We knew it would only be a matter of time before another pet overtook the fame that Grumpy Cat has enjoyed for the past few years. But will this grumpy-looking puggle (pug/beagle mix) be the next big thing?

Earl, who lives in Iowa and is 6 months old, attracted attention after his dad, Derek Bloomfield, posted a snapshot of the grimacing pooch on Reddit (the same social media site that launched Grumpy Cat).

Then came a Facebook page and an Instagram profile. The rising star has gained a few thousand fans since his Internet debut.

Despite his constant frown, Earl is very friendly.

Don’t Miss: Move Over, Grumpy Cat

Bloomfield says that, contrary to his dog’s appearance, Earl is very sociable and in excellent health. The puggle’s physical features — dark coloring, wrinkles and a distinct underbite — all combine to create his grumpy look.
