Thirteen year old Matt from Adelaide in Australia asked for a dog for Christmas - and got an alpaca instead.
His parents thought a dog would be too high maintenance, so they took him to an alpaca farm to chose one.
Luckily Matt fell in love with Chewy, the alpaca, and even takes him skateboarding near his house.
An alpaca isn't a classic pet choice - Newsround wants to know if you have any unusual animals at home?

I once had albino African clawed frogs. I also used to have a budgie, and at the moment I have a tortoise!
