Nori, an adorable Aussiepoo mix from Seattle has become an Internet sensation, thanks to his expressive eyes and cute smile.
Many have described his features as eerily human-like.
When they see Nori’s almond-shaped eyes and pink lips that curl into an almost human smile, most people can’t help but do a double-take.
His owners, Kevin Hurless and Tiffany Ngo, say they have gotten used to people’s reactions when they notice Nori’s human-like facial features but the attention has become overwhelming since photos of their pooch went viral on social media, about a week ago.
“When he was a puppy, we couldn’t go more than a block without someone stopping us to ask questions about him,” 33-year-old Kevin told Caters News.
“Nori also has an Instagram account, where we post pictures of him often,” Tiffany added. “That’s where we get all the comments about his human features, with some people saying he looks like a giant person, or they’re marvelling at his eyes.”
Interestingly, Nori isn’t the only pooch to gain celebrity status on the Internet thanks to human-like facial features. Last year we featured Yogi, a brown Shih Tzu- poodle mix, who also became a social media sensation.
