Meet Tonkey Bear: The Puppy Who’s Pretty Much a Teddy Bear

Christine Park’s dog, Tonkey Bear, has become quite a celebrity after Park posted a photo of the 4-month-old “bear-coat” Shar-pei on social media.

Tonkey Bear now has more than 100,000 followers — and counting.

Parks says she and her boyfriend got Tonkey Bear a few month ago as a playmate for their other pooch, a rescue Border Collie mix named Maxi.

Shar-peis are known to be self-motivated and, well, kind of stubborn, but Tonkey Bear is the opposite. She is not only a good listener but also a quick learner. Despite her large build, she loves cuddling and being around kids.

"Bear-coat" Shar-Peis are very rare.

This special dog is a welcome addition to Park’s family, and her popularity couldn’t make them any more proud of their cuddly teddy bear — oops, I meant to say “dog.”

Can even you handle the cuteness contained in this photo?
