Kim Jong Un gifted two adorable puppies to South Korea’s president

Say what you want about Kim Jong Un, but he may just be the world’s best secret Santa.

The North Korean leader has reportedly gifted his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae In two Pungsan puppies as a sign of a growing peace between the two leaders and countries.

This comes after a landmark summit held between the two leaders in September.

A presser posted to The Blue House’s website details the the nature of the two puppers — named Songgang and Gomi — who underwent “animal quarantine procedures” before being allowed into the country.

“Adapted to the cold mountainous terrain, [the breed] is known for its thick hair, well-followed by its owner, and bravery,” reads the translated page.

It seems that giving dogs to one another is common practice for Korean leaders.

In 2000, then-North Korean leader Kim Jong Il gifted South Korea’s Kim Dae-jung two of the same breed. The South Korean leader reciprocated with two of his country’s famous breed, the Jindo.
