Tardar Sauce, a.k.a. Grumpy Cat, is considered to be the world’s moodiest looking pet, but there is a puppy who could break the record and might even dethrone Grumpy Cat.
Earl, a six-month-old puppy, is a puggle, a beagle and pug mix, wearing a permanently frowny face. Derek Bloomfield, the owner of the puppy, recently posted photos of Earl's pouting mug online, which received an overwhelming response from animal lovers worldwide, Yahoo! U.K. reported.

“The vet said he’s as healthy as any other puppy. He just looks grumpy because of his underbite, wrinkles, and dark complexion. He is the most relaxed, content puppy either one of us has ever seen," Bloomfield said.

He also added that Earl loves to snuggle up and would make them laugh because of his facial expressions and mannerisms.
“Whenever he wants something he’ll calmly sit down and stare at us until we ask him the right question. Then he wags his tail in approval," Bloomfield said, according to People Pets.
The photo of Earl was first posted by Doo1717 on Reddit, the same social media platform where the Grumpy Cat became famous in 2012, which lead him to a movie ("Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever"), merchandise, and a book, Woofipedia reported.
