Dog with ‘human-like face’ put up for adoption [w/pic]
Metro [UK] ^ | 2/8/13 | Jimmy Nsubuga

Posted on 02/09/2013 12:45:49 AM PST by Slings and Arrows

A dog that is said to have a face that looks like a human’s has narrowly avoided being put down and is now looking for a new home.

Tonik, a poodle-Shih Tzu cross, was destined for the scrap heap after spending time in a kill shelter in Indiana, USA.

But the odd looking mutt was saved at the last moment and is now available for adoption for a fee of £160 ($250).

The pooch is described by the Mishawaka rescue centre as a ‘very sweet boy who is trying to figure things out and enjoy people’.

The sad looking animal is healthy but the centre did warn it was not suitable for homes with young children.

Not everyone agrees the dog is cute though and it has even been described as ‘spooky’ by some internet users.

Brought to mind the dog with a man’s face in the 1978 re-make of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”.

I retract.

Somewhere TWO fathers are beaming with pride at the accomplishment of their children.

That’s Jason Tinderlake. I saw him on Leno last year.
Apparently he’s a popular actor.

With all due respect, that’s not Goth, it’s B&D.

Though I suppose there’s a good deal of overlap in the groups.

I only write about genetically modifying rabbits, not dogs.
Dogs are too unpredictable when given speech and intelligence.

He looks like a dog. He’s cute, but certainly not creepy.
