Dog owners turn their pets into Disney characters with new Snapchat filter

You probably think your pet couldn’t look any more adorable.

But this new Snapchat filter can make your dog look like a character in a Disney movie.

Owners have been sharing pictures across social media of the results.

Danielle Sugden shared the tip on the Dogspoting Society Facebook group, writing: ‘For those that don’t know… Snapchat has a new filter and it basically Disneyfies your dog. YOU ARE WELCOME. Plz post your Disney dawgs here.’ She added two pictures of her Samoyeds after they were transformed by the filter.

She later edited the post to tell everyone that the filter is called ‘cartoon face’ on the app.

Of course, the filter isn’t actually created by Disney but resulting images are a lot like the style from the animated Lady and the Tramp or 101 Dalmatians movies.

To get the filter, open Snapchat and hit the face to the right of the circle button, then hit the explore button in the bottom right.

Search for ‘cartoon face’ and once it appears on screen, turn the camera on your dog and the cartoon eyes and expression should appear.

It works on humans too if you want to take a few shots of yourself too (though sadly it only works on one face at a time).

You should never physically punish your pet. It brings the animal pain and fear, and it gains you nothing. It’s a lose-lose situation. Please don’t do it.

Danielle told Metro.co.uk that the response to the post was amazing and she loved see everyone’s pictures. She said: ‘Nova, on the right, is a rescue from the meat trade. Just a year ago, she was on her way to the slaughterhouse where she would have been tortured and killed, and yet now, here she is going viral and living her best life in the UK.’ She laughed that her dog Alaska, on the left, looks like ‘a temptress’ every time she uses the filter on her.

Most successfully managed to capture their pooch’s new look but some did go a little wrong.

One owner shared a snap of their dog with the cartoon eyes appearing on his nostrils.

The picture was sarcastically captioned: ‘He looks just like a prince now from Disney.’
