Human face dog takes Internet by storm

Tonik the dog and wolf boy

Tonik, the dog is available for adoption — if you don’t mind owning a dog with an “eerily humanoid face.” The Indiana animal welfare agency describes Tonik as a “poodle-Shih Tzu mix.

The boy pictured on the right suffers from a condition known as hypertrichosis — or werewolf syndrome — which results in the growth of thick body hair all over his face. Tonik, the dog is pictured on the left.

Tonik the dog

The Huffington Post explains that Tonik the dog was transferred to the Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group from a kill shelter in Kentucky. Probably because the shelter workers couldn’t put down a dog with a face like that.

“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.”

Hopefully someone will see the many stories about Tonik on the Internet and adopt him.

    He doesn’t look like a human to me. He’s looks scared and like he needs some love. I’d be more than happy to give it to him…after I change his name some alcoholic gave him. Poor baby.

    I don’t think they are celebs in heaven. There’s too many of them. But you can’t hug my baby daddy. My first couple hundred years in heaven gone be spent putting them pawS on every single heffa that hugged up on my baby daddy.

    I agree and was thinking the same exact thing. that boy with a real disease has nothing to do with the dog’s story.
