A dog named Baby Husky has a lot of adorable eyes, according to a new study.
The breed has been hailed as a symbol of innocence, compassion and family by parents, who believe it is the perfect companion to a baby.
But experts say it is not a good match for children, who may get a bad image of dogs who have the eyes of a toddler or child who is autistic.
The study, published in the journal Current Biology, looked at images of seven different breeds of dogs.
It found that Baby Huskies, the smallest of the breeds, had more adorable eyes than the rest of the dogs, the researchers said.
In a separate study, a group of researchers at the University of Bristol analysed facial expressions from over 3,000 people.
They found that people who recognised the Baby Huskie as a dog also recognised it as a puppy or a kitten.
But the Baby-Husky is not the only breed that has an image problem.
A recent study in the Journal of Animal Cognition suggested the puppy or kitten face is associated with an increased risk of obesity.
Dr Elizabeth Macdonald, of the University’s Department of Psychology, said: ‘These findings suggest that the more the dog’s face is recognisable as a child, the more it is associated a positive image.’
We may have seen a correlation between the perceived puppy-dog face and obesity in our study.’
Dr Macdonald said the study was an attempt to understand how the face shapes a person’s personality and whether the traits that make a person attractive are inherited.
The research also found that there is a negative correlation between how people see and feel their dog.
She said:’It’s not that we like the dog as much as we dislike the face.
But if we see the face as attractive, we tend to see the dog in a positive light.’
Dr Mary O’Connell, of Oxford University, said that the results were important because they showed that there are differences in how people feel about dogs and how they treat them.
She added: ‘We are now in a place where we can say that we are seeing the face of a dog as a positive thing and that it might even be good for us.’
