In the animal kingdom, humans aren’t the only ones who have swole goals. We’ve seen buff kangaroos, gorillas, and even dogs – but one pup in particular caught the attention of netizens for its peculiar photo.


Netizens had fun on photoshop


Earlier this week, Twitter user @LLsize_11 uploaded a picture of their dog, which has since gone viral.

The tweet reads:

I casually took a picture of my dog, but it looks like a person with huge shoulders and I can’t see it properly…

Wait, what?

If you’re just as baffled, you’re not the only one. Other netizens started sharing the tweet, and some even got creative and started photoshopping the pup to showcase its true strength.

Optical illusion confirmed


When I first looked at the photo, I was convinced I was looking at a muscular Golden Retriever that had too much time to spare doing zoomies to build up all that muscle. Well, that’s until I – along with many others – realised I’d spent all that time staring at…a doggo’s butt.
