A photo with a dog being described as a burn victim has people on Facebook and Twitter freaking out but it turns out it was a ham hoax.

The dog just has meat on its face. It wasn’t burned. has debunked this one, along with everyone else who has seen the photo.

According to the Huffington Post, Stephen Roseman posted the picture of the dog with deli meat on its face on Dec. 23.

However, in the caption, Roseman said the dog had been “badly burned and disfigured trying to save his family from a house fire.”

Which anyone who has seen the photo should be able to tell is not true.
