Ladies and gentlemen, brace yourselves, because your hearts are about to melt into a puddle. Meet Tonkey, an adorable and cuddly 4-month-old bear-coat Shar-Pei puppy who is breaking the internet with her pinch-worthy cheeks and piercing eyes. If you're looking for the origin of the term "puppy dog eyes," I think we've found the culprit.

Tonkey has become quite the social media sensation, garnering more than 160,000 Instagram followers in the past eight weeks on her account, @bearcoat_tonkey. Step aside, Sir Charles Barkley, because this little pup is making the world swoon, one Instagram "like" at a time.
