Earlier today, fans of TikTok fell head over heels for a cute rescue dog with an unusual facial feature. Alan, a Saluki-Boxer cross who is just one year old, has a severe deformity that causes his nose to twist and droop to the right, which results in him constantly flashing his bottom teeth. The pet’s owners, Johanna Handley and Dan Strutt from Surrey, first started posting videos of their new furry friend on their daughter’s account after rescuing Alan from the streets of Doha, Qatar, where they currently reside. Alan now boasts almost 200,000 followers on the platform, and his viewers were smitten with him, with one individual confessing that they were overwhelmed by his cuteness.
