Doggelganger: Program Matches You With Dog That Matches…You

Love yourself? Want to adopt a dog that looks just like yourself? A program in New Zealand has found the solution: Doggelganger, the “human to canine pairing software.”

The database contains hundreds of photos of homeless pets. The user uploads their own photo and voila: the program uses facial recognition software to pair you with a dog whose face is closest to yours.

At the moment, the software itself is a bit finicky (I suggest using the webcam option and hold VERY still — make sure the box is green when you take the photo. If the voice doesn’t immediately tell you the photo is unacceptable, give it a minute, it’s loading results.) Also, the database only contains photos of adoptable dogs from New Zealand — BUT, it does raise awareness for dogs that need a home.

I’m sure if it’s a success, America will be up and creating its own version in no time!

Of course this act is outlandish, but so is the chicken being served for dinner, even if the picture deemed worthy of sharing is a less easily sensationalized chicken salad.
