Dozens responded saying Dr Handsome looked just like Jackson
“I can definitely see the resemblance now that everyone’s mentioned it,” West said.
“We’ve often been told ‘he’s so human’ and we agree. He’s the best boy.’
West says people in their neighborhood also hold back the pair as they take him on walks because of his humanoid appearance.
The couple rescued Dr. Handsome – originally known as Tibby – from a shelter after falling in love with him instantly.
“When we went to the shelter, it was really love at first sight. We just couldn’t resist him,” she said.
The couple changed their name to Dr Handsome after the adoption because they thought it was more ‘appropriate’. He will be three in January.
