Did you know that dogs actually do resemble their owners in most cases? "Have you ever wondered: "what dog do I look like," only to realize that you look like your own dog!?!? Why do dogs looks like their owners so often? Well, most people choose dogs they are familiar with. I think it is safe to assume that you are pretty familiar with your own face, so when choosing a dog you tend to go with one that looks familiar to you, whether it be the shape, the eyes, mouth, ears, hair, etc. Aside from choosing the dog that looks like you, you also are assessing the animals traits that are most near to yours. That's why you're likely to encounter people who look like their pets and act like them too. Like dog like owner! So if you are an upbeat, energetic person you most likely are going to choose the dog running around wanting to play with everyone. And if you are a more relaxed, calm person then you are probably going to choose the dog lying down relaxing while all of the other dogs play. It's the familiarity that brings owners to their dog. The result: pets look like owners and owners look like pets. In recent studies of matching random purebred dogs to their owners, 84% of the time people are able to correctly match them. Only 62% of the time, people are able to correctly match crossbred dogs to their owners. And over time, these cross bred dogs become more and more like their owners making for a funny dog and owner blended look. Here are a few photos of people who look like their dogs:
