Chico has over 10,000 followers and friends on Instagram, but don't be too upset if he's doesn't seem overly pleased to meet you; the little guy always looks like that!

Don't judge a book by its cover

But they say you should never judge a book by its cover, and, according to his owner, the same goes for Chico.

In fact, she says he's one of the happiest dogs in the world. He loves snuggling with his human, belly rubs, and playing with his three pug siblings, - Hazel, Rita, and Ramona.

So what's with the long face, Chico? How could a puppy living the perfect life look so fed up all the time?

Well, Chico's unique expression is the result of a slightly 'wonky' overbite. This is where the upper front teeth extend over the lower front teeth.

Chico is perfect as he is

Most dogs (and humans) have a slight overbite. But while Chico's is definitely bigger than most, it doesn't get in the way of him living his best life.

Plus, it's what makes him so special and adorable! In other words, his owner wouldn't change him for the world, and neither would we!
