Doppleganger dogs

Have you always wanted a pet, but held back because you couldn't find one that looked enough like a small, furry version of yourself? Well, weird, but even so you're in luck! A New Zealand website aptly titled Doppelganger can now help you track down an adoptable dog that looks as much like you as possible, thanks to facial recognition technology. Just upload a photo, and the site will bring up a ready-to-adopt pooch that shares what the computer deems to be your facial characteristics.

As someone who may or may not have an imaginary cat alter ego (her name is Purrginia, don't think too hard about it) I think this is a huge step in the right direction for human-animal relationships. Also just a great way to raise the profile of pet adoption. Click through to the site to find your canine lookalike, and let us know how it goes in the comments.
