Ines Opifanti, of Hamburg, Germany, first started to notice the phenomenon of look alike pets when she adopted a puppy three years ago. They often made similar expressions. In 2015, she put her photography skills to use in a series called “The Dog People.” What she found is hilarious, undeniable proof that humans and dogs are more similar than we ever hoped to imagine.
Here is Ines with her dog Fleur.
She invited 30 acquaintances and strangers to partake in the project via Facebook.
She photographed the dogs on a small podium.
She snapped shots of the owner’s best impression of their pooch.
Some similarities are uncanny.
These two even have the same coloring!
While this duo has surprised, but beautiful eyes.
Ines doesn’t believe that dogs and their owners come to resemble each other over time …
Rather, she thinks that time spent together results in spot-on impressions.
You have to admit, the proof is in the pictures.
Whether happy …
Or sad …
Dogs and their owners have an unbreakable bond. Keep up the good work Ines! We want to see a series on cats next.
