Dog with human face has become a viral sensation
If there's one thing the internet loves more than pets, its pets that are that little bit different. Yup, if you want your furry friend to stand out from the crowd on social media, then the most important thing to bear in mind is this: does it have something unique? Does it look like no other animal? Is it one you'd recognise, like Grumpy Cat, while scrolling through your newsfeed?
If you want proof of this axiom then look no further than Nori: a dog who has worked social media users up to a frenzy with his unique appearance: namely, the fact that he almost looks like he has the face of a human being!
Check out this adorable footage of Nori below:
Nori is an Aussiepoo mix who always likes to smile for the camera. His owners, Kevin Hurless and Tiffany Ngo, live with the crossbreed in the city of Seattle in Washington, and first noticed that Nori had the makings of a canine influencer after Kevin tweeted a picture of him, which ended up getting a lot of attention from other social media users.
Kevin even claims that, when he and Tiffany would walk him, strangers would often stop them in the street and comment on Nori's bizarre appearance. Although they say that this phenomenon has gotten less frequent as Nori has aged, they still hear fairly often about how human his face and eyes look.
The couple owns a Shorkie (a Yorkshire terrier and Shih-tzu cross) called Boba, who looks a lot more normal. The two animals are best friends, and Nori seems to like the attention he gets from the general public (even if he isn't necessarily aware of social media).
So there you have it: if you have a unique look, then don't be ashamed of it. Take a leaf out of Nori's book and embrace it! It could make you a viral superstar...
