Snoopy has a real-life doppelgänger named Bayley

April 20, 2023

The Internet has discovered a new doppelgänger for Snoopy, the pup often seen lying on his doghouse in Charles M. Schultz‘s Peanuts comic strips—and the resemblance is uncanny, reports My Modern Met.

With a fluffy white face and floppy black ears, Bayley the Mini Sheepadoodle has quickly captured people’s imaginations as a real-life Snoopy. Her dedicated Instagram page has already garnered over 300,000 followers.

In Schultz’s comic, Snoopy is described as a beagle, and drawn with a long nose and cute rounded body. While Bayley is a different kind of breed—the result of crossing a Miniature Poodle with an Old English Sheepdog—she shares a lot with the comic’s lovable silent dog, including a black button nose and sweet dark eyes.

Bayley’s Instagram account is filled with sweet portraits taken by her adoring human. These photos and short videos make Bayley out to be the perfect model, posing calmly for the camera, which adds to the similarity between her and Snoopy.

A note to her legions of fans: She also has a birthday coming up on May 4, when she will turn two years old.
