Rami the dachshund–pit bull mix made a splash last week, and his newfound fame brought a torrent of potential adopters lining up to take the quirky hybrid home.
The Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society told NBC on Monday that it's received over 100 applications from families who want to adopt Rami.

In most shelters, at least 20 percent of the dogs are pits, but that number can be as high as 80 percent in some places.
Here are some other adorable pit mixes, some of whom are waiting for their forever families!
