FACEBOOK moderators got the willies when a lad shared this snap of his hairless newborn puppy.
Dominic Ibaosâs picture of three-day-old pup Dimitri was mistaken for something much ruder and was banned from the social network.
The close-up picture, posted on a group for animal lovers, shows the tiny petÂ asleep on Dominic’s hand with his bald body and wrinkled neck on show.
But a member flagged it as porn âÂ and Facebook told him it “doesn’t follow our community standards”.
Dominic, 16, was at first mystified but then saw the funny side as his photo went viralÂ with more than 60,000 likes and shares.
Dimitri is not in fact not a sausage dog or a cocker spaniel but a rare xoloitzcuintli breed, also known as a Mexican hairless dog.
Dominic, of Davao City in the Philippines, said: âItâs really hard for me to see the penis perspective because when I look at it I always just see the puppy.
âI got a notification saying it had been blocked a few minutes after I posted it to the group.
âAt that time I didnât realise it looked like a penis because when I first posted it to Facebook all I saw was a photograph of an innocent puppy.
âIt actually made me really angry for a moment, but I feel better about it now because people find it hilarious.
âI find it really funny that itâs causing all this attention because it looks like a penis, yet the photo is something I can keep sharing because itâs also not.
âIt just makes me happy that people find it so funny. One person told me it was the best laugh theyâd had for weeks.â
Dimitri was born in a litter of three to mum Daisy, but he is the only hairless puppy.
The unfortunate lookalike follows in the footsteps of Dimitriâs hairless dad Dante, who has become a local hero for his likeness to his goofy namesake in Disney Pixarâs animated blockbuster Coco.

Dominic, who has 12 dogs, said: âThe hairless dogs are really quite rare where I live.
“Usually we donât really see dogs without hair and itâs really funny to see one.
âI love the breed. People get weirded out when they touch the dogâs skin – they think the dogâs had an illness or that I have shaved him.â
