She said: ‘We always get stopped when we are out! Many people will say that they have “never seen that coloring before.” 

‘A lot of people will ask if she is an Australian Shepherd/Dachshund mix but she is actually a purebred long haired miniature dachshund.’

Honeydew has her own Instagram account which is followed by more than 192,000 people despite only having been posting since May 21.

Heather, who works in social media management and consulting, picked Honeydew up on May 25 this year when she was just eight weeks old.

She had been visiting the puppy between the ages of four to eight weeks and when she was eventually able to bring Honeydew home she discovered that her new dog hated car rides.

To help ease the two-hour car journey home, Honeydew was given the handle of a paper grocery bag to play with.

However, when Honeydew arrived at her new home she instantly became one of the family, snuggling together with Heather’s other two dachshunds Holly and Hazelnut.

Heather said: ‘ She is one of the happiest, sweetest dogs I’ve ever had. She loves everyone and every dog. 

‘She always makes me laugh on a daily basis whether it be because she is barking at herself in the mirror or popping up out of her toy bin. I work from home so we are together 24/7. Honeydew is a total cuddlebug on the sofa while I do my work.

‘I love taking Honeydew to have playdates with other dogs as often as possible. She enjoys sprinting around and playing with other puppies like her!’
