A couple who shared a shot of their toothy dog online have revealed how they have been inundated by people telling them the pooch looked exactly like actor Samuel L Jackson.
Amber West, 32, from Mississippi, rescued her three-year-old dog Dr. Handsome, originally known as Tibby, from a shelter.
She was so proud of her Pug- Brussels Griffon cross she wanted to show him off on a Facebook page for smiling mutts.
But dozens of people then told her and husband Jordan that their beloved pup looked exactly like the Pulp Fiction star, 72.
The canine, who has a unique face, was described by the shelter as a pug cross, but the couple are sure he has some Brussels Griffon in him
Dr. Handsome was adopted from a shelter by Amber West, 32, from Mississippi and her partner Jordan. He was originally called Tibbi, but they decided his new name was more fitting
People have stopped the couple when they are walking Dr. Handsome to comment on the animal’s human-like appearance
Amber, said: ‘I definitely do see the resemblance now everyone has mentioned it.
‘When we went to the shelter it really was love at first sight. We just couldn’t resist him.’
‘We’ve been told “he’s so human” a lot and we agree. He’s the best boy.’
The pair renamed him Dr. Handsome as they considered it a more fitting name.
Now, people cannot believe how human he looks and people stop the pair to comment on him wherever they take him for walks in their home of Ocean Springs.
After posting the pic to a group for smiling dogs, they were inundated with Samuel L Jackson references.

A third replied: ‘Yes!!! That’s what I think too.’
A fourth said: ‘Damn he looks like Samuel L Jackson.’
The couple posted pictured of their pooch in a Facebook group, only to receive numerous comments comparing him to actor Samuel L. Jackson

Another Facebook user added: ‘This dog reminded me of Samuel L Jackson, think it’s the smile.’
