About

Sus Dogs or Suspicious Dogs refers to images of dogs with suspicious or suspect looks on their faces as if they're up to no good or are staring at someone they think is suspicious, as well as images of dogs doing suspicious things. Sus dog images and videos became increasingly popular in the late 2010s and early 2020s around the time "sus" became a popular online slang term due to the popularity of Among Us.

Origin
