A human-faced puppy has taken the internet by storm – but his owner admits she has never even noticed.

Chantal Desjardins, 27, posted a photograph of her two dogs Yogi and Darla online in December to show off how cute they looked.

But months later the photograph caused a storm as everyone was claiming that Yogi, the one-year-old Shih-Poo, had a human face.

Now, Chantal has been inundated with comments saying that her dog resembles the likes of Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhall and Nicolas Cage.

But despite the uproar, Chantal, from United States, admits that she has never realised that her dog looked even the slightest bit human.

Chantal said: “I never thought he looked like a human at all, but I do see it now – especially in his eyes.

“But that’s mainly in photographs, when I see him in person he still just looks like my puppy!

“When I first uploaded the photograph to Facebook, it was because my other dog Darla had bows in her hair and I thought they looked adorable.

“I didn’t even notice Yogi’s expression at the time – it was everyone else who did!

“I still think he’s one of the cutest puppy’s around, but people have said that they are scared and creeped out by his human looks.

“And although I don’t see it myself, my favourite comment was definitely being told that he looked like Nicolas Cage if he were dressed as an Ewok.”
