EDMONTON, Canada (WISH) – That face.

Meet Tonkey – a bearcoat Shar Pei who, in just a matter of weeks, has picked up almost 200,000 social media followers between her Instagram and Facebook accounts.

The young pup has gained worldwide attention because she looks like a squishy teddy bear. Her owner, who posts the pictures and videos of Tonkey, joked in a blog post last week that she had “created a monster.”

Nearly every picture and video that is shared of the dog has gotten thousands, if not tens of thousands, of likes and shares.

Really though – how can you not love that face?
