Do you think dogs start to look like their owners or did orginally?

I have a neighbor that has a dog and its facial features are similar to hers. There is an expression that goes something like this: people choose animals that look like them or they start to look like them. Do you agree?

  • Hehehe, I think it's sometimes true. We had a cocker spaniel when I was a teenager, and my brown hair with blonde highlights matched her hair pretty well.

  • Without conciously being egotistical, most people have a pretty good idea what their good points are and consider those points attractive, so naturally they consider a pet that has those features attractive and pick it for their companion animal.

  • They start to look alike, just like married couples. I think it's just an association thing.

  • I recently read that we tend to pick mates who do NOT look like instinct to prevent inbreeding!
