Canines look like their owners?

This young man and his caninc were at the Race For Hope Saturday in Lithia Springs, Georgia.  Lithia Springs is just outside of Atlanta.   I was struck by the look-alike eyes of the boy and his dog.   The Bassett Hound is almost 3.  I’m guessing the boy is 12 or younger.    Seeing dogs and their owners that strongly resemble each other is not new.   Go to any dog show and you’ll see what I mean.     Does that suggest that people often are attracted to dogs that resemble them or do people and canines evolve after they become members of the same household?     Perhaps a study would show that owners who look like their dogs are the exception rather than the rule?  What about cats?
