Rescue Puppy’s Ears Resemble Cinnamon Rolls

When Jen Deane, president of Pit Sisters dog rescue, heard about a litter of five-week-old puppies who were abandoned and brought to a public shelter, she didn’t even hesitate to help them.  

After picking them up from the shelter, she immediately brought them to the vet. They were bathed and treated for worms, but they were otherwise in good health.


All of the puppies looked alike – tan with floppy ears – but one of the pups stood out among the rest. This particular puppy’s ears curled inwards, resembling cinnamon rolls.

Deane had never seen anything like this before, and decided to name her Cinnamon.

She posted Cinnamon’s picture on social media, which instantly went viral. People from all over the world were in awe of her unique, yet adorable ears.

Of course it didn’t take long for Cinnamon to get adopted!

Cinnamon, now called Kira, resides in St. John’s, Florida, with her parents Laurie and Matt McGovern and her three doggy siblings.

While Cinnamon’s curly ears were absolutely adorable, they have uncurled and grown out as expected…but she is still just as cute!
