Remember Katy Perry’s Dark Horse music video? Jiff Pom first made his appearance back then, and after that, there was no stopping for this Pomeranian pup. Jiff Pom also set a world record of being the fastest dog to run on two paws. Aren’t we impressed? This multi-talented pup will surely lighten up your mood with his adorable facial expressions.

Tuna absolutely knows how to leave us in splits with his facial expressions. Tuna, a Chiweenie or also known as Chihuahua-Dachshund mix, happens to have a recessed jaw and a wrinkly neck, and his owner sweetly calls it a “shrivel neck”. His unique beauty without a doubt make us fall in love with him instantly. Whilst Tuna has starred in his own book titled Tuna Melts My Heart: The Underdog with the Overbite, he has also traveled on many American tours to raise awareness for animal rescue.
