Even “a–hole’s” need a place for Thanksgiving.

A young dog up for adoption in Texas found a fur-ever home less than 8 hours after a shelter’s social media post describing the pup’s unique personality went viral.

“This is Eddie, Eddie is an a–hole,” the Humane Society of Wichita County said on Facebook about the 1-year-old dachshund mix, alongside a poop emoji. “Eddie hates other dogs, he’s 17 pounds and could take on a Rottweiler and win.”

The shelter then went on to allege Eddie wasn’t from Texas and was more like a guy you see walking around NYC.

“If Eddie had an accent, he would sound like he’s from the Bronx, wearing a wife beater t-shirt and a tattoo that says MOM on his arm. If you got into a bar fight, Eddie would back you up and take on all 5 guys, put his cigarette out on their forehead and not spilling [sic] a drop of his beer while doing it.”

The shelter challenged anyone brave enough to take care of Eddie to do so, as he scares the other dogs inside the facility.

“So, if you think you are man enough to adopt him, please be our guest. We want Eddie out of here because he scares our big dogs.”

The new information on Eddie was a huge contrast to what the shelter originally said about the pooch according to an older adoption flier posted back in October.

“This Dachshund mix is Eddie! He’s around a year old, a little nervous to be in the shelter, but he is very sweet once he makes friends with you!” the Oct. 30 Facebook post read. “He’s very mild-mannered and we can’t wait to get him into a good home.”

The new, unusual marketing ploy worked, as only eight hours after the original post showcasing Eddie, the temperamental dog he was adopted by a family who said they had fallen in love with him.

“Very happy to say, our ‘a–hole’ dog has found his forever home! As long as they keep his cigarettes and beer well stocked and keep him away from bulldogs eyeing him up across the courtyard (although I’m pretty sure he could easily whoop ’em), he’s going to be just fine!” the new owner said.

Eddie’s new owners say they have received so much attention since the adoption, that they set up a Facebook page for the dog, aptly titled Ahole Eddie, that has garnered over 33,000 followers.

Eddie’s Facebook page has been set up to promote adopting from shelters instead of buying pets from breeders.
