Doggy doubles! Do you and your dog look alike?!

Dogs look like owners 2 Silver Magazine

Do dogs look like their owners? Do you have a kitty clone?! Is it just a case of having the same colouring, or do you share mannerisms, or rock the same fashion look?

A nationwide search was launched yesterday, with animal lovers around the UK invited to take part by submitting photographs of themselves – or their family members – alongside their doppelgängers. And it’s not just about dogs.

All pets, from dogs, cats and hamsters, to birds, fish and even reptiles are invited to join in the fun


The ‘Doggie Doubles’ campaign aims to collate the UK’s largest collection of photographs of people who resemble their much-loved animals. All pets, from dogs, cats and hamsters, to birds, fish and even reptiles are invited to join in the fun – the only rule is that they need to be a dead ringer for their owner, or vice versa.

We’re not sure whether anyone could actually look like their fish, but we’d very much like to see it.

People of all ages from around the country can take part by sharing a photograph of themselves and their pet on social media, using the hashtag #DoggieDouble. So time to perfect that selfie with your lookalikey pet!
