Animals that look like celebrities aren't a new phenomenon—they've been part of meme culture since before meme culture was really a thing, but they always manage to make a big splash when someone finds a new one.
Twitter user @nevona recently shared a photo of a dog who bears a striking resemblance to actor Richard Gere, and Twitter users loved it.

One user even has a dog that looks like a more recent version of Gere.
The jokes were, of course, plentiful.
