It is often said that pets can look like their owners and the Fetch platform takes this concept to new digital heights with a facial-recognition app that matches photos of consumers to the dog breeds they resemble. The app relies on a set of algorithms to match features such as face shape, hair and eyes to similar looking dogs to pull up a close enough match.

The Fetch app is designed to be used for amusement and social sharing, allowing consumers to send in photos and instantly receive a matching for the dog breed they resemble most. The results very much depend on the photo sent in as alterations to facial expression and hairstyles can greatly effect the results.

The app has already explored testing out celebrity and well-known personalities matches such as Ellen Degeneres and Jane Goodall.
