Nori is a mix of Australian shepherds and poodles, and with eyes and smile like humans, the little dog has won the heart of the Internet.
Nori is a mix of Australian shepherds and poodles, but it's got a face that has the whole Internet talking about him. With eyes, almond-shaped and perfectly shaped lips, it is now known as the dog with a human-like smile. The adorable dog's smile kind of resembles a grandfather who has got a lot of wisdom.
Nori's human Tiffany Ngo says when his dog was a puppy, they were often stopped on streets by people. She told The Dodo: "I think Nori’s coloring is what makes him look human, especially his eyes. People like to say that his eyes make him seem very wise or soulful. He has a very expressive face — he even makes a disgusted face when I’m painting my nails and he smells the nail polish."
The dog has grown up and his eyes hold kindness and wisdom that cannot be denied.
People often ask Ngo if Nori is given some special grooming or not to enhance the looks. But she says there's no enhancement, just Nori's natural coloring and curls.
Nori and his brother a shih tzu yorkie mix have their own Instagram account and a dedicated following. "It’s nice knowing that their little selves may be making a positive difference in someone else’s life, no matter how small," Ngo said.
