Dog with Human Face

Take a quick glance at the tiny brown poodle/Shih Tzu named Tonik, and you might mistake him for a small child. Photos taken of Tonik, currently up for adoption in Indiana, strike eerily similar to the face of a human being. The pup was rescued from a kill shelter in Kentucky and is currently up for adoption at the Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group in Mishawaka, Indiana.  

In order to adopt the adorable pup, a cash donation of $250 is required and the purchase must be made in person as the shelter does not transport or ship their animals.

In other dog news, actress Denise Richards lost her beloved 13-year-old dog last month. Richards announced the death of her French bull dog on Twitter along with a picture of Hank:

''Last night we lost our beloved Hank ... I will miss him dearly,13 yrs old ... been there for me thru it all Best dog ever & part of our family.''

The 41-year-old actress received a wave of support from her fans who gave their condolences to the deceased pet. ''Thank you so much for your kind messages about Hank ... it means alot to me," she later added. "You guys are the best ... so thoughtful & kind. Xo."

Hank was not Richards' only pet. She has several cats and dogs in her household and is a strong advocate for pet adoption with her volunteer work for the Best Friends Animal Society.

"I am very active in their Pup My Ride program," she wrote on her blog, according to The Daily Mail. "Every other Monday when I'm not working, I go to the shelter and we take out 30-50 dogs that would otherwise be euthanized."

She adopted a puppy named Lily shortly after Hurricane Sandy devastated New York. Richards visited a Long Island animal shelter with her children and took home a black Labrador mix puppy.

''The girls named her Lily," Richards said of the puppy, according to MSN. "We went back and forth, 'Should we name her Sandy because that was the name of the hurricane?' But it's also such a tragedy. So the girls picked Lily.''
