Don’t cross these canines! Meet the perpetually angry huskies who are always up to mischief.
Hostile-looking huskies Ivy and Blue are three-years-old and live with their owner Daphne Erdral, 33, in New York.
After deciding to adopt a puppy, in 2014 Daphne’s boyfriend surprised her with an adorable two-month-old husky who she named Ivy.
Two weeks later Daphne’s friend asked if she wanted to adopt Ivy’s sister, Blue.
Their moody markings makes it appear they are forever frowning.
Now the two inseparable sisters have a growing fan base following their daily waggishness.
Daphne, who works as a sustainability advisor for the United Nations, said: “They are mischievous, stubborn, true escape artist and always look angry.
“However they are the sweetest, most loving and cuddly dogs.
“Their eyes paired with the black mask around their eyes makes them look like little bandits.
“They looked adorably angry the first day we brought them home and they still do.
“They look angry when they are playing, when they are eating, and even when they are sleeping.
“Sometimes I wonder whether they are indeed angry and we aren’t taking them seriously.
“But then I remind myself how furious they look when they are waiting for their treats and it reassures me.”
Daphne decided to start an Instagram called @houdinihuskies to document their daily mischief.
“Ivy and Blue are always getting themselves into trouble, remodelling our house by eating and chewing everything we own.
“They are also masterful escape artist.
“They also have the funniest expressions and sleep in the weirdest positions.
“Husky owners can relate to the moments we capture and others get a kick out the perpetually angry looking huskies.”
But Daphne reassured they are happy dogs underneath their frowns.
She said: “Their angry faces are in complete contrast with their personalities. They are free spirited and playful.
“Good natured with strangers and sociable with other dogs. They are gentle and sensitive.
“Their expressive eyes can be used to manipulate the softies of the house, which in this case is me.”
