Find Your Canine Match with Doggelganger

DogglegangerYou know the old saying that dogs and their owners often look alike? Well now you can put that to the test. The Pedigree Adoption Drive in New Zealand has come up with a fun online project called Doggelganger. It’s basically human-to-canine pairing software that uses facial recognition software to scan your facial image and pair you with a dog.

I got paired with Maverick, a sweet 7 month old Whippet-Heeler mix. If you don’t like your match you can keep trying it to find a dog you like.

They give you a brief bio, age, and photo of your doggie match. You can even share your match via your favorite social sites and via email. You can also make contact with the shelter right then and there if you’re interesting in giving your match a loving forever home.

Right now this is only available in New Zealand but hopefully it will make it’s way to the US!
