A Star Wars fan took to Reddit to share a photo of a particularly Wookiee-looking dog.

Dog Looks Like a Wookie from StarWars

Shared by Reddit user elee0228, the post has earned more than 3,000 upvotes, currently placing it among the highest-rated posts of the sub's front page.

The dog, dubbed "Chewbarka" by commenters, appears to be a Yorkshire Terrier.

A dog resembling Han Solo's fur-covered loyal companion Chewbacca — as well as the Ewoks, forest-dwelling denizens of the lush planet of Endor — won Best in Show at last month's National Dog Show.

The winner, a Brussels Griffon, went viral as result of his resemblance to the Star Wars creatures, inspiring playful tweets over his Wookiee-like appearance.


A younger Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) appeared alongside a fresh-faced Han (Alden Ehrenreich) in a recently leaked first look at Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will feature the smuggling duo years before they took a more heroic turn come Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now playing.
