Dog who looks ‘exactly like world famous billionaire’ leaves people in stitches

Although he isn’t a British billionaire, he knows how to act and look like one.

A dog has left people in stitches over his resemblance to entrepreneur and business magnate Richard Branson.

The canine has captured hearts on social media after his picture was shared on Reddit with the simple caption: “My friend’s dog – he has a hairy wise old man’s face”.

In the picture, the dog appears to be scowling down the camera lens with a look of disgust on its face while being held up by one of its owners.

Users quickly jumped on the post to point out how the pooch has an incredible likeness to the founder of the Virgin Group, who now controls more than 400 companies across various fields.

One user said: “Who are we kidding? It looks like Richard Branson, CEO of Virgin.”

Another user added: “That’s Yoda’s wife and judging by the other comments Yoda married Richard Branson.”

A third user said: “It honestly looks exactly like Richard Branson – I see no difference between them, at all, whatsoever.”

However, not everyone saw the funny side to the dog’s human-like appearance, with one user saying: “Not going to lie – I would s*** myself if I woke up with that thing licking my face.”

While one user added: “This is by far one of the ugliest dogs I have ever seen”, and another said: “I don’t know why I clicked on that, now I’m going to have nightmares when I go to sleep”.

But this is not the only dog who has been compared to a celebrity, as owner Thomas Green, 28, recently made the realisation that his dog looks like Will Ferrell.

He shared his dog’s picture on Twitter after a friend pointed out that the unlikely duo looked alike, and tweeted: “Someone said my dog looks like Will Ferrell and I can’t unsee it now.”

The post quickly went viral racking up more than 260,000 likes – and prompted people to share snaps of their own dogs’ celebrity look-alikes.

Thomas, from Houston, Texas, told The Mirror: “It was actually a dear friend of mine who said that Layla looked like Will Ferrell.

“I just laughed a little bit and pulled up a picture and was like oh my goodness she really does. It was a really good laugh, honestly.”

However, not everybody saw the funny side to Layla’s picture with some users claiming it freaked them out.

One user said: “All the dogs with human eyes honestly freak me out.”

While another added: “This particular breed freaks me out because I always see a human face when I look at this type of dog.”
