Just look at that face. That grumpy, adorable mug that only an owner could love. The thing is, a lot of people -- not just the owner -- are loving this little guy. Meet Earl, lauded by his many admirers as the grumpiest puppy on the planet.

Five-month-old Earl is a second generation puggle (pug and beagle mix) and, according to his owner Derek Bloomfield of Iowa, his expression is merely the result of natural wrinkles and an underbite. So, if you ever come face to face with Earl, it might look like he's in a bad mood and about to tear you apart...

But in all likelihood, he's just being adorable and you're in no danger. :)

Hmm... I wonder if Internet sensation Grumpy Cat (a.k.a. Tardar Sauce) has checked out Earl The Grumpy Puppy yet? And if she has, might we all expect a Grump-Off in our future?

I'd buy a ticket.

You can keep up with Earl and the happenings in his grumpy world on his Instagram, his Facebook, and his Twitter
