This Shiba Inu Always Looks Grumpy And People Are In Love

ADVERTISEMENT

I think I just found your new spirit animal. Especially if you’re a dog person and couldn’t get totally behind the new grumpy cat because, well, it’s a cat. Meet Chester. This Shiba Inu is roughly around 65-human-years-old which gives him the right to be the grumpiest grump of all grumpsters.

“Chester is a drama queen,” his owner Kirby Kaufman told Bored Panda. “He’s very grumpy and clingy. He loves being petted. But only when he lets you pet him. Typical shiba attitude.”

    “I adopted Chester from the Nebraska Humane Society in Omaha,” Kirby said. “It was over the Fourth of July weekend in 2017. He was 10 years old at the time. He’ll turn 13 on September 1, 2019.”

    After Chester began living with Kirby, a lot of his friends started asking the same question: “Why does he look so mad?” Some have also added that he looks like a fox while others even called Chester a demon dog.

    Probably because it’s not just his outside that’s so edgy. “Chester is grumpy to the deepest of his core,” Kirby explained. “He’s what all grumpsters aspire to be. He embodies the rage we all have on the inside.”

    And if for some ridiculous reason you still aren’t in love with this pupper, get a load of this – Chester loves pizza and chicken nuggets!

    Aw, his cute slightly different little face is so adorable. I have a terrier who we call 'grumpy' but he's a rescue as well. I think what we call grumpy is just a dog being wary and protecting themselves. I've found that it can take years before a rescue dog really starts to feel safe to do things like expose their bellies for tickles - mine only started wagging his tail a year ago. Chester needs lots of love but lots of space to relax and become his true doggy self.

    Shiba Inus are very independent and proud dogs. They are also one family/person dog and may take awhile to attach to you (trust issues). My mom's Shiba Inu Taka thought I and my youngest son belonged to him and would attack our dog. But they are worth it and will die for you.
