Kiev Man Finds Dog That 'Looks Like Putin'
20 September 2013 | Issue 5217
A man in Ukraine has found a canine whose piercing gaze is strangely reminiscent of President Vladimir Putin's.
The dog, found in central Kiev and first reported by the website Obozrevatel.com, is thought to be a mix between a Staffordshire terrier and a German shepherd.
The canine even appears dressed to be a head of state, with white markings on its chest seemingly forming a furry tie.
Further details about the dog — and the man who found it — were not immediately available.
Internet commentators were quick to joke about the dog, saying that Putin looks more like the dog than the dog looks like Putin and making references to Mikhail Bulgakov's "Heart of a Dog," in which a dog turns into a man.
Popular Irish comic presenter Graham Norton asked wryly on Twitter: "Geeeeeenius! I wonder if it bites the gays?"
