The five-month-old pooch's popularity skyrocketed when his owner, Iowa resident Derek Bloomfield, posted a pic to Reddit of his pup looking irritated AF!
Earl's owner explained that his dog's constant scowl is the result of an underbite. Hmmmmmmmm. That's also Grumpy Cat's MO! Very inneresting!
But even though the furry friend looks peeved — like, all the time — Derek revealed he's actually super sweet, saying:
"He is the most relaxed, content puppy either one of us [he and his girlfriend] has ever seen. Whenever he wants something he'll calmly sit down and stare at us until we ask him the right question. Then he wags his tail in approval. He's constantly trying to snuggle up to one of us and has us in constant fits of laughter through his facial expressions and mannerisms. He's a daddy's boy and loves to pick on his momma."
But don't expect to catch those moments on camera! Earl's Facebook and Instagram pages are purely dedicated to all that is grumpy about this puppy!
