3Brazilian Man Gets Plastic Surgery to Look Like a Dog
The Brazilian man, who has not been identified by name, offered an undisclosed but huge sum of money to doctors to transplant his face with a real dog's face. The doctor transplanted the man's facial features, like ears, nose, lips, and eyebrows, with parts obtained from the severed head of a dead dog.
The man has been tagged as the first man-dog in the world following his bizarre surgery.
Note: It was later discovered that the images do not really show a living man with a dog's face. The images are the work of Brazilian performance artist Rodrigo Braga. Braga had a veterinary surgeon sew the muzzle, eyebrows, and ears of a dead dog onto a replica of his face. The artist produced a series of photographs depicting the procedure. Digital manipulation was also used on the images. An animal shelter had previously euthanized the dog used in the procedure because they could not find a home for it. The dog's body was used with the permission of local authorities. (Source 1 | Source 2)
