethany wasn’t to keen on adding another furball to the family. That all changed, though, once she spotted Beast at Last Hope K9 Rescue stand. The adoptable pooch looked like he might be a long-lost twin to her precious girl! To boot, as soon as the two doggos met and appropriate butt-sniffing pleasantries were exchanged, they acted like they’ve been friends since forever. So, what was a pet parent to do other than fill out the adoption papers on the spot?


Luckily, it turned out to be a fantastic decision. The initial excitement these two matching puppers had for each other didn’t wear off- they truly love each other’s company.

Ever since the fateful trip to the market, Rogue and Beast have become inseparable. The two Cairn mixes might not be real siblings, but they sure act like it! From heart-melting snuggles to sibling rivalry over toys, these two cutie pies are definitely furry soulmates. Sure, Beast grew to be slightly bigger than his big sister (as in- doubled in size), but you’d still think that they came from the same litter.


These days, the family is living in Hawaii, where the wiry-haired duo enjoys all the perks of beach life. Canine dreams do come true, it seems!
