Chuchi, Another Dog With A Human Face

A few weeks ago, The Huffington Post ran a story about Tonik, a dog with a human-like face, whose adorably strange mug won the Internet.

In response to that story, a reader sent us a photo of Chuchi, a Peekapoo (Pekingese and poodle mix) that looks and acts like a “grumpy old man,” according to Jane Pierantozzi, director of Faithful Friends Animal Society, the no-kill Delaware shelter that took care of the pup.


According to Pierantozzi, Faithful Friends cared for Chuchi for eight months in 2012 before his foster family adopted him. Apparently, the Peekapoo was rather particular about whom he liked.

“[Chuchi] is a bit temperamental and only likes the few people that he wants to like — just like some people,” Pierantozzi wrote HuffPost in an email. “If you irritate Chuchi, he lets you know. He reminds us of an old man who can be grumpy at times.”
