Is she a teddy bear? Nope, but Tonkey sure looks like a little bear with her thick fur coat and a face that begs for a loving squish. Tonkey is a four-month-old bear-coat Shar Pei, and after only eight weeks on Instagram, she’s got over 100K followers.

Her popularity isn’t surprising, as the adorable pooch can be seen trying on costumes, visiting stores, running and playing, or just relaxing. She shares the spotlight with her “big sister” Maxi, a Border Collie rescue who teaches the puppy to do tricks and obey her commands.
