Most of us wish that we can speak to the most loyal, lovable and amazing species that some call as man’s best friend, a dog. Have you ever wondered what would it be if your dog looks like a human being?
Sounds crazy but Yogi, a one-year-old brown Shih Tzu- poodle mix, has become a social media sensation due to his uncanny almost human-like facial expression.
People can’t stop talking about this dog-sensation. Photos of this “dog with a man’s face” have been doing the rounds online and to look at it, it does look like a promising face.

It all started when Chantal Desjardins, from Massachusetts, posted a photo of her freshly groomed pooch Yogi, on Facebook. It wasn’t long until some of her friends started pointing out that his face looked an almost resemblance of a human being and some even Yogi’s owner if she used editing software like Photoshop or one of those popular “face swap” apps to create the eerie effect. Chantal insisted that she had not manipulated the photo. However, after looking at Yogi’s face closely, she understood why people were asking her that question in the first place.
Internet went crazy when they started comparing the dog to a celebrity’s face.

As for what makes Yogi look so human-like, his eyes are definitely special, but it’s also his grooming. One Reddit user explains: “Probably has a lot to do with close-cut hair around the eyes, especially the brow and snout. Eyebrows are actually one of the most identifiable parts of the human face.”
