Adorable Shar-Pei Puppy Looks Like a Cuddly Teddy Bear

0Meet Tonkey, an adorable bear-coat shar-pei who looks more like a stuffed animal than she does pup. The fluffy pooch is just a baby at four months old, but she’s already taken the internet by storm with her silly persona and delightful antics. Because she’s young, Tonkey is still learning to conquer the stairs, fetch a ball, and enjoy bath time, all of which are captured on her Instagram, thanks to owners Christine Park and her boyfriend, Dave.

With that sweet smoosh-face and unforgettable resemblance to a teddy bear, we know that we’ll be seeing a lot more of Tonkey. We can’t wait to see what she gets into next!00 000 0000 00000 000000 0000000 00000000 000000000 0000000000 00000000000
