A pet dog has been making the rounds online for his “human-like” face.
In an Instagram account dedicated to the Australian shepherd-poodle mix, fur parents Kevin Hurless and Tiffany Ngo continue to make netizens amused by the pup’s features that make him look like a real person—from his smile to his eyes and more.
Tiffany believes that it’s his color and eyes that make him look human. “People like to say that his eyes make him seem very wise or soulful. He has a very expressive face—he even makes a disgusted face when I’m painting my nails and he smells the nail polish,” she said in an interview with iHeart Dogs published on The Ron Project.
“When he was a puppy, we couldn’t go more than a block without someone stopping us to ask questions about him. It has become less frequent as he’s gotten older, but we still often hear about how human his face and eyes look,” added Kevin.
The reactions have been the same on social media. “That’s where we get all the comments about his human features, with some people saying he looks like a giant person or they’re marveling at his eyes,” Tiffany shared.
As a pet dog, his owners describe him as “sweet, friendly, energetic, and playful.”
“He loves all people and dogs that he meets and just wants to be friends with everyone,” continued Tiffany.
He has become even more cheerful when he got introduced to his now good friend Boba who is a Yorkie and Shih-Tzu mix. They are seen side by side in their adorable IG photos, just having fun as pet BFFs.
