Dog-With-Human-Face-tonikMeet Tonik, a year-old poodle/Shih Tzu mix who has grabbed attention and many people’s imagination with his oddly human like face.  In this case, “man’s best friends” looks almost disturbingly like “man.”

This cute little guy was pulled from a Kentucky kill shelter by Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group of Mishawaka, Ind. and was then listed on Petfinder.  Next he somehow found himself showcased on Buzzfeed and his pic went viral…

Looking for a home, although with his notoriety, it hopefully will not be for long, his listing is just that of a cute, if average little mix pooch looking for forever home;


Tonik came to us from a kill shelter in Kentucky and there is a very sweet boy in there who is trying to figure things out and enjoy people. It seems he has not had too much socialization. He is great with other dogs. He is not dangerous, but should not be placed with young children because he will get too overwhelmed. He will need a home with lots of patience & good energy. His approx.birth date is 02/01/11 and he weighs 11#. He has been vet. checked, neutered, micro chipped, heart worm tested negative is up to date on routine shots & wormings including rabies & has been treated with advantage multi per our protocol. He has been pro. groomed since his photos were taken.

I think he adorable but maybe just a little eerie… doesn’t take much imagination at all to see an almost human face on him.  Amazing what a little mix breeding can do… 🙂
