Meet Yogi, The Adorable Dog With A ‘Human’ Face

It’s not every day that you come across a dog that has quite a human-like face, which is why Yogi became so popular on social media. As one can imagine, the internet had a hard time believing that he was for real based on his unique features.

The little Shih-poo dog had a humanoid face that was certainly different from most other dogs. It was quite baffling to look at and led to his rise on social media.

It all started when Yogi’s owner, Chantal Desjardins, uploaded a picture of her two dogs. One of them was Yogi, the other was her other dog, Daria, a Shih Tzu. Desjardins didn’t think anything of the picture and just wanted to share her two dogs. However, a great debate would soon follow after people on the internet quickly noticed that there were remarkable human-like features to Yogi’s face. And with Daria as a quick comparison, people soon were talking about how human Yogi looked.

In the photo, there is a clear difference between Yogi and Daria, as Yogi has large eyes with well-defined pupils and irises, which are a definite comparison to Daria’s dark brown eyes. Additionally, his lips were more of a cynical pout than Daria. Given these differences, people began to remark as to how human he looked.

After noticed the difference, one of Desjardins’s friends uploaded the picture to Reddit, where it went even more viral as people had lots to say. Many were convinced that the picture was a product of either photoshop or face swap. Most just were sure what to think of the bizarre occurrence.

One Reddit user said, “I laughed, then I got uncomfortable, now I’m rocking back and forth desperately trying to convince myself it’s just a face swap. [sic].”

Meanwhile, a lot of the people on the internet were occupying themselves trying to find a celebrity comparison, with many being Nicholas Cage, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ed Sheeran, or Paul Rudd.

Needless to say, the internet’s explosion came as quite a shock to Desjardins, who had never before seen the marked difference between her dog and others.

As she explained, “He’s super happy. He loves to play and cuddle. It’s funny because I really didn’t see it before. I don’t really see him differently.”

We suppose that perhaps love really is blind? Desjardins was sure to tell her dog’s many new followers that he was in fact, as he appeared in the pictures – his images were not doctored in any way.

She said, “It really isn’t [edited]. I’m not a photographer at all. I think it’s just his eyes and the way he’s looking at the camera.”

Regardless of how he may differ from other dog’s in terms of looks, there is no denying that he is adorable either way!
