We spend so much time with our best four-legged friends that sometimes, we don’t really see the obvious. What if you have been bamboozled all this time, and this little doggo dog of yours is a spitting image of Freddie Mercury, or Baby Yoda, or the Grinch?
People on the popular Facebook group known as The Dogspotting Society are sharing pics of their bestest boys and girls for the new #LookAlikeChallenge. 4.4K people and counting have already joined the challenge and the results are totally hilarious. Who could have known that dogs are even capable of having so many faces?
From resembling a whole different animal and looking like a cartoon character, to pulling the look of a Korean boy band and personifying a meme itself, these dogs are full-on doppelgangers of the dog world. So scroll down, upvote your faves, and don’t forget to check other wholesome Dogspotting challenges here (#SmilingDogChallenge), here (#GuiltyDogChallenge), and here (#DidntWantADogchallenge).
Bored Panda reached out to Forest Lehrman, the owner of Bowie, a 4-year-old Italian greyhound who is the look-alike of Sid. Forest’s post on #LookAlikeChallenge went viral, attracting 4.4k likes and expressions. “Bowie is the most ridiculous dog I have ever encountered and I'm a groomer of 2 decades so I meet a lot of dogs.”
In fact, “Bowie gets 'Sid the sloth' everywhere he goes and whenever I post pics on social media. It never fails with that big derpy nose, long neck, and crazy-looking teeth.” Forest also said that Bowie has infinite goofy expressions, smiles on command, and can jump unearthly high.
Forest said that only a few dogs indeed have many faces and characters. “I have one dog who would probably match up with Ben Stein because she always has the same mundane expression and exact same bark pitch.”
Meanwhile, with Bowie, it’s a whole different story. “Bowie, on the other hand, is like a human trapped in a dog suit. You know just what he's thinking at any given moment simply by his expressions and they are guaranteed to make you spit out your coffee in laughter.”
