Cute Pooch Has 'Human Face' And Even Looks Like He's Smiling

Want to see a dog with the face of a human? Of course you do - so here he is:

Nori, an Aussiepoo mix, lives with owners Kevin Hurless, 33, and Tiffany Ngo, 34, from Seattle who say they're often stopped on the street by strangers who comment on their dog's unique little face.

Nori has also enjoyed some viral fame after Kevin tweeted out his photo and was flooded 'likes' - well, how could you not like this little cutie, eh?

Kevin said: "When he was a puppy, we couldn't go more than a block without someone stopping us to ask questions about him.

"It has become less frequent as he's gotten older, but we still often hear about how human his face and eyes look.

"When he was a puppy, his fur was much darker, and he often was compared to Chewbacca or an Ewok, which are characters in Star Wars.

"We usually hear that it is his eyes that creates the human look, and I tend to agree.

"Nori is a Toy Australian Shepard and Toy Poodle mix and he often looks like he's smiling."

Like any four-legged influencer worth his salt, Nori has his own Instagram account which Tiffany runs.

She explained: "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.

"Nori is incredibly sweet and friendly, and very energetic and playful.

"He loves all people and dogs that he meets, and just wants to be friends with everyone.

"He's got quirky behaviour, like when he 'kneads', where he'll put a toy in his mouth while he kneads with his front paws, like cats often do."

Kevin added: "We were surprised by all the attention Nori gets at first.

"We knew he had a very unique and interesting look but didn't expect quite the reaction we got.

"But we remember being dogless and wanting to pet all of the dogs, so we try to be friendly and let people meet him as much as possible."

The couple also have a Shorkie - a Yorkie, Shih-tzu cross - called Boba, who is best pals with Nori.

"They get along great and play together all the time, though Nori sometimes has too much energy for Boba and Boba gets annoyed.

"You can see Nori's human look even more when the two are stood side by side."
