Most animal lovers would agree that dogs have certain human-like qualities — as in, they have distinct personalities and are capable of feeling human emotions like joy, fear and even empathy. Rarely, however, do we mean that literally.

Meet Tonik, a poodle-shih tzu mix who’s up for adoption in Indiana after an animal welfare group took him in from a Kentucky kill shelter. Cute pups battling the odds on their journeys to finding loving homes already tend to make for popular Internet fodder, but the story of this particular canine has gone viral for an additional reason: he’s got an eerily human-like face.

Thanks to his new status as an Internet sensation, Tonik should hopefully find himself some adoptive parents soon. In the meantime, Homeward Bound, the northern Indiana animal welfare group that took him in, is getting him up to date on his shots and prepping him for life in a new home. According to his Petfinder profile, he hasn’t had much socialization but is good with other dogs. He’s been vet-checked, micro-chipped and neutered. For an adoption fee of $250, Tonik the human-faced dog could be yours.
