Pet Owners Mimic Their Dogs in Adorable Look-Alike Portraits

German photographer Ines Opifanti demonstrates that dog owners are experts when it comes to imitating their furry friends. “The Dog People is an ongoing project where dog owners try to mimic their dogs' facial expressions,” the artist explains. “While I don't believe in the common folk wisdom claiming dog owners become similar looking to their dogs over the years, I do believe that they become really really good in interpeting their pets subtle mimic.”

Aside from their impressive impersonations, some of Opifanti's subjects do look quite alike. One duo has a similar hair and fur color, while another's snapshot showcases their seemingly identical big brown eyes. Based on how they're posing, certain pairs appear to have the same personalities. Then again, what matters most is the noticeable love that's shared between these pet owners and their loyal companions.
