Does "moo-moo/mumu" = "dog" in some language? Or is it something worse?

A small child seemed very excited to see my wife and I walking our dogs in the park. She pointed at us and exclaimed, "Moo-Moo, Moo-moo," over and over. At first we thought, she was happy about the dogs. Then we started joking that moo-moo was actually Korean for fat, white people. (We only guess she was Korean. We're not particularly overweight, but we are white Americans, so...). We couldn't find any Asian translations of moo-moo/mumu that make sense. Any ideas? (Snarky comments/suggestions welcome.)
