Kevin and Tiffany have become used to the attention their unusual pet brings, and say they still love to see the reactions he causes.
After Nori’s owners published a photo of him on Twitter he quickly became a stand-out star, with the tweet racking up over 9,000 likes.
Kevin, an energy consultant said: ‘When he was a puppy, we couldn’t go more than a block without someone stopping us to ask questions about him.
‘It has become less frequent as he’s gotten older, but we still often hear about how human his face and eyes look.

‘When he was a puppy, his fur was much darker, and he often was compared to Chewbacca or an Ewok, which are characters in Star Wars.
‘We usually hear that it is his eyes that creates the human look, and I tend to agree.
‘Nori is a Toy Australian Shepard and Toy Poodle mix and he often looks like he’s smiling.
Kevin’s partner, and ‘mother’ to Nori, Tiffany Ngo, a contract administrator said: ‘Nori also has an Instagram account, where we post pictures of him often.
‘That’s where we get all the comments about his human features, with some people saying he looks like a giant person, or they’re marvelling at his eyes.
‘Nori is incredibly sweet and friendly, and very energetic and playful.
‘He loves all people and dogs that he meets, and just wants to be friends with everyone.

Owners Kevin Hurless, 33, and Tiffany Ngo, 34, said they agreed it was Nori’s eyes who gave him an almost human face
‘He’s got quirky behaviour, like when he “kneads”, where he’ll put a toy in his mouth while he kneads with his front paws, like cats often do.
Kevin added: ‘We were surprised by all the attention Nori gets at first.
‘We knew he had a very unique and interesting look, but didn’t expect quite the reaction we got.
‘But we remember being dogless and wanting to pet all of the dogs, so we try to be friendly and let people meet him as much as possible.
Fluffy Nori looks human-like ever since Kevin and Tiffany got him, but his owners did not expect him to muster such reactions from strangers
According to his owners, adorable Nori is friendly, playful and full of energy. He is a toy mix breed, and only weights 13 pounds ( 0.9 stone)
Who can resist that face? Kevin said ‘quirky’ Nori liked to play with his toy by ‘kneading’ them with his paw, like a cat

‘We made the decision to get Nori a friend last year, Boba, who is a one year old Shorkie – which is a Shih-tzu, Yorkie mix.
‘They get along great and play together all the time, though Nori sometimes has too much energy for Boba and Boba gets annoyed.
‘You can see Nori’s human look even more when the two are stood side by side.
‘”Doodles” as a breed are very popular right now, but being a toy mix, Nori is only about 13 pounds and mostly fluff.
‘He looks completely different during a bath!’
