Yogi The Dog With The Human Face Is Making The Internet Uncomfortable

mason.zimmer 2 Jan 2019

Nowadays, there's a fine line between something that's believably weird and the result of some bored Photoshop noodling. That's likely why whenever anyone posts something interesting, there's at least a couple of people lining up to call it fake.

Unsurprisingly, this question came up when the internet was exposed to a particular pooch, but not everything is so easy to explain.

Yogi here is a one-year-old Shih-poo, but that breed mixture came together in an unusual way.

After all, people sometimes notice that dogs can look a little like their owners, but that doesn't usually mean the dog is actually sporting a human face.

Yogi, however, looks a lot like he just came home from a long day at the office.

Let's get everyone's first question out of the way. This is neither a face swap nor is it Photoshop. This is Yogi's real face.

As his owner, Chantal Desjardins, told the Mirror, no photos of Yogi are doctored, adding, "I'm not a photographer at all. I think it's just his eyes and the way he's looking at the camera."

Yogi first captured the internet's attention and vague discomfort when a friend of a friend posted this photo on Reddit.

Despite looking like he's stuck in a soul-sucking office job, Chantal said Yogi is a very happy dog who loves to play and cuddle.

Chantal never noticed Yogi's "man face" and still doesn't look at him any differently, but it seems that everybody else does.

However, there's one thing that they can't seem to agree on. Yogi may look like a man, but which man?

That person may see Paul Rudd in Yogi's face, but he reminds another user of "That '70s Show" star Topher Grace.

It's hard to argue with that one. Yogi's eyes look a lot like Topher's in that picture and his fur kind of matches the facial hair on display here.

Others couldn't get the image of a furry Nicolas Cage out of their heads when they saw Yogi.


More specifically, they saw Nicolas Cage dressed as an Ewok from Star Wars, but that picture is strangely absent from the internet right now so here's his head on a llama's body.

However, it looks like somebody finally found the hardest comparison to deny.

Yogi doesn't just look like Zach Galifianakis, but this exact picture of him. This hairstyle is simply too close of a match to the fur.

Maybe now that this mystery is solved, people will stop feeling so uncomfortable.
