  • On the whole no, if these are real cases then they are rare, as I'm pretty sure I don't look like my Alsatian at all. Maybe thought, who knows.

    Although based on psychology crap I've done, you could argue animals take on personality and behaviors from their owner, whether that be aggression or excitement, especially when the two have been together for a while. This is all because of a cognitive psychology theory on how people adopt behaviors or schemers from role models, but for dogs their owners are usually the closest thing they have. Why it works for dogs, I'm not 100% sure, but it could be because the chemical hormone dogs relies when seeing what they consider their owner is similar to that of human hormonal for love, making the owner a potential role model.

  • My mom does look like her dog. The dog is old, is getting grey hair, and her mouth smells like a garbage dump. All three can also be said about my mom.

  • That's ridiculous, no. Maybe the accessories they make their pets wear or that the toys that their pets play with reflect the owner's personality, but they definitely don't look like the animal itself.

  • I actually have noticed this myself, sometimes they even do what their owners do. Someone once said that my cat looks like me. Now I know some people and their dogs can resemble one another but a cat and a human? Hmmm... Maybe thats why some of us choose a dog or cat with particular markings, build, eye colour... Its us as pets lol.
