Meet Anuko. He looks like he’s royally pissed off about one thing or another, but the fact is he’s a very warm, content dog and a devoted companion to his owner, Jasmine. But that doesn’t mean Jasmine’s attempt at taking Christmas card photos with Anuko did not result in some hilarity. Jasmine said about the Siberian husky’s facial expression, “He has a dark black mask around his face that makes him look that way. It runs in his family.”

Jasmine has had Anuko since he was only 5 weeks old, and she credits her dog with completely turning her life around. Jasmine said, “When I got him I was quite suicidal and depressive, I didn’t have any friends or a job and I’d quit school. I lived my life in bed, practically.”

Jasmine added, “Thank goodness he came into my life because without him I’d probably still be in bed, or worse. He encouraged me to get out-the fresh air and so many hours outdoors with him did me a lot of good.”

This isn’t the first time that Anuko has received some attention on social media. A couple years ago Jasmine’s funny tweet about her pooch went viral.

So while it may look like Anuko is grumpy on the outside, he’s really a lifesaver in disguise!

There’s even more good news. Jasmine said, “I run a website called Snowdog Guru, where I help other Snowdog owners. They’re a unique breed and come with a lot of responsibility. Because of my expanding website though, I made the decision that I wanted to go to vet school which I’m applying for this year. None of it would’ve happened without him coming into my life.”
