Dog with Human Like Eyes and Smile Takes Internet by Storm
Nori, an adorable Aussiepoo mix from Seattle has become an internet sensation thanks to his expressive eyes and cute smile, which many have described as eerily human-like.

His owners, Kevin Hurless and Tiffany Ngo, say that, over the years 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.
