    Have you ever come across a dog that looks exactly like yours?

    Obviously some breeds all look very similar (Rotties, Dobes, Labs, Pugs.. that kinda thing lol), I suppose this is aimed more at people who have cross breeds or heinz 57s ;)

    Here is Ruby, my mums dog:

    And here is a little dog in a rescue not too far from us:

    I actually can't believe it, apart from the additional pair of eyes and pointy ears, they are completely identical! Even down to the black spot in the same postion on the tails!

    It does make me wonder if they are related, they could quite easily be the same age as the dog in the rescue is 7, but we have no idea how old Ruby is, but 7 is certainly a possibility.

    I've met quite a few who look like Taz and there was one on an advert a few years back that looked just like him. :)

    I always think my Molly and Skipper (Parson Russell) have very similar heads...

    Bob looks quite Rottie-ish in photos, but he so obviously isn't when seen in the flesh. Never seen a dog quite like him TBH, he's got stupidly long legs & a white undercoat
    I've seen lots of dogs of similar type to Rogue & Gypsy in Romania, they appear to be quite tough & successful at living on the streets. However, on closer examination they all have their little differences :) there was a girl rescued from Brasov who looks very like Gypsy, but she's much bigger. Rogue is one of 9 pups & they are all different, some are black & tan, some are black & cream, & the extent of their markings, their size & their build varies in each of them.

    Rogue & her siblings & mum at a reunion last year

    I kept an eye on her (as naturally I was smitten) and she was rehomed in no time :)

    Skipper is just one major scruff pot! And although he is a pedigree, it's a rarity that I see a dog that looks similar to him...

    I have spotted a couple of dogs on TV adverts that look just as scruffy as him though :)

    Nicky looks a bit like Ballybees Tummel in pictures but they aren't very alike in real life:).

    I think he might be one of a kind :D.

    Lets play a game [​IMG]

    the first is Apollo obviously, the second his sister who ended up in a rescue and the other is a dog of the same cross who lives in America

    These two are the only dogs of the same cross I've seen that look like him, though they both have a lot more white than Apollo :)
