‘I definitely do see the resemblance now everyone has mentioned it,’ West said.
‘We’ve been told ‘he’s so human’ a lot and we agree. He’s the best boy.’
West says that people in their neighborhood also stop the couple while they take him on walks to common on his human-like appearance.
The couple rescued Dr Handsome – who was originally known as Tibby – from a shelter after falling in love with him instantly.
‘When we went to the shelter it really was love at first sight. We just couldn’t resist him,’ she said.
The couple changed his name to Dr Handsome after the adoption because they believed it was ‘more fitting’. He will be three in January.
