Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to travel the galaxy to the forest moon of Endor to find a companion that looks like an Ewok. Here are some that live right here, on Earth!

Just to give you a Star Wars refresher, Ewoks are small teddy-bear like creatures that are curious and friendly. George Lucas derived the name Ewok after the Miwok, a Native American tribe indigenous to the Redwood Forest of Northern California, where scenes for Return of the Jedi were filmed. The design of the Ewok was based mostly on the Shih Tzu, but also looks a lot like a  Pekingese or Brussels Griffon.

Here are 15 photos of dogs that we can not guarantee are in fact dogs and not Ewoks: 

1. This dog may in fact be an Ewok.

2. These guys probably don’t even need the traditional Ewok hood/vest in order to pull off their look. They could probably fend off a battalion of storm troopers with their ice cold stares!

3. Either looking off into the battlefield, or scavenging for food on Endor, this dog looks fierce enough to take on Darth Vader himself.

4. The owner of this dog was clever enough to incorporate a teddy bear into his design. I thought I was looking at a production still from Return of the Jedi when I found this one!

5. This Pomeranian would have a tough time staring down the Imperial Empire, but would probably get a good amount of petting while they invaded his home planet!

6. Not sure if dog or Ewok...

7. We will assume because of the digital enhancements that this Ewok dog must have been going for a role in one of the Star Wars prequels.

 8. This dog looks truly shocked to be an Ewok or he is starring down a rancor monster.

9. If Ewoks wore hooded sweatshirts it would likely look something like this. In some systems this could also pass for a Jedi robe.

10. This brave and mighty warrior is ready for battle and the runway adding a bit of color to his wardrobe. Let's be honest, brown on brown might be an okay look for Tattooine, but it's a little drab on Endor.

11.This convincing Ewok wasn't confident in his chances at getting cast, so he's not giving up his day job.

12. This full body suit is really doing the trick, the tiny spear doesn't hurt either.

 13. If you feel like you have the body for it, a hood is really the most accurate way to go.

Notice most of them are Brussels- would love also to share some Brussels photos with you- my Wicket was thought of as an Ewok all the time by friends and strangers.
