If you’re looking for a funny Mexican dog meme, you’ve come to the right place. This hilarious meme has become a cultural phenomenon, with more than 50 million views on YouTube alone. It’s fun to laugh at the absurdity of the name “Firulais,” a word of Mexican origin that means “to mute.”
It all started when a user posted an image of two puppies looking for a home on the perrocurifeo Facebook page. The “perro dinero” image, a Spanish expression for “money dog,” claims to award users money for posting the image. Around the beginning of 2021, a private meme page called Danksitos Ardidos V2 changed its profile picture to a money dog. Memes pages were prompted to crop the photo and put it on their pages, showing only the golden puppy.
The Xoloitzcuintli dog breed is the oldest in the Americas. Its ancestors probably accompanied the first settlers from Asia. Its development was estimated at three thousand years old. Its hair loss is due to genetic mutation. It also lacks premolars, a distinctive dental trait that makes it easy to recognize the breed in archaeological contexts.
