It's just one of those things that are like, "Whoa, dude."
Gawker pointed out that Tonik, a poodle-Shih Tzu mix available for adoption from an Indiana animal welfare agency, actually has an "eerily humanoid" face.
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.
It's totally horrible that any animals -- whether they have human faces or not -- have to die because nobody wants them. Here's hoping that Tonik finds an awesome home.
