13 Dog Breeds That Look Like Ewoks, For Star Wars Fans

Brussels Griffon (Griffon Bruxellois)

The first Ewok dog that serves as an inspiration for the existence of this primitive breed that first appeared in Return of the Jedi. George Lucas based these creatures on his pet, a Brussels Griffon.

Lhasa Apso

The shape of the head, eye colors, and nose resembles an Ewok, but the Lhasa Apso has almost the same coat shades as Chewbacca’s. Lhasa Apso possesses a long and smooth coat, just like Chewie’s.


This is one of the toy breeds that reminds us of an Ewok in a great manner due to its thick coat and small, short nose. The shape of its head resembles the popular bipeds as well.


These pups might have longer hair than Ewoks, but the resemblance between them is still uncanny, especially when it comes to facial features, including a short muzzle and small, dark eyes.

Toy Poodle

Only brown toy Poodles look like Ewoks, with their cozy and curly coat of medium length, their tiny teeth, and their short nose.

The Affenpinscher

The fact that Affenpinschers have human-like expressions, a scruffy face, and a short nose is essentially why they’re known as Ewok look-alikes.


The cross between a Pug and a Yorkshire Terrier can look just like an Ewok dog. The resemblance is so striking that they almost look more Ewok-like than Brussels Griffons!


This puppy breed is a much cuter version of an Ewok, and it could literally fit in your pocket, considering that they only reach up to seven inches in full maturity.

Cairn Terrier

These toy dogs do best in environments where they are free to sniff and dig around. They have the same fearless attitude toward a conflict that the Ewoks have – never backing away from action.

Shih Tzu

A furry coat gives the Shih Tzu a similar appearance to that of an Ewok, which is another name for the creature that is cute, but not very safe (according to what George Lucas had in mind).

Border Terrier

Although this species does not quite have the fluffy fur as an Ewok, we thought that due to its adorable small face and its similar coat color pattern, it might be mistaken for an Ewok.

Bouvier Des Flandres

The Bouvier des Flandres is a breed of dog that is revered for the work ethic they exhibit as working dogs, and they are adored for the devotion they show to their owner and family.


Their scruffy appearance, along with round, dark eyes and curly coat hair, is what makes Cockapoos look very similar to Ewoks. This dog is often referred to as the perfect family pet.
