Since Grumpy Cat’s movie debut mostly flopped, the lane is once again wide open for ornery animals world-wide—enter Iowa’s Earl the Grumpy Puppy, a new contender for the internet’s full attention, at least briefly. The five-month-old puggle (a mix between a pug and a beagle), made his debut on Reddit, with owner Derek Bloomfield posting a picture of the displeased dog on sub-reddit r/aww. Quickly gaining traction with over two million views of his sullen mug, Earl went viral, with several clever comments and memes spawning from his image.
Caters News spoke to his owner, who said “he just looks grumpy because of his underbite, wrinkles, and dark complexion”. They further reported that “despite his sulky face, Earl is in fact super friendly to other humans and dogs”. Check the gallery above for some choice shots of the pissed-off puppy, and follow him on Instagram here, and Facebook here.
