A doting owner has taken a series of photographs of her Grinch-like dog – who definitely isn’t feeling the Christmas spirit.

Jasmine Milton, 20, adopted Siberian husky, Anuko, when he was just eight-weeks-old and claims he’s always had a grumpy face.

Having fallen in love with him as a puppy, Jasmine, from Telford, Shropshire, watched her husky grow – however his fed-up face always remained the same.

Even at the most magical time of the year when he is decked in a scarf and antlers, and is frolicking in the snow, Anuko finds it impossible to crack a smile.

Jasmine said: “He’s always had a pretty moody face since he was a puppy – but believe it or not he’s a very gentle and quiet dog.

“He’s kind and he’s never so much as growled at anybody – just a relaxed, lazy but cool type of dog who can’t be bothered for my shenanigans.

“He likes Christmas in terms of the cold – but not when it comes to decorations he can’t touch, food he can’t eat, and me putting him in clothes.

“He’s on the naughty list this year, however. All of his Christmas presents were cancelled and instead paid for an expensive dental surgery – as he fractured his tooth by chewing too hard on an antler my brother found in the woods.”

Jasmine met Anuko when he was just five-weeks-old to help with her mental health, and quickly the two became inseparable.

She added: “I got Anuko shortly after being diagnosed with depression amongst other mental health problems.

“When I got him I had no guidance in my life – but now I’ve pulled myself together and I’m applying for veterinary school this year!”
