The internet is full of adorable animals. Thanks to social media and the rise of “pet influencers,” it’s so easy to access cute animals that melt your heart with their looks. On my Instagram, half my feed is that of feline pet-influencers who are just too precious not to follow. While I must confess I’m definitely more of a cat person, I have to admit that dogs on Instagram are nothing short of delightful as well.
Goma, whose name means sesame in Japanese, is a cross between Maltese and Papillon breeds, and that’s where the signature ears came from. The 4-year-old fluff lives in Tokyo, Japan and after becoming viral in the US she was named “Mickey Mouse dog” by her newfound fans.
Goma is a Maltese x Papillion mix and has been gifted with the best of both breeds.
In fact, her look has gotten her the nickname “Mickey Mouse Dog.” She’s got an all-white body except for her ears which are grey in color. Her adorable ears resemble a Maltese, but they also point upwards like a Papillion. In addition to the change in color from the rest of her body, Goma’s ears have another interesting feature. There are incredibly fluffy, which helps to bring that Mickey Mouse-like looks that she’s got going on.
She has an abundance of toys and loves snuggling with them in her bed. She even has lots of accessories like neck ties and bunny ears.
