The dog has captured hearts due to its ‘uncanny’ likeness to award-winning music artist Ed Sheeran – and while most have shared a laugh at its looks, others say its human-like appearance is ‘unsettling’
Everyone has a doppelganger – but who said anything about it being another human?
An adorable dog has left people in stitches for his “uncanny resemblance” to English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.
The dog, thought to be a mix between a Lhasa Apso and Shih Tzu, has captured the hearts of social media users after his picture was shared on Reddit.
The user wrote: “This dog looks like Ed Sheeran.”
While most users agreed the dog looks like the award-winning artist, others drew their own comparisons to other famous faces.
One user said: “It looks more like Sia,” while another added: “More like Frank from Shameless”.

A third user asked: “Anyone else see a resemblance to Jesus from The Walking Dead?”
However, some found the dog’s human-like appearance unsettling, saying “This dog makes me uncomfortable – he has seen into my soul.”
Another agreed: “He looks like he’s going to give you a stern talking to because you arrived home 10 minutes later than your curfew.
“But the resemblance to Ed Sheeran is right on the money. The resemblance is uncanny.”
This is not the only dog who has been compared to a celebrity, as owner Thomas Green, 28, recently made the realisation that his dog looks like Will Ferrell.
He shared his dog’s picture on Twitter after a friend pointed out that the unlikely duo looked alike, and tweeted: “Someone said my dog looks like Will Ferrell and I can’t unsee it now.”
The post quickly went viral racking up more than 260,000 likes – and prompted people to share snaps of their own dogs’ celebrity look-alikes.
Thomas, from Houston, Texas, told The Mirror: “It was actually a dear friend of mine who said that Layla looked like Will Ferrell.
“I just laughed a little bit and pulled up a picture and was like oh my goodness she really does. It was a really good laugh, honestly.”
However, not everybody saw the funny side to Layla’s picture with some users claiming it freaked them out.
One user said: “All the dogs with human eyes honestly freak me out.”
While another added: “This particular breed freaks me out because I always see a human face when I look at this type of dog.”
