KUALA LUMPUR, September 21 – A couple from Ocean Springs, Mississippi have been inundated with comments comparing their rescue dog to actor Samuel L Jackson after posting a photo of the puppy on social media.
Amber West had shared a photo of her dog, Dr Handsome, on a Facebook page Dogspotting Society where many responded that the dog looked like the 72-year-old Pulp Fiction actor.
“Am I the only one who sees Samuel L. Jackson in him?” I expect him to call me a mofo anytime, ”the Daily Mail said, quoting Ky Spangenberg, commenting on the post.
Another Facebook user attributed the resemblance to Dr. Handsome’s toothy smile.
After reading the comments, Amber said that she and her husband, Jordan, also see the similarities.
“I really see the resemblance now that everyone has mentioned it,” she said.
“We’ve been told a lot ‘he’s so human’ and we agree. He’s the best boy.
Amber said people in their neighborhood also stop them as they take her for a walk to comment on her human appearance.
Dr Handsome – formerly Tibby – was rescued from a shelter.
The couple changed their name to Dr Handsome after the adoption because they thought it was “more appropriate”.
He will be three years old in January.
