It's just one of those things that are like, "Whoa, dude."

Gawker pointed out that Tonik, a poodle-Shih Tzu mix available for adoption from an Indiana animal welfare agency, actually has an "eerily humanoid" face.

Petfinder notes that the dog came to the Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group from a kill shelter in Kentucky. The personable photos were taken by Renny Mills, a professional pet photographer.

In an email to The Huffington Post, Jen Schwartz, the owner of Homeward Bound, said the shelter had recently taken in dogs that required dental work and had illnesses that required expensive treatments.

It's totally horrible that any animals -- whether they have human faces or not -- have to die because nobody wants them. Here's hoping that Tonik finds an awesome home.

For more information about adopting a pet, visit the ASPCA website.

Looks human because of its shorter than usual nose I think

It looks more like Chewbacca or an Ewok than a human. Or maybe it's just me, but that was the first thing I thought when I saw the picture.

A bit more black and red and it would look more like a Rhesus or a Gibbon. Dog with Monkey-face would have been more apt description.
