Dog lover Sarah Michelle Gellar often keeps her 3.5 million Instagram followers up to date with how her four-legged friends are doing.

But her latest post of her newest pooch has left her fans in hysterics.

The Buffy The Vampire Slayer star, 44, uploaded an image of her hugging her one-year-old dachshund called Franz.

The close up image saw the actress holding the small dog in her arms. With her head tilted to the side, she gazed into the distance looking away from the camera.

The dog was perfectly positioned to be mimicking the pose.

And her caption set the ball rolling for her followers to have a field day.

The actress wrote alongside the snap: "They say that dogs and their humans begin to look alike…."

Fans were quick to make comment on the resemblance.

One follower wrote: "It's true, my dog has the most sarcastic face of any animal I have ever seen."

Another commented: "Oh my God!!!! Yeeeesss it's true!!"

And a third put: "Please don’t take this the wrong way, but you two have the same nose! (In a totally cute way)."

The star had introduced her new pet to her Instagram followers a month earlier. Alongside an image of the animal she wrote: "Because clearly two kids and two puppies are not enough … we just adopted this sweet dog that needed a home.

"Meet Franz… he’s a year old dachshund and the cuddliest little guy. I’m in [heart] happy Mother’s Day to me (a little early)."

The family also have two Akitas called Kumi and Sato.

And in a follow-up post featuring the pooch, the actress seemed happy with her choice of pet.

Hugging Franz, she wrote: "Ok I think I finally understand emotional support animals. Although poor Franz- after dealing with me, he may need his own emotional support animal #daschund."

In February, the star spoke out about trying to disassociate herself with Buffy creator Joss Whedon after abuse claims arose.

Sarah took to Instagram to say: "While I am proud to have my name associated with Buffy Summers, I don't want to be forever associated with the name Joss Whedon.

"I am more focused on raising my family and surviving a pandemic currently, so I will not be making any further statements at this time."
