Earl the Grumpy Puppy is a 5-month-old puggle from Iowa with a star-studded scowl. He became an overnight internet sensation after his owner, Derek Bloomfield, posted photos of the salty-looking puggle on Reddit. Redditors went wild, the photo amassed more than 2 million views, and comments took a hilarious turn from "This dog should have clearly been named Red Forman" (Mick0331) to "This dog looks like he pays taxes" (grundo1561). It wasn't long before the photo was upvoted to Reddit's front page. Bloomfield told Yahoo! UK that Earl's got a bum rap and "just looks grumpy because of his underbite, wrinkles, and dark complexion" but is actually "the most relaxed, content puppy either one of us has ever seen."
