If we would tell you that a dog works as a software engineer in Facebook HQ you would mock our brain. But yes, it’s true! And the dog is none other than Beast, the dog of the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg. Don’t let the species fool you, he is much more than just a dog.
This fluffy creature lives with the duo of Mark and his wife Priscilla Chan. He is a Puli, which is a Hungarian herding dog most acclaimed for its long corded coat. They are rare in cream or grey colour and mostly found black in colour. These bulky looking animals are very brainy and swift. They are very fun loving, and very protective of their place or territory. Beast is no exception. This furry little animal has his own Facebook page and it has over a million likes. Beast, being born in Oregon in 2011 is over 3 years old now and has become Mark’s second priority after his social networking creation, as quoted by his wife. We bring to you 5 moments of beast’s life which are worth remembering:
#5 The office gift
Beast knows he is the boss and doesn’t care for anyone, even when the talk is about his owner’s office. It was the day when it was the launch of the new FB data centre. He strolled around the office like a boss and then left a small puddle of poop as a reminder that he was here.
#4 The outdoor joy
Beast enjoys being outdoors and often goes to act like a shepherd dog with a herd of sheep. Yes! A billionaire dog likes to spend his time with sheep eating grass. Chan accompanies him to this activity and he enjoys it a lot. He loves playing and is more of an outdoor dog.
#3 The birthday treat
Well Beast is a spoilt brat and why wouldn’t he be? Billionaire parents and rich lifestyle, that is enough to ruin any child, and Mark doesn’t want to leave anything to chance. For his second birthday Beast received a big juicy bone which was almost as big as him! Well he can chew it till his next birthday and still it won’t get over.
#2 Outdoor you said?
Well we said he is more on an outdoor dog, but that doesn’t mean he is a soft one inside.He will spread chaos all around the house if he finds himself in danger or in a situation where he might not get his way. Chan said in an interview once; “If we left him in the bathroom alone, in a few minutes he can make it look like tornado hit.”
#1 He is a family guy
Beast is an important member of the Zuckerberg family and probably the cutest one too. He is a mamma’s boy and his mom even walked the aisle with him at her wedding. This little guy loves to spend time with his parents and makes the family complete.
