This Boy’s Parents Won’t Allow Him To Have A Dog, So They Got Him This Instead…

Every little kid’s wish growing up is to get a puppy. But what happens when your parents refuse to get you one and you live in Australia? You get an Alpaca instead! That’s exactly what happened to 14-year-old Matt, of Australia. Matt’s parents got him an Alpaca named Chewy, and he is one of the most adorable and gorgeous animals you have ever seen.

It turns out Alpacas are much more common there than in the United States. They’re more low maintenance than dogs, and they live to be about 20-25 years old.

Meet Matt’s Alpaca, the very aptly named, Chewy.

Too much cuteness for one picture.

Chewy is just a pet Alpaca that has his own pet rabbit.

I’m pretty sure we’re about to see a huge spike in Alpaca ownership.
