Meet Yogi. Yogi is a sweet dog whose face has the Internet abuzz. That’s because of photos of him recently posted to social media have people remaking on the cute pup’s more-than-passing resemblance to a human.
Some people are smiling at Yogi’s humanlike countenance while others are deeply uncomfortable. But to Yogi’s owner, Chantal Dejardins, he’s just as normal as can be.
Desjardins says when she looks at Yogi she just doesn’t see it, but a friend of hers thought Yogi most certainly did look like he “had a man’s face” and shared a photo to reddit, where it quickly went viral.
Yogi’s photo received a flurry of comments.
“This is the most disturbing thing I’ve ever seen,” said one redditor.
“I’d feel weird petting it,” said another.
“It looks like Nicolas Cage dressed as an Ewok,” one joked.
“I laughed, then I got uncomfortable, now I’m rocking back and forth desperately trying to convince myself it’s just a face swap.”
But no, the photo is not photoshopped. Neither is this one.
Or this one.
But Chantal figures that it’s probably the way Yogi was groomed and positioned that may be what give him the humanlike effect. Because most time he’s just a regular dog, one that Desjardin says she adores. “He is the cuddliest fluffiest puppy ever!” she tells the Dodo. “He’s the sweetest!”
